Decal not showning correctly on part surface

I have a problem with decals not showing correctly in parts and drawings.

To demonstrate the problem, I have made a very simple model of a tube and the default Solidworks decal logo on the outer surface of the tube.

On the backside of the model, there is another small and distorted version of the logo.

This effect also shows on drawings and pdf.

I want to get rid of this distorted logo, because everyone wants to appear their logo correctly.

I have tried several options with extra decals and appearances, but so far I found out that the only thing showing the decal correctly is putting the diplay in "Real view"" mode. Maybe for some people this is a good workaround, but personally I do not like the "shiny" look of "Real view" in Drawings and pdf documents.

Any other suggestion/workaround is welcome.
