IMHO, I think red brake calipers are a bit naked without mfg's white-lettered decals or silk-screened paint.
I attempted to buy Brembo decals from Brembo USA to no avail. The people I talked to did not have a clue. They suggested contacting Italy. Perhaps Brembo silk-screens their logos onto their calipers. I think the "V" symbol on our calipers is an example of silk screening.
After a diligent internet search I found a source: http://www.naerc.com/html/emb_accessories/bnewb_brembo_caliper_decals_p90.cfm?CFID=376282&CFTOKEN=51550291.
There isn't any size information on the site, but the decals are 3.25" long and about 0.75" high, which is about the right size. They appear to be good quality being printed on 3M automotive grade performance film. They are not cheap, at $21 delivered.

In my research of the subject of Brembo brake logos, I never found any that are radiused. In fact, I cannot think of any brake mfg that radius their logos. The small size of these partiuclar decals allows them to be fully centered on the CTS-V caliper.

If you drive the V anywhere near it's abilities, you'll melt the decals right off the calipers. IMHO, if you're going to go to the trouble of painting the calipers, do it right and do it once. If you want the BREMBO name on the caliper, paint the face white. Then cut the decal into letters that you can properly place on the caliper. Then paint it red/whatever color you like. Pull the decals off before the paint turns hard and then clear coat over. You'll never have to do it again.
