Will my rear window defrost or wiper blade hurt the decal?
The rear window defrost will hot harm the decal. The defrost does not get hot enough to cause damage to the vinyl. If you have a rear window windshield wiper you may want to apply the decal in the top center or in a corner out of reach of the wiper blade. With repeated use of the wiper it may cause the decal to start to peel on the outer edges. This will also cause your wiper blade to wear out faster.

Do you make multi-color decals?
The decals that we sell are single color vinyl cut out decals. The only multi-color decals that we offer are the flag decals and a few others. When we make multi-color stickers and decals each color is cut individually then the colors are put together by hand.

I placed an order and excited to see the finished product! Do you have bulk order pricing?
We offer the decals at a discount when you order in quantity of 12 or more. Pricing is dependent on the design, size and quantity ordered. To receive discount pricing please email the information for the decals, design, size, quantity and any artwork that you have to [email protected]. When the information is received a sample will be provided by email along with pricing and ordering information.

Do the decals adhere to canvas and fabrics?
Not very well. We have used them for stencils for painting the image onto the canvas or fabric. To make a stencil for painting or glass etching the decals are cut in reverse. The image is removed from the vinyl. The paint used for painting on caves and fabrics is called 1 Shot Painters, speed dry UV acrylic and can be purchased at a sign supply store either locally or online.

If you need a stencil for painting or etching please email the information to us and we will be happy to set this up for you. Length, letter style, overall size and design. Simple graphics work best. It gets tedious when you work with intricate designs.

What type of surfaces do the decals stick to?
The decals are cut with the same vinyl material that is used for vehicle graphics and outdoor signage with outdoor durability of seven years.

Vinyl cut out decals can be applied to windows, walls, cars, trucks, walls, boats, motorcycles, metal, most plastics, fiberglass, mailboxes, mirrors, aluminum etc.

Clean the area well to remove any dust and oily residue. The decals will not adhere to a surface that has been waxed. You can wax over the decals after application they just won’t stick to the wax. The decals can also accept a clear coat if needed.

By default, the decals are cut to be applied to the outside. We offer the option for reverse cut for inside application during the checkout process. When decals are cut in reverse the adhesive is applied to the face of the decal.

My car was in an accident and I lost my decal.
Insurance will normally cover the cost of your replacement decal if you provide a receipt with your insurance claim. If you don’t have your receipt you can call or email and we will be glad to provide you a copy.
