Do the decals adhere to canvas and fabrics?
Not very well. The decals can be made as a stencil for painting the image onto the canvas or fabric. To make a stencil for painting or glass etching the decals are cut in reverse with the image being removed from the vinyl. The paint used for painting on canvas and fabrics is called 1 Shot Sign Paint 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 send 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?
Vinyl cut out decals can be applied to most smooth surfaces that include but not limited to cars, windows, walls, trucks, boats, motorcycles, the body of any vehicle, metal, most plastics, fiberglass, mailboxes, mirrors, aluminum, painted wood, etc. Some have used the decals for floor graphics on tile.
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.
My car was in an accident and I lost my decal.
Insurance will sometimes cover the cost of your replacement decal if you provide a receipt with your insurance claim.
My decal doesn't show up well on the window.
The lighter colors show up best on car windows. When you apply the decal the application or transfer tape must be remove to expose the decal clearly. If you are seeing a frosty appearance or outline around the decal the application tape has not been removed. If the application tape is not removed during the application process rain and dust will accumulate between the window and the application tape making it bubble and wrinkle.
