FAQ

Get answers to frequently asked questions about our decals & stickers for cars & windows. How to order custom decals, shipping dates, decal colors, sizes, how to apply vinyl decals and more!

What color is the background?

The decals that we sell have no background. The background pieces are removed by hand leaving only the image. They are applied using a transfer or application tape and look painted or etched onto the surface.

What is a vinyl cut out decal?

Vinyl cut out decals are made using a computer and a large roll of durable weatherproof sign vinyl that can be applied indoors or outdoors. We use the same vinyl material that is used for vehicle graphics, exterior signage, and store window lettering. Vinyl decals don't fade like the printed types and last for years on cars, windows, trucks, RVs, and the body or window of any vehicle. The decals can be used indoors on walls, shower doors, appliances, picture frames, toy boxes, and most any other smooth surface.

How do you size the decals? Is the size listed the width or the height?

The sizes for each decal is listed on the product page in the drop down size menu. The size listed is the measurement on the decal at the largest point. If the image is taller than it is wide the decal will measure 6'' tall etc. Most decals are offered in sizes as small as 4'' and as large as 24'' We cut custom size decals when requested. When a decal is personalized we add your desired text in proportion to the image then size the decal to the size ordered so the sizes listed will include any text that has been added.

Do you have a catalog?

We use our online catalog as our visual and don’t offer a printed catalog. We add new decals regularly and it would be impossible to keep up in print. If you don't see what you want in our online catalog please use the link on our Custom Decals page and submit your request. If we don't have it we can make it.

Can I put my decal on the inside of the window?

By default, the decals are cut to be applied to the outside. If you want the decals cut to be applied to the inside please select the option for inside application on the product page. When we cut decals to be applied to the inside, the image is cut in reverse and the adhesive is on the face of the decal.

Do you offer different sizes than the ones listed?

If you need a size not listed or if you need the decal to fit within a certain size area please order the closest size and add a note in the order comments on the checkout page of the exact size that you need the decal to be cut. Please also include a valid phone number or email address so we can contact you if we have any questions.

Do you have other colors than the ones listed in the catalog?

If you need a color not listed in the catalog please make a note in the order comments on the checkout page. If we have the color we will process the order. If we don’t t have the color we will contact you by phone or by email. 

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 wear and tear on your wiper blade.

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. If you need multi-color stickers in large quantity please send us the information and we will be glad to make recommendations for a supplier if we are unable to grant your request. All custom decal orders are quoted on an individual basis.

What is an etched glass decal?

Etched glass decals are cut using a specialty gray frosted translucent vinyl and when applied to a glass surface gives the illusion of the image being etched into the glass. The etched glass decals look beautiful on tinted windows or any glass surface. Etched glass decals work great for any quick and easy home decor project, just peel and stick inside or outside.

Can I design my own decal?

I only need lettering. Can I order a text decal without any artwork?

To receive our discount & wholesale pricing please send us an email with the details and we will be glad to provide pricing along with a sample. Please attach any artwork that you may have along with your request.

Do the decals adhere to canvas and fabrics?

Not very well. The decals can be made as a one time 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.

Depending on your Insurance policy, the insurance company will sometimes cover the cost of your replacement decal if you provide a receipt with your insurance claim. If you need a receipt use the contact us form below and we will be glad to email a copy to you.

My decal doesn't show up well on the window.

The lighter color decals show up best on vehicle & car windows. When you apply the decal the application or transfer tape must be removed 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.
