Posted on 15th January 2010 in Car Window Decals

There are many car window stickers to choose from and making a final decision can be quite difficult. Before you make your final decision there are a few items that you may want to consider before purchasing and applying the sticker to your window.


Let’s say you have found the sticker you have always been looking for at an online store and you are going to purchase the sticker. Before you pay for the sticker, shipping costs, taxes and packaging please consider the size of the sticker you are purchasing. This may be the sticker of your dreams, but it may not fit in the area that you intend on placing it. It would be best to pre-measure the area you plan on applying the decal to. Getting an exact measurement and application area that you can apply the sticker to will help you make the final purchase. Correctly measuring the area where the sticker will be applied can be achieved with the help of a tape measure and masking tape. Once you have the area measured out, be sure to record your findings just incase it takes you some time to find the perfect decal for your vehicle.


For some individuals the matter of cost for purchasing your car decal is not an issue. For others the cost factor in today’s economy is a concern for many. The price tag of a sticker can vary tremendously. From one dollar to hundreds of dollars, the amount can be all over the board. Basically you have to determine what the value of the sticker may mean to you and the price you are willing to pay. Each one of us has a certain set of values for specific items that we are willing to pay a pre-determined price for. If you feel the sticker is well worth it, than you will probably purchase it. If you feel that the price is too high, keep shopping elsewhere and you will probably find a sticker that is comparable to the first one you considered.


Visibility is extremely important when considering a car window sticker for your vehicle. Not only is it pertinent that there is visibility out the window for you to see other cars and pedestrians, your local law enforcement may be shining their bright pretty lights in your direction to get a closer look at your decal as well. If you are hesitant at all with the fact that your decal may be too large or may be a violation of the law, please check with your local police department rules for window visibility regulations. The traffic ticket may add more to your sticker price than you would have thought.

Application and Removal

Applying your sticker can be a real issue, especially if you have chosen a large and difficult sticker. If you are a do it yourselfer and you are operating solo applying the sticker can turn into a complete disaster if the correct steps are not taken. Once you have the sticker ready to be applied, enlist a friend or family member to aide you in the process. Or if you think the application should involve a professional, do not hesitant to pay someone to do it for you. One other item you should preconceive is the removal of the sticker. Will the sticker cause damage if removed from the area you are applying the sticker? If there is any reason to believe it will, consult a professional for help and choose another area for the car decals to be applied.

Car window stickers are a great option allowing you to add personalization to your vehicle.

Remember to take the few items listed above into consideration before you make your final purchase. Now get out there and find the decal of your dreams!
