Posted on 13th May 2010 in Car Decals

Are you considering a car stickers or car decals for your hot ride? If so, may I suggest considering custom car stickers? There are many reasons why the custom approach is better than purchasing directly from off the shelf at your local auto parts store. Here are several reasons why you may want to consider going custom:

Correct Sizing
The most common problem consumers experience when purchasing a decal is that they tend to purchase the incorrect size. Everyone at some time or another has purchased an item at the store and once they get it home, they realize that it is the incorrect size. This happens quite frequent when consumers purchase a decal or sticker for their car. If you decide to place a custom order your for your car sticker, the company you choose to order your decal from will more than likely be the ones who will premeasured the area where you plan on having the decal installed. Not only does this insure that you will get it right the first time, it also lets you know how much area you are working with and how large or small you can go with the custom sticker.

Getting What You Want
Perhaps you have searched and searched and you still have not found the decal that you desire to get the look you want for your ride. This is not only frustrating, it is very time consuming as well. A custom sticker is one that you design or one that you and a designer draw up and create. As long as you have the idea and you can get the image onto a piece of paper, a graphic designer can create the decal of your dreams.

Professional Installation
Most often, when you have any custom work done by a local company; they put together a total package which will include installation of the product they are making for you. There is no reason, unless you do not want them to do it for you, to not have the company install the graphic because it not only makes it easier for you because you don’t have to do it, but it insures that it is installed correctly. The company installation may also come with a product and installation guarantee. This insures the product for a predetermined time period stating that the company will back the item if it shows signs of wear or defects.

Quality Product
Choosing the local decal shop to design, produce and install your custom car sticker will result in a better more quality manufactured product. Quite often a cheap decal you purchase off line is mass produced and manufactured in some other country where quality standards are not kept. Local companies that produce the decal directly from their shop with products that are intended to last, usually will not damage the body or paint of your vehicle and they come with a company guarantee.

Although there are many other benefits you will find when choosing custom car decals for your vehicle, these that have been mentioned above seem to be the most frequently discussed. Why not consider the custom route today for your vehicle and place your order for your custom car stickers today!

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.

Measurement

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.

Cost

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

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. There are so many options to choose from that making a final decision on the perfect one may time some time. 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!
