Decals For Your Vehicles
If you are looking to add a little more personality or attitude to your vehicle adding a vehicle decal is a great place to start. These decals can be funny, religious, or just add a bit of art to your ride. Before buying the first one you see it’s important to know about the different options you have for decal stickers. In this article, I will explain the different types of materials used and some tips for buying a quality decal.
Decals can be made from several different materials. Vinyl decals are currently the most popular because they are more durable than most of the other materials used, but you can also have polyester and aluminum decals. Polyester decals are generally made stiffer than the vinyl decals so they work best on flat or slightly curved objects. Aluminum foil decals are used to make metallic finished decals. All three of these types are very popular.
Another thing to think about when deciding on a certain decal is the adhesive it offers. Do you need a permanent adhesive or a removable adhesive? Smaller decals you buy will probably have self adhesive that is removable. Larger decals on the other hand, will usually require an adhesive to be applied during the placement of the decal. Choosing a permanent adhesive for larger decals is very popular just make sure you won’t be changing your mind anytime soon.
When deciding it’s important to choose a good quality decal so it will last you for awhile. When buying your decal make sure it is weather resistant. This will make your decal last for an average of 6 years and keep it from cracking in cold days or warping in the heat of extremely hot summer days. Another thing to consider is the sun. Buying a fade resistant decal will keep it from fading after prolonged exposure to the sun. While buying your decal you should also consider the area you want the decal to cover. Buying a sticker that is flexible can make the application process a lot easier if the surface isn’t completely flat.
There is a decal for every occasion available on the market and now that you know the different types of materials used, adhesive options, and have learned some tips for buying a good quality decal I’m sure that you will be able to find the perfect decal for your vehicle and your personality.
