Frequently Asked Questions

Do car hood decals fade in the sun?

No, car hood decals don't fade in the sun, even when they have been applied to your vehicle for several years. Vinyl material is designed to repel the sun's rays rather than absorb them, meaning decals are fade-resistant.

Are decals for cars the same as shop window decals?

Yes, car decals and shop window decals are both made from graphically printed vinyl. However, the vinyl used outdoors, on the hood of a truck, for example, is also designed to withstand harsh weather conditions. Indoor vinyl is protected from the elements as it's always adhered to the inside, rather than the outside of the window.

Why do some brands of decals have higher prices?

It makes sense that different brands of vinyl have different price points when you consider that vinyl varies in durability and longevity. High-quality vinyl brands, such as Avery Dennison and 3M are more expensive because they last for up to 7 years and come with 2-year manufacturers warranties. Less expensive brands usually only last a couple of years and often don't come with any warranty.
