Over the past week, 123Decal.com has seen a tremendous amount of question about the Application of Custom decals, Primarly Static Cling Decals vs. Vinyl Decals
When thinking about whether you need static cling or vinyl decals there are a few factors to consider:
1- Window Tint – Window Decals or Static Cling decals usually would be placed on the inside of the window and will be viewable to the outsite world. If you have tint on your car windows in may imped on the visibility of the decal, many areas that are hot or warm yearround usually have a high propensity to have tinted windows in cars and thus it may not be a good idea.
2- Outside or Inside – Many people are looking for a Removable Decal, which a static cling decal or window decal can be. But 123Decal.com Does not recommend using a standard cling on the outside of a moving car. They may blow away. Some people say that if you apply a static cling decal with windex that it will stay on.. I wouldnt risk it. If you plan to use a decal on the outside of a moving car we recommend a vinyl decal or removable vinyl decal.
All in all we do print our Decals with UV INK, which is not only enviornmentally friendly but also it's a great product that holds up against weather and wont fade
I once was given a political sticker and told that if i used windex it would go on and stay on. It was a Static Cling Decal. So being the optimist I am, I tried it.
I got about 4 miles down the interstate and looked back to inspect my new found knowledge to find that it was a Folk Lore of the highest Order. STATIC CLING DECALS don't do well in 75MPH on the outside of your car.
A Static Cling Decal is a great decal for indoors and inside windows so the outside world can see it. In Fact the 123Decal Static Clings are really good, we print with UV ink, so it's not only eviornmentally friendly, but very durable and it lasts againist the sunlight and wont fade.
