Will Vinyl Stickers Cause Damage to Your Car’s Paint?

Raccoon City Police

One of the biggest concerns that car owners have before deciding to place a sticker on their car is whether or not that sticker will cause damage to a car’s paint. This is a valid concern as car paint damage can be a time-consuming and costly issue. While some lower-quality stickers may not be safe for the body of your car, rest assured that the car decals and stickers from Vinyl Disorder are safe to use on most types of vehicle paint. Our stickers and decals are made from high-quality, OEM-grade vinyl. They’re also backed with safe, yet durable adhesive that keeps them in place without damaging the surfaces to which they’re adhered. When you order one of our vinyl decals, make sure that you choose the “car decal” option to be sure that you get the proper type.

Designed for Durability

All of our vinyl decals and stickers are made from the same premium-quality vinyl. It’s UV-resistant, waterproof and weather-resistant to ensure that your stickers and decals are built to last through even the toughest weather conditions. The same goes for the adhesive that we place on the back of each sticker and decal. We offer several different adhesive types. Each one is made to last through all kinds of wear and tear. Each of our vinyl decals comes in both wall decal and car decal options. Ensure that your decal stays put and is safe for your car by opting for the car decal choice.

Proper Car Sticker Removal Techniques

After you’ve enjoyed your car decal or sticker for some time and are ready to switch to a different decoration, be sure to use proper car decal removal techniques. Removing stickers from cars is no big deal as long as you follow a few simple steps. First, make removing the sticker much easier by warming it with either a hair dryer or a heat gun. By doing this, you’ll soften the adhesive and the vinyl, which makes it much easier to peel off the sticker. Once you’ve warmed the sticker, it should be easy to peel off without pulling up any paint with it. Resist the urge to use any kind of hard tools to scrape the sticker off. Doing so can cause unsightly scratches on your car.

Removable and Reusable Car Stickers

These stickers will give you peace of mind because they are designed to be removed easily and reapplied on different surfaces. Choose from our reusable vinyl fabric stickers and our static cling stickers. The vinyl fabric stickers are made with a special reusable adhesive that isn’t as permanent as our regular car sticker adhesive and can be removed with ease. Our static cling stickers are made with no adhesive at all and can be placed on glass as well as smooth metal and plastic surfaces.

Are Vinyl Stickers Waterproof? – Vinyl Disorder

Are Vinyl Stickers Waterproof?

You have the best spot in mind for your new vinyl sticker — maybe it’s a storefront window, the back of your vehicle, the front of a school binder or your favorite water bottle. Whatever the location, you’re probably wondering, “Are vinyl stickers waterproof?” Lucky for you, vinyl stickers from Vinyl Disorder are indeed waterproof.

All vinyl stickers available from VinylDisorder.com, including our customizable vinyl stickers, are made by using proprietary inks on high-quality and durable vinyl that is weatherproof, waterproof and designed to last for up to three years outdoors. We then add a high-quality vinyl laminate to the top of the vinyl, which increases the lifespan of the stickers to three to five years and provides both UV and scratch resistance, so your stickers will stay looking their best for a long time to come.

oct-6

We have a variety of vinyl stickers available. One of our most popular styles is the oval vinyl sticker — these stickers are waterproof and come in a variety of sizes ranging from 1-inch by 2 inches up to 6 inches by 3 inches. If you have a place in mind for your vinyl sticker but don’t see the size you need, we can also accommodate orders for custom sized stickers.

Creating a patchwork of vinyl stickers on a storefront window or car bumper? Square stickers are a perfect option and can be lined up to create a quilt of colorful artwork on any hard surface. Thanks to the waterproof and weatherproof nature of our vinyl stickers, your stick-on style won’t fade or run.

For a truly unique custom waterproof vinyl sticker, check out our clear stickers. Rather than drawing attention away from your sticker art with a white border or background, let the art stand out with clear backing that allows the background of the surface to show through. This gives your custom vinyl sticker an almost tattoo-like appearance as if it were drawn or printed directly onto the surface. Clear stickers also give your print the look of a die cut decal without the added cost.

Have a custom vinyl sticker in mind that truly breaks the mold? You can get our waterproof vinyl stickers cut to shape for whatever design you’d like. Simply choose your size, quantity and material type then upload your file, and we’ll get to work creating the custom sticker you’re looking for. All of our vinyl stickers are available in gloss, vinyl fabric, matte, clear, static cling, clear static cling, heat and reflective material finishes, so you can achieve any look you desire.

Vinyl stickers are the perfect way to show off your personal style, promote your business or support your favorite team.

How do I Remove Decals? – Vinyl Disorder

How do I Remove the Decals?

Custom Wall Graphics   VinylDisorder.com

Sometimes, you choose a decal for a space, and once it’s up decide that you’d like to move it to another room or even just a couple inches to the left. Luckily, there are ways to remove your vinyl decal without causing damage to the underlying surface. In this article, Vinyl Disorder will walk you through some of the most successful ways to remove a decal.

Car Decals

Cancer Awareness white

Are you about to sell your car? Did you add a decal that you loved at the time but have since outgrown? Or, maybe you sneezed while applying the decal and it ended up a bit crooked. Whatever the situation, it is possible to remove your car decal without causing damage to the vehicle.

First, you’ll want to heat the decal with a hair dryer — this will start to loosen the adhesive that is attaching the decal to the surface and make it easier to remove. Hold the hair dryer or heat gun over the decal until you start to see the edges curl.

Once the edges have started to curl, use a plastic blade — we’ll stress again that it should be plastic in order to avoid causing damage to your vehicle — to start chipping away at the adhesive underneath the decal. If you don’t have a plastic blade at home, most hardware stores carry a variety of options that are specifically meant for removing adhesive decals without scratching the underlying surface. You can also use your fingernails here, but be careful as the vinyl can get very hot. While using the blade (or your fingernail), try to hold it as parallel to the surface as possible to further minimize the chance of scratching the surface. If a plastic blade is just not an option, you can also try using a credit card, library card or other sturdy yet thin plastic object.

While you’re at the hardware store picking up a plastic blade, go ahead and grab a bottle of rubbing alcohol. No need to spend money on harsh chemicals or specialty adhesive removers, as our adhesives can be removed with this tried and true pantry staple. Dab some rubbing alcohol onto a paper towel or cloth, gently rub the left over adhesive to remove and you’re all set! You now have a blank canvas for your next vinyl car decal.

Wall Decals

If you’re open to choosing a less-permanent decal option from the start, your life will be much easier when you decide to remove it. Temporary decals for indoor use can also be used outdoors under the proper conditions and can be easily removed without leaving any unsightly residue behind. Once you’ve decided to move your indoor vinyl wall decal, simply use a plastic blade or credit card to gently peel the edge away from the surface. Once you have enough of an edge that you can easily grasp it, begin to peel the decal off of the surface slowly and evenly. That’s it! Removable vinyl wall decals are great options for people who like to update their style frequently or have a tendency to change their mind.

Whether you choose a permanent outdoor use vinyl decal or a removable indoor use vinyl decal, there are ways to remove them once they’re in place. If you have more detailed questions about the decal removal process our want help deciding between the outdoor and indoor use decals, reach out to us via email, phone, web chat or social media.
