How to Remove Vinyl Sticker from a Car

How to Remove a Vinyl Sticker from a Car

Removing a vinyl sticker from your car can be much easier than you think. Our vinyl stickers are designed to last through several years in all types of weather. So you may assume that they’re difficult to remove. This, however, is not the case. If you follow a few simple steps, you can have that sticker off in no time without causing any damage to your car paint or windows. Removing stickers or decals from your car’s body and its windows are slightly different processes. Neither one requires any special tools. All you need is a couple of commonplace objects that you probably already have in your home. When you’re ready to remove the sticker, all you need is a hair dryer or a heat gun and a razor blade.

Best Way to Remove a Sticker from Car Paint

Car paint can be a bit tricky when it comes to vinyl stickers. You don’t want to accidentally damage your car’s paint and risk causing more damage down the road. The best way to remove a vinyl decal or sticker that has been applied to your car’s paint is to warm the sticker with a hair dryer or a heat gun first. By heating the bumper sticker up, you’re softening the vinyl and the adhesive, which allows the sticker to be peeled off with very little effort. One thing to remember when removing stickers from cars is to never pick at a sticker on car paint with sharp or hard objects. All it takes is one scratch in your paint to start a chain reaction of peeling paint and eventually, rust on your car. Always make sure to peel the sticker off gently and avoid scraping at it with tools.

Best Way to Remove Stickers from Car Windows

keep calm and don't get

Removing vinyl stickers from car windows is a very similar process to removing them from the body. You’ll want to use the same heating technique with your hair dryer or heat gun. This has the same effect and softens the adhesive on the back of the sticker. The one difference in the car window sticker removal technique is that you can use a razor blade to make removal easier. Simply work the flat edge of the blade underneath the sticker to help detach it from the surface of the glass. Make sure that you don’t run the blade edge along the glass in a cutting motion to avoid scratching your windows.

Removable and Reusable Car Sticker Options

If you’re looking for more temporary vinyl sticker options so that you can avoid having to remove permanent adhesive from your car, we also carry a variety of reusable stickers. Our reusable vinyl fabric stickers are made with special reusable adhesive that can be applied to almost any hard and smooth surface.

Difference Between Stickers and Labels – Vinyl Disorder

Stickers vs. Labels

Both include graphics and adhesives and are cut to a particular shape — so what’s the difference between stickers and labels? In this article, Vinyl Disorder will review these two very popular branding options and help you decide which is best for your particular situation.


Labels are different from stickers in that they tend to be much more informational. Companies and individuals generally tend to use labels to share their website address, share their phone number, identify ownership over something or otherwise impart details to others. Customized labels are available in a variety of sizes, shapes and quantities from Vinyl Disorder to achieve the result you’re looking for.

Some sticker designs can pull double duty as labels. One of the best types of stickers to use as a label is clear stickers. By using clear stickers as labels, you avoid having the sticker background draw attention away from the information on the label and allow the surface to show through. Clear stickers from Vinyl Disorder can be cut to any shape that suits your design and come in a variety of finishes to create a professional and high-quality look.

Want to draw extra attention to your label? Specialty vinyl stickers are the way to go. These stickers can also double as labels and make a great option thanks to the wide range of finishes in which they are available. Chrome, carbon fiber, dry erase, gold leaf and more — whatever you have in mind, Vinyl Disorder has a style to match.

Whatever you choose as the basis for your label, remember to keep the design straightforward and informational in order to get the most out of your creation.

Stickers are different from labels in that they serve as more of an opportunity to showcase your personal or corporate style in a bold way. Whereas labels are meant to be informative, stickers are for style. Take this chance to create a design that speaks to your personality and represents the vibrancy of your brand.

Try giving your custom vinyl stickers a more unique and professional appearance by opting for cut to shape stickers from Vinyl Disorder. The outline of these stickers follows the design of your graphic, which allows for less white space around the border and in turn lets your sticker design take center stage.

Love using custom vinyl stickers to promote your brand, event or band but hate the unsightly bubbles that form under the material when you apply them to a surface? Air release vinyl stickers are the answer. These specially-designed stickers allow air bubbles to escape through the material, which enables you to avoid that undesirable bubbled appearance. This material still comes in a variety of beautiful finishes including gloss, matte, satin and carbon fiber.

When it comes down to it, labels and stickers can generally be used interchangeably — in fact, many customers are now choosing to use stickers as labels thanks to their higher levels of durability and quality. Thanks to our premium choices in ink, vinyl and laminates, your stickers will last for years to come whereas a traditional label can fall victim to moisture and general wear-and-tear faster than a sticker would.

If you have any questions about options available through Vinyl Disorder, please don’t hesitate to contact us — we can be reached by phone, email, web chat or social media.

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.

How do I Remove Decals? – Vinyl Disorder

How do I Remove the Decals?

Custom Wall Graphics

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.
