Breaking down the materials used for car signs

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 10, 2013

Car signs are available in various materials that can all be customized by size, design, and shape. The major differences between each are the purpose for which it is used, the installation process, and the products estimated life expectancy. Two important questions a car owner needs to answer are whether the material is going on the car’s body or window, and whether the material should be permanent or temporary.

Car Window

Removable: Window clings are made of a removable material which is placed on the inside of the vehicle’s window and literally clings. Outside weather such as rain, window, or snow cannot touch the sign. A car with window tint is not recommended for window clings because of the tint obstructs visibility.

Permanent: Car decals use a long lasting adhesive that is meant to be permanent. These decals can be die-cut to exact shapes or can be printed on clear material in order for the design to be showcased

Car Body

Removable: One of the more popular sign choices is a car magnet. The magnet can be quickly and more than easily removed or installed. The only trick to car magnets is making sure that it stays flap, a bent or curl magnet will not stick to the body of the car.

Permanent: Car decals as mentioned before have an adhesive which makes them relatively permanent for the car’s window or the body. It can bend over creases, curves, and any trim the vehicle has allowing it to look as if painted on.
