Frequently Asked Questions
All of our decals are made from what is called "calendared vinyl". This is the same durable vinyl that you see just about everywhere you go. It is used on signs, store fronts, billboards, Semi Trucks, etc. - ...and yes, for graphics on vehicles. We use Oracal brand 651 outdoor vinyl. It is durable, weatherproof, and will not peel off once properly applied. Rest assured you are getting a quality product.
We currently are in production creating instructional videos for how to install our specific decals. However, until they are finished we recommend watching some instructional videos on Youtube. Just type in "how to install hood decals" and you will get a ton of different videos on how to do it. Most methods are the same and you will also learn what materials you may need to generate the best results. We recommend using a "wet" method for installing, this will allow you to lift and re-position the decal if needed and will help minimize bubbles.
Thats fine. Layout the decal on a flat surface overnight. This will relax the vinyl and make it less wrinkly for installing. If you use the recommended "wet" method for installation, the water will further smooth out the rippled paper to which the decal is adhered.
If you have never installed a large decal like these before, I think you will be surprised as to how easy it can be once you learn the process. However, if you just want to make sure it gets done right then we recommend hiring a professional to install it for you. Just about any local sign shop in your area will have technicians that will install your decals for a small fee. Craigslist is another good place to look - try to find someone who does sign work and they will have the skills needed to help you out.
We offer decals that will fit most cars or trucks and we call them Universal fit decals. They are designed to be trimmed down to fit or used full size depending on the size of your vehicle. For example; if you have bought a hood decal and your hood is shorter than the decal. Simply position the decal on the hood in the general area where you would like it (before you peel off the backing) and then trim off the excess where it overlaps the back of the hood near the windshield. Make sure to leave a little extra so when you install it you can wrap the vinyl around the hood at the back to give it a finished look.
All of our decals are made to order and shipped within 2 business days. To keep our costs, low we use USPS First Class Package shipping. Most orders reach our US domestic customers within 3 to 5 business days after pickup. Most of which are just the 3 days and sometimes even 2. Regardless, the most compliments we get from satisfied customers other than the quality and great looks of our decals, is how fast they received their items.
