Shop the very best Decals for your car from reputed sellers


No car is perfect. Most are designed to be marketable to large numbers of people, so are never tailored to you in particular. Some people go so far as to buy a new car because they “need a change.” They assume that another vehicle will represent them better. But is taking on more debt – because you want to make a personal statement – the right move? Not in our opinion. Why go into debt when you can change your image – subtly or powerfully – simply by adding a bold graphic or sophisticated pin striping to the car you drive now? Use the savings to buy yourself a new wardrobe! Decal and body graphics is the quickest and easiest way of reflecting your style. Decals are mostly vinyl stickers or wraps that are both durable and doesn’t spoil the car paint so no worry, you can change the decals often. Calendered vinyl decals do not last long, and are usually used in racing or short term advertising. They also tend to shrink. Cast vinyl decals are thinner, smoother and can stretch around curved surfaces. Laminating decals adds to their life of the decal. 

Full body wraps are vinyl decals printed on a large sheet which can be wrapped on to your car. These are usually used by advertisers on trucks, buses and taxis and are hugely customizable. They are lighter and more customizable. Wraps keep the body panel safe from small scratches. Prices depend on length of the car, design and material.

How to Apply a Decal or Sticker

Step 1

small-step-1Clean the area thoroughly with rubbing alcohol or soap and water. Do not use Windex or similar products because it will leave a residue behind that will prevent the sticker from adhering well.

Step 2

small-step-2Prepare the sticker for application by firmly rubbing a squeegee or credit card across the clear transfer tape. This removes any air bubbles that may have formed and makes the sticker cling to the transfer tape.

Step 3

small-step-3Peel the white paper backing off the sticker. If the sticker clings to the backing, slowly replace the paper backing and repeat Step 2.


Step 4

small-step-4Slowly lower the sticker onto the surface and rub it in place firmly with a squeegee or credit card. For best results, wait 24 hours before moving to the next step.


Step 5

small-step-5Slowly peel the clear transfer tape off at an angle. Be careful not to pull the sticker off the surface. If sticker pulls away from the surface repeat Step 4.
