Vinyl Vehicle Graphics FAQ


Why put Vinyl Graphics on your vehicle compared to painting the designs on? Well, for most the answer is easy. Vinyl offers a durable yet changeable solution. Do you get tired of looking at the same car or truck day in a day out. Then this might be a great solution for you! With the ability to change the look of you vehicle quickly and easily you can also switch the design as often as you want. We offer 1000's of designs and many color combinations to choose from. Vinyl graphics are also very affordable compared to painting the design on.

Are they easy to apply?

I'm not gonna lie. It is easy when applying to a flat or slightly contoured surface but if your crossing a side molding or applying to a rounded surface it may be difficult and require alot of patience. Of course the larger you go then it may be a little harder. In general most people use the wet method and the graphics are easy to apply.

Are they easy to remove?

Removing can sometimes take more time than applying the graphics. Peel slowly as not to remove any paint (very rare) and if it leaves some glue you can remove it with adhesive and glue remover sold at most autoparts store and even Walmart. You also may try heating the graphic a little with a heat gun. Be careful, heat guns get really hot and could damage the surface if to much heat is applied.

Will it remove paint?

If you have an aftermarket paint job and they didn't prep/sand the surface well before painting then yes, it could possibly remove the paint. To prevent this you may want to heat the graphic a little and peel super slowly at a sharp angle in the other direction. You shouldn't have to worry about a factory paint job but I would still use caution when removing.

How long do they last?

Most vinyl we use is rated at 5-6 years outdoor. Most vehicle graphics will last this long or more but weather conditions and many other variables can affect its life either way.

Is there a warranty?

All graphics are made for you in the color you choose at time of purchase so there is no warranty or returns allowed. All vinyl vehicle graphics are test inspected before shipment. Please see our feedback. We very, very rarely have anyone with a problem.

How long have you been making vehicle graphics and decals?

We been doing it for over 10 years now. We know all the tricks and tips, like rounding slightly all pointy corners of the graphics, to make sure you get a great product!
