The opaque car window decals are popular for both business and personal use and are offered in permanent and temporary adhesive strengths. Our custom car magnets are offered with two strength options and are available in standard and custom sizes.
What is the maximum size I can order?
Our perforated car window decals are available in a standard size of 48” x 24”. If you would like a larger size, we offer custom sizes ranging from 2” x 2” up to 600” x 50”. Van and pickup truck rear window decals typically run larger than car sizes, and may need a custom sized decal.
What kind of printing is used?
These back window decals are digitally printed using UV resistant inks. This form of printing creates striking, eye-catching colors and the graphic will not peel or rub off from the outdoor weather. These decals are crafted to last through long-term outdoor display.
Does it cost extra to design truck graphics with multiple colors?
No. Design your rear window stickers with as many colors as you would like for no extra cost. For car window advertising, we recommend using colors that will attract the attention of passing traffic.
Materials and Durability
What material are your custom rear window decals made from?
Our car and truck window graphics are digitally printed on our mesh adhesive vinyl. This vinyl has 60% print area and 40% perforated holes and comes with an adhesive backside for easy installation.
How long will this custom rear window decal last?
These car or truck stickers for back windows are designed to last between 1 – 3 years with proper care. As with all custom truck decals, continuous expose to harsh climates and direct sunlight may decrease the lifespan or fade the graphics prematurely, but that is only in extreme situations. It is important not to use high pressure washers while the decal is installed to avoid weakening the adhesive.
Will the sun fade my car back window decals?
No, the sun will not fade the custom graphics. We digitally print the car and truck rear window graphics using UV-resistant inks, so the colors stay vibrant for years. However, after years of continuous sun exposure, there might be some fading, but this is only in extreme situations.
Will these back window stickers work on trucks?
Yes, we offer window decals for pickup trucks – in all sizes. Our custom truck stickers for back windows and sliding windows are easy to install and are 100% customizable so you can showcase your personalized design or artwork. Truck rear window decals are popular for small business advertising and spreading brand awareness for local businesses.
Will these damage my vehicle windows in any way?
No, these decals will not damage your car or truck windows. We do recommend exercising caution using sharp objects like razorblades, as these may leave scratches on your window or car body.
Will my window be transparent with the decal installed?
Yes, you will be able to see out of the window with the custom rear window graphics installed. The decal works sort of like one-way-vision; you can see out from the inside but cannot see in from the outside.
Will these fit my automobile?
These decal stickers are sized to fit a wide variety of cars, trucks, and other types of vehicles. The standard size we offer is 48in x 24in, but we also have the option for custom sizes for your car and custom truck decals. If the common 48" x 24" size will not fit your automobile, measure the size you do need and type the dimensions in our custom sizing boxes in the configurator. Keep in mind, these graphics are best used with flat windows rather than curved ones, if you want the perfect fit.
Can I use my rear wiper with the decal applied?
We recommend against using your wiper while the decal is installed. Because the custom rear window graphics are made from a perforated vinyl, they could rip or tear with repeated wiper use. Additionally, it may cause damage to the wiper if it gets stuck on the vinyl.
Another common issue is applying the perforated rear window decals to rear sliding windows found in certain pickup truck models. If truck back window decals are installed, be very careful opening the window because repeated use may cause damage to the perforated decal.
Setup and Installation
Can I install this myself or do I need more than one person?
Yes, these decals can be installed by one person. We do, however, recommend having a second set of hands around when installing the decal, as this makes installation quicker and easier.
Are these rear window graphics easy to remove?
Yes, our custom back window decals are easy to remove. If you had it installed for less than a year, it removes similar to a large sticker. If you have the decal installed for multiple years and it has aged, it may be more difficult to remove. It most cases, standard cleaners and some scrubbing will remove all remnants of the decal. It is easiest to remove these decals when they are warmed up, so we recommend parking your car in the sunlight and running the car heat before removing.
How do I cut the car rear window decals to shape?
Once you have the custom rear window graphics installed in the position you would like, cut the decal around the edges of the window using a sharp blade or a precision knife. When installing custom truck decals, it is important to note there may be an extra sliding rear window that needs to be accounted for before installation.
