Window Decals

I know there was a thread somewhere that talked about this, but for the life of me I can't find it--even tried the search engine but no luck.

Anyway, I've heard some people talking about putting window decals on their cars. I stumbled upon this while browsing through Amazon.com so I thought I'd post it here.

Might be worth a try.http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...751572-6792134

Akj, Looks interesting. I think that removable window decals might appeal to folks around Election time. Might be a good idea to contact the local Offices of the major political parties plus any of the non-dangerous fringe dwelling political parties and let them know that these are avaliable. Plus printing bumpersticker type messages on them might bring in some business as well. Tom

Hi Tom

Good idea about the bumper stickers. I think the same company that makes the decals product also makes bumper sticker paper for ink-jet printers. I know I saw it on Amazon somewhere.

Let's not stop there guys. I put removeable window stickers in my windows every Christmas and Thanksgiving. How about home decorations personalized for the holiday seasons. I don't remember this suggestion in any other threads but I know there was a what to do for up coming holiday thread that this reply would fit under also. Great find Amanda.

All good ideas. Halloween might be another good one. People around here decorate pretty heavily for it.

Another thought just came to me. How 'bout a decal "I survived _________ High - 2002" for the graduates?

Well this one has me stumped...if using the decals for outside and printing them off an inket printer, how do they withstand moisture without the ink running off them?

Chris,

I'm not sure just what the process was, but we had decals printed to put on the doors of our truck. I know it was printed on a computer printer, but I'm not sure if it was an inkjet or not. Also, like I said, I'm not familiar with the process, but they've been on the truck for about three years (maybe four), and they still look great.

Chris W., I think these are the kind that are placed on the inside of the window rather than on the outside. I have seen those type before and they can be applied and removed very easily with no residual mess. Tom
