Do bumper stickers damage car paint?

Car bumper stickers do not necessarily damage car paint. Bumper stickers will only damage the paint of a car if removed incorrectly.

To remove a bumper sticker from a car, first heat the sticker with a household hairdryer to loosen the adhesive, then slowly peel off the sticker. If you feel any resistance from the adhesive, reheat the sticker until the adhesive loosens up and the sticker comes away easily.

How much does it cost to put custom decals on a car?

Buy your vinyl stickers from a reputable graphics company such as Edge Stickers, and get a quote from a local vehicle decal fitter to install them onto your car.

How long does vinyl car wrap last?

A vinyl car wrap can last up to five years if well maintained. However, excessive exposure to UV light can shorten the lifespan, while at the same time making it more difficult to remove. If your vehicle is parked constantly outside then a car wrap may only last 12 months.

If a removable vinyl is used when the wrap is produced then, this too, will shorten the lifespan of the wrap.

Are stickers on cars trashy?

“Trashy” is a very subjective term. What one person finds attractive is often completely different to someone else’s preferences.

However, whatever the design, car stickers should be printed by a reputable business, else they can look cheap and not stay in good condition for very long. Edge Stickers design and create professional looking bumper stickers and vehicle window stickers.
