How to Install Opaque Car Decals

The following instructions are to help you have a successful, timely install of your opaque car decal. The installation is a simple process and requires no professional help. We recommend installing your decal in an environment that is dry with a temperature above 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 1, showing a car magnet flat on the floor

Clean the desired surface with soap and water, removing all dust and dirt particles. If dust and dirt is not fully removed from the surface this may cause small air bubbles in your decal and prevent it from adhering properly. After cleaning the surface, either allow time for the surface to air dry or remove excess water with a rubber squeegee.

Step 2 showing someone wiping the side door of a car with a rag

Before you remove the backing from the decal, we recommend placing it on your vehicle to ensure that the size and fit are as you want. A dry erase marker can help you mark the edges where you want your decal to be applied.

Step 3 showing the magnet being applied to the car

Gently remove the backing by peeling the decal away from a corner. If you’re having difficulty, a piece of scotch tape placed on the backing can help create a tab for you to grip and peel away the decal.

Step 4 showing someone cleaning the magnet while on a flat surface

Carefully place the decal onto the desired surface. We recommend holding the decal upright with two hands near the top and placing only the top edge to the surface first, then use your hands to guide the decal on a little at a time. At this point only apply the decal lightly. If you need to reposition or adjust the decal you should be able to slowly and carefully peel the decal away from the body of the vehicle and reposition before the adhesive fully sets in.

Step 5 showing someone removing the magnet from the side of the vehicle

Once the decal is in place, use a squeegee* to remove air bubbles and small pockets. When using the squeegee, start in the center of the decal and move in a straight line to the right and left side of the decal—then move up and down working out any pockets or bubbles. Continue this process until you have ran the squeegee over the entire decal. You’ll want to use some steady pressure with the squeegee to work out the pockets. You may place the back liner on top of your decal during this process to avoid damage to the decal. Once the squeegee process is complete, you will not be able to reposition your decal.

**Note: If you are installing an “inside glass” opaque car decal, use a wet installation method: Mix 3 drops of household dish soap to 1 gallon of water. Use a spray bottle to gently spray that solution onto the adhesive side (printed side for inside glass) of your decal as well as the application surface. Place the decal onto the surface and move it around while it is still “wet” to the desired position. Finally, use a squeegee to remove all bubbles and excess water. Dry to finish.

Taking Care of and Removing Your Opaque Vehicle Decal

Taking Care of and Removing Your Opaque Vehicle Decal

Like all car and truck window decals, wash your opaque decal regularly to maintain appearance and longevity. Regular washing helps to prevent dirt and road grime build up. These decals are safe for most car washes. However, do not apply high pressure water for long periods of time to avoid having the decal start peeling. To remove the decal, simply peel back a corner using a razor blade and then pull the remaining decal away from the body or surface of your vehicle. You can also use the razor blade to remove any remaining adhesive residue. Be careful not to scratch the installation surface if sharp objects are used during removal.

Can the car decal be used only on a glass surface such as a window?
Asked a year ago by Signs

The decal can be placed on a window or on the side or body of a vehicle. While this ability can vary it is largely dictated by whether the surface itself is porous or not and the smoothness of the surface.

Nonporous surfaces that are also smooth are typically where your decal will be able to be placed. The opposite situation doesn’t allow for the adhesive to take hold on the surface and allows wind to get underneath the decal.

While the vehicle is in use this wind can be very powerful and cause the decal to start to peel away or even fly off altogether. Assuming you have a smooth nonporous surface on your vehicle, you should be set. If you are unsure of whether it will work on your vehicle, please don’t hesitate to ask us!

Do opaque vehicle decals stick to fiberglass?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Our opaque vehicle decal does not stick well to fiberglass. We recommend using it on glass or a similar surface. If you're looking for a decal specifically for fiberglass, we recommend using our permanent decal.

Is there a minimum order quantity for opaque vehicle decals?
Asked a year ago by Signs

No, you can order a single piece if that’s all you nee

What material is your opaque car decal made out of?
Asked a year ago by Signs
Our opaque car decals are made from a white polymeric calendered film with a grey pigmented, pressure sensitive adhesive which allows for fast and bubble-free application. This material is professional grade and durable to be used inside or outside.
Will my opaque decal be transparent or allow visibility?
Asked a year ago by Signs
No. Opaque car decals are not transparent. This is the case even when there is nothing printed on them. The actual material itself is opaque in nature. Thus, we recommend that opaque decals not be used on any car windows as it will obstruct the vision of the driver and can be dangerous. Rather as detailed below opaque car decals can be used on other locations and for other uses on a car, truck, boat or other vehicle.
Do you offer other types of vehicle decals?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Yes - we offer a number of different vehicle decals. Clear car decals offer transparency wherever they are not printed and can in some cases be used for car windows. Perforated car decals offer one way visibility regardless of what is printed on them. This latter option is the best solution for rear window graphics for vehicles. See our full offering of vehicle decals and graphics to see more options.

Are vinyl car decals the same thing as car window stickers or car window graphics?
Asked a year ago by Signs

In most cases, they all refer to a semi-permanent use car decal that adheres to the vehicle body or window using an adhesive backing. Further, once positioned on the car or vehicle they cannot be removed and repositioned. While removal is easy, trying to put them in a different spot will not result in a good looking graphic. So while we use the term car decal, if you use the term sticker or graphic, we’ll understand what you are asking for.

How thick are your custom opaque car decals?
Asked a year ago by Signs

The actual thickness of the car decals is 75 micrometers or .00295 inches. In other words, imagine the thickness of a sheet of printer paper and you have the thickness of our opaque decals. They are razor thin yet durable when placed on your car, truck, or other vehicle!

What is the lifespan of your opaque vehicle decals?
Asked a year ago by Signs
With proper care and placement your car decal can last for 5+ years. This lifespan will be impacted by usage and the situation in which it is used. For example, decals used for exterior use and used in harsh climates may have a shorter lifespan. Those used on a display car that is inside at all times will obviously last much longer. They truly are a durable solution regardless of the usage.
Will the exposure to sun or the elements ruin my custom car decal?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Over an extended period, the sun will impact any type of sign, including car decals. Nonetheless, we print with a UV ink that should keep your decal looking sharp for years to come.
