Car decals are a great way to show support for something or someone – like the kiddos, of course! – or just sharing important organizations, causes, and the like within your own community.
More times than not you will see cars “sporting” decals that show off their child’s team, school, or jersey number. If you’re a mom or dad feeling a bit envious of those stickers, we’ve got you covered!
There are so many resources that offer custom stickers that you can have made but why spend the money on something you can make yourself in less than 15 minutes for a few bucks?
What You’ll Need
- Vinyl sheetor letters (depending on your preference),
- X-ACTO knife
- Personal design
- Painter’s tape
- Transfer tape
Simple Word Decal
The easiest and QUICKEST way to add words to your car is using the pre-cut letters. Just take a piece of painter’s tape (or transfer tape) and place the letters face down so the sticky side is up. REMEMBER to spell the words backwards!!
To adhere the letters to the windows start with a clean surface, then carefully transfer the image. Use the edge of a credit card to make sure there are no bubbles and the vinyl is fully adhered to the glass.
Carefully remove the tape by pulling it up at a 45 degree angle.
If you want to get a little fancier, you can design your own image. Just make sure it’s not too complicated!
Personal Design Decal
Print out the image on regular paper, then cover the back of the image in pencil lead (scribble!). Lay the image with the lead area down onto the vinyl, then trace the image. It should transfer the image over
Carefully trace the image out using the knife. Make sure to do this over cardboard or something you can’t damage.
Remove all the areas that you cut out. (I removed the word “home” and a portion around the diamond.) Then use the same method as the letters to transfer it onto the glass.
