Vinyl Car Decals
These vinyl car decals can be used to inform about your product or service, and amuse the viewer. They could also make an individual statement about you and your style or simply make your vehicle stand out from the others. Vinyl decals on your car could also make it more recognisable and therefore less likely to be stolen (hopefully).
Vinyl decals can range from the small simple discrete pattern that gives your vehicle a little bit of external personalisation, through to the full size image image that makes a heavyweight artistic statement.
We can supply your unique decals in all different shapes and sizes, and many different colours.
Choosing Your Decal Colour
You will normally want your decal to get noticed, and this means that you want it to stand out. The best colours for decals are White, Black and Red, as these tend to stand out on any coloured background. Colour theory though sometimes helps, and this is where we use the Colour Wheel.
Your car will be a certain colour and you take what is called the Colour Wheel and find the closest approximation to the colour of your car (or surface) on the colour wheel. You then go straight across the wheel to the other side to find the complementary or opposing colour. Click on the image to the right to expand it, and you will see that the Reds are complementary to the Blues. So, a Blue car should (theoretically) have a Red decal.
If you want less of a contrast between your car and the decal then you could use the analogous colours. These are the colours that are next to the complementary ones. Looking at Blue then the analogous colours are Blue Violet and Blue Green.
Valentus Vinyl Car Decal Designs
I have some standard designs for the vinyl car decals that I can easily customise for you at no extra cost. Obviously your text and details will be part of the package, and I can also do different colours, logos and shapes as well. We can provide them so that they can be fitted to the outside of a car, or the inside of a car window.
Vinyl decals are single application only media. The come with the vinyl sandwiched between the backing paper and the top transfer tape. You peel off the backing paper, place the decal in position and press firmly down – a credit card is good for this. You then gently peel off the top transfer tape leaving the decal stuck to the surface. The decal should last for years, but if you want to remove it then gently heat with a hairdryer, This softens the glue, and allows you to peel the characters off easily.
We can do some “no cost” changes for you and these will include
- Reasonable enlarging or shrinking to fit your area
- Removal of borders if you want a cleaner message
- Inserting your own logo or picture
- Skewing to fit the location
The picture here shows the decals on the back of my car, I could for instance have skewed them to make them a better fit to the space available, as shown below.
If you want additional symbols such gamboling pink unicorns, or silver stars for instance, then tell me how big you want them to be and we can do a sheet of those for a reasonable price, We could add different borders, different icons, different colours,
The standard designs measure approximately 43cm wide x 12cm high. We can provide them in 1, 2, or 3 colours. A 1 colour decal lists at £10.95, a 2 colour decal lists at £14.95 and a 3 colour lists at £19.95.You will find full details on our Etsy shop

You will be buying these decals to help your business, so can claim the cost of them as a business expense. Buying through Etsy also gives you certain Etsy based guarantees.
The best way to buy will be to message or email me first. Then go to my Etsy shop and order the design you want.
