Sticker Materials

With so many different sticker materials available it can sometimes be difficult to know which one is best to fit your needs. Many vehicles today have tinted windows, making it difficult to see stickers placed inside. We strongly recommend outside application of stickers printed on our most popular material, White Vinyl. Our White Vinyl is specifically created for use with vehicles. It is weatherproof and able to withstand elements like UV rays and rain. It can be placed on almost every type of surface, including glass, metal, wood and plastic, and will not leave any adhesive residue behind once removed.


Protect Your Investment With Free Lamination

All of our printed stickers receive a complementary layer of matte or gloss lamination. Our lamination is not a spray-on coating but an additional layer of transparent material we add to the surface of the stickers. This laminate increases protection from UV rays, moisture, and extreme hot or cold weather. It also guards your sticker’s design against scratching or fading due to excessive handling, which is bound to happen if you place your sticker on your phone, laptop, or water bottle. When you choose to buy from CarStickers, you can rest assured that your design will look great for the duration of the lifespan of the sticker.
