1. Know Why

Before you make a custom car decal, know why you want one. Some people prefer to have them to express their interests, and others just want to make people laugh.

Decals can also be a great way to advertise something. If you run a business, you could create a decal for your company.

Knowing why you’re making a decal will also make sure that you don’t end up with something you don’t like a few weeks later. You can, of course, take decals off, but it can be rather hard to do sometimes.

2. Look Online

Before getting started with designing, make sure to check out what decals are already available online. You never know if someone has already created your idea of a perfect decal.

Even if they haven’t, it’s worth looking at other designs to get some inspiration for your decal. Consider what you do and don’t like about different designs and take that into consideration when you’re making your own.

3. Design It

Before you go to a seller to make your custom car decals, you should try sketching what you want out on paper. Even if you aren’t a professional artist, this will be helpful for both you and the seller.

If you know your way around a graphic design program, consider using one to draw your decal. A decal seller may be able to use what you design to make your decal.

Remember that whatever you design could potentially be on your car. If something looks cool on paper or in a design program, that doesn’t mean you’ll like the way it looks on your car.

4. Think of Who Will See Your Decal

Before buying, think of who will see your decal. If you have a regular 9-5, chances are you don’t want to make a decal that says, “I Hate My Boss.”

Consider avoiding profanity for the kids who will also see your decal.

5. Install with Care

After you get your custom decal, you have to make sure to install it with care. Installing a decal isn’t as hard as you might think though.

Instead, follow some basic instructions and make sure to take your time. It won’t take more than a few minutes.

Messing up here might mean ripping the decal or folding it awkwardly onto your car. This can look ugly, and it might make you want to take it right off!
