Car stickers are a great way to decorate your car. Available in the choicest colors and styles, these stickers can be used to reflect your personality. The designs range from attractive shapes depicting flowers, animals, and insects, to more complicated designs featuring scenery and tapestry patterns. Men usually prefer macho images, and sometimes even naughty figures. Many car stickers simply carry messages instead of images. Car stickers, being very attractive, can also be applied on trucks, boats, bicycles, helmets, and any other smooth surface. The popularity of car stickers can be judged by the fact that they are auctioned in many websites.
Good-quality car stickers are made from vinyl. They usually contain adhesive on the lower part, below the design. Some car stickers which have adhesive over the design part are meant to be stuck on the inner side of the car window. Certain stickers without adhesives stick to the surface with the help of static charge. These static stickers can be moved and positioned on any surface without leaving ugly adhesive marks. Recent versions of car stickers are weather- and UV-resistant. Customized car stickers are made to order by political parties and business firms for promotional purposes.
Apart from decorative purposes, car stickers are used for official work. Any new car or truck must have a Monroney sticker on the window. This kind of car sticker contains the information of the car, such as its vehicle identification, make, model, retail price, and a detailed list of standard and optional equipment. This sticker also contains information such as engine and transmission specifications, warranty details, and fuel economy information. Monroney stickers prove handy when selling an old vehicle. The sticker acts as a historical record, containing a listing of the original equipment the vehicle contained. Monroney car stickers are mandatory for cars and SUVs. Failure to attach these stickers can result in a $10,000 fine per vehicle for the dealer.
