What is a Decal?(back to top)
At StellarDecals.com our decals are all vector images that are die cut into colored rolls of vinyl. The decals are usually one color and have no background color. The background is cut away leaving your object to take that place. Each decal consists of three layers: the top layer (Transfer Tape) the middle layer (Vinyl Media) and the bottom layer (Wax Paper Backing). The Transfer Tape top layer allows you to grab the Vinyl Media and apply it to your Wall, Car, Boat or wherever it might be. Once you squeegee it down into place, you can then remove the transfer tape leaving you with a perfect decal. Custom decals are available on request please email us direct StellarDecals@gmail.com

What is the best way to apply a decal?(back to top)
The best way to apply a decal is using a squeegee. Take the decal and lay it on a flat surface and squeegee it so the top layer adheres again to the decal itself.

What size decal should I get? (back to top)
This all depends on where you want the decal on a car you are limited to space so you might not want that big; the most common size is 10" but if you want larger the most common is 23". The best thing to do is whip out the old measuring tape and figure out how tall and wide. If things need to be precise we recommend leaving us a note during checkout with all the details.
Do the decals have a background?(back to top)
All of the decals are die cut and one color. They are not outlined and they do not have a background the background becomes the color of the object you apply the decal to. The most common color is white because most windows have a little tint. Once applied the decal appears white and black when the black is really your window.
