Various Chrome Colors
Fluorescent Pink *Specialty (Click Image to enlarge). Shown next to our soft pink in the middle and pink chrome on the right. Fluorescent is the brightest pink available. NOT FOR INSIDE OF GLASS USE
Glossy Black Carbon Fiber *Specialty Click to enlarge. Looks like real carbon fiber! NOT FOR INSIDE OF GLASS USE or Die-Cut decals. Sheet form only.
(Metalized) BLACK Diamond Plate *Specialty (click to enlarge) MOST REALISTIC diamond plate vinyl available. This works best on medium to large size decals that have a fairly solid design. The pattern is the size of real Diamond Plate (this remains the same no matter what the size of decal).
(Metalized) Engine Turned Gold Small Great for smaller decals since the pattern is much smaller than our standard gold engine turned vinyl. *Specialty (not actually made of real gold) NOT FOR INSIDE OF GLASS USE or Compound Curves*.
(Metalized) Pink Chrome *Specialty (Same as chrome but tinted orange)
(Metalized) Engine Turned Silver Small Great for smaller decals since the pattern is much smaller than our standard silver engine turned vinyl. *Specialty (not actually made of real gold) NOT FOR INSIDE OF GLASS USE or Compound Curves*.
(Metalized) Oil Slick * Specialty NOT FOR INSIDE OF GLASS USE or Compound Curves* This vinyl is hard to photograph. Has an "oil on water" look to it. Raninbow pattern shifts as you move. Looks much better in person.
Dark Smoke This is a dark tinted vinyl that allows some color below the decal to show through. The example photo shows the the Dark Smoke installed (on the left side) on 4 different colored surfaces (Red, Orange, Silver, and Yellow). Works great for shadows!
***Paint Mask Vinyl This is used for making a stencil for painting. You apply the decal, paint over it and remove the decal. What is left is the same design that is shown on the website but it is now PAINTED on the surface. This is done using a block design in which the design is cut out of the block/rectangle. If you need us to leave all the material within the block so only the cuts are made we can do that too. Just make note in the comments box when you order. This vinyl is much easier to remove than regular vinyl so it is only for TEMPORARY ONE TIME USE. It is a yellow and is semi-transparent.
***Clear Vinyl This is used ONLY for protecting a decal. Select the "contour" option and clear as the color. You may apply the clear over the top of the decal to give your decal extra protection against the elements though this is not required. Not listed as a color option (due to confusion with customers) but is available if needed.
|*Compound Curve Definition: A compound curve is one that would bend in 2 separate nonlinear directions. Think of a ball shape; this would be a compound curve. Most vinyl that will not stretch to a compound curve can still be bent around a simple curves (like and edge of a surface). And designs that have a lot of "open areas" within the design may still work on very mild compound curves.
*Special Notes for Reflective Vinyl.
| Reflective White *Specialty (click to enlarge) On the RIGHT is the Reflective white in both images. The vinyl on the left is the Arctic White. The Reflective is a pearl white during normal light. It has a tendency to look light metallic silver in certain lighting. NOT FOR INSIDE OF GLASS USE. || Reflective Blue *Specialty (click to enlarge) Shown next to royal blue in total darkness with a flash. NOT FOR INSIDE OF GLASS USE. |
Reflective Green (Street Sign) *Specialty Click Images to enlarge. First Photo is no flash. Second photo shows it with flash next to our standard green vinyl on the right. NOT FOR INSIDE OF GLASS USE.
Outdoor Life Expectancy for your decals. This is a rough estimate from the manufacturer of each color and is based on "normal" outdoor conditions. Extreme conditions can shorten life expectancy while if the decal is inside or garaged for most of its life will greatly increase the life of the decal.
Standard Colors - 6 Years
Olive Green - 10 Years
Etched Glass - 5 Years
Engine Turned - 5 Years
Reflective - 7 Years
Fluorescents - 2 years
Chromes (any color) - 5 Years
Diamond Plate - 5 Years
Carbon Fiber (Metalized) - 5 Years
Ultimate Carbon Fiber - 5 Years
Brushed Aluminum - 5 Years
The life expectancy is provided by the manufacturer of the vinyl and is an approximation of how long it will stand up against fading, cracking and peeling when left outdoors. This time can be extended if the decal does not sit in the sun or weather every day. You may also wish to cover the corners with a clear fingernail polish (especially helpful on small pointed parts). This gives added protection against the corners peeling up. This should not be taken as a warranty of any kind.
We can Special Order about any color or style of decal material you can imagine ($100 minimum charge). See some examples below.
