This chart is to be used with products that let you choose a color in STEP 2. This chart is NOT intended for FULL COLOR printed style decals (products that have you choose a material in STEP 2).
Colors may not appear totally accurate due to monitor variations but these are actual photos of the vinyl.
All materials are outdoor rated for several years. See the bottom of this page for details on outdoor life expectancy of each color.
Wrap White (Glossy Finish)
Best used for large solid decals Has air channels in the adhesive to prevent bubbles. Conformable to complex curves
Extreme White (Satin Finish)
Great for low friction surfaces like wood, brick, plastic coolers, etc. (Special Order)
Various Chrome Colors
(Metalized) Pink Chrome *Specialty (Same as chrome but tinted orange)
(Metalized) Brushed Aluminum *Specialty (click to enlarge) NOT FOR Compound Curves*.
Mini Diamond Plate *Specialty (click to enlarge) Tread pattern is smaller than normal diamond plate tread (shown on left in first image) and has holographic look to it similar to our oil slick material. 3rd image show the material with a penny for size reference.
(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).
Gold Leaf (Click to enlarge) *Specialty (not actually made of real gold) NOT FOR INSIDE OF GLASS USE or Compound Curves*.
(Metalized) Engine Turned Gold Large Great for large decals with lots of solid fill areas. *Specialty (not actually made of real gold) NOT FOR INSIDE OF GLASS USE or Compound Curves*.

(Metalized) Engine Turned Silver Large Great for large decals with lots of solid fill areas. *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.
***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 Black *Specialty (click to enlarge) Shown next to Ultra Black in total darkness with a flash. NOT FOR INSIDE OF GLASS USE.
Reflective Yellow *Specialty (click to enlarge) Shown next to Canary Yellow in total darkness with a flash. Note that we changed reflective yellow material in November of 2019. New material is brighter (almost a neon or lemon yellow compared to the darker yellow in the past). Please consider this if you are trying to match past reflective yellow decals from us. 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
Reflective - 7 Years
Fluorescents - 2 years
Chrome (any color) - 5 Years
Diamond Plate - 5 Years
Engine Turned - 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. Times listed should not be taken as a warranty of any kind.
