3 Reasons Why Wearing A Cause Is Better Than Shouting It & How Custom Back Window Graphics Can Help

by Leanne Arnold on December 21, 2013  in Category_Custom Rear Window Graphics

Opinions, beliefs, foundations, movements, and causes—there are so many different things we want to represent or support as we go about our daily life. However, everyone knows at least one person in their life whose passion for their beliefs or cause is the only thing they can talk about, and that person’s persistence can become annoying, even driving people away from their cause. You don’t want to be that person, but you still want to represent your beliefs, so how do you do it?

One way is to stop talking about it and instead start wearing it. Your words are often overshadowed by the way you act, the way you look, and the way you are dressed, so why don’t you let those ways do the talking for you? Wearing your cause on your sleeve or on your belongings can be a great way to show your support without you even having to say a word. Here’s some reasons why wearing your cause can a much more effect messenger.

Visual Solidarity

When you’re trying to make an impact, little else compares to presenting a united front for a cause. Demonstrating that there is a large group of people who believe just as passionately in a cause can go a long way to making an impact on those around you. This message is even more powerful when people not only hear your united front, but also see it.

The firefighters in El Centro recognized this truth in their fundraiser for breast cancer in October. The entire department sported pink t-shirts that read “Brave enough to wear pink.” The sight of all these tough men in their bright pink t-shirts sent a powerful message to the community, helping to raise breast cancer awareness, raise money, and express their support for all those whose lives have been affected by cancer. Without saying a word, these firefighters spread their message around the community of a united front against cancer.

Viral Messages

When it comes to supporting our cause, it’s not enough to simply tell people about them, you also have to get them to remember it. You want your message to “go viral” spreading rapidly until it is easily recognized. As those who have created popular youtube videos or memes, often the key to getting an idea to go viral is to incorporate it with a powerful and memorable image.

People are more likely to remember the image and share it with others. Many fundraisers and political campaigns have recognized the power of a visual message: they often create t-shirts or clothing lines to help promote their views. Think of Toms, a line of shoes that donated a pair of shoes for every pair bought, or the image of Obama’s face in blue, red, and white.

These brands and images have spread across the nation, taking their messages with them. Whether it’s t-shirts, shoes, posters or bumper stickers, displaying a message can be the quickest way to share them with the largest audience.

A Symbol Rather than a Hero

When someone is shouting their message to all who can hear, we can easily dismiss the message as one person’s crazy beliefs. This can happen with celebrities who support a cause as well. Celebrities will often support important movements and for a while, their voice will draw people’s attention to that issue. However, when that celebrity loses interest or gets involved in a scandal, the support for that movement can fall away. Still, when one person begins a movement and others join that movement by wearing it, the movement becomes owned by the people rather than the hero.

Lance Armstrong’s “Live Strong” movement is a great example of this. For years, Lance Armstrong has worked to support cancer awareness and raise money for research to fight cancer. He spread his message of taking hold of life and living it to the fullest in the face of cancer with the yellow “live strong” bracelets sported by many cancer supporters and cancer survivors. As the scandal around Lance Armstrong has risen, many have become disheartened with the man, but still they were their bracelets proudly. The idea of “live strong” as become a movement that cannot be destroyed by Armstrong’s actions; it’s an idea that has become much bigger than its originator.

Wear it Proudly

Your actions speak louder than words, and so does your belongings and your clothing. You’re already sending messages with what you wear and what you drive, so why not use those vessels to send a clear, outright message to support the causes that you believe in strongly? Still, there are many people who don’t find graphic tees acceptable wear for their workplace or their daily lives, but that doesn’t mean you can’t represent your cause. Check out rear window graphics for your car: you can have them custom designed with an image that supports your cause. Everywhere you go, you’ll be a loud supporter of your beliefs and you’ll leave all those you encounter with a powerful image that will leave your message in their heads and hearts.

This is your place for vinyl graphics!

Custom Vinyl Graphics is fantastic! This is not my first dealing with them so I can tell you the positive service is consistent. They helped me with my initial designs and the alterations when I needed another order. They kept me in the loop during the whole process. They reminded me to double check my sizing attuned to the adage “Measure twice, cut once.” Everything was checked with me for approve before going to the printer. What you approve is exactly what you receive. There is no guessing about what is in the package when you receive it. Their representatives are knowledgeable, polite and after dealing with me, have the patience of Mom Teresa. Pricing is comparable to other places I’ve dealt with, however, the quality of service and end result put Custom Vinyl Graphics to the top of my list. So much so, that I asked that they add their logo to my design so I can advertise for them.

Great Decal

Fit perfect and looks great, high quality product!

Awesome patriotic car vinyl decal for an amazing looking car!

Flame Rip Checkered Flag

The quality is good and easy to install but I got the wrong order. I ordered the gray flame and got the red flame instead. Other then that it’s good.

Thank you for your honest review. I wish you would have contacted us before you applied the decals... we could've sent you the grey ones. I apologize for the error.

Wonderful Product

Great customer service! I received much assistance with my design. Only downside was shipping. A shipping tube verses the USPS carton would be a great improvement. Removing creases from the product because of shipping was troublesome. I am still quite happy with finished results.

Thank you for your review. The decal looks amazing!

Very Unsatisfied

Terrible communication practices

To be fair, we sent you a total of 15 replies to your inquiries. Our communication with you was constant and timely. You just hoped that we had the ability to speak via phone. To be honest, I wish we were big enough of a company to offer that as well but we are a small family business. You are entitled to your opinion but we are proud of the product we produced for you.
