This article explains everything you need to know about car pinstriping... Car Placement Pinstriping can be used to follow the body line of the car emphasizing the curves that the manufacturer designed, or it can also be used to add an angle or draw attention to some part of the car that you specifically like. Though it is most often applied below the window and above the door handles, pinstriping can be applied to the lower body as well. Color The color you choose for your car pinstriping is a personal preference. Some people like subtle look and would apply a silver pinstriping to a charcoal car. Others want the pinstriping to stand out and would apply a bright red pinstriping on a white car to really make it stand out. Finish Car pinstriping is also available in a few different finish options to give you more chances to customize your car. Options include opaque, metallic, ultra metallic, blackout, reflective, and more. Dimension The width of the car pinstriping you choose is also a choice that is individual to you. For instance, if you want something that will be understated and faint, you might choose a thin 1/4" vinyl pinstriping. However, if you wanted a bold look that demands attention, a 4" vinyl stripe will give you the impact you are looking for. Types Adding to th array of options out there, car pinstriping is also available in single color, two color, tri color and multi color options. And it doesn't stop there. With the development of new and improved vinyl printing capabilities, there are also specialty car pinstripes that look like barbed wire, chains, flames and much more. Easy to Install Many car owners assume that pinstriping should be installed at the dealer and are often taken back by the steep prices they charge. But installation at the dealer is not necessary. Simply using a vinyl application solution and squeegee (which costs less than $15), you can easily do it yourself and no one will no the difference! Quality There are of course, different quality pinstriping available. It is always best to use a name brand that has been around for years and that offers a warranty. The best pinstriping will have a 7+ year warranty and are often labeled "marine grade." You want a marine grade pinstriping because this pinstriping is able to withstand the worst of the elements including UV rays and salt water. The most recommended brand is Universal Products.

Custom Rear Window Decal

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.
