Custom Rear Window Decal
Francis Becker (Rockville Centre, US)
High quality and Reliable Service

I ordered a custom rear window decal from Custom Vinyl Graphics. The decal was beautifully done and easy to install. I received a follow email with instructions on how to install the decal which was a special touch. I recommend purchasing the applicator, it was very helpful in attaching the decal. Fran Becker
