How to produce car stickers for local sports club?

Any useful materials and printing tips for creating car stickers.

Is cling vinyl only option?

If you want them for inside glass?......reverse print on clear them laminate with white.

Same as above really if they are for inside the window, to be viewed from the outside.

Also little trick I recently learnt to contour cut for that use... before flooding/laminating it with white vinyl, put masking tape over all the reg marks the cutter uses, lay the white down over the top, then remove the masking tape to show the reg marks again.

The cutter can now see the reg marks and cut the shape out through both the white vinyl and the clear vinyl! Obviously you'll need to adjust the cutting depth to accommodate but works a treat!

As above, although we've done both methods. Trouble is you end up with a roll of cling that rarely gets used.

If you're flooding with white, it's handy to watch your plotter read the reg marks, as our Graphtec starts reading quite far away from the mark, and it does occasionally pick up the difference between the white vinyl, and clear vinyl as the mark, and it really buggers the cuts up.

I must be missing something as i tought the easiset way would be to use white static cling its perfect as it can be contour cut im doing some freebies now for a local fire station i think the stuff is great to use and sticks really well onto car windows on the inside

Hi,

I miss something. How do you remove the masking tape after laminating?

I normally just very gently score through the white vinyl over the masking tape (very roughly) then peel away the masking tape leaving the printed vinyl underneath.
