Why Use Decals on Your Vehicle or Signs?

Why Use Decals on Your Vehicle or Signs?

3rd Feb 2021

Decals and stickers have a number of uses on both vehicles and signs. They're a great way to get a message across, and they're also far more affordable than having something custom-designed or engraved directly onto your sign or vehicle.

There are primarily three different types of decals and stickers that you'll use on your vehicle or signs. These include:

Safety/Warning Decals

Decals and stickers are an effective way of displaying visible warnings and safety tips to those who need them. These decals could be about speed limits and slippery areas. They can also have a more specific purpose that varies by industry.

For example, some advise what types of oil or gas should or shouldn't be used for a particular vehicle. Or, the sticker could be a reminder to first check the weight of the vehicle they're going to tow, along with its auxiliary brake requirements. There are also stickers for those working for UPS, radio-frequency controlled area stickers, and much more.


Date Stickers

What are date stickers exactly? At Dornbos, our date stickers are primarily used to protect signs. They feature the months and the last two digits of the next few years, which can then be used to indicate what month and year the sticker was first placed on the sign.

The stickers vary in text, but they communicate the same message. The sticker advises everyone that it's against the law to deface, destroy, or damage the sign in any way, and that doing so will result in prosecution. You can even have the sticker customized to contain the name, address, and contact information of your road department.

By including the month and year that the sticker was attached to the sign, violators won't be able to claim ignorance or say that the sticker wasn't there when they damaged the sign. It's a very affordable, straightforward, and effective preventative measure .


Vehicle Decals

We also offer a variety of decals that are meant to be used exclusively on your vehicle, such as for fire trucks, emergency vehicles, and other work vehicles. We even carry super bright 3M diamond grade chevron stripping .

But not all decals have to be work-related. We have decals that can be used for personal purposes. This includes an American flag decal, leatherneck decals, and so much more. If you don't see what you're looking for on our website, we ask that you reach out to us directly. We'd be happy to customize a vehicle decal for you.
