Sunday Special: How About a Truck Tailgate Graphic?

Some states frown on rear window graphics for the back window of a vehicle.  However, there’s a new wrinkle ….

Are you aware that  most rear window graphics are convertible into a graphic for the back of your truck (or other vehicle)?

Rear Window Graphics

Essentially, a rear window graphic is a piece of vinyl that is 50% vinyl and 50% holes.  It makes it possible to see out of the back window (for safety); yet the person standing outside of the vehicle can’t see inside.

Good reasons for adding a rear window graphic:  It reduces heat inside the vehicle, protects the upholstery from fading and offers privacy and safety (a single woman might feel safer where it isn’t obvious that she’s the only  person riding in the car/truck).

It is easy to find your vehicle in a crowded parking lot, because it is different … not exactly like the dozens of other cars of the same color, make and model.

Rear Window Graphics set your vehicle apart from the rest! Take your vehicle out of the 'wall-flower' class!

 ~

Truck Tailgate Graphics

These graphics do NOT go on the back window because they are solid vinyl.  They are laminated for long-wear.

Installation is like that of the rear window graphic and should last more than 5 years.  Easily removed from your car or truck, the vinyl won’t mar the paint finish.

In fact, having a tailgate graphic actually protects your paint job from minor wear-and-tear.

Care of Vinyl Graphics 

Whether your graphic is for the tailgate or the back window, there are some rules for protecting your investment.

1)   Avoid running the graphic through a car wash for at least a week.  This gives the adhesives time to firmly bond to the vehicle.

2)  Commercial car washes are fine. If you are using a do-it-yourself car wash, do not hold the wash wand closer than ten inches to the graphic’s surface.

Prices & Sizes

I’ll cover this next weekend.  In the meantime, if you are interested, drop a line to my email (marylouise @ greatghilliesandgraphics.com) and I’ll get a price for you and email it back!

Sunday Special: Army Rear Window Graphics With Snap!

Our Army is the largest branch of our armed forces.  So naturally, they should have some super graphics, right? You ‘betcha!  To look at them all, Military Rear Window Graphics. (All 5 branches are in this category; the Army graphics start about mid-page.)

~

The Army Corps of Engineers: Their mission "is to provide vital public engineering services in peace and war to strengthen the nation's security, energize the economy, and reduce risks from disasters."
