Thank you Scott! That is what I thought. I didn't have any problem putting on my decal without the liquid.

Exactly! The fluid just makes the decal easier to apply for customers. Not needed at all.

Who can provide some TSF links to info about how to create the quality vinyl lettering? Would love to offer the client a combo- like we have done in these photos (we outsourced the vinyl).

Thanks TSF pals!

Jane you are doing great,, hang in there,, each one will be better than the last,,,,
It looks great,,

I am wondering if the liquid is even necessary to use with the rhinestone decals. I am curious what others think about it.

Thanks SandyJo! Hahah... we have actually had several people say that to us.... we know that the vinyl, as is, does not create any problems with violating any laws in our state regarding taillamps. But we are definately looking in to a "What if" we used rhinestones on the lights!!!

Although the application fluid is not required for application of rhinestone decals...I think because of what people will be paying for each rhinestone decal, you might decide to provide the application fluid as a safety precaution so that the customer has some repositioning flexibility during application.

If you guys/gals would just read a little further back in this thread you'll find the answer. Just to be nice, I'll put my $.02 worth in. No, its not necessary. What it does do is allow some re-positioning of the decal while applying it in case someone were to get a wrinkle or fold or something that would mess up the decal's appearance necessitating pulling it up which could damage the decal permantly. It will also allow for easier removal for a short time after application
in case they decided it should go on the other side or maybe in the middle. Good luck.
Terry

What exactly is the clear decal material the rhinestones attach to? Is it just a clear vinyl?

Hello..my name is Cindy and I am the one that owns the website that all of you, except for one, tore apart. First off...I discovered the paint protection film months and months ago and never did anything with it. I then saw Matt getting his stuff and selling the heck out of it, so I contacted him and that sort of pushed me into getting my stuff off the ground. My prices reflect the prices that I can get around where I live (TN). There is no way people will pay $20-30 for a decal or t-shirt. So in order to sell and make a little bit of my money back on my original investment, I have used this pricing structure.

Yes the designs are digitally put on the cars, but it gives the buyer a little idea of what it will look like and the actual sizes are listed as well.

I am happy that you guys are doing so well with your designs and sales..I am just one little person trying to make a living out of the small things I am capable of doing. I do lurk alot, don't post alot, because I see how people can get bashed if they say the wrong thing...don't need that..and don't say its constructive criticism because some of it is not. Really Matt has posted alot of good info here and, unless something miraculous happens, I don't see where there can be huge differences in the making of these rhinestones decals. I do have to say that I do not like the rhinestuds, they fade..so I am totally not going to use them. I am also looking for a cheaper manufacturer of the protection film. And you don't need any special formula to install the decals to anything..just make sure the area is clean and stick..the solution is only for people who need more time to reposition the decal..and this is told to them in their instructions by me.

Now that I have written my one novel for this board, I appreciate the comments made and thank whoever found the mistake for the $5.00 mom decal..that was a mistake and is being fixed now. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Thank you

Cindy

Cindy is perfectly correct on this. It all depend on where you live and the demand for these. Here in Florida they LOVE them and will pay top dollar for a good design. However in some states it may be different. You just need to know your market and sell to that market. Just because I am selling them for $20-$25 doesn't mean that YOUR customers in your are are going to pay that price. Believe me, once you make alot of these you will start knocking them out QUICK. You will start making larger template with 3-4 of the design to complete 3-4 at one time. They do take a little time to make but just know your market and what is going to sell for you. I have people at events say that they would pay $30-$35 for the MOM designs. Just because they are so unique and cool! But that is different, it is with a live customer on-site and they will receive the custom item right then. BIG difference then online sales. Everyone keep up the great work!

Hi Cindy,

I sincerely apologize if anything that I said was taken as bashing. I would never intentionally do that to anyone, ever.

I completely agree with you about different areas and understand that what Matt might get in Florida, you might not get in TN. Thanks for reminding me because it's very true.

I wish you the very best with your sales and I'm happy to see you here.
