For indoor use, removable vinyl works perfectly. There aren’t any harsh conditions for the vinyl to erode from. Use the vinyl on doors and windows or make monogram designs for the living room or your bedroom!
For outdoor areas or surfaces, permanent vinyl is the way to go. Decals that will be exposed to water, the cold, heat, and various other elements should be wrapped with permanent vinyl.

Protect the paint of your vehicle or any object you want with paint protection film. What is paint protection film? It is a thermoplastic, urethane film that is applied to painted surfaces to protect that paint from UV damage, minor abrasions, stone chips, key scratches, and many more things that can damage the paint. The film won’t affect the appearance as it is almost invisible and won’t be spotted unless the person is a few feet away.
You can purchase either precut or uncut paint protection film. Uncut film is sold in various widths and length and depending on the manufacturer, it ranges from 4 mil thickness to 15 mil. A professional can install it for you or you can do it yourself. Pre-cut films are made for specific cars and fit on perfectly. They are easy to install and tend to end about 1/16-inch to 1/8-inch from edges.
Paint protection film can be applied to plastic and it is a common occurrence. Headlight lenses are made of plastic and that is the most common plastic component that paint protection film is used for. If you want to remove the film, you can do just that as it comes off easily. But once you remove it, it cannot be reapplied. And lastly, if you recently got your car painted, you will have to wait. Only after 30 days from the paint job can you apply the paint protection film. We do recommend doing your research and reaching out to the manufacturer for the bets timetable as different brands use different materials.
