Deciding When to Order a Replacement Car Sign Decal

// carsigns // April 14, 2015 //

We’re sure you know how important car signs are to any delivery business, they serve as advertising and for a away to alert your customers that your driver has arrived. A simple durable piece of technology that has changed marketing and delivery services in ways no one would have ever expected. They can stand up to incredible beatings while out on the road that other advertising pieces simply can’t. As durable as they are even car signs can succumb to the wear and tear of life on the move. The most common piece of any car sign to be damaged is the decal. That unfortunately is also the piece of the sign that businesses need most since it displays their graphics.

It may come as a surprise that debris doesn’t often wear out the decals and they  rarely tear. What actually brings them down is exposure to the weather after years of service. A portion of that weathered look can be taken away by simply cleaning them with Windex or 409. The decals themselves can be replaced; since they use a very strong low tack adhesive,  no residue will be left on the sign when they are removed. We sell decal sets for all our signs and it is an easy way to freshen up the look of your signs.

Another important piece of maintenance is the magnets, make sure they are clean of debris. Magnets are magnets and they with attract bits of metal. Clean them if they’re dirty and make sure to use the soft magnet covers and replace those when they wear out. Don’t ever use anything other than the HTH magnet covers on the magnets. Clothe or towels will weaken the strength of the magnets.

When the sign decals begin to give way to wear and tear business owners are left with a difficult choice. Should they replace the entire car sign or try to fix the sign decal itself?

The gut reaction of many business owners would be to scrap the entire sign; then design and order brand new ones. In some cases that will certainly be the right decision to make. There is however another option that can save businesses both time and money, replacing the car sign decal itself. When a car sign is damaged, the decal is often the only piece that takes any serious damage. When only the decal of your sign needs to be replaced which is usually the case, you can save time and money by just ordering your decal. Sometimes however it isn’t just the exterior decal of your sign that has seen better days, it is the entire car sign.

Whether it is a driver dropping the sign, or perhaps some other unforeseen destruction of the integrity of your car sign you will still need a new one. In cases like this it is usually best to order a new sign, decal and all for the top of your car. Buying the right sign from the right place can help save you time and money in the long run by providing a higher quality sign. That is a major advantage of buying a car sign from HTH inc their bodies and interior parts made with durable materials that will last for years on the road.

Yet we know that decals are put through much more of a beating than the rest of the sign and can break down faster. That is why we offer replacement decals in all different shapes and sizes making it easy to bring your signs back to life in a hurry. It’s as simple as uploading your design and placing the order. As fellow business owners we know that your time and money are precious to you which is exactly why we offer the sign options that we do.
