Question Decals

I want to put a few decals on my cart. Where do you buy decals that can later be removed without damaging the paint when it becomes time to sell?

Just a heads up.
You get paint fade on the non decal coverered exposed paintwork due to the sun and weathering.
When you remove decals, it can leave some paintwork looking like a badly done two tone paint job!

If your cart spends a lot of time in the sun, then IMHO any decal will tend to become one with the paint and will require time consuming careful hand removal. The only way I have found effective is picking off with finger nails or plastic scraper. In any case you should probably apply a good coat of wax before applying the decal, this might provide some protection.

If you leave the stick on decals on for year or two you will never get the shadow of decal removed from the paint.

I had an NFL Team decals on the front panel of my Yamaha, it was a 12" high decal, also on the sides and along the bottom of the windshield. They were on the cart for about 9 years, and then this past summer I removed all the decals after the NFL started getting an attitude that I didn't agree with. Mine came off with no problem and left no colored area. I did replace the side decals with an American Flag and the front with a Hockey team decal, the local hockey team who are currently the Stanley Cup Champions. One thing was I waxed my cart all the time with spray on wax and wipe off. Maybe that helped.
