Windscreen stickers are not something new to us and neither is it something that become a booming trend recently. These stickers as enticing and beautiful as they are, add up a very nice aura to a car or vehicle they are attached to. At the same time, they become very useful in serving a variety of purposes such as being an exclusive pass to certain dignitaries, a mark of one’s designation, or a hierarchical standpoint at a place of employment or elsewhere.
As much as one may have a burning urge to prop up a bunch of windscreen stickers on their vehicle there are a few things to know first. Remember the first and the most important part about getting a windscreen sticker is to have an accurate measurement windscreen when viewed from a distance, roughly about a meter or two away. This is because, when measured from a distance this way, a person could get a clear understanding of whether the message he or she is trying to convey or the branding is actually conveyable.
And this could also help in estimating whether or not the windscreen sticker is too big that it blocks the driver’s view a few things to note when deciding on the shape and sizes of stickers. The shape is usually determined based on the content on the sticker or more specifically what you would like to have on the sticker. If you like your sticker to have a photograph or a logo then a square sticker would be ideal. And if the wording on the sticker is as important as the image, the option would be to go for a rectangular sticker that would afford enough space to include wording in a large text size.
The next step when deciding on the sticker is to first think about how the rear end of a car window looks from the outside when looking in. If the tint on the sticker is so dark, it’ll make the inside of the car dark and indistinguishable. That draws the bottom line that, dark sticker colours or tints should always be avoided. On the other hand, giving the design a white background would make the car window look a lot more visible and provide maximum impact.
It is only very natural to get overly excited and include a bulk of the information in your head onto the sticker. After all, we are all trying to convey something through these stickers right? But, the tricky part here is that an overload of pictures or text could result in not being able to convey what you want to convey and there is absolute difficulty to fit everything into the span of a single sticker and make it all readable as well. There are countless stickers out there with several lines of a company name, telephone number, a quirky one-liner, a web address, a mobile number, a company registration number, a full postal address, and a funky image in the background.
The question here is, is it actually possible to get through that much of a mess in a split second of seeing the sticker? No, and the chances are that when people view these from about a meter away, they will definitely not understand what you are trying to convey through the sticker on the car or the vehicle.
