A comparison of a label having no UV lamination vs one with.

These labels have been sitting on top of my hot tub cover for almost a year now and counting. I am in Tucson, Arizona and these labels were placed in an area where they receive most of the Arizona sun and have already survived their first summer. The top label has no lamination, so it did not fare so well. The bottom label has barely faded from the original look and shows little sign of wear. The UV lamination we use is very high quality and rated for many years of outdoor use.

These labels have been pretty much in the worst case scenario situation. Under normal circumstances, I would not even recommend placing any label horizontal on the top of a surface that sees daily sunlight exposure. They should be placed vertically on the side where they will see the least amount of sun, but as you can see, even if you have to break this rule, you will be ok for a while.

Parking Permit Decals

Imprints now offers parking permit decals for both inside and outside window applications. They are available in just about any size or shape, and in a wide variety of colors. There are several materials to choose from; choose a tab below to learn more:

We use a high quality weather resistant vinyl for this application. Outside decals can be placed anywhere on the vehicle, but usually go on the front or rear windows. While offering better visibility than inside window decals, there is a greater chance of unwanted removal. Vinyl is a strong durable material and if removed will most likely come off in one piece. If you are worried about this possibility, we can cut the decals with X or other security slits within each decal or you should consider the tamper evident VOID, reflective or inside window decals.

Supplied on sheets, multiple per sheet or as individual single pieces While there is no minimum quantity required, there is a $100 minimum charge

Prices are based on a 1 or 2 standard colors. We may or may not be able to do exact color matching. Additional colors are extra.

The VOID tamper material is for outside application anywhere on the vehicle. It is similar to the vinyl, but when removed leaves a VOID pattern of the adhesive behind to show that the label has been tampered with and cannot be reused. This material is available in white or shiny silver. The white is recommend though since the silver has a shine to it which can be harder to see outside. The pattern left behind is not permanent; it can be wiped away with alcohol or other window cleaner.

Now available for inside window application. Ask for details.

Our high quality reflective material is now available for both inside and outside window application. We use an engineering grade reflective material for higher visibility at night when a light source shines on it. Reflective has a very strong adhesive that gets stronger over time. If you need to remove them, they will not come off without a fight. They may need to be scraped off. The strong adhesive gives an added level of security because of this. It would not be easy for someone to take them off and reuse them on another vehicle. We do have a lower tack adhesive reflective, but it is not as effective.

Reflective printing is a little different. Keep in mind that it is the material itself that is reflective, not the ink. When you print on reflective you block out the reflectivness in that area, so on the samples you see below, where the white is, is the reflective part. We normally adjust the design to give you the optimal amount of reflective area. We have certain colors that are transparent so they retain the reflective area. There is an additional charge for transparent colors if they are needed.

Prices include set up, sequential numbering or barcoding. There are no additional charges other than shipping (or if a logo needs to be recreated).

The decals are supplied on sheets or as individual single pieces. They are weather, chemical and fade resistant.

As with our other products, these labels are printed in house from our Tucson, AZ facility. Most orders are printed and shipped in 2 to 3 days and shipped via priority mail unless other arrangements are made.

For basic designs, we can create the artwork for you. If you have your own logo or specific design that you want, we would like it supplied (if possible) in vector format from an original .eps .ai or pdf format. Anything other than that could affect the quality of the print.

Below is pricing for some basic sizes on each of the three above materials. If you are looking for a different material or size please do not hesitate to ask.
