Decal, Vintage VW Ad Headlines, various
Remember those awesome VW ads in the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s?
These decals are the main headlines from the various ads. Some are funny, some thoughtful. Some are quite timeless. The lettering is exactly as you'd find in the original ads... fresh out of your 1960's Life Magazine.
I use an excellent medium grey CAST Orafol vinyl for these. The grey looks very nice on glass – it’s not too stark like white, and black doesn’t show up well on glass. This cast vinyl is one of the best you can buy – it’s made for exterior, automotive applications like this. It costs way more than the average cheap calendared vinyl, but it will also last a lot longer. They go on like glass. There’s a reason OEMs use this type of vinyl for automotive stripes and graphics.
I’ve sized these stickers at approximately 30mm (1 3/8″) tall – The lengths are obviously different due to the amount of words. See the photos for an idea of how it would look in your rear quarter windows. Some of the long ones come folded and taped (see photos) for easier shipping. The fold is in a strategic spot between words, so your sticker will still install easily.
Pick your favorite or let me know if I’ve missed a good one.
