Family Car Window Decals

You know you've all seen them. Those stick figure families on the back of the minivans. Well last night I decided to join that bandwagon. I made my own and cut them out on my vinyl machine. I LOVE them! And what makes it even better is today I caught the lady behind me taking a picture of the back of my van with her phone while I was stopped at a light. She had a big grin on her face. I done good!

I wanted to do something that Dan wouldn't give me a hard time about and I wanted to make them unique. I Googled pictures of family car decals and saw one with characters from Star Wars and knew that was the one! Once Dan found out what I was trying to do he was all for it and even helped decide design, sizes and helped me out with the program issues.

It took me awhile to figure out how to make my image from Adobe Illustrator to transfer correctly to my vinyl software but after watching a couple demo videos I got it! They turned out awesome! The only thing I don't like is that the eyes on the imperial officer (representing mom) were too detailed and the vinyl cutter ripped it up, so they are just shadows now. I'm pretending they are sunglasses. But if I hadn't said anything you probably wouldn't have noticed right?

What do you think?
 Do you like the family decals people put on their vehicles? I love mine, that's for sure!

If you want to get some of these for yourself the place to go is Star Wars Spoofs.  There you can pick from all sorts of characters and even pets (droids). Very fun idea.

Those are so cute, we opted to skip people altogether and we are just nuclear symbols on my car.

I was going to order these from an etsy type shop! I wonder how the price compares to how much your materials and time added up to being? Do you know?

Those are cool. I like window and windshield decals that help describe personality and expression of views on car windows. It's like advertising -Sam
