Memorial Decals For Cars
Are you planning to place a memorial decal on your car? Many people choose to do so when they have lost someone close to them. The truth is, there is no way that you would forget the person who has left his or her mark on your family as well as your heart. This decal is a way of honoring their passing and keeping their reminder close to you. You may even create your own design. As a result, the decal becomes custom-made for them.
Choosing the Right Decal Size
It is critical that you select the suitable size for your memory decal. The majority of decals are installed in the rear window of your automobile or truck. The smaller decals (6 and 9 inches wide) look finest in the corner of your window. Bigger sizes, which include 12-inch, 15-inch, 18-inch, and 21-inch selections, look best when centered in the rear glass.
Dark Colors vs. Light Colors
When selecting a color for your memorial decal, consider visibility and how easily it can be seen from a distance. In the back window, black does not pop out well. Except for black, brown, and dark green, most colors are plainly visible on glass. White, as well as other bright hues, fluorescents, and metallic shades stand out the most.
Memorial Decal Ideas
Listed below are some memorial decals that depict your feelings about someone you care for:
"In Our Hearts, Forever And Ever"
Our nearest and dearest never truly die. This sticker, for instance, emphasizes your commitment to preserving your loved one's memory. You may also enter the name of the deceased individual here.
"Until We Meet Again"
Many of us think that once we die, we will be reunited with our dear ones. Heaven or the afterlife is described differently in many faiths and belief systems. If you believe in something similar, a memorial decal to highlight your views may be appropriate.
"In Loving Memory Of (Name of Beloved One)"
This simple statement reminds you of a one-of-a-kind relationship you shared with someone. The decal shows your love and commitment with the one who departed. It's a simple and straightforward way to share your grief with the world around you.
- Remembering you is easy,
- I do it every day.
- I do it every day.
- that never goes away.
This small stanza perfectly shows the pain and grief one feels when a loved one passes away. You can even add the relation in the beginning like Dad or Mom, or whoever has left a void in your life.
Your Wings Were Ready But My Heart Was Not
What a perfect line to show that someone near and dear to your heart went too soon. Similarly, the demise of a baby soon after birth is a very tragic moment especially for parents. A memory decal stating “My baby was born with wings” summarizes the immense pain the parents feel.
Types Of Designs For Memory Decals
The design element of the memorial decal speaks volumes about the emotions of the aggrieved. It adds life to the message and conveys it in a more effective way. You can either use just text or amalgamate it with a design. Following are the different types of designs that one can use:
- All-text design.
- Winged or angel design.
- Floral design.
- Design for pet.
All Text Design
Feelings cannot be encapsulated in words. They can never bring out the heartache but can lessen it to a considerable extent. An all-text memorial design using beautiful fonts in a vivid vinyl shade can surely depict the pain in your heart to a considerable extent.
Winged Or Angel Design
A winged or angel memorial design shows that the one who has passed away was a good person worth living in the hearts forever and is now at a much better place among the company of the angels. It also shows that he or she will always be missed but one is content with the fact that the pain the deceased was enduring in this life has ended in eternal peace and bliss.
Flowers are an emblem of unending love for the deceased. They symbolize purity of the human soul that has departed and your remembrance and admiration for them. A floral memorial design shows that the deceased was an important part of your life and has left a huge void by leaving this world.
Design For Pet
Not only humans but pets also leave an indelible mark on our lives. They are a part of our every important moment and are our true and trusted friends. Death of a pet can be quite heartbreaking. You can express your grief through various memorial designs such as a paw print in between the wings of an angel or text signifying the importance of that pet in your life. You can also print a bone and a paw with “In loving memory of” with the name of your pet.
Text Length And Abbreviated Dates
We suggest abbreviating the dates if you write more than simply the year because your sticker will be scaled to the width of your selection, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, or 21 inches.
For example, if you select a 6 inch wide decal, simply stating "1947 - 2012" will not be an issue with this width. However, "September 3rd, 1947 through November 21, 2012," may be tough to fit in a 6 or 9 inch broad decal.
The characters and letters will be small if you try to put that many in a 6-inch space. This can make installing your sticker more difficult and such small lettering will not be visible to others as well.
For 6- or 9-inch-wide decals, we recommend utilizing only the years "1935 - 2011," or at the very least a numerical date system "10/30/1935 - 1/21/2011." Longer dates work well with 12–21 inch broad decals. Your letters will be legible.

Permanent vinyl would not simply peel away. If you want a temporary decal, use removable vinyl, which can survive outside for roughly a month.
