Default Cricut vinyl on car windows

I posted this question on the Cricut thread but thought I might get more input here. I'm new to Cricut so have not had much experience with it. What I want to do is be able to cut something out of the Cricut vinyl and put it on a back car window. How would it hold up in weather and would it be possible to get it off after a while. Any info would be helpful.

I don't know the answer to your question, but would you be able to put the vinyl cling on the inside of the car window? That way you wouldn't have to worry about it holding up to the weather. (I have non-Cricut vinyl clings on the inside of my rear window....)

I don't know about the Cricut vinyl, but for most car decals, it removes easily with a hair dryer. Warm the decal a bit and it peels right off.

I'm pretty sure Cricut vinyl is for interior application. It should do okay on a car for a few months or so, depending on your local, but won't do for long term application. As long as you are sticking it on a window, you shouldn't have any problem getting it off. I wouldn't stick it on the paint.

Ask on Cricut's forum. I'm sure the people there will be able to give you an answer from their own experience.

I'm not sure about the Cricut vinyl but I had Stampin' Up!'s decor elements on my back window for over a year. It weathered fine. I just took it off to change to a different saying and it cleaned up with a little windex and a paper towel. My car sits out in the sun a lot. It's made the trip to SLC with the decal on, went through heavy snow this winter, and the windshield wiper on the rear window and the heater for the rear window did not seem to affect it! LOVE IT!!!!!! My new one is the SU logo (I am a demo) and the fancy lettering DREAM.

Thanks for all the input. I've been thinking about doing different designs for the window with the vinyl. I guess if I were to put it on the inside I would have to reverse the design if I did my initials.

I have actually had great luck with good ole contact paper for decals on the outside of my car windows. The white was pretty inexpensive and it has held up for 3 years now. I used it for "stick figures" and when I changed my DD from a baby to an older "girl" I just used the cricut scraper to scrape it off the glass, then wd40 to get the rest of the residue off.

Look on Ebay. There are a few great vendors who sell vinyl. One lady owns a sign shop and sells her "drops". Prices are awesome and it is an outdoor rated vinyl.

Here is one of her listings

She is super-sweet and will gladly answer any questions you have.

I have several signs made with vinyl for my business (non craft related)

I do not think the cricut vinyl will be a good outdoor choice, it will work better on the interior. I would reccomend the SU vinyl they sell it in sheets, very heavy duty!
