Window Stickers

I would like to affix my Air Forums and VAC stickers to the inside of the window rather than the outside. I think it will last longer if it's on the inside of the window. Since the "sticky" part is on the backside of the VAC sticker, does anyone have an idea on how to affix it to the inside of the window so that it is facing outwards? Thanks for your input

They make those window films that cling to windows electrostatically. I wonder if they would be strong enough to hold a sticker in place along with their own mass? They come in a variety of colors, including frosted looks.

Check out my post #509 it may help, if the window isn't tinted too

dark.

You might try it without the powder, if you want to keep that option open.

You could ask Rob and Andy to start purchasing their decals from me so that they could have them with reversed adhesive! Plus my pricing is much better than anyone elses.

Thanks for the great ideas everyone! I am still confused as to whether I can stick the sticker from the inside.....does the soap and squeegee method work on the sticker (one that has the sticky side on the back) or should I just give up and use tape or stick it on the outside of the window?

Hot melt glue, duct tape, JB Weld, west system... all those should hold it

The car I drove in high school had a radiator that was made almost entirely of JB Weld (by the time I was through with it). Good stuff.

I'd check into the window clings. I bet that will work. The Big Boxes carry it.

Cut a piece of Lexan that will fit the inside of the window and stick those suckers to the Lexan.
