Baby Helmet Bling Facts and Questions
How do I apply the decals?
For small stickers, they are just peel and stick. For some designs, including name decals, you will receive a piece of transfer paper on top of the sticker. Please see our How to apply stickers page for more information.
What are your stickers made from?
I only use non-toxic Oracal vinyl. Oracal vinyl is a high quality waterproof durable vinyl made for indoor and outdoor use, so it is very durable.
How are your stickers different from other helmet sticker companies?
While other sticker companies only use cut colored vinyl, I also use printable vinyl for some multi-colored designs (same as car decals, bumper stickers, car wraps, etc.).
Can I paint the band/helmet first?
Yes. You can use a variety of paints such as craft acrylic paints, just make sure whatever you use is non-toxic. Consult with the band/helmet makers for more details on your particular brand of helmet.
Should I cover the stickers with Mod Podge?
Yes if don't plan to change out the stickers. You can use glossy or matte finish Mod Podge depending on your preference. Use the liquid kind that you apply with a brush, not the spray kind. Apply several coats to the entire helmet or band after you apply your decals. DO NOT use the spray Mod Podge. Re-apply Mod Podge as needed, depending on the wear, to keep the helmet looking the best. If you are planning to change out the stickers, I'd probably not cover them. You can peel the stickers off without damaging the helmet and you can apply new ones. If you don't use Mod Podge, because of wear and tear of the stickers rubbing against everything, the stickers can peel off over time, especially thin or sharp points, but you can just replace with other ones from your set or apply a new set.
Are the stickers removable?
The stickers are removable, but not reusable. If you wish to change out your design, most helmet companies suggest you use a small amount of nail polish remover containing acetone in order to break down the glue on the sticker.
Will the stickers last the entire treatment period?
Because I use high quality vinyl, the stickers should last the entire treatment time if you apply a coating such as Mod Podge to keep them from peeling off, but varies depending on personal use.
Can wording or colors be changed on the onesie/t-shirt designs?
Of course! You can customize the design any way you'd like. See ordering page for more details.
Do you do custom orders?
I cannot take custom orders at this time, but any of my designs can be changed out to any color vinyl that I offer. I have many designs to choose from and I'm always adding more.
Can I choose I different color from the one on picture of the design?
Yes, you can change the colors to any of the other vinyl colors that I offer. Please see my vinyl color choices: http://www.davetdesigns.com/vinylcolors.html
