Default Car decals

Can someone tell me the best vinyl to use when making decals for car windows please? I have been making ones for walls inside the house. But a friend approached me to make some with her company logo and info for her cars. TIA!!

Wowsers...
But to help answer the original question, you need to use Oracal 651 or Oracal 731 or 751 I can't remember. 651 has outdoor life of 3-4 years, but 7 hundred has 6-7 years. DO NOT use cricut vinyl or 631 for outdoors b/c it won't last long at all. HTH!

That's what I use my Cricut and the make-The-Cut program for. It makes it easy to design what ever I want and then it cuts on the cricut. Hardest part is getting the un needed pieces off without tearing the rest of it.

That's exactly why I started making my own. Far too expensive to but ==y from that company. They have cute stuff. But it just isn't worth it. granted i can't make huge ones, but for what I need my cricut is perfect.
