    decos never fail on stickers....they dont fade....sharpies are horrible...when you slap it...unless its a ridiculously high spot, dont slap it..roll it on pressing firmly...if you have a pencil/pen/marker on you, after you "slpa" it you can press on the pen/marker/pencil applying alot of presure and almost "squeejee" it...this will press the sticky shit on harder, and it will get all the air bubbles out

    never apply to textured surfaces, because they wont stay up, never slap it on a dirty surface

    if i have time, after i slap it, ill go over it a couple times with that clear duct tape stuff thats super packing tape...that way when they peel it, it will be harder considering this is plastic aposed to paper

    handmades always look better unless your horrible at making hand mades

    when in doubt make a 2 tone background with some good ol' spray paint

    clear acrylic coatings will do verry little but somewhat protection to sun fading

    when you slap your sticker, watch your elements, keeping in mind that if you stick it somewhere in the suns path, it will very quickly fade depending on the products you use on it, also keep in mind that if it will be exposed to water...about 5 months after you stick it, it will begin to automaticaly peel and shrivle...i always like to slap my stickers on the opposite side of the sun and out of the way of rain, this way they are guaranteed to stay up longer
