Will the print come off after washing?
No, our specially formulated foils are designed to withstand all types of weather conditions. They have not however been tested in very extreme weather conditions. I have a sticker on my car that has been there for over 4 years and it looks just as good as the day it was printed. Please note that vinyl colour can fade a little with uv light from the sun after a few years. In all honesty, I do not think most people will expect a sticker which they purchased for a couple of pounds to last forever!
