A Decal is any kind of tag attached with adhesive to something
so as to identify the object or its contents. Decals come
in many forms and can be differentiated by the type of
base material, called stock, that they are printed on,
and by the adhesive type that they use. The most common
type is made with a paper stock and a colloquial term for
it is a sticker. Decals have many uses, from product identification
to name tags.
- Typically not designed
to be removed without tearing the stock or using solvents.
The adhesion strength and speed can also be varied. For
example, full adhesion can be nearly instant, or
the decal or sticker can be
almost removable for a short period with full adhesion
developing in minutes or hours. This is considered
the most popular
and cheapest option by many self adhesive paper manufacturers.
is fairly strong and will not fall off in normal circumstances,
but the decal or sticker can be removed relatively
easily without tearing the base stock or leaving
behind on the old surface. The adhesive is usually
strong enough to be applied again elsewhere.

and decals are very widely used when an object requires
identification with a word or idea.
Brand stickers may be attached to products to identify
those products as coming from a certain company. They may
also be used to describe characteristics of the products
that would not be obvious from simple examination. They
are frequently distributed as part of promotional, advertising,
and political campaigns; for example, in many voting districts
in the U.S., decals indicating an individual has voted
are given to each voter as they leave the polling place,
largely as a reminder to others to vote. Other methods
of underground forms of voting for your favorite graffiti
artists' current productions are by an open form of appreciation
such as clapping while passing such a sticker (a smile
and a kind reminder to a fellow appreciator throughout
the day is commonplace as well).
and decals placed on automobiles, called bumper stickers,
are often used
by individuals as a way of demonstrating
support for political or ideological causes. Identification
of vehicle registration and last service details are two
examples of stickers on the inside of most car windscreens.
The term "window sticker" is generally used for
vinyl labels which are stuck to the inside of a vehicle's
window, as opposed to water-resistant stickers that are
stuck to the outside of a vehicle.

is not one of the easy-to-remove variety, then a penetrating
adhesive remover or the use of a heat-gun can be used.
