Below are some of the most common questions we are asked.
If your question is not addressed here, please contact us
- What are the tags made of?
Tags are made of the same materials the car manufacturers use... injection molded
plastic, which is chrome foil plated and triple coated with lacquer to stand up to
the elements and car washings.
- How long will they last?
With normal care, each tag may last longer than the vehicle it's mounted to.
- How do they attach?
With peel and stick neoprene automotive-type adhesive tape, or if you wish we will affix a magnetic strip at no
extra charge. However, we cannot guarantee how well the magnetic strip will adhere in your application. From
personal experience it won't survive an automatic car wash.
- Will it harm paint and how do I remove?
If your car's paint is in good condition to begin with, the adhesive will not cause damage.
Tag may be removed with the aid of a hair drier to soften adhesive. Soften a section at a time and gently pry
up as each section becomes soft. If carefully removed your advertising tag may be used again by applying a new adhesive
- What is the size of a tag?
Lower case letters such as a,c,e,n,i are 1" high
Lower case letters such as l,b,t,d,f are 1.25" high
All upper case letters and numbers are 1.25" high
Letter widths vary.
The maximum length of an advertising tag is 18".
- What letters and characters do you have?
Advertising tags have a full range of upper and lower case letters, and numbers.
We also have a number of special characters. e.g... ://.-@~%_&!#?( ),'/$£
We also have a number of non-english language characters. e.g... ß ü ä Ü Ä ö ø
- How long can the tags be?
Tags are made to the customer's text specifications up to a maximum or 22 letters/numbers.
(Punctuation marks such as : // / , ' etc. are not counted.) We only count actual letters or numbers.
If you need all upper case letters, please limit the number of letters to 19, not including punctuation.
- Are there discounts for volume?
Yes. Prices vary depending on quantity ordered and text length. Discount prices start at
50 units. Please contact us for a quote.
Delivery is free world wide with a minimum order of two of any text. For single orders please add $8.50.
Orders of 12 tags or more will be couriered. Please allow up to 3-4 weeks for normal worldwide delivery,
or 2 weeks for worldwide couriered orders.
- Why a minimum order of 2 tags to get prepaid shipping?
It is not economical to package and ship a single tag with delivery included. However, the two tag
minimum can be of any text combination.
e.g... 1 URL tag and 1 e-mail tag etc..
- Are these tags a good value for my advertising money?
Car tags are one of the world's great advertising bargains. Dollar for dollar there is no more effective,
or cost effective form of advertising.
Car tags retail at US $39.95 ea. We assume the average person holds his car in service for three years.
We calculated that the amortized cost of having a URL tag on a car over three years is about 3.6 pence per day.
If the vehicle is driven in daily rush hour traffic the tag may be seen hundreds, if not thousands of times
every day at a fraction of a penny per impression. The cost declines dramatically if the owner holds his car
in service for longer than 3 years or if the tag is reused on your next car. With care, URL tags will easily
last for 7 to 8 years in outdoor use. Properly cared for indoors they'll practically last forever.
- What are the advantages of the Car Advertising Tags?
a) Our tags are a low cost, "buy it once, and use it for years" product, which delivers dividends every day.
b) A tag affixed to the family car becomes a personal endorsement passively promoting your message.
c) Their mobile nature means they are seen by a different audience every day. They sell whether you are on the road or parked, at work or play.
d) All orders are usually delivered within 2-3 weeks worldwide, with no delivery charge.
e) They install in seconds with no special skills required.
f) They require no special maintenance (just normal car washings).
g) Tags are 100% guaranteed against manufacturing defect.
