A quick but important post today. Adding a decal to your car or truck is a great way to advertise your Silhouette or Cricut based business. In fact, it is easy to cut the vinyl yourself and have a custom decal for your car in only a few minutes! But, did you know that adding your business details to your vehicle may mean that you have to upgrade your car insurance to a commercial policy – even if you are not doing any business related activities in the vehicle? Today’s public service announcement: Before you place your business details on your vehicle, call your insurance company, your insurance agent, or consult your policy paperwork to make sure that it is allowed. In the event that you need to file a claim with your insurance company, they may decline it if you have business advertising on your vehicle and only hold a personal insurance policy.
If you find out that it is okay to add your business details to your vehicle, you can cut your own from vinyl using your machine (I like to use 651 Oracal outdoor rated vinyl), you can order car magnets or bumper stickers from Vistaprint.com (click here for a $10 off coupon), or consider full window decals from Signazon.com (I’ve used them twice to add rear window decals to the back of my vans – the decals are easy to apply, you’ll just need a buddy).
