Windshield decal parking permits

A good windshield decal is an exercise in moderation. Some decals must be hardy enough to last for years or stand up to the weather, while still being removable without major inconvenience. Often, they must be clearly legible at a distance of ten feet in order for organizations to check up on the vehicles in their lot, while still including enough fine detail to make them hard to falsify.

When you create parking permit decals, make sure to order stickers that indicate disabled parking privileges as well.
For lots with more than ten or fifteen cars, authentication is the most onerous aspect of any parking plan, so keep the attendant in mind when you design your permits. To put the problem another way, think of how close your attendants have to get to the decal to verify the numbers on it. Now multiply the time it'll take them to get within visibility range of a sample decal by the number of cars they'll check in a year. You'll very quickly end up with a very large number of wasted hours if the decals are hard to read!
Be considerate to the people who will be using your decals. There are plenty of adhesive options to choose from, including parking decals that use static electricity to stay on, leaving no residue whatsoever. Easy removability should be a key element of your decals. Consider using a clear background, which will obscure the least amount of windshield as possible for optimal driving visibility.
When you’re planning decals,ensure that any numbers on their surface stand in sharp contrast (for maximum visibility) with whatever color is behind them (so no black-on-grey or yellow-on-white – combinations like black type against a yellow or white background are more suitable).The numbers themselves should be as bold as possible. For legibility, the bigger they are, the better. Any important symbology (like handicapped access or privileged parking) should be readily visible, too – and last of all, consider changing the color of your decals annually so you can immediately tell if someone's fallen behind on payments, or if their authorization has expired.

If you’re using the decal system, it’s worth noting that many parking managers use decals punitively. That is, if a car is parked in an unauthorized area or manner, attendants place a violation sticker rather than ticket on the windshield of a car. When the consequence for obstructing a lane or refusing to pay is prying a decal from a car’s window, people will usually think twice.
