Common Questions


No! While you could make any badge a magnet with a little DIY, our badges are adhesive, and stick more securely and with more durability than ordinary stickers. We use 3M automotive-grade adhesive, which is safe on painted surfaces AND safe to remove, but will stay put for as long as you want it to. 


The automotive industry standard is chrome plated ABS plastic with 3M automotive grade adhesive. Our goal is to make products that are indistinguishable from a factory installed badge, so in the spirit of seamlessly matching what’s already there, we make them to the exact same specifications of what’s already there. 


No! We made our badges “cars first” – which means that we wanted them to be a high enough quality to withstand the elements and be durable enough to survive the lifetime of your vehicle. However, we love coming up with new places to slap these badges, from record players, to coolers, to instruments, to key fobs – these badges are the perfect way to add some flair to any smooth, flat surface… Just make sure you clean that surface first!

Is it legal to remove the manufacturer badges from my car?

Yes! Those badges are simply free advertising for the car company that you bought your car from. So why not rebrand your car with something you are ACTUALLY passionate about?!

Will this badge get stolen off of my car?

We invite anyone to try, but we can’t vouch for the condition of your fingernails afterwards! These badges take some elbow grease to get off, and we do not see how a person looking for a quick grab and go would be able to pilfer a badge that was properly applied.

Can I remove my badge?

Absolutely! These badges are meant to last on your surface for as long as you want them there, but they are also able to be removed without damaging the paint on your car or the finish on the surface that they have been applied to. When it is time to remove a badge, refer to this how-to video: How to Remove a Badge

Can I remove the badge and reapply it to another surface?

We guarantee that the badge will securely adhere on the first application, but offer no promises for reapplications. This is because a lot of factors go into the state of the adhesive after removal, like time since application, exposure to the elements, and method of removal. Feel free to give it a try though!
