Tips for Customizing Sports Helmets with Vinyl Decals

May 18, 2016

Without helmets, a variety of different sports can be downright dangerous. From football to hockey, you don’t want to be playing any sort of contact sport without the proper head protection.

If you’re like most people though, you need to customize your helmet with vinyl decals. While the process might seem relatively simple, if it’s your first time doing it, you might need just a little bit of guidance.

Vinyl Decals to Customize your sports decals

Pick Your Design

Choosing the design for your helmet seems relatively easy, but there’s more to the process than picking something that fits the team. You also need to consider how large the design is and what the surface area of the helmet is.

For example, helmets designed for children playing hockey have a lot less surface area than adult football helmets. Those can take much larger vinyl decals, and you won’t have to worry about cutting part of the logo off.

Choose your design wisely and make sure you measure both the decal and the helmet before you buy.

Clean Your Helmet, Apply Your Decal

Customizing sports helmets

Before you can apply any sort of vinyl decal to your helmet, you need to start with a clean surface. Take the time to remove any existing decal with heat – hair dryers work well – and scrape off any residue. A product like Goo Gone and a clean rag will help you remove any excess stickiness.

From there, give the helmet a good wipe down with a clean rag. Make sure the helmet is very dry before you begin to put a decal on.

Once you’re ready to put your decal on, you can use something as simple as contact paper. That’s why vinyl decals are the best for people avoiding expensive printing options.
