How to tell whether a sticker is applied from inside?

I like those that can be applied from inside of the car. I used those that applied to the outside and they did not last. While browsing stickers on eBay, I found it is very hard to tell whether it is from inside or outside. Anyone has experience on this? Please share if you know a good place to buy high quality good stickers esp. those made for BRZ. Thanks!

Well if you "ticker" is on the outside you have issues!







Edit: Well now the title says "sticker" and my joke makes no sense at all.

You want a vinyl decal, not a sticker. They apply to the outside of the car using a 2-step process (like a temporary tattoo).


They are thicker and more durable and will last much longer.


Don't forget, each decal is worth +5 hp.

Laminated vinyl stickers are really good too. They last over a year in direct UV on my car. I make all my own stickers though...

That's cool. I have never owned a car for 19 years. (14 yeas is the longest so far) Additionally, since I make my own stickers, when I get bored of them, I remove them, and add new ones. So, by saying they last over a year, I mean: I have left one on my car for a year and it was still good.

Are you referring to something like a window cling? Ones similar to the ones oil change places stick in your windshield? I realize that particular example faces the interior, but I've often seen them facing outward, typically with collegiate affiliations.
