I would like a Seattle Space Needle sticker on the rear window of my car.  I think that I need to be able to apply it to the exterior glass or it won't show through the tinting on the inside, which means it needs to hold up to the elements.  A simple, clean outline like this, but in white to contrast with my tinted rear window. I thought it would be a touristy thing that would be readily available and that I'd be able to purchase such a sticker quite simply, but I have yet to find anything.  I've done some Googling but have only discovered enormous rates for custom die-cut stickers that are way more than I want to spend.  So, I turn to you Craftsters, because stickers are something I know almost nothing about, particularly the DIY variety.  If anybody has any ideas for printing out a sticker on some good quality 3M vinyl or something like that, then I am handy enough with scissors to trim neatly and don't need die cutting.  I just don't know how difficult it is to print a sticker.  Thank you for your time!

Hmmm, I can't think of a way to do this type of thing at home.

I know you can create custom bumper stickers at zazzle.com and I'm guessing they wouldn't be too pricey...

You could also try asking at an office supply type of place. I know many of them to fancy printing and perhaps they would have some suggestions.

Good luck!

Static Cling Paper from office depot, I'm sure staples or another big box business supply store has similar available for you.
