Default Vynl sticker (now installed)

I'm a part of an international honor society/fraternity and received a vynl sticker to put on my car around a year ago. I never put it on though. At first I thought it was a static-cling sticker that could go on the inside of the car, but after looking at it closely, it appears that the letters are actually all individual and stick to the outside of the window. If this were put on, how hard are they to remove should I ever want to? Do these types of 'stickers' fade over time or start to fade/peal? Should I even put it on?

This is what it looks like. (I scanned it, but remember that it'* still in the protective wax paper so imagine the letters by themselves and bright white. )

It'd have to go on the bottom of my back window since my brake light is at the top. If I put it on, should I center it, or offset it?

I never ahd problems with them fading. They are simple to take back off. I used a razor blade and whala! Gone....

Oh...and I'd center it

I figured I won't be in school forever so why not show some school spirit. I went ahead and put it on. it'* only in the low 30'* here, but it still stuck really well. I just wiped the window down with water in that area, dried it, then applied the sticker.

When you're ready to take it off, make sure it'* warm... those decals are much easier to remove then. If it'* cold, it will just come off in pcs. A razor blade, and some windex will help out alot, just don't slice your fingers.... been there, done that.
