These are not decals, they are stickers, nice stickers, but still stickers.
Just didn't want anyone to be misled.

What is the difference between a decal and a sticker?
One is a peel and stick, the other is a lick and stick.:badgrin:

A decal has three layers to it. A back layer, a middle layer and a front layer.
The back layer is just to keep the decal from deforming until it is applied.
The middle layer is the actual decal.
The front layer is what the decal is adhered to.
To apply a decal you first put a piece of tape along the top of the whole thing and place it where you want it to go.
Next you flip the whole thing up and remove the backing piece.
Flip it back down and press the decal in place.
Slowly remove the front piece leaving the decal on the surface you wanted it on.

A sticker has two layers. A back piece and a front piece. The front piece is the actual design.
You peel the front piece, the design, and stick it on the surface you want it on.
Decals are more durable, they are vinyl. Stickers are generally paper or some kind of cheaper material.

Hope I explained that semi-clearly

I quote from the link provided, These stickers are the exact same ultra-premium, laminated 3M Controltac® vinyl as our wraps. This means they stick anywhere yet can be removed without a trace when you desire.
They don't even look like decals in the link.
If you read down further they say they are peel off, that is the definition of a sticker.
