Today I’m going to talk about trade dressing. I’ve seen too many Uber and Lyft cars with messed up and partially attached trade dress stickers. They say they are removable but once you remove them they look like the ones I’ve mentioned above .
What if I don’t want my trade dress on all the time?
A lot of Uber and Lyft drivers such as me are part time drivers and may not want to display their trade dress when they aren’t driving for either of the two.
In some cases displaying two trade dresses is Illegal
Certain cities and airports will not allow you to display dual trade dresses. At Los Angeles airport (LAX) for instance, it is a violation to have two trade dresses on your window. You can be fined up to $1000 for this violation.
Because of these three big trade dress issues I decided to come up with a solution to make the stickers removable and keep them looking brand new.
What is the best way to attach your Uber and Lyft trade dress?
After brainstorming for a few days I finally came up with the perfect solution.
Laminating….. This will keep the trade dress looking brand new and allow both sides to be shown.
Now I need to worry about mounting.
I really wanted a suction cup with a clip because that would be the best completely removable solution. After going to every local store such as Michaels, walmart and target I could not find what I was looking for. I found them easily on amazon but I needed a solution today. I decided to get some plastic velcro. You know, the kind that just snaps together.
Stuck a little to the windshield and a little on each trade dress sticker and my problem was solved. Not as clean of a look as I wanted but it easily gets the job done.
