So for the past week I've been trying to figure out how to best preserve my window sticker. I've been carefully placing it in various places around the condo trying to avoid wrinkling it etc.

Obviously it's too big to fit in a binder without folding it in some way. I've been toying with the idea of having it laminated.

What have others done?

I would file it away for safe keeping......in the meantime go to Kinko's and have them make a color copy (like 95% reduced) so it will fit on a 8 1/2 X 11 sheet and use that for your displays and car shows, etc. Will only cost 99 cents.

They tried laminating one for me and it wrinkled. ?????? all the could say was sorry. All I could say was @#$% $#$%#@. Like I could get another one.

Took mine to Office Max. For about $2 they laminated in in the HEAVY stuff (like a Drivers Licenses used to use before they became solid plastic) and now it will outlive me. I stick it on the window when I show the car, take off and keep safe when I'm not.

I made a color copy (pictured below) of the original and laminated the copy at Kinko's. I also laminated the original at Kinko's which is in the safe.

Very nice! I feel just awful though as mine is folded up and in the glove box. Wish I had some forsight like you guys. Well I just ran out and unfolded it and stacked some heavy books on it. I'll just have to hope for the best dog gone it...

BTW, mine says 15 city mpg and 23 highway mpg on the sticker. Looks like the '01 is much better.

Place it between two pieces of plexiglass. I did mine by leaving about an inch and a half at the top and bottom of the sticker and about 3 inches on either side. Then I went and bought some bling bolts (one in each corner) to hold it together. I will try and put a picture up tomorrow so you can visualize it!

I laminated mine at kinkos. Came out fine. I also enlarged and laminated the 2008 mustang bullitt features and wallpaper pages from the ford site. Lots of younger people don't know what a bullitt is about. They fit nicely under the lip of the of the radiator cover when the hood is open. #3873 blk

Use a glass picture frame

Measure it, go to your local store that sells household goods and pay $3-$15 dollars for a glass picture frame.

I put mine in relatively inexpensive picture frames, they hang out of the reach of the sun, that preserves them as original without the permanent destructive altering done by laminating. Can you imagine the Antiques Roadshow comments on the loss of value to an otherwise historically significant document that had been laminated?

I use the picture frames primarily for preservation rather than display, although they are displayed in a back hall in my home office. I actually carried the empty picture frame to the dealership and put the window sticker in it before we finished the paperwork on the Bullitt sales transaction.

Not necessarily so, The standards by which they rate the mileage have changed. If you follow the mileage posts, it seems the 2008's are getting better mileage than the 2001's...

the dealer folded mine and put it in with the owners manual before i got there. said ' some people like to keep them' uh , yeah... UNFOLDED! haha..

anyhow, when i was doing promotional stuff for bands back in the day i would have their posters framed for appearances, seminars at music stores etc... usually they came from the record company in tubes, but sometimes they would fold them in legal size envelopes... the framing place i would get them done at would use a press to make them flat again and you would never know they were ever folded. not sure how that would work out given that it's a 'sticker' and they use heat to press it, but might be worth checking out!
