Default Windshield banner keeps coming off

Hey so my windshield banner stickers keep coming off whenever it's cold and use my wipers and fluid also when I'm at the car wash (even the self wash).
So my question is: is there any type of coating or anything/product to protect them from coming off?
Thanks!

... how big are you damn banners? are your wipers going across them or something? did you clean your windshield with something that repels water before you put it on?

Back when I was younger and dumb I had something on my windshield. Never came off. Had to take a razor blade to it to get it off. It's one of two things, either you didn't do a good prep and application job, or the quality of the vinyl is just poor.

IMO windshield banners make your car look a little tacky and have only see kids pull it off in the stanced, slammed and scraping car world.

If you can't take a little criticism, perhaps you should step away from the keyboard.
Remember, not everyone on the internet shares your same point of view on what you think is 'cool'.
Instead of whining online and asking to be spoon-fed the answers, be a bit more proactive and perhaps contact whoever you got the banner vinyl from and ask them for suggestions.

Besides, dsn112 gave you solid advice on what is likely your issue:

Quoted for truth, make sure the surface is spotless and clean and if it's still coming off you need to find some new vinyl, over time it can lose it's durability.

The car is naturally rejecting it.
Listen to the car.

Thanks mike (and the person you quoted). I cleaned it really well and made sure it was spotless before applying. It was probly just cheap vinyl. I'll get some better quality ones next time. And sorry to all the people who got their feelings hurt because of my question. Lol
