Leather Decals for seat headrests

Has anyone ever tried these decals that are supposed to go on your headrests. They claim they are only for leather, and I think would be a nice touch to my interior, but I dont know of anyone who has ever actually bought a pair.
There was a guy on our Mach1 board that used to embroider "MACH1" on our headrests if we sent them to him. Those looked awesome. I kind of wanted to go along with the same idea, but I dont know of anyone who embroiders or anything, so this may be the next best thing. If they stick of course.
They have some listed on ebay check em out. 2010 2014 Ford Mustang Headrest Outlined Pony Decals Only Leather Seats 10 14 | eBay

My guess is this is just a vinyl sticker.

If so, I'm not sure how well they will adhere to the leather.

I can just see it now. A little edge peels up, your wife/gf/some chick is sitting in the seat. Her hair catches the peeled up edge, she gets out of the car and has a mustang decal tangled/stuck in her hair. You don't want to be dealing with a woman with a vinyl decal tangled in her hair.

LOL good point, my wife would not be to happy. Maybe I can find someone to stitch it in there, that would be pretty cool.

You can get custom headrest stitching pretty cheap at an upholstery shop, I was quoted $75-100 per headrest for a pony/ and custom lettering.

No problem, just find a good custom place and if you have to shop around and make sure to look at they're work, and be VERY specific on what you want ie. Fonts etc lol

Or worse, hairs are ripped out and left dangling from your sticker. That would be unsightly

OP - for the 3+ years I was on the Challenger forum tons of members had their headrests and console covers custom embroidered by Jina. Everyone raved above the work and I was always incredibly impressed with the pictures people posted of her work. You can google her using "Jina's Sew Simple Embroidery". You'll find lots of pictures of her work. Hope this helps.
