I had a military base ID sticker in the way of new RAM1500 wipers, and it lasted through an hour of rain. Wipers 'erased' the info off the sticker.

over time and use of wipers, the stickers will be scuffed up, begin to peel back/off, and probably cut/mess up/wear out the wiper blade as well as the wiper is designed to remove water from a "smooth surface" w/o the leading edges of the stickers, no biggie, but don't expect either to last a long time.

Life is not a box of chocolates. It's more like a jar of jalapenos, what you do today may burn you tomorrow.
