Since I used to buy them, I can say with some authority that (1) they're 
vinyl tape, as others have surmised, and yes it's the same stuff that 
adhesive-free window "stickers" are made from, and (2) they came in lots 
of colours - I have almost every one except purple, and, oddly enough, 
blue.  So the item on Amazon might be a very good option.
