About Our Clear Window Decals

Description

Clear Window Decal Material
Clear Window Decal Material

Let in the light with custom clear window decals that add beautiful graphics to any window without blocking the view. Printed on clear, semi-permanent vinyl, our clear window decals are great for retail or office applications. Display store hours or advertise promotions without obstructing light or visibility.

Installation & Care

Installation: First, clean the window surface and allow it to dry. If the decals are small, remove the backing and lightly press them onto the window. If the decals are larger, use soapy water and coat the back sides of the decals and the window. Position the decals and then use a rubber-tipped squeegee to remove excess water and bubbles.

Care: Although we recommend using soapy water to help install your decals, don't allow them to become exposed to water or excessive moisture for an extended period of time before installing. Do not power wash your decals after they are installed. Lightly clean them with a damp cloth. Remove by peeling the decal away from the window, using a window cleaner and razor blade to remove leftover residue.

Product Specs

  • What material is your clear decal made out of?
  • Our custom window decals are made out of 2.0 mil super clear polyester film designed for both interior and exterior applications. The film comes with a clear backer that can be peeled away to reveal the adhesive. This material is optically clear once installed. It is a durable option that is easily installed and removed.
  • How do I know where my decal will be clear?
  • Clear is indicated by the gray and white checkered area on our site. If you want any part of your sign to be clear, that background must be visible on your proof. To get that checkered area, simply go to the color panel and select “Clear” while you have your whole sign (or the object you want clear) selected. If you have uploaded a JPG file to the site with a white background, we will print the white of that background. If you want that to be clear instead, please upload a PNG with transparency. If you need help, please fill out our free design request form.
  • Do you offer other types of decals?
  • Yes, in addition to the clear window decals we also offer opaque window decals and perforated window decals. Additionally, we offer a static cling that uses static electricity instead of an adhesive property to adhere to your window. A more detailed explanation of the differences and advantages/disadvantages of these decals can be found here: Window Signage Options.
  • Are vinyl window decals the same thing as window stickers or window graphics?
  • Window decals and stickers are most commonly interchangeable terms describing a semi-permanent vinyl with an adhesive backing. Semi-permanent means you can peel them away easily right after application but re-applying them again may be difficult if not impossible after they’ve been in place for any duration of time. Further, once they’ve been set in a certain location you are unable to reposition them.

    Window graphics is similar to window stickers in that it is understood within the signage industry but often needs clarification. So if you prefer the term window graphics to window decals, just make sure you know whether you are looking for an adhesive or cling-based window graphic.

  • How thick are your window decals?
  • Our window decals are razor thin. Technically speaking they are 2 mil or .002”. The easiest way to visualize this thickness is to say that it is just thinner than a normal piece of paper. This extremely thin solution provides an aesthetically pleasing window sign that is simultaneously clear, durable and semi-permanent.
  • What is the lifespan of your clear window decals?
  • With proper placement and care our clear window decals will last for three or more years in an interior application. For an exterior application, depending on the amount of exposure to the elements and other considerations the lifespan is one or more years.
  • Will the exposure to sun or the elements ruin my decal?
  • Your decal is designed to be used either inside or out and is weather resistant. However, exposure to extreme elements over a long period of time can eventually degrade your decal. While a decal placed on the interior of a window will last longer than one placed outside, both placements of the decal are within the intended usages of the sign.
  • Can the decals be cut to shape? Individual letters?
  • Yes, your window decal can be cut to any shape you want. We typically don’t recommend cutting to any shape though because the clear part of the decal is extremely clear making it unnecessary in most cases to cut to shape. However, by selecting the options contour cut (cut exactly to shape) or halo cut (small border around edge of the cut) you can customize window decals to any shape or size.

    If you are looking for individually cut vinyl letters for your storefront or home windows, you are most likely looking for cut vinyl lettering which is a different product entirely. We do offer this product, but not currently on the site. Please contact us for a custom quote

  • How small or big can my window decal be?
  • Due to the size of printers we use the smallest window decal we are able to do is 6”x6”. On the maximum end of the scale you can not create a window decal that has both dimensions over 52”. Assuming that one of your dimensions is under 52” then regardless of the other dimension we can print your custom-made decal. If you need something larger than 52”, you may need to divide your graphic into two or more pieces and then install them side-by-side.
  • What if my decal has more than 2 colors? Will it cost more?
  • We print everything in full color. Thus, no matter what your design might be there will be no additional cost. Your decal cost will depend on the size of the sign and how many you purchase. Bulk discounts are for any quantity of two or greater that consists of the same design. Other potential costs are shipping and taxes where applicable.

Usage

  • Will the decal damage or ruin my window?
  • No, both installation and removal of your decal should not hurt nor damage your window. The only way the window might be damaged is scratching the window while using a metal squeegee or razor blade during installation or removal.
  • What are clear window decals typically used for?
  • Clear window decals have a variety of uses. The most common one is for businesses big and small with store fronts. Business window decals are a perfect solution for advertising sales, seasonal promotions during Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc., branding purposes and even store hours. Decals noting warnings and regulations, compliance signs such as displaying building codes, surveillance notices, QR codes and many more are other great examples of how window decals can be used in a business setting. These window signs are also great for office settings which feature plenty of glass as part of internal offices, meeting or conference rooms, reception areas and more. They can also be used in residential settings for anything from “no soliciting” to “beware of dog” type signs.
  • Will the decal impact the transparency of my window/storefront?
  • The clear decal will be completely transparent wherever it is not printed. Thus, if the surface area of your decal is completely covered then you won’t see any clear portions of the decal. Though even a fully printed decal will still allow some light through. Vision will be obscured but not as opaque as an actual opaque decal. To achieve one way visibility select our perforated window decals.
  • Can I place my decal on the inside of my storefront/window and have it be visible to those outside?
  • Yes, for inside placement and outside visibility you need to select “inside glass” as an option during the checkout process. We’ll reverse print your sign so that you can adhere it to the inside of the window but have customers or visitors easily see your sign as they approach your business or home. This is also possible with our clear static clings.
  • Can the decal be used only on a glass surface?
  • Without a doubt the decals are best when used on a glass surface as this is what they are designed for. Notwithstanding, generally speaking they will work on similar smooth surfaces such as glass substitutes and some plastics. Surfaces that will not work include concrete of any type, textured surfaces and drywall amongst others.

Installation & Care

  • Does my decal have a backing? How do I remove it?
  • Yes. Your clear decal has a clear backing on it. It is fairly difficult to see, but it’s there.
  • How do I install my clear window decal?
  • Installation of your clear decal consists of two main steps. The first is to clean the window and allow the surface to dry before installing the decal.

    The second step is the actual installation of the decal. To install your decal add a drop or two of mild detergent to a spray bottle full of water. After doing so, spray the adhesive side of the decal as well as the window itself generously with the water mixture. By getting the decal and window wet it will provide you with some wiggle room while installing the decal to the window. Do not at any time submerge the decal in water as this can ruin the adhesive properties. Once the decal is placed on the window use a flat edge or squeegee and remove any excess water. Be careful not to use an edge that will puncture or tear your decal. For this reason we recommend a rubber tipped squeegee. If certain small spots or areas are proving difficult to smooth out then small holes can be punctured with a pin or razor blade and the air removed by smoothing it out with a finger.

    Once the water is removed and the backing dries your decal will be semi-permanently applied to the window. We do not recommend trying to reposition the decal once it is fully adhered to the window. The decals aren’t designed to be repositioned after the initial installation. If this is what you need, we recommend using static clings.

  • Does installation require more than one person?
  • Generally speaking installation of the window decal can be done with one person for smaller decals. For larger decals we recommend that at least two people install the decal. This will prevent the decal from sticking to itself during the process and makes for a much easier squeegee process and overall application.
  • How do I store my decal?
  • Our clear window decals are a semi-permanent one time use. Thus, once applied to your windows you are unable to remove them and use them for future use regardless of how you store them. If you need to store them for a period of time before actually installing them make sure to keep the backing on the decal and store them in a cool and dry environment.
  • How do I clean my decal?
  • Once installed your decal can be cleaned of dirt or dust buildup by wiping it with a wet rag or cloth. Regular and light cleaning will help keep the decal looking bright and clear.
  • How do I remove my decal? Will it leave behind a huge mess and lots of residue?
  • Most decals can be removed by simply peeling it away from the window. If the decal is proving difficult to remove then we recommend using a razor blade or sharp edged instrument to help peel it off the window and remove any residual adhesive. In most cases, removal is extremely easy and hassle free. Factors that may affect the ease of removal include the conditions in which the decal has been used in and how long it has been on the window. For residual adhesives a simple window cleaner and sharp edge instrument should be sufficient.
  • Can I wash my window with the decal installed?
  • Yes, washing your windows should not adversely impact your sign. The only exception to this is using any kind of power washer or spray gun directly on the decal. This can damage the decal’s adhesive and cause it to fall off the window.
