What Are Carpet Stickers?

Custom carpet stickers are vinyl graphics that adhere to low pile carpet and are commonly used for advertising, branding, or trade show and event purposes. At 9.4 mil (.009") they are incredibly thin yet perfect for temporary use. Due to their protective overlaminate they are certified slip resistant and can handle foot traffic for up to six months of regular use.

Carpet stickers are also commonly referred to as carpet decals or carpet graphics. Carpet stickers are easily applied and removed from low pile carpets or rugs without leaving behind any residual adhesive.

Compatible Surfaces

Carpet stickers are the perfect graphic solution for carpet applications. However, they are not compatible with all types of carpet. When purchasing a carpet sticker the intended installation surface must be taken into account. Carpet stickers must only be applied to carpet with a short nap and a tight weave. Additionally, carpet graphics will only adhere to carpets with minimal texture. This is most often true of commercial carpets rather than residential carpets. Some other common surfaces for carpet stickers are low pile rugs and vehicle carpets or floor mats. With all carpets and rugs the same principles apply: the installation surface must be short, tightly woven, and minimal in texture. Carpet stickers are not meant for non-porous or smooth surfaces. Please see our floor decals if you are looking for a decal not intended for carpet. Carpet decals will not work on surfaces such as hardwood, laminate, tile, unsealed concrete, or surfaces, including carpets, that are dirty, stained (oil, chemicals, etc), or wet.

Carpet stickers are meant to be a temporary and short term floor graphic. Assuming the graphic is installed properly on a compatible carpet surface it should last 3-6 months.

Factors for Carpet Stickers Lifespan:

  • Compatible Installation Surface
  • Correct Installation
  • Normal Amount of Foot Traffic
  • Low Exposure to UV light
  • Temperature Range (40-180 degrees)

Contact with water should be avoided. Water will permanently damage the carpet sticker adhesive.

When installing your custom carpet sticker be sure to confirm that your installation surface (i.e. carpet or rug) is compatible with the carpet sticker.

The carpet surface must be clean and free from dirt, dust, oils, etc. in order for the sticker to adhere properly. To install the sticker, begin by peeling the protective backing from the adhesive or non-printed side of the sticker. Gently place one end of the graphic to the floor and slowly squeegee* the graphic to the carpet. Once the graphic has been placed, gently press and squeegee the sticker to the carpet one final time.

*Squeegees can be added to your order for a small charge during the design process.


When you are done using your carpet sticker you should remove it from the carpet within six months of installation. Begin by pulling the graphic up from the carpet at one edge and slowly peel the graphic away from the carpet. removing the sticker within six months will ensure that your carpet will not be damaged due to the adhesive. Removing your graphic should not leave any adhesive residue on your carpet so long as you remove it within six months of installation. Carpet stickers are not reusable and once they have been installed they cannot be re-positioned or reused. Once they have been removed they should be disposed of.

How do I remove my carpet sticker? Will the sticker’s adhesive leave any residue on the carpet?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Typically your carpet sticker should be fairly easy to remove. Simply begin by slowly pulling and peeling the sticker up from the carpet at one end, gently working your way to the other end of the sticker until it is completely off the install surface. If the sticker is removed from the carpet within 6 months from the installation date you shouldn’t be left with any residue from the adhesive or damage to the carpet if removed slowly. After 6 months from the date of installation we cannot guarantee that the sticker will come up without leaving any residual adhesive or damage to the carpet. The carpet stickers, like others in the industry, are intended for short-term temporary use.

How do I clean my carpet sticker?
Asked a year ago by Signs
Assuming proper installation and use, carpet stickers are intended to last 3-6 months. During this time you may desire to clean the surface of the sticker. To do so you may wipe it down with a wet rag or cloth that is non-abrasive. Wet the cloth or rag with warm water and a mild soap if desired. Do not use anything that may contain harsh chemicals or powerful cleaning solutions. Avoid contact with strong vacuums or carpet cleaners as they may damage your carpet sticker. Contact with water under an installed carpet sticker should also be avoided. Our stickers have a water based adhesive and contact with water will permanently ruin the sticker and cause it to ruin your carpet, can cause people to slip, and in some cases cause the sticker to come off of the installation surface entirely.
Can I reuse or reposition my carpet sticker?
Asked a year ago by Signs
Carpet stickers are a one-time use product and are temporary in nature. Once applied your carpet sticker can not be repositioned. Further, once removed your carpet sticker is not reusable or repositionable. Please take this into consideration if you plan to clean your carpets during the lifespan of an installed sticker.
