clear car decals.
With a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee
Use clear car decals to add personalized graphics to your vehicle's windows without blocking the view. Because they are made from transparent adhesive film and are see-through from both sides, these vinyl decals are a great way to achieve full window coverage safely and easily. Advertise your business or add custom decals to your personal vehicle with ease.
Installation: For full window coverage, order your decals 1 inch wider and taller than the window to allow for trimming. Before installing, premark the desired position with a removable marker. Remove the decal backing and coat the adhesive sides and the window with soapy water. Realign the decals to your marks and press them onto the window. Use a rubber-tipped squeegee, starting from the middle and working your way out, to remove bubbles and excess water. Allow your decals to dry before driving.
Care: Like all vehicle window decals, wash your clear decals regularly to maintain appearance and longevity. These decals are safe for most car washes. However, do not apply high pressure wash for long periods of time to avoid corner peeling. To remove the decal, simply peel back a corner using a razor blade and then pull the remaining decal away from the window. You can also use the razor blade to remove any remaining adhesive residue.

Clear is indicated by the gray and white checkered area on our site. If you want any part of your acrylic 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 or a vector file with transparency.
Your car decal is made from a clear vinyl material. Thus, anywhere where your graphic isn’t showing and the checkered background is visible will be clear. So the portion of your decal that will be see through will largely depend on what you are printing. For those seeking to print over the entire surface area and yet retain visibility we recommend our perforated window decals. These decals offer one way visibility regardless of how much of the surface area is printed. Please keep this in mind when using clear car decals that have the contain a design that covers the entire surface area.
Generally speaking the phrase car decals can be exchanged with car stickers or car graphics. All of these are usually semi-permanent graphics that can be placed on a wide variety of vehicles including trucks, boats, cars, tractors and more. Regardless of what you refer to them as, you should keep at least two things in mind:
First, car decals are a semi-permanent car signage solution. This means that once applied you will not be able to remove them and reposition them. Applying and removing them should not cause damage to your vehicle but you will not be able to remove them and then apply them in a different spot or on another vehicle. The adhesive will be ruined and the decal itself will not look good if you try to use it a second time. For a temporary vehicle signage solution that can be applied and removed as many times as you might need, visit our car magnets page.
Secondly, all of our decals (clear, opaque and perforated) are a different product from what is known as vinyl lettering. This means that the decals will come in one continuous piece with your decal printed on it. Even a design featuring a word will have a backing to it. These can be cut to shape as explained below, but we do not recommend attempting to cut out individual letters. If you are looking for car decals that feature individual letters or designs please contact us about our vinyl lettering product offering.
As explained above, if you are looking for individual letters or designs then please contact us about our vinyl lettering product offering.
Otherwise, we offer both halo and contour cut options. These cut options for your car decal are slightly different. Contour cut means that your design will be cut to the exact shape of your design. Halo cut will be cut to the exact shape of your design but leave a small border around the entire perimeter of your decal. Either of these options can be selected while designing your decal on our design tool.
Yes, just like our normal window decals you are able to place your clear car decal on the inside of your window and have it be visible to someone outside your car if you select the “inside glass” option.
For clear car decals this is absolutely an option. If you’d like to position your car decal on the inside of your window to be seen by passersby, then simply select the “Inside Glass” option during the designing and ordering process. The decal will then have the adhesive on the opposite side and you can place it on the inside of your window. However, please be aware that most cars have tinted windows which may severely obstruct the visibility of your sign. The best test is to print out your graphic on a piece of paper and tape it to the inside of your car. If you can see it clearly, then the “inside glass” option should work for you.
Installation & Care
Before you do any installation it is best to clean the surface where the decal will be applied and let it air dry. The dirt and grime that is removed will ensure that the adhesive sticks better when applied.
Before installing your decal you may want to mark the location you want to place it on the window or car with in a non-permanent way.
After removing the backing protecting the adhesive side of the decal use a spray bottle consisting of water and a drop or two of mild detergent or soap to wet the adhesive side of the decal itself as well as the surface where it will be applied. The water in these two locations will give you the ability to reposition the decal before it is fully adhered to the surface. For example, you should gently peel the decal away from the surface to remove extremely large air pockets or bubbles as it is applied.
Once the decal is placed correctly use a squeegee or other flat surface to carefully remove any small or minor air bubbles or pockets and excess water that may remain. The only caution in using a sharp edge is to be careful not to scratch or damage the car or surface itself.
Once the water has dried completely the decal’s adhesive will set in and the installation is done.
Smaller decals are easily installed by one person. We recommend reading the instructions fully before removing the backing so that the surface is clean and the spray bottle is prepared. Otherwise, small decals are not difficult to install by yourself.
Larger decals (anything over 18” or 24” in any given dimension) are much easier to install with 2 or more people. This makes it much easier to prevent the decal from sticking to itself, placing the decal and removing any air bubble or pockets as it is initially applied.
