A clear window decal is an image or graphic that is printed directly onto a sheet of transparent 4 mil vinyl material. These decals are transparent anywhere that does not contain your design, allowing you to display your logo or message on your window, glass door, or storefront without entirely obstructing your view.
Clear vinyl window decals are intended for both indoor and outdoor use. The ideal surface they are meant to be used on is glass, but may also be used on electronic equipment, refrigerators, aluminum, stainless steel, plastics, or laminated surfaces. These decals are commonly used for business/storefront advertising, retail locations, displaying store hours, window decor, product promotion, window signage, and office branding.
A two-step printing process is used when creating your custom transparent window decal. This involves printing a layer of white ink followed by a layer of colored ink. This "spot white ink" is only printed where your design is printed to add contrast and vibrancy to your design while retaining the overall transparency of the decal.
Please note that your decal will only be transparent in areas that do not include your design. Knowing this, we recommend using files that contain a transparent background when uploading your design. Need design help? Learn about our free design services.

The following installation instructions will help you with a quick and easy installation of your custom clear window decal. Instructions will also be included with your order, and you are free to refer to this page, download a PDF of the instructions, or view our instructional video for assistance. If you are installing a large decal we recommend having at least one other person assist you.
Begin by thoroughly cleaning the window or glass surface you intend to use for your decal. After cleaning, use a window squeegee to remove excess water or allow appropriate time for the window to air dry.
Create a decal application solution by combining 3 drops of dish soap or detergent (not hand soap) per 1 gallon of water and place into a spray bottle.
Lay your transparent window decal on a flat, smooth surface and begin to remove the black liner. The backing is a frosted, semi-transparent material that can be difficult to remove due to its thin properties. If you are having difficulty, try applying a small piece of tape to the corner of the backing and use that to help you peel it away from the decal.
As you are removing the backing, generously apply the application solution to the back of the decal. Next, spray a generous amount of application solution to the desired surface, making sure both the adhesive side of the decal and the glass surface are now sufficiently wet. Do not submerge the decal into water in an attempt to soak the adhesive side.
You can now apply your clear window decal to the desired window or glass surface. The application solution will allow the decal to slip and move once it is on the window. Use this to your advantage by sliding the decal into its final position.
Once the decal is in its final position, place the removed backing over the face of your decal and use the application squeegee to remove air bubbles/application solution from under the decal. When doing so, start in the center of the decal and press firmly to the right or left edge. Continue this process until you have run the squeegee over the entire surface of the decal.
Use paper towels to clean the glass surface and to remove excess water from the edges of the decal. It may take several days for the adhesive to fully dry and bind to the glass surface.
