What Are Clear Window Decals

What Are Clear Window Decals?

A clear window decal is an image or graphic that is printed directly onto a sheet of transparent 3 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 they 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.

Clear Window Decals vs Vinyl Lettering

Vinyl Lettering

Vinyl Lettering

Clear window decals can have a very similar appearance to vinyl lettering when applied. However, they are entirely different products. With vinyl lettering, your design is cut to shape from a solid-colored sheet of vinyl instead of being printed. With clear window decals, your design is printed onto a sheet of transparent vinyl, allowing you to use a wide variety of colors, gradients, etc.

Advanced White-Ink Printing Method

Advanced White-Ink Printing Method

We use a two-step printing process to create 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. We recommend using files that have a transparent background such as PNG when uploading your design. Need design help? Learn about our free design services.

What's the Difference Between Indoor and Outdoor Decal?

Our indoor and outdoor decals are made to last a long time but we recommend using them in areas they're made for so you can maximize their lifespan.

Indoor clear window decals are great for indoor signs like offices, stores, and even homes. They're made with high-quality adhesive that's suitable and strong enough for indoor use.

Outdoor clear window decals, on the other hand, are created with a more resilient adhesive to make it weather-proof and withstand the elements. UV inhibitors are also built into each decal so it doesn't fade even with constant exposure to sunlight. This decal type is perfect for exterior glass surfaces such as windows of cars, stores, and buildings

Knowing where you’ll use them and choosing the suitable type will help you make the most out of your clear window decals.

Simple Installation with No Professional Help Required

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.

Before you begin to install your custom clear window decal, we recommend gathering the following supplies to help with the process:
  • Spray bottle
  • Paper Towels
  • Application Squeegee (available for purchase with order)
  • Window Squeegee

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.

How to Care for Clear Window Decals

How to Care for Clear Window Decals

Although we recommend using soapy water to help install your decal, do not expose it to water or excessive moisture for an extended period prior to installation. Once you’ve installed the decal, you may wash the window where it is applied, but we do not recommend power the surface as doing so may ruin the adhesive. You can also clean the decal using a damp, non-abrasive cloth.

Please note that our clear window decals may be removed and repositioned several times. You can take it off the surface by peeling the decal away from the window and reapplying using the same installation guide above.


Additional Window Decals

We offer several different window decal types to ensure you are able to get the decal that best meets your needs. Create a consistent look and make your business stand out by incorporating several different types of decals on your storefront, windows, or glass doors.

Q:
How do I clean my decal?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

Cleaning your decal regularly will help keep it looking bright and clear and you can do this by wiping it with a damp cloth.

Q:
How do I remove my decal? Will it leave residue on my window?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

Our custom window decals can be removed by simply peeling it away from the window or surface where it is applied. Because of our custom window decal's proprietary adhesion technology, you do not need to worry about it leaving any residue on your window.

Q:
Can I wash my window with the decal installed?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

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 as pressure washers can damage the decal and cause it to fall off the window.

Q:
Do you have one that is transparent from one side only?
Asked 3 days ago by Louis R.
A:

What do you mean about transparency on one side only? is this a design that you have in mind that would be on a certain set-up or a preference that you need? if we say transparent it means it's see-through. Feel free to call and chat with us. We might need more information with this type of inquiry.

Q:
Is the Window Decals measured in inches or feet? I am looking for one in inches. I saw where you said the smallest one would be a 3x3. Is this feet or inches?
Asked 25 days ago by Debbie C.
A:

Measurements online is in Inches. It says there 3x3 is in inches and not in feet

Q:
How do I install my outdoor window cling ?
Asked 3 months ago by Joy A.
A:

We offer two methods for installing window clings: the dry method and the wet method.

The dry method is recommended for applying small clings (less than 12" x 12"):

1. Remove the static cling from the board and place it in contact with the application surface. If the placement is incorrect, pick up the entire cling and reposition it. Do not attempt to slide the cling.

2. Once the material is in position, use a rubber squeegee to roll out any trapped air, working from the center of the cling to the edges.

The wet method is recommended for large decals (over 12" x 12"):

1. Prepare a wetting solution by mixing two or three teaspoons of liquid household detergent in one gallon of cold water.

2. Remove the static cling from the board and lay the material on a clean, flat surface with the side that will be adhered to the surface facing up.

3. Flood the application surface with the wetting solution. Alternatively, the wetting solution can be sprayed directly on the substrate.

4. Place the cling in contact with the application surface. The wetting solution will allow the decal to be slid across the surface for positioning purposes.

5. Once the material is in position, use a rubber roller or a squeegee to roll out the water, working from the center of the decal to the edges.

6. Use paper towels to blot any excess moisture and rub the edges to ensure the clings have adhered properly.

7. After 24 hours, the window may be washed.

Q:
Are these removeable and reusable or are they considered permanent?
Asked 3 months ago by Dorothy F.
A:

These are not removable. They have a permanent adhesive backing and will leave a mark if it's removed. I would recommend choosing clear window clings. This products are reusable and removable.
