Window clings (sometimes known as static clings or static window clings) are similar to decals as they are printed onto a thin white vinyl material that can be easily applied to a smooth surface. Unlike decals, however, window clings stick to glass and other smooth surfaces without any adhesive. No sticky adhesive means no mess plus the benefit of being able to reuse and reposition your cling as you please. Opaque window clings are the perfect choice for temporary signage.
Opaque window clings are printed in full color with high resolution digital UV Ink. Having a brilliant print means you can proudly display a fantastic design in minutes with an opaque window cling. Although these window clings are not intended for vehicle use or other exterior applications, they provide excellent window signage for any occasion.
Create your opaque cling in whatever shape you want. Plus with advanced digital printing, your design will be full color at no additional cost.
Your cling can be up in minutes. If you feel it needs to be moved or adjusted, no problem—simply peel it off and move it wherever you like.
Need a temporary signage solution that can be used over and over again? Opaque window clings are the perfect seasonal option.
Unlike window decals, you don’t have to worry about any messy or tedious clean up after removing your custom window clings.
With clings, you’re in full control whenever you want to move or take down your design. Window clings can be placed on a window, removed when needed, then reused again. In comparison to decals, window clings have the added benefit of not leaving any adhesive residue when taken down.
Repositioning your cling is simple. Just peel it away from the surface and put it back wherever you want. A little water with a couple drops of dish soap works wonders to get your cling adjusted on the window just right. Use a squeegee to remove air pockets and excess water then let it dry. See the installation instructions for more details.
When you are done displaying your cling, you can store it for later use by putting it back on the white backing that came with your cling. You can also use wax paper if you no longer have the backing. Store your cling flat, in a cool, dry place.
Opaque window clings are printed in full color with UV ink using a digital printing process. This means that no matter how simple or detailed your design, you can expect a clear image and text on your cling.

Applying your window cling can be done in a few simple steps. All you need is the window cling, a clean surface, a soap and water mixture in a spray bottle, and a squeegee (available for purchase with a window cling).
Thoroughly clean the surface of the glass or non-porous surface you’re applying the window cling to. Use water or any other household window cleaner.
Once the surface is clean, gently peel the white backing away from the cling.
Use a light soap and water mixture to spray the window and the non-printed side of your cling (the front for inside glass window clings or the rear for outside glass, or standard surface, window clings). While a light wet application is recommended, your cling can be applied without using the soapy water solution.
Apply the cling to the surface by starting at the top, applying pressure as you work your way to the bottom.
Use a squeegee* to remove excess water and bubbles.
*Available for purchase with opaque window clings and other decal products.
Once dry, your window cling will adhere to the window while still being removable and repositionable!

Custom opaque window clings can be easily cleaned using a damp cloth or paper towel. Gently wipe dirt or residue from the surface of the cling and surrounding window. When needing to store the window cling, simply remove it from the window, wipe it down to remove any surface dirt, then re-apply the protective backing on the ‘adhesive’ side. If you don’t have the protective backing, wax paper can be used as a protective backing.

Our custom opaque window clings are made from white vinyl. The material itself is a non-adhesive static cling signage option. This means it contains no adhesive glues which allows for easy installation, removal, and reuse. Custom window clings adhere to the surface of the window due to the vinyl working like mini-suction cup.
Opaque window clings are not transparent. Thus, by default, the background of your sign will be white. If you want a transparent background you should check out our clear window clings.
Opaque window clings are different from opaque window decals in the way that they stick to smooth surfaces. A window cling sometimes known as a static cling adheres to smooth surfaces similar to a suction cup. A decal, on the other hand, has a sticky adhesive which creates a bond between the vinyl and the attaching surface. Clings are perfect for temporary solutions such as advertisements and promotions or seasonal designs. Decals are generally designed for semi-permanent or long-term window signage solutions.
The final appearance of opaque window clings and opaque window decals are very similar. Both window display options use beautiful, full-color printing technology and show excellent design quality.
You have the freedom to customize your opaque window cling to almost any size you want! There aren’t any industry specific standard sizes for window clings. While there are certain sizes that are more common (6”x9”, 9”x12”, 12”x18”, 12”x24”, 16”x20”, 18”x24”, and 24”x36”) due to the clings being used for store hours, sales, etc. Notwithstanding, there is a minimum and maximum dimension allowable for your window cling.
Clings can’t be smaller than 6” and no bigger than 400”. Clings smaller than 6”x6” do not adhere as well and may result in printing that is not as clear due to our large format printers. It is also recommended that you avoid using very tiny fonts or lettering to ensure your cling is printed clearly.
Opaque window clings work great for designs that include full color throughout the entire design. Common uses for opaque window clings include sales advertisements, seasonal window decor, business hours, and window runners and borders. Opaque window clings are great for blocking the view inside the window or outside of the window.
Clear clings, on the other hand, offer the advantage of being see-through on the areas where ink is not printed. Thus, storefronts or retail locations are perfect places to use clear clings. This allows you to advertise your promotion or sale while still allowing your customers to see your product displays and store.
Yes, we offer several shape options for our opaque window clings including square/rectangle, rounded corners with a ¼” radius or 1” radius, circle/oval, and custom with border (previously known as or sometimes referred to as halo). Custom with Border is a great option for opaque window clings as it leaves a nice white boarder around your entire design. Wether you select the option Custom With Border, Custom, or otherwise, you can customize your cling 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 vinyl lettering which is a different product entirely.
Clings are most typically used inside. Although they can be used outdoors, we don’t normally recommend it. If you are going to use them outdoors make sure to follow installation instructions and remove them before any severe weather. Due to their ability to be removed and reapplied quickly and easily using them outdoors can work.
If you want them to display outside but be installed inside, select “Inside Glass” which means that we’ll reverse print your cling. You can then hang your cling on the inside of your storefront or window to be viewed by those outside or approaching your business. This method of printing accomplishes the visibility you want and keeps the cling out of the elements. However, make sure that your window isn’t tinted or the visibility of your cling will be limited.
We do not recommend clings be used on the exterior of any type of vehicle. Opaque window clings are not designed to be used on cars and will fly off your vehicle. We recommend our car decals or magnets for car signage.
Your window cling can be installed in much the same way as our window decals. First, ensure that the surface where you will be placing the window cling is both cleaned and allowed time to completely dry. Peel away the cling from the back lining, spray the cling and the window with light water and dish soap solution (we recomend 3 drops of dish soap to 1 gallon of water), then apply the cling and use a squeegee or a credit card to firmly press the cling to the window and remove the water. Start from the middle of the cling and move outwards.
As long as the surface is completely cleaned before installation, you may also simply apply the cling to the surface without the water and dish soap solution—just use the squeegee to get a firm “cling”. A dry install might not cling to the surface as long as a wet install but is faster and easier.
If you plan on storing your opaque cling for future use you need to keep the lining that it originally comes on. You can use this lining to carefully put the cling back on and store in a cool and dry room with a sheet of paper or wax paper on both sides.
If you don’t have the lining, simply store them flat between sheets of wax paper.
Do not roll or fold your clings. Removing creases and curls is difficult.
