What Are Opaque Window Clings?

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.

Removable and Repositionable

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.


Advanced Printing

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.

Whether your design is one color or multicolor, your cost is the same. If you don’t have a design ready but have an idea of what you’d like we can help. Take advantage of our free design services and we’ll help you get the perfect window cling display.

When your design uses a color or image background, opaque window clings are perfect. Keep in mind that you can also get a clear window cling if you are looking for something more transparent.

How to Install Opaque Window Clings

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).

1.
Step 1 for Installing Opaque Window Clings

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.

2.
Step 2 for Installing Opaque Window Clings

Once the surface is clean, gently peel the white backing away from the cling.

3.
Step 3 for Installing Opaque Window Clings

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.

4.
Step 4 for Installing Opaque Window Clings

Apply the cling to the surface by starting at the top, applying pressure as you work your way to the bottom.

5.
Step 5 for Installing Opaque Window Clings

Use a squeegee* to remove excess water and bubbles.

*Available for purchase with opaque window clings and other decal products.

6.
Step 6 for Installing Opaque Window Clings

Once dry, your window cling will adhere to the window while still being removable and repositionable!

Care

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.

Q:
How do I install my window cling?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

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.

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

You can clean your cling by using soapy water and a damp cloth or sponge. Gently wipe the back of your cling to remove any dirt or grime build up. Then use clean water and a damp cloth or sponge to wipe away any excess soap. Doing so regularly will help prolong the lifespan of your cling.

Q:
How do I store my window cling?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

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.

Q:
My window cling doesn’t cling anymore. How do I revitalize it?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

You can refresh your window cling by cleaning it with soapy water and then rinsing with clean water. Rub the window cling with a wool or fleece blanket to dry.

When reinstalling, make sure to spray the window and the cling with water. Then use a squeegee to apply the cling to the window.

Q:
What’s the best way to remove the decals from my window?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

The best way to remove window clings is with the use of a clean, sharp razor blade. Starting with one edge or corner, slip the blade underneath the film, and then carefully peel it off the window surface.

Q:
Would a window cling work for posting a 8 1/2" x 11" sign? I would then put a 12"x12" window cling over the sign to hold it in place. I'm trying to find a sign holder without suction cups for glass adhesion.
Asked 24 days ago by Beth
A:

8.5x11 window cling would work as a sign. Just make sure to make the letters big for readability.

Q:
If I have 6 different designs, do you have any additional art charges? I would either need 1 each of 6 or 2 each of 6.
Asked 2 months ago by Chris D.
A:

We do not charge for the art you submit. We just charge for the printing and not the basing on the files submitted.
