With our semi-permanent opaque window decals, you can add custom graphics that will last indoors and out, yet are easily removed when you're ready for a new look. Decals are printed on durable, white adhesive vinyl that will give a professional look to any retail or office window for advertising or decor purposes. They can even be contour cut for a more personalized design.
Installation: Thoroughly clean the window surface and allow it to dry. For smaller decals, simply peel off the backing and lightly press the decals onto the window. For larger decals, coat the adhesive side with slightly soapy water (1-3 drops of soap), position them on the window and then use a rubber-tipped squeegee to remove air pockets and excess water. The adhesive will activate once it is dry.
Care: Do not let your decals become exposed to water for an extended period of time before installing. Once installed, clean with a damp cloth. Avoid power washing, which could cause the decals to peel and lose their adhesive quality. To remove the decals, peel away from the window, then use a razor blade and window cleaner to remove any excess adhesive residue.

Regardless of the end use of your decal we can cut it to shape. We can do this in two different ways. The first is to cut it to the exact perimeter of your design. This is called contour cut. The second way is to cut it to shape but leave a small border around the entire edge of your sign. This is called halo cut. These two options are available for any window decal but should be used with discretion when complex designs are involved. For complex designs we recommend a simple rectangle or square shaped decal.
Individual letters that can be applied to windows are actually a different product entirely. This product is called cut vinyl or vinyl lettering. This isn’t currently offered on our website but is something we can produce for both personal and commercial use. If this is what you are looking for please contact us to get a custom quote and discuss options.
Installation & Care
The first step in installing your decal is to ensure that you have properly cleaned and marked the surface where it will be placed. Using a wet rag and water clean the surface of any dirt, grime or existing grease. Allow the window or surface to completely air dry.
Use a dry erase marker or other temporary writing instrument to mark where the decal will be placed on your window. This is important for proper alignment and spacing. Needless to say marking where the decal will be placed is not mandatory but will help with the installation of bigger decals or those that must be installed to exact measurements or aligned with existing signage.
Once these two steps are done you are ready to install your decal. The first step is to peel the decal away from the backing that is protecting the adhesive side of the decal. After removing the backing spray the window with water using any regular water bottle. You should also spray the back side, or adhesive side of the decal. Spray both generously as the water on the window and the decal will give you “wiggle room” while installing the decal. This will ensure that even if there are air bubbles when originally placed that the decal can be repositioned or peeled back before the adhesive properties take hold.
Once the decal and window surface are wet you should lightly press the decal against the window. Use a squeegee to remove excess water and air as you have the decal positioned as you want. Once the decal and window dry the adhesive properties will kick in. After this point your decal will not be repositionable.
You can remove your decal by simply peeling it away from the window or surface upon which it was applied. Any residual adhesive can be removed with common window cleaner. In some cases a sharp edge may be needed to removed the adhesive that is left behind.
For decals that have been in place for an extended period heat may be needed. Heating up the decal makes it easier to remove. We recommend a simply blow dryer to heat the decal before peeling it away in these situations.
