Opaque window decals are adhesive decals that you can place on any window, glass door or other smooth surface. These semi-permanent decals can be printed at nearly any size and do not need professional assistance for installation. Opaque window decals will last indoors and outdoors for years with proper care, yet are easily removed when you’re ready for a new look.
Opaque window decals work wonderfully for posting store hours or advertising a logo or brand in a window. All window decals can be cut to the exact outline of the design by selecting custom from the shape options. You can also choose to have a border around the outline of your design by selecting custom with border in the shape options. What ever you choose, your opaque window decal will look great!
Standard and inside glass options are available, allowing you to place your decal on either the inside or outside of your storefront window or door.
Install your opaque window decal in minutes without the need of professional help. Installation instructions are included with every order or can be found below, helping you know exactly what to do.
Your design will be printed onto premium white adhesive vinyl in full color using the best printing technologies available. The result is a vibrant design that can be displayed proudly on any smooth, non-porous surface.

The following installation instructions will help you with a quick and easy installation of your custom opaque window decal. You will recieve instructions with your order. You can also refer to this page or download a PDF of the instructions 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.
Begin to remove the back liner. The backing is a white material that can be difficult to remove due to its thinness. If you are having difficulty, try peeling a small corner away and use one hand to hold the backing against the window or surface while you slowly peel the rest of the decal away from the backing.
If your decal is larger than 16”x16” or if it has a custom shape, we recommend having at least two people help with this process to avoid tearing the decal or having the adhesive side stick to itself.
After 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 opaque 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.

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 shape option is known as "Custom" (previously known as, or sometimes referred to as 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 "Custom with Border" (previously known as or sometimes referred to as 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. Visit our vinyl lettering page for more information on this product
Yes! you can choose to design your opaque window decal as as square/rectangle, rounded corners (1/4" or 1" radius), circle/oval, custom, or custom with boarder. Simply select these options from the shape dropdown in the design tool.

How small or big can my window decal be?
Your decal can not be smaller than 6”x6” nor bigger than 52”x1798”. So as long as you can keep one of your dimensions between 6” and 52” you can create a decal of virtually any size.
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.
