Outdoor wall decals, also known as outdoor wall stickers or outdoor wall graphics, are perfect for customizing storefronts, office buildings, schools and more. Unlike most outdoor wall graphics, ours are manufactured out of an aluminum foil base that’s both recyclable and PVC-free. Its superior adhesive and quality gives it a longer lifespan against vinyl alternatives, as well as the ability to conform to virtually any unsmooth or uneven surface.
The aluminum base also boasts more vibrant colors, better visibility day and night, all while being abrasion and weather resistant. Best of all, no special tools are required for installation: it’s as easy as peeling and placing on any exterior wall!
Use them to advertise ongoing sales, to guide customers, brand walls for events, and more!
Use a custom outdoor wall decal on virtually any outdoor surface - even or uneven - to drive foot traffic to your store and make your walls come alive!
Outdoor wall decals should not be applied to painted or sealed surfaces. Both of these can result in problems during removal.
Our foil-based outdoor wall graphics offer a number of advantages that make them an easy decision over vinyl products for outdoor use on the surfaces outlined above. These advantages include: superior durability, installation without having to use special tools, the ability to conform or be applied to uneven surfaces, easier and cleaner removal, and a more vibrantly printed design that appears as if it has been painted onto the end surface. We’re confident you’ll love your custom outdoor wall graphics!

Most outdoor wall decals require extensive cleaning and pressure washing of the surface prior to application. Because our graphics are foil-based, installation of your custom graphic is much easier. In most cases, simply spray down the wall or surface to ensure it is free of dirt and grime and you’ll be ready to apply it in the desired location. No heat gun. No sealers. Just press and stick. It’s that simple!
Best of all, when you’re ready to remove your graphics, they will come off clean, in one piece, leaving no residue or marks.Full installation and care instructions

To properly install your outdoor wall decal the surface must first be prepared before application. The application surface where applied should be above freezing when first applied. For best results, apply your graphic when the surface temperature is above 50 F.
Please Note: For large decals intended to cover entire windows or large surfaces we recommend professional installation for best results.
Once your surface is clean and completely dry, section by section, remove the brown paper back liner from the decal. Please note that the decal is not repositionable, so it’s important that you lay it precisely where you want it on the desired surface. Avoid crinkling your decal in any way before application
Lay the decal on the desired surface, pressing firmly from the center out to the edges, ensuring the material conforms to the surface beneath to maximize adhesion. For uneven surfaces it is best to apply the decal a little bit at a time to make sure it adheres as the decal is not stretchy by nature.
To make installation easier, a hand roller (optional purchase) can be used to apply even pressure across the decal to ensure it sticks properly after pressing it to the surface with your hand.
Adhesion is instant and permanent once completely pressed. The adhesive material will take about 24 hours to completely set.
Note: We do not recommend applying to painted and/or sealed surfaces. Also, avoid cracks or crevices as they may prevent adhesion or leade to be unintentional punctures.

Our outdoor wall decals are rugged, enabling them to withstand inclement and harsh weather conditions for up to 5 years with proper care and maintenance. And, with our UV in, they’re also highly resistant to fading, scratching and abrasions. The decals are rated to work in temperatures ranging from -40F to 302F assuming they are installed at the proper temperatures
Once you’re ready to remove your outdoor wall decal, it will come off clean and easily without any special tools, leaving no residue on unsealed surfaces. It’s important to note that applying these decals to painted or sealed surfaces should be approached with caution, as some paints may be damaged or a residue may be left in these cases.
Our outdoor wall decals will readily stick to cinder block, terrazzo, metal, vinyl, concrete, asphalt, brick, stucco, tile, and even glass. They can also be used on swimming pool and fountain floors, as long as the surface is dried when the graphic is applied and allowed to set for at least 24 hours, prior to refilling the body of water.
While these graphics will have no trouble adhering to glass, we would recommend one of our many custom window or vehicle decals that are better suited for use on glass. Glass and polished masonry surfaces (think polished marble) can result in residual adhesive and are not the best surfaces for these decals.
The primary surfaces that should be avoided are painted or sealed ones. Adhering your decals to painted surfaces can cause damage to the surface paint when removed even if the paint is fully cured in some cases. Sealed surfaces should be avoided as the combination of the sealant and the strong adhesive property of the decal can make removal very difficult.
Generally speaking, our outdoor wall decals are easy to install and can be done without any specialized tools. Nonetheless, a rubber hand roller (also known as J-Roller) can assist in ensuring the decal is pressed evenly onto the desired surface. These rollers are offered as an additional accessory for purchase, available in the options section of our design tool.
Smaller graphics can easily be installed by just one person, however we do recommended additional hands for installing larger graphics as they will need to be applied precisely and correctly the first time. For extra large decals that may require paneling, please contact us if you are interested in professional installation services.
Proper installation of your outdoor wall decal requires a brief preparation of the surface prior to application. The surface should be above freezing at the time of application: for best results, apply your wall decal when the surface temperature is above 50 F.
1. Clean the surface to ensure it is free of debris for proper adhesion. Your main goal is to remove any dirt or grime that may prevent adhesion. A hose or power washer is typically sufficient.
2. Avoid applying your graphic over any foreign or loose substances or cracks/crevices that may negatively impact the graphic’s ability to properly adhere.
3. A mixture of 50/50 to 70/30 percent isopropyl alcohol (IPA) + water can be used for dirty surfaces where the adhesion could be difficult. After applying the solution, spray it with a hose and allow it to air dry. This step is rarely needed.
1. Once your surface is clean and completely dry, remove the brown paper back liner from the decal. Please note that the decal is not repositionable, so it’s important that you lay it precisely where you want it on the desired surface. Avoid crinkling or bending your decal in any way before application.
2. Lay the decal on the desired surface, pressing firmly from the center out to the edges, ensuring the material conforms to the surface beneath to maximize adhesion. For uneven surfaces it is best to apply the decal a little bit at a time to make sure it adheres as the decal is not stretchy by nature.

Note: We do not recommend applying to painted and/or sealed surfaces. Also, avoid cracks or crevices that do not allow for adhesion or can be intentionally or inadvertently punctured
It’s simple to remove your outdoor wall decal. You only need to peel it away from the surface, starting from one corner of the decal, continuing until the entire decal separates from thef surface. The decal will remove in one piece without any residue, from unsealed surfaces. Typically no residue or adhesive will be left behind when you remove your decal from the surface. If there is residual adhesive left behind most standard mild adhesive cleaners can be used to remove it.
To clean your decals, avoid the use of powerful pressure washers and abrasive cloths. A soft wash cloth and warm water will suffice to keep your wall decals clean and visible. Lightly spraying the decal from a garden hose or a low pressure power washer from a distance greater than 36” can also help to clean the decals. If using a low power pressure washer avoid spraying it directly at the edges of your decal even when you are at least 36” away.
Prior to use, these decals may be stored provided they are kept in a cool, dry place and are not heavily stacked, as so doing may cause wrinkling which could prevent the decal from properly adhering.
