Rear window graphics (also known as perforated car window decals) are specialized decals designed for the use on the rear and side windows of your vehicle. These decals are made using perforated vinyl, meaning that tiny holes called micro punctures are punctured into 50% of the material. This allows the design on the decal to be visible from the outside and see-through from the inside. Using rear window graphics is a great way to advertise your business or show off a custom design while still maintaining clear visibility when looking out your vehicle’s windows.
Custom rear window graphics are commonly used to cover the entire rear or side windows on cars, trucks, jeeps, vans, commercial vehicles, semi trucks, and any other type of vehicle that has windows.
No need to pay for professional installation. Install your perforated window decal on your car or truck in a matter of minutes with the assistance of our installation instructions or installation video.
You can order your rear window graphic in just about any size you can think of, making sure you get the perfect size and only pay for the material you need.
Your custom design will be printed onto perforated vinyl material using world-class printers. Premium ink is used with an advanced four-color process, designed to leave your graphic’s colors looking vibrant for several years.
50% of your rear window graphic will consists of micro punctures that provide one way visibility. This helps you maintain safety while driving, allowing you to still see clearly out the window.
Applying your car window sign to the outside of the window ensures that your message will be seen and will not be washed out by window glare, tint, or dirt. It is also specifically made to withstand outdoor use.
Using rear window graphics and signs is one of the most effective and safe ways to advertise your products, services, or business on your vehicle. When using other decals, they tend to obstruct vision and can even lead to unsafe driving. Rear window graphics allow you to display large messages and still maintain full visibility of your surroundings.

1. When measuring the size of your car or truck window, be sure to measure the largest width and height to ensure that your sign will cover all areas of the window.
2. Order your graphic 2” wider and higher than the length of your window. This allows room for trimming and will ensure that you order a size large enough to cover the entire window. For example, if your window is 50” x 20” order a decal that is 52” x 22”.
3. When designing your custom rear window graphic, place your design/image/graphic in the center of the decal to make sure it will not be affected by trimming.
4. In order to maximize the visibility of your decal, be sure to use as much contrast as possible between the background color and your design. For example, if you use a light background with a light design or lettering it may be difficult for others to see. Or if your decal is very dark and is placed on any sort of tinted window it may appear washed out. Thus, design and intended surfaces should be considered when creating your graphic.
Installing your rear window graphic is a simple and straightforward process that does not require any professional help. A set of instructions will be included with your order to assist you. You may also view the installation instructions below, download the installation instructions PDF, or view the installation instructions video.
Please Note: This is not a decal meant for wet install, so please do not use any water on the decal or window when installing.
Clean your car window, removing all dirt and grime from the surface. Allow the window to fully air dry before proceeding.
Lay out your decal on your vehicle’s window with the backing still on and make sure it is aligned properly and that you’ve ordered the correct size.
Pull the decal away from the window and remove the backing, exposing the black adhesive side of the decal. If the backing appears to be tearing when removing it, this may be because you are not removing all layers of the backing. When removing the backing, you should be able to see the back of the graphic, which is black.
Place the graphic back onto your vehicle’s window, making sure it is aligned with the markings made previously. Begin to apply to the window, using a squeegee* or flat edge. Start from the center of the graphic and work your way towards the outer corners.

Once you have applied the entire decal to your window, remove the excess material around the edges using a razor blade. Be sure to use caution when doing this to avoid damaging your vehicle’s window or paint.

There are several different shape options to choose from for your perforated car window decals, including Square/Rectangle, Rounded Corners (1” radius), Circle/Oval, Custom or Custom with Border.
The Custom shape option (previously known, or sometimes referred to, as Contour Cut) allows you to either upload a custom shape to our design tool or have us create a custom shape for your sign based off of your design. The Custom with Border shape option (previously known, or sometimes referred to, as as Halo Cut) is similar to the Custom shape option but will leave a small border around the edge of your design.
There are two things to note with cut to shape perforated decals. The first is that in most cases it is not necessary. This is due to the fact that it offers one way visibility and so it doesn’t matter if it covers the entire window. Unlike other decals that may obstruct visibility and need to be cut this isn’t the case with perforated decals.
The second note is that due to the micropunctures of the perforated decal, cutting will not leave a flush or straight edge. Rather the edge will result in a somewhat ragged edge. While this shouldn’t affect the functionality of your decal we don’t want it to come as a surprise if you decide to choose one of our cut options.
Our recommendation for perforated decals is to simply have them cover the entire window and avoid cutting them to shape.
Yes, your decal comes with an adhesive side that is protected by a backing when originally shipped. Removing it is much like peeling a sticker away from a sticker sheet. The easiest way to do so is to start in a corner to get it started. Once started gently peel away the backing to expose the adhesive side of the decal.
If the very thin backing is hard to find or remove then a piece of scotch tape can be used to help peel away the backing. Simply put the piece of scotch tape on corner of the backing with part of it sticking off the edge of the sign. Then use the piece of tape like a tab and pull the backing away.
Please be sure to remove the backing slowly and carefully so that you don’t unintentionally leave part of the backing on the sign.
For the installation of your perforated decal, water should not be used. Before installing your decal make sure to read through all the instructions.
The first step is to clean your window with water and allow it to air dry. Once it is dry you can remove the backing protecting the decal’s adhesive side. Make sure the decal doesn’t stick to itself once the backing is removed!
The next step is the initial application of the decal to the window. This should be done lightly and methodically so that as air bubbles or pockets arise the decal can be peeled away and reapplied as needed. The easiest way to accomplish this is to “tack” two of the corners of the decal into place. To tack the corners just gently press the decal against the window in the corners. This will allow you to then apply the rest of the decal working from one side of the decal to the other. Carefully peel it back and reapply as necessary. Using a flat edge such as a squeegee helps to apply the decal without air pockets arising.
Once the entire decal is in place it can be pressed more firmly onto the window to ensure that the adhesive fully sets in. As noted elsewhere, once the adhesive is fully active removing and repositioning your decal will not be possible.
Your decal should be washed regularly. To do so use a wet or damp cloth that is non-abrasive to gently wipe away any build up on the laminate overlay. This will help retain the transparency of the decal and the vibrancy of the printed design.
While your decal is installed you should not use power or pressure washers at home nor car washes. The power of both of these methods can be significant enough to cause the decal to start to peel away or to rip the decal right off the window.
To remove your decal simply pull the decal away from the window. A sharp edge that won’t damage the window itself can be used to help peel it away. Usually no residue will be left, but when the decal is aged or has been exposed to extreme conditions, some residue may be left behind. In these cases most standard cleaners and a scrubbing will remove it.
Difficult to remove decals come off easier when heated up. This can be accomplished by parking in the sun before removing it or even heating up the window with the car’s heat or a blow dryer. Though having to do either of the latter is rare and a last resort option for a decal that may have been in place for years.
