A perforated window decal is an image or graphic that is printed directly onto perforated, adhesive vinyl material. These decals feature one-way vision, allowing you to see outside the window when in your store but not inside when approaching your store. This is possible by puncturing 50% of the vinyl material with tiny holes called micropunctures. These micropunctures are small enough for the decal to maintain a high-quality image on one side yet be see-through on the other side.
These decals are for indoor and outdoor use. The most common uses include business/storefront advertising, window decor, product promotion, window signage, and branding. Mainly used to cover entire windows, they also deflect sunlight and provide shade and privacy.
No professional installation required. Install your decal in minutes using our step-by-step installation instructions provided with every order.
Placing your perforated window decal on the outside of the window allows maximum visibility, preventing the decal from being covered up by window glare or tint.
Your image or graphic will be printed onto perforated vinyl using world-class printers with an advanced four color process, ensuring that your decal will have the most vibrant and clear colors possible.
Designed for outdoor use, your perforated window sign is made with durable vinyl and will withstand rain, sun, and other elements with a lifespan of 3+ years.
50% of your decal will consist of solid vinyl material and the other 50% will consist of micro punctures. This allows one side of the graphic to appear opaque and the other side to appear see-through.

The following installation instructions will help you with a quick and easy installation of your perforated window decal. Instructions will also be included with your order, and you are free to 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.
Clean your window, removing all dirt and grime from the surface.
Lay out your decal on the window with the backing still on and make sure it is aligned properly.
Make markings on the window with a washable marker. Be sure to double check your alignment to make sure the perforated window decal is where you want it to be.
Pull the graphic 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 decal, which is black.
Align your decal to the markings made previously and begin to apply to the window. This will be a dry install, so do not use any water on the application surface or the adhesive side of the decal. Use a squeegee* or flat edge when applying, starting from the center and working your way outward towards the corner of the decal.
*Available for purchase with perforated window decal
Once you have applied the entire perforated decal to your window, remove the excess material around the edges using a razor blade.

1. If you are wanting to cover an entire window with your perforated window decal start by measuring the largest width and height to ensure your graphic will cover all areas of the window.
2. Order your graphic 1” wider than the width of your window and 1” higher than the height of your window to allow room for trimming. For example, if your window is 50” x 20” order a 51” x 21” decal.
3. When designing your custom decal, place your design/image/graphic in the center of the decal to make sure no part of the main design will be cut off when trimming.
4. To maximize the visibility of your decal, be sure to use a high contrast between backgrounds and lettering, objects, and images in your design. Generally speaking, dark lettering/objects/images with a light background installed on a dark surface tend to work best. Please note that your decal may appear washed out or allow two way visibility if it is dark outside and the lights are on inside.
The most unique feature of perforated window decals and signs is their ability to provide one-way vision. The micropunctures in the material allow a vibrant image or graphic to be displayed on the outside of the window yet allow you to see through the decal from the inside. This is great for advertising promotions, sales, and products all while maintaining privacy and shade from the sun. Please note that the one-way vision of perforated decals can be negated when the interior setting is brighter than the exterior setting such as a well-lit store at nighttime. This is true of any perforated or one-way vision decal.
1. Measure Your Full Window
Measure the full size (height and width) of your windows in inches. Do not include in your calculations the rubber and/or metal on the outside edges of the window. i.e. the exterior or outermost rubber/metal of the entire window.
2. Measure Each Window Individually
Measure the full size (height and width) of each window in inches. Do not include in your calculations the rubber and/or metal by the glass panes of the window. i.e. the interior rubber/metal panes of the windows.
