121 Reviews



What Are Permanent Decals?

Permanent decals are similar to other decals but are designed for long-term commercial and industrial use. They use 3M’s Controltac™ and Comply™ v3 and have been created for both indoor and outdoor purposes. As a result, they can stick to surfaces such as wood, brick, metal, cement, and more.

These high-adhesive decals are built to last in even the toughest of conditions. If you’re looking for a decal that can be exposed to rain, dirt, and/or the sun, these are the decals for you.

At Signs.com, we offer permanent decals in any size. You can also choose from the following shapes available:

  • Square
  • Rectangle
  • Circle
  • Oval
  • Rounded Corners (¼")
  • Rounder Corners (1”)

Installation

To install these permanent decals, begin by removing the back liner and place your decal on the intended flat or slightly curved surface. Once your decal is placed, use a plastic squeegee to press them firmly against the substrate. As you squeegee, the decal will release its adhesive residue for permanent installation. Allow 24 hours for the decal to fully adhere to the surface.

Product Specs

What’s the difference between permanent decals and permanent stickers?

The terms "permanent decals" and "permanent stickers" can be used interchangeably. Typically stickers are smaller, and less permanent than decals. Decals are larger and more permanent.

What is the lifespan of permanent decals?

The average lifespan of these decals is 5+ years with proper installation and care.

Are there any other names for permanent decals?

People refer to them as a number of things, two of the most common being permanent stickers and high-adhesive decals/stickers.

Can permanent decals be removed?

Technically, yes, but we don’t recommend it. Because of their high-adhesive, they will likely damage the surface upon removal. In addition to that, they are very difficult to remove. We recommend installing them in places where they are not intended to be removed.

Can permanent decals be used outside?

Yes! Permanent decals are perfect for outside. They can withstand harsh elements such as rain, mud, dirt, wind, etc.

Will water ruin my permanent decal?

No, with proper installation, water will not ruin your permanent decal. After installing your permanent decal, give it 24 hours to fully adhere to its surface. After that, you will no longer have to worry about water damaging it.

How do I know if permanent decals are right for me?

If you need a decal that is built to last in even the toughest elements and don’t plan on removing it, permanent decals are perfect for you. They will last in even the toughest situations and can be applied to various surfaces.

Yes, we do. We offer any custom size, and you can also choose from the following shapes:

  • Square
  • Rectangle
  • Circle
  • Oval
  • Rounded Corners (¼")
  • Rounder Corners (1”)
  • Custom Shape
  • Custom with Border

Can I reposition permanent decals?

No, you can’t. Our permanent decals are made of a high-tack adhesive material, designed to stick on most surfaces longer than regular decals.

How long will my permanent decal sticker last?

If installed properly, the estimated lifespan of our permanent decals is at least five years.

What type of adhesive is used?

Our permanent decals are made of 3M 180C adhesive vinyl, a very durable and high-quality pressure-activated material. It is designed for long-term use so the decals can last for years. It easily conforms to curves, flat surfaces, and corrugations, so it’s suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The high tack and strong adhesion creates a permanent bond that prevents air bubbles and also makes the decal impossible to simply remove. Removing the permanent decals may damage the surface, especially when new.

How can I remove my permanent decals without damaging the wall?

If you need to remove your permanent decal, the safest way is to apply heat. You can soak the surface in hot water, use a heat gun, or hair dryer. When the decal warms up, gently peel it off and clean the surface with an adhesive remover.
