This material cannot be larger than 53 inches by 1800 inches, or smaller than 6 inches by 6 inches.
Known by a number of different terms including sidewalk graphics, street graphics, concrete stickers, etc., street and sidewalk decals are the perfect way to personalize any outdoor walkway and some traffic areas* such as driveways and parking lots. Unlike most outdoor floor graphics, ours are manufactured out of a recyclable, PVC-free aluminum foil base, which boasts a longer lifespan, more vibrant colors, and better slip-resistance than vinyl alternatives.
Custom street graphics are also abrasion and weather resistant, conformable to unsmooth or uneven surfaces, can be installed and removed without special tools or extra hassle, and are certified slip resistant.
Custom street and sidewalk decals are perfect for events, festivals, races, campus tours, and walkways to direct foot traffic, advertise sales, brand storefronts and more.
*Can withstand “rolling vehicle traffic” which means traffic that drives straight over the graphic but does not stop, turn, or grind directly on top of the graphic.
Use a custom sidewalk decal on virtually any outdoor surface - even or uneven - to drive foot traffic to your store and make any street or sidewalk come alive!
Street decals should not be applied to painted or sealed surfaces. Both of these can result in problems during removal.
While vinyl based decals are the norm in many situations, foil-based street and sidewalk decals 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 the ability to conform or be applied to uneven surfaces, the installation without specialized tools, far superior durability, a certified non-slip surface, easier and cleaner removal, and a more vibrantly printed design that appears as if it has been painted onto the end surface. We’re positive you’ll love your custom foil-based street and sidewalk graphics!

To properly install your outdoor floor 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.
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 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.
If needed, a hand roller (optional purchase) can be used to ensure the decal is adhered evenly after initially pressing it to the surface with your hand.
Adhesion is instant and, once firmly pressed, the decal is immediately ready for foot and vehicular traffic (“rolling vehicular traffic”, no stopping, turning, pivoting, etc.). However, it will take up to 24 hours for the decal’s adhesive to fully dry.
Note: Our foil-based graphics can be used on the floor or bottom of a pool or pond, provided the body of water is drained and the surface dried before applying. Allow the decal 24 hours to set before refilling. 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.

These graphics are rated for heavy pedestrian traffic and “rolling” vehicle traffic. Keep in mind, excessive foot traffic may reduce the estimated lifespan of the graphic.
For vehicle traffic, rolling vehicle traffic will not damage the graphic. “Rolling vehicle traffic” is defined as motion in a straight path - either forward or in reverse. Any vehicle traffic, including forklifts, that stop, brake, turn, or pivot directly on top of the graphic can and most likely will result in permanent and irreversible damage to your graphic.
Thus, the graphics are not recommended for areas trafficked by vehicles that operate in such a manner. In the near future we will offer a outdoor floor graphic that is rated and safe for all vehicle traffic. If you’d like to be notified of when this product is available please contact us so we can let you know!
Our street and sidewalk decals are weather and slip-resistant, making them perfect for outdoor use! Though they can also be used indoors assuming it is with a compatible surface. We do not recommend applying to any surface that is sealed or painted. Using them indoors may increase the lifespan of the decal beyond 12 months.
These outdoor decals are weather resistant and can be used in both dry and wet conditions. For ramps and steeply angled application surfaces we recommend testing the slip-resistance during wet conditions before allowing them to be walked over by your customers, congregants, or otherwise
Our street and sidewalk graphics are rated to last up to 12 months of outside use under heavy pedestrian traffic. Using them inside or in less trafficked areas may increase this lifespan.
Harsh weather conditions and climates can potentially shorten the lifespan of your decal. Graphics that are applied to surfaces that are wet or below 32 F (50 F is the recommend surface temperature) can also have a reduced lifespan due to improper initial adhesion. Lastly, anything other than “rolling vehicle traffic” can permanently damage your graphic
Unlike most alternative materials, these outdoor floor decals will come off clean without any residue on any unsealed surface, as well as on glass.
For certain polished surfaces, such as polished metal or sealed concrete, a residue may remain. Additionally, it is not recommended that these decals be installed on painted surfaces as doing so may cause damage to the paint or the underlying surface even when the paint has fully cured before applying the decal.
Our street and sidewalk decals will aggressively adhere to concrete, asphalt, brick, stucco, tile, cinder block, terrazzo, metal, vinyl, and even glass. Additionally, they can be used on the floors of pools, provided the water is emptied first and the surface is completely dry before applying them. Additionally, pool floor applications would require the graphic to set for at least 24 hours prior to refilling.
Rolling vehicle traffic won’t damage the decal. Rolling vehicle traffic is defined as straight forward or backwards motion over the graphic. However, stops or turns on the decal may cause permanent and irreversible damage.
Materials stored on top of the applied graphics should not be slid or pushed across its surface, as doing so may cause edges to lift and render the graphics unusable.
You won’t need any specialized tools, however a rubber hand roller (also known as J-Roller) may make the process easier and ensure proper application of the decal. If desired, this is offered as an optional add-on that can be added to your order while designing it on our design tool. With the exception of very large graphics, installation is simple and easy enough to be done by just one person without additional help. For large graphics, we do recommend additional hands to ensure your decal is applied correctly the first time.
To properly install your outdoor floor 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 when the surface temperature is above 50 F.
1. Sweep the surface to ensure it is free of any debris such as loose gravel, caked dirt, oils, grease, sand, etc. This will ensure proper adhesion.
2. Ensure the surface is dry. If the surface is greasy or otherwise unclean, power wash the area then allow it to dry before applying your graphic. A commercial degreaser may be necessary for stubborn substances.
3. A mixture of 50/50 to 70/30 percent isopropyl alcohol (IPA) + water can be used for surfaces where adhesion is difficult. After applying the solution, wipe with a soft cloth. A second pass often helps with adhesion. Once the surface is clean and dry you are ready to install your decal.
1. Before starting the application process we recommend you lay your graphic with the back liner still still in place on the surface exactly where you intend to install it to ensure proper fit.
2. Remove the brown paper back liner from your 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. While these decals are not as unforgiving as some of our window and vehicle decals we recommend not letting the adhesive side stick to itself during installation. Multiple people helping during installation of large graphics will help prevent this.
3. Lay the decal on the desired surface, pressing firmly from left to right, top to bottom, ensuring the material conforms to the surface beneath to maximize adhesion. For best results with uneven surfaces you’ll need to move slowly and ensure that the decal is fully adhered as you go.
Alternatively, you can also peel away only a small portion of the back liner and firmly press the exposed part to the surface first. Then you can slowly and simultaneously peel away the back liner and apply the exposed portion of your decal to the surface to prevent self-sticking.
4. If needed, a hand roller (optional purchase) can be used to ensure the graphic is firmly adhered.
5. Adhesion is instant and, once firmly pressed, the decal is immediately ready for foot and vehicular traffic (“rolling vehicular traffic”, no stopping, turning, pivoting, etc.). However, it will take up to 24 hours for the decal’s adhesive to fully dry
Removal of the decal is very simple, and they’ll come off clean from any unsealed surfaces. To remove the decal, simply peel back one of the corners of the decal and pull it away at a 45 degree angle, removing the graphic in one piece. A squeegee or other flat object may be used to leverage the decal away from the surface in cases where the edges of the graphic have sheared, making grip difficult.
No special tools should be needed for removal of your decal.
To clean your graphic(s), lightly spray the decal with water from a low pressure hose and sweep with a broom; avoid harsh cleaning chemicals as they may damage or negatively affect the decal
If you choose to use a pressure washer ensure that it is set to “Low” and is used no closer than 36”. Using a power washer on too intense a setting or too close to the graphic may cause irreversible damage, especially near the edges.
If you need to store your graphics for a period for time before applying them they should be so long as you store them on the original backer they are shipped with and do so for no longer than 2 years in an environment that is above room temperature
Nothing should be stored on top of the graphic, as it may bend, increasing the chances for rippling once the graphic is applied. For graphics which have already been installed, it’s important not to slide anything over the top of the graphic and to avoid turns or stop and starting of wheeled vehicles, as doing so may cause damage to the graphic and decrease its estimated lifespan.
