What are Window Decals?

Window decals (also referred to as window stickers or window graphics) are images, graphics, or lettering printed onto or cut out of self-adhesive vinyl material and then placed on any type of window or glass surface. Window decals include vinyl lettering, clear window decals, opaque window decals, perforated window decals, and frosted window decals. Each type of decal is durable and is designed to withstand rain, sunshine, and other weather.

Common Uses: For indoor and outdoor use on windows, storefronts, glass doors, mirrors, or any other smooth glass surface. They are mainly used by businesses, offices, restaurants, and other stores to display store hours, business names, logos, products, sales, advertisements and contact information. They may also be used to show off your favorite logo, team, band, etc.

Installation: Most of our window decals are very easy to install, which can be completed yourself within a matter of minutes. You can find step-by-step installation instructions for each window decal on its respective product page. Select “Learn More” on one of the products listed above to see the product-specific installation instructions.

Care: Regularly wash your window decal with a damp, non-abrasive rag. This will remove dirt and grime from the decal and help maintain its quality and lifespan. Avoid using power washers on windows your window decal is placed on. With proper care, these decals are able to last several years.

Window Clings

Window Clings

Window Clings use a suction functionality (rather than traditional adhesive) to adhere to surfaces. This allows them to be easily removable and reusable, giving you the ability to apply and remove your graphic whenever you need to.

Frequently Asked Questions

Product Specs
  • Why should I choose window decals?
  • Window decals are an extremely popular and versatile signage solution for big and small businesses alike. Our custom window decals are semi-permanent and come with an adhesive backing. Decals offer an easy to install and effective signage option for businesses and homeowners.
  • In general, what else should I know about decals?
  • Our custom window decals are made from a poly vinyl material with an adhesive backing. These decals are easily installed on homes, store fronts and any glass surface in business settings or otherwise. They are semi-permanent in that they can be removed but are a one-time use so they cannot be reused once applied. After installation our window decals can last 3+ years inside or outside with proper care and maintenance. There are five main types of decals: vinyl lettering, clear window decal, opaque window decal, perforated window decal, and frosted window decal. These differences are described briefly below and more in depth on the respective product page links above.
  • What should I know about the five different types of decals offered by Signs.com?
  • All five decal types are a signage option that come with an adhesive backing and are designed for windows. The two primary differences are the transparency offered by each one and where you are able to put them. In terms of transparency, clear window decals are just as they sound and will be see through wherever they are not printed. Likewise, opaque window decals are just as they sound and are opaque due to being printed on a material that is by default opaque. Thus, the opaque decals offer no see-through visibility even if you were to order a blank piece of material. Perforated window decals offer a combination of the two as the material has a 50:50 ratio of perforated holes to solid material. Thus, perforated decals offer a one way visibility that is great for storefronts who wish to advertise their business but retain the ability to see out of the windows. Vinyl lettering is composed of individual letters and numbers cut from a piece of solid-colored vinyl, thus having no background. Frosted window decals have a translucent background, meaning you are able to see light and outlines of objects through them while they still maintain a level of opacity. Due to the material they are printed on, only vinyl lettering, clear decals and frosted decals can be placed on the inside of the window facing out. This is advantageous to keep the decal out of harsh climates or even those who might deface or damage the decal when placed on the exterior of a window. Opaque and perforated window decals, due to their material, are not able to placed on the inside and face out. When placing your decal on the inside of the window with the printed portion facing out it is referred to as “inside glass”. This option is available on our design tool when designing your custom decal. A full overview of these differences can be found here: window signage options.
  • How do window decals differ from wall decals? What about static clings?
  • Window decals are not the same thing as wall decals or static clings. While window and wall decals are both made from an adhesive vinyl, the former is a semi-permanent solution that is not able to be repositioned once the backing has kicked in (aside from clear window decals, which are reusable and repositionable). Wall decals on the other hand are designed to be repositioned on a regular basis and use a low-tack adhesive to accomplish this. Wall decals are typically used on interior walls despite the ability to be used elsewhere. Clings on the other hand do not use an adhesive backing at all but suction to “cling” to a window. One simply has to press firmly to apply the cling and remove any air bubbles. Like a wall decal, a cling can be removed, repositioned and applied countless times assuming that the mounting surface and sign itself are clean and dry.
  • Does it matter what type of decal I choose?
  • Yes! Depending on what type of visibility/transparency you want, where you want it placed and what the end purpose of your sign is, it matters a great deal what type of window decal you choose. You can refer to the "All Window Decals" section on this page to decide which one you need.
  • Are the decals repositionable?
  • The only window decal that is repositionable is the clear window decal. Vinyl lettering, opaque decals, perforated decals and frosted decals are not repositionable. While there is some wiggle room and forgiveness when they are initially installed, once the adhesive backing becomes active it is not possible to reposition your decal. If you need something that needs regular repositioning we recommend static clings.
  • Are window decals the same thing as “window stickers” or “window graphics”?
  • The term “window sticker” is generally not used within the signage industry while “window graphic” is used fairly often. By far the most common phrase is simply “window decal” or “decal”. Nonetheless, if you are simply referring to a sign that uses an adhesive backing for glass surfaces then we’re on the same page!
  • Do I need to design them differently based on the type of window decal I choose?
  • Yes and no. Technically even on a clear decal that offers less contrast than an opaque or perforated decal we will use what is called a “flood white” technique when printing. This just means that behind your design there will be a white print to ensure that the colors in your design remain vibrant. This will not be visible on your sign but simply ensures the printed portion is clear and crisp since it is printed on a clear material. Regardless of the type of decal you choose, you should keep basic design best practices in mind. For example, limit the amount of text you put on your sign, use colors that have high contrast - especially if the window is tinted or the sign needs to be seen from a distance -, make sure your sign design and size is big enough to be seen from a distance if needed, etc. If you are unsure about how well your decal is going to work contact us for help or fill out our form for free design services.
  • Are the decals easy to install? What about extra large decals?
  • Installation instructions are found on each respective product page but generally follow the same guidelines. When installing your decals, clean the window from any grime or dirt and let it dry before installing. After doing so, for decals using a wet install (clear window decal, opaque window decal, frosnted window decal) use water with one or two drops of a mild detergent to spray the back side of the decal after removing the backing. Water of any type should not be used on perforated decals or vinyl lettering. After it is wet, place the decal on the dry window surface and use a squeegee to remove any excess water. Once the water dries, the adhesive will kick in. Large decals will require more than one person to properly install. Do not let the adhesive side of the decal, wet or not, touch or attach to other parts of the adhesive backing. For this reason multiple people are recommended for the installation of large decals.
  • Are the decals difficult to remove? Will they ruin my windows?
  • Generally speaking the decals are easy to remove. In most cases the decals can simply be peeled away from the window. Usually a razor blade and window cleaner will be needed to remove any residual adhesive material. For decals that are extremely difficult to take off the window, a flat edge, such as a squeegee, can help facilitate the peeling away of the decal.
