Considerations for Window Decals

So you’re thinking about window signs for your business. You must have some idea of what you’re trying to achieve and now you need to figure out what type of decal would best suite your needs. There are many aspects to consider when you’re creating window signage for your business. There are a variety of window display products, including perforated decals, opaque window decals, opaque window clings, clear window decals, clear window clings, and frosted window decals.

There are best practices for designing a readable and inviting window sign. These design considerations are important to keep in mind, regardless of what type of window graphic you choose to order.

Static window cling options are the best choice for temporary window signage such as sales, promotions, or events. They are repositionable and reusable because they adhere using suction, much like plastic wrap. Static clings are best used indoors and can stick to any glass surface. They do not stick well to drywall, wood, etc. Static cling decals are offered in clear and opaque options, so you can be sure to get exactly what you need.

Decals are best used as a more permanent solution. They adhere to the window using an adhesive. Once placed on a window or a door, the decal is removable, but not reusable. Because of their durability, decals can be used indoors or outdoors. With proper care and maintenance, they can be in place for three or more years.

Perforated decals create a statement on any window. They appear opaque from the outside but allow you to see through them from the inside. These are commonly called or referred to as one-way signs or window graphics.  Perforated decals have specially designed micro punctures on over 50% of the film and are created for outdoor use. Perforated decals last three or more years with proper care and placement.

Frosted decals bridge the gap between clear and opaque window decals. Frosted decals are made using an etched glass adhesive. They are not completely clear or completely opaque, but allow light and shadow through, offering privacy and light. Frosted decals lasted up to 5 years with proper care and placement.
