Static Clings vs. Transfer Stickers

Static clings and transfer stickers both have their own unique benefits and choosing between them takes a bit of knowledge. Labelservice can help you decide but here’s some information to get you started.

Static clings are adhesive-free, reusable and completely customizable. A static cling is a thin vinyl sticker that sticks to a surface without any adhesive, instead using natural static to hold firmly in place. Static clings work best on smooth surfaces and can be easily applied and reapplied time and time again.

Static cling stickers are ideal for use on windows, metal and other smooth, non-porous surfaces. Great for branding, advertising and decoration, static clings work great for temporary use and are the perfect choice for seasonal decoration as they can be reused. Static clings adhere securely to windows, displaying whatever design your heart desires until you decide to take it down. As they don’t use any adhesive, static cling stickers won’t leave behind any marks or residue once you remove them.

Static cling stickers are recommended for indoor use but can be used outdoors temporarily in the right conditions. Static clings are not weatherproof and have certain temperature limits that can affect their adhesiveness. They apply best at room temperature, and have a service temperature of between 20°F and 220°F, meaning they might not adhere as well in temperatures outside this range.

Transfer stickers are durable, long-lasting and versatile. Transfer stickers are durable, long-lasting and versatile. Highly durable, transfer stickers can be used as glass stickers, or on metal and other smooth surfaces, like laminated doors or even paper. Transfer stickers are the perfect option for logos, names and complicated designs, as they’ll hold all elements of a design together to ensure precise placement.

On glass, clear transfer stickers are extremely durable and long-lasting, so they’re ideal for businesses and commercial windows, too. Transfer stickers use a strong adhesive to stay in place so may take some effort to remove from windows (and some soap and water to clean any remaining residue). Transfer stickers work well for outdoor use thanks to their durability and strong adhesive. Transfer stickers are weatherproof and fade-proof, as the vinyl is dyed rather than printed.
