    Turn heads and share key information with professionally designed custom window decals.

    Working in a storefront or office setting that features large windows, glass walls or counters? Make the most of that valuable real estate and promote in-store sales, special events or even your business hours with custom window decals. Inviting signage can entice passersby to stop in to see what your business is all about – and we’re ready to help with business window decal options for a variety of needs. Ready to start creating your window clings? First, choose your background material – transparent or an easy-to-read opaque. Next, decide on which side of the glass you’ll use: Our decals are available in both weather-proof inside-glass or eye-catching outside-glass. (See below to learn more.) Then explore our wide range of customizable full-color designs to find the one that’s right for you. Finally, when your window decals arrive, just peel them off and apply with our optional free squeegee. Your custom window clings will require next to no maintenance – in fact, the self-leveling film adhesive vinyl makes it easy to remove your decals without smudges or streaks.

    Application Surface: Inside- vs. Outside-Glass Options

    Which printing approach is right for your custom window decals? Here’s a primer on what each means.
    Outside window decals from Vistaprint

    Outside-Glass (First Surface)

    Decals cling on the back, with designs displayed on the glass surface. Designs are a bit brighter and easier to see from a distance.
    Inside window decals from Vistaprint

    Inside-Glass (Second Surface)

    Printed on the cling side, designs are seen through the glass surface. This protects the decal from weather and wear.

    Background Options: Clear vs. Opaque

    Trying to decide between clear or opaque window decals? Here are the benefits of each option.
    Applying Vistaprint window decals


    180-micron PET film. Clear custom window decals look like part of the glass, and they give people an unobstructed view into your shop or office.
    white window decal from Vistaprint


    150-micron PET film. Solid backgrounds make business window decals easier to read. Plus, you’re not limited to opaque – you can add the color of your choice.

    Application Guide

    With these four steps, you can easily get your custom window decals set up and ready to go. (Pro tip: If you’re working with a larger decal, have someone on standby to help.)

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Do you offer custom sizes and shapes for business window decals?
    A: Not at this time.

    Q: Are inside-glass and second surface the same thing?
    A: Yes. Inside-glass decals are also known as second surface custom window decals. Similarly, outside-glass decals are sometimes referred to as first surface decals.

    Q: How can I avoid bubbles when I apply my custom window decals?
    A: We recommend the “wet application method,” which we’ve outlined in the application guide above, as well as in these downloadable instructions.

    Q: Can I reposition custom window decals?
    A: Yes. To reposition your decal, just peel it off the glass and follow the steps outlined in our application guide above. Works best with our cling option.

    Q: Will these custom window decals work on non-glass surfaces?
    A: We don’t recommend it. Our window decals are designed for use on flat glass.

    Q: Can I use business window decals at different events?
    A: We don’t recommend doing so. While our custom window decals can be repositioned easily, transporting and storing them for events can lead to dust and debris, which causes bubbling.

    Q: What are custom window decals made of?
    A: Cling decals are made of 8 ml adhesive-free static PVC film, adhesive vinyl from 4 ml flexible vinyl, and perforated decals are made of 7.1 ml vinyl with 1.50 mm diameter holes.

    Q: Do you recommend a specific application temperature range?
    A: Yes. For the cling option, we recommend that the temperature is -10 F to 150 F. -40 F to 225 F for the adhesive vinyl. And -4F – 248F for the perforated. Application outside of the recommended range, decals won’t perform as well.
