Die-Cut Window Decals: Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Is a decal the same as a sticker?


A decal is a specific type of sticker. While a sticker is a more generic term that can refer to anything from novelty adhesives, labels, stamps, etc., a decal is an adhesive design that can be transferred from one surface to another. A sticker usually has two layers — a decorative layer with an adhesive backing supporting a design on the front and a layer of paper on the back that is peeled off to apply the sticker. On the other hand, decals mostly have three layers — a layer of paper on the back and one on the front with the decal in between.

Q. What is a die-cut decal?


A die-cut decal is a type of sticker that is cut straight through the vinyl and paper backing and fits the exact shape of a design. This ensures no extra blank space around the decal, and the surface underneath or above is visible through the gaps.

Q. How are die-cut decals different from kiss-cut decals?


Die-cut decals are cut to the exact shape of the design, while kiss-cut decals usually have a square backing around the design. Die-cut decals offer a cleaner look and are therefore more popular.

Q. What are the benefits of using die-cut window decals?


Devoid of any blank space where the design is not printed, a die-cut window decal allows two-way visibility with designs that do not cover the entire decal surface. Available in different colors and sizes, these decals are easy to install and exude subtle elegance. You can even customize a die-cut window decal and get one that perfectly matches your preferences. Our die-cut window decals can be used both indoors and outdoors and are resistant to moisture, solvents, chemicals, abrasion, and fading.

Q. What can window decals be used for?


Window decals are great for storefronts that can display their business hours, discounts and promotions, etc., on their windows and doors to attract customers. Offices may also use these to display their logos, competencies, values, etc. Die-cut labels also work well as communication tools to make requests like keeping a door closed and to convey restrictions like authorized personnel only. You may even use these as washroom identifiers, policy communicators, and more.
