Window stickers Technologies to meet any requirement

Window stickers

Window stickers are designed to be applied to the inside of a window to highlight a sales message, attract attention or otherwise deliver information. They are widely used in the retail environment, particularly grocery / supermarkets and fashion / clothing, and by car dealerships, but have applications across all sectors of business.

Our ‘all under one roof’ approach means we have the choice of technologies to meet any requirement, quickly accurately and cost effectively. For small run jobs, we will print stickers digitally in 4 colour process and backed up white. For longer run jobs – or if specific Pantone colours are required – we can screen print the stickers.

Window stickers can be produced on a wide range of specialist materials including frosted window film, vinyl lettering, full-colour window wrap, dusted window film, and metallic window film.

What is a window sticker?

So what defines a window sticker and how does it differ from a window cling?

The key difference between a window sticker and a ‘standard’ sticker is that a window sticker has the image printed on the ‘sticky side’. In other words it is reverse printed, whereas a sticker will have adhesive on the back. Window stickers are almost always white-backed to ensure the colours are vibrant and opaque.

It will also have an adhesive on the face, unlike window clings, which adhere through static. This makes window stickers a stronger and more lasting display material than a cling.

Permanent and repositionable window stickers

There are two kinds of window sticker and the difference lies in the type of adhesive used:

  • Permanent adhesive window stickers are, as the name suggests, designed for long term use. Once they’re up, they’re going to stay there.
  • The alternative to this is the semi-permanent or removable window sticker. These use 3x less bond than permanent window stickers, allowing them to be removed and / or repositioned after installation. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that this adhesive will become permanent if left for a considerable time.

Installing window stickers

Window stickers can be used on any type of glass or window including car windows, shop windows, glass doors and glass cabinets. The only requirement is that the window needs to be clean and free from grease, dirt or dust. Best practice is to first wipe the surface using a high alcohol cleaning solution like isopropyl. 

Typical applications include:

  • Retail store windows
  • Brand promotions
  • Car windows
  • Car showrooms
  • Kitchen / bathroom showrooms
  • DIY / trade centres
  • Office windows
  • Theatres
  • Museums and galleries
