Vinyl Lettering vs Clear Window Decals


While both of these look great on a window, it is important to understand the differences between the two to ensure that you choose the solution that is right for you.

Clear Window Decals

Clear window decals are signs with the design printed directly onto a sheet of clear material called Window Deco. Since the design is printed onto the clear material as a whole, each individual letter or image is not required to be installed to the window separately.

As there is a clear material attached to the sign, this type of signage is known as “optically clear” meaning that the clear material isn’t visible unless you’re up close to the sign.

Clear window decals can be used both on the inside and outside of the window and has an approximate lifespan of around three years,

Vinyl Lettering

Vinyl Lettering vs Clear Window Decals

Whilst seemingly very similar in appearance, vinyl lettering has a much different production process. Unlike with window decals, vinyl lettering is only available in certain colours due to how its made.

Similarly to clear window decals, vinyl lettering can be installed both inside and outside.

Depending on the placement and climate, vinyl lettering will last between eight and ten years.
