What Are Opaque Window Decals?
Opaque window decals are adhesive decals that you can place on any window, glass door or other smooth surface. These semi-permanent decals can be printed at nearly any size and do not need professional assistance for installation. Opaque window decals will last indoors and outdoors for years with proper care, yet are easily removed when you’re ready for a new look.
Opaque window decals work wonderfully for posting store hours or advertising a logo or brand in a window. All window decals can be cut to the exact outline of the design by selecting custom from the shape options. You can also choose to have a border around the outline of your design by selecting custom with border in the shape options. What ever you choose, your opaque window decal will look great!

Simple Installation with No Professional Help Required
The following installation instructions will help you with a quick and easy installation of your custom opaque window decal. You will recieve instructions with your order. You can also refer to this page or download a PDF of the instructions for assistance. If you are installing a large decal we recommend having at least one other person assist you.
Before you begin to install your custom opaque window decal, we recommend gathering the following supplies to help with the process:
- Spray bottle
- Paper Towels
- Application Squeegee (available for purchase with order)
- Window Squeegee
Begin by thoroughly cleaning the window or glass surface you intend to use for your decal. After cleaning, use a window squeegee to remove excess water or allow appropriate time for the window to air dry.
Create a decal application solution by combining 3 drops of dish soap or detergent (not hand soap) per 1 gallon of water and place into a spray bottle.
Begin to remove the back liner. The backing is a white material that can be difficult to remove due to its thinness. If you are having difficulty, try peeling a small corner away and use one hand to hold the backing against the window or surface while you slowly peel the rest of the decal away from the backing.
If your decal is larger than 16”x16” or if it has a custom shape, we recommend having at least two people help with this process to avoid tearing the decal or having the adhesive side stick to itself.
After removing the backing, generously apply the application solution to the back of the decal. Next, spray a generous amount of application solution to the desired surface, making sure both the adhesive side of the decal and the glass surface are now sufficiently wet. Do not submerge the decal into water in an attempt to soak the adhesive side.
You can now apply your opaque window decal to the desired window or glass surface. The application solution will allow the decal to slip and move once it is on the window. Use this to your advantage by sliding the decal into its final position.
Once the decal is in its final position, place the removed backing over the face of your decal and use the application squeegee to remove air bubbles/application solution from under the decal. When doing so, start in the center of the decal and press firmly to the right or left edge. Continue this process until you have run the squeegee over the entire surface of the decal.
Use paper towels to clean the glass surface and to remove excess water from the edges of the decal. It may take several days for the adhesive to fully dry and bind to the glass surface.
