What Are Clear Window Decals?
A clear window decal is an image or graphic that is printed directly onto a sheet of transparent 4 mil vinyl material. These decals are transparent anywhere that does not contain your design, allowing you to display your logo or message on your window, glass door, or storefront without entirely obstructing your view.
Clear vinyl window decals are intended for both indoor and outdoor use. The ideal surface they are meant to be used on is glass, but may also be used on electronic equipment, refrigerators, aluminum, stainless steel, plastics, or laminated surfaces. These decals are commonly used for business/storefront advertising, retail locations, displaying store hours, window decor, product promotion, window signage, and office branding.
Clear Window Decals vs Vinyl Lettering
Clear Window Decals
Clear window decals can have a very similar appearance to vinyl lettering when applied. However, they are entirely different products. With vinyl lettering, your design is cut to shape from a solid-colored sheet of vinyl instead of being printed. With clear window decals, your design is printed onto a sheet of transparent vinyl, allowing you to use a wide variety of colors, gradients, etc.
Advanced White-Ink Printing Method
A two-step printing process is used when creating your custom transparent window decal. This involves printing a layer of white ink followed by a layer of colored ink. This “spot white ink” is only printed where your design is printed to add contrast and vibrancy to your design while retaining the overall transparency of the decal.
Please note that your decal will only be transparent in areas that do not include your design. Knowing this, we recommend using files that contain a transparent background when uploading your design. Need design help? Learn about our free design services.

Simple Installation with No Professional Help Required
The following installation instructions will help you with a quick and easy installation of your custom clear window decal. Instructions will also be included with your order, and you are free to refer to this page, download a PDF of the instructions, or view our instructional video 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 clear 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.
Lay your transparent window decal on a flat, smooth surface and begin to remove the black liner. The backing is a frosted, semi-transparent material that can be difficult to remove due to its thin properties. If you are having difficulty, try applying a small piece of tape to the corner of the backing and use that to help you peel it away from the decal.
You can now apply your clear 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.
Although we recommend using soapy water to help install your decal, don’t allow it to become exposed to water or excessive moisture for an extended period of time before installing. You may wash the window that has the decal applied, but do not power wash your decal after it is installed. When cleaning the decal we recommend using a damp, non-abrasive cloth. This decal may be removed and re-positioned several times. Remove by peeling the decal away from the window and reapplying in the same method as described above.
