Die Cut Decals VS. Kiss Cut Decals

The main differences between these two cut options, comes down to the paper backing on each decal.

For a more elaborate explanation, please visit our helpful blog article Die-cut vs Kiss-cut: A Simple Guide.

Die-Cut Sticker

Die-Cut

Die-cut means that we are cutting through both the vinyl decal material and the paper backing. This cut type doesn't leave any material around the decal. Another way to look at it is to think of it like a "cookie cutter." Your decals are all individually cut out to the contour of your design, so you have individually cut stickers with no paper material around the design.

* Please note, back slit (crack and peel) is only available on stickers 3" x 3" up to 12" x 12". *

If selected on sizes larger than 12" x 12" your decals will not be backslit

Kiss-Cut Sticker

Kiss-Cut

Kiss-cut means we are only cutting through the vinyl layer ("decalmaterial") and not cutting through the paper backing, leaving a paper material border around your sticker. When you choose a kiss-cut decal, you will have extra material around your decal for easy peeling.

Clear Window Decal Artwork Specification

Preferred Files for Printing

Clear Decal & Window Cling Guidelines

  • Vector artwork is required: EPS and PDF
  • Please indicate the cut line clearly for all decal products

When submitting these files, make sure you convert all fonts to outlines or curves to ensure they print correctly and the fonts are not substituted. 

File Tips

  • Set up size proportionate to the exact size product you are ordering 
  • Convert all text to outlines 
  • Only Allow for bleed if necessary
  • Never flatten/merge layers in a PSD file
  • Indicate the cut line clearly for all decal products

Vector Art

Vector art consists of lines and curves that are mathematically defined objects. When viewing art in key line mode you can see the points or vectors when connecting your lines and curves. They can also be seen when using the pen tool or editing the points along a path. Vector art is ideal for type and drawn shapes because they can be enlarged to any size while maintaining crisp outlines and details without sacrificing quality. The distance between the vectors is calculated mathematically and is not dependent upon resolution. 

Raster Art

Raster images consist of colored squares, called pixels. They are created by combining a series of various colored pixels. Digital photographs are made up of pixels. If you view a raster image at 200% or more you are able to see the individual pixels that make up the image. Raster images are dependent upon resolution so image enlargement is limited by the individual size at which the file was created. If a file is produced at a size that is larger than its resolution will allow, the quality will decrease. Printing a low resolution file will result in pixelation. Individual pixels are large enough to be easily discernable. Increasing the resolution will not solve this problem is there are not enough pixels to begin with. The program will add more pixels based upon the estimation of their location and will then assign their neighboring pixels's color value. This may cause an image to look muddy. 

If submitting these files, please follow the guidelines below:

  • 100% scale (full size output) at 100 dpi
  • 50% scale at 200 dpi or higher
  • 25% scale at 300 dpi or higher
  • 10% scale at 600-1200 dpi recommended

Design Services

If you are not able to provide us with a print ready artwork, we do have a vectorizing/recreating service available. Most logos or images can be recreated for $70. Artwork design service discounts may apply.  Please contact a sales representative today for more details.

This service needs to be paid for in advance and we will be happy to give you a copy of the vector file once it is complete.

Step 2:

Clean the Surface

The first order of business before you apply your clear label is to make sure the surface is clean and dry. Any dirt or debris can weaken the adhesion. Use warm water and soap, rubbing alcohol, or other common household items for a good clean. Be sure to wipe away any left-over cleaning product or residue with a dry cloth before moving on to the next step.

Frequently Asked Questions Return to Top

Product Information

What material is used for your custom clear decals?

We print our clear decals on a 4 millimeter transparent vinyl material designed for both interior and exterior applications. This unique material comes with the option to choose either a front adhesive or back adhesive, giving you more control over how you want to apply this decal to your window or other intended surfaces.

How do I know where my decal will be clear?

Your decal will show clear on any area(s) your graphic isn’t showing. So the portion of your graphic that will remain clear largely depends on what you are printing. If you are designing a clear decal in our online designer it is recommended to also let us know specifically where you are wanting your decal to appear transparent in the order notes. 

If you are uploading your own design, we recommend either an ai, eps, or pdf file format for this particular product. We also recommend you leave instructions in your order notes as this can help clear up any confusion for our graphic designers when processing your orders.  As with all our products, your order will not be processed until you have approved your artwork and paid for your product.

When should I use a clear decal instead of a window cling?

The biggest difference between the two products is the adhesive strength and the intended use. If you are looking for a more permanent option when it comes to your clear decal, we suggest choosing our clear decal product. This is due to the adhesive that is placed on the vinyl decal material itself.  

If you are looking for a temporary decal option, we suggest you order our window cling product. This is due to the low tack adhesive placed on the decal, allowing you easier removal and repositioning of the decal.

Can I place my clear decal on the inside of my window and have it be visible on the outside?

Yes, we offer both back adhesive and front adhesive options for your clear decals. If you would like to place your clear decal on the inside of your window and have the graphic visible to passersby on the outside please select the ‘Front Adhesive’ product option. This is possible with our clear window clings product as well.

How small or large can my clear decals be?

Our clear decals can be printed as small as 2” high x 2” wide and as large as 52” high and 120” wide. You can also create larger displays by combining multiple decal panels together.

Can I use multiple colors, fonts, and images in my design?

Yes! Because we digitally print our clear decals in full color you will not be charged anything additional for multiple colors, fonts, or imagery. 

The only time color will affect your price is if you request a color match proof. If you need a color match proof, please contact us to speak with one of our friendly customer service reps!

What is the lifespan of your clear decals?

Our clear decals have a 3 plus year lifespan when properly installed and cared for.

Are clear decals easily removable or repositionable?

No, clear decals are intended to be a permanent clear decal option. We do not suggest trying to remove and reapplying your clear decal once it has been set in place. 

If you are looking for a removable or repositionable clear decal option, we would suggest checking out our clear window cling product. Window clings use a low tack adhesive technology that allows you to apply, remove, and reposition multiple times.

Will clear decals ruin my windows or any other surfaces I place them on?

No, as long as you apply and remove your decal properly you should not see any damage to your windows or whatever surface you place your clear decal on. If you do end up with some sticky residue left behind, we recommend using a light cleaning solution to remove it.

Common Uses

What are some common uses for clear decals?

Clear decals are the perfect decal option for a variety of uses. They are most commonly used as window decals for business storefronts or vehicles, to display sales, business hours, or information, and for seasonal promotions such as Christmas, New Years, Halloween, Easter, etc.  

Another common use for them is for branding or labeling products. If you are looking for a unique label to be placed on a glass jar, clear decals are a great option to allow your product to show through this transparent decal, while still displaying your logo and product information.

What surfaces can clear decals be placed on?

Clear decals can be placed on any indoor or outdoor smooth, non-porous surfaces such as glass, stainless steel, aluminum, and plastic.

Can clear decals be used outdoors?

Yes, because we print our clear decals with a UV resistant ink and then place a laminate over the top, your decals will be able to withstand harsh outdoor weather conditions. This laminate helps to protect your decals from UV light, moisture, and scratches.
