Size Guidelines

We make your bespoke order to virtually any size, quantity or shape. They can be produced up to 1500mm in width and to any length.

Custom window sticker printing in pantone colour matched, CYMK full colour, or metallic inks

These are carefully printed onto transparent self adhesive vinyl, with a peel off backing paper. They are designed to stick to the inside of a glass window surface, to be viewed from the outside. It would appear that the artwork is printed on the ‘sticky’ side, but in reality, this isn’t the case.

Once your artwork has hit our production line it is mirror printed backwards onto the non sticky surface side of a clear self adhesive sheet. Next, a solid white or background colour is laid all across the back of the design. Once the item is trimmed to its finished size or shape, it is ready to use. Once peeled off it’s backing paper, the colourful design is revealed. The artwork is seen through the adhesive and the clear film of pvc. The print is actually on the other side of the sticker, but is seen clearly since it was printed onto transparent vinyl.

Backing paper print

Not only can the self-adhesive vinyl display your design, but we also offer you the option to print onto the backing paper.

This can be used to provide more information, or to further enhance your promotion, such as a discount voucher or a sponsorship opportunity.

White backing

Window decals are reverse-printed onto a transparent vinyl. Whilst we do not have to add a white backing we do strongly recommend adding a solid white underlay so the image appears strong, without becoming translucent.

We can also personalise your job with a custom shaped backing if required (again please call or email us to discuss these options).

Making the cut – size and shape options

Our machines can cut to just about any size or shape. Although most vinyl stickers are guillotined to rectangular or square shapes, we offer a variety of ways of giving you the choice of custom shapes. As you expect from one of the UK’s leading sticker companies, we have a full range of guillotining, die cutting, forme cutting and cad cutting equipment. It’s this array of the best print finishing equipment that enables us to produce high quality sticker in any colour, size, shape or quantity that you wish.

How are custom window stickers made?

Not all window stickers are actually ‘stickers’, as some of them work without any adhesive, but nevertheless the printing process is the same regardless of which type of material is used.

So first of all, let’s see how the printing part works…

Although you’d probably imagine that the plastic is printed, and then the ‘sticky’ is coated onto the print, it doesn’t actually work like that. Window stickers start life as a clear plastic film, (with or without an adhesive layer). The clear plastic film comes already with a paper or thin card backing paper. If it is a true ‘sticker’, the glue holds the backing paper in position. If it’s a self-cling sticker, the film ‘clings’ to the shiny backing paper on its own.

On to the exposed side of the clear film, the artwork is printed in reverse, mirror -image, wrong-reading, or however you want to describe it. Over this reverse printed artwork, a solid, usually white, solid layer of ink is printed, trapping the artwork print underneath it. So, when the sticker is peeled off it’s backing, the print is revealed.

What you’re actually looking at is the print, through the thickness of the clear film, and through the clear glue..(in the case of a ‘sticker’) Clever, but very simple! As you’ll see, the printing part of the process has nothing to do with the actual type of ‘sticker’ you would like to produce. Care needs to be taken to work out how ‘sticky’ the customer would like the sticker to be, or how long they want it to remain on the window.

At this point the correct choice of material is necessary. If the window sticker is a temporary or promotional graphic, that only needs to remain in place few a matter of days or weeks, then a static ‘self cling’ pvc might be the material of choice. This is a soft, shiny highly plasticised clear film that sticks to the window without any glue or adhesive. The great advantage of this material is that it can be easily removed without leaving any mess behind on the glass. It’s also easy to apply, as you can simply have another go, if you get it wrong the first time!

If the sticker or graphic needs to remain in place for a longer spell, but you’d still like it to come off later, then you might choose a clear self adhesive vinyl with a removable adhesive. This is basically a thin clear film with a thin coating of adhesive that holds it in place on the glass. It’s easy to peel off for the first part of it’s life, but does stick harder the longer you leave it in position!

For long term stickers and graphics, then a clear self adhesive vinyl with a permanent adhesive should be used.

Apart from the obvious advantages of a nice long useful lifespan, be careful putting these type of stickers on…you only get one chance, and it’s very easy to get air bubbles trapped underneath, that will look terrible for ever more!

Orders can be split over multiple designs as long as the dimensions of each design is the same.

For example, if you require 1000 stickers, split between a blue design and a red design, then you will select 2 from the Number of Designs option (use the option “Do you want you sticker order split over multiple designs?”) from the custom stickers order page.

This will allow you to maximise your quantity discount and avoid paying twice our minimum order charge.

By default we will split your order evenly over the number of designs (e.g. for 2 designs over 1000 stickers we will print each design 500 times). However, if you wish for us to split the sticker unevenly then please let us know by entering comments in the comment field during the order process.

A Step-by-Step Guide to Applying Window Stickers

Applying window stickers can be a breeze with the right guidance. In this step-by-step guide, we’ll walk you through the process of applying window stickers like a pro.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Before you begin, make sure you have everything you need:

  • Window sticker
  • Glass cleaner or mild detergent
  • Lint-free cloth or paper towels
  • Masking tape or painter’s tape
  • Squeegee or credit card
  • Scissors (if needed)

Step 2: Prepare the Surface

Ensure the window surface is clean and dry. Use glass cleaner or mild detergent to remove any dirt, dust, or grease. Wipe the surface with a lint-free cloth or paper towels to ensure it’s completely dry. This step is crucial for ensuring a smooth application and long-lasting adhesion.

Step 3: Position the Sticker

Carefully position the sticker on the window using masking tape or painter’s tape to hold it in place. Take your time to ensure it’s aligned correctly and where you want it to be. You can use a level to ensure the sticker is straight if needed.

Step 4: Apply the Sticker

Starting from one corner, slowly peel off the backing paper from the sticker. Use a squeegee or credit card to smooth out the sticker onto the window surface, working from the center outwards. Apply firm and even pressure to ensure there are no air bubbles or wrinkles.

Step 5: Final Touches

Inspect the sticker for any air bubbles or imperfections. If you notice any, use a pin or needle to puncture the bubble and then smooth it out with your finger or the squeegee. Take a step back and admire your handiwork!

Step 6: Let It Set

Allow the sticker to set and bond to the window surface for at least 24 hours before exposing it to any moisture or extreme temperatures. This will ensure maximum adhesion and longevity.

Step 7: Enjoy!

Once the sticker has fully set, stand back and enjoy the new addition to your window! Whether it’s a decorative design, business logo, or promotional message, your window sticker is sure to make a statement.


Applying window stickers doesn’t have to be daunting. With the right tools and technique, you can achieve professional-looking results every time. Follow these simple steps, and soon you’ll be a master at applying window stickers like a pro!

Time for a change? Removing your old window stickers so you can apply the new stickers can be a hassle-free process with the right approach. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to safely and effectively remove window stickers without damaging your windows.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Before you start, gather the following supplies:

  • Hairdryer or heat gun
  • Razor blade or plastic scraper
  • Glass cleaner or mild detergent
  • Lint-free cloth or paper towels

Step 2: Apply Heat

Use a hairdryer or heat gun to gently warm the window sticker. Hold the heat source a few inches away from the sticker and move it back and forth in a sweeping motion. The heat will soften the adhesive, making it easier to peel off the sticker.

Step 3: Peel Off the Sticker

Once the adhesive is warmed up, use your fingers or a razor blade/plastic scraper to gently lift the edge of the sticker. Slowly peel the sticker away from the window, taking care not to tear it or leave residue behind.

Step 4: Remove Residue

If any adhesive residue remains on the window after removing the sticker, dampen a cloth with glass cleaner or mild detergent. Gently rub the residue in circular motions until it loosens and comes off the window. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials, as they can damage the glass.

Step 5: Clean the Window

After removing the sticker and adhesive residue, clean the window thoroughly with glass cleaner or mild detergent. Wipe the window surface with a lint-free cloth or paper towels to ensure it’s dry and free of any remaining residue.

Step 6: Final Touches

Inspect the window to ensure all sticker remnants and adhesive residue have been removed. If you notice any stubborn residue, repeat the cleaning process or use a commercial adhesive remover if necessary. Once the window is clean, step back and admire the spotless surface!

Removing window stickers can be a straightforward task with the right tools and technique. By following these simple steps, you can safely and effectively remove window stickers without leaving behind any damage or residue.

When applying stickers, whether they go on the inside or outside of the glass depends on various factors, including the type of sticker (window sticker or vinyl sticker) and its purpose.

  1. Inside Placement (window stickers – the adhesive is on the same side as the image):
    • Clear Visibility: Window stickers placed on the inside are shielded from weather elements and tend to have a longer lifespan. This placement is ideal for stickers meant to be viewed from the outside, such as business hours, promotions, or decorative designs.
    • Interior Protection: Placing window stickers inside safeguards them from outdoor elements like rain, wind, and UV rays, preserving their appearance over time.
  2. Outside placement (vinyl stickers – the adhesive is on the back of the image):
    • Exterior Visibility: Vinyl stickers placed on the outside of the glass window, ensure visibility from a distance, making them suitable for storefront advertisements or directional signs. This placement maximizes their visibility to passersby.
    • Weather Resistance: While exterior placement exposes vinyl stickers to weather conditions, high-quality outdoor-grade vinyl stickers are designed to withstand elements like rain, sunlight, and wind for long-lasting durability.

Consider these factors carefully when choosing between window stickers for inside placement and vinyl stickers for outside placement to achieve the desired impact and longevity.
