Window stickers are great at creating awareness of your message or brand and are widely used by web-based accreditation or comparison sites, business branding, restaurant and hotel guides, as well as by retail outlets for use in their Point of Sale and sales promotions.
Here are some examples of uses:
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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!
Download our Artwork Guidelines to ensure your custom stickers are produced exactly as expected.
Artwork is uploaded during the ordering process, however If you have any questions regarding your designs or would like us to check your artwork, prior to ordering, please contact us on 01347 823 230 or email your artwork to email@example.com
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.
