A window decal is a sticker with a design that can be installed into the window, which will be just like printed paper, but that sticks and advertises whatever you want.
However, once the adhesive kicks in, it is tough to adjust. If the see-through vinyl window sticker is used, it's hard to see from a far distance by the people on the outside. If you use opaque, it blocks the natural light and view. Not as weather-resistant as the option (below).
The major advantage is that the bypasser or potential customer will see the advertisement but won't be able to peep into your office or business area. It can also be seen quickly from far-off distances without any trouble. Lite film decals are also a unique offering since they "light up" by glowing in the evening. This vinyl window film (see also
) lasts a long time and is weather resistant.
Since the perforated vinyl window film is a specially processed sheet of paper, it costs more than a simple window decal. The other fault of using this so you can see from inside is that it blocks the natural light considerably coming from outside.
Both sets of window vinyl are good for a cause which means that the selection depends upon your requirement and budget. If you can afford a good amount of advertising while requiring seeing outside, you can use the perforated vinyl. However, if your window doesn't need a view, you can use the simple window decal. The ultimate choice depends upon your requirement.
Perforated vinyl can last varying times depending on four key factors. But a general rule of thumb is 1-2 years
If the proper steps are followed on installation, you should expect the lifespan of a perforated vinyl is 1-2 years. Perforated vinyl is designed for mid to longer-term signage and should be replaced every 2-3 years at most.
