Window Decals vs. Perforated Window Film And What You Should Know

Old school marketing methods are in fashion again, rather never went out of fashion. You will always see large hoardings on highways advertising a particular product or service. In a similar manner, window cling vinyl advertisement never goes out of fashion. These window cling vinyl can be pasted on the inside of the see-through window or even outside if the weather permits. They effectively promote your business to your current clients moving in and out of the building and potential customers walking on the outside and we allow you to use customized graphics for both options. There is a variety of window vinyl that you can use as a promotional banner for your business. Every set of vinyl window stickers has its own merits and demerits. To select one, you will need to know the advantages and disadvantages of the particular type of vinyl window stickers. The two primary kinds of consideration along with their merits and demerits are explained in the post for you to select the right set of the vinyl window sticker.

Window Decals

window decal is a sticker with a design on it that can be installed into the window which will be just like a printed paper, but that sticks and advertises whatever you want.


They are semi-permanent in nature and can be changed whenever required. They come in two options by which they can be installed on the inside or the outside of the building. It also has the possibility of clear window vinyl which enables view from both sides of the window. The other option is opaque which is slightly see-through.


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 faraway distance by the people on the outside. If you use opaque, it blocks the natural light and view as well. Not as weather-resistant as the option (below).

Perforated vinyl window film

Perforated Window Signs Perforated Window Signs

Perforated vinyl window film  AKA perforated window decals form the vinyl window sticker that allows one-way visibility either from inside or outside but not both once they are installed, making them ideal window signage. Perforated window signs can be custom designed according to your need, and the color combination can even help you in maintaining the amount of vision you want to perforate. Our custom perforated window decals are among our most popular items among customers since they are affordable and are perfect for outside, front-facing businesses. These see-through window signs/stickers should be applied in the side of the window in which it is meant to be seen. If you want people outside to see the graphic, then put the sticker on the outside. Likewise, if you want people on the inside to see it, then put it on the inside.


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 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.

Final word

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 on 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.

    Thanks for the information on window decals. I would like to make sure that my branding is consistent throughout the store. I'll start looking for custom decals.

      Thanks For Sharing Such a nice blog with us. I like how Opaque Window Decals comes with great blackout coverage as the material is white by default. This means that there is no part of the Decal printing that will be clear or transparent, so if you need that feature Clear Window Decals and Clear Window Clings offer that exact feature.
