Custom Static Window Clings

Custom static window clings are one of the most accessible forms of vinyl advertising. Most people have seen window clings passing through retail stores and malls and had no idea they are staring straight at a window cling film. Window clings appear like a standard custom decal with adhesive backing but allow for installation on glass, a mirror, or even acrylic signs without the sticky mess. Anytime you need the vinyl graphic to display without high or low tack adhesives, static window clings are a perfect solution.

More about Static Clings

Static Clings are flexible white vinyl that does not require adhesive on glass surfaces. They use the ambient moisture and static rather than a clear glue or adhesive like traditional stickers and "cling" rather than stick on surfaces, so they are relocatable and reusable.

However, window clings are limited to application locations compared to other vinyl signs since they can only correctly "cling" to the window depending on the environment. Therefore, it's best to stick with mounting indoors instead of outdoors, where rain and humidity may affect the lifespan.

It's prevalent to see window clings used for business hours, memberships, or essential branding by displaying the logo and business name. Additional static window clings use cases are listed below:

  • Retail sales promotions
  • Store hours and special holidays
  • Temporary signage
  • Directional signs
  • Corporate branding
  • Brand recognition
  • School parking passes

And more!

Displaying Options

Because traditional static cling material is white vinyl, the only option for installation is to install it from the outside of the glass or the face of a mirror. For widow clings that stick to the inside of glass, clear static clings are the "clear choice," pun intended.

Inside Mount

Businesses that swap out graphics for flash sales and promos may require the material to cling to the inside of storefronts glass to face outwards to potential new customers. Clear window clings have the print option to reverse print the designs and allow for the "cling" side of the material to adhere to the inside of the glass.
Whether the appearance of the design has clear or opaque, the transparent material has both flood white and spot white finish options. These options determine if the final look of the design appears to have some clear areas or if all solid colors are "flooded" out to allow your colors to stand out and pop off the transparent material.

Window Cling Film Cut Options

Cut options are a fantastic way to enhance the shape of the final design. Cut options are always optional and are not a requirement for any order. Some cut finish like oval and circle cuts have automated options where no additional art setup is required. At the same time, halo (contour cuts) cut options require an advanced artwork setup. Here's a link to our guide on setting up cut files.

Halo Cut

Halo cuts have also been known to be called contour cuts. The design style is entirely custom to the shape, with a border (in most cases white) around the outside of the vinyl's edge. Commonly used with the design is too completed for transfer decals.

Circle Cut

The circle cut options indicate the vinyl decals are cut into perfect round cut decals. There is no need to show the circle shape in the file or include a dieline. There is no additional artwork set, and we do ask you have a .25" bleed or upload a square design with colors flooded edge to edge of the artboard.

Oval Cut

Oval cuts are similar to the circle cuts above; however, the finish is an oval shape. In addition, there is no additional artwork set, and we do ask you include a .25" bleed or upload a rectangular design with colors flooded edge to edge of the artboard.

  • 1" All Corners
  • 3/4" All Corners
  • 1/2" All Corners
  • 1/4" All Corners

Installation - Care & Maintenance

Installation care and maintenance are fortunately effortless for window cling film. It requires a few essential items; here is a shortlist of what you will need:

  • Dish soap
  • Bucket
  • Damp cloth or towel
  • Dab
  • Squeegee

Installing Window Cling Flim

Below is the easy to follow step-by-step installation process:

  1. Clean the surface of the window or mirror thoroughly. Cleaning the surface will remove any dirt, grease, oil, and other residues interfering with the application.
  2. Apply an even coat of liquid dish soap to the surface you will apply your decal film on; this will help reduce air bubbles between layers when you peel off the backing paper later.
  3. Peel the backing paper off of the cling.
  4. Once the backing is removed, slowly and carefully place the window cling onto the desired surface.
  5. Now use the squeegee to wipe any air bubbles from the center of the graphic to the exterior of the edge of the vinyl.
  6. Step number 5 should allow any air bubbles to release from under the surface; repeat step 5 until the graphic appears flawless without air bubbles.

Maintenance Made Simple

The proper maintenance will ensure the maximum integrity of the graphic's lifespan. Start by removing the graphic from the application surface.

  1. Place the cling to soak in a bucket of soapy water for a few minutes.
  2. Gently place a cloth in the water, and use the material to remove debris and unwanted dirt.
  3. Remove the cling from the water and place it onto a dry towel.
  4. Use an additional towel to press against the cling to remove any remaining moisture firmly.
  5. Move the cling to the side and begin cleaning the application area surface.
  6. Now that the cling and install location is immaculate, you can now go back to see the step-by-step installation guide above.

Frequently asked Questions

FAQ

Static window clings are vinyl graphics that do not have an adhesive backing. The highly modified vinyl only reacts with installation pressure as mini vacuums "cling" to acrylic, glass, windows, or mirrors. Many have said static window clings can decorate any smooth surface, such as windows or walls, yet this is untrue. 

Static cling will work on car windows because they are glass. Static cling is a phenomenon that occurs when an object's surface has a large amount of electrostatic charge. When the two things are brought together, the one with high voltage will attract the other. Although many think static is how clings work, this is not true. Window cling material is highly modified and holds special properties that will only react with installation pressure, acting as mini vacuums "cling" to acrylic, glass, windows, or mirrors.
Static cling happens when two surfaces are rubbed together, and one of them has a high electrostatic charge. The electrons on the surface with the higher charge will be attracted to the surface with a lower charge, which causes an attraction.
Static clings can be applied and removed with equal ease. Static clings work best on glass, but they can also be used on other smooth, clean, and non-porous surfaces such as plastic, glass and mirror, depending on the application.
No, removable vinyl is not the same as window cling. Removable vinyl is a material that has a low-tack adhesive that will stick and remove easily from any smooth surface. While, window cling has no adhesive backing and only will "cling" to materials like glass, mirror, acrylic. A window cling is considered a non-adhesive product, and you can rest easy knowing that it will not leave residue behind when removed.
A window cling used hand install pressure to "cling" to materials such as glass, window, or even acrylic and can easily be removed without leaving unwanted residue behind. At the same time, a decal has permanent high tack, adhesive backing that will not remove easily.

One of the most extraordinary things about Static Window Clings is that they are so easy to “install.” All you need to do is:

  1. Peel the backing away from the cling
  2. Use water with a bit of soap to coat both the decal and the window, ensuring it is damp and not sopping wet. Use a towel to dry off excess water.
  3. From there, add the cling on and let it adhere, and as it dries off, you’ll see the sticker remain.

Helpful Tip: For static window clings that install from the inside, please look at the static clear window clings and their install from inside print options

Window clings can be put on the inside or outside of the glass. The standard static widow clings material is white and is excellent for exterior mounted applications, and will work perfectly on glass, mirrors, or acrylic. However, the graphic must be printed on clear window cling material for installation from the inside. This process requires the image to be reverse printed on the backside of the cling facing out to allow for the "cling" side of the vinyl to apply from the inside displaying the graphics to be seen from outside.
Yes, window clings are reusable. The highly sustainable, eco-friendly properties of using window clings over and over is what makes them so popular.
The first thing you'll want to check before the application is that the surface area around the application zone has been adequately cleaned. A big first mistake of not cleaning can contaminate the bond between surface and vinyl with debris. Most likely, dirt or something disrupts the bond between vinyl and window.

Yes, absolutely window clings can be washed. It is preferred as a preventative that your clings are taken down, cleaned, and re-installed back into place at least once every few months. Cleaning window clings are very simple as you can wash the cling with lukewarm water and dish soap. Here's a list of a few at-home items you'll need:

  • Small bowl
  • Warm water
  • Hand or Dish Soap
  • One medium to a large microfiber cloth
