Types of Window Glass Decor

Glass Decor

Your window panes are the first things that people see about your store. It is the best place to market your new deals, new products, and services. 

There’s nothing better than window decals when it comes to window advertising. You need something that can be easily available, easy to install, and easy to produce too. And decals fit the bill perfectly 

Seasonal or holiday window glass decals are a great way to show your customers that your business cares about them. Showcase special discounts and limited edition products and services. 

Window Decor Basics

Believe it or not, you have more options than decals. Although decals are the most durable, you have other options that you could consider according to your needs. Are decals the best option for you? Let’s get into it. 

Stickers

Stickers, although cheap, may not be the best option for your windows. Stickers are usually made of plastic with an image or graphic on one side and adhesive on the other. These stickers are very strong initially and even look very trendy. However, they do not have a long lifespan. 

Stickers may last at best a couple of days if you’re sticking them on the outside of the window. Usually, you have to use the outside of window surfaces for the graphics to be visible easily. This reduces the lifespan of the stickers.

The adhesive degrades over time. High temperatures may make the adhesive soft, which makes the sticker peel off from the glass surface. Lower temperatures make the sticker brittle. Stickers aren’t suitable for places with extreme temperatures. 

Although stickers may be used for promotions that need to be done only for a few days. 

Clings

Window clings are usually made of plastic and stick to windows by static electricity. Clings have to be placed on the inside of the windows to protect them from the elements. If you have untinted windows, you can use clings on the inside of the windows. 

Most store owners have tinted or glazed windows to give the storefront a professional look. Clings are not very frequently used, since there are better options available.

Clings could be preferred for their ease of installation. They don’t have any adhesive and do not leave behind any marks. Clings are preferred for seasonal decorations and are reusable. But keep in mind that they do not endure heavy usage for a long time. If you want something durable, you’d have to explore other options. 

Decals

Glass decals are fixed with adhesive and are durable. These are usually made with vinyl. The adhesive may be on the front or the back of the material. Decals come in different types of adhesive strengths.

The semi-permanent adhesive is durable and makes the vinyl stick to the window surfaces for long periods. You have to apply heat to the adhesive when you want to remove the decal. 

Weaker adhesives allow you to adjust the decals once placed. Depending on where you want to place the decal, you have to be careful about the placement of the adhesive. 

They aren’t reusable but very durable, which makes them the number one choice for external placement. Brand promotions and sales decals stay longer till you need them to. 

Decals are a great way to not only promote but also beautify your place.
