Vinyl stickers are designed to be tough and durable in the battle against the elements. But does this include being waterproof? Sometimes you want a sticker to be outside. After all, that’s where it will be seen the most! In this case it’s important that your sticker is waterproof and protected from the elements. Read below to find out whether vinyl stickers are waterproof. Find out exactly how we make our vinyl stickers waterproof.

Are Vinyl Stickers Waterproof?

Vinyl stickers on their own aren’t waterproof. That’s why we laminate our vinyl stickers to make them waterproof. Laminating a sticker will protect it from water, oil and sun. Laminate is an overlay with a layer of plastic which is applied to protect the vinyl from the elements. Knowing a vinyl sticker will be used outside, we will laminate it to increase its lifespan and waterproof it.

    I’m looking for somewhere who will make 2 weather proof stickers that can be stuck to an outside door

    1 sticker will have a logo on it with a black background, the size of that sticker would be
    Height – 30.5 inches
    Width – 32.5 inches

    The other sticker would be plain black, the size of that sticker would be
    Height – 50 inches
    Width – 32.5 inches

    Could you let me know if this is something you could do and if so how much would it cost please?

    I need vinyl decals for a tent advertising. We have a tent but would like to put our brand on it. We need adhesive vinyl decals for the top and one size of the tent. The top would be a circular mortar and pestle that is our logo and the front would be a work font that need to fit in a 12.6 x 8 area. Do you think that you can help or would you be able to refer others that would?
