FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We use high performance sign vinyl for all of our window stickers. Using automotive-grade vinyl means your window sticker lasts a very long time and is easier to apply. Our vinyl has an adhesive guarantee of 5-7 years. We recommend fitting window stickers on the inside to further increase their lifespan.
You can pull your window sticker off whenever you want. You don’t want lots of gooey or paper residue on your surface when you remove your custom window sticker. That’s why we use high performance sign vinyl. This type of automotive-grade vinyl sticks better on different surfaces and helps minimise any residue on your surface when you remove it. Window stickers are subject to constant heating and cooling, which can affect the adhesive over time. Window stickers can be more difficult to remove than other custom graphics as a result. However, our window stickers are designed to be easily removed when you want.
Yes. Frosted vinyl is a great way to add privacy and custom designs to your windows while still allowing plenty of light through. We’ve installed thousands of window frosting, frosted meeting room partitions and pearl-effect custom window stickers.
There are several things you should do before vinyl fitters arrive. This increases the lifespan of your window stickers and reduces fitting time.
- Clean the window to remove any dust from the surface. Minimise the amount of dust in the air as much as possible.
- Clear the area where work is to be carried out so installation areas are easily accessible.
PREPARING FOR YOUR QUOTE
Provide measurements for your window sticker in centimeters (cm).
Wrong measurements are the most common mistake we come across. To get perfect results first time around, carefully measure the spaces where you need window stickers. The more measurements the better.
If measuring for simple window stickers, tell us the size you want for the final artwork. For full window wraps, carefully measure the dimensions of your window excluding the frame. This ensures your window sticker covers your entire window perfectly.
Tell us which side of the window you want the sticker on.
You probably want your window stickers facing out. But you can have the actual sticker on the inside or outside of the window. Having it on the inside prolongs the lifespan of your window sticker and stops people outside from being able to peel it off.

Describe what you want in detail. Attach high-resolution artwork or reference images if possible.
The creative possibilities of vinyl are endless. There’s no limit to what we can print on or cut into vinyl. Custom sizes of stock designs from our shop, simple colours, complex custom artwork or even photographs. Describe exactly what you want in detail and always attach the highest resolution artwork (or vector) that you have available. This helps you get a quick and accurate quote.
Don’t have artwork? No problem. Our designers can make it for you as long as you describe what you want in detail.
Send vector artwork if you have it.
Your artwork must be in vector format for custom vinyl decals or lettering. If you don’t have a vector file, we can help you make one. You will need to send the highest possible resolution image file you have for this to work well.
Attach the highest resolution file you have.
Large custom wraps and vinyl stickers require high resolution images if you don’t have vector artwork. Make sure to send the highest resolution file you have available to you. This ensures you get the highest quality result possible.
A good rule of thumb is this. Want something 10 cm x 10 cm or larger? Your file should be at least 1 MB large. If not, it is probably very low resolution and will not print well.
Follow these technical specifications to get the best results.
Vector files (ai/svg/eps) in CMYK colour format are the best files to send. CMYK format ensures you get perfect colour matching between your custom print and the artwork in your document. Vector files mean we can scale your artwork to any size without losing any quality.
Make your file to scale when possible and set the document units to millimeters. All cut paths for die-cut stickers should be saved in a separate layer titled ‘CutContour’ and set to 1 pt stroke with a spot colour of bright magenta.
