Custom Vinyl Decal Information
Vinyl decals are different than custom stickers because decals contain transfer tape, and stickers do not. Some people refer to these decals as transfer stickers or window decals. The outcome is mostly the same because you now have a graphic adhesive applied to a clean and smooth surface, but it's essential to know when to order a decal vs. a sticker. Stickers are generally easy to peel and stick to just about anything, while decals require, by definition, a transfer mechanism.
- NO MINIMUM Quantity Limits
- Add text, personal photos, or use our clip art options.
- Use on car windows, walls, laptops, and other clean, smooth surfaces.

- Choose your shape, size, and color to get started.
- 2.5 mil vinyl thickness, up to 5 years of indoor/outdoor durability
- We have over 100+ decal shapes to choose from
Decals need transfer tape because the design of the graphic adhesive is complex or contains more than one design element. The transfer tape or film allows the design to be transferred from the liner to your surface while keeping the design layout. Our custom transfer stickers offer a custom cut-to-shape option that will always require this transfer tape.
StickyLife window decals are custom printed for your unique needs in various shapes, sizes, and colors. Our decal designer makes it easy to create a one-of-a-kind decal for yourself or a friend as a personalized gift.
Our Decal Design Templates can be used to get started with your custom design.
Vinyl Decal Application
Our decals and transfer tape have been carefully selected through years of testing and experimentation with the use of the Wet Application Method of installation. There are a number of factors to keep in mind when installing your decals, such as: surface temperature and the specific surface being used for the application, just to name a few. The video (at right) will help walk you through our recommended application method.
However, each decal is slightly different, so it's important to select the method of installation that you are most comfortable with, to help ensure the desired end results. If you still have questions after watching the video, don't hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org & we'll be happy to help you out as best we can. We're here for you!

Custom Vinyl Decal Colors
The colors we provided by default are only default colors. You can upload your graphics, logos, and more with your colors, and we will do our best to match your colors. At the moment, we can hit about 98% of Pantone colors within a delta-e of 3 or lower, which means that it's virtually indistinguishable to most people. Use these default colors as an example. Select the color from the drop-down menu above to make your selection before entering the Design Tool. In addition, we provide color details for creative professionals who need specific colors.
Parts of Personalized Decals
When you purchase a custom decal from StickyLife, you can expect your graphic to be sandwiched between a release liner and transfer tape. The transfer tape makes application easy. See our decal application how-to video to learn more. Check out our learning center to learn more about how to apply vinyl decals.
Decal Application Surface
Apply your custom vinyl decals onto smooth surfaces like wood, glass, high gloss plastic, and metal. Generally, you shouldn't have any difficulties if the surface is clean and smooth. However, lightly textured surfaces like some plastics can be difficult, if not impossible, to apply.
Decal Adhesive Details
StickyLife decals contain adhesive on the backside by default. However, upon request, the adhesive can be added to the front of your decal instead. The adhesive we use is solvent-based and ideal for outdoor use because it will not break down when in contact with water.
Decals without Minimum Quantity Limits
StickyLife offers No Minimum quantity limits, so you can buy custom decals as a test run before placing a larger order. Because we have no minimums, you can also purchase a small batch to test which designs sell best with your customers if you're reselling.
Vinyl Decal Pricing

Vinyl Decal Weathering Conditions
When shopping for custom vinyl decals, consider what kind of adhesive is used. If they are not made from vinyl and don't use solvent-based adhesive, there is no guarantee they will work outside for very long. Other manufacturers use acrylic-based glues that will not last as long outdoors. Our decals are made from vinyl and use solvent-based adhesives for outdoor use. Because we make our decals this way, you can expect them to withstand most weathering conditions for up to 5 years.
After about five years, you might notice some subtle color fading. How much sun exposure and usage the decal goes through will determine your decal's lifespan. Customers who use their decals indoors will experience a much longer lifespan.
Turnaround Time for vinyl decals
Turnaround time for all custom and personalized decal orders is based on the shipping method you select during checkout. We suggest providing us with at least ten business days for large volume orders.
Decal Ordering Expectations
After you go through our Vinyl Decal tool, you will receive digital proofs for review. If approved, you will click the add to cart button to add your custom decals to your shopping cart for order placement. After placing your order, our pre-production department will review your designs and prepare them to be sent into production. If you provide us with any order comments, we will respond to them at that time. If we have any issues with your designs, we will place the order on hold and contact you for a resolution. Once your files are ready, we will submit your order to production. Our production team will review the print results and make the necessary cuts to your design. Once finished, your order will be passed to shipping, where we will do a final inspection on the quality of your custom-printed decals. We will ship your order if all looks good and the proper quantities are in place. You can then expect a shipping confirmation email to let you know your order is on its way.
- Pre-Production: During this process, we review your design settings—image quality and prep your order by adding cutlines, bleeds, and more to your print file.
- Production: The production process is just about what one might imagine. We send your files through the appropriate printing process for your order. Most decals are combined with other customer orders for larger job runs.
- Post Production: After production, your order goes through a quality review process to determine if the outcome was as it should be. If your custom vinyl decals do not pass, they will go back into production.
