Window Sticker Printing Explained – Inside or Out?

Jazz up your shop window by using a beautiful window sticker! Custom window stickers give your storefront a clean and professional look whether you are using it as signage, promotions, or even decor. You might think stickers are a bit complicated, should it be on the inside, on the outside, should the design be reversed. What? We get it and we’re here to explain it all. Firstly, you should know that there are two kinds of window stickers available: opaque and translucent window stickers.

Below is a quick guide explaining window sticker printing. With our help, you’ll be able to easily design your window vinyl.

Opaque Window Stickers

Opaque Window Stickers

Opaque window vinyl works just like regular stickers. As your design is printed on white adhesive sticker material, the resulting print will have white on the unprinted areas.

These window stickers are placed on the outside of your shop so that everyone passing by your storefront can see your brand’s logo and advertisements. You don’t have to worry about your stickers fading, dissolving, or peeling away, because they are made of durable material that can withstand any weather conditions.

Translucent Window Stickers

Translucent Window Stickers

Translucent window stickers are initially confusing but are actually quite simple. They can be used as both inside and outside window stickers.

If you plan to put translucent window vinyl from the outside of your shop, the submitted artwork should be right side up. Just treat it like you would an opaque window vinyl.

If you plan to stick the window vinyl from the inside, the artwork needs to be mirrored or reserved. This way people from the other side of the window will be able to see your artwork right side up.

In short, if you are putting it on the outside, the artwork should be right side up. If you are placing it on the inside, the design should be mirrored.

Before we end this, here’s a quick note about custom window stickers. White images or texts are usually not printed on translucent window stickers. We recommend that you use opaque window stickers instead. However, if you really want a translucent window sticker with white images or text, ask for a quotation through the provided form.

Creating window stickers is easier than you think. Now that you know how they work, creating the best window sticker printing for your storefront will be a piece of cake.
