What are Clear Decals?
Clear decals are printed on white vinyl, but can also be transparent. Clear decals have custom finishing options like choosing whether you can apply the decal to either the inside or the outside of a window.
Which decal is right for you? Clear decals, standard white decals, removable decals, air release vinyl, perforated vinyl or clings? Find out here!
What kind of options are there with clear decals?
Clear decals have numerous finishing options. Finishing options are options that give you much more flexibility when it comes to how you want your decal printed.

* Flood White Install from Inside: flood white means that your entire artwork size is printed on white vinyl, while the rest of the decal is clear. Install from inside means that you would install the decal from the inside of the window (a retail store, etc) so that it can be read from the outside.

* Spot White Install from the Outside: spot white means that just the areas of your artwork that need ink are printed on white vinyl and the rest of the artwork area and beyond show a clear vinyl. Install from the Outside means that you would install the decal on the outside of the glass (a vehicle window, etc) and it could be read from the outside.

* Transparent:

* Spot White:

* Round Corners: You have the ability to round all of the corners at 5 different increments (3/8", 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" or 1")

* Cut: Clear decals have the option of three different cut paths (Halo, Circle & Oval)
What if I need a detailed cut for my clear decal?
If you don't mind having a white background on your detail, you can select Standard Decal with an Exact Cut.
Are clear decals removable?
Can decals can be removed but you may find some adhesive residue underneath. If you are looking for a truly removable clear option, our Clear Static Clings can be removed and reapplied often.

Boat registration numbers and decals are a requirement for all boats in the United States that are powered by an engine, including sailboats that use an engine for auxiliary power. Properly displaying registration numbers and decals is important for compliance with federal and state laws and helps to ensure the safety of all boaters on the water.

Boat registration numbers are assigned by the state in which the boat is registered and consist of a combination of letters and numbers. These numbers must be displayed on the boat in a specific format and in a location that is visible from both the port and starboard sides of the boat. The registration decals, which display the registration expiration date, must also be affixed to the boat in a visible location.

In addition to legal compliance, boat registration numbers and decals can also be a way to personalize and enhance the appearance of a boat. There are a variety of decals available, from simple registration decals to custom designs that allow boat owners to showcase their personal style or advertise a business.

When selecting boat registration decals, it is important to choose ones that are durable and designed for marine use. Vinyl decals are a popular choice as they are weather-resistant and can withstand exposure to water, sun, and salt. There are several types of vinyl decals available, including:

  • Standard vinyl: A durable, high-quality material that is resistant to fading and peeling.
  • Clear vinyl: A nearly invisible material that is ideal for applying over painted surfaces or for creating a subtle effect.
  • Perforated vinyl: A material that allows for one-way visibility, making it a popular choice for window decals.
  • Removable vinyl: A material that is easy to remove without damaging the surface of the boat.
  • Air release vinyl: A material that has small channels built into the adhesive layer, making it easier to apply and reducing the risk of bubbles.

Boat registration numbers and decals are an important part of boating and should not be overlooked. By selecting high-quality, durable decals that are designed for marine use, boat owners can stay compliant with the law while also enhancing the appearance of their boat.

Will my banner hold up in windy areas?

Vinyl Banners are great for everyday outside use with occasional windows but if your area has high winds or consistent winds, a mesh banner is the perfect banner for you! Mesh Banners are made of a durable mesh material that has holes that let the windy glide on through the banner. The holes are small enough that it doesn't detract from the full color vivid image, photo or message printed on your banner. On a vinyl banner the hems and grommets doing a pretty good job of reinforcing the banner on windy days. But with a mesh banner the mesh material takes away the constant strain high winds can put on any banner, allowing the banner to last much longer. Both banners can be used outdoors in almost any weather, but if you already know your area is subject to constant winds, choose our mesh banner!

What material is used for real estate signs?

Real Estate signs are most often used outside in all weather conditions, so it's important to select a material that will last. Our Corrugated Plastic (Corplast) yard signs are a great choice for real estate signs! The Corplast signs come in three thickness choices: 4mil, 6mil (our most common) and a heavy duty 10mil. If you need a small real estate sign like a 8"x 10" or 12"x 12" to prop up in a window, the 4mil choice works well. If you are looking for an 18"x 24" to hang on a post or prop up with an H Frame stand, our 6mil is perfect for this! If you really want to make a statement and go big, you can showcase your 24"x 36" For Sale sign on our 10mil Corplast material. All signs are printed with UV coated inks in full vivid color and are meant to last!
