For double sided window graphics, this eco-friendly material is the ideal choice. It has a blockout layer so the image on one side won't show through to the other, and the repositionable air release adhesive makes installation simple.
Double Sided Window Graphic
This double sided graphic is printed on both sides of a blockout PET film to prevent any show-through from the opposite side. It has an optically clear, low tack, repositionable adhesive on one side with an air release feature for easy mounting by hand without bubbles. Simply remove the release liner and stick to the window. It can be removed and reused as long as the adhesive surface is kept clean. Available in widths up to 50".
Longevity of 2-20 years indoors.
Extremely easy to apply and reapply without bubbles. Double sided print makes adding a graphic that is visible from both sides very easy. Can be moved and reused, as long as the adhesive is kept clean. PVC-free so it's eco-friendly.
On tinted windows, it can be difficult to see the design clearly through the glass, so in those cases, having two single sided graphics each mounted on opposite sides is recommended.
Short to medium term window graphics that need to be seen from both sides of the glass.
These instructions are provided for our customers that want to install their own window decals. Tools you will need: Soft squeegee or protect the image with paper (hard squeegee could damage the print), and masking tape for larger graphics. You can also use your hands to apply the decal, but it will be more difficult to get all the air out by hand..
This material should be applied dry. Because the micro-grooves can trap water, wet mounting is not recommended.
Use a soft squeegee or protect the image with paper during installation to prevent damage to the printed image.
The ideal temperature of the air and glass would be between 50-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Graphics should be trimmed so that they are at least 1/8" away from window frames and seals to allow for expansion. The graphic will not adhere to silicone edging.
All surfaces should be considered dirty and must be cleaned prior to installation. Clean the area where the decals are to be applied with a household, non-ammonia based cleaner. We recommend an alcohol based cleaner such as isopropyl alcohol or equivalent. Rinse thoroughly and dry.
Applying the Window Graphic
For smaller graphics, you can simply peel off the liner and stick the decal to the window, starting on one edge and smoothing the decal onto the window.
For larger graphics, position your decal in the desired location and tack into place on each end with small pieces of masking tape.
Peel back about 2” of the release liner away from the top edge on the adhesive side of your decal.
Cut that section of the release liner off and discard or fold it under so it's not in the way.
Squeegee down the exposed edge of the decal starting from the center and working towards the edges. Let the squeegee cause the contact with the mounting surface and brush from the center outward using overlapping 45 degree angled strokes.
Flip the graphic up, or have an assistant hold it up and start to peel back the remaining release liner.
Pull back a few inches of the release liner at a time and squeegee the graphic into place using the same technique as above.
If you get an air bubble, you can either lift the decal enough to release the air, or if the bubbles are not too large, you can pop them with a pin and squeegee the bubble toward the pin hole to squeeze out the air.
Once the entire decal is applied, squeegee the entire decal once more to ensure a firm bond with the surface.
Re-Applying the Window Decal
You can easily remove and re-apply the decal by peeling up a corner of the decal, being careful not to damage the edge. Using a thin object like a knife or credit card to lift the corner of the graphic will help make sure you don't fold or damage the corner while peeling it up.
Once the corner is lifted, simply peel the graphic off the window and follow the instructions above to reinstall.
Avoid touching the adhesive surface and make sure the window surface is clean before re-installing as the adhesive is only reusable as long as it remains clean and tacky.
If you are storing the graphic to be installed at a later date, put the adhesive side back on the release liner to protect it until you are ready to install it again.
