Decals Or Clings? How To Tell Which Signs Are Right For Your Windows


We may be living in the digital world, but that doesn't mean that printed advertising has no value. While shoppers often turn to their smartphones to do product research, 77% of consumers still go into a brick-and-mortar shop, rather than a website, to buy what they need. But in a saturated marketplace, you have to do what you can do stand out from the competition. For many business owners, that means that their signs for windows need to be eye-catching enough to get customers through the door.

But how do you know which kind to choose? And what if there are types you haven't even thought of? Below, we'll discuss some of the most popular options for signs for windows and doors. You may even find out more about an option that never crossed your mind.

Decals are a popular option for window and glass door signs because they're versatile. They have adhesive backing that sticks to the window or door, which can be secured from the outside or the inside. While you can adjust these signs for glass doors and windows a little bit when you first install them, the adhesive will soon kick in and make the installation permanent. That means they can't really be repositioned after a certain time. You can find decals in opaque, clear, and perforated varieties, which make them attractive to all kinds of businesses.

Unlike decals, window clings can be repositioned and used multiple times. That's because they don't contain adhesive like decals do. Instead, they're applied through static charge. While this makes them able to be reused or moved to fit your business's needs, they're not as durable as decals. If you're trying to choose between the two, think about your requirements: need something long-term? Decals might be better. Need something moveable or for a short period? Consider clings.

Suctioned Sign Holders
But there's actually a third option when looking at signs for windows: a window sign holder with suction cups. Essentially, these types of sign holders are the best of both worlds: they feature an extremely strong adhesive but can be removed and repositioned without struggle or sticky residue. Another benefit of these holders is that it gives you more freedom to switch up your advertising. Instead of having to pay for new decals or clings to be designed and produced, you can easily switch out the printed sign or document inside. This feature makes it more cost-effective and versatile than any other option we've discussed.

While not every business has the same advertising needs, it's a good idea to consider all of the options available to you. For more information on products like these, contact your local resource for displays and related services.
