Static Clings | A Vinyl Sticker Alternative

Adhesive can be a scary thing.

Adhesive means you have to commit. Once you line up your Vinyl Sticker and rub it down, you’re all in. There’s no going back…unless you’re ready to try Static Clings.

How we do it: Digitally Print (in full color) onto clear material in front-facing or back-facing formats. The material is light and flexible, allowing electron buildup to keep your design comfortably adhered to glass until you decide to remove it. No adhesive necessary.

Things to Remember:

1. Clean the Glass – Dirt, oil, hair, and other debris will definitely ruin your fun if you let it. Windex followed by a wipedown with a lint-free cloth should do the trick.

2. Soft Hands – The Cling material is malleable and will stretch if you handle it too roughly. Be gentle when you peel the cling.

3. It’s Not A Race – Stickers are pressure sensitive and need a swift application. Clings need you to slow down and take care to avoid bubbles & creases.

4. This Isn’t Over – If you exercise some discipline and take care of your Static Cling, you’ll be able to re-apply and get few uses out of it. So be cool.

If you have more questions or are just overwhelmed with enthusiasm, take the next step toward happiness and Request A Quote for Static Clings.

5 Surfaces You Should Never Put Stickers On

1. Porous Surfaces: Stucco and similarly textured surfaces are not your friend. Nearly all High Quality Vinyl Stickers utilize a pressure sensitive adhesive. This means that if you can’t get a smooth even connection between sticker and surface, that sticker is going to fall off.

2. Fabric: Clothing was made for printing. Inks, dyes, and even heat transfers can jazz up any article of clothing. Stickers might stick around for 20 minutes on your favorite t-shirt, but movement, flex, and moisture will only help your sticker fall off and blow away in the wind.

3. Cardboard: At first glance cardboard might seem like an okay idea. It’s smooth, flat, and stiff. Unfortunately, the natural fibers and texture of cardboard, along with environmental factors like dust, can play havoc with your stickers and cause premature separation. Instead, go for a mega-adhesive label.

4. Extreme Curves: Complex, heavy curves will immediately reject your sticker at every turn. Curves create tension and tension causes stickers to stretch and pull right off of their new home. Instead, go for mellow curves with lots of transition like on a helmet. Steer clear of stickering bowling balls, cannon balls, and similar surfaces.

5. Human Skin: Skin is major danger zone. Oil, hair, pores, and constantly shedding of skin layers makes the human body completely uninhabitable for stickers. Save your sanity, stick to temporary tattoos when it comes to body parts.
