Window decals are a key factor in advertising for your business. However, whether you use them on your car or storefront, there may be times when you need to remove or replace them, especially decals used for sales or other temporary announcements.

But are window decals reusable? Here’s what you need to know.

Not All Window Decals Are Reusable

If you have temporary use for your decals or know you’ll want to reuse them, make sure you get decals made with vinyl film. These decals are made of thin vinyl and are easy to remove and reuse as they don’t use adhesive. However, any adhesive decals may not be reusable, so always ask.

How to Remove Reusable Vinyl

If you want to reuse your window decals, here is a simple way to remove them to ensure they are reusable.

  • Peel the decal slowly from the window, being careful not to tear it
  • If you have trouble lifting it, try starting in a corner, lifting it with your fingernail or a small scraper

How to Store Reusable Decals

The key to reusing window decals is to store them properly. First, they must remain clean and dry. Any dust or grime on the decals will prevent them from sticking to the new location. They are best stored on a clean piece of plastic away from sunlight and excessive dust.

Reusing Window Decals

When ready to reuse your decals, remove them from the plastic. Make sure the surface you’re sticking them to is clean, and carefully reapply the adhesive. Make sure to go slow and ensure no dirt or grime is on the decal.

Final Thoughts

Window decals can be reusable if you buy the right type and carefully store them. The key is to remove them carefully, keep them clean, and reapply them to a clean, smooth surface for the best results.
