The difference between Stickers & Decals


Stickers are either printed, made from cut vinyl. If you want something that is going to last outdoors, choose a sticker that is made from vinyl or polyester material. Our Stickers and emblems are all manufactured with quality Vinyl and Laminated.   A sticker generally has two layers: the decorative layer which has adhesive on the back side and pattern on the front; and the paper on the back which you peel off. A good, durable sticker should last 8 years or beyond, and Vinyl cut stickers can emulate the finish of a decal to give the best of all worlds and a tougher product especially when it has been Laminated.  


All decals are stickers (but not all stickers are decal). A decal is basically a decorative sticker, generally used outdoors. They are a design that can be transferred from one surface to another and will have three layers: paper on the back, the decal itself, and paper on the front, this allows the background colour to show.. Decals are not made as tough and will generally only last around three years if used outdoors (and if laminated). They are usually made by using an eco solvent printing process or with latex inks through the use of a Thermal colour printer, or similar.
