perforated car decals.
With a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee
Advertise your business or add a personalized graphic to your vehicle using our custom perforated car decals. With specially-designed micropunctures over 50% of the film, the adhesive vinyl decals appear opaque from the outside without compromising the driver's view. Perforated car decals also have the addition of a clear laminate that prevents dirt buildup in the pores.
Installation: If you want your decals to cover the entire window, make sure you order them one inch longer and taller than your window to allow for trimming. Premark the desired position with a dry erase marker. Peel the backing off and realign to your marks. Press the decals onto the window, starting from the middle and working your way out. Trim the excess with a sharp razor blade. Installation is much easier with two people.
Care: Perforated decals are safe for most car washes and will stand up to most exterior elements. To extend the life of your decals, avoid parking in direct sunlight for long periods of time. Remove dirt and other buildup regularly to keep adhesive strong.

Yes. We offer two different cut options. The first (contour cut) cuts your design to the exact shape of the design. The second (halo cut) leaves a small border around the edge of your entire design.
There are two things to note with cut to shape perforated decals. The first is that in most cases it is not not necessary. This is due to the fact that it offers one way visibility and so it doesn’t matter if it covers the entire window. Unlike other decals that may obstruct visibility and need to be cut this isn’t the case with perforated decals.
The second note is that due to the micropunctures of the perforated decal, cutting will not leave a flush or straight edge. Rather the edge will result in a somewhat ragged edge. While this shouldn’t affect the functionality of your decal we don’t want it to come as a surprise if you decide to choose one of our cut options.
Our recommendation for perforated decals is to simply have them cover the entire window and avoid cutting them to shape.
Installation & Care
Yes, your decal comes with an adhesive side that is protected by a backing when originally shipped. Removing it is much like peeling a sticker away from a sticker sheet. The easiest way to do so is to start in a corner to get it started. Once started gently peel away the backing to expose the adhesive side of the decal.
If the very thin backing is hard to find or remove then a piece of scotch tape can be used to help peel away the backing. Simply put the piece of scotch tape on corner of the backing with part of it sticking off the edge of the sign. Then use the piece of tape like a tab and pull the backing away.
Please be sure to remove the backing slowly and carefully so that you don’t unintentionally leave part of the backing on the sign.
For the installation of your perforated decal, water should not be used. Before installing your decal make sure to read through all the instructions.
The first step is to clean your window with water and allow it to air dry. Once it is dry you can remove the backing protecting the decal’s adhesive side. Make sure the decal doesn’t stick to itself once the backing is removed!
The next step is the initial application of the decal to the window. This should be done lightly and methodically so that as air bubbles or pockets arise the decal can be peeled away and reapplied as needed. The easiest way to accomplish this is to “tack” two of the corners of the decal into place. To tack the corners just gently press the decal against the window in the corners. This will allow you to then apply the rest of the decal working from one side of the decal to the other. Carefully peel it back and reapply as necessary. Using a flat edge such as a squeegee helps to apply the decal without air pockets arising.
Once the entire decal is in place it can be pressed more firmly onto the window to ensure that the adhesive fully sets in. As noted elsewhere, once the adhesive is fully active removing and repositioning your decal will not be possible.
Your decal should be washed regularly. To do so use a wet or damp cloth that is non-abrasive to gently wipe away any build up on the laminate overlay. This will help retain the transparency of the decal and the vibrancy of the printed design.
While your decal is installed you should not use power or pressure washers at home nor car washes. The power of both of these methods can be significant enough to cause the decal to start to peel away or to rip the decal right off the window.
To remove your decal simply pull the decal away from the window. A sharp edge that won’t damage the window itself can be used to help peel it away. Usually no residue will be left, but when the decal is aged or has been exposed to extreme conditions, some residue may be left behind. In these cases most standard cleaners and a scrubbing will remove it.
Difficult to remove decals come off easier when heated up. This can be accomplished by parking in the sun before removing it or even heating up the window with the car’s heat or a blow dryer. Though having to do either of the latter is rare and a last resort option for a decal that may have been in place for years.
