Decal Lamination Options

What is decal lamination?

Lamination is a clear coat layer the goes over the top of the decal to give it extra protection against scratches, chemical spills and extra protection against harmful UV rays from the sun.  Think of it as a clear coat for the ink.  While our decals are designed to last many years in outdoor conditions without lamination, it is a good idea to use lamination if you want the decal to be extra durable.  *Note that die-cut/transfer style decals that are single color (where you choose the color in Step 2 when ordering) don't require lamination since no printed ink is involved with those.  The color is impregnated within the material so that color goes all the way through to the backside.

Do I need lamination?

This will depend on what you plan to use the decal for and what your budget is.  If the decal is used inside, barely sees sunlight or is rarely ever touched you can normally get by without lamination.

Lamination is recommended if:

  • Decals that are constantly touched as the ink can rub and scratch off.

  • Decals that may come in contact with harsh chemicals or fuel.  Gasoline can damage the ink so when a decal is used on something like a fuel tank it is recommended.

  • They will be used on boats or PWCs.  Reflection of the sun's rays is greatly amplified on the water which can cause premature fading of inks.

  • Off-road vehicles that will be muddy or scraped against trees, etc. can use the protection of lamination.

  • If you want a decal with a special finish that is not available without.  We offer glossy, matte and metallic which may not be available as standard prints.

  • Or if you simply want the most durable decal you can get.

What are the finish options available when using lamination?

We essentially offer 3 different style of finishes:

Glossy.  This makes our standard decal thicker and has more of a "wet look" to it.  Think of a standard paint job vs. a paint job with a clear coat.

Glossy Laminated Decal

Matte.  This gives the decal a softer or muted look by taking out the shine from the decal.  Gits ride of all the glossiness.

Matte Decal

Metallic (Silver or Gold).  This gives the decal some sparkle that really makes it "pop". We also offer reflective material or metallic silver as your material option to achieve a metallic look similar to this (though doesn't have near the sparkle that this does).  This material is hard to show how special it look in a photograph so we have posted some videos at the bottom of this page to give you a better idea of how it looks.

  • Our decals are made from commercial quality vinyl that will last several years in harsh outdoor conditions. See color chart and/or material chart (if a full color print) for outdoor life expectancy for your particular design.

  • They come with adhesive on the back of the decal. Note that we do also offer front adhesive decals.

  • All decals are CUSTOM MADE to your specifications of size and color/material.

  • Each design can be made in any size and are measured LEFT TO RIGHT. (*Except Stick Figure Decals).  You choose the size in STEP 1 when ordering.

  • Our decals can be made in any color found on the color chart if you are chosing a color in Step 2.  If this is a "full color" printed style decal (you are choosing a material, not color, in Step 2) then we may be able to still change the color but it would be a color from one of these color charts.

  • The white rectangle the design is shown on is not part of the decal.  Most decals will not have a background; the majority of our decals are die-cut around the shape of the design unless otherwise noted or show. *Some FULLCOLOR decals will have white within the design. See the product information and the diagrams below for more information.

  • You may also choose to have a Shadow, Outline or Contour in an additional color for single color transfer decals.

  • Discounts are automatically added if you purchase more than one item.  Items don't have to be the same to qualify for the discount.

  • Please see the FAQ page for answers to questions you may have.

  • Is the design shown above close to what you are wanting but not quite perfect?  Use the "Ask a question" tab (above) to let us know what needs to be done to make it perfect for you. Or you can simply order and note in the comments box the change needed.  We will make the change and email you before we ship if there are any questions.

  • Don't see what you want in our catalog? We specialize in Custom Decals and Custom Stickers so you can send us your idea and we will make it for you.

The image below shows 3 different decal styles.  Use them to help visualize how your decal will look depending on what type of decal you are purchasing.

  1. The first one on the left is your standard die-cut transfer style decal.  The image on the order form shows it in black (upper left hand corner of the image) but yellow was chosen for the color.  As you can see the surface color shows through all the open areas within the design.  See the order form image.
  2. The middle design is similar but is with a Full Color transfer decal.  The design is printed but still has open areas within the eyes and mouth so those are cut out.  You can see what parts will be cut out on a full color decal as there will be a thin gray line any place there is a cut.  See the order form image.
  3. The final one on the right is a full color decal but there are no holes. The white edge wraps around the design giving it a white contour.  Once again, the edge is represented by a thin gray line.  See the order form image.  *Note that we have updated this design on the website where the white part is cut out above the red girl's tail.
  4. If you have any questions please use the "Ask a Question" tab above find out more.
