What Is A Front Adhesive Sticker?

As the name suggests, this kind of sticker has the adhesive on the front, instead of on the back like the average sticker. This means you can stick it to one side of a glass surface to display your design on the opposite side.

Front-adhesive stickers are the perfect choice for a window in a shop, a vehicle, or any other kind of window. For that reason, they’re also regularly referred to as “window decals”.

The makeup of a front adhesive sticker

Traditional stickers are back-adhesive, meaning they have the glue on the back of the design.

To a degree, you can think of front adhesive stickers as up-side-down stickers. The image below illustrates that:

  1. Yep, these stickers technically start with the backing paper that is applied to protect the adhesive.

  2. Next is the adhesive layer on the front of your sticker, on top of your design.

  3. The ultra-clear material we print your design on so you can stick it to the inside of windows or glass doors.

  4. Then, it's your custom design. We use the latest technology with amazing detail & vibrant colours. You can select to print white ink behind the colours for added vibrancy.

  5. Clear, glossy laminate that protects your design.

How can a front-adhesive sticker be used?

These kinds of stickers are really good for use on windows.

The only kind of windows they’re not suited to are tinted ones because they cannot be seen through the tinted window.

They are the best option for clearly displaying a logo, design or even some text from the inside where they can’t be tampered with and are protected from the weather.

This makes them great for usage by businesses looking to decorate their shop windows without exposing the designs to the elements.

A front adhesive sticker opens up new possibilities for displaying your artwork. It’s an option that allows you to better use your window space for showing information or branding.
