Door decals are a versatile way to take advantage of all the available marketing space for your business, whether used to inform customers of your location’s operating hours or to enhance branding. The right kind of vinyl door decals can establish brand consistency before customers even step into your business, helping to create the sense of professionalism you want to embody.
Custom door decals and graphics are a simple way to turn a plain glass storefront or office doors into useful surfaces for informational or promotional messaging. You can apply stickers and front door decals in a variety of ways including to:
• Help bring attention to store policies
• Showcase new products
• Promote special offerings or sales
• Display hours
• Block out and diffuse natural light

This is the simplest and most popular style of door graphics. Cut vinyl lettering on door glass is easy to design and just as easy to apply. They are often used to meet your customers at eye level with your branding and key operational details. Whether made in just a single color or in several, vinyl lettering is a simple but effective method of adding graphics and information to your doors.
More commonly seen on interior doors, but just as useful as an exterior door decal, privacy film gives the glass a more translucent look to obscure what’s behind it. Privacy films are most often used for conference rooms or offices and can be designed to incorporate your branding or logo. When used on exterior doors and windows, these films can also diffuse natural light in a way that looks professional and sophisticated.
Looking to make a great impression and go all-out with your business door decals? A complete, full-color door covering or vinyl wrap can get the job done. This is a perfect option for launching a new product or bringing extra attention to a seasonal sale. Like privacy film, it’s also good for helping to diffuse or block out natural light on glass in the event your storefront gets a little too much sunshine. Or, if you have solid metal or wood doors, a full door decal covering can be used to showcase your logo or custom messaging to customers.
When you are looking for big glass door decals that don’t totally block out natural light, perforated vinyl film is the best choice. It works as a nice middle ground between full-blown door coverings and translucent privacy film. This type of film allows you to showcase large promotional messaging or graphics that can be seen from afar while still obscuring what’s inside to passers-by. Because of the perforated nature, these films allow those who are indoors to see through to the outside.
You have two options when choosing where you want to place your custom glass door decal – inside or outside?
Decals placed on the outside of the glass are considered standard door decals with a printed design on the front and adhesive on the back. Applying a decal on the inside face of the glass is an alternative that requires adhesive on the front while the design is printed on the back of clear vinyl material.
Inside glass decals may last longer since they are protected from exposure to harsh climate conditions and potential vandalism. However, if those aren’t significant concerns for your business, it ultimately comes down to personal preference.
Almost any building can use door decals for their business, but here are some of the most common uses:
• Schools – Add your mascot or school logo to enhance school spirit
• Restaurants – Promote your hours and give directions to pick-up areas
• Healthcare – Create a welcoming, nurturing environment
• Manufacturing – Display important safety rules and restrictions
• Corporate offices – Provide privacy to glass-enclosed offices and conference rooms
