In the world of commercial signs, you’ll hear about both wall stickers and wall decals. Are these two products the same thing? Sometimes, they can be. The answer is a little complicated. In this article, we’ll explain what each means and what you should be looking for if, by wall stickers, you mean a professional sign.
Wall Stickers vs. Wall Decals
In Omaha, you will hear the terms wall stickers and wall decals used interchangeably by sign companies. In essence, they are the same product. Our wall stickers and wall decals are both made with high-quality vinyl material, and with an adhesive backing. These stickers are suitable for long-term use on walls and are highly durable in the face of direct sunlight exposure. Wall decals or stickers meant for outdoor use should be resistant to water and humidity as well.
While we use wall stickers and decals as interchangeable terms to describe vinyl wall signs, other industries mean something different when they say “sticker.” For example, companies that sell decorative stickers for scrapbooking, or decorating walls in homes, mean something else by wall stickers. Their products are typically not meant as commercial signage.
It is also important to know that wall decals and graphics may take the form of vinyl wall lettering.
Some Questions to Ask About Your Wall Sticker
If you want professional, commercial-grade wall decals and graphics, but your vendor is calling them “wall stickers” how do you know if you’re getting the right product? Here are a few questions to ask:
· Is the wall sticker made from vinyl? Who manufactured the vinyl and what weight is it?
· How long will the wall sticker last on the wall?
· Can the wall sticker be removed and reapplied?
· Is the wall sticker resistant to moisture and humidity?
· Is the wall sticker resistant to direct sunlight?
· Do you recommend this sticker for professional settings?
The answers to these questions can help you assess if your wall sticker is the kind of product that you expect it to be. If you’re interested in wall stickers as signs for your business in Omaha, the team at First Impression Signs and Graphics can help.
