However, all these can make a huge difference based on how you plan your ad campaigns. Let us quickly explore each of these window cling options.

Stickers and decals – In many cases, stickers, decals, and similar items are used adhesives with custom print on one side and stick on flat surfaces.

Application of window clings

Step #1: Clean surface thoroughly

If there is any dirt, dust, or grime on the surface, then it may not be possible to stick the cling onto the windows. So, you need to clean it thoroughly using a microfiber cloth and soap water and ensure there is no residue left behind.

Step #2: Placement of the cling

You may measure the area for placement of the cling to ensure it is leveled and centered properly. Use a measuring tape also and mark the exact space for cling placement.

Step #3: Application of the cling

There are two methods to apply clings:

  1. Dry method – placing the cling on the window and rub the hand across the cling and directly stick it. However, there are chances that bubbles may be left inside the cling. Use a squeegee or a plastic card to get rid of the bubbled.
  2. Wet method – With this method, the window cling will stick better if it is bigger. You may wipe the surface with a damp rag or spray water onto the surface before applying the cling. Then you can roll the cling over the surface from one corner to the other. This will reduce the chances of bubbles.

If you are not confident of applying it all on your own, it is advisable to get the assistance of a professional to it for you.
