How to store Christmas window stickers?

You can store your window stickers in a cool, dry place and possibly stick them to wax paper to prevent the stickiness from drying out. There are a few tips and tricks you should follow when storing your stickers.

Make sure the window cling is held down flat since they tend to curl. You should store them somewhere clean, since they can lose their static cling when covered in grime, dirt, or dust.

You should also store them in a cool place, since heat can damage them.

Storage ideas for big and small christmas window stickers

There are a few storage ideas for big and small window clings which are very helpful. One of them includes using a binder with page protectors. 

Wax paper can be used between each cling and store in dust and waterproof boxes. 

Poster protectors tend to be very helpful in storage.The stickers should be laid flat on wax and placed against cardboard backing (wrapped with plastic or other dust protectors). 

Another thing that you can do is store them in vinyl record cases. You can also keep them in a filing cabinet against a hard backing and wrapped to keep free of dirt and debris.

What are Static window clings

Static clings stick by using the static between the window and the actual cling, allowing them to be used, moved, and replaced easily without any damage.

They can be big or very small. Made from templates or designed for a specific purpose/brand. Often they are used temporarily for:

  • Sales
  • Events
  • Seasonal promotions
  • Hiring
  • Renovations

The ability to remove and replace these clings as many times as you’d like to make them a great option for many businesses looking for a short term advertisement option.

They are not weatherproof, so they should be placed on the window from the inside to face out.

How to apply window clings

Research. There are simple steps to applying window clings.

The first step would be to clean the application surface. Because window clings use static, any dirt, grime, or dust that lingers on the windows will make it impossible for the clings to stick.

Make sure to use a microfiber cloth or other wipe that won’t leave residue or fibers behind. Step 2 includes Placement.

You may need to measure out the intended placement of your window cling to ensure that it is centered and level. A crooked cling sends a sloppy message to all that see it.

One way to ensure that the cling is centered is to measure and mark the placement with tape or washable marker.

Then starts the application method. There are really only two methods for applying window clings, each just as simple as the last. The two methods include dry and wet.

Dry– Window clings can be applied easily by placing them on the window and rubbing your hand over the cling to make them stick. However, this method may leave a few bubbles. 

To smooth out bubbles, you can run a flat scraper, such as a credit card, over the surface. Smooth from the center out for a seamless look.

Wet– Like a suction cup, window clings stick a little better (and will hold the placement longer) when the surface is a little wet. 

This may mean wiping the surface with a damp rag or spraying it with a water bottle before application. After spraying, you can roll the cling over the placement area from one corner or side to the other. 

This will reduce the possibility of bubbles. Then smooth your hand over it to make it stick and remove any occurring ripples or bubbles.
