Design It Yourself (DIY) - Window Decals - 48" x 48" (Made in Texas)
48" x 48" Window Decal
Save $$$ on a custom window decal by designing it yourself with our built in customizer. Click on the customize button above to get started.
Our custom window decals are adhesive decals that you can place on any window, glass door or other smooth surface. These semi-permanent decals can be printed in a variety of sizes and do not need professional assistance for installation. Opaque window decals will last indoors and outdoors for years with proper care, yet are easily removed when you’re ready for a new look. We print our decals on our Canon Colorado printers using a semi gloss UV resistant ink. This results in a very durable, vibrant decal.
This product listing is for our 48" x 48" or 4 feet by 4 feet window decal. Larger sizes can be found using the menu under the DESIGN IT YOURSELF tab.
Your design will be printed on white adhesive vinyl, we don't offer any clear or transparent decal materials at this time.
We will ship our "low-tack" vinyl decal by default. If you'd like a more permanent "hi-tack" decal or a perforated decal please let us know in the order comments.

The following instructions are to help you have a successful, timely install of your window decal. The installation is a simple process and requires no professional help. We recommend installing your decal in an environment that is dry with a temperature above 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Begin by cleaning the desired window or surface with window cleaner or light soap with water, removing all dust and dirt particles. If dust and dirt is not fully removed from the surface this may cause small air bubbles in your decal and prevent it from adhering properly. After cleaning the surface, either allow time for the surface to air dry or remove excess water with a rubber squeegee.
Lay out your window decal on the window with the backing still on and make sure it is aligned properly.
While holding up the decal where you want it to go, use a dry erase or washable marker to mark where your decal will be applied. Double check your alignment to make sure the window decal is where you want it to be.
Gently remove the backing by peeling the decal away from a corner. If you’re having difficulty, a piece of scotch tape placed on the backing can help create a tab for you to grip and peel away the decal. Avoid doing this step in windy conditions so that the adhesive side of the decal does not fold and stick to itself.
Carefully place the decal onto the window or desired surface. Use your alignment marks made in step 3. We recommend holding the decal upright with two hands near the top and placing only the top edge to the surface first, then use your hands to guide the decal on a little at a time. At this point only apply the decal lightly. If you need to reposition or adjust the decal you should be able to slowly and carefully peel the decal away from the surface and reposition it before the adhesive fully sets in.
Once the decal is in place, use a squeegee to remove air bubbles and small pockets. When using the squeegee, start in the center of the decal and move in a straight line to the right and left side of the decal—then move up and down working out any pockets or bubbles. Continue this process until you have run the squeegee over the entire decal. You’ll want to use some steady pressure with the squeegee to work out the pockets. You may place the back liner on top of your decal during this process to avoid damage to the decal. Once your decal has been fully squeegeed, you will not be able to reposition your decal.
This Custom Sign has an average turnaround production time of 2 days AFTER the approved design is submitted to the printer, plus transit shipping time.
WE DESIGN FOR YOU
If you are having trouble with your design you can click on this link to go over to our custom yard signs with design services included.
Enter your design instructions into the COMMENTS box. Include your color/theme choices, your text message, etc. Include as much detail as you can about what you want. Logos and graphics need to be sent to: [email protected]. Images and logos must be vector graphics (usually file types ending in PDF or EPS) because we are going to enlarge them. There is no set-up fee and no color fee (these are digitally printed). Please be as specific as possible when requesting your sign design. Turn-around time on custom designs is one to two days. When we design a sign for you we will send you images for your final approval. We will not print a sign without your written approval of the design.
There will be no proofs given after you purchase this product so make sure you have everything the way you want it (including spelling) before you submit the order. We do however preview the designs before printing, so we'll let you know if we have a concern about your design.
We DO NOT guarantee that the Custom Printed Sign will match the color displayed on your Computer Monitor or Printer exactly. Every substrate (print media) has a different density than paper so printed material will look differently. We can match colors fairly well, however.
Once we have received your order and design, Vista Flags is released from ALL liabilities for any errors including, but not limited to: Grammar, Spelling, Color Matching, Size, Image Placement, Resolution, and Color Density. Custom products are NOT returnable. However, we will make every attempt to satisfy our customers.
While we try to match the colors as accurately as possible, a variety of things will alter the colors, some of which are beyond our control (currently) including humidity. Inks respond differently to temperature and can change from batch to batch. If you are designing your own sign and it contains yellow, make it at pure as possible (100% Yellow - 0% everything else), slight percentages of other colors may turn the yellow green. Custom Signs are not returnable.
Shipping rates for light products like these are based on Dimensional Weight (DIM) and not actual weight. Dimensional Weight is what the shipping company (FedEx in this case) determines a package of any given size should weigh. Since they charge by the weight and not the volume of the package, they set a minimum rate for the space the item takes up in their trucks, planes, and cargo haulers. Previous to the implementation of DIM weight companies were shipping small items in large boxes (one size fits all) and taking up enormous amount of space and paying only for the weight. This is the way the shipping company gets us to keep the volume to a minimum so they can maximize their limited cargo space.
So if the weight seems a bit unreasonable, that is because it is. But it is out of our hands.
