Can I create multiple decals in the same order?

What surfaces will my decals adhere to?

This will vary based on the decal stock you choose. Decals adhere best to smooth, hard surfaces.

Yes. We offer flat matte and ultra gloss UV coatings on all decal stocks except crack ‘n’ peel. Learn more: UV Coating, Coating vs. Laminate

Do you have water-resistant options?

You can add a UV coating to decal printing to create a water-resistant barrier, but that will not make your decals fully waterproof. UV coating is available on all stocks except crack ‘n’ peel.
