Permanent, low tack, and removable self-adhesive vinyl
Self-adhesive vinyl is a staple for printers and signmakers. Available in different weights, finishes, liners and adhesive strengths and colours for indoor and outdoor use.
Easy to print, cut, shape, and manipulate during installation, self-adhesive vinyl offers ultimate versatility. You can use it for window graphics, labels, signage, die-cut lettering, hoardings, posters, cars, and more.
The trick when specifying self-adhesive vinyl for any application is to consider the application surface and how long you are intending to leave it on there for.
Low-tack vinyl is removable, while high-tack vinyl will stick to the surface much more to prevent it from coming off – both products have a place for different use cases.
If you intend to remove the vinyl within the next six to twelve months, we recommend removable or low-tack vinyls.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is self-adhesive vinyl?
Sign vinyl is a thin, printable, flexible plastic with an adhesive applied to one side for installation on solid surfaces. It is cuttable to any shape and takes well to installations on all solid surfaces, including metals and some plastics.
What is sign vinyl made from?
Most vinyl is made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) with an aqueous or solvent based acrylic adhesive. You can also get PVC-free vinyl made from polypropylene (PP). The liner is usually made from paper or PET (polyethene) film.
What are the different types of self-adhesive vinyl?
You can buy sign vinyl with a white or greyback, different adhesive strengths, air release liners and different surface finishes (e.g., matte, semi-gloss). You can also get specialist vinyl like window clings and one-way vision vinyl.
What are the applications of self-adhesive vinyl?
It is perfect for labels, lettering, wall graphics, coverings, vehicle graphics, signs, notices, and stickers. Any sound, smooth solid surface is an ideal application, including glass, aluminium, and steel.
How to install self-adhesive vinyl?
Prepare the application surface with a suitable cleaner. Peel off the liner in stages depending on the size of the graphic, stick the vinyl to the centre of the installation with a squeegee and work your way to the edges holding it at a 45-degree angle.
