A vinyl decal is a “sticker” that is affixed to a wall or other smooth surface for decoration and informational purposes.
Vinyl decals (aka stickers) can be used on a variety of surfaces. Laptops, vehicles, jars, windows, walls etc. Decals come in lots of different colours and finishes but they are usually only in one single colour. Why? Because vinyl decals are physically cut from a roll using s vinyl cutter or plotter. However, they can be layered on top of one another to add more colours.
How Vinyl Decal is Made
Once the decal has been cut from a roll of vinyl it’s removed from the machine and laid on a table for weeding. Weeding is when the excess vinyl (the negative space in your decal) is removed by hand. This can be quite a time consuming process depending on the complexity of the design. Check out the video for an example of what this looks like.
