Inside Application vs Outside Application Stickers

Welcome to Application Alley! I'm Joel, and today we're delving into the fascinating world of stickers, exploring the nuances between stickers designed for outdoor versus indoor application.

Outdoor application stickers are straightforward: they're crafted from vinyl material with your design printed on the front and adhesive on the back. These versatile stickers can adhere to various surfaces like water bottles, laptops, or vehicle windows, enduring exposure to the elements. At, all our outdoor stickers come with a complimentary layer of gloss or matte lamination, safeguarding against scratches, water damage, and UV rays for up to five years.

In addition to outdoor stickers, we offer stickers specifically designed for indoor use, such as parking permits. These stickers need protection from the elements and should be tamper-resistant. Our indoor stickers are applied to the inside of glass, utilizing a unique reverse printing technique. This method involves printing your design in reverse on clear material, allowing it to be seen through the adhesive side. A layer of white ink enhances visibility while maintaining a standard sticker appearance.

But printed stickers aren't the only option for indoor application; we also offer transfer stickers designed to be applied inside. These stickers feature a reverse-cut design, ensuring readability from the outside while maintaining correct orientation when viewed from inside. While our standard vinyl materials support reverse cutting, specialty materials with gray adhesive backing are not suitable for this application.

For any inquiries or assistance with your sticker project, our dedicated customer service team at is here to help via phone, email, or live chat. We're committed to helping you create something remarkable. Let's get sticky!
