Vinyl stickers might just be the very best stickers ever! Highly durable, they don’t come off easily, but they won’t leave adhesive behind if you are careful. They don’t fade, so you can use them outside on doorways, windows, gates, signs, or anywhere, even in harsh weather conditions. The adhesive is stickier than a paper sticker, and most are made from a special opaque PVC film that is ideal for sticker printing.
