What are Floor Decals & Floor Graphics?
Floor decals, also named floor graphics or floor stickers, are large decals that are placed on the floor of a store, business, or convention center. These decals are user definable and the possibilities are endless with custom floor signs. Many people and businesses utilize these floor stickers in order to advertise their business or certain products that they offer. Custom floor decals are a cost effective way to advertise products and services in businesses such as shopping malls, car sales, grocer stores, showrooms, and more. Custom floor graphics can be applied in a short amount of time by a professional or your above average joe.

Did you know that the average American spends 4.7 hours a day looking at their phone? What about that 60% of adults prioritize smartphone usage over walking? When out in the wild, your customers are more likely to be looking down at their phones than up at hanging signage. Floor decals are a smart marketing tactic with a high chance of being noticed by the average, texting while walking, pedestrian. Plus, their 2D nature means that you can put them in the most high-traffic areas of your business without obstructing movement. Get with the times and use floor decals to put your brand right in your customers’ line of vision!
Features of Floor Graphics
Vinyl floor decals are very durable. They are made from a tough, and long lasting, 3M vinyl. The vinyl for vinyl floor decals and other custom floor graphics is available in a plethora of different colors. This makes it easy to recreate a business’s logo perfectly out of the vinyl for decals for applications such as garage floor decals and garage floor graphics.
One of the best features about vinyl graphics is the fact that there are no offensive fumes during application as there typically is with traditional graphic painting. There may be a slight odor from the custom floor decals during the application process, but this is typically minimal. All of our floor graphics are both scratch and slip resistant, and are designed to withstand heavy foot traffic without posing any danger for slipping.

Floor Graphics Printing Options
Typically vinyl floor signs such as garage floor decals are printed using a vinyl plotter. This piece of equipment is used in conjunction with a personal computer. The vinyl plotter cuts the graphics out of a piece of vinyl. The vinyl pieces can then be assembled on a floor to complete the graphics. Since the plotter can cut and print graphics with virtually any edge, to any size, these pieces can be assembled like a puzzle to create large and intricate designs.
Installing Custom Floor Decals & Garage Floor Decals
For best results, floor decals should be applied to a clean, even, and dry surface. It is recommended to clean the floor area thoroughly (with products appropriate for that type of surface) and to let it dry completely before application. Floor areas with ridges, holes, or textured surfaces may leave air gaps under the cling. This can expedite wear, tear, and fraying. For the smoothest appearance and maximal longevity, smooth and flat surfaces are best.
Lifespan and Care for Floor Graphics
The lifespan for garage floor graphics, and other floor graphics, depends on the amount of traffic that it receives. If it is a high traffic area then it may last a matter of months, whereas if it is a low traffic area it can last years. On the brightside, the faster your floor decal gets worn out, the better it’s working! In order to extend the life of custom floor decals and garage floor decals, floor wax can be applied on top of the graphic in order to add a protective coating.
Our custom floor decals are printed on material that resists fading and scuffing, but it’s still a good idea to clean them every once in a while. Regular removal of dirt and debris will help your decal last longer and appear at its most vibrant. Lightly scrubbing your decal with a non-abrasive cloth soaked in soapy water will do a lot to extend its lifespan. We also recommend cleaning lightly around the edges to keep debris from building up under the cling, which could lead to peeling or fraying.
