Self-adhesive films are more than just stickers. With the high-quality film from print24.com, you can transform vehicles, walls, furniture or other objects with flat surfaces in no time. Our self-adhesive film is also just as suitable for window graphics as it is for outdoor advertising on vehicles. When configuring your print job, please note whether the film needs to be suitable for indoor or outdoor use. All of the three indoor self-adhesive films available meet the strict fire safety standard DIN 4102-1 when bonded to plasterboard, glass or steel and thus belong to building material class B1. This means that our indoor self-adhesive films are all suitable for public buildings.
Monomeric adhesive films in various designs for indoor applications
Monomeric films (Temporary) - Perfectly fitting for trade fairs or sales areas
With this 0.1 millimetre thick adhesive film, you can create advertising material that can be used short notice. This material is ideal for use at trade fairs or for special surfaces in shops and shop windows. The robust, white film is free of cadmium, self-adhesive on one side and can be used on almost all smooth and even curved surfaces. With the monomeric films you have the choice between different film types:
- PVC film monomer white: is a soft PVC film with removable, grey coloured polyacrylate adhesive, suitable for short term outdoor advertising.
- PVC film monomer white with air channels: Calendered PVC film with removable grey coloured adhesive and air channel structure. The air can escape through micro channels during application. It is specially developed for short-term bonding at trade fairs or events. Due to the matt surface and the air channel structure in the adhesive, it is ideal for quick and easy bonding during promotional campaigns.
- Easy Dot Film monomeric: The monomeric white PVC film has "dot" applied, permanently elastic, permanently adherent acrylic adhesives. This makes the material easier to process and more repositionable. It has a light surface structure due to the dot-shaped adhesive application and is designed for short-term indoor applications such as trade fairs, or for sale advertising!
Thanks to solvent-free acrylic adhesive, this film can be repositioned with ease. In addition, the adhesive is age-resistant, so that the film also sticks for longer periods of time. The white adhesive film can also be removed from most surfaces without leaving any residue. For example, if residues of the adhesive stick to PVC, these can be removed quickly and easily with methylated spirits. In order for the product to adhere well to the surface, it should not be dirty. We recommend to use dry bonding only.
Polymer adhesive films in various designs for outdoor use
Polymer films (Long-term) - Perfect advertising solutions for indoor and outdoor
The adhesive foils in a thickness of 70 to 80 μm (0.07 - 0.08 millimetres) can be used for permanent advertising campaigns. The low thickness ensures that the film lies on a surface almost like a "second skin". These thin adhesive foils can be applied to smooth surfaces as well as slight curvatures. The adhesive used is a polyacrylate adhesive, which is applied in dots. It is age-resistant, permanently adhesive, permanently elastic and ensures perfect adhesion. You can choose from the following film types:
- PVC film polymer white: Calendered polymer PVC film in 0.08 millimetres with permanent, pure, grey-coloured polyacrylate adhesive for long-term indoor and outdoor advertising.
- PVC film polymer white with air ducts: Calendered polymer PVC film in 0.08 millimetre with permanent, pure, grey coloured polyacrylate adhesive and with micro air channels. Suitable for long-term indoor and outdoor advertising. The air channel structure enables simple and quick bubble-free bonding, especially of large-format designs. Air inclusions can be easily removed under the film. Suitable for flat or slightly curved surfaces.
- PVC film polymer transparent: Polymer PVC film in 0.07 millimetres with transparent solvent polyacrylate, repositionable, with permanent final adhesion. Suitable for long-term outdoor advertising.
Reusable adhesive films - for use on flat surfaces
Adhesive films, reusable - Ideal interior decoration for all flat surfaces
These special indoor adhesive films are white or transparent, have a matt surface and are made of polyester. They have a thickness of 175 µm. The special feature of these films is their "micro suction cup technology". This allows the adhesive films to be repositioned even more flexibly and can be removed without leaving any residue. This makes these adhesive films suitable for use as glass decoration films - ideal for shop window decoration or for sticking on glass fronts indoors where the motif changes frequently. You can choose between different types of adhesive film:
- Adhesive film white: made of calendered, flexible, statically adhesive vinyl film, which can be removed and reused without leaving any residue. Designed for temporary application on glass, but can also be used on other smooth, clean surfaces such as metal and plastics.
- Adhesive film transparent (back glass film): made of calendered, flexible, statically adhesive vinyl film which can be removed and reused without leaving any residue. Designed for temporary application on glass, but can also be used on other smooth, clean surfaces such as metal and plastics.
When applying the product, you should wear gloves to avoid fingerprints. It is also recommended to clean the surface on which the adhesive foils are to be placed from grease, dirt or dust particles. In order to avoid bubbles during application, you should carry out wet bonding. This involves moistening the substrate with water. Then the moisture is removed by smoothing the film. This process is also known as "scraping" in technical jargon.
Note: You would like to attach your films from the inside behind glass so that your designs and text are visible and readable from the outside? Then don't forget to "mirror" your data when creating them. From the outside the lettering is then readable from the correct side! Ideal for designing car interior windows or as a shop window sign!
Automotive decals in various designs for car lettering
Automotive decals for car lettering
These robust outdoor PVC films in white are very thin but are characterised by their durability and thanks to lamination they withstand many weather conditions. According to the manufacturer, they can be used on vehicles for at least six months. The adhesive film for outdoor use is one-sided self-adhesive and cadmium-free. The acrylic adhesive is permanently elastic and permanently adhesive. To prevent strongly coloured surfaces from shining through, the adhesive is grey in colour. The following film types are available for vehicle films::
- PVC film monomer white with air channels: is a calendered film in 0.15 mm (0.1 mm + 0.05 mm laminate) with removable grey coloured adhesive and air channel structure.

The factors to consider for self-adhesive film printing
When creating the print file, please note that text and images should be at least 1.5 mm away from the edge. Also, please add a 3-mm bleed on every side that is going to be trimmed. If you would like a free-form or a special format for your self-adhesive film, please create a vector path in your print file. This should show the cutting line as a spot colour. Name the spot colour “Cutting Line” and set it to “Overprint”.
Please bear in mind that, when creating the print file, white areas will remain transparent when printing on transparent or clear film.
This is how we print your self-adhesive film
For the digital printing of your self-adhesive film, we use the tried-and-tested 4/0 CMYK four-colour process. In this way, both graphics and texts can be perfectly reproduced in all possible colours. In order to make sure that the colour adheres to the film, it is applied using UV printing. With large formats like B1, please ensure that photos and graphics have a sufficiently high resolution. If the resolution is too low, the reproduction could appear pixelated.
We are happy to assist you in selecting suitable designs and with your print files. Just give us a call or get in touch by email. Our service team will answer your questions competently and reliably.
