Standard & Custom Stickers and Decals Made in Calgary Alberta. (403.454.5526 to inquire or place an order).

All our 'sticky-back' vinyl products are manufactured with consideration towards an easy installation process, that is why our backing paper (also known as 'liner', or 'silicone paper') around the actual sticker/decal is machine-cut and squared with the graphics, so when positioning our products during installation, the edges will be easy to align with any surrounding surface straignt lines (landmarks).

WHY CHOOSE US: When the vinyl stickers are cut on contour (i.e. when their outer edge is round, oval, star, arror, or irregular shaped), we ALWAYS weed the excess off, leaving only the proper pieces. Other manufacturers don't take the time to do this for you!

KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING: THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A "STICKER" AND A "DECAL" is that the former is printed on a background (either white or colour), while the latter is cut using a cutting plotter, and doesn't have a background around the actual graphics (example: storefront lettering).

Examples of STICKERS we manufacture:

Round (circular), full color digital printed, bumper sticker type. We accept orders with quantities starting as low as 50 pcs. If a print-ready file is not supplied, we can help with creating the design (at extra cost).

Square, fleet safety stickers which can be applied directly onto the vehicle's body, grouped. Types: 'First Aid Kit Inside', 'Spill Kit Inside', Fire Extinguisher Inside', 'Walk Around Vehicle', 'No Smoking', 'No Cellphones'

Polygon-shaped, for fleet vehicles (on doors). Out-most ooloured areas are surrounded by a uniform 6mm (1/4") inch white contour (aka offset cutting), for improved visibility on dark vehicles.

Rectangular shaped. Typically simple, one colour printing on background which can be solid color or white, ordered in large batches (over 1000 pcs.) are done through 'screen-printing' process.

WHY CHOOSE US: We offer 4 tiers of adhesiveness of stickers / decals: 1.) Easily removable 'Low-tack' for temporary markings such as logo decals on rental fleet vehicles. 2.) 'Normal' stickiness for most applications on gloss smooth surfaces. 3.) 'High-tack' or extra sticky for more demanding conditions, challenging materials, or rough / porous receiving surfaces (e.g. floor decals). 4.) With no glue at all, such as static cling window stickers, or magnetic decals for car doors (i.e. short-term advertising solutions).

Feature: Printed on metallic color vinyl. Suitable for dark colors text. Custom cut with rounded corners.

Feature: Writeable area (write directly on the sticker). Note all excess vinyl is weeded (removed).

Feature: Long-term usage (safety course orientation stickers good for multiple years through clever design).

Re-usable magnetic decals (car door magnets), full colour printing with solvent inks + UV overlamination.

WHY CHOOSE US: We offer 3 quality tiers for every budget: 1.) 'Basic', waterproof, no protective clear coating or overlamination (can be contour cut also). 2.) 'Premium', waterproof plus resistant to solvents, oils, pain thinners (won't smudge), longer lasting, outdoor rated. 3.) 'Premium reflective', for hi-visibility requirements, typically used for emergency vehicles, or outdoor signs that needs to be noticed fast when driving towards them. NOTE: Other vendors only offer type 1). We recommend our tier 2) quality always which costs more but it is a much better product (we actually employ 3 machinery equipment and 5 stage process, as opposed to only one for tier 1). Tier 2) quality decals / stickers have a life expectancy of 6-10 years, as opposed to 2 years for the 'basic'.

Examples of DECALS we manufacture:

NEW: We do physical distancing floor decals. Small batch orders welcome (over 10 pcs.)

Manufacturing of specialized reflective decals for emergency vehicles.

Custom vinyl decals (cut, no background) for interior decoration, on wall, glass, etc.

Adhesive lettering, pre-masked, ready for easy installation on smooth surfaces.

Our products are used in various applications:

Custom, large, heavy-duty usage, long term decals for equipment manufacturers, Oil & Gas sector, premium quality outdoor rated.

Architectural design decals, without background, all cut-vinyl, typically installed on glass windows and doors in schools, hospitals, hotels, airport.

Specialty vinyl for plotting cutter processing, with final graphics pre-masked, then installed onto wall as a mural (transfer paper is removed last).

Cut vinyl decals for vehicles often called 'car wrap' although letters / logos are cut, no background (not a vinyl 'skin' covering the vehicle body).

Retail and grocey stores require printed vinyl for marketing, and we offer that, plus installation services.

Businesses use our perforated vinyl window covering with dual purposes: to advertise, and to block seeing inside (while still allowing to see outside).

We produce custom printed wrap vinyl film, which can be used for commercial vehicle wrapping (DIY, or we can install it for you at extra cost).

Our company can tackle your custom project, and bring your ideas to a visual fruition! Wall graphic murals are one of our specialties.

Alberta Decals offers vinyl installation services at competitive rates. Our capabilities include printing, cutting, and installation of window frosting, vehicle wraps, wall murals, storefront graphics, floor decals, and more.

  • F.A.Q. Frequently Asked Questions (click on the '+' to expand)

    QUESTION: Other vendors advertise lower prices, should I be concerned?
    ANSWER: Typically in this industry "you get what you pay for". If the price is too low, such concern is justified. WE ARE AWARE THAT unscupulous vendors sell non-laminated vinyl products for "long term applications", which is wrong. We only offer that option for short term applications. Also, our printing process is very special: it is thermo-printing (vinyl material is heated during the printing process, to open its pores to allow the ink to penetrate deep). We use ECO-SOLVENT inks (which are are good balance between longevity and caring for the environment). Some vendors use Latex printers, and the products are not as durable as ours, because the inks don't 'eat into the plastic' like the solvent-based ones, this is a known fact in our industry.
    QUESTION: Can I apply the sticker(s) / decals (s) myself?
    ANSWER: Yes!
    QUESTION: Does the type and condition of the receiving surface influence the installation, or affects durability?
    ANSWER:
    1)The type of surface greatly influences the strength with which the product adheres to it:
    - The moro rough / porous the surface, the less it will stick to it.
    - Examples: Our 'regular' stickers adhere good on glass, painted body section of a vehicle. They will not be suitable for certain plastics surfaces (matte type), or for floors or concrete. For the latter applications, we suggest going with our 'high-tack' products.
    2)The condition of the surface is also a huge influencing factor in the longevity of the bond beween the vinyl and respective surface:
    - Example: Workers in the oil and gas asked us if we have a "sticker product that can stick to greasy pipes". Such product does not exist, unfortunately, and cutting corners has proved never to be be a good approach: receiving surface MUST be thoroughly degreased (use water with detergent), then cleaned (use water with alcohol 70/30 min. proportion, test the surface first, do not rub hard to remove paint, etc.), then wiped dry. ONLY AFTER THESE THREE STEPS, EXECUTED PROPERLY, PROCEED TO PEEL OFF THE BACKING AND INSTALL THE STICKER OR DECAL
    - For non-flat surfaces (curved, with waives, bends, indentations, etc), use a heat gun to 'work the vinyl' onto them. The installtion process is challenging, but there are many YouTube videos available (or hire a professional vinyl installer).

    QUESTION: Can exposure to a lot of sun be an issue?
    - Yes. UV rays are detrimental to ink colour pigments, and will cause the images, colours to fade in time.
    - Our 'premium' produts have a clear protective overlamination applied on top of the printed surface, thus making it a second surface. The ovelaminate film products we use have UV inhibitor in them, so the life expectancy is 3-5 times longer for any decals or stickers that have over-lamination layer (i.e. our 'premium' product).
    QUESTION: Do you ship?
    ANSWER:Yes, we ship to all provinces in Canada. Shipping costs are extra, but we do offer free shipping for orders over $300 net.
