Want to make your own decals for your office, car, or brand? Self-adhesive vinyl sheets are perfect for creating signs and logos, indoor or outdoor advertising graphics, and wall and window decor. Self-adhesive vinyl can be cut into a variety of shapes and can stick to most flat and curved surfaces including plastic, metal, glass, painted wood, aluminum, and some painted concrete or plaster walls. Permanent vinyl is well-suited for use on surfaces that will see a lot of washing or weathering, but it may damage surfaces if you try to remove it. Removable vinyl is best indoor wall decals and other temporary applications. Browse our selection below to find the best self-adhesive vinyl sheets for your project.
1. Vinyl Ease Removable Vinyl
Vinyl Ease makes a versatile 48-pack of colored 12-by-12-inch sheets. The matte, self-adhesive vinyl panels come in 20 different shades, with extra black and white sheets. Note that these are non-printable, and are meant to be used with any craft cutter, puncher, or vinyl sign cutter. Unless you leave the vinyl in the same place for a very long time, it will be removable and reusable for many uses.

This starter pack includes the gamut of Oracal’s colors, providing 1 sheet in each of the 61 different shades including metallics (although if a color is out of stock, they may include a repeat of a popular color). When applied correctly, the vinyl remains vibrant and in place for at least 4 years.
