Adhesive vinyl (sticker vinyl) is a thin flexible material with a pressure-sensitive adhesive that can be cut in any design and applied to all kinds of smooth, hard surfaces.
Adhesive vinyl is an excellent material to personalize a lot of things, from simple items such as plastic cups to car and house windows.
Cricut adhesive vinyl is classified into two different groups; permanent and removable vinyl, and in those categories, you’ll find unlimited colors variety.
If you are planning on making something for indoor use (and not exposed to a dishwasher or harsh indoor conditions), this type of material will be your best friend.
It works beautifully on walls and doors. You can design and cut gorgeous monogram designs and decorate your bedroom, bathrooms, nursery, etc.
Walls are a perfect example of using removable vinyl; if you are renting, you don’t want to damage the paint of your wall when you are removing your design. And even if you own the place, removable vinyl is the best way to keep the integrity of your paint, in case you change your mind.
Permanent vinyl is perfect for decals you intend to use in outdoor areas and that are exposed to the elements such as water, heat, cold, etc.
Designs for outdoor flower pots, car windows, and mugs (that you wash regularly) are the perfect surfaces you can use permanent vinyl on.
Please noted Mugs made with permanent vinyl are NOT dishwasher safe. If your dishwasher is not that powerful, you may be ok, but if you have a super edgy (good for you) dishwasher, the vinyl may come off.This article about Is adhesive vinyl dishwasher safe will help you a lot.
