The technical term is Photo Degradation. Some objects may be more prone to fading, such as dyed fabrics and watercolors. Other objects, like our outdoor silkscreen stickers reflect the light more, which makes them less prone to fading. But over time and with direct exposure to ultraviolet light, eventually all colors fade. This is true for cars, space shuttles and stickers too.
All of our stickers are waterproof & weather proof! We print the most durable stickers in the industry.
Silkscreen sticker printing (and especially our silkscreen stickers) are the best possible quality if you are looking for durability.
Vinyl stickers on their own aren’t waterproof. When you laminate a vinyl sticker it will then become waterproof. Laminate is an overlay with a layer of plastic which is applied to protect the vinyl from the elements. Knowing a vinyl sticker will be used outside, we will laminate it to increase its lifespan.

A laminated vinyl sticker will be protected from several different elements including water, sun and oil. Vinyl which hasn’t been laminated would roughly last for a year outside. Laminated vinyl can last for up to 7 years outside. A huge difference.
A single sticker placed on the north side of a stop sign will hold its rich color for at least 5 years, usually much longer. The same sticker stuck to the south facing side of the same stop sign, where it is exposed to direct sunlight for all day, will begin fading much earlier. Under these rare circumstances, this can happen as quickly as 8 or 10 months from initial placement.
Always try to make order vinyl stickers from reputed sticker printing company like Bade Newby Display, which is the best in the printing of car window stickers, vinyl stickers, floor stickers, parking permit stickers and much more.

We don’t know of any other sticker printers who have such an aggressive strategy for combating weather. That said, over time, especially when placed in direct south facing sunlight, stickers will begin to fade. Some colors fade faster than others. Yellow tends to be the first color to fade, followed by magenta, then cyan and although it will take a very long time, finally black.
Each full-color outdoor sticker is silkscreened onto our custom vinyl material with 4 generous coats of ink, and 3 thick passes of 100% UV protection clear gloss.
