Why Static Cling Vinyl is unsustainable, but we have the solution “CLINGZ”

Here at Print4UK we provide clients with various techniques and substrates that they can use in their marketing campaigns. One of our personal favourites are CLINGZ. Don’t have a clue what CLINGZ are, Check out this blog below on our CLINGZ to find out how they could benefit your marketing campaign.


  1. CLINGZ is NOT THE SAME as static cling vinyl. Static cling vinyl will only stick to smooth or glossy surfaces and is usually used on glass facing out. CLINGZ will stick on BOTH sides to virtually any surface.
  2. Static cling vinyl is a PVC based product (bad) whereas, CLINGZ is made from polypropylene and is a recyclable (good).
  3. CLINGZ is really easy to apply whereas, static cling vinyl usually require wet application. 
  4. CLINGZ is damage free on removal whereas static cling vinyl often leaves ink on the glass or surface
  5. CLINGZ is available in white and clear
  6. CLINGZ can be die cut and kiss cut
  7. CLINGZ is also available on a versaliner. This is a full contact backer and makes running sheets easier (when printing offset litho), but is great for clients that wish to insert the finished CLINGZ into envelopes or magazines. 
  8. CLINGZ can be printed in a variety of ways including litho for short and long runs, variable data or where you have many designs and wide format digital for large sizes and/or one-offs and short runs. 
  9. CLINGZ is available in rolls up to 1372mm wide and can be printed by any length.
  10. We are the EXCLUSIVE distributor of CLINGZ in the UK and Eire.


CLINGZ is a unique electrostatic printable film that ‘clings’ on both sides to virtually any clean surface without the need for tape, tacks or adhesives. CLINGZ is unrivalled in terms of its versatility and range of applications as it will stick to brick, wood, plastic, metal, glass, marble, vinyl and many other surfaces!


A number of organisations we work with incorporate CLINGZ as their flagship print marketing material because it aids in meeting a number of corporate goals:

  1. Environmental responsibility – Unlike Static Cling Vinyl, CLINGZ is PVC free and 100% recyclable allowing organisations to use it for their print marketing projects without negatively affecting their sustainability goals.
  2. Cost control – CLINGZ is a premium quality, adhesive free graphic and therefore (unlike a number of directly comparable alternatives) provides peace of mind that campaigns will not incur any unexpected costs as a result of damaged surfaces. Also, due to its ease of application, the full project cost of campaigns undertaken using CLINGZ often works out to be significantly less than using direct alternatives as professional installation is rarely required (to see a demonstration take a look at our CLINGZ Application Video on our videos tab).
  3. Increased sales – The versatility of CLINGZ allows it to be placed in unusual and arresting locations promoting interaction with your campaign. Businesses are able to drive brand engagement by placing their marketing message exactly where they want it.
