Even if your sticker is made of glossy laminated paper, chances are that it may not be waterproof. Such stickers turn to mush once exposed to water and are suitable to be used indoors. On the other hand, vinyl stickers are made of PVC (poly vinyl chloride), which never fades away from exposure to water and other weather conditions. So, if you plan to use stickers for outdoors, it is suggested that you stick with vinyl. They are excellent for marketing and promotional material.
