    Is there a printable clear vinyl that can be applied to an exterior brick wall. The intent is to see the actual brick. I have used 3M in the past on a brick wall but the vinyl is opaque white.

    I doubt there is... also, unless it's white bricks, whatever you print to it won't really be visible.
    Better to take a picture of the bricks and incorporate that into your print design & print onto white vinyl
    that's meant to be applied to brick.

    extremely doubtful.
    any clear vinyl that would have adhesive suitable for a brick application.... would be so "not-clear" by the time you applied it that you wouldn't see the brick anyways.

    take a photo of the brick wall and use that for a background for your sign, print on white
