I'm not completely surprised at the price quoted. In the UK the price varies a lot but is never cheap. Of course we in the UK know nothing about general prices in Canada but I'd guess that quote was too high but a price around $100 might be expected.

Vistaprint online shows that a print for a window decal ( inside installed ) would be $25 + tax but they only list white or transparent as backgrounds on order sheet.
Their online ordering also sets the image to fit the page and allows you to size it from there but without anything to indicate outcome size.
In this case size does matter!
I will be trying to contact them today.

you could always add your own mirror finish to the back of the vista print clear version :!?!:

having had a look at their web site you would need to increase the size of your design by adding a border round your needed size to make the size up to 60cm by 60cm, then remove the border when it arrives leaving you with the correct size

Going with the transparent vinyl at a cost of $31.05 total.
Still will need to add mirroring.
Attached is the image I used to order as a PDF and another as a JPEG.
It has the proper transparency, the canvas has been enlarged for print on a 18" x 24" sheet and the image is placed to the side a bit on the canvas so the image isn't cut off by the printer.

Not a good picture due to lighting in the man cave.
The print job could have been better since I had it done at Vistaprint.
Still need to do the mirror background.
That will have to wait for warmer weather because I'm going to use the spray on.

Just an update on how this has held up.
It is out in an unheated man cave so it is subject to hot, cold, damp or dry conditions.
Been out there a couple years now and has held up quite well.
I thought it might pull loose a bit but it still looks new.
I'm quite happy with how it turned out.
The people I've had over have never seen one of these but none suspected this was not original.

Thanks for the update. Did you go with the mirror spray or a mirror backing?
