Window graphics are a great way to attract attention to retail storefronts, promote special events, brand sports arenas, and even decorate glass conference rooms in your office building! Window clings can be applied onto both interior and exterior glass and can customized to suit your specific requirements. From temporary indoor window clings, to long term exterior faux etch graphics, and even one way vision graphics we have a solution to make your project a success!
How long do you want your window graphics to last?
Depending on your needs, we have material options that range from temporary graphics that can be up for just one day to more permanent materials that can last outdoors for many years.
Do your windows already have a tint or film applied?
In some cases, your window may have an aftermarket window tint or other film applied to the glass. Check with your tint or graphic installer to determine the best possible course of action based on the desired graphic and the film currently on the window.
Installation day: What is the weather like?
Extreme temperature conditions should be avoided. If the temperature is too cold, it can prevent the adhesive from sticking properly causing failure. Hot conditions in direct sunlight create extreme surface temperatures which can cause installation problems as well. Dry, moderate temperatures and low wind conditions are best for successful outdoor installations.
One-Way Vision window graphics
One-Way vision window graphics are made by using a vinyl decal material that has perforated holes in it, sort of like a window screen. It has a white printable face and an adhesive side that is black. Once installed it allows the viewer to see through the graphic from the back side. However, the image printed on the white side looks almost like a solid graphic.
Static clings for windows have been the go-to for temporary window graphics for some time. These electrostatically charged films stick onto glass without any adhesive and remove cleanly. However, they have the drawback of the static charge weakening over time, as well as difficult installation resulting in a lot of bubbles. In recent years, however, new window micro-adhesion films have come out with better performance and easier installation.

Due to the intricacies of installing window graphics, we highly recommend that you use a professional installer. We also recommend that the installer do a site survey before graphics are ordered to determine the best material to use along with additional site preparation instructions. In many cases, permits may be required for external windows based on your location. In addition, check your window manufacturer’s warranty to see what types of films or graphics may void your windows’ warranty.
