Window Graphics Have Come A Long Way From Hand Painted Images Adhesive Window Film From 3M
New products for use as window graphics are now offered by PrintB3. Extensive testing of a new transparent film designed for easy installation is complete. The film features an adhesive which is repositionable by the installer. These window graphics may be installed by store personal without depending on a professional installer. Air bubbles are released through channels in the adhesive in the window film. This eliminates the need for special skills or tools to apply these window graphics.
Key Factors in new window graphics applications:
Overcome limitations on signage on the outside of a building
Restrict or allow “see through”—enabling privacy or visibility
Clear films vs. expensive perforated film for “see through”
White inks for spot color on transparent films
New gas flow film simplifies installation
Self install for chain store campaigns
Removable films do not leave a residue.
Often window graphics were applied to the outside of the storefront windows using white vinyl substrates either perforated or solid. When see through from inside was desirable the perforated films were used. Window graphics applied to outside surfaces have several undesirable features. The city or town may have severe restrictions of outside signage limiting the size and duration of the display. This may mean little return for an expensive installation. The durability and exposure to damage is also a concern.
Inside application of your window graphics can eliminate the signage restriction placed on the same display outdoors. The window graphic is not subject to the same wear and tear as an outdoor display. Installation of the window graphics can be done without interfering without interfering with site traffic, and in an environment more amenable to both the product applied and the installer.
