About Window Graphics
Window and Door Graphics can add a professional appearance to most offices. Door Graphics are most commonly printed on standard vinyl replicating the company’s logo and laminating the print. This ensures that the colors on the logo don’t fade. Just the logo is cut out and that’s all that is applied to the door. This allows people to see through the door.
Perforated Window Graphics
Window graphics have an additional option of printing on perforated window film. The film comes in a variety of coverages ranging from 65%/35% to 50%/50%. The percentages indicate how much is film and how much are the holes. Most of the windows that we do, we use 65%/35% because this gives us the most amount of vinyl to carry the design. Window perf, if laminated, can last for years. Window perf should always be installed when the temperature is above 50 degrees. Anything less than that, and you risk the adhesive not setting up and the print peeling prematurely.
Window and Door Graphics FAQ
Are there any municipal restrictions on window graphics?
Most municipalities have restriction on the amount of space that can be covered with window graphics. Perforated window film, in most municipalities, can cover from 30-100% of the individual window panes. Depending on the type of window film we use, even if we cover the entire window, it may only result in 50% coverage because of the perforation.
Is it best to use printed graphics or standard cut while vinyl for door graphics?
It depends on your preference. We have found that logos that include multiple colors lend themselves to a printed graphic. Designs that focus on a name and contact info lend themselves to a simple, cut white vinyl.
I have graphics on my window/door and they seem to have shrunk. Why?
This happens often. Remember that vinyl is very thin and subject to heating (expansion) and cooling (contraction) many times in the course of a single day. When you add the extremes of Wisconsin weather, it isn’t a surprise that the graphics shrink over time. We have found that by laminating the graphics the amount of shrinkage is reduced.
