What is frosted window film?
Frosted window film is a special type of window treatment that provides a smooth, translucent appearance. Unlike perforated vinyl, frosted vinyl for windows allows light to pass through while reducing visibility, making it perfect for advertising where privacy is desired, such as on vehicle windows or office buildings.
Where can I use frosted window Film?
You can use our frosted window film on any window indoors or outdoors. As frosted window vinyl reduces visibility whilst still allowing light to filter through, it is ideal for enhancing privacy on office windows or other areas where discretion is wanted.
How do I install window frosting film?
Follow these steps for perfect frosted window vinyl installation:
- Firstly, make sure the surface you're using is clean of dirt, dust, grease, and any form of contamination. You can do this by mixing some warm water and washing-up liquid to wipe the area clean.
- Wet the surface area where your vinyl is going.
- Peel off the backing layer of your vinyl and position it how you want it. The wet surface will allow you to easily move your vinyl around and place it in the correct position.
- Use a squeegee to gently remove any liquid and air bubbles, taking care not to damage or stretch the vinyl in the process.
- Allow the vinyl to dry for 24 hours.

How do I order the correct size?
Simply measure the area you wish to fill and enter this on our website using your preferred unit of measurement. Please note, it is advisable to order your vinyl a few millimeters larger than you require to account for any surface deficiencies. You can then simply trim any excess that may be once installed. We also advise that there may be up to a 3mm size tolerance on your finished vinyl due to factors such as trimming, temperatures, and lamination.
Will the window graphic block light?
Frosted window vinyl graphics allow light to pass through but give the glass a translucent appearance. They can be excellent for reducing glare and heat while maintaining some level of natural light. Your artwork, size of the vinyl, lighting, and location of installation can also affect the performance of frosted vinyl.
