What are self-adhesive vinyl graphics?
Our self-adhesive vinyl graphics are made from a thin film. They are recommended for use on smooth, flat surfaces that have been properly prepared beforehand. The suitability for each vinyl will depend on the finish you are looking for, the application, and the amount of time intended for its use.
How do I install a window graphic?
- 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 into the correct position.
- Use a squeegee to gently remove any liquid and air bubbles, whilst taking care to not damage or stretch the vinyl in the process.
- Allow the vinyl to dry for 24 hours.
We also offer a professional installation service which is ideal for large or complicated wall graphic designs, and all of our work is guaranteed for 2 years.
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 millimetres larger than you require in order to account for any surface deficiencies. You can then simply trim any excess that there may be once installed. We also advise that there may be up to a 3mm size tolerance on your finished vinyl. This can be due to a variety of factors such as trimming, temperatures, and lamination.
How big can you print your vinyl window graphics?
We can print any size you require, but it may be split into sections. How wide we can print in one piece depends on the material being used. The roll widths (at industry standard) are as follows:
- Clear Self Adhesive Vinyl - 1350mm
- White Self Adhesive Vinyl - 1350mm
- Perforated Window Graphics - 1350mm
- Easy Dot Repositionable Vinyl - 1350mm
Please leave us a note if you have any preference on how we split your vinyl.
What is Clear Self Adhesive Vinyl?
Clear Self Adhesive Vinyl is a transparent vinyl that when printed will remain transparent through the ink. No white ink will be printed, so any white areas on your artwork will be clear.
What is White Self Adhesive Vinyl?
White Self Adhesive Vinyl is an opaque vinyl for a print with no transparency. Any clear areas on your artwork will be white unless contour cut.
What are Perforated Window Graphics?
Perforated Window Vinyl is made from a perforated vinyl that you can see through from one side but not the other. This makes it perfect for advertising on areas where privacy is wanted, such as on vehicle windows or office buildings. The perforations are approximately 1mm in diameter, with approximately 5mm of vinyl before the next perforation.
What is Easy Dot Repositionable Vinyl?
Easy Dot Repositionable Vinyl is an opaque low-tack vinyl that allows for the graphic to be easily applied and easily removed. Suitable for short term uses only.
Can self-adhesive vinyl graphics be used outdoors?
Yes! Our vinyl graphics are weatherproof and printed with waterproof and scratch-resistant eco-solvent inks.
Why use white-backed vinyl graphics?
White-backed vinyl graphics are great if you want to cover up the surface where you are sticking the graphic (such as a scratched window or even an old rigid-board sign). White vinyl graphics are also the better choice when you want to print in full, solid colour without transparency showing through.
How do I design a window vinyl graphic?
The first thing to decide when ordering a window graphic is whether you will be displaying it positioned on the inside or the outside of your window. If you decide to display from within, then you will need to select the “Reverse Print” option so it appears the correct way around when viewed from outside. You will also have to decide whether you want a backing for your vinyl graphic, which will block visibility of the surface behind it.
Can you custom cut an image?
Graphics can be contour cut to any shape from an .ai file containing your cut path. If you're unable to provide a cut path, please select contact us.
