Our Top Window Graphics Tips

Window graphics have come a long way from the corner gas station. And while those bottling and promotional graphics are still in high demand, using window space to apply signage and brand messaging or even create a sense of privacy have inspired a new batch of window graphic materials for ease in installation and replacement. Here are a few of our top window graphic tips:

To Perf or Not to Perf?

Perforated window graphic film, such as LexJet Simple Perforated Window Vinyl (70/30), allows you to print on 70 percent of the surface, while 30 percent of it is tiny perforations, or holes. This allows for excellent image reproduction and shading coming into the window from outside, while people inside the building can still see out the window, through the perforations. Since this product is mounted outside, we suggest LexJet’s Optically Clear Cast Laminate for extra protection. Window perf is also available in 60/40 vinyl.

On the Inside: LexJet’s New Repositionable 60/40 Film for Window Graphics

There are a lot of good reasons to apply graphics to the inside of a window facing out toward the street … Restrictive, fascistic sign codes, as extra protection from vandalistic passersby and for the ease of a sheltered indoor installation.

Window graphics that are applied on the inside of the windowLexJet’s new FaceMount Perforated Window Grip makes these inside window applications even easier. The 60/40 perforated film (60 percent printable area, 40 percent open area pattern) has a unique low-tack grip adhesive that’s repositionable and easy to remove with little to no residue after it’s removed.

You print to the window grip adhesive, which has an ink-receptive coating, and apply the graphic to the inside of the window with the adhesive and image facing out. The polyester liner ensures a smooth application since it helps prevent the film from tunneling and curling during installation.

Once the film is applied it will stick to the glass for up to a year. The 60/40 perforation pattern provides image quality and clarity when viewed from the outside and is see-through from the inside looking out.

LexJet FaceMount Perforated Window Grip is designed only for use with low-solvent and solvent printers and is available in 54″ x 82′ and 27″ x 12′ rolls. For more information and to order, contact a LexJet customer specialist at 800-453-9538.
