Curious – Wallpaper

We have worked with Cheshire based bridal shop The Case of the Curious Bride for several years now, we have worked with them to offer renewed shop signage, printed flyers, and lots of other print/signage products. On this occasion we supplied them with some bespoke patterned wall coverings for a large wedding fair they exhibited at in Manchester city centre.

Due to the supplied wall panels of the exhibition centre we could not offer a printed wall wrap or custom printed wallpaper for this project as it would not stick to the walls. So we created a faux wallpaper by printing the bespoke wallpaper pattern onto textured wallpaper and using velcro tape to hang it on the walls.

In addition to printing up the wall coverings we also created the bespoke wallpaper pattern using the companies logo and other subtle elements to give things a vintage look.

All in all the banner wall coverings worked well and helped create a sectioned off area for the bridal shop to exhibit in. And as a bonus the wall coverings are totally reusable on future exhibitions.

Watersons VW Ups- Fleet of 3

We have carried out dozens of jobs over the years for Watersons Independent Estate Agents in Hale, Cheshire. On this occasion they required some branding to be added to their fleet of VW Up cars. They supplied PrintDsign with 3 identical white VW Ups and we added bespoke branding to all sides of the cars, allowing the Watersons Sales staff to advertise the company as they are driving to and from property viewings in the Cheshire areas.

Window Frosting – The Benefits

Privacy for office or home windows

the great benefit of the frosted window vinyls we offer at printdsign is that they can offer privacy to glass panel areas (be they windows or office partitions) whilst still allowing a large percentage of light transference through the glass. so unlike a window tint the window frosting vinyls give privacy to the glass windows without knocking out a large amount of light.

Reflective finish

another great benefit is that window tint films work using light transmittance. many of the window tint films we offer at printdsign have a reflective finish when viewed external , for privacy. unfortunately due to the way the window tint films work this means that the reflective privacy finish of the window tint film will only work if the light source outside of the window is stronger than the light source behind the glass.

The difference between window tints and window frosting

during regular daylight hours, the brightness of the outside world is usually overall brighter than the internal lighting inside a home or office. so the window tint films works well and offer a reflective privacy effect when viewed from outside. but after daylight hours when the sun has gone down, the external light source is usually less than the internal light source inside a home or office. at this time the reflective privacy effect of the window tints no longer works as the light transmittance is working the opposite way to what was required during the day.

Do you need window frosting or window tints?

this is where window frosting and window etching vinyls come in. by using a window frosting instead of a window tint you can ensure that privacy is given to the windows or partitions at all times, no matter if the light sources are brighter behind the glass. the trade off for this aded privacy is that the windows are now opaque and cannot be clearly seen through , but this the only way to guarantee privacy for your windows at all times.

Window Frosting / Window Block Outs in Manchester and Cheshire

PrintDsign offers complete window block out service using frosted window vinyl films.

are you due to put on an event that is private?

is your open plan glass fronted building limiting your ability to keep your party private?

why not allow us to frost out your windows to block out exterior visibly into your building. if you are having a private party or secret event blocking out your windows is a  must.

the big advantage of our frosted block out window vinyls is that the frosted finish limits visibility through the glass but does not limit light transfer from the outside. So even though the windows are blocked out , natural light can still enter the building.

we can usually install with just a weeks notice and can also undertake the removal once the event has finished.

for bars and restaurants our window frosting service can allow you to offer a bespoke private party to cater for high end clients who request these types of things. We have installed window frosting block outs on several Manchester restaurants for special events such as private parties for football clubs and international blue chip companies.

for car dealerships our window block out service allows you to limit visibility into your showroom for a set period of time to assist with bringing exclusive vehicles into the showroom, or hosting private invite only events that you don’t want the general public to view.

in the past we have installed window block out frosting/etching for luxury car dealerships across Manchester and Cheshire.

our expert installation team can install the frosted window block out vinyl within a few hours, leaving a high quality fit and finish every time. our frosted window block out vinyls can be removed almost as quickly as they can be installed, with no signs left behind, returning the windows to their original state.

having a window frosting block out installed by Digital Revolution is a very extreme way to limit visibility into retail space however there are several ways to install the window frosting vinyls to allow parts to be removed. Allowing sections of the window frosting block outs to be installed gives you the option to leave sections of the window clear, so that if the event is over a few days/nights you can still have some visibility into the windows the the time between the events. Our installation team can install the bulk of the etching window vinyl before the first event, remove the section of frosted window vinyl between the events and reinstall the frosted window etching film before et next event.

as a general rule our frosted window films are silver however we do have the ability to install other types of frosted window vinyls that are available in other colours including gold, red, blue, green and yellow. If there isn’t a colour in our frosted window etching vinyl range then we can also print directly to the frosted window film. this gives us the ability to custom print the frosted window films to match your company colours or be completed branded for your envoy. we are not only limited to printing block colours with our frosted window films, we can also print logo, images, text and pretty much anything you want on there. if you event is scheduled to take place for more than a few days it may be best to brand up your frosted window block out to stop it from giving the impression that your building is closed.

Office Wall Graphics in Manchester for Harrington Brooks

Wall graphics are great for adding a little bit of personalisation to a home but they can work even better in commercial environments. Here we have a recent install of printed wall graphics at an office space in Manchester.

Using the companies existing logo and branding artwork from printed documents we have created a couple of feature walls to brighten up the modern office space. Not only do the wall graphics add more colour to the white walls but they help to boost the companies profile with both visitors and internal staff.  For visitors to the office, wall graphics add presence to the office space and create a form of personalisation that makes a real impact. For the staff in the office the wall graphics can also have an impact on them, by adding the companies branding to the office walls the company looks more engaging and the office feels more like a creative place to work, not just some office, like any other one across the UK.

 

To create these wall graphics we arranged a meeting with the client, measured up the walls and discussed their ideas about what they wanted. after this we created visuals of the wall graphics using Photoshop and super-imposed the companies branding onto images of the blank walls. once agreed we printed up the wall graphics on self adhesive vinyls and applied them to the office walls. these wall graphics have an outdoor life of 5 years, so internally the should last much longer.  Once the wall graphics have come to the end of their life they can simply be peeled of the office walls.
