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.
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.
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.
