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.
At PrintDsign we have been selling and installing frosted window film (etching) for several years. in all that time is hasn’t changed much, but thats because it does really need to. we only use frosted window films from the worlds top manufacturers , so the quality is guaranteed and each install we carry out looks great and has excellent longevity thanks to the extra strong adhesives in the frosted window film.
Our frosted window films are opaque, so they cannot be seen though clearly. this is great for adding additional privacy to the windows in a certain room. At PrintDsign we also have the ability to cut the frosted window film (window etching) on our vinyl cutters, so we can shape the frosted window film to suit a specific design and also just add it to sections of the window. so the frosted window film can be used on the lower half of the windows to add privacy but the top of the windows can be left clear, so visibility is still possible.
Although visibility through the frosted window film isn’t possible it still allows significant light to transfer through, so unlike what happens if you add a window graphic to the windows, the light from outside of the windows can still makes its way through the window. this means you get that extra layer of privacy but without compromising natural light.
Using our frosted window film to add privacy to your office windows can great boost security as valuable items will no longer be visible from outside of your office, making them much less likely to be taken.
Although available in gold, red, green and blue our window frosting film is most often used in its silver form. our silver window etching gives a classy look when added to office spaces and restaurant windows. it is clean and modern and helps to raise up the overall look of an office once it has been installed.
At PrintDsign Manchester we have the ability to cut the frosted window film on our vinyl cutting machines, this allows us to not only shape the frosted window film but also cut out letters and turn it from a blank panel into a piece of artwork for advertising your business. all while still offering an additional layer of privacy and looking good.
We have just launched a new website to showcase our window graphics and window tinting products. All window graphics shown are available with installation throughout 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.
