We Can Help with Window Graphics and Frosting in Vancouver WA

By | Frosted Vinyl Windows, Window Graphics | No Comments

If window graphics were to choose a song to sing at a local karaoke bar, they’d probably go with “If You Don’t Know Me by Now” by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. Sure, we all know that window graphics prefer soul music, but they’d mostly choose the song because you really ought to know about window graphics by now. We’re not giving up hope, though. We think you can still know about them. That’s why we wrote today’s blog about window graphics and frosting in Vancouver, WA.

Window Graphics: Getting Back to the Basics

At their most basic, window graphics – also referred to as window wraps, decals, lettering, and stickers – consist of images and text printed on top-quality vinyl using our state of the art digital printer. There are a number of variations on this theme. For instance, window cling has a low-tack adhesive that makes it repositionable and removable. And, perforated window vinyl consists of thousands of tiny holes that allow you to see through the vinyl without having to send away for those cool X-ray specs.

If you think that window graphics are only able to display your business name, we sincerely hope you have someone else doing the creative thinking for your organization. They’re regularly the first chance you have to educate, market, and inform consumers about what you have for sale.

Where My Math Nerds at?

Let’s take a moment to look at the numbers. FedEx recently conducted a study where they found that more than three-quarters of consumers have gone into a store they’d never visited before because they had sweet window graphics, banners, or signs that grabbed their attention.

The same study also revealed the dark side of poor signage. In fact, 52 percent of shoppers who spot a poorly-made or misspelled sign will avoid a store. Fortunately, our mighty sign makers have foolproof systems in place to make sure your graphics look cooler than the other side of the pillow.

What about the Frosting?

Whereas your standard window graphics feature colorful, high-resolution photos or other images, frosting was a popular way of lightening the tips of your hair in the ‘90s. Um, my supervisor is telling me that we’re supposed to talk about window frosting, also known as etched vinyl or frosted vinyl window graphics. These products use vinyl films to mimic the look of etched glass.

Frosted vinyl is ideal for modern offices that have tons of interior windows. For example, have you ever been in a meeting and had your coworkers kind of just staring through the windows to see what was going on? You could moon them, but if you’re meeting with a client, that could be a turn-off or a turn-on. Either way, it’s bad news bears. Instead, use frosted vinyl to add a level of privacy. We can even incorporate your logo into the etched vinyl to give your branding a little boost.

This was just a primer on window graphics and frosting in Vancouver, WA. So, if you have more questions, we won’t make fun of you. We’re more than happy to help! Contact Specialty Graphic Solutions today for a free consultation!

What Can You Do with Frosted Vinyl Window Graphics in Vancouver WA?

This blog entry would be a lot shorter if the question was “What can’t you do with frosted vinyl window graphics in Vancouver, WA?” About the only thing we’ve been able to come up with is that frosted vinyl window graphics probably can’t get Brad and Angelina back together, no matter how hard we try.

But enough about the important current events, how much would you pay a professional glass etcher to etch your glass if a professional glass etcher could etch glass? This isn’t a quaint riddle when you’re shelling out thousands of dollars for that distinguished look. Fortunately, the mighty sign makers at Specialty Graphic Solutions have a tool up their sleeves that can give you this look at a fraction of the cost of bringing in a glass worker.

What Are Frosted Vinyl Window Graphics?

Also referred to as etched vinyl, frosted vinyl window graphics are basically a hot new vinyl film that’s designed to mimic etched glass. This adhesive film is designed to work on glass doors, windows, mirrors, and more. While you may already be excited and calling us up for this vinyl, please let us finish. You may be interested in knowing that we can even incorporate your branding into these graphics using our precise plotter.

Uses for Frosted Vinyl Window Graphics

For those of you who have no clue why anyone would ever want frosted vinyl, we’ve put together these useful ideas:

Hide Your Dirty Secrets

Okay, so you don’t need to have dirty secrets to want a little privacy. With the ever increasing popularity of floor-to-ceiling glass panes surrounding meeting rooms, it can be a bit distracting trying to meet with a client while nosy Nellies are looking in through the windows to see what’s going on. Sure, it’s nice to get plenty of natural light in these modern conference rooms, but you also need privacy.

Thankfully, frosted vinyl window graphics can give you this degree of privacy while still letting the light in. With just a four-foot band of etched vinyl, you can have all the privacy you need. Or, you might consider geometric shapes or fanciful graphics.

Boost Your Brand Recognition

As mentioned above, we can incorporate your branding into your frosted vinyl. We simply remove your logo, slogan, contact information, or whatever message you want visitors to see from the sheet of vinyl. This is the ideal solution for your glass entrance doors or if you happen to have glass dividers in your space.

Create a Fancy Pants Look

You can use frosted vinyl to beautify even cheap mirrors you may have in your facility. Even those metal “mirrors” you find in rest stop bathrooms could be improved with the etched vinyl look. If you’re reading this WSDOT, call us!

You can also make your window panes look classy. In fact, frosted vinyl is the number one way to make your retail store windows look like they’re covered with snowflakes during the holiday shopping season.

These are just a few of the ways you can use frosted vinyl window graphics in Vancouver, WA. If you’ve come up with something that frosted vinyl can’t be used for or if you’re interested in taking advantage of these films, contact SGS today for a free consultation!
