Got a question about our process? Find out here

What resolution should my artworks be?

When printing, the optimum print resolution for digital printers is 300 PPI. Blurring and pixelization will occur if a file is designed with a resolution less than 300 PPI. You should not, however, design with a resolution more than 300 PPI. There will be no change in print quality as far as the eye can perceive. It will also significantly increase the size of your file (increasing file upload/transfer time).

We usually suggest printing 300 PPI drawings, however we understand that you may not have the capacity to modify your designs. If you are unable to print your files at 300 PPI, you will need to take certain steps to guarantee that a lesser resolution will work for you.

Before you begin creating your file, we suggest that you set the resolution in your graphics editor (for example, Photoshop) to 300 PPI. Blurring/pixelation will still occur if the resolution is increased after the start.

See for yourself by visiting one of our New York offices.

Do you check the artworks before printing?

Before printing, our staff double-checks all of the work. If we run into any issues with the files, we’ll let you know and show you how to alter the format. Please keep in mind that color and size mode conversions will be done automatically without any input from you.

We examine the drawings throughout the analysis.

– if the files are in one of the acceptable file types (PDF, JPG, TIFF, EPS or PS).
– if the file provided is greyscale (only if you have purchased a color print)
– if the file is the proper size (otherwise, we will scale your work to the required size, however this may result in a loss in quality). There will be no extra bleeding added to the procedure).
– if drill lines have been defined
– if the correct fonts have been included in the file

Why do my artworks require bleed?

All files should have a 2mm bleed on either side to guarantee that there are no white spots on the printed output. This implies that your design should always be 2mm bigger than the actual print format (including pictures and graphics). Failure to do so may result in minor differences, such as white margins. Place typefaces and important components of your design at least 3mm away from the final format (not counting bleeding) and avoid using edges as edges in layouts to guarantee that they are visible.

Optional: If providing data in an open format for printing, the bleed should be 4mm on each side (e.g., A4 size including bleed should be 301214mm). – Please prepare a file with 3mm bleed on either side if submitting files for presentation folders, banners, monthly calendars, packaging, or any other promotional technology items. – Envelopes should have a 1mm bleed on both sides. The elastic frames made of cloth must be bled 15mm.

Please refer to our artwork instructions if you need more information.

What filetypes do you accept for artwork?

JPG, PDF, EPS, TIFF, AI, PSD and PS (PostScript) are among the file types that may be uploaded

Ensure that your PDF file is saved in normal PDF/X format (PDF/X3 or PDF/X1a) straight from your graphics software. When saving artworks, select the “1.3 compatibility” option to prevent issues with layers and transparencies during the printing process.

If you’re transmitting TIFF files, keep the number of layers to a minimum.

Please do not utilize pre-separated data from DCS EPS to prevent color variations or issues with the printed picture.

Are you an environmentally friendly printer?

We certainly are! We provide the most comprehensive selection of soy ink-based eco-friendly printing goods in New York, including recycled business cards, brochures, presentation folders, sales sheets, stationery, catalogs, flyers, calendars, and more. Our regular stock is now recycled paper.

The printing sector has a bad reputation for environmental stewardship, with excessive use of water and energy, paper waste, and the usage of volatile chemicals that result in hazardous waste in the past. One of New York Print’s main priorities is environmental protection, and we try to put our world first.

Here’s how Gorilla Printing works on its footprint

– Using soy-based inks as standard
– Using recycled paper stocks as standard
– Printing techniques that decrease paper use, such as duplex printing
– Modern equipment that consume less energy
– Elimination of hazardous and volatile compounds
– We recycle our printing plates, press blankets, bottles, cans, and containers.
– We recycle obsolete equipment and computer components.

Discover More about Adhesive Window Perf

Window decals with perforations printed with UV ink on micro-perforated vinyl. From the inside, you can view the printed graphic while looking out the window from the outside. With magnificent displays that can span the full window, you can advertise your business, message, or brand!

Perforated Window Decals: What Are They?

A perforated window decal is a printed image or design that is perforated and adhered to a perforated vinyl material. These decals have one-way vision, so you can see outside the window when you’re inside your store but not inside when you’re approaching it. This is accomplished by puncturing 50% of the vinyl material with micropunctures, which are small holes. These micropunctures are small enough that the decal can keep a high-quality picture on one side while allowing light to pass through on the other.

These decals can be used both indoors and outdoors. Business/storefront advertising, window decor, product promotion, window signs, and branding are some of the most typical applications. They are mostly used to cover full windows, but they also give shade, privacy, and deflect sunlight.

Care

If at all possible, wash your personalised decals by hand with a moist cloth rather than using a pressure washer, which might cause peeling. To remove, gently peel from the top down, then use soapy water or adhesive remover and a razor blade to remove any remaining glue.

Most Commonly Asked Questions

Specifications

What is the substance of your perforated window decal?

Calendered adhesive vinyl is used to make our perforated window decals. This substance produces a decal that is both attractive and sturdy enough to be used outside. A 50:50 ratio of micropunctures to solid surface is used.

How can I tell if a perforated decal will be transparent or one-way visible?

Perforated window decals are the best option for individuals looking for one-way visibility on their windows through the use of a decal or window graphic. As previously stated, the perforated decal is made up of small micropunctures that run the length of the decal. Even when your decal covers the whole surface area of a window, these micropunctures allow for one-way viewing.

This one-way visibility will be for store or homeowner visitors seeing from the inside to the outside. Customers and guests visiting the business or window will see the design printed on the decal but will not be able to see through it because it is opaque. While it is possible to see through the decal despite it, this is mostly determined by the situation and what is written. Customers approaching a storefront at night and peering into an illuminated store will be able to see more than they would during the day. Furthermore, a large sticker with a dark-colored design that covers the bulk of the surface area will be less transparent than a smaller decal with lighter colours.

Custom perforated window decals are a wonderful alternative for storefront advertising that obscures the inside of the store and entices consumers to come in while promoting a gorgeous graphic, regardless of minor variations in visibility, design, and situation.

What is the size of each micropuncture?

The hole diameter of the micropunctures is 1.5 mm (.06 inches). To put it another way, they are really little. They cover around half of your decal in total.

Do you have any additional decals available?

Yes. We provide a wide range of window signage options, including decals and other sorts of window signs.

To begin, we provide bespoke window clings. Static clings are a terrific option to our semi-permanent window decals because they can be put and removed as often as needed. Rather than using glue, they “cling” to a window.

We also have a variety of bespoke window decals to choose from. Clear window decals are transparent in areas where they are not printed and can be applied to the inside or outside of your glass. It’s termed “inside glass” or “reverse print” when it’s placed on the inside so consumers can see it from the outside, and it’s a fantastic benefit for stores or residences in tough climates. Regardless of where they are printed, opaque window decals provide a perfectly opaque window sign. Due to the opaque nature of the material, a “within glass” option is not possible with opaque window decals.

For individuals looking to employ vehicle decals to advertise a home or small company, we also have perforated, transparent, and opaque alternatives.

Are vinyl window decals and window stickers or graphics the same thing?

Window stickers, window graphics, and window decals are all interchangeable phrases for the most part. At the very least, the meanings of these phrases will be grasped. However, any reputable sign firm will surely ask you a few questions to ensure that you are getting exactly what you want.

This is due to the fact that clings and decals, which are both considered window graphics, work in quite different ways. Clings are repositionable and do not have any sticky properties. Decals, on the other hand, behave more like stickers and are semi-permanent due to the adhesive backing used to apply them to the glass. It is not possible to remove and reposition a window decal. It will take less than a minute or two to do so with clings.

So long as you understand the distinction between clings and decals, as well as the varying levels of transparency afforded by different decal alternatives, we’ll understand if you say “window graphic” or “window sticker.”

What is the thickness of your perforated window decals?

Our bespoke perforated window decals have a thickness of roughly 140 microns (.0055 inches). This is about the same thickness as a couple of sheets of regular printer paper. To put it another way, they are exceedingly frail!

How long do your perforated window decals last?

With careful placement and maintenance, our perforated window decals can last up to 5 years. Depending on the situation and usage, the lifespan can vary significantly. The lamination option adds an extra layer of protection against the elements.

Perforated decals on interior windows, such as those in an office, can easily endure 5 years or more. Decals applied to the outside of a storefront in a tough climate can endure anywhere from three to five years.

Furthermore, decals that are scratched or ripped away by passers-by will clearly not endure as long as those that are simply put and not touched again.

Will my decal be ruined by exposure to the sun or the elements?

We print with UV ink that is also fade and abrasion resistant, so the printing should last the life of the decal.

Constant exposure to the environment, as mentioned above, can shorten the longevity of your perforated decal. Nonetheless, even in the most extreme climes, the decals have often lasted several years. The gloss finish of the optional lamination for window decals adds added durability and protection to your printed image.

What’s the difference between your laminated window decals and your ordinary perforated window decals?

Because of the enhanced protection against exposure, perforated window decals with lamination have a longer lifespan. Our perforated window decals with additional lamination offer a glossy appearance, which is one of the most visible changes. The gloss sheen of laminated decals can sometimes amplify natural glare on outdoor windows.

Is it possible to cut the decals to fit a specific shape? Do you want individual letters?

Vinyl lettering and individually cut letters aren’t usually done using perforated decals. Please see our vinyl lettering product page if you’re interested in this type of window decal.

Perforated window decals can be custom cut with a border (formerly known as or often referred to as halo cut) or custom cut without a border (previously known as contour cut). “Custom With Border” indicates that your decal will be trimmed to size with a tiny border around the perimeter. The term “custom” means the same thing as “custom,” but it does not have a little border.

Although these cut-to-shape options are technically conceivable, they aren’t usually required. The vast majority of people who order perforated window decals just apply the sticker to the entire window and rely on the micropunctures for transparency. If you still want a cut-to-fit perforated window decal, you can do so by choosing one of our form options.

Is it possible to get a decal with rounded corners? What about different types of shapes?

Yes! You have the option of designing your perforated window decal with 1/4″ or 1″ rounded corners.

You can have your perforated window decal cut to the shape of a square/rectangle or circle/oval in addition to the custom shape possibilities. The design tool contains all of these possibilities. If you have any questions about the numerous cut options available for your winodw decal, please contact us at support@signs.com or phone us at 888-222-4929!

What size perforated window decal can I make?

Our printers are large format printers that can print billboards and even signage that are considerably larger. While this allows us to create fairly large signage, it also limits the size of the signs we can print. Large printers attempting to print exceedingly small window decals simply do not produce an attractive decal. Our perforated window decals’ minimum and maximum sizes are mentioned below. If your requirements are outside of these parameters, please contact us and we’ll see what we can do to get your decal printed in the size you need.

Our perforated window decals come in 6″x6″ sizes as a minimum.

Our perforated window decals have a maximum size of 53″x11998″. To put it another way, if at least one of your measurements is less than 53″, we can print your decal!

What if I have a decal with more than two colours? Will it be more expensive?

All of our signs are produced in full colour, including our custom perforated window decals. As a result, whether you choose 1 colour or 100 colours in your design has no bearing on the price of your decal! We even provide free design assistance. Keep this in mind while searching for window decals, and always inquire whether the sign company prints in full colour.

Is vision through my perforated decal affected by the angle of my window?

Yes. You should be able to see through the perforated decal if your window is perpendicular to the ground. If the window is at a steep angle, however, the perforated decal may be difficult to see through. The harder it is to see through the decal, the’steeper’ the window is.

Usage

Is my perforated decal going to scratch or harm my window?

No, as long as the installation and removal instructions are followed, your perforated decal should not cause any damage to your window. Below are detailed installation and removal instructions.

What are the most common applications for perforated window decals?

Exterior storefronts and inside offices are the two most typical applications for a custom perforated window decal. Exterior storefront decals are an excellent method to attract consumers, hide outside visibility for security purposes, and add professionalism to any business. Similarly, decals for indoor workplaces can give seclusion while still allowing employees to view outside. Conference and break rooms are in the same boat. These are just a few examples, but perforated decals are a popular window sign in a number of industries and circumstances due to its one-way visibility.

Will the decal affect the transparency of my storefront or window?

Yes. The substance used to make perforated decals allows for one-way vision. This means that anyone inside the room or building will be able to see out, but anyone on the outside looking in will be unable to do so.

If two-way visibility is required, we offer our clear window decals, which are completely transparent except where printed.

Is it possible for me to put my decal on the inside of my storefront/window and have it visible from the street?

This option is available on a number of our window signs (clear window decals, clear window clings), but not on perforated decals. A “reverse print” or “inside glass” option is not accessible due to the material used for the perforated decals. These must be hung on the outside of the room or shop where they will be displayed.

Is it possible to use the decal solely on a glass surface?

A clean and smooth glass surface is perfect for the perforated window decals. They can, however, be used on any smooth, nonporous surface. They will not function on any surface that is not smooth (stucco, brick, etc.) or porous (think window screen).

If you plan to use them somewhere other than a glass surface, please ask us if it will work and we will be able to tell you.

Installation & Maintenance

Is there a backing to my decal? How do I get rid of it?

The perforated window decal features a backing that covers the adhesive side of the decal, similar to our other decals that require adhesive to cling to your window. The decal will be ready to apply to the window once it has been removed.

However, before you remove the very thin backing that protects the sticky side, make sure you read the installation instructions and are ready to attach it right away!

What is the best way to apply my perforated window decal?

Cleaning the window with a non-abrasive rag or cloth is the first step in placing your perforated window decal. Strong cleansers should be avoided because the goal of cleaning is to provide the decal a clean surface to stick to in the first place. Often, simply cleaning the window’s surface area with water is adequate. After it has had time to air dry, you can move on to the next stage.

The next step is to carefully peel away the decal’s backing. Make sure to remove the backing softly and slowly so that you don’t rip the decal, which has 50 percent micropunctures!

Applying the actual decal to the window is the most challenging phase, though it isn’t that difficult. Water should not be used during the installation of this window sticker, unlike some of our other window decals. The decal can instead be “tacked” or softly placed against the corners of the glass. If you’re placing a larger decal with more than one person, tack it in two corners as indicated in the next question. This will keep the decal in place as you slowly and firmly press it against the window, preventing air bubbles from entering. Working in one direction, whether from top to bottom or side to side, is the simplest method to accomplish this. With the corners attached, gently pull the decal away from the window and press it firmly against the glass with a sharp edge. Any air bubbles that appear can be quickly removed by pulling the decal away from the window and reapplying it to the affected area. When you apply the decal in a methodical manner, you’ll be able to peel it away swiftly before the adhesive sets in, allowing you to remove air pockets as needed.

The margins of the decals may need to be cut in some circumstances. As needed, a little razor blade can be used for this. Just be careful not to scratch or damage the decal or your window.

Is it necessary for more than one person to complete the installation?

In most circumstances, more than one person is required to put a perforated window decal. This is especially true for decals that are larger.

Having more hands on deck guarantees that the sticker does not stick to itself when the backing is removed, as well as making the actual application of the decal a lot easier. For example, one person can affix the decal in two corners and then hold it away from the rest of the window while the other applies and removes air bubbles using a flat edge or a squeegee with the help of a second person. This is, by far, the greatest approach to apply the decal, in our opinion.

What is the best way to store my decal?

Your decal can be rolled and stored at room temperature in a dry spot before use. Nothing should be placed on the decal while it is being rolled, and it should not be folded, as both acts might produce permanent crease markings.

The decal is intended for semi-permanent use due to the adhesive used. This means that once the decal has firmed up after installation, it will be impossible to remove and reposition it.

After you’ve put your Perforated Window Decal, you won’t be able to reuse it.

What is the best way to clean my decal?

Cleaning your decal using a moist, non-abrasive cloth or rag on a regular basis is recommended. To remove any debris or dust that has gathered on the decal, simply wipe it down. The decal should be softly cleaned rather than washed forcefully. Power washers and harsh cleansers should also be avoided because they can harm the decal.

How do I get rid of my decal? Will it leave a tremendous mess and a lot of residue behind?

The decal should easily peel away from the glass. To help peel it away, use a flat surface that won’t damage the window. It may be more difficult to remove decals that have been in place for a long time. It is possible to make the decals easier to remove by heating them. A simple window washing and rag will remove any remaining adhesive.

Is it possible to wash my window while the decal is in place?

Power cleansers and excessive scrubbing, as previously said, can harm the decal. Cleaning your decal and glass should instead be done gently with a moist non-abrasive cloth.
