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.

Where can I pickup my printing jobs?

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 Window Clings

Clear window clings are a versatile and recyclable way to quickly display brand and ornamental graphics. UV ink was used to print on transparent repositionable vinyl.

What Are Clear Window Clings and How Do They Work?

Window clings are designed to be installed on windows in less than a minute and are completely customizable and repositionable. Clear window clings are made of optically clear vinyl and are designed to highlight logos, fonts, and graphics without the use of messy adhesive. It’s not a problem if you don’t have any adhesive. Window clings are non-adhesive and provide a secure ‘cling’ to the window, allowing for simple placement, removal, and repositioning or re-use. Extremely small lettering and sizes (nothing smaller than 3″x3″) look best on clings. For temporary or long-term usage, custom window clings can be applied to glass, metal, plastic, or any other non-porous surface. Clear static clings or static window clings are other names for them.

How to Care for Your Product

Cleaning custom clear window clings is as simple as wiping them down with a moist cloth. Wipe any debris or residue from the cling’s surface and the surrounding glass with a soft cloth. Simply remove the window cling from the window, wipe it down to remove any surface debris, and re-apply the protective backing on the ‘adhesive’ side when not in use. Wax paper can be used as a protective backing if you don’t have the protective backing.

Most Commonly Asked Questions

Specifications

What is the composition of your clings?

The vinyl used to make our personalized window clings is clear and transparent. The signage is made of a non-adhesive window cling material. This means it’s free of adhesive glues, making it simple to install, remove, and reuse. Instead, the vinyl acts as a mini-suction cup, allowing these bespoke clings to stick to the window’s surface. These window clings are clear at first. As a result, the background of your sign will be clear by default (as indicated by the grey and white checkered background on our design tool). If you want a solid color background, you can either change the background color throughout the creation process or use our opaque cling. If you prefer a transparent backdrop, keep in mind that files with solid backgrounds will not be transparent. If you require assistance, please use a transparent PNG file or contact us for free design services.

Are window clings, static clings, static cling decals, or static cling stickers the same thing?

Yes, in a word. Without glue, your window cling will attach to any smooth surface, especially glass or plexiglass. Because the notion that “static electricity” is what permits them to stay to surfaces, window clings that adhere without the messy adhesive that regular window decals utilise are sometimes referred to as static window clings. In this blog post, we debunk that notion. Any of the names above, as well as variations such as decals, clings, and stickers, are frequently interchanged. As long as you understand that these clings do not have an actual adhesive and are clear unless the design uploaded or used is not clear, you’ll receive what you need regardless of the phrase you choose.

What’s the difference between window clings and vinyl decals?

While both our window clings and window decals are composed of vinyl, window clings do not contain any adhesive glues, whereas most decals adhere to the glass surface using an adhesive backing. Our clear window decals, on the other hand, do not employ an adhesive and instead use a proprietary adhesion technology that makes them behave like window clings. Window clings are removable, repositionable, and reusable, whereas decals are normally semi-permanent (save for our clear window decals). Both are versatile signage alternatives for retail establishments, offices, and other environments with glass surfaces or windows.

How do window clings adhere to windows?

Window clings, unlike our vinyl window decals, do not have an adhesive backing that allows them to stick to your windows. Similarly, static clings do not stick owing to static electricity, contrary to popular assumption. When placed and pressed against a smooth, non-porous surface such as glass, metal, or plastic, clings attach because the vinyl material acts like a suction cup. If you need more details, we’ve published a more detailed article about how static clings operate.

Should I go with a decal or a cling?

Static window clings are suitable for short-term uses like sales, events, holiday décor, seasonal promotions, and so on. As a result, they’re an excellent choice for retail businesses that routinely run specials and other marketing materials in an attempt to increase foot traffic. They’re also less expensive than window decals, but they’re not as long-lasting. Window cling is the way to go if you want or need something that can be removed and placed on a regular basis. A window decal is a good option if you want a semi-permanent and long-lasting solution. While phrases like “window cling stickers” and “static cling window decals” may be used, keep in mind that the basic functionality of clings and decals differs significantly.

Do you only have “normal” window cling sizes available?

You have the ability to make your window cling practically any size you like! Window clings do not have any industry-specific standard sizes. While certain sizes are likely to be more popular (6″x 9″, 9″x 12″, 12″x 18″, 12″x 24″, 16″x 20″, 18″x 24″, and 24″x 36″) due to clings being used for store hours, discounts, and other purposes, we provide clings in practically every size. Regardless, your window cling must be between a certain minimum and maximum size. Clings must be no less than 3″ in diameter and no more than 300″ in length (which is pretty big). Due to our big format printers, clings less than 3″x3″ do not adhere as effectively and may result in less-than-clear printing. To guarantee that your material is printed clearly, you should avoid choosing very small typefaces or writing.

Will my transparent cling be visible from afar?

To achieve the best visibility for your cling, we recommend using a contrasting color. To give the best possible clarity and brilliance, we usually print white behind the printed section of your cling. This white print will not be visible and is provided at no cost. Aside from a contrasting color and white ink, consider what surface and where your cling will be put, from what distance you need people to see it, and what text you actually need on the sign when creating your cling. For most signage, less is more!

When is it better to use transparent cling over opaque cling?

Clear clings have the benefit of allowing visibility in regions where ink is not written. Clear clings are ideal for usage in shops or retail settings. This allows you to promote a sale or offer while still allowing customers to see your product displays and store.

Is printing in full color more expensive?

No, printing in full color does not cost more because we print everything in full color. As a result, there is no reduction for printing in only one or two colors. Instead, the size and quantity you choose will determine the price of your sign. Design whatever you want without worrying about increasing the cost of your sign. You can also contact us and we’ll design exactly what you want for free.

Is it possible to trim the clings to fit your needs? Do you want individual letters?

Yes, we have square/rectangle, rounded corners with a 14″ radius or 1″ radius, circle/oval, and custom with border options for our clear window clings (previously known as or sometimes referred to as halo). We don’t usually recommend Custom with Border because the clear section of the cling is so clear that having the cut match the form of your design isn’t necessary in most circumstances. Custom With Border, on the other hand, allows you to make clings in any form or size. If you want individually cut vinyl letters for your storefront or home windows, you’re probably seeking for vinyl lettering, which is a whole different product.

Usage

Will my cling adhere to the window in any weather?

Window clings, for the most part, will function in a range of climates. Regardless, we recommend that window clings be used primarily indoors. Storefronts can still advertise to approaching customers by selecting “Inside Glass” and putting clear static clings on the inside of the glass. This helps to avoid very damp, humid, or cold temperatures, which might affect the cling’s performance and usefulness. Moderate weather and conditions are appropriate for outside use on windows or car windows.

What types of surfaces will the cling adhere to?

Window clings will adhere to any type of glass. They will attach to smooth surfaces like glass replacements like acrylic and solid plastics in most circumstances. They won’t stick to walls, wood, or other porous surfaces. They must also adhere to a nonporous surface, which means it cannot have any gaps or fissures that allow water or air to pass through. A smooth, unpainted surface will help the window cling to adhere correctly. Just make sure you follow the installation instructions before applying your cling.

Is it okay for me to use my window cling outside? On automobiles, trucks, or other types of vehicles?

Inside, clings are most commonly used. We don’t usually encourage using them outside, even though they can be. If you’re planning to use them outside, make sure to follow the installation instructions and take them down before a storm. Because they may be removed and reapplied fast and simply, they can be used outside. Select “Inside Glass” if you want them to display outside but be mounted inside. This means we’ll reverse print your cling. Then you may display your cling on the inside of your shop or window for everybody to see or approaching your place of business. This printing approach achieves the desired visibility while keeping the cling out of the elements. Make sure your window isn’t tinted, though, otherwise your cling’s visibility may be limited. We do not recommend using clings on the outside of any car. They are not designed to be used on cars, and if they are, they will fly off. For car signage, we propose our car decals or magnets.

What about my automobile or truck’s interior?

Yes, you can put them in your car or truck’s interior. If you want it to be seen from the inside, skip the “Inside Glass” option. If you want it to be visible from the outside of the car, select the “Inside Glass” option when ordering. While we still advocate utilising a vinyl decal for a more permanent solution, employing a transparent window cling this way allows you to put them inside a car while still allowing people to view the message from the outside.

What is the maximum number of times I may remove my window cling? Is there going to be any leftovers?

Window clings can be removed and reused as many as you’d like if you follow the installation and storage guidelines. Because they adhere to the window as the vinyl serves as a suction cup when firmly pressed against the surface, removing them from the window should leave no sticky adhesive residue.

What are the most common applications for clings?

Retail stores, restaurants, spas, salons, grocery stores, and other businesses commonly utilise window clings. Signs are typically used to promote specials and promotions, persuade people to enter the store, indicate store hours, adorn sites during holiday or seasonal occasions, and advertise at the point of purchase. Clings are also ideal for transitory environments like tradeshow displays and conference centres. Installation & Maintenance

How do I put my window cling in place?

Your window cling can be applied in a similar manner as our window decals. First, make sure the area where the window cling will be placed is clean and fully dry. Remove the cling from the liner, spray the cling and the window with water, then apply the cling and firmly push it to the window with a squeegee or a credit card to remove the water. Begin in the centre of the cling and work your way outwards.

What is the best way to clean my window cling?

Use soapy water and a moist towel or sponge to clean your cling. Wipe the back of your cling to remove any dirt or grime that has accumulated. Wipe away any surplus soap with clean water and a moist cloth or sponge. Doing it on a regular basis will assist your cling last longer.

What is the best way to store my window cling?

Keep the lining that came with your cling if you plan on keeping it for future use. This liner can be used to carefully replace the cling and keep it in a cold, dry place with a sheet of paper or wax paper on both sides. If you don’t have any lining, just store them flat between wax paper sheets. Clings should not be rolled or folded. It’s difficult to get rid of creases and curls.

My window cling is no longer clinging. What can I do to bring it back to life?

Cleaning your window cling with soapy water and then rinsing it with clean water can renew it. By rubbing your window cling against a wool or fleece blanket, you may be able to extend its life. Make sure to spray the window and the cling with water before reinstalling. Then apply the cling to the window with a squeegee.
