Do I need a Design?
We supply a variety of window stickers to cover all possible use cases. We have maximum occupancy stickers to help manage the number of people within the business premises at one time and several social distancing policy stickers to keep your customers informed. Our coronavirus safety signs are in green, blue, red, yellow and black as standard but any colour is possible, just ask!
Can I have a Bespoke Design?
The printed window vinyl can be custom made to any needed design. Please note, any bespoke design may increase the turnaround time and artwork fees may apply.
Inside or Outside?
Window vinyl can be applied to either the interior or exterior of a window, with the option to have the graphic visible on either side. We need to know beforehand, as the production of the printed vinyl is different depending on which face needs to be visible. White vinyl is used when the print needs to be a different side to the adhesive. However, most window stickers are typically stuck on the interior window that are viewed from outside the shop, in this case, we print on clear vinyl.
Confused about Solid vs Spot vs Transparent Colours?
When printed on clear vinyl, colours will have a “stained glass window” effect where the vinyl retains the colour of the print but remains “see through”. Typically, this is not the desired effect and therefore we can “block out” or made the colour solid. This is done by applying a white vinyl to the back of the clear vinyl; however, this will then make the full graphic no longer transparent. Spot white is a compromise between the two. Spot white involves printing white ink behind only specific areas of the vinyl, to make the colours appear solid, whilst maintaining transparency for the rest of the graphic. Please note, there may be extra charges for backing in white and spot colours.
Is it more expensive to print multiple colours?
No, we digitally print all of our products in full colour using UV resistant inks as standard. So you won't see any increases in price if you have a lot of colour in your artwork.
How do I submit my artwork files?
Simply attach your artwork via our upload option when placing your order, our uploader will accept Jpeg, Tiff, PNG, PDF and ZIP files up to 50mb. It is recommended to ensure artwork files are optimised to retain a reasonable file size.
You can also simply use our email address (at the top of the website) and attach your files. If you have any problems with sending large files give us a call or use file sharing services like WeTransfer.com. If you are using WeTransfer or similar, we highly recommend sending an email alongside this, as we do not pick up orders from WeTransfer emails.
What are requirements for artwork files?
Preferable file format is PDF or high-quality JPG. If you are supplying artwork ready to print, please make sure the design files meet all general standard printing requirements like:
- Files must be to scale (100% size) or at least in proportion (half size, quarter size etc.)
- CMYK colour mode (no RGB or Pantone colours as it can cause problems)
- All text must be converted to curves/outlined or at least embedded inside supplied pdf
- There is no need for extra bleeds and crop marks for simple rectangular signs
- Please include cut path for cut out boards indicating expected board shape OR simply describe where it should be, and we will draw the shape for you in most cases free of charge.
In case you require and design work or are uncertain about the files you have please just attach your files with description in your message. We will help and advice. If there would be any extra charge involved, we will let you know before proceeding with any changes.
Am I able to collect from you directly rather than arrange delivery?
We are located in a town called Whitefield just outside of Manchester City Center, if you happen to be local, or are just passing by, you're more than welcome to collect your order from us directly. If this would be preferred just let us know when sending over your order.
Can I fit this myself?
Applying vinyl can be a daunting prospect for first time purchasers, the last thing anyone wants to do is stretch or tear their newly bought stickers. Smaller vinyl (A3 and below) are generally easier to apply on your own but you might need an extra pair of hands, especially when trying to apply anything larger than a metre. Please make sure the application area has been cleaned with soap and water and is free from any residue. If in doubt, it may make sense to hire a professional to take any worry out of the situation.
