Window Graphics or Window Decals?
The term window graphics generally means covering large areas of glass with single piece full
colour printed vinyl graphics. Window decals, on the other hand refers to partial covering
of a window with smaller, shaped graphics' or individual cutout lettering, perhaps conveying a
telephone number or web address. Our printing presses are equipped with laser controlled cutting
equipment, allowing us to combine window coverage with highly individual decal work.
We use monomeric vinyls which are made for flat surfaces, short, medium or long term term applications. Available in either gloss white, matt white or clear gloss with a choice of permanent or removable adhesives
dependant on application. Outdoor durability from 2 to 4 years.
In plain English, that means whatever you need to cover your windows... we can supply it rapidly at cost effective prices.
If you need us to install your window graphics here's some additional information you may find useful.
Where appropriate we provide site surveys to ensure the highest standards of safety and compliance. And we only use our own fully qualified and experienced installation teams. We think we've covered everything you need including provision of all necessary access equipment.
Browse through our gallery of images and you'll see we've produced and installed 100's of examples of printed window graphics for clients across the UK.
Common questions and answers:
Q: Can I install my own widow vinyls or window graphics?
A: Installation of window vinyls and graphics is a skilled process and does generally require some level of previous experience. We would recommend experienced installation on all but the most straightforward vinyl letters.
Q: Can I remove window vinyls and window graphics easily?
A: Most of the products we supply are designed to be semi-permanent. This means they can be removed but not for re-use. We do however supply a product called window cling which is designed for limited re-use where appropriate.
Q: Do my window graphics need to obscure all of my window area?
A: No - we can print onto clear self adhesive vinyl with white 'spot colour' areas which means some sections can be left clear if desired.
Q: Can you print window vinyls from my own supplied artwork?
A: Yes - no problem. We can take your artwork as high resolution PDF's or tiff files via our email or FTP server. Alternatively, our own in-house design studio can create artwork on your behalf from your original brief.

If you are a retailer wondering how you can improve your business and strengthen your brand, then custom window graphics could be the answer you are looking for. Custom window graphics are used in the retail industry as both a visual marketing tool and popular method of signage. Not only do they tell people on the street what you do (and how well you do it!), but they help to draw people in; thus turning outside footfall into new customers.
With the high street taking the battering it has done in recent months, it is harder than ever for retail businesses to not only stand out, but just to survive. This is where branding comes in. A strong brand has proven to be the secret to the success of many businesses, and this is where custom window graphics can help.
There are a few decisions that you need to make when you decide to use custom window graphics.
Firstly, what kind of window vinyl suits your application?
You should consider whether contra vision is more appropriate than etched custom window graphics or another alternative. Contra vision involves the use of a full colour design printed on one side of a specialist film. It means the graphic is visible from one side but is not visible from the other side. This allows all the benefits of branding and marketing your window without spoiling the interior of the shop, or the view of the outside world for your customers.
You may find that, due to budget or concerns about privacy, that an opaque or etched effect self-adhesive vinyl is better. These window graphics combine privacy, decorative style and simple branding to glass windows and doors with a sand blasted effect.
Finally, there is translucent coloured vinyl, window-cling, metallic and 'lustre-effect' vinyl to consider. Even more cost effective and equally simple to organise.
Don't worry if you feel overwhelmed at the options available and are unsure where to start. The best thing to do is to contact an experienced supplier such as the Image Group. The Image Group will be able to help with every stage of using custom window graphics from creating and assisting with artwork, printing and finishing all custom window graphics and vinyl and finally, installation.
At the Image Group we are concerned that all our customers get the highest level of care. This means that we conduct site surveys where needed (to ensure health and safety) and that we only use our own installation teams who we know and trust to be qualified and experienced. We are ultra efficient and able to print, deliver and install your custom window graphics within a week of your initial enquiry.
Our customers often ask if they can install their own window graphics. While some vinyl can be straightforward to install‚ simple lettering for example‚ most of the installation of window vinyl and graphics require a high degree of skill and experience. This is why we suggest that customers take advantage of our experienced installation teams for the best possible effect.
Another question we are often asked is if the removal of window vinyl and graphics is difficult and whether they can be used again. Most of the products we supply are designed to be removed, but not re-used. If you would like to find a product that can be re-used, please ask about specialist window cling, which is designed for re-use in most circumstances. And, as long as the window graphics and vinyl are applied correctly, removal should leave no lasting marks.
