Product Summary 

Frosted or etched windows are delightfully elegant. They look like your windows have been sandblasted. Particularly pleasant and understated for period properties. Like decals, choose the areas you want to be cut-out. Supplied pre-cut on backing paper which fixes to the inside of the glass. 

 

File Supply

Shaped, etched and frosted window stickers are easy to set up, you basically just supply a mask of the area to be frosted. Here are some extra details

Colour use

Any areas that require frosted vinyl should have a 100% Magenta fill and any areas that are to be discarded should be blank or white. Do not include any other colours in your artwork.

Bleed

Your file should be supplied at 100% size with no bleed. There aren't templates for this product as window sizes are bespoke. Just set the page size in your chosen graphics application.

File Type

You need to supply .EPS files, these can be produced from all the major graphics packages.

Fonts

Please convert all fonts to outlines

Design detail

It is important that all edges are defined within the artwork and that any strokes and fonts have been outlined. Do not place duplicate lines, text or shapes that sit on top of each other.

Imposition

Designs can sometimes be abstract and there is an option to face or reverse apply the vinyl. Your finishing notes within your job will indicate this and your EPS file should match.
 
Face applied: Vinyl sticks to the outside of the window and artwork supplied right reading.
 
Reverse applied: Vinyl sticks to the inside of the window and artwork supplied in reverse.
 

Check imposition set up

To avoid any issues or confusion over orientation we put the responsibility on the supplying studio to have reversed the file before sending to production.
