Wall Graphics and Window Graphics
Integrated Signs can also help you dress up the interior or exterior of your business using window graphics. Add your logo and contact information to your office entrance, take advantage of empty window space across the front of your retail location to announce sales or promotions and many other dual-purpose options.
Perforated vinyl window graphics can be used for building windows, car windows or virtually any flat window surface. We can print a full-color design on the non-sticky side of the vinyl, giving the illusion of a solid printed vinyl window graphic, while at the same time, allowing you to have full visibility from the inside looking out. Perforated vinyl contains lots of tiny holes to allow a solid appearance on one side while allowing full visibility from the opposing side. It’s also a great way to cut down sun that beats down on the front of a building or provide privacy for windows on the back of businesses to avoid vandals and thieves from seeing materials inside your building. Lots of businesses chose perforated vinyl window graphics for advertising their brand or contact information on the rear windows of pickup trucks or delivery vans while they are out in the field traveling.
Frosted vinyl is another option that can be used for covering full windows or portions of windows for privacy. Frosted vinyl window graphics are also a cost-effective way to create a higher-end etched glass look while providing easier ways to update and change graphics or info without needing to swap out the pane of glass. Etched vinyl window graphics are also a great option for businesses leasing office space since they can be easily removed before vacating your space.
Any of these same materials can easily be applied to interior walls too. Wall graphics can range from full or partial coverage. Wall graphics are a great option for businesses looking to create a statement wall in a lobby, waiting area or meeting room. Use colorful custom designs to help inspire creativity, encourage higher productivity and establish a sense of shared purpose. For example, you can implement them to reinforce a company value like sustainability or as a reminder of how far your business has come from its humble origins.
Other popular choices for wall graphics include:
- mission statements
- business history and timelines
- logos and branding
- printed photo wall murals
- graphic element wall murals
- unique selling points for your business like low price guarantees, 24/7 service, fast turnaround times, etc.
- directional queues within stores to differentiate departments and more!
Cut Vinyl Lettering
Cut vinyl lettering allows you more design flexibility with two options for cutting — standard and reverse.
We digitally cut each piece of standard-cut lettering from your choice of vinyl, and it’s ready for immediate installation. Conversely, reverse-cut lettering is a solid vinyl surface with the lettering removed. The resulting silhouette allows vehicle or wall colors to show through the letter outlines. In other words, standard-cut vinyl lettering comprises letters cut from the material, while reverse-cut style is lettering made from the vinyl’s negative space.
This concept differs slightly from reverse-print vinyl, which Integrated Signs can also help with. With reverse-print, we design and cut the letters as a mirror image. When you install this letting on a window’s interior, guests outside can read it easily.
What Are Vinyl Graphics?
Vinyl graphics are giant vinyl stickers you can use to brand your workplace, as well as create private areas by adding privacy film. In terms of cost, they’re on the lower end of pricing, which is why they’re an extremely popular signage type among businesses. The best part is — they’re no less effective than an expensive sign, and can brand your building just as well.
Vinyl graphics are extremely customizable, which means you can opt for your logo, a tagline, your company name and more — using a wide variety of colors and fonts. Not only can you use custom vinyl graphics for your signage, but you can also use them to create private areas of your building by opting for privacy graphics. They essentially make your glass look frosted.
