Window Graphics INFO Center

What kind of materials do you use for window graphics?
Zarvox offers a variety of material choices for your window graphics. High quality is priority at Zarvox, so we print at high resolution on top quality vinyl materials that are manufactured by the best brands on the market such as 3M, Avery, and Oracal. Our window decals are made of a high quality vinyl. We use Perforated Window Film or Window Perf for full coverage window wraps that extend from edge to edge. The window graphics using our perforated polyester or perforated vinyl allow the most light to come in, while the image is only visible from the outside during the day. The perforated material is 70% vinyl/polyester 30% holes and made specifically for windows. There are both indoor and outdoor perforated films for window graphics. Perforated polyester is installed on the inside of the window with the graphics facing out. We use optically clear double-sided tape on the edges to secure the film. Perforated vinyl has an adhesive back and is installed on the outside of the window, therefore eliminating window glare. Please note that we cannot contour cut perforated film, the shape will be either a square or rectangle at the size you specify for your window. As an alternative, we also offer solid vinyl window wraps that block almost all light from coming in. Additionally, you can choose a matte or gloss finish for any of these materials. We also offer removable static cling decals that adhere to a window or smooth solid surface with the force of static electricity. They do not use any adhesive and are reusable.

What kind of materials do you use for window signs?
Window signs are printed and mounted on your choice of rigid materials. Palight PVC is a lightweight, flexible, durable foamed PVC sheet that is ideal for advertising. Gator Board is a dense board with a polystyrene foam core, and is great choice for mounting exhibits and signs where light weight, rigidity and warp resistance are desired. Zarvox also can mount your print on a lightweight corrugated plastic called Coroplast that is the same material used for yard signs.

If I put window graphics on my storefront window can people on the outside see inside?
During the day people on the outside will be unable to see inside. Though at night, if the outside is dark but the inside is well-lit the inside may be viewable.

Can you make my logo into a window decal?
Yes, we are able to create a custom decal of your logo. When it comes to custom logo decals please send us a vector file (.ai or .eps) and the approximate size desired so that we can quote accurately. This is because detailed, narrow or complex shapes will take much longer to prepare than a logo with a simple shape such as a rectangle or circle. If you do not have a vector logo file please email and we can help create a high quality vector logo for your business.

Can you print a window decal that matches the pantone colors in my logo?
Yes, we use the Pantone Matching System (PMS). This is a standardized color system that allows printers to have a matching guide when printing. Using this system we can print using process colors, also known as CMYK, to accurately match the Pantone colors in your design. CMYK is the standard color model in printing and refers to the four inks used: cyan, magenta, yellow and key (black). Full color graphics are produced by using a mixture of cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink.

How long will my window graphics last?
Silicone outdoor window graphics that are laminated last up to 5 years depending on sun exposure.

Do you provide installation for window graphics?
Yes, if you are located within San Diego County we offer professional installation services for your window graphics.

What is the difference between a window decal and a static cling sign?
Unlike a window decal, a static cling sign is removable and reusable. Static clings do not use any adhesive. Instead they adhere to a window or smooth solid surface with the force of static electricity. Clings easily peel off surfaces, allowing them to be repositioned.

How long will my static cling decal last?
How long a static cling decal will last depends on sun exposure and weather. The static has a limited life and for longevity is recommended to be used only on the inside of windows. Typically a static cling decal is durable from 1 1/2-2 years.

How much do you charge for window graphics?
Pricing for window graphics is dependent upon the design, size and material chosen. You can choose the selections that are right for your project on our window graphics page and get an immediate custom quote.

What kind of artwork files do you accept?
We accept .jpg, .png, .gif, .pdf, .psd, .ai and .eps files. Zarvox will digitally print at 1440×720 DPI on vinyl and other materials. For the best print results, we ask that you provide us with a vector version of your art in adobe illustrator (.ai or .eps file). If you only have raster images (.jpg, .png, .gif, .pdf, .psd) please send the highest quality you have available.

What quality or resolution does my artwork need to be for a window wrap?

Can you help me design a window wrap for my business?
Yes, we can help with your window wrap design. Typically this process involves a phone conversation to discuss your vision. We then give you a window design based on our conversation, and allow for two minor revisions to this initial design. If you are within San Diego County we also offer site survey services in which we will come to you and take measurements and pictures of the site, as well as provide consultation for your project. Please email and we will provide a custom quote for your project.

Can I see a proof before placing my window graphics order?
Yes, prior to printing your window graphics we will send you a digital proof for approval.

What is the turnaround time for window graphics? Do you offer a rush service?
In most cases from the day that you approve the digital proof of your car graphics your order will ship within 5 business days. Orders ship from our San Diego, CA production facility. If you require your project earlier please email prior to ordering and we will do our best to work within your timeline.
