Description

Window Cling is is designed to cling by using static and prints on 4 mil clear or frost white synthetic material in full color on one side. It is designed for display on window glass, though you can also use it on other smooth surfaces. Window Cling comes in a range of sizes from 6" x 6" to 150' by 59" (inches).

Note: Minimum order is $29.50.

Since the front side, printed side, comes static charged, there is no need to reverse(mirror) any images. Due to the 4-color process, clear Window Cling will not print white. Any white in the design will print as clear. Please note that Colors in Clear stock have a 50% transparency on all colors, and are not solid. We do not use white ink for printing. Anything that is white on the Clear stock will be completely transparent and will not print.

Because of the wide potential size range of our large format products, there are additional file setup considerations. Proofs are typically shown half size. For other details, please review the file setup section carefully.

Due to the material, all substrates may expand or shrink from batch to batch, which makes exact cuts very difficult. We do not recommend borders. If you would like borders, please make sure they are at least 2" thick. We will not reprint if the borders are not exactly the same on all sides after cutting.

Recommendations

The most common order options are 3' x 5' on 4 mil. Frost White Low-Tac Adhesive. Window Cling is printed in full color on one side (4/0).

Note: Window Cling may not have desired results if printed with full coverage (ink filling the entire sheet). Leaving spaces in or around your design will increase the area that connects the cling to the window. If you choose to print full coverage, we recommend Low-Tac for best results.

Marketing Tips

Window Cling is a way to use your windows to tell a message, whether it's a clearance sale, new inventory arrival, or something less conventional. Window Cling material applications have expanded beyond the window to include painted walls and smooth surfaces of all kinds. Use Window Cling for promotional messaging. When you want to display your message on a window or a wall and be able to remove it without leaving residue or pulling paint (in good condition), try Window Cling.

Consider adding a QR code to your design to link directly to additional online information. This can be a great way to provide more detail than you would want to cram onto your Window Cling. Since a QR code can link to an online message, you can change the online message without the need to reprint the QR code.

Custom Sizes

Our standard sizes, listed below, are the most popular in the industry:

Available in custom sizes ranging from 1' x 1' up to 75' wide x 53" high.

4 mil Clear Low-Tac Adhesive

Designed for indoor use, this clear, mild adhesive-backed substrate lets people on either side of the window see through the areas where there is not a printed design. The Low-Tac adhesive helps keep the Window Cling in place with very little to no residue left upon removal.

4 mil Frost White Low-Tac Adhesive

Designed for indoor use, this white, mild adhesive-backed substrate creates a white background for your design. The Low-Tac adhesive helps keep the Window Cling in place with very little to no residue left upon removal.

4 mil Frost White Static Cling

Designed for indoor use, this white, static cling substrate creates a white background for your design. Static cling uses static rather than adhesive to hold the window cling in place, so there is no residue left upon removal.

Note: Window Cling may not have desired results if printed with full coverage (ink filling the entire sheet). Leaving spaces in or around your design will increase the area that connects the cling to the window. If you choose to print full coverage, we recommend Low-Tac for best results.

File Preparation

In order to ensure your files are print-ready, we recommend that you upload them in PDF format.

We also accept .JPG (JPEG), .EPS and .TIF (TIFF) file types, however PDF is the preferred format.

Check your file to make sure it meets our file creation guidelines. This will help speed up the production of your project and give your printed piece the best results.

  1. Use the CMYK colorspace (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK). These are industry standard printing colors. CMYK colors are different than RGB (Red, Green, Blue), which are used to display colors on your screen.

  2. Use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for image files.
  3. All fonts need to be outlined or embedded. For more information on fonts, please Click Here
  4. Specify trim area with crop marks. (Don't place crop marks inside the work area.) For more information on crop marks, please Click Here
  5. Artwork should have 1/8" (0.125") bleed extending past the trim line. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge. For more information on bleed, please Click Here
  6. Safe Area is the 1/8" (0.125") area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge. For more information on safe area, please Click Here
  7. If you want printed borders, they must be placed a minimum of 1/8" (0.125") inside the trim line and include bleed. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.For more information on borders, please Click Here

Bleed and Safe Area

We require that you extend any images that run up to the trim line a minimum of 1/8" (0.125") past the trim line to create "bleed". Depending on what program you use to create your file, this may or may not change the total image area of your file. Programs like Photoshop that do not allow the creation of "bleed" or the addition of crop marks will require an image area that is 1/4" (0.25") larger than your desired final overall image area in both dimensions.

Safe Area is the 1/8" (0.125") area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge. If you choose to make less than this minimum clearance, we will NOT be responsible for items that are cut off in this area.
