Glass manifestation window graphics & digitally printed window films  (DDA compliant)

 

Glass manifestation or glazing enhancement is the application of digitally printed, frosted or digitally printed graphics to glass and windows.

Digitally printed optical clear window film is a superb way of extending your interior décor design. Suitable for glass partitioning, windows and doors, it also offers DDA compliancy and is fire retardant.  XG’s portfolio of films can achieve broad and innovative applications including: branding and advertising, interior and retail design, privacy and manifestation, and safety.

XG's range of window graphics films include optically clear PET (Polyester) with permanent adhesive for long term applications, removable adhesives for short term promotional applications or non adhesive for glazing interlam use. Also available are frost or glass etch effect products as well as printed bomb blast / safety films.

Our leading edge digital print technology also enables white ink printing capability, producing stunning graphic effects. With the ability to, add white as a spot colour or flood colour, we are able to control variables such as depth of colour and opacities, making the glass area totally unique.

Digitally printed window graphics film print processes

Standard CMYK - we use a standard 4 colour process ink set to produce stunning full colour images onto any of our film options. When printed on clear film, the areas of image which would normally be white will be transparent, giving a translucent quality to the image when applied to glass.

Standard CMYK + white in process - we enhance the standard 4 colour process ink set with the addition of white ink  to produce stunning full colour images and special effects onto any of our clear film options. The addition of white ink to selected areas can enhance the opacity of pale colours and white areas within an image which could otherwise appear transparent. White ink can also be mixed (at artwork stage) with colour to increase opacity of a colour. The white ink may also be used as a spot colour- for example, to add white text or graphics to your design.

White only - we print using only white ink onto any of our clear film options. The use of white ink allows us to create a range of interesting effects, including geometric patterns and fades. These are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to traditional frosted effect window film.

Multi layer - CMYK, spot white, flood white - we can print in multiple layers on top of each other onto our optically clear films. The use of multi layer can create high density print which is normally not possible on digitally printed optically clear films. With the capability to print up to 3 layers in one process plus the ability to mix the order and process on each layer as either CMYK, white spot or white flood there are numerous permutations  effects and options available using this process.
