Window Cling

Description

Window Cling is either light adhesive-backed or 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 1' x 1' to 75' by 53" (inches).

For Window Cling material adhered to the inside of a window and intended to be viewed from the outside, be sure to flip your image and order Clear Low-Tac Adhesive. Due to the 4-color process, clear Window Cling will not print white. Any white in the design will print as clear.

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 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.

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 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.

4/0

 

Full color (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black as above) on the front and no printing on the back. A typical example of this is a poster.

File Preparation

 

In order to ensure your files are print-ready, we recommend that you upload them in PDF format. When you generate a print-ready PDF, your computer will use the settings in Adobe Acrobat Distiller or any other PDF generating programs you may use. Please make sure that these are set properly before generating your PDF file.

If you are uploading PDF files created in Photoshop, please be sure all layers are flattened.

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.  

  3. Use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for image files.

  4.  

  5. Specify trim area with crop marks. (Don't place crop marks inside the work area.)

  6.  

  7. 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.

  8.  

  9. 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.

  10.  

  11. 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.

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.

Proofs and File Check

 

We offer three proof options:

  1. Online PDF Proof: You will be sent a link to view your proof via email. Please keep in mind that this is only a proof for content and positioning; the color on your screen may vary from the color of your final product, depending on your monitor and viewing conditions.

  2.  

  3. Hard Copy Proof: The Hard Copy Proof can either be picked up on-site or shipped to you. Please keep in mind that this is a proof for content and positioning and is not printed on your actual job stock. Color may vary slightly when printed on the stock you ordered. When ordering a Hard Copy Proof, you will receive a complimentary Online PDF Proof, as well.

  4.  

  5. No Proof, Run As-Is: This option is for the industry professional who is certain their project is ready to hit the press and does not require the additional security of a proof.

File Check:

If our prepress department sees anything questionable with your file, we will contact you via email with our concerns. Should prepress email you, please note that your job is not considered fully submitted until you respond to this email. This should be factored into your turnaround time.File check does not apply to No Proof, Run As-Is. No Proof, Run As-Is jobs print from the exact file(s) you upload unless it is not possible to print because your supplied file does not match the specifications ordered.

How to check your Online PDF:
The black crop marks indicate the final trim size. The Red line ( Dashed ) indicates the (Score) The Green line ( Dashed ) indicates the (Perf). The Red Line (Solid) indicates the ( Cut or Trim ) line. The verbiage on the file, this will indicate the page position after folding.

If they note technical concerns with your file, they may email you with their concerns so you can upload a corrected file. If subsequent uploads still contain errors, you may be charged an additional prepress fee to review your file again.
