The Films Used

Usually a 2-3 mil vinyl, polyester, or similar material

 

Why It Matters:

  • Some thin films are easy to crinkle or crease, but all thin films are very light and easily blown around by wind and drafts.
  • Some people find it difficult to handle a large piece and keep it from sticking to itself during installation.

Specially designed 8 mil adhesive-free vinyl film with UV inhibitors!

 

Why It Matters:

  • Provide better energy savings (cooler in summer, warmer in winter)
  • Easy to cut and trim
  • Resists wrinkling, creasing and tearing.
  • This adhesive-free film will not stick to itself or other things while you are peeling it from the backing paper and positioning it on the glass.
The Backing Paper

Thin backing papers can be difficult to lay flat for measuring, marking and cutting. Films with an acetate film as a backing can also be difficult to mark.

Our 10 pt backing is stiff enough that you can lay it out on a carpet for measuring and marking. The white color is excellent for drawing simple or complex shapes.

The Inks

About a 2-micron thickness of ink per color - up to 8 microns thick for stained glass colors.

 

Why It Matters:

  • Thin inks cannot create color vibrancy and are washed-out looking.
  • Thin ink layers will fade quicker than thick layers.
  • Thinner ink layers, are easier to scratch

7 microns per color - up to 28 microns thick for stained glass colors.

 

Why It Matters:

  • Thick ink and expensive pigments create a look as good as real decorative glass.
  • Our Frosted and Etched Glass inks contain a special glass pigment that refracts light like real etched glass.
  • At 28 microns thick, the Stained Glass colors have strength and vibrancy that resists fading.
  • Thick ink layers are durable and difficult to scratch.
  • A 3-year warranty (but it looks great for many more).
