Digital print on frosted film: introducing the lightbox effect to your workspace

An evening walk along the pathway in any of Sydney’s popular dining districts, will have your attention competed for by a myriad of lightboxes. These beacons of advertising and marketing are the sign of choice to catch your eye in a crowded competitive market space.

There is something about these illuminated signs that the human eye finds quite mesmerising.

Your window to the world of business opportunities: glass print one way see through film

Looking to create impact with your front of business marketing? Perhaps privacy or security is required for your location? The beauty of glass print one way see through film is that it offers both these solutions and much more.

What is it and how does it work?

One-way vision film is printable perforated self-adhesive vinyl. When viewed from the outside, the public can see a graphic window print, displaying your marketing or branding. But its truly amazing quality is that anyone inside the window, looking out, can see the outside world. It achieves this by taking advantage of human optics.

 

Our eye is naturally drawn to brighter colours. The graphic is printed onto the white vinyl film surface, while the holes are not white or printed, so remain darker. This means that when the graphic window print is viewed from the outside it appears solid, but with the adhesive side being dark, when viewed from the inside, our eyes are drawn to the bright, outside world.

And while it works on any scale, what this fantastic product allows you to do is think big when it comes to your graphic window print. Having your entire business front window covered in glass print one way see through film will give you incredible presence, and enable you to dominate the otherwise crowded Sydney advertising space.

Please contact our experienced team at Sydney Signs Portal today to take advantage of this wonderful marketing opportunity.

Through an aesthetic lens: Transforming a Sydney office with a stunning glass wall mural

When you are contacted by a prominent Sydney photographer, tasked with the responsibility of creating a spectacular digital print wall mural, using an original photograph – you know the results will be something special.

Initially, we created a resolution proof using the client’s first choice photograph. Upon issuing that proof, the client decided they wanted to change the photo being used, so we issued another resolution proof which met with her satisfaction.

digital-print-glass-window-sydney-cbd

This is just a glimpse of the processes we have in place to ensure that the office signage we produce and install will meet or exceed your expectations.

The next significant challenge to overcome was installation.

When you are installing a digital print wall mural, measuring 6.5m x 2.4m, across 7 adjoining glass partitions, you know that hours of precise, painstaking work lay ahead. And, as is sometimes the case in an office setting, desks hindering access to the panels only added to the challenge.

We usually have 1 -2 meters of clearance off the windows, this time we had desks fixed in place just 4.5cm away from the window, which in first glance seemed impossible.

However, six hours later, and to the delight of the client who was sharing the process with her 1.5 million Instagram followers, our work was complete. And before our eyes was a truly spectacular digital print wall mural. A stunning impact piece, and a perfect example of how well-produced and seamlessly installed office signage has the power to completely transform the space.

Timeframe
Tell us your deadline. This will allow us to prioritise your quote accordingly.

Size matters
Even if you are only able to pass on approximate sizing of the window decal, wall sticker or signage that you want, the dimensions will go a long way to determining the pricing, so please include sizing when you can.

Similar applies to glass frosting or privacy film. Let us know the width of the glass panels – along with how many panels there are – and the height you would like the window frosting to be (1200mm height is standard).

Photos
Including photos of where you would like your wall graphics, window decals or window frosting installed is a huge help to us. This enables us to better predict any obstacles we may encounter, or judge approximate sizing if you are not able to provide that yourself.

Inside or outside?
Let us know if you would like your window decal on the inside or outside of the glass. Production and installation is generally simpler when the adhesive is on the underside of your window graphics – so be sure to let us know if you have a preference.

Supporting Community with Signage for The Sydney Vegan Market

Here at Sydney Signs Portal, we pay more than lip service to the ethical values we aim to run our business by. This means occasionally declining work – usually on the grounds that we are not comfortable with supporting businesses involving animal exploitation.

So you can imagine the excitement we felt when approached by Vegan NSW to assist with the signage needed for their monthly Sydney Vegan Market.

A range of custom made signs, logos, banners, digital prints and more were required for this major event. Because we were working for a charitable organisation, and a lifestyle our entire team is passionate about, we were happy to donate time and resources, ensuring costs were kept to a minimum – not a simple task when small business like ours takes on such a large-scale project.

The market is held on the 3rd Sunday of every month at the grounds of The Sydney Portugal Community Club in Marrickville. The signage we created for it serves functionally, while you’re surrounded by great food and so much more at this truly spectacular community event.

The allure of gold decals

Some projects stand out from the initial email contact – and such was the case when we were contacted by a boutique wine outlet in Sydney.

The plan was to use gold decals for their shopfront retail signage. And when you combine gold window stickers with exquisite design, the results, as you can see, are spectacular.

This is also a great example of incorporating the architectural features of the shopfront with the design. The tall vertical balustrades frame the glass decals, showcasing the business signage as the work of art it turned out to be.

Making Signage the Centrepiece of your Event

When you spend as much time designing, producing and installing: window frosting, glass decals, wall murals, shopfront signage and office wall stickers – for businesses, you can overlook what a significant component of our work creating event signage has been over the years. But when the incredibly talented folk at Valiant Event Styling entrusted us with an urgent job for an event they were working on, we were reminded of this fact in our favourite way possible.

The brief was simply the type of challenge our team at Sydney Signs Portal has grown to relish: to produce a multi-panel wall mural to be installed the following day. This included a consultative element from our most experienced team member to advise the client on how to resolve certain technical aspects of the project, or, as the client put it: “He went out of his way by providing advice on image specs… and suggested solutions to ensure the best result.”

Our team worked late into the night to produce the printed mural in time for the event. And, as you can see, the results were spectacular.

We enjoyed working with the professional team at valiant, and look forward to working with them in the future.

And be sure to make our team your first port of call for any of your event signage needs. We can advise you on the type of signage, murals or decals that will help your event become the spectacular success you are hoping for.

Custom-made Safety Decals

Are you aware if the safety decals on your office glass partitions are of a standard that will actually prevent your staff and clients from walking into the glass and potentially sustaining injury?

SAFETY-STRIP-SYDNEY

Have you ascertained that your existing glass safety bands contrast sufficiently with your office interior to ensure there are no collisions with the glass? This can often occur when the office interior design is changed, or a wall mural or sign is added to an office, subsequent to the installation of glass safety marks.

glass-safety-stripe-sydney

As a business owner or manager, it is incumbent upon you to ensure that the windows and glass doors in your office comply with the minimum safety requirements. And, of course, it is desirable that your glazing mark decals be pleasing to the eye and incorporate appropriately with your office interior.

glass-safety-marking-decals-sydney

Too many people make the assumption that they are limited in their choice of glass manifestation safety decals. However, here at Sydney Signs Portal, we have a wealth of experience in designing and creating glass safety marks that reflect your company’s branding, colours and logo. All that, while still meeting glass safety requirements. It is that dual purpose – of safety and branding – that our team is always mindful of, and has spent years perfecting.

Safety-Glass-Markers-sydney

There are several ways that safety decal branding can be done. Your company logo or company name can be printed on frosted safety decals. Elements of your company branding can be cut out of the safety band, a process that offers countless variations. In fact, your options are endless and limited only by imagination.

glazing-bands-sydney

We have a proud history at Sydney Signs Portal of specialising in designing, creating and installing custom made decals, wall graphics and signs. We have taken great care and developed a deep understanding of legal requirements to include safety decals among the list of products we specialise in tailoring specifically to your office.

safety-strip-markers-sydney

It is often the smaller details that leave a lasting impression. Your clients will appreciate the creative approach of expressing branding in glass safety stickers, and be impressed with the accompanying attention to a pleasing aesthetic. Noticing that level of care on a feature as seemingly minor as a glass safety band, speaks clearly to client, telling them that they are in good hands.
