Think Big or go Home: The Spectacular Art of Window Decals

One of the benefits of earning the trust of a client through producing consistently high quality results across numerous projects, is having the opportunity to work on the type of bold projects that we relish being contacted for.

And such was the case when Think Brick reached out to us for our 4th project with them, having previously worked on: a complicated printed frosting and printed whiteboard; a company event at the Hyatt hotel on Sydney harbour; an expanse of motivational wall decals, between windows that run the length of the office. But this 4th project would see us taking on a truly spectacular design that would transform their North Sydney workspace.

The intricate mosaic style office window decals required exhaustive planning throughout the design process. As the intent was to create a double-sided office interior, we needed to install a block-out film to ensure the graphics on the underside of the glass could not be seen. This allowed us to seamlessly feature window graphics and signage on either side of the glass.

The scale of this project becomes all the more apparent given that each small triangle is an individual window sticker, composed of a combination of computer cut window decals and digital print graphics to achieve the desired effect.

The meticulous production involved three people over three days, painstakingly aligning each individual triangle. Remarkably, our dedicated team at Sydney Signs Portal, still managed to complete the entire production and installation within a week.

We consider it a privilege to push the boundaries when it comes to window decals and office signs in Sydney. We hope you are suitably inspired to breathe life into your workspace in a similarly spectacular fashion. We await your contact today.

OFFICE FEATURE WALL SIGNAGE

A solid feature wall signage was recently installed by our team for one of the consulting companies in Sydney.

It was a highly demanding project which had to meet a client’s high expectations together with challenging requirements for the glass feature- wall design.

As a result – in place of an empty glass wall there is a stunning feature branded with company signs.

A feature wall signage is an important element of a corporate culture and office branding. Its impact on the clients who visit your business is very often underestimated.

Clients, employees and business partners tend to develop more loyalty when a company invests in feature wall signs, wall decals and office graphics – important elements of business identity.

Maximising workspace functionality with custom whiteboards

Gone are the days of an office whiteboard being a cumbersome, intrusive, fixed-size addition to your office. An evolution has taken place, where custom sizing, functionality and seamless inclusion are all now possible.

We love nothing more than seeing a workspace transformed in a way that takes advantage of a product’s potential. And such was the case when engineering and construction powerhouse, Bechtel, reached out to us to realise their vision of a workspace whiteboard Utopia.

Within open office spaces, meeting rooms, enclosed offices, boardrooms and storerooms – whiteboard that extended from knee height to well above head height, spanning 50 metres in length was installed. The largest single whiteboard was 7 metres in length, installed in an open office area.

To complete the aesthetic, each whiteboard will eventually be framed with aluminium strip holder.

We also installed window frosting, adding frosting strips to some of the exposed glass.

This project represents and embodies why we strive so hard to innovate within the signage industry. You will see no better example of the functionality of a workspace being maximised with custom whiteboard inclusions -at least, not until we next outdo ourselves.

And perhaps that will be with your project?

Client satisfaction is at the heart of everything we do

Occasionally there are projects we are approached to take on that require an extraordinary level of preparation. Such was the case when Uniting reached out to us to supply 200 large wall decals for their branches across Australia.

The scale of this project would see us working closely with the client to overcome specific challenges.

There was a need to perform multiple colour and material tests prior to the final print run. Getting the colour right was crucial to doing justice to the unique design. We also conducted experiments and called upon our years of experience to ensure we would supply a vinyl adhesive with the versatility of being suitable for a variety of wall surfaces.

This close consultative process with the client, coupled with the thoroughness of our preparations, resulted in a successful project, with Uniting being extremely satisfied with the wall decals we supplied.

And, ultimately, this is what we would like all potential clients to take from this: the degree to which we are prepared to go above and beyond what is expected to ensure your satisfaction.

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.
