Banner World Guide to One Way Vision Film Window Graphics Installation

1. CLEAN THE GLASS! It is vital that the glass is absolutely clean before fitting a graphic. The glass must be cleaned and de-greased. Use detergent or any solvent based cleaner that does not contain silicone or oil additives. Use a plain, non coloured, paper towel or lint free cloth for the final polish.

2. Turn the graphic over and place on a flat surface. From the top edge, peel back about 25-30mm of the backing paper or film and crease it, then return the backing film to the original position. This preparation will aid positioning and fitting. Avoid touching the adhesive with your fingers.

3. Offer the graphic up to the fitting position and hinge the top edge with 2”masking tape – half on the glass and half on the graphic. Check the alignment and when you are satisfied that all is correct, lift the graphic and peel away about 25-30mm of the release paper or film from the back. Let the graphic fall into position without the adhesive taking a strong hold and recheck positioning. The folded backing will help keep the adhesive off the glass. Tack the top edge, ensuring that it goes down flat and true. Next, peel away about 6”/100mm of backing film. Start at the top centre and wipe downwards and outwards using a flat felt squeegee blade. Peel away another 6”/100mm of backing film and continue with overlapping strokes downwards and outwards until finished. Be aware that perforated film is very flimsy and easy to crease, so treat it gently. It is almost impossible to get trapped air bubbles with perforated film! Gently remove the masking tape. Pull it across the film at an acute angle, not at 90 degrees.

4. The above describes a dry application suitable for perforated films, For solid films a wet application is recommended. This involves spraying a film of fine water droplets or application fluid, such as Rapid Tac, from a plant sprayer on the glass after the graphic is positioned but before applying the adhesive. The droplets hold the adhesive off the glass until pressure is applied. This method ensures good adhesion and minimises air bubbles being trapped under the film. Any bubbles can be pricked using a scalpel or needle and then wiped down. For pvc static cling films, use the above method for application. Before removing the backing paper, wet thoroughly with water to soften the paper, so that it may be removed without lifting the film off as well. Pull it across the film at an acute angle, not at 90 degrees.

5. Ambient temperature range, for fitting, is recommended to be 15C-25C. Most adhesives work better and form a stronger bond when warm. If working in cold conditions below 10C, the gentle use of a hot air gun (or hairdryer) on the film, as it is applied, is recommended. If the film or glass is particularly cold, the adhesive will be slow to tack and the film will be more brittle and require more careful handing. Avoid application in direct summer sunlight as the film can become very soft and difficult to handle and the adhesive very tacky with a tendency to “grab” on contact. All adhesives will “cure” over a period of 6-24 hours until full adhesion has been obtained. Avoid washing or otherwise disturbing the graphic for a 24-48 hour period if possible.

6. Remember, the adhesive for any film graphic will only stick properly if the surface is clean and the film is applied correctly.

7. Removal of window graphics will be greatly eased by the use of a hot air gun or hairdryer to soften the adhesive as you peel it away from the glass.

Artwork Guidelines Back to top


Before submitting artwork, please make sure you have read these guidelines carefully

We check all artworks prior to printing.  If we see any issues with your artwork we will notify you before printing. If we see an issue we will contact you and your order will be placed on hold until we have a response.  Please read information on this link for more information on our file checks and print processes Our processes and pre print file checking

We do try and spot errors however we cannot accept responsibility for any incorrect printing due to setup / artwork error.

Setting your artwork correctly

Banner World Ltd doesn't offer a design service.  Please ensure that your artwork is set correctly.  If you are unsure about creating artwork or have no understanding of setting artworks then please seek the assistance of a Graphic Designer.  If you don't have print ready artwork then DO NOT place the order.  If you would like to speak to us then please call us on 01253 897 840 or email sales@bannerworld.co.uk

File Formats

We only accept files in PDF, AI, EPS, JPEG, PSD or TIF Formats
(Tif / PSD files must be flattened)

Type & Text

All Text on files should ideally be converted to outlines, curves or paths.  Please make sure text is converted if possible in your software before saving PDF files.

Colour Settings

All Files should be set to CMYK format.  Please make sure there are no spot colours or pantones in your artwork as this can output unexpected results. As our service is a CMYK 4 colour process we cannot guarantee exact matches to Pantone, Ral or Spot colours.

Colour Matching

Please supply files in a CMYK format. Files supplied to us in an RGB format will be automatically converted to CMYK and you will not be notified of this. Please be aware that Print machines, hand held devices and desktop printers will interpret and show colours differently to each other. We cannot be held responsible for colours printing incorrectly due to errors in supplied print files.
We print on a wide range of different machines and cannot guarantee a perfect match from one print method to another. Due to print tolerances and the nature of our business we cannot guarantee an exact match to something that is shown on a computer screen.  Most creams, greys and CMYK printed golds can print differently to how they look on screen.
If you are unsure regarding colours then please ask or quote a Pantone reference. Pantone colour matching is an extra charge of £30+vat per colour. Due to the nature and limitations of the CMYK printing system exact Pantone matches cannot be guaranteed. Please note that Pantone references used in print files will be converted to CMYK prior to printing which will not guarantee a colour match.
For larger jobs it is advisable to order a minimum order sample of the colour before ordering, but doing this will delay the order for another 5-6 working days.

For certain items an artwork template is supplied on the product page.  These templates are only for items which are set to a specified size. Ie feather flags / deckchairs etc.  This will need downloading and your artwork setting on the template prior to ordering.  If using the template please assign a separate layer for the artwork and save as a layered pdf, ai or eps file.  Please embed images and create outlines on the type before saving.

Double sided banners

We have special software which flips certain parts of your banners so as to create a seamless pocket on the opposite side. When ordering a double sided banner please just follow the above steps, as the file(s) will need to be set up in the same way. If you require a different image on each side of your double sided banner not a problem, just upload x2 files stating that you require a different image on each side.
