Window Cling - Full Color (front only)
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.
X - Frame Stand: Compiled of fiberglass and aluminum, X-Frame Stands weigh under 3 lb. and assemble in seconds.
13oz. Matte Vinyl: Water resistant and sturdy enough for outdoor use, Matte Vinyl creates a flat background that helps your text or design pop on the banner.
10mil Super Smooth Banner: With two super smooth white vinyl outer surfaces and a center black layer designed to block light from showing through the banner, this material is perfect for printing high quality graphics that will not be affected by light from behind.

File Setup: 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.
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.
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.
Use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for image files.
Specify trim area with crop marks. (Don't place crop marks inside the work area.)
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.
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 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.
Proofs and File Check: We offer two 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. 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.
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.
