Stunning effects can be created by combining glass and your graphic design. Keep the design flowing, by digitally printing adjacent wall surfaces too.
WHAT WE NEED
Simply provide us with the dimensions of the area to be covered, and the image or artwork you require.
All normal artwork formats are acceptable. Images should be ideally a minimum 300 dpi quarter size for best results. For graphics and lettering, we recommend artwork in Vector format. We automatically interpolate artwork, to achieve optimum quality at no extra charge.
Our graphics team will advise and guide on all aspects of your design. We will help source images and check the suitability of any artwork provided. If you require Tektura to create artwork on your behalf, or to change existing artwork, this will be subject to extra cost.
TEKTURA STUDIO & GUEST DESIGNERS
These designs are exclusive to Tektura, and have been created in collaboration with guest artists, photographers, graphic designers and graduates. They can be printed onto window film, and are also suitable for wallcoverings or acrylic art.
Every design has been tried and tested, and looks fabulous, even when printed up to 3 metres tall. We can crop and resize to fill an entire floor to ceiling area, or to create a smaller focal point.
If you have not yet sourced artwork, or are just looking for ideas, you may find it useful to search an internet-based image library. Images can be purchased direct from these libraries. We can of course help with sourcing, and will always check suitability of image for you.
On receipt of artwork, we provide two samples for approval; one sample is a portion of the full size image, to show print quality and colour; the second sample shows a mini version of the complete image.
Initial samples are free. Subsequent samples may be subject to extra cost.
Window film base material is clear or frosted. We can print any colour, including white, and supply as follows:
- in panels/sheets to maximum width 1520mm.
- profile cut
Our software splits the image into panels according to the window to be decorated.
We can print full colour and white.
Once samples are approved, lead time for finished window graphics is usually 7 to 10 days. We will always try and accommodate tighter deadlines.
Window graphics are straightforward to install. Full hanging instructions are supplied with each order, and lengths are marked to ensure installation in the correct sequence. A minimum 10mm selvedge is included on all edges, to allow for trimming on site.
Profile cut window graphics are supplied without selvedge on application tape.
We can recommend independent, experienced installers throughout the UK and Ireland. Please contact us for details
