Glazed and Enthused - Unprinted Film

Want decorative film for interior doors or windows without providing a print-ready design? This type of installation is referred to as glazing.

Typically, we schedule a site survey, take measurements, and provide an estimate. Your typical glazing could come from a number of manufacturers such as 3M, Oracal, Mactac, Solyx, and could include a number of finishes in varying levels of privacy.

Once your design is ready, let’s schedule a site survey and determine the best path to print and install your film.  There are many ways to add color and incorporate branding into your decorative film project. Cushing prints directly to films such as MacTac, Oracal, and 3M dusted crystal.

Media Options

We typically carry: 48” inch and 60” inch rolls of dusted crystal, 48” inch rolls of Mactac Frosted, and special purchase from Solyx.

What is Privacy Film Weeding in the Office

Weeding privacy film has nothing to do with your garden! Learn more about the process we use for office projects.

Keep It Simple

As the title implies, these are less complicated film weeding projects.

For example, they include letters and shapes with contours at least 2-3” (inches) wide. This is the bottom tier of time and labor investment for weeding material. It does require manual cutting of your project which is a hands-on task, completed by your Cushing production team.

It is priced at $0.90 per square foot or $108 per hour.

All in Moderation

This is the next tier of weeding. It includes letters, shapes, contours that are about one inch 1” wide.

Projects have several curves or cut-outs that need to be addressed. For example, a triangle shape inside the graphic. For letters, this may include an Capital A or D-shaped cut-out in the letter. This is priced at $1.75/ SF  or $140 per hour. As with any rush or quick turn project scenario, there will be fees associated.

Detailed Weeding of Office Privacy Vinyl

These are projects that require a sophisticated level of weeding.

Letters, shapes and contours are tight-lined (less than ¾” of an inch), with very small and intricate areas to weed out.  Small cut-outs require very detailed and delicate effort to complete. This runs $3.25 per SF or $225 per hour

Any rush requests or considerations will require extra fees to complete.
