From a complete storefront makeover to a simple window decal, window graphics give your business a sophisticated appearance, can add privacy to your establishment and attract potential new customers. The following five signs are excellent determining factors to help you decide whether window graphics are right for your business.
1. YOU WANT A HIGH LEVEL OF FOOT TRAFFIC
If you have a high level of foot traffic around your business, you will naturally achieve more customer conversions. You can prioritize your window advertising as an effective way to draw people’s attention to your products and services in the hustle and bustle of the day.

2. YOU WANT TO PROVIDE INFORMATION TO YOUR CUSTOMERS
Vinyl window graphics that promote your services, products and branding are advertising to prospective clients. You can also set the tone and expectations to draw shoppers into your store. Are your graphics colorful and fancy or simple with basic information? Follow the company brand in color, tone and positioning. Are you an unknown high-end specialty retailer or a well-known franchise? In the foodservice industry, eye-level decals with accepted payment types, loyalty programs and new signature menu items can be beneficial for your customers.
Window graphics and decals are also an effective way to list relevant information in an accessible area to your customers, such as your store hours, phone number, website, social media details, current sales, and promotional specials.
3. YOU WANT TO CREATE PRIVACY
While window graphics are useful for showcasing your products and services, they are also an effective way to provide privacy and shade. Perhaps you want to keep people from peering into your office, or you want to reduce the sun’s glare for your employees and customers. A well-placed decal can shield your business’ interior from the sun’s rays and solve the problem of outside distractions.

Window graphics allow your customers to know what services and products you offer. Innovative and efficient window decals build valuable brand recognition for your business.
Want to increase your company’s approachability? Window graphics create awareness and help lead people through your customer experience while emphasizing what differentiates your business.
DIFFERENT STYLES OF WINDOW GRAPHICS
The two main types of window graphics are first-surface and second-surface. While first-surface graphics adhere to the exterior of your store window and face outward, second-surface graphics adhere to the inside of your window.
There are many different styles of business window graphics, and what you choose depends on your business’ branding and marketing goals. The following five styles are excellent options to consider when you want to reach out to customers.
While your windows can allow a lot of natural light into your business, it can be nice to have more privacy. Frosted or crystal window graphics use “frosted” vinyl, giving them an etched appearance but with a removable product—ideal for businesses and offices in leased spaces. Frosted graphics offer privacy while still allowing light to pass through, making them a convenient midway option for businesses looking to provide an elegant appearance that maintains privacy.
Perforated window decals are another option that let you advertise on your windows while offering privacy to those working inside your business. Through their unique micro-perforated vinyl, perforated window graphics allow you to view the printed graphic from the outside while still seeing out the window from the inside. Since perforated graphics don’t block the view of people inside, you can cover your business’ entire span of windows and provide shade while promoting your products and services.
A clear window graphic is an image printed directly onto decorative vinyl material that provides a clear view from inside and outside of your business. A clear window decal is completely see-through where it does not contain your design, which allows you to display your logo, image or message on your window without obstructing your customers or employees view. You can also use a wide variety of colors and gradients for your design.
Standard opaque window graphics are the most common type used for advertising. Opaque window graphics make your designs pop while obscuring the view from inside and outside your business. Since opaque graphics are often more visible than designs printed on clear vinyl, they are excellent for indoor and outdoor use. Opaque window decals are especially useful for posting store hours or advertising a particular logo or brand with unique shapes.
5. VINYL LETTERING
Custom vinyl lettering is a classic choice to transform your existing window space both outside and inside your business when you need to advertise anything from hours to contact information. Vinyl lettering is cut into shapes from solid-colored vinyl sheets to create a customized design. Vinyl lettering is also durable and can withstand all sorts of weather. And it’s easy to remove allowing you to change your messages to promote updated offerings and information.
