    Go easy on me, okay guys and gals! :Big Laugh
    I rarely do vehicle windows, so to some of you this may be a no brainer! I still thought it was worth asking though, as I want to be sure. Got a request from a new customer today via e-mail....
    I've included the images she sent. And yes, I will definitely be paying someone for the design portion of this job! :notworthy:
    So, I am assuming that the best and likely "legal" way to do this is with window perf? Sounds like the customer wants contour cut grass (OMG :omg:) along the bottom with cut vinyl above, but I'm thinking it would be much better looking (and easier) just to print full window perf, laminate and slap it on... :covereyes: What say you experienced folks? And for the record, I have done a fair bit of window perf application in 3M training and seem to have the hang of it!!

    Let it begin....

    Ooh... I never considered printing on the Gerber... with the white prime... on clear... yes, that is a good option if she doesn't want the full perf. Thanks for bringing that up Pat! You know I have too much equipment when I don't think of these things!! :banghead:

    She needs to wrap the whole back to cover up that rust hole.

    ..haha i was thinking that also

    window perf (or just printed vinyl, didn't know there was a law aboutcovering the rear window?) laminated would be your best best
    if you go with cut vinyl or in pieces they will have issues if they use the wiper

    will the blades of grass even be noticeable via perf?
    What about a full print in trans. and add contour-cut perforated material to make the logo pop?

    the ladybug could even be added as an opaque print/cut.

    Maybe you can talk this woman in getting a full wrap, her vehicle looks like shyt. Why would you send that artwork out, the grass is a Illustrator brush, and the clouds you can get free from Vecteazy.

    You need to incorporate that rust streak somehow :) Looks kinda like mud running down the back of the door.
