    (didnt know if this belonged here or in vehicle graphics, since it applies to both)

    what size perf do you guys usually choose to run on windows? obviously 30% is going to look better. Im peeved when i see a nice graphic or wrap and the window look outta place because the perf holes are too big.

    any particular vehicles with bad blind spots that you decided to use larger perf?

    Im doing a rear window and some of the lettering is pretty thin, so im gonna go with the smaller perf for looks.

    thanks for the input folks

    the general rule of thumb is 50/50 on vehicles and 60/40 on buildings
    at least this is what has worked good here

    I think by law you have to use 50/50 on any and all vehicles.

    IL & WI Law says must allow more than 35% of light in for the back windows. Which means using 70/30 would be illegal in IL & WI.

    But IL says you must have side mirrors if you have your windows tinted. WI doesn't care if you have side mirrors or not.

    However Iowa law says any darkness can be used and they don't care if you have side mirrors or not.

    I have been selling perf for a long long time and have never seen an issue using the 60/40 for both applications. Its darn near impossible to tell the difference in the hole patterns.

    Denver.
    60/40 Is illegal in most states...(not that they ever enforce it)
    50/50 is required passenger vehicles.

    I understand, I'm just saying I have never had a problem. I carry both but just think its not something anyone really enforces.
