    Hey Guys,

    We are planning on applying a large colorful print to our front windows using window perf. We have a few questions...

    - Apply to inside or out?
    - Laminate?
    - 70/30? 60/40? 50/50?
    - Any application techniques?
    - Specific types/brands we should try using.

    Thanks again Guys!

    inside, if possible, otherwise outside
    yes, liquid laminate >spray laminate > sheet laminate
    the former
    don't wet apply if laminated, heck dont wet apply at all

    Find BigFish on the forum he sells perf and it is good quality. I have used it for a few years now. You cant beat his prices.

    Adhesive backed perf pretty much has to go on outside.

    If you dont lam it it goes down like super air release.

    If its laminated (I recomend laminating perf for longevity and visability on vehicles) then just go slow it will want to trap some air in the holes dont worry about it unless its a huge bubble most of the time it will settle out in a few days and look good.
    Also if laminated and you push hard with the squegee the laminate will stick to the window again dont freak out just give it some time and it will pop back up and look good.
