    customer has large window graphic they want, 3 parts 48" x120"
    they wanted static cling, which i can do but i am trying to talk them out of it because i think that it will be a horrible install and that big i don't think they will get the best results. the customer is going to do the install on this. they don't want vinyl because they are worried about removal. i am working a price for them with 8mil poly (no adhesive) with the adhesive dots(i forgot what it is called) i have used this before and it's removable and reusable. it does raise the price quite a bit but i think this is the best way to go. i wanted to see if anyone here had any other ideas for temporary window graphics

    thanks

    What about adhesive fabric? Easy to remove and install also

    BusMark on the outside of the glass? I'm assuming it is to be viewed by passing traffic. If it for their viewing pleasure use WallNoodle.

    i will check out those options but the one concern they have is if they put it on the outside they are afraid of people pulling it off (i don't think in my life i have ever seen anyone atempt to pull off a 4ft x 10ft graphic but people do strange things)

    Why not paper signs?

    Have you seen the poster perf or poster vue (think thats one name) by clear focus. Same as window perf but has no adheasive. Still black on the non printed side. If you are using the dot stick ups then you would do the same on this stuff. Stick on the inside of the window and you can still see through.

    Yes sir I also have a non adhesive perf that's a lot more aggressive in cost then clear focus.

    I use Avery transit vinyl .... installs easy and removes easy even years latter no glue left

    I use for my window splash .. hand letter it at shop go and install on site, cut off unwanted white.

    I use other brands also that work well but have to install vinyl then letter with those.

    Might add that some training for install is needed to make it easy.

    Also static does not hold well within a month is does start to curl. tried that with window splash on a regular customer .. demanded a switch back to white vinyl I normally used.
