Printing more complex images onto vinyl and film is now so easy to do and has many benefits over a design simply cut out of vinyl. The printing technique means the design can be more elaborate and intricate and in any colour imaginable! A 'frost' effect, mimicking acid etched glass, can also be printed and it can be printed in any opacity of colour desired.
Because there is no time consuming 'weeding out' of complex designs it's more cost-effective too and much less likely to be picked off the glass. Technology also allows us to print onto clear, safety film meaning existing glass can also be brought up to european standards.
