Elevator Restoration on a Budget

By decorative films, Wall Wraps No Comments

Elevator Restoration for a Fraction of the Cost

A dirty, scratched, or dated-looking elevator doesn’t exactly inspire confidence from its passengers. If anything, it’s more like a horror movie and the passengers are waiting for the elevator to drop. Since being packed into an elevator with a group of strangers is already uncomfortable enough for a lot of people, you want your elevator interior to feel like a safe, clean space that gives people a good impression of your property and makes them feel at ease. Your elevator will give its passengers an instant impression of your building and your business, so you need to make sure it’s a good one. 

If the interior of your elevator is so broken or so damaged that pieces need to be replaced, you might need a remodel. However, if the problem is normal wear-and-tear – things like graffiti, scratched surfaces, or outdated style, refinishing your elevator is just as effective and far more cost-effective than a complete remodel. Enter 3M DI-NOC and Belbien in metallic finishes. 

Why You Should Resurface Your Elevator Rather Than Remodel

Your elevator is an important touchpoint for your customers. It gives them an all-too-important first impression of your building and your business, and if your elevator is dingy, defaced, or even a little dated, it can send the wrong message. Luckily, you don’t have to break the bank to give your elevator a facelift and create an aesthetic that makes them feel like they’ve chosen the right place to do business. Here are just a few reasons why you should choose to resurface rather than remodel your elevator interior:

  • It’s Cheaper
    Not only does refinishing save you valuable time because of the ease of installation, but refinishing rather than remodeling your elevator can literally save you thousands of dollars in material costs. Gutting the inside of an elevator and replacing worn but perfectly serviceable materials is far less cost-effective than refinishing the surfaces by adding architectural film and wraps, which come in an endless variety of textures, colors, and finishes that will make your elevator look brand-new in no time. You could even give it a silk-like appearance…if you’re into that sort of thing.
  • It’s Environmentally-Friendly
    Fully remodeling an elevator typically means that there will be parts of your existing elevator that will be scrapped and thrown away entirely. This is unnecessary in many cases, as most surfaces are simply outdated and can be refinished rather than replaced. When you remodel an elevator interior, you throw away all the old parts, which need to be replaced entirely. In most cases, these surfaces are fine – if they are still structurally sound, all they need is a makeover, not a replacement. Think makeover instead of plastic surgery. Resurfacing with architectural film creates far less waste, and protects the underlying surfaces for years to come.
  • Less Time to Install and Less Disruption to Your Business
    If you choose to refresh your elevator with wraps or films, your elevator will not need to be recertified as it would if you were to perform a full remodel. Our service teams can be in and out in a fraction of the time a full remodel would take, leaving your elevator looking good as new in much less time. Architectural films like 3M DI-NOC or Belbien require very little preparation, no demolition or construction, and less equipment, which results in a faster installation process with minimal impact on your daily business. We will even come in during closed hours to reduce the impact as much as possible, a literal transformation overnight!
  • Give Your Elevator Character
    Riding in an elevator can be a terrible experience. We’ve all been there, forced into awkward silence and interactions with people we don’t know. Why not give people something pleasant to look at during that awkward silence, or better yet, provide customers with something that’s going to start a conversation? Elevators don’t need to be a simple silver metallic– they can be– but they can be so much more with the hundreds of options from 3M DI-NOC and Belbien.

Preventative Care and Restoration

Finishing your elevator interior with a wrap or film will not only elevate its appearance, but it will also protect the interior of the elevator and preserve the original materials for longer. Most elevator interiors are finished with metals such as steel or copper that scratch easily. A film such as 3M DI-NOC is scratch-resistant and available in many metallic finishes. If you have a new elevator, we also offer clear protective films that protect your walls and floor from normal wear and tear. NGS also specializes in the installation of metal and glass anti-graffiti coatings, which allow you to renew metal and glass surfaces without undergoing an expensive replacement. Mirror and metal finishes are available that allow you to install a protective surface directly over the damaged underlying material, which will renew the surface appearance and save you thousands of dollars.

Why waste time, money, and materials when you could make your elevator look brand-new in a fraction of the time?

Bathroom featuring traditional standard glass mirrors with mirror protection film

Mirror Design and Resurfacing

By decorative films No Comments

Mirror film is one of the most versatile products that we offer. It can be used to create decorative mirrors, as decorative privacy window film, and to resurface existing mirrors to make them like new. Mirrors also have the benefit of making spaces feel larger and lighter, which can be necessary for smaller spaces… because no one likes to feel claustrophobic. 

Let’s explore the three primary ways to use mirror film: Decorative use, decorative privacy window film, and resurfacing mirrors. 

Mirror Film For Decorative Use 

Need your small space to feel bigger, or want to create a feature wall using mirrored designs? Mirror film can be the perfect solution to create decorative wall mirrors, feature walls, a full-length wall mirror, among many other decorative mirror ideas – the only limit is your imagination! 

Decorative mirrors help create interest in your space and make spaces feel larger. Traditional mirrors can shatter, creating the potential for injury. They also weigh a significant amount, requiring screws and special hanging mechanisms to bear the weight. Mirror film gives the effect of a mirror, without the weight, without the risk of injury, and can easily be made into many different shapes and sizes. 

After choosing the look you want to go for, and having the mirror film installed, you can add decorative picture frames or other features to the wall to really make it a feature of the space. Something entirely unique to your commercial building or office. 

Additionally, mirrors, especially large ones, are often very expensive. Mirror film is a fraction of the cost of mirrors, making it much more cost-effective for creating a feature wall. 

Decorative Privacy Window Film – Mirror Edition

One-way privacy film is another use for mirrored film, which allows one to see through the glass on one side of the glass and only offers a mirrored surface if looking from the other side. This application can be particularly useful for creating a decorative feel, while still offering privacy for sensitive information or meetings that need to be conducted. 

The benefit is that you also don’t have to choose one solid surface, but can create patterns as well, only blocking out sections of the glass, or the sections that would show any sensitive information. Mirrors also create an effect of space and roominess that can be particularly useful for spaces that have a lot of walls and can feel a bit claustrophobic. Often a symptom of cubicles! 

Mirror Shield to Resurface Existing Mirrors

Public restroom mirrors scratched and chipped? Wondering why you’re going to replace those mirrors…again? We get it. Replacing an entire mirror, and creating waste that goes into landfills, just for a scratch, chip, or crack is financially and environmentally unsustainable. Not to mention, the inconvenience of needing to close a restroom just to replace a mirror. 

Thankfully, anytime your mirror gets scratched, vandalized, chipped, or cracked, it’s easy enough to resurface and restore it. Mirror shield can take seemingly ruined mirrors and, with some mirror film and a professional mirror film installer, you can create a perfectly smooth, clear mirrored image in only a few minutes. 

Mirrored film is incredibly cost-effective, versatile, and can transform your office or home, making it feel airy and giving the illusion of more space. It’s also perfect for sprucing up those old mirrors to make them like new again.

Lobby Design and Redesign on a Budget

By decorative films, Floor Graphics, Wall Wraps No Comments

“Never judge a book by its cover.” It’s a common saying, one you’ve probably heard your whole life. It’s good advice, but it doesn’t change the fact that first impressions do matter, especially when it comes to your business. Your lobby is the first physical touchpoint your customers have with your building beyond its exterior, and lobby design matters. It’s the place where they make their first impression. As a business owner, you know how much that first impression matters. 

If your lobby is feeling a little dated and you’re considering an expensive remodel that will take valuable time away from your business, there are other options available to you that can make your lobby feel brand-new and nail that all-too-important first impression without completely remodeling. Wraps and window films can refresh and transform the appearance of your lobby and can be applied to walls, floors, ceilings, your receptionist’s desk, casework, doors, windows, and more. 

The Bottom Line: Architectural Wraps Save Time and Money

If you’re thinking about undergoing a full or partial lobby remodel, chances are your business’s main welcome area will be overrun by demolition, construction, and installation crews for days, weeks, or months depending on the scope of the project. Often, this is completely unnecessary and far more expensive than simply refreshing your lobby by updating its aesthetics with window film, wall graphics, and surface graphics. Spruce up the surfaces in your lobby with textures, patterns, and creative designs to create an engaging, modern space where customers feel welcome, for a fraction of the price of a full remodel. You don’t need to spend a fortune to create a “wow” factor. 

Our service teams are minimally intrusive, and take far less time than a full remodel. Keep your business functional while our expert service crews apply wraps and films to transform your space.  We will even come in during closed hours – depending on the project size, we can completely transform your lobby overnight!

  • Better for the Environment
    Architectural wraps like 3M DI-NOC and Belbien are eco-friendly. Refreshing your lobby with architectural wraps uses far fewer materials than tearing your lobby apart, throwing away the old materials, and replacing them. Plus, the next time you need a refresh, it’s as easy as putting on a new wrap!
  • Wraps and Films Improve Lifespan As Well As Appearance
    Not only are wall wraps an affordable way to refresh your lobby’s appearance and give it some character, they also protect your existing surfaces from further damage and normal wear and tear.
  • Use Architectural Film to Add Color or Texture to Make Your Lobby Stand Out
    Architectural films and wraps allow you almost unlimited options to customize your lobby’s interior. Metal, stone, and wood textures are only a small selection of our offerings and are nearly indiscernible from the real thing. Floor graphics, wall graphics, and even ceiling graphics can help you create an engaging space that will wow customers as soon as they walk in the door. Plus, these graphics can help with wayfinding if your office, hospital, or hotel could use a bit of directions.

Window Film and Window Wraps: Small Changes that Make a Big Impact

Window and film decals don’t need to be full, opaque or tinted window dressings. Sometimes, less is more. Window film allows you to add logos, patterns, or other designs to the glass surfaces in your building. For the more adventurous decorators, or those who need to make glass-walled spaces more private, smart films are available that can turn from transparent to opaque with the flip of a switch, creating a more dynamic space and eliminating the need for blinds or shades.

Student in a classroom learning about school safety

School Safety Window Film Comparison

By decorative films, Education, Floor Graphics, safety & security Films, window film No Comments

You’re in charge of school safety and security for your district, which is a heavy responsibility. Ensuring the safety of students, staff, and school visitors from all manner of dangers requires you to think a few steps ahead of potential threats, every day

You know how important active security measures are (that’s why you run safety drills and why each classroom has a laminated booklet that outlines lockdown and shelter-in-place procedures), but you may not know how effective passive security measures can be. 

The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission’s report states that schools should “Design windows, framing and anchoring systems to be shatter-resistant, burglar resistant, and forced entry resistant,” and states that “Resistance for glazing may be built into the window or applied with a film,” so let’s talk about security film, as well as other passive security tactics you can use to keep your district safe.

Shatter-Resistant Security Film

Shatter-resistant security film is one of your best defenses against everything from natural disasters to bomb blasts to intruders. Some of the leading brand names for this type of film include 3M Ultra and TRI-SHIELD.

Check out the active shooter simulation/ demo video conducted with Houston ISD PD  & NGS, using with 3M Ultra & TRI-SHIELD!

3M shatter-resistant film and TRI-SHIELD deliver tear-resistant technology with up to 42 micro-layers of protection and frame anchoring systems that: 

  • Prevent glass shatter and flying glass shards or spall, post-impact
  • Strengthen glass to resist breakage when hit with a weapon
  • Maintain glass structure, even after eventual breakage, requiring intruders to break all the glass before gaining entry
  • Buy time. Slow down or potentially prevent entry during an active shooter or forced entry event

It’s important to note that shatter-resistant film is not shatterproof. There is no such thing as shatterproof security window film. Instead, many schools use extremely strong, breach resistant Riot Glass which relies on an attractively invisible rail mounting solution for virtually shatterproof polycarbonate windows.

Privacy Window Film

Decorative privacy window film and one way privacy window film create safe zones that block a potential shooter’s view into classrooms and other indoor areas – without blocking natural daylighting. 

Innovative film solutions such as 3M Fasara and 3M Mirror Film support student, staff, and visitor safety because they:

  • Obscure the view into classrooms, activity areas, and administrative zones
  • Maintain a modern, welcoming façade with solid security
  • Prevent successful sniper attacks by blocking exterior views 

For privacy on demand, today’s school safety supervisors are increasingly choosing smart film, which transforms glass from clear to opaque with the tap of a button.

Wayfinding Graphics 

In an emergency, your #1 task is to get students, staff, and visitors to safety. Wayfinding floor graphics and wayfinding signage graphics can help direct everyone to safe zones protected by shatter-resistant film and privacy window film. 

Wayfinding graphics are especially useful in district administrative or activity buildings because these areas host guests who are unfamiliar with these buildings’ security drill procedures. 

Leading wayfinding products such as 3M Envision and 3M Controltac help ensure safety because they:

  • Can be placed anywhere – walls, windows, glass, or floors
  • Adhere to outside surfaces, such as playground equipment, blacktops, and sidewalks
  • Provide clear safety directions that help to maintain order in chaotic situations

To enhance security, a graphic installation expert can apply durable overlaminates that make your graphics anti-skid, as well as reflective in low light situations.

Get the Right Window Films for School Safety

Modern security film solutions for schools are effective, affordable, durable, and come with a fast installation process. In addition, many security window films can be combined with energy-efficient film solutions that deliver cost-saving benefits.

Do You Have All the Facts on Privacy Window Film for Your Business?

By decorative films, window film No Comments

What do you imagine when you think of privacy window film? Perhaps a generic window tint? Unwelcoming, blacked-out, or darkened windows creating an isolated space? If so, we encourage you to imagine your workspace privacy in a whole new way and start seeing the unlimited potential of your space.

When it comes to privacy film, there’s a lot more to it than you might think. With the right unique film, businesses can take advantage of so much more than just privacy because the right film will also offer incredible opportunity.

Far Better than Simple Privacy

Different people imagine different things when thinking of privacy window film because there truly is so much room for possibility and customization. This film can be as simple and basic as a dark film for tint, or it can be as spectacular as a one-of-a-kind, colorful, decorative film mural. The only limitation is imagination.

If you have an open concept office that could use a little less openness for private meetings, or if you’re just sick and tired of looking at those ugly blinds in the conference room, a national window film tint company can help you choose the perfect solution for your specific office or workspace needs. Maybe your space needs some one way privacy window film, decorative privacy window film, or frosted privacy window film to create a more functional space– the possibilities are endless.

Here are some of the different and unique ways that privacy window film can be utilized in your business setting:

  • Decorative Film with a Privacy Purpose

Privacy film doesn’t have to be boring and monotonous. The possible patterns, designs, and effects vary from the classic frosted window to a fully customized image that flows fluidly from the walls to the windows, combining privacy with class and style.

One of the most popular types of decorative film is 3M Fasara, which features innovative designs created by leading designers from around the world, helping you tailor the look and feel of your offices to your exact needs and wishes.

  • Branding Opportunities

Everyone knows the importance of effective branding. The problem is that most businesses don’t recognize all the branding opportunities and possibilities available to them. Privacy window film can be customized for your business to create innovative interior and exterior branding options, while still providing the privacy and atmosphere you desire.

Graphic branding films from 3M range from easy-peel promotional window graphics to long-term, warrantied brand graphics that transform your windows into effective messaging that lasts for years.

  • High-Tech Solutions

The new, cutting-edge, and incredibly useful options for business privacy might be the perfect solution you never knew existed. Though they’re not quite privacy films, today’s latest high-tech offerings can double as privacy films while serving other purposes as well.

Change your windows from clear to opaque at the touch of a button with smart glass, transform your ordinary window space into video projection screens, or make highly effective use of your space by installing erasable, reusable 3M Fasara whiteboard surfaces anywhere in your office, including on glass walls.

Your options and opportunities for privacy window film are much broader than you’ve imagined. We’ve listed just some of the possibilities your business can choose from, but there are many, many more. To ensure you get the best selection of window film or smart glass options, make sure you choose glass film professionals who can provide the proper level of expertise and service you need for your project.

5 Unexpected Recurring Benefits of Window Film

By decorative films, safety & security Films, Solar control Films, Solutions No Comments

We all know that window film reduces heat and glare, and also saves significantly on HVAC costs, but what most people don’t realize is that window film provides a wide range of benefits to businesses and their buildings.

In no particular order, here are just five of the benefits that we came up with.

  1. Lowered Inventory Replacement Costs

You’ve seen those companies that have unsightly, cracked, faded, and worn-out merchandise on display. And you don’t want to be one of them. That’s why you rotate your stock, cover your display windows, and replace inventory. Often.

Inventory replacement costs add up, especially for your stores in sunshiny states like Arizona and California, so you’ll be relieved to hear that solar window film blocks nearly 100% of UV rays from getting inside your store and harming your merchandise.

  1. Improved Health

We’ve all heard the advice from the Skin Cancer Foundation: wear sunscreen even on cloudy days, and reapply your sunscreen every few hours. But no one thinks to wear sunscreen indoors near a window, which is why the Skin Cancer Foundation also recommends using solar window film for your building.

Window film doesn’t have to be tinted to protect your—and your employees’—health. In fact, crystal clear films keep your building looking attractive and provide necessary UV protection to keep everyone safe.

  1. Increased Employee Productivity

This time of year can be very difficult for employees because the shorter days mean that they come to work in the dark, and they leave in the dark too. Studies prove that employees work better with natural light than with artificial light (and artificial light costs a lot too), so maximizing the little sunlight we have at this time of year is a good idea.

With Daylight Redirection Film, a high-tech type of window film manufactured with micro-planes like tiny prisms inside it, light will be redirected away from the floor and towards the ceiling. This extends light further into the room to keep natural light on your employees for more of their day.

  1. More Attention on Your Building

There’s nothing that says “out of date” like bronzed window film, and there’s nothing that says “low cost” like a facade filled with thousands of unsightly and crooked venetian blinds. Studies show that people really dislike ugly, boring structures, so updating your building with window film is sure to get you more positive attention.

In addition to the typical mirrored films building managers often use to modernize their windows, there are also video projection films, smart glass installations that change from frosted to clear at the tap of your smartphone screen, and anti-graffiti films that make it easy to keep all your glass beautiful at all times.

  1. Better Warmth

People often think of window films as a heat-reduction measure, but they don’t often realize that effective film can keep cold air out too!

Like a cozy, clear sweater for your windows, Low Emissivity films (called “Low E” for short) insulate your windows year round, keeping your building occupants comfortable and reducing wear and tear on your heating and cooling systems. These next generation Low E films can stop up to as much as 42% heat loss associated with the glazing.

What Does Your Building Need?

Remember, this is only a short list out of the many cost-saving improvements that window film brings to your building. Your company will probably experience even more benefits than this.

With installation from NGS Films and Graphics that works around your schedule, there’s no reason you should deny yourself the pleasure that window film can bring to your organization. This year, it’s time to give yourself the gift that keeps on giving for years to come: window film.

Belbien desk retrofit

DINOC & Belbien: The “eco” Architectural Solution

By Architect or Engineer, Commercial Property Owner, Customers, decorative films, Education, ESCO, General contractor, Government, HealthCare, Hospitality, Marketing Agency, News, Property or Facilities Maintenance, Solutions No Comments

DINOC & Belbien: The “eco” Architectural Solution

It’s tempting to tear down and start over, but budget and operations considerations can put a damper on demo. With LEED considerations thrown in the mix, improving the appearance of spaces large and small demand a better alternative. Enter DINOC and Belbien architectural laminate—an excellent “eco” alternative.

Architectural laminates are a textured, hefty 8 millimeters thick vinyl and come in more than 400 style variations from wood grain, fabric, and metallic to stucco, stone, and others. Thanks to their high-tech adhesion and flexibility, transforming any smooth surface is possible, even areas with complex curves.

NGS has been using this dynamic, indoor/outdoor material for several years now with great success. One of our largest projects involved refreshing ten thousand square feet within the Dallas Convention Center.

Washington DC jeweler, IGorman, also needed a fresh take on its aging facade. The company selected a wood grain that matched the original. The end results? Both the finish and the final cost were a sight to behold. Said NGS Managing Partner, James Beale, “The store was completely overhauled with a stunning new & modern look for a fraction of the cost of replacing the original facade substrate.”

Office space design trends that keep worker bees buzzing

Office space design trends that keep worker bees buzzing

The right office environment matters more than ever as Millennials stream into the workforce.  Great spaces attract the best employees and keep them happy and productive.

Window films & NGS printed graphics are a cost-effective tool in providing the warm fuzzies today’s employees need to bring cold, hard cash to the bottom line.  See how window films can keep you current with these five trends.

  1. Open up

Open spaces, at work and at home, have been a trend for so long that they have really become the standard. Let in as much natural light as possible into your open spaces and consider removing any walls that block it. You can “control” the light by choosing different window films that let in more or less light depending on what you need where.

  1. Make yourself at home

Offices are starting to feel more like you’re in someone’s house. The drab rows of desks and columns of metal filing cabinets are slowly fading from view. To make your space feel more like a house, add family-style furniture like long farm tables with benches.  Keep the flow flexible, so tables and chairs can be moved around as needed.

  1. Get in touch with your feelings

(The tactile kind.) Adding texture adds warmth, dimension and personality, especially in open spaces with a homey atmosphere. Get ideas for mixing and matching textures from interior design blogs and magazines. Take a stroll over to the NGS gallery to see the hundreds of different projects utilizing custom and off the shelf decorative & printed films.

  1. Turn it inside out… and outside in

The outside is coming into the office through open spaces and natural light. But the trend doesn’t stop there. Natural stones and woods are appearing on floors, counter tops and walls. Subtle floral patterns are growing in upholstery and wallpaper. If flowers aren’t your thing, don’t worry. Modern approaches suggest woodsy surroundings without overpowering the flower-phobic. Products like 3M’s DINOC and Belbien can be installed on most any smooth surface to emulate the look of stone or, metal or wood.

  1. Don’t keep up with the Jones’s

Keeping up with office space design trends keeps you looking fresh and welcoming to both your employees and your important visitors. But don’t forget that your space should always reflect your brand, even as tastes change. With today’s specialty graphics, brand identify elements printed on film can be incorporated liberally—and tastefully—into a less “corporate” environment.

Aaron’s Rents Makes a Bold Move—and NGS Goes with Them

By Architect or Engineer, Commercial Property Owner, Customers, decorative films, General contractor, Installation Services & Programs, Marketing Agency, News, Property or Facilities Maintenance, Solutions No Comments

Aaron’s Rents Makes a Bold Move—and NGS Goes with Them

Aaron’s Rents is one of the largest rent-to-own retailers in the country, with more than 2,000 stores in 47 U.S. states and Canada. The furniture, electronics and appliances giant recently made the forward-looking decision to move from its headquarters of 55 years in the Atlanta Buckhead neighborhood to new headquarters in the Cobb Galleria.

Although the move is a pioneering one, Aaron’s won’t be alone. Many other companies based in Atlanta have considered re-locating from in-town neighborhoods to the Cobb Galleria due to sky-rocketing rents and worsening traffic. The Home Depot has already made the transition. These companies look to a better quality of life for employees with the development of the Braves SunTrust Park in Cobb county, which will be part of a new walkable, work-live-play community.

National Glazing Solutions was selected to provide the interiors package for Aaron’s Rents upgraded headquarters based on its strong track record of delivering outstanding solutions and services for new-fashioned HQ projects, including State Farm Insurance Co.

NGS project scopes at the new Aaron’s Rents headquarters include digitally printed wallcoverings, custom printed window films, dimensional signage, wayfinding graphics and Belbien wood-grain vinyl.

Wood-grain looks, in particular, have surged in popularity in 2016. According to managing partner and vice president of sales for NGS, “What’s old is new again. Wood-grain vinyl adds warmth and contrast to a modern office environment in a cost-effective, practical application that is both durable and easy to maintain.”

State Farm Park Center

NGS Gives New State Farm Mega Campus Major Atmosphere

By Architect or Engineer, Commercial Property Owner, Customers, decorative films, General contractor, Government, HealthCare, Hospitality, Installation Services & Programs, Marketing Agency, News, Property or Facilities Maintenance No Comments

NGS Gives New State Farm Mega Campus Major Atmosphere

In a prime example of “go big or go home,” State Farm Insurance Co. is building the largest corporate office project in Atlanta’s history, located on 17 acres in the Perimeter area of Dunwoody. Currently planned for completion by the end of the year, the Park Center campus will span an impressive 2.2 million square feet, including a 26-story tower connected to the Dunwoody MARTA station. The campus will be home to up to 10,000 employees.

National Glazing Solutions was selected by State Farm’s architect & general contractor to handle the interior graphics and film for this massive undertaking. Recognized as the leader in the commercial window film industry, NGS has the chops to bring an innovative vision for large scale interior graphics to life.

According to James Beale, managing partner and vice president of sales for NGS, “Large-scale interior graphics have been a huge trend in 2016. It gives companies like State Farm the most robust opportunity to truly customize their space as an environmental reflection of their brand.”

NGS project scopes at the State Farm Park Center include digitally printed wall coverings, 3M Fasara dusted crystal window film, custom printed window films, dimensional signage and wayfinding graphics. The 3M dusted crystal window film is a decorative glass film that allows for custom levels of privacy and transforms the look of clear glass while letting in light and maintaining an open feel. Dimensional signage and wayfinding graphics that are intuitive and effective are particularly important for a seamless experience throughout an office of this scale.
