Ken Wingard: Turning Photos Into Window Art

























Materials Needed:

•  Digital image of your favorite photos
•  Clear vinyl self-adhesive decals
•  Ruler, exacto knife/straight edge, pencils
•  Window cleaner spray



Directions:

  1. Find an image that is the right orientation.

  2. Crop it so it’s the same proportions as the window (size the photo to fit your window using a computer program like Photoshop or iphoto – or have your copy or print center help you or do it for you).

    Note: If windows are divided into small panes, measure the individual squares (to come from the one big printout).

  3. Bring it to a print shop and ask them to print on a clear self adhesive vinyl decal for straight adhesion. The film backing adhesive can be permanent, or adjustable (easier to reposition).

    Note: If you want the window to be opaque – so you can’t see through it – print on white vinyl decals).

  4. Clean window well with a window cleaner or vinegar and water.

  5. Peel off backing at one corner, align vinyl properly on window; affix to window.

  6. Continue to peel and stick until entire sticker is in place.

  7. You can remove air bubbles by using a driver’s license or credit card to squeegee.

  8. Pierce any air bubbles with a pin and smooth over.

    NOTE: The decals cost about $10 square foot.

    NOTE: The decals should last about 3 years plus if used outside, and 10 years plus if used inside.
