Why Screen fees? Screen fees are necessary for several reasons. The first reason is the fact that there are expenses in preparing screens. The screens, emulsion, ink, film, tape, and chemicals used for cleaning all add up. Secondly, exposing screens properly is vital to achieving quality prints. Exposing screens is time consuming and very similar to developing film. The screens are prepared in a darkroom and must not see light or the screens may be compromised. Finally, each color in the design requires a separate screen that needs to line up perfectly with all of the other colors in the design to achieve superior prints. This process is also very tedious, but necessary in the screen printing process.
Will my screens be held indefinitely?

Q. What are the benefits of window graphics?
Cost-effectively remodel the appearance of a store location. According to realtors, a critical factor in selling a home is what they call “curb appeal”. That term refers to the initial impression that a prospective buyer has of a home from the street. The same holds true for the retailer. First impressions are lasting impressions. Shoppers immediately form a judgment about a company based on the physical appearance of a store location. If the store doesn’t look inviting on the outside, shoppers will not be enticed inside. Rehabbing the appearance of the store with window graphics is much less costly than traditional construction costs for remodeling.
Create a uniform look. A window graphics program will project a uniform corporate identity from one location to another, even if the stores are architecturally dissimilar.
Q. I'm not sure my landlord allows graphics to cover my windows, or, if my landlord only allows a certain percent of my windows to be covered. I'm not sure if I need a permit or city authorization to install a window graphic. How do I find out what's required?
A. We will be happy to work within the guidelines and stipulations set forth by your landlord. Most cities don't require a permit for window graphics, but every city and county is unique and have different rules. Your landlord or property management company may be able to direct you to this information. An internet search specific to your city is also a good way to find out what is needed. All permitting is the responsibility of the owner of the business who is ordering the graphics and installation.
Q. What do I need to do to prepare for my window vinyl installation?
A. Please thoroughly clean your windows 1-2 days prior to your scheduled install. To save on install costs, we recommend you remove any existing stickers, window coverings, decals or anything applied to the inside or outside of your windows prior to cleaning your windows and your scheduled installation. We can remove existing graphics, and clean the windows, but additional charges will apply.
