Printed self-adhesive film
Self-adhesive film is a perfect advertising medium. It can be positioned quickly and flexibly on virtually all smooth surfaces. A classic in film printing is self-adhesive film for cars and other vehicles. At print24.com, you can have self-adhesive film custom-printed with your design for outdoors or for indoor use in eight different standard formats. Free-form and special formats are also possible. Start your print job online now! Our print runs for self-adhesive film start at just one piece.
Self-adhesive films are more than just stickers. With the high-quality film from print24.com, you can transform vehicles, walls, furniture or other objects with flat surfaces in no time. Our self-adhesive film is also just as suitable for window graphics as it is for outdoor advertising on vehicles. When configuring your print job, please note whether the film needs to be suitable for indoor or outdoor use. All of the three indoor self-adhesive films available meet the strict fire safety standard DIN 4102-1 when bonded to plasterboard, glass or steel and thus belong to building material class B1. This means that our indoor self-adhesive films are all suitable for public buildings.
White or transparent adhesive film in various versions, suitable for indoors or outdoors
Indoor self-adhesive film, white, self-adhesive − tailor-made for trade shows or special sales areas
This 0.1-mm-thick self-adhesive film is great for creating short-term promotional material, making it ideal for use at trade shows or for special displays in shops and shop windows. The robust white film is free from cadmium, self-adhesive on one side and can be used on almost all flat and even curved smooth surfaces. The upper surface of the film is matt and has a slight texture.
Thanks to the solvent-free, dot-pattern acrylic adhesive, each piece of film can be easily repositioned. The glue is also resistant to ageing, so the film will adhere well for a long time. In addition, the white self-adhesive film can be removed from most surfaces without leaving behind any residue. If, for example, any adhesive residue were to be left behind on PVC, this could be quickly and easily removed with methylated spirits. To ensure that the product adheres well to the surface, it should not be contaminated. We recommend avoiding wet application.
Indoor self-adhesive film, semi-transparent − the perfect advertising medium for temporary promotions
Our semi-transparent and cadmium-free indoor self-adhesive film, with a thickness of 100 μm (0.1 mm), is also suitable for temporary advertising campaigns. Its thinness means that the film is virtually like a “second skin” when applied to a surface. This thin self-adhesive film may be applied to flat and slightly curved smooth surfaces. Adhesion to car paint is also possible. An acrylic adhesive is used, applied in a dot pattern. It is age-resistant, permanently adhesive, permanently elastic and ensures perfect adhesion.
Indoor self-adhesive film, clear, static cling − ideal interior decoration for all smooth surfaces
This special indoor self-adhesive film is transparent, has a matte finish and is made of polyester. It is 140 µm thick. The special feature of this film is its “micro-suction cup technology”. This allows the self-adhesive film to be repositioned even more flexible and to be removed without leaving behind any residue. When used on glass, this clear self-adhesive film is ideal for window displays or attaching to indoor glass facades.
When applying the film, you should wear cotton gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints. In addition, cleaning the supporting surface of grease, dirt and dust particles is recommended. To avoid the formation of bubbles when applying the film, a wet application should be carried out. Here, the supporting surface is moistened with water. Afterwards, the moisture is removed by smoothing down or “squeegeeing” the film, as it is also known.
Note: You would like to attach your foils behind glass from the inside, so that your motifs and text are visible and readable from the outside? Then don't forget to "mirror" your data when creating them. From the outside the letters are then readable from the correct side! Ideal for decorating the inside of a car window or as an individual shop window decoration!
Outdoor self-adhesive film for car graphics
This robust outdoor film has a thickness of only 80 μm. It is a white polymer PVC film that is characterised by its durability and weather resistance. On vehicles, it can, according to the manufacturer, be used for at least six months. This self-adhesive film for outdoor use is adhesive on one side and cadmium free. The acrylic adhesive is permanently elastic and permanent adhesive. So that brightly coloured supporting surfaces do not show through, the adhesive has a grey colour. On request, we can laminate this self-adhesive film. The protective laminate is available in gloss or matt.
It is important that the film is not used on freshly painted surfaces. Indoor use is, of course, no problem.
Eight standard formats, free-form and special formats also available
We print your self-adhesive film in eight standard sizes, starting at 200 x 200 mm, including B4 and B1 and going up to a maximum size of 1,000 x 4,000 mm. At print24.com, you can also have free-form and special format films printed. So you can choose from customised shapes and dimensions for your car windscreen or house window graphics.
Please note that your free-form format must fall within the size range of 200 x 200 mm to 1,000 x 4,000 mm. After their free input into the configuration menu, your special measurements will be directly adopted.
The factors to consider for self-adhesive film printing
When creating the print file, please note that text and images should be at least 1.5 mm away from the edge. Also, please add a 3-mm bleed on every side that is going to be trimmed. If you would like a free-form or a special format for your self-adhesive film, please create a vector path in your print file. This should show the cutting line as a spot colour. Name the spot colour “Cutting Line” and set it to “Overprint”.
Please bear in mind that, when creating the print file, white areas will remain transparent when printing on transparent or clear film.
This is how we print your self-adhesive film
For the digital printing of your self-adhesive film, we use the tried-and-tested 4/0 CMYK four-colour process. In this way, both graphics and texts can be perfectly reproduced in all possible colours. In order to make sure that the colour adheres to the film, it is applied using UV printing. With large formats like B1, please ensure that photos and graphics have a sufficiently high resolution. If the resolution is too low, the reproduction could appear pixelated.
We are happy to assist you in selecting suitable designs and with your print files. Just give us a call or get in touch by email. Our service team will answer your questions competently and reliably.
