Create your window patterns step by step
The Inkmill Vinyl Website puts you in the driving seat when it comes to great designs. Here’s a simple guide to how to create a custom window pattern for your office in just minutes
1. Navigate to Window & Wall Patterns
2. Choose your design from our wide range of ready made window patterns.
If you need some inspiration take a look at our Pinterest channel. We’ve collected hundreds of ideas from images of commercial window film patterns from offices around the world to inspire you. Once you have chosen your pattern it will open up in our custom pattern tool. Here you can customise your pattern and preview the result as you create your changes in size and scale, colour and finish.
3. Choose your pattern size and scale
Firstly start by entering the dimensions of the window space that you want to cover. Following this choose the type of vinyl that you would like to use. Frosted vinyls are very popular for office windows. Our frosted vinyls are available in a range of opacities. Translucent will add a burst of colour. You can buy samples of our vinyl to test on your window before you make your order. We also have a range of speciality vinyls including double sided polished gold and silver for use on windows.
Explore the buttons on our custom pattern tool to create your perfect pattern.
Scale – All of our patterns are scalable so you can choose to have the detail of the pattern as large or as small as you like. The default scale is 100% clicking on the + button next to the pattern scale will instantly enlarge the pattern and you’ll see your design change in the preview window. Use the + and – buttons to create your pattern to the perfect scale for your design.
Flip – Clicking on the flip button horizontally flips your pattern. Where the vinyl is to be applied to the inside of the window and there is logo or text which will be read from the other side of the glass it is important that you ‘flip’ your design. This ensures that the text is cut to be read the right way around.
Invert – Looking in the preview window the black part of the pattern represents the vinyl and the white represents the negative space which will be cut away. Press the invert button to swap these around. This makes very detailed patterns less dense allowing more light through. Try it out by clicking the invert button on this complex islamic tile pattern to see how the pattern changes. Additionally, having more black pattern in your preview creates a denser pattern which gives a greater level of opacity if you are using the pattern for screening or privacy.
Zoom – These buttons only apply to the preview and won’t actually change your design. They help you to zoom into the pattern and see the changes you’ve made in more detail.
Next we’ll ask you to choose the surface which you applying the vinyl too. Choose glass/mirror – this is so we can send you the correct application guide with your order detailing the best way to apply vinyl to glass surfaces. At this point you’ll see a little reminder pop up about flipping the design if you need to. For large spaces and multiple orders we also offer an installation service. Please email us at email@example.com if you would like to find out more about this.
Choosing your designs
When choosing a window film pattern there’s endless options available. We have a wide range of designs to choose from. Frosted window films replicate acid-etched and sandblasted glass but are however much more cost effective and quicker to install. Their subtle opaque finish creates a beautiful contrast effect. Colour is big news in commercial interiors right now and helps to bring a boring bland workspace up to date. Use coloured translucent films to work with corporate branding by matching existing corporate colour palettes. We can also create bespoke patterns from your own designs. For example, integrate your logo into the pattern or create room names and numbers for wayfinding. Simply upload them to our website.
