How Opaque Films & Graphics Can Be Used to Update Building Exteriors

In Custom Graphics by ST Graphics

The facades of most commercial buildings have a lot of surface area that goes completely unused. In other words, there’s a lot of potential real estate just going to waste. Updating building exteriors using opaque films and graphics can turn that space into something more useful. They’re an effective way of enhancing privacy for buildings with lots of windows, and opaque graphic films can also be used for advertising or design purposes. You can utilize opaque films and graphics for attracting attention to increase business sales or simply drumming up conversation. 

Here are a few of the ways that opaque films and graphics can be used to update building exteriors: 

  • Enhance Privacy 
  • Display Custom Branding
  • Transform the Exterior 
  • Spark Conversation

Enhance Privacy

For buildings with a lot of windows, opaque graphic films offer more privacy than transparent glass. These films offer great hiding power, so onlookers or passersby won’t be able to see into your space.

Display Custom Branding

Opaque graphic films can be fully customized to display your company’s logo, slogan, or product images. You can also use them for showing important details like hours of operation or contact information. Other potential uses include advertising product images or other promotional campaigns. Take the precious real estate on the exterior of your building that’s not in use and make it work for you. Custom graphics can generate more brand awareness and attract new business.

Transform the Exterior 

If the building is outdated, using opaque films and graphics can transform the exterior for a more modern look. They come in almost every color imaginable, so the opportunities are endless. Using custom graphics or a combination of different colors can bring more life and dimension into a once unused space. It’s also less disruptive to business operations than undertaking a full-on renovation.

Spark Conversation  

Updating a building exterior with opaque graphic films can also be a conversation starter. Custom designs or unique artwork can really make a statement, creating intrigue and excitement. Whether you’re looking to attract new business or just add some character, opaque graphics can have a big impact. 

Tap into the Benefits of Using Opaque Films 

There are many benefits to using opaque graphic films to upgrade building exteriors, including their versatility and wide range of colors. Outdated exteriors can sometimes cost a lot of money to renovate and cause long periods of downtime. Fortunately, using opaque films and graphics can drastically reduce the time it takes to liven up your building’s facade.

Not to mention, they provide plenty of opportunities to increase brand awareness through customization.
