Can You Print onto Window Frosting Film
Simple answer: YES. Using White ink is the the key element for printing onto frosted film. Typically white ink printing cannot be achieved by your average printer. Printing with white ink, allows printing onto transparent medias, such as mirrors, window clings and clear acrylic substrates. Using white ink on dark substrates produces a high contrast look, one that is visually sharp and striking. Printing a layer of white ink behind your design acts like a light block, preventing light from passing through and making the ink appear solid. Printing with white ink is also necessary to do layer printing. Much like white ink acts as a light block on transparent substrates, it can also be used as a way to normalize the surface of any substrate that is not white without losing the vibrancy of the original color. If you wanted to print a colored image or graphic on this film, applying a base layer of white ink before applying colored ink mimics the look of printing on white substrates and keeps the color output from becoming dull, muted, or muddied.
