COMPARE THE WORLD'S TOP FILM BRANDS
compare major film brands

We compare the price and durability of the top decorative, frosted and graphics films

Frosted films change the appearance of glass.

  • providing privacy, or hiding an unsightly view.
  • put through a computer cutter to re-create a company logo, or to make directional signs, or 
  • a wide format, full colour, digital printer to enhance the visual impact of graphic displays and signage

These films are chosen for their appearance, or as a substrate for other decoration, and similar types of films are grouped together and ranked by price and durability, as this is the most important consideration for people buying these types of films
