European Warehouse Expansion

This July our UK logistics team popped over the English Channel to visit Contra Vision’s new warehouse in Edam, Netherlands.  The warehouse is ideally located to allowContra Vision to serve its Continental European customers better with improved delivery times and to avoid any Brexit-related disruption

The first orders were processed through Edam on 15th July and Sarah and Vik were both there to ensure everything went smoothly.


“We wanted to see first-hand how our stock was being managed and be there to identify any early processing issues” said Sarah. Continue reading “European Warehouse Expansion”

Contra Vision returns to GlobalShop

It has been a few years since Contra Vision last exhibited at Globalshop so the team was excited to have a booth at this year’s show in Chicago.  As always, we were amazed at the size of the floorspace and the breadth of what was being promoted, everything from the latest solutions for cashless payments and RFID to shop mannequins and artificial vegetation for “mood manipulation” inside stores.


Our main focus was promoting Performance HD White on Black for advertising and branding on retail windows, targeting retailers, brands and marketing/design agencies who were in attendance. We were very proud of our stand design which was made to look like a storefront with Contra Vision wraps on 4 windows. Continue reading “Contra Vision returns to GlobalShop”


The Milwaukee Bucks went to the NBA play offs and the city celebrated in style!

In April 2019 The Milwaukee Bucks made it to the NBA playoffs and the city pulled out all the stops to celebrate. Turning the Milwaukee River bright green let anyone visiting the city know that something big was going on.  A Contra Vision installation across one of the bridges encouraged sports fans to #FearTheDeer.


A landmark sized installation on one of the major bridges across a bright green river is a great idea, unless of course the graphics restrict the view for those using the bridge or make the crossing a claustrophobic experience.

This is where Contra Vision offered the ideal solution.

By using Performance Clear in a 30% transparency, Mandel Graphic Solutions were able to easily and more importantly safely apply the graphics on the inside face of the glass. Continue reading “FEAR THE DEER”

A window of opportunity…

Eastern Connecticut State University is proud of their “Warriors” Sports Teams and wanted to take advantage of their undecorated windows near the centrepiece of the College Campus to promote and support the College brand.

Working with Merritt Big Color, A National Sign Co. of East Hartford, CT, Eastern Connecticut State University was looking for a means to promote their College brand on the blank canvas of their windows in the central area of the Campus.  Not only was this to inspire their students but, due to the fact that the glass was located facing south west, the College was hoping to reduce the intense glare inside the lobby space.

There’s a very popular leisure centre on the Bradley Stoke housing development. The leisure centre is a family -oriented place with all sorts of really popular attractions including a swimming pool.

The pool features a very large glazed end elevation with views outward for swimmers and staff to an area dense woodland and to one of the estate’s main roads. From the outside, anyone could see straight into the swimming pool area whether they’re driving or strolling past, or walking in the woods. The swimmers didn’t like that.

Up to 1BN birds are unnecessarily dying every year…

Scientists estimate that skyscrapers are killing up to 1bn birds a year in US and conservationists are advocating that architects and designers adopt more ‘bird-friendly’ designs into their buildings to help to reduce this figure. This includes incorporating specialist patterned glass into the buildings, such as that developed by Contra Vision, the global pioneers and experts in one-way vision solutions.

How small can you go?

Our Performance HD White on Black film is proving to be a huge hit for customers who demand the finest detail, coupled with a super smooth see-through from the other side.

With recent installations on both sides of the Atlantic, Performance HD is proving that when it comes to superior quality, Contra Vision is head and shoulders above the competition.

In Liverpool, UK, Tate Gallery chose to use HD on its perimeter windows to promote recent exhibitions. As one of the most respected galleries in the world, image quality is of paramount importance and HD was definitely up to the job. Continue reading “How small can you go?”
