Contra Vision North America, Inc. is a company which prides itself on extending the market for see-through graphics by providing creative solutions designed to improve print performance.
Contra Vision® products transform glass into opportunities for advertising, branding, one-way privacy, solar shading and decorative architectural features, while retaining excellent see-through from the other side. Our invention has made the Contra Vision® brand a byword for one-way vision window graphics and the company’s continual innovation has been recognized by a Product of the Year 2016 Award at SGIA Expo 2106.
A new product, Contra Vision® Campaign™ perforated window film with Grayliner™ has been awarded Product of the Year at this year’s SGIA exhibition in Las Vegas, in the category, Media- adhesive backed vinyl.
This extension to our range is a new product which combines the benefits of Contra Vision® Campaign™, an economically priced perforated window film, specifically for the production of short term see-through graphics, with the benefits of Grayliner™ technology.
Contra Vision® Grayliner™ is a patented improvement to perforated window films, making it easier than ever to produce outstanding see-through graphics. The liner color matches the 70% monochromatic gray tone which is typically visible through the perforations on a window. It is the perfect background to view trial prints and to help print operators with color matching and quality assurance during production.
The graphics on a conventional white or clear liner can appear “washed out” and may not be accepted by the customer. This creates the temptation to use excessive amounts of ink which can damage the performance of perforated window films. In other cases the printed image can appear artificially strong if the liner absorbs ink within the perforations, leading to unrealistic expectations and disappointment when the film is installed.
Contra Vision® Campaign™ with Grayliner™ is suitable for printing with solvent, eco-solvent, latex and UV inkjet printers, and for screen-printing and other common printing technologies.
The development of Contra Vision® Grayliner™ is just one of the many product innovations developed by the company over the years, with continual innovation and expert consultancy providing the basis of Contra Vision’s worldwide success. SGIA chose this product as best Media-adhesive backed vinyl; the competition judged submissions across 19 categories for output devices and 29 categories for non-output devices.
Roger Hill, CEO of Contra Vision North America, Inc. comments, “There was strong competition for this award, and we were delighted that our innovation was judged to be a worthy winner. Quite an accomplishment, which rewards our focus on continuous innovation.’
Contra Vision North America, Inc. was founded in Atlanta, Georgia over twenty years ago to serve the North American market and the company regularly exhibits at SGIA.
