One of the new materials that Silhouette recently released is Printable Window Cling Material (both clear and white), and I love that this material allows us to create our own, custom window clings for holidays, seasons, and other occasions where you want to add a little bling to the ol’ windows.
I found the Window Cling Material to be easy to work with, and both the printing and cutting went very smoothly. I was a little worried that the ink might not be dry after the page finished printing, but it was completely dry pretty much immediately after printing. I left it for a minute or so before cutting it, though, just in case.
The images that I used are in a pastel color scheme, and they were very light on the clear cling material, but they stood out much better on the white cling material since it’s opaque. So, I recommend going with images that are brighter and/or darker if you’re using the clear cling material. Lots of possibilities with this material, and I’m excited that I can make my own window clings for Halloween, Christmas, or even National Cheeseburger Day if I want to! By the way, National Cheeseburger Day is September 18th this year, just so you know.
In the video below, I’ll walk you through designing print and cut pages for window clings with either PNG files or SVG files in Silhouette Studio, so you’ll be able to make custom window cling designs whether you have the free (PNG) version or one of the premium versions (PNG or SVG) of Silhouette Studio. This tutorial can be applied to any print and cut designs, so if you want to make stickers, cardstock elements for cardmaking or scrapbooking, or decorations and signage for parties you’ll want to watch this, too.
