Outdoor Business Signs and Etched Glass

Frosted glass, or “etched glass” is a really popular graphic that can be seen outside businesses. Law firms, real estate companies, architecture firms, advertising agencies and other corporations like the professional, classy way to promote their logo and/or business name. This outdoor business signage doesn’t block out the light like some window decals, but instead scatters the rays. Etched or frosted glass allows for privacy without being too closed off.

Frosted glass can be produced a few different ways. You can sandblast or acid etch clear sheet glass. As you can guess, this method requires a lot of labor and some fancy tools. We prefer to print a vinyl film and adhere it to windows or doors. As you can see from the pictures below, it looks like real etched glass!

Frosted Glass for Village Real Estate (Outdoor Business Sign)

Village Real Estate loves frosted glass, so we have a lot of pictures of their various doors and windows. They have a variety of etched glass: some on doors, some on windows, some on the outside, some on the inside, some are small decorations and some cover the whole window. How you use frosted glass is a matter of style and preference. It also depends on the amount of privacy you want to maintain. For entry doors, some people prefer to cover the whole door in film.

Frosted Glass for McAlpine (Outdoor Business Sign)

Another client that requested etched glass was McAlpine, a residential architecture and interior design partnership. Instead of covering their whole window in etched glass, they just wanted a horizontal strip across the window. It looks really pretty and clean next to the green shrubbery.
