You know there’s a new exhibit at the Woody Guthrie Center in downtown Tulsa when the exterior window graphics change. These are done in four large prints for each pane of glass to create an image that is 12 feet wide by 15 feet tall.
These also have a side benefit in the summer months by blocking some of the light going into the museum.

These interior window graphics were done with three color cut vinyl – black, turquoise, and simulated Florentine gold vinyl. Throughout the exhibit, turquoise is used to as an accent color for the display signage. This design motif is repeated in the pinstripes that frame in the gold and black lettering. Gold lettering on its own would lack contrast with the clear windows so they are outlined in black vinyl.
There is actual 22 karat to 24 karat gold vinyl available that is often used on fire trucks. However, real gold is rather expensive as you can imagine and the 10-12 year life expectancy would be overkill for this application. To save on costs but still have the same look, we went with a simulated gold vinyl. It is a metallized vinyl film that looks nearly identical to the real thing.

Large windows provide an ideal surface to apply vinyl graphics to advertise your business or, in this case, a current promotion or exhibit. These vinyl graphics for the Woody Guthrie Center in downtown Tulsa promote the newest Kris Kristofferson exhibit currently on display.
The client chose to go with a solid vinyl for this application because they are also currently housing a painting by John Cougar Mellencamp that is on display just inside these windows. The solid vinyl restricts the amount of UV light that enters the building so it reduces the chances of the donated painting fading in direct sunlight. As you can see in the second picture, though, the vinyl does not stop all the light from entering the windows but you can no longer see through the glass. For applications when you want to still be able to see through the window to the outside, perforated window vinyl is the material to use.
