MetWest’s custom gradient films

Your creativity knows no bounds

MetWest can create a bespoke gradient film tailored to your specific design preferences – from simple color gradients to transforming photographs or graphics into full-wall-length privacy films. Our custom gradient glass film is adaptable to fit any size glass surface, unlike standard off-the-shelf roll gradients that have limitations based on roll size such as 60” or 72”. Our process is tailored to the size of your space, meaning we can produce gradual gradients over 100 feet in any direction if that’s what you desire.

Custom Creates A Seamless Finish
Standard films are commonly 60″ or 48″ heights — rarely the size of your glass. Why? Manufacturers often print only to the size most people want privacy for, with opaque white at the bottom and clear film at the top. That means installs leave unsightly seams where the material ends and the glass continues.

Custom films can be printed at any height — covering the full height of glass and  creating a custom panel of glass. The smooth finish resulting from applying film to the entire piece of glass is a major reason many clients choose custom gradients. Even if the printed area is only a standard 48” white gradient.

Brand With Your Favorite Pattern

Whether you want to incorporate branding, or simply create a more interesting look – custom patterns are a great option. From modern styles such as a dot or square gradients to natural looks like beach grass gradients, the possibilities are endless. You can create a gradient out of any symbol – including your logo for a truly personal touch. Our design team can also assist you in creating a custom patterned gradient if you have an idea but no final artwork.

How Much Privacy Do You Need?

With custom gradients, you can choose precisely how opaque your window film is. Go very opaque for complete privacy in secure rooms. Or choose very translucent to add style to your glass but keep visibility. All spaces have unique privacy needs that standard films cannot perfectly accommodate.

Given the off the shelf choices, you might be under the impression gradients need to be white. That’s definitely not the case. With custom, your gradient can be any color. We can even match Pantone and paint colors.

Your custom gradient can fade from your chosen color to clear, or transition between two or more colors.

Vertical, Horizontal, Diagonal, Center Out…

With custom gradients, you can get creative beyond the typical vertical gradient. Go horizontal, diagonal, center out or radial. Choosing an unusual direction for your gradient is a great way to elevate the final design installation to a truly unique aesthetic for your space.

Besides adding style, sometimes a more creative direction is a necessary solution to a functional problem. For example, one past client of ours had a glass wall dividing a lobby and café. The gradient needed to hide an awkwardly placed ventilation pipe at the ceiling. This wasn’t possible with an off-the-shelf product.

Our solution was a custom printed gradient window film, with opaque white starting on the left fading to clear on the right. No more ugly vents.

Custom Cut and Printed Imagery

Enhance your brand’s privacy feature by incorporating compelling images, text, or your unique logo. Transform it from a functional necessity into an aesthetically pleasing element that reflects your brand’s identity. Explore beyond simple shapes and geometric designs, and unleash the potential of photography and intricate artwork to create a truly captivating experience.

Clarity and Communication for Complex Designs

It’s important for everyone to be on the same page for custom projects — especially with complex designs. We use detailed elevations to communicate precisely so you can ensure that the final product will be exactly what you’re looking for.

We also provide 6”W sample strips of the printed gradient approval at the full height of the final installation. Clearly labeled with a ruler and where the print transitions from clear to various opacities to make it easy to provide feedback and get a result that meets your unique privacy and design needs perfectly.

Our Gradients are Completely Customizable

Standard Gradients vs Custom Gradient

Off the shelf gradients are restricted in size and design. These are frequently very limited in size — rarely larger than a 72″ height. Most standard gradients are white and one-directional: opaque at the bottom and clear at the top, or vice versa. Custom gradients are printed for a unique job, and easily customized to fit your needs. Any size, direction, color, pattern or density.

Ombre vs Gradient

Standard industry term for this film type is Gradient, though it differs technically from Ombre. Gradient refers to a change from light to dark within the same color family, while Ombre denotes a gradual blend from one color to another. In the film world, the two terms are often used interchangeably, and whichever you use or reference, MetWest will understand your meaning.
