“Window Perf”. Window perf vinyl is perforated with very small holes that allow you to see out. It also gives you the benefit of acting as a tinting to reduce heat in your interior and to prohibit people seeing into the car.

From inside the vehicle, visibility is similar to regular window tint. From the outside, the graphic is visible. We can use an optically clear over-laminate on window perf.
