Need opinions about design of window labels for a house

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to make custom windows that fit this style of building (colonial revival), by slicing up labels and putting them on standard windows...but I can't make them accurately, so I am unsure, if I would be better off just leaving the windows blank (no windows in top row, but you get the idea).

Any advice?

When I'm unsure I always make an effort to test out the concept. If it's not to expectations you can always revert back. Try it out and see. There are stickered windows in plenty of official sets which diversifies the somewhat limited window size/frame options (thus dictating what can be built). I think trying it on all will help you decide and give your build a unique aesthetic.

Depending on how thick you want the stripes to be, there is something called chart tape that ranges in width from 1/16" (about 1.5mm) and upwards.  It comes in several different colors including white, and is removable if you want to do so.  I hope this may help you in finding a solution to your dilemma.

For what it's worth, I rather like the way your windows (and the rest of the house) have turned out thus far.  Nicely done!

That there is and I would definately try and aquire some if there where some that fitted the purpose, but there are 3000+ stickers listed on BL and I'd rather not go through it all. I don't remember a set with a design similar to this. Do share if you know of one.

That could be it. Seems a bit harder to find in white, but now I know where to start thanks. I was thinking of asking a proffesional print shop as well, but this is should be doable. And thanks for the comment as well.

Seems like a perfect application for a desktop cutting machine. Just cut a white label, don't even need to align with printing. I could probably make some for you if you have a specific design, send me a message if you'd like.
