Denver is a relatively safe city with lower instances of graffiti than other big cities. However, that does not mean local businesses in some areas of Denver do not have to cope with vandalism. One such business is The Wizard’s Chest. Formerly located in the heart of the affluent neighborhood of Cherry Creek, The Wizard’s Chest made the decision to move to a more visible and easily accessible location on Broadway Ave. The following case study details the new challenges they found at their new location and how Denver Commerical Window Tinting was able to help them overcome said challenges.
Situation: In their new location, in the heart of downtown Denver, The Wizard’s Chest found itself plagued with graffiti, specifically scratch marks. Each week, they found more and more unsightly scratched letters and symbols, leaving their store front marred and unsightly. The result of the graffiti was a decline in business, expensive glass replacement and a growing concern they had made the wrong move.
Solution: Denver Commercial Window Tinting suggested The Wizard’s Chest replace the defaced glass and then apply a layer of Llumar Anti-graffiti film as a cost-effective way to curb the damage being done by the vandals. The idea was to apply the film as a sacrificial layer to protect the glass so the next time their windows were scratched they would not need to replace the very expensive panes beneath the film.
Result: The film proved to be a very good idea for The Wizard’s Chest. When the vandals struck again, the film was quickly and cheaply replaced and the glass underneath was untouched. Whoever did the scratching lost interest in marking the storefront because the scratch graffiti never stayed more than a day or two, denying them the long-lasting recognition they wanted from their unsightly marks.

Graffiti is an expensive and unfortunate liability of doing business in an urban setting. Often times a business with great visibility in a highly trafficked area of a city, is forced to be concerned with vandalism. If you own a business in the Denver area and have had a run in with the expenses caused by vandals, it is time to consider anti-graffiti window tinting. Contact Denver Commercial Window Tinting for a free consultation and see how much money a simple window tint will save you in the face of much more expensive glass replacement.
