  • Notes from the Graphic Artist

    Hello there, to customers new and old, and those who have yet to discover what  wonderful products Windrestrictor® provides. My name is Erica Kersey-Doherty, and I'm the Graphic Artist here at Windrestrictor®.

    My role is to personally handle and assist individuals with their custom orders. I work with people from almost every walk of life, of all ages and interests, and from almost every country in the world. So many different people from so many different backgrounds, all with the same love for their cars. I also have the good fortune to help gift givers create something meaningful, beautiful and long-lasting to share with their loved ones and friends. 14610945_10154624195957731_8563712554375357408_n

    I have had the pleasure of working with some incredible people who time and time again blow me away with their passion for their vehicles, and for life. From those who take great pride in their car, to those who want to represent their business, a personal interest or even create a tribute to honor a memory, it leaves me proud to say I was lucky enough help them find that special design that captures that passion in its entirety.

    While we do provide custom options for your Windrestrictor®, carefully crafted with one-of-a-kind custom graphics, we also offer a range of bold and beautiful standard options should you need a little help deciding what you'd like. However, for those looking for that perfect  personalized accessory to accent and compliment their vehicle, our custom etching process is second to none in the industry.

    Being presented with this world of choice can be daunting to begin with, after all, with our continual improvement and refining of our process, we are able to bring more and more dreams to life by constantly expanding the scope of what's possible.  Luckily, you are not alone.

    Even before you place an order there is someone waiting on the phone or over email to answer any questions you might have. Once you decide what you would like, our team of innovative production agents and are willing to work with different modification and solutions to help our product work exactly right for you. I myself eagerly await hearing each and every customer's vision for their product, and enjoy working with them to bring it to life. Even after the order has been shipped out we have a support team 100% dedicated to help with any installation and technical questions. Thanks to our team who not only take great pride in our range of products, but are also extremely invested in the happiness and satisfaction of the customers who purchase them, you are never on your own with Windrestrictor®.

    Many people have questions, especially about our our custom process and how it all works. The most common question I get is "What do I need to do for you so we can get started?" And the answer is simple.

    Just tell me what you'd like.

    You don't need to be an artist, you don't need to send me sketches or detailed outlines (though both of those are welcome) I just need to know what you want, any specific ideas or elements you would like to include, and I can do the rest.

    Now, what if you can't answer that question? No problem! I can help with that too. I have worked with people who have all kinds of  ideas but aren't quite sure where to go with them. It remains important and interesting to me to work through the process of narrowing things down with these customers. Helping people to create a way of truly expressing themselves whilst building this into a design that is attractive and cohesive, is one of the most rewarding parts of my work at Windrestrictor®.



    For those with a very specific design in mind, there are few things about our engraving process that you need to know so that you can help us to help you to create your best product possible.

    For the best quality etching, high definition or high resolution images are preferred, if you chose to provide them. Samples are welcome but not required, and honest feedback will help everything move smoothly. My goal is always to create a design you love and will be proud of for years to come, to do this, I need to know how you really feel, and if there is anything about the design I can alter to bring it closer to your vision. We like to communicate via email for the duration of the design process, but if computers aren't really your thing, phone calls and text messaging are also options, though we do like these to be supported by some form of written word so we have our plan in black and white. This leaves little room for error and allows us to get your Windrestrictor® to you faster!


    I hope this post has been informative and helpful in shedding some light on what we do here at Windrestrictor®, and in demystifying our custom process. As I continue to work with our existing customers to bring their ideas and expressions to life, I look forward to meeting our new ones and showing them first hand what it means to be a part of the Windrestrictor® family.

  • Coupe? We've got you covered! WindRestrictor® Glowplates for your hardtop


    As many of you know, WindRestrictor® is a company that's primarily made a living off of fine convertibles. Nobody does convertibles quite like us, we're recognized globally as a company that looks good and performs well. A reputation we've earned with the help of our extended family globally that's supported our product loyally.

    One of our most frequent requests is a product for Coupes. Why should convertibles have all the fun? Sure, we already make such a product for Cadillac XLRs, Mustangs, Camaros, Chrysler Crossfire, Minicoopers, Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Sky, Jaguar F-Type, Mazda Miata and Corvettes. However, there's so many people into customization in the 2010s, we thought it would be unfair to hold on to such great technology for only a select few.

    Whether you're in a Ford F-Series (Ford F-150, Ford F-250) truck or a Honda Civic, we're pleased to say we have something for everyone now! Our friends can now light their Glowplate up whether it's July or January. Let's get into what our new product is and isn't and how you can pick one up!


    Baby, This Ain't No Cute Suction Sign


    So, maybe I'm dating myself but I for one remember those little suction cup signs that adorned many vehicles back in the day. Baby on board, twins on board, princess on board, road rage on board etc. Sure, they were popular and plentiful. But, these weren't really designed to modify your vehicle. Vehicle modification is best when it's flashy yet classy. Two things these little yellow squares lacked.

    Now this isn't to put down the casual bumpers sticker moms, dads and grandparents. For some it's more than enough to place a nice plastic sign. It isn't enough though for the hardcore enthusiast.

    If you cherish true personalization, look no further than our products. You have all the custom options that you can conceive with the WindRestrictor® and now our Glowplate. Our laser etched graphics are far superior to what you'll find in most automotive accessories. We give you the option to make a lit, luminescent piece of art that's easily viewable from your back window.


    Stickers Aren't Foreverfkpeeoag6mpmiz4-medium

    While some stickers are admittedly an easy and cheap option to decorate your vehicle, the problem is with their permanence. They're not likely to last as long as you plan on owning your car/truck. If you live in an area with hot summers, this is the case more often than not. The hot sun can melt away your adhesive in short order. Being a southerner I know this first hand. All the visions of faded bumper stickers and window decals more than prove my point.

    The amount of detail seen in decals is somewhat limited. Even in the computer age, you'd be hard pressed to find an art medium with more pin point accuracy than our laser etching. Not to mention your ability to see through our designs. Which by the way gives you all the freedom afforded by your imagination to create or recreate any graphics.

    Now there's wraps, and they're amazing. It's helped enhance the appeal of so many different vehicles. If you're talking about windows though, it's not even a contest. Less view obstruction, no adhesive issues, and the ability to shine in the night.

    Illumination Nation


    Now I know a few of you are still wondering what makes us so special. The stickers and paint jobs are now more than enough to decorate your right, ride? Well, unless I missed something, they can't light up the night like we can! Above are some pictures about what our art looks like with our light bar attached. The same feature you'll now receive in our Universal Glowplate option.

    One of 8 brilliant luminescent colors are yours to choose from. Can't pick one? No problem! You can use one of our Electric Light Kits and cycle through all of them. As if lit and etched wasn't enough, you can cycle through hues effortlessly with this option.

    How about a third brake light? How about advertisement for your business that people can see better than that magnet on your car door? How about a lit piece that glows with your ride's theme? Glowplates will do all of this and more.

    Altogether Now



    Like I said before, people are always asking us about their car. Now if there's any question you want a reply too, it's that one. To know our product is sought after is the ultimate compliment. There's so many people who mod now. From the tuner crew ( Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, Subaru Impreza STI,  Scion tC etc.), to the big tire truck riders (Dodge Ram, GMC Sierra, Chevrolet Silverado etc) and all the Southern California lowriders (we can make a glowing replica of your club's plaque and stay in place when your hydraulics make it bounce). So, many people express themselves through their vehicles.

    Our company takes great pride in the types of vehicles that are already in service by our group. That doesn't mean though other great rides are undeserving of our unique accessory that can turn any car into a moving light show. We've shipped to 1000s of people in every inhabited continent. Why not try to cover every car owner?

    It was an eventuality that we had a product that the masses could enjoy, we just needed the right design. We're not a company that jumps the gun, putting out a sub-par product and rushing to market would mar our reputation and name. To make sure this Glowplate was up to our standards was our first priority.

    The Wrap-up



    We feel like we're one of the best options available if you want to ,"Pimp my ride".Whether you're showing off the latest innovation at the Tokyo Motor Show, stylin' in your muscle car or hot rod at Woodward Dream Cruise, or just having fun on a Sunday we've go you covered.
