Two way mirror film



  • Has anyone tried to apply two way mirror film directly to a monitor/display screen instead of putting it on glass then putting the monitor/display behind it?
    Asking for a friend…



  • I haven’t yet, I have used the film on glass for my first mirror project. The main problem is you have to use soapy water (spray) to apply the film to make sure you don’t get any bubbles. (Near impossible to apply film without water)

    If you do this directly to a typical monitor screen you might get water over the electronics side of it. You might be able to if you’re extremely careful and take good precautions.

    I’m planning on trying this on my next project as I have a touchscreen monitor.
    The monitor I have is a frame-less one and the glass is a bit thicker on the front than a typical monitor.
    I am confident I can apply the film to this without any issues.

  • So I put the film on my tv monitor and it looks ok but not great. Two things, first the display is so bright you lose a lot of the mirror affect I believe, second I think because the film is not on a piece of glass the wrong side of the film is facing forward. Going to try on a LED monitor and try a piece of Plexiglas.
