Frequently Asked Questions
Tempered glass enhances the strength by about 10x. Unfortunately, it also warps the glass, creating a fun house mirror effect. We recommend tempering the glass for situations where the glass might break, such as a public installation.
Our size tolerance is +/- 1/16″
We are standing by to cut and pack your order immediately.
We have 20 years experience packaging mirrors so that they don’t break. If your order arrives broken, please send us pictures right away and we’ll send you a replacement.
The thinner and brighter, the better. Some top brands we recommend are Samsung, LG, and Vizio. Be sure to buy a flat and not a curved screen.
The dielectric is extremely transparent, so you get the maximum light through it from the television. To minimize glare, it is only just reflective enough to create a mirror effect. The VanityVision is much more transparent, which makes it ideal for a bathroom vanity project.
How fast do you ship?
We start cutting and packaging the mirrors as soon as you place your order. Glass & acrylic mirrors are cut and shipped right away, and tempered glass takes 1 week until shipping. When ordering tempered mirrors, lead time is about one week.
Can you do different shapes?
We can cut glass to various sizes and shapes. We only sell acrylic in rectangles and squares, but is easy to cut or drill using standard tools. Please email us a drawing and we will quote it for you.
Which is better, glass or acrylic?
Glass is easy to clean, scratch resistant, and a flatter mirror. The acrylic, while susceptible to scratching, provides better picture clarity, and is lighter and safer.
Do you offer wholesale discounts?
Please email us with the size and quantity you’re looking for and we will send a price quote and vendor application form.
What size should I order the mirror?
Usually, the mirror is the same size as the exterior measurements of the television or monitor (excluding stand). For example, the Samsung mu6300 series is very popular and here is a list of overall sizes:
40″ un40mu6300 – 36.1″ x 21.1″
43″ un43mu6300 – 38.4″ x 22.4″
50″ un50mu6300 – 44.4″ x 25.8″
55″ un55mu6300 – 48.9″ x 28.3″
60″ un60ku6300 – 53.7″ x 31.1″
65″ un65mu6300 – 57.6″ x 33.2″
70″ un70mu6300 – 61.9″ x 35.8″
Which is better to use, a monitor or TV?
If you’re making a small smart mirror, a tablet is often the best choice. For a large smart mirror, it’s generally better to use a TV, preferably a thin TV. A TV typically has a flat backside and you can turn it on and off with a remote straight through the mirror.
Can the mirror be larger than my display?
Yes, if you’re not using a touch overlay. Simply back paint the backside with black paint everywhere except the TV and IR sensor. We recommend masking off the area with blue painters tape, and using a paint that works well on glass such as Black Rust-Oleum UltraCover 2x, which is available from your local Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowes, or Menards.
Advantages and disadvantages of tempering?
Tempered glass is heat-treated to increase the strength 10x. In addition, if tempered glass should break, it breaks into small shards which are less sharp than regular glass. The main disadvantage of tempered glass is that it causes distortion, similar to a fun-house mirror effect. For that reason, it’s generally not recommended unless going in a public installation.
Difference between sanded, polished, and beveled mirrors?
We sand all the edges to prevent cutting, which is also referred to as “seaming” glass. A polished edge using increasingly fine belts until the edges are smooth. Beveling glass polishes the edge at an angle, creating the following appearance:
Use standard mirror clips or a j-channel to mount a mirror flush to the wall.
You can paint the back (the non-mirror side–unless it’s beveled) with black spray paint such as Rust-Oleam High Heat or Ultra Cover 2x. Be sure to mask off the viewable area using a high quality blue painters tape such as Scotch Delicate Surface Masking Tape. Be sure to take careful measurements before painting to avoid mistakes, and you may consider purchasing a product sample from us for practice before painting the larger mirror.
Alternatively, you can use Gila Black Privacy Window Film, and be sure to also buy their application kit.
Mounting a TV
Assuming the mirror is being framed to connect it to the TV, you’ll want to use an ultra slim TV mount (0.4″ or less) behind it to keep it close to the wall. Alternatively, using an ultra thin tilting mount (0.75″ or less) will allow you to tilt it, connect cables or USB, then push it back against the wall when needed. Don’t forget to use anchors if you’re attaching it to plaster or drywall. A stud finder is recommended for mounting a TV wall mount, so you can drill into studs instead of drywall.
The Inland 05319 Ultra Slim Wall Mount is an excellent value at less than $20.
If the mirror is not being attached to the TV and it’s simply mounted in the wall, you can still use a wall mount within the wall, attached to a 2×4 board screwed into the studs.
Routing a frame to a TV bezel
Take your frame sticks to a wood worker or use a router table to route out the frame to the correct size such as the Bosch RA1181 Benchtop Router Table.
We offer a 60-day return policy for our photobooth mirrors.
