Screen Protectors Overview

Photodon Sells Five Types of Screen Protectors:
Anti-glare, Clear, Blue Light Cut, Privacy, and Shock-absorbing.

Screen surface damage is irreversible. Protect your digital investment, your health, and your privacy: Photodon films protect screens from scratches, dirt, and abrasion. Many of our films provide excellent anti-glare function while our blue light-cut film helps to protect eye-health. If screen privacy is what you seek, our privacy filters are the way to go. Our shock-absorbing film offers 6H scratch resistance and extreme-grade protection for any screen up to 80 inches. Custom cutting is our specialty.

Comparison of Anti-Glare / Matte and Crystal Clear Screen Protectors


Touch Screen Capability: Most touch screen devices including those with a stylus input work very well with our screen protective films. However; please note: "Intellitouch" and "Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW)" devices typically DO NOT WORK with silicone-backed screen protectors. Please consider our monitor hoods for anti-glare solutions for these devices.


Color Critical Work: For best screen clarity and color critical work, choose a clear or low anti-glare screen protector. See the chart below for specifics.


Sample Pack: If you are unsure about which type of film will best suit your needs, we suggest that you buy a sample pack. This is a great way to test drive our films before purchasing. We offer free shipping in the U.S.A. and a $5.00 coupon towards your purchase for purchased sample packs.


Adhesion: All of our screen protectors, except for the non-adhesive privacy filter, are adhered with silicone adhesion backing, which will not damage your device’s surface or leave any residue in any way and makes removal possible.


Business to Business: We offer bulk pricing discounts on most of the protectors in our inventory. Consider our B2B Discount Program, if you are seeking a longer term relationship with our company. Email, call or fill out our quote form for more information.


Help: Choosing the correct size film, or screen protector type can be overwhelming for some. We love to help, so give us a call or chat during our business hours and one of our friendly customer service representatives can help guide you.


Anti-Glare

MXH Icon MXF Icon MXT Icon MXG Icon

We offer several different Anti-glare screen protectors ranging from 25% to 85% glare reduction.


Glare Reduction and Screen Resolution: Typically the greater the amount of anti-glare the more speckling once applied to the screen. This is most noticeable on white screen backgrounds and if you read fine text or do color critical work. For that reason, you may find that not all screen protector types are listed for all devices.


*The terms "anti-glare" and "matte finish" are used interchangeably.


*If looking for a good film type for use with a stylus, anti-glare screen protectors such as MXF and MXH have a smoother texture/feel over clear screen protectors such as MXA and MXO.

Clear

MXA Icon MXC Icon MXO Icon

A number of our screen protectors are clear, which allows for excellent image quality and/or fingerprint resistance.

*The terms "High Contrast" and "Crystal Clear" are used interchangeably.

Etching Option

Etching on Photodon Screen Protector

Etching onto the screen protector's surface is a sharp and efficient way to promote your business or simply label your film with your name. For a small fee, you can have us etch the film with a company or product name, part number, or website; whatever makes sense to you! The font is very small (roughly 5.5 point size) and faint, as shown in the photo. We normally center the wording along the bottom of the screen. If you are interested in this feature, on the product page simply select "Yes" to the etching option and in the field below this selection type in the wording you desire.

EXCELLENT SERVICE! Received the film in two days! EXCELLENT PRODUCT! Went onto my laptop screen just as directed; easy to follow instructions, did not have a single air bubble. WHAT AN IMPROVEMENT -- I can now actually see what's on the computer screen, instead of a mirror image of myself.

Exceeded my expectations.

Thank you, Pam
