a cheap option for covering windows

Hi all, i va a customer that has just put up a new building but wants his showroom obscured for a while until they are happy with it all sorted, so its only going to be on for around a year or less and doesn't want full black out, my issue would be frosting isn't that cheap for the amount needed and after a year it will be stuck like poo to a blanket when it comes to removal, same goes for tinting.... anyone know of another option on this? its not something i do a lot off so there might be a cheap way of doing it i don't know off

thanks
John

That looks the job Harry and it comes in at a way better price than etched vinyl, thanks for the heads up as i dont use metamark that much but now have the rep from a supplier in southern ireland calling in
