Benefits of Vinyl Wrapping a Boat


Vinyl wrapping boats is a fun new trend that’s really going to be hot this summer.  While it’s certainly a great way to advertise for upcoming events or boat friendly clubs and restaurants, it’s also incredibly practical for the everyday boat owner as well.  Owning a boat can be high maintenance and expensive but a vinyl wrap can help with both of those issues. Take a look at some of the great benefits of getting your boat wrapped and consider giving Infinity Signs a call to get started designing your beautiful new boat look.

  1. Cost – the cost for a vinyl wrap is generally about a third of the cost of a professional paint spray job!
  2. Low Maintenance – no more buffing and polishing, simply use soap and water to clean. If the boat gets scratched or dented there’s no need to replace the entire wrap, in most cases a simple patch can be used to restore the original look.  A common question from customers has been whether the vinyl will lift or peel at all.  This should not be an issue for professionally installed vinyl wraps.
  3. Fast – most wraps can be completed in just a day or two which will reduce yard time and thus total cost for the project.
  4. Eco-Friendly – unlike toxic marine paints vinyl wraps use no chemicals or solvents, making it a much eco-friendlier option.
  5. Longevity – most wraps last up to 7 years, similar to a marine paint job. Vinyl has the added benefit of being more fade resistant than paint as well, meaning it will look great for all 7 years.
  6. Appearance – when your boat’s in the water no one will be able to tell whether you have a vinyl wrap or a new paint job, so why pay more? The wrap is also completely reversible.  If you try a new design and decide you’re not crazy about it, we can simply remove it.  In fact, a side benefit to the wrap is that it will preserve the original paint job on the boat and improve the resale value.
  7. Totally Unique – you can completely customize the look of your boat with a vinyl wrap. Virtually anything your imagination comes up with can be created!

Now is a great time to get started on your custom vinyl boat wrap.  As the summer season approaches our professional installers are going to start getting booked so beat the rush and get started today.


Getting the Most Out Of A Vehicle Wrap

Vehicle Wrap

A vehicle wrap is a business investment. To get the most of that investment, it needs to be well maintained. Knowing what to avoid and how to properly clean a vehicle wrap will keep it in optimal condition for years to come.

Cleaning Tips

Cleaning a vehicle wrap is easy. Simply use water and a gentle automotive detergent. Scrub it with a soft cloth and rinse after. Dry it with a microfiber cloth or towel to minimize water spots. It should be cleaned at least once a week or more depending on how much dirt and pollutants the vehicle is exposed to.

For spot cleaning, use isopropyl rubbing alcohol and rinse with cool water. This will take care of any small areas that may have gotten something splashed on them.

What to Avoid

Avoid taking the vehicle through a carwash with brushes. The brushes can be too harsh on the wrap, causing lifting or peeling of the edges.

Avoid pressure washing the vehicle over 2,000 psi. As long as it stays under 2,000 psi, with a 40 degree wide angle spray pattern, the wrap will be fine. Keep the water temperature below 140 degrees Fahrenheit and keep the nozzle 12 inches away from the vehicle.

It’s best to avoid leaving the vehicle outside for an excessive amount of time. The outdoor elements like debris and pollutants can cause damage to the wrap, especially the trunk lid, roof, or hood. These areas can attract pollutants easily. Parking under cover when possible or in shady areas when cover isn’t available will really extend the life of your vehicle wrap.

The better a car or truck wrap looks, the more people it attracts. Get the most advertising possible out of a wrap by keeping it well-maintained so it lasts for year to come. Infinity Signs NW can answer any other questions about caring for vehicle wrap.

Placement of Monument Signs

monument signs

Monument signs are eye-catching and enhance visibility for a business. When customers can find the business with ease, it helps drive traffic to the business. These are the reasons many businesses choose to invest in a monument sign.

While there are many factors that work in sync to create an effective monument sign, like size and design, a crucial part of this is its placement on the property. If the monument sign is put in the wrong place, it could lose all effectiveness for the business.

The best place to have a monument sign installed is near the entrance of the business’s parking lot. This guides visitors into the right area, minimizing possible confusion. It also gives them enough time to slow down and turn into the parking lot safely, even if it is on impulse.

Some businesses on large campuses have multiple monument signs posted around the edges of the area. This is common for businesses such as manufacturing plants and hospitals.

If the sign is placed too far away from the parking lot entrance or building, it can create confusion for visitors, making them pull into the wrong area or miss it completely. Monument signs that are placed near the parking lot, but too far back from the road can also cause problems cue to low visibility.

The surrounding landscaping should also be taken into consideration. Bushes, trees, and other elements can end up blocking the sign. They should be planted around the sign, taking in the visibility points from the roadway. Make sure plants are regularly trimmed back enough so they don’t block the sign from view.

The team at Infinity Signs NW draws up the plans, creates, and installs monument signs for many businesses in the Boise area. They know how to take these factors into consideration for the best placement of the sign possible. Call us at 208.473.2913 to talk about creating a monument sign for your business.

Business Card Etiquette


Business cards have been an effective way for people to market themselves for decades. To make sure business cards achieve the desired effect, there are some rules of etiquette and tips everyone should follow when handing them out or receiving them.

  1. Never Run Out

Business people should never leave home without a good amount of business cards. Running out can be seen as unprofessional and detrimental to making a business connection. If heading to a networking event, make sure to stock up and pack extra.

  1. Stay Updated

Correct contact information is essential. As soon as something changes, the cards need to be reprinted. Infinity Signs NW can help with this. Having to correct an aspect of a business card looks bad and can cause contact confusion.

  1. Don’t Be Aggressive

Being overly aggressive in handing out business cards isn’t good. Wait to be asked for a card, or when it is appropriate in the conversation. If contacting each other comes up, or someone seems interested in the product/service, then offer it. If the person isn’t asking, ask for theirs first, and they might reciprocate.

  1. Proper Storage

Protect business cards from wear and tear by keeping them in a protective case. This keeps them looking fresh and nice. Make sure you can easily access your business cards. Digging around in bags, briefcases, and pockets for business cards makes the person look disorganized.

  1. Be Considerate

Just because you collected a business card does not give you permission to begin spamming the person with phone calls or emails. Use the information on the card to contact them either to learn more about their business or to send business their way.

By following these simple business card guidelines, you can represent yourself and your business in a professional manner. The team at Infinity Signs NW can help create unique, well-designed business cards sure to grab everyone’s attention. There are many options to choose from regarding finishes, colors, shapes, and special touches.

Channel Letter Signs and Installation


Channel letter signs are a popular option for businesses. They are dimensional and stand out away from the building, making quite the impact. They can be made using a wide variety of fonts, colors, and sizes.

The term channel letter signage encompasses many different styles of signs. Here’s a rundown of each type:

  • Front Lit Channel Letters

This is the most commonly seen and is also called standard channel letters. The illumination is projected through the front faces of the letters.

  • Reverse Channel Letters

In this type of sign, the illumination comes from the back of the letters. They are also commonly called halo lit or back lit letters. The light is reflected off the wall behind them, creating a halo.

  • Open Face Channel Letters

These letters have open faces, allowing for the placement of neon illumination. They’re bright and eye-catching when used in the right situation.

  • Front/Back Lit Channel Letters

Those looking for a dramatic sign should consider this type of channel lettering. These letters produce illumination from both the front and back making for a dynamic and bright sign.

Channel letter signs can be mounted in a several ways:

  • Raceway Mount

Channel letter signs are often installed on a raceway, which is a metal box that houses the electrical wiring and power supply for the letters. It reduces the number of wall penetrations required for mounting.

  • Flush Mount

In this installation technique, the letters are attached directly to the building. This creates a flawless appearance that many people favor for their business signs.

  • Backer Mount

Letters are attached to a metal cabinet or backer panel that is larger in height and width then the channel letter configuration.

Channel letter signs are popular because of their ability to make the signage unique and illuminated. Businesses interested in this type of sign should contact Infinity Signs NW.

Installing Window Graphics

Window Graphic Installation

Window graphics are seen more frequently in storefront windows this time of year. Many stores have them installed to advertise a huge year end sale or to decorate for the holidays. Those who haven’t invested in vinyl window graphics before, might not know there are two different ways of installing them.

Inside Installation

This style refers to installing the window graphic on the interior side of the window. The graphic is printed on the adhesive side. This is a common choice for store owners who might be worried about the outside elements damaging their window graphics. Another benefit is that when installed inside, people cannot vandalize the graphics by ripping or cutting them.

Outside Installation.

When putting the graphic on the outside of the window, the graphic is printed opposite the adhesive side. Many storefront owners with tinted windows choose this option so that the graphic is not partially obscured from view. The tint can distort the colors of the window graphic installed on the interior side of the window, making it harder to read for passersby. Also, window graphics are designed to withstand the elements and fading, even when placed outside.

No matter which way they are installed, window graphics help to drive traffic to storefronts and keep customers informed. Use them for decorating purposes, advertising a sale, or informing customers of business hours. Window graphics can be made to fit the whole window, or just a small portion, giving stores a lot of options.

Infinity Signs NW can meet with businesses to determine the best way to create and install window graphics for every situation. Our tools and training make installing windows graphics a quick and painless process for businesses.
