Removing Vinyl Window Graphics

Vinyl Graphics

Has your vinyl window graphic’s life come to an end? When it comes time to remove the design, the graphic could be a bit stubborn, which is a testament to how well it was installed. Follow these tips to make the process as easy and quick as possible:

Gather Tools

Lifting up the edges will likely require some tools. Find a plastic razor blade or something similar to help with the process. After it’s off, there might be some adhesive residue on the window. Purchase a cleaner that is formulated for tackling adhesive residue.

Loosen the Graphic

If the vinyl has been on the window for a long time, it can be brittle and could come off in small pieces. Use a heat gun or hair dryer to loosen its grip from the window. This will make the vinyl graphic more pliable and easier to remove in larger pieces.

Peel and Scrape

Once loosened, use the plastic razor blade to lift up the edges and begin peeling the graphic off of the window. Once this is started, it should be easy to peel it completely off.

Remove Residue

Use the residue cleaner to get as much of the adhesive off as possible. It might take some time and elbow grease, but eventually all of the residue will come off.

Clean the Window

After all that work, there’s likely to be some smudges and fingerprints. Use a window cleaning solution to get rid of any remaining smudges. Now it’s ready for another window graphic to be applied!

Not all business owners have the time or patience to remove a window graphic themselves, or they might be worried about damaging the window. In that case, call the sign experts at Infinity Signs NW. We know all the tips and tricks when it comes to applying and removing vinyl window graphics.

Using a Professional Graphic Design Service

Creating a strong brand image requires quality graphic design work. Cheap, non-professional graphic design work will ultimately lead to disappointment and is unlikely to achieve the desired results. Using a professional graphic design service to help build a strong brand image will lead to benefits like:

Saving Money

Graphic designers know the most cost-effective way to design graphics and materials for businesses. Also, the more professional the design, the better response it will have from customers. A poor design can be lackluster, created in a difficult to use program, or may not print ready, all of which can cost a business extra money later.

Stand Out

A strong brand image sets a business apart from their competition. A thoughtfully designed graphic helps to accomplish this goal. Generic logos and graphics won’t get a second look. The imagery needs to provide an instant connection to the products and services offered, which Infinity Signs NW can do.

Professionalism

To be taken seriously, a company’s logo and other graphics needs to be designed well. The logo only has a fraction of a second to make a first impression. A poorly designed logo can make customers and clients feel like the business itself is unprofessional.

Consistency

A professional graphic designer can create many different graphics for multiple projects, while making them look cohesive and consistent to better represent the brand’s image.

Saving Time

Having a knowledgeable graphic designer create the design incorporating the details wanted will save the business time. Beyond giving the designer specifics of the project and approving the design, there’s not much else required from the business owner, letting them focus on the day-to-day specifics of their business instead of graphic design.

Let the graphic design team at Infinity Signs NW take care of all the graphic design needs for logos, brochures, banners, signs and more.

5 Tips for Compelling Retail Signage

Retail Signs

Retail signage is crucial in bringing in new business. Good retail signage tells customers what or why they should be looking at your merchandise. It draws interest and makes the customer want to know more. To help retail owners know what makes compelling retail signage, here are five tips:

  1. Concise Messages

Attention spans are short, so the message the sign is portraying needs to be as well. Get to the point with as few words are possible, while still making the message understandable. Keep the design concise too. If there’s too much surrounding the text, it can become difficult to read.

  1. Fonts

While fun fonts can match a store’s personality, they aren’t always easy to read. When trying to gain a customer’s attention through signage, use clear, easy-to-read fonts that are large enough to see from a distance. Clean fonts will get the message across much better than fancy fonts.

  1. Call to Action

Signage that gives the customer a reason to buy the product will work more effectively. Using phrases like “surprise her with flowers” is more motivating than a “fresh flowers” sign. Also including “you” and “yours” will help customers visualize themselves using the product.

  1. Use Colors

Colors, especially red, are great in a retail environment. They catch the eye faster than black and white. Just be careful not to go overboard. The text needs to contrast from its background and too many colors can confuse the eye.

  1. Test the Sign

Do a few test runs with the sign. Make sure it can be seen from a good distance, it’s noticeable, and that people can tell what it’s advertising. Ask customers or friends to help test it out. If it isn’t working, edit it using the feedback and try again.
