Benefits of Investing in a Pylon Sign

Business Signs

In large shopping centers or business complexes with multiple businesses and stores, trying to fit signage in for each business on the property can be difficult. That’s where pylon signs come in. These large, easily visible signs can clearly advertise several businesses at once.

Here are some of the benefits of installing a pylon sign:

Visibility

Pylon signs are generally installed up quite high and are large enough for passersby to see them from a distance. This can draw in potential customers. Pylon signs can also be illuminated for better visibility at night.

Cost-Effective

It’s much easier and less expensive to create one large sign that can advertise multiple businesses than to create multiple signs around the property. This benefits the businesses who occupy the shopping center or business complex by keeping their costs lower.

Customizable

Almost every aspect of pylon signs can be customized, such as height, style, and size. Let each business choose their own colors and logos on their section of the sign or make it uniform in font and color for a more formal look.

Minimal Maintenance

Pylon signs need very little maintenance to stay clean. Also, any maintenance needed can be performed by the staff at Infinity Signs NW, taking the burden away from the business complex.

Landmark Status

Because pylon signs are quite large in nature, they can become an unofficial landmark within the city. People will use it as a reference when giving directions or referencing a store within it.

While some could argue that pylon signs are too common to be unique or draw attention, it’s actually the opposite. So many complexes invest in them because they work well. Their visibility and cost-effective nature make them a popular and effective type of signage around Boise and throughout the Treasure Valley.

5 Ways to Safely Secure Banners

Secure Banners

Banners can be used for many applications both inside and outside of a building.

Here are some of the most common methods for safely securing banners in different environments:

  1. Suction Cups

If the banner needs to be positioned over glass, suction cups are an excellent way to hold it in place without making permanent changes to the building. They are a quick and inexpensive way to suspend lightweight banners. Suction cups are gentle on surfaces and are easy to move if necessary.

  1. Zip Ties

For construction projects with fencing, zip ties allow the banner to attach to the fence securely. Zip ties have a strong hold, which can protect the banner from flying away during windy weather. If the banner is larger, multiple grommets and zip ties might be needed to keep it in place.

  1. Velcro

Often at trade shows a banner needs to attach to a fabric-covered table. Velcro brand hooks and loops can stick to many fabric surfaces and provide a simple solution for this situation.

  1. String

When weather isn’t a concern or the banner will be placed inside, using a heavy-duty string will work just fine. Simply thread the heavy-duty string or thin roping through the grommets and tie it to an appropriate support.

  1. Bungee Cords

In areas with high winds, bungee cords can be used to securely fasten the banner while allowing it the flexibility to move with the wind. Since bungee cords have some give, while banners do not, putting the extra tension on the bungee cord instead of the banner will help prevent the banner from tearing.

No matter how your banner needs to be secured, Infinity Signs NW can accommodate it during the design process. Learn more about applications for banners and see Infinity Signs NW’s previous work on our website or give us a call at 208.473.2913 to get started on your next business banner.

Promotional Coffee Mugs

Promotional Products

Searching for the perfect fall promotional product? Go with custom coffee mugs! Everyone is trading in their cold brews and iced coffees for warmer drinks with the temperatures dropping. It’s the perfect time to invest in promotional coffee mugs whether they are ceramic, insulated to-go varieties, or stainless-steel tumblers.

One of the reasons coffee mugs are such a popular promotional item is their usefulness and the popularity of coffee throughout the years. Coffee is a staple in most people’s lives. They drink it to wake up in the morning, on the drive to work, and even in the afternoon for a pick-me-up. This morning brew won’t be going anywhere soon, which is why coffee mugs continue to be a great promotional product investment for many businesses.

Even those who don’t drink coffee find ways to use ceramic coffee mugs. Some other uses include: holding pens, using them as vases, candy dishes and more! To-go mugs and tumblers can be used for more than just coffee too. Their versatility is a huge advantage.

Besides their versatility in use, coffee mugs can be uniquely designed with graphics, logos, mission statements and more. They are also versatile with many styles, colors and sizes of coffee mugs available. A basic diner mug is great for home or work, and to-go mugs are great for those who are always on the go.

To use coffee mugs for increasing brand awareness, hand them out as gifts for people who purchase something from the company or include them in a gift basket with other goodies. It might seem like a small gift, but is likely to get a lot of use and brand visibility.
