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.

Promotional Products for Dental Offices

Business Marketing Materials

Almost everyone dreads going to the dentist. However, getting free things after a trip to the dentist can make it a little better for both kids and adults. Dentists have a great opportunity to increase their patient’s dental health, improve visits, and increase brand awareness by handing out branded promotional products.

Here are some fun ideas for branded promotional products:

  • Stress Ball

The dentist brings out all kinds of stress and anxiety. A branded stress ball will help patients keep their anxieties under control during the visit and after. Both children and adults will get use out of it. There are many different shapes of stress balls like lips or a tooth that relate back to dentistry.

  • Lip Balm

After dental work, sometimes the patients’ lips can get dry. Relieve that issue with some branded lip balm. They’ll continue using it long after leaving, which could possibly remind them to take better care of their teeth and recommend the dentist to friends.

  • Toothbrush

Everyone needs an extra toothbrush or two at home in their bathroom. Whether the patient uses it themselves, or gives it to a guest who forgot to pack one, it can help increase brand awareness. It may not be the most exciting promotional product, but a practical, useful one.

  • Compact Mirror

Compacts are generally used for adjusting makeup, but they can also be useful for flossing after a meal. Every time the compact is pulled out and used, it can be seen by others, increasing exposure.

  • Water Bottle

Part of dental health is staying hydrated. Make it easier for patients to stay hydrated with a branded water bottle. There are tons of styles and sizes to choose from.

Business Card Etiquette

BusinessCardsNew

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.

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.

Advertising with Feather Flags

Feather Flags

Feather flags can be used for a variety of advertising events and purposes. Their many benefits have helped launch them into popularity in recent years. Some of these benefits include:

  1. Transportation

The size and weight of feather flags make them easy to transport. This is a huge benefit to those who use them at multiple events throughout the year.

  1. Set Up

While transporting them is easy, setting up and taking down feather flags is even easier. They simply need to be placed and secured in the stand. Often, the stand and hardware come in a convenient carrying case as well. When used outside they can often be secured directly into the ground without a stand. This saves a lot of time and hassle before events.

  1. Affordability

When compared to other types of signage for this type of advertising, feather flags are a great low-cost option. This can help companies stay within their budget, while still making an impact.

  1. Durability

These banners are built to blow in the wind and can outlast the ever-changing, unpredictable weather Idaho often experiences. When properly secured, businesses won’t have to worry about them falling over or ripping due to weather conditions.

  1. Flexibility

Feather flags can be used for events or sales both indoors and outdoors. They can have text on one side, or both, and in a variety of colors. This flexibility of use and design makes them perfect for many advertising opportunities.

Use feather flags at trade shows, for outdoor events, large sales, advertising a new housing development, and so much more. Their large size and movement makes them stand out and attract attention wherever they are used.

Talk to the team at Infinity Signs NW about creating feather flags for an event or sale. They can create colorful, eye-catching feather flags that can be used for years to come.

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.

See some of the coffee mugs Infinity Signs NW can order and design in our catalog or give us a call at 208-473-2916 for details on coffee mugs and other Promotional Product Specials.
