Teardrop and Feather Banner Benefits

Teardrop and feather flag signs can draw a lot of attention to an event or business and can be seen pretty commonly around Boise and the Treasure Valley. Businesses and organizations are realizing that these are a great option because they are:

  1. Easy to Transport

When compared to other styles of banners, they are much easier to transport due to their size and weight. Easy transportation is essential for many businesses or events that set up on their own or move around frequently.

2. Easy to Set Up

Forget ladders and stringing a banner up on a building. With feather or teardrop flags, simply set up the easy-to-assemble banner stands and attach the flags. Or, some prefer to simply push the bottom of the feather banner pole directly into the soft ground. It’s a quick and painless process.

3. Affordable

This type of signage is very affordable, but the quality is still high. For short-term events, an affordable banner like these makes sense. They can also easily be stored and re-used for reoccurring annual or monthly events.

4. Sturdy

Since these signs wave in the wind, they are designed and made to withstand the elements that Idaho experiences. This helps them have a long lifespan and stay looking new for quite a while.

5. Customizable

Feather and teardrop flags can come in different sizes and colors for every type of event. They can also be personalized with a message to pique interest in the event.

The uses for teardrop or feather flag signs is endless. Some of the most common uses for them include sales, car dealerships, new housing developments, and flea markets. While most often used outdoors, they can also be utilized indoors as well. They are an excellent way to draw attention to a booth space at a large tradeshow.

Properly Cleaning Vehicle Wraps

CFD1-300x200

Proper cleaning and care of your Vehicle wrap  will protect your investment. It also prolongs their life and maintains a high quality of appearance. Read on to learn how to properly take care of vehicle graphics.

Do:

  • Wash with a mixture of water and a mild wash or detergent
  • Test the cleaning solution on a small spot before washing the entire area
  • Read warning labels on car care products

Don’t

  • Allow fuels to stay in contact with the wrap for extended periods of time
  • Use mechanical brush washing as it could dull, scratch, or lift the edges of the graphic
  • Use automated car washes that use caustic cleaners or pressure washers

If normal cleaning procedures fail to get difficult pollutants or debris off of the vehicle wrap, try these two options:

  1. Spot clean the area with Isopropyl Alcohol and a microfiber cloth, or
  2. Moisten the cloth with a citric-based cleaner and naphtha before wiping down the area. Rinse with water and soap immediately afterward.

The best way to wash vehicle wraps or graphics is as follows:

  1. Rinse with water to wash away any loose sediments or debris with a spray nozzle
  2. Mix the mild detergent and water in a large bucket
  3. Soak the sponge in the mixture and begin working from top to bottom
  4. Rinse with clean water again using the spray nozzle
  5. Allow the vehicle to air dry or use a microfiber cloth

Although hand washing is the preferred method, pressure washing the vehicle can be done following these instructions:

  • Water pressure is kept below 2000 psi
  • Water temperature is below 180 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Use a spray nozzle with a 40-degree wide angle spray pattern
  • Keep the nozzle at least one foot away from and perpendicular to the graphic

Marketing a Landscaping Business

Businesses that offer services, such as landscaping, have to be a little more creative when it comes to marketing. Attracting new clientele means getting the business’s name in front of the public using a variety of methods. Some ways of promoting a landscaping business include:

  1. Yard Signage

Upon completion of a project, ask clients if they would mind having a promotional sign in their yard. The sign should include the company name and contact information. A graphic or logo also makes a nice addition. Placing signs at completed job sites spreads brand awareness and also lets people know who made the landscaping look so great. Infinity Signs NW can create and produce yard signs in a range of sizes and styles.

  1. Trade Shows

Having a booth at home and garden shows or other local events is a fantastic opportunity to let people know about the landscaping services being offered. Hand out promotional items with the business’s contact information to potential customers. Landscaping businesses can take advantage of unique promotional items such as seed bombs or other yardwork and garden-related items.  Take a look at the large range of promotional items available in the catalog on the Infinity Signs NW website.

  1. Vehicle Wraps

Landscaping requires many different types of vehicles and trailers. Wrapping the entire fleet of trucks and trailers is a great way to make impressions on potential clients when driving to a job site and while parked at the job site. It also creates uniformity in the appearance of the vehicles. Whether a full vehicle wrap or partial graphic is needed, Infinity Signs NW can design, create and install the wraps on any type of vehicle or trailer.

The team at Infinity Signs NW can help with all three of the marketing efforts listed above. Visit our website to see some of the yard signs, examples of vehicle wraps, and more.

Businesses That Benefit from a Wall Graphic

Vinyl-Letters-3

A well-designed full wall graphic can transform a space and provide many benefits for a business. Full walls graphics might not be right for every business, however. To determine if a full wall graphic could be beneficial, businesses need to look at these factors:

  1. Audience

As with every other marketing or advertising decision, businesses first have to identify their audience. Is the wall graphic, intended for the general public, a specific market segment or is it being used for the benefit of employees? A wall graphic meant for employees may have a completely different style than one directed at potential customers.

2. Staff Motivation

Instead of a wall graphic aimed at customers, it can be aimed at motivating the staff. It livens up the workspace, can increase energy, and make everything a little less drab. Including company mottos and mission statement also helps everyone remember what their company stands for.

3. Enticing Customers

A large, colorful, wall graphic can create interest, making new potential customers want to come in and learn more about the business. It conveys the company’s personality, it’s mission, and more. Using the right colors for a specific business can boost revenue by enticing the emotions connected to a certain color.

Full wall graphics created by Infinity Signs NW are more efficient than a painted wall mural. Graphics are easily and quickly installed by professionals, which means no drying time like paint.

Wall graphics can be installed in many areas of the business such as the lobby, sales floor, conference room, and more. They truly transform a space into a statement.

The team at Infinity Signs NW can help businesses decide if a wall graphic would be beneficial, where it should go, and the design. Visit our website to see some examples of wall graphics projects we’ve done.

Using Electronic Message Center Signage

As people drive, they take in the sights around them, including business signage. This has a tremendous impact on the success of outdoor business signage, and the rising popularity associated with electronic message center signs. These signs have moving message displays of text, graphics, or a combination of the two.

Businesses planning to upgrade their signage to an electronic message center should take into consideration these benefits that come with this type of signage:

  1. Message Versatility

In addition to promoting your business location, electronic signs can easily be updated with flashy new messages.  They can display a wide array of text and graphic combinations to relay messages to customers about sales, special events, and more.

Business owners can update the content of the messages with the click of a button and tailor certain messages to certain times of the day with scheduling. It easier and cheaper than running different commercials on radio or television each time you want to send out a new message.

  1. 24-Hour Messages

The signs can run 24/7, reaching as many potential customers as possible. They’re visible in direct sunlight, and remain illuminated throughout the night. Even though the business may only be open from 9-5, its advertising efforts will be seen at all hours.

  1. Attention Boosting

Passersby already notice business signs, but a moving, illuminated sign will grab even more attention. An electronic message center sign will increase the visibility for a business. Some businesses like to include their catch phrase for additional business branding.

If your business has a message or messages that you want to display, Infinity Signs NW can create a sign to bring your message to life. Talk to the team at Infinity Signs NW about how your business can benefit from an electronic message center sign.

Do Business Cards Still Matter?

With all of the technology in the world today, it might seem a little strange that people are still swapping business cards. Almost everything in the business world is digital and online today, so why do business cards still matter? Here are five reasons:

  1. Personal

Digitally exchanging information is often cold and impersonal. When physically handing someone a business card, there is a conversation and the chance to make a connection. Being able to talk to someone, putting a face to the name, makes that information more memorable.

  1. Direct Marketing

Potential leads, contacts, or clients are everywhere. Having a business card on hand to give people is a much simpler and effective way to market the business than telling them about it. With the contact information on a business card, the recipient can then go visit the business’s web page and social media sites, working in tandem with Internet marketing efforts.

  1. Branding

The sky is the limit when designing businesses cards. There are so many ways for a business to put their brand on a card. A creative business card can make a big impact and can further a conversation. Let the brand speak through the design, size, or style of the business card.

  1. Continued Marketing

When someone receives a business card, they might pass it on to another person in need of those services. Business cards continue to market that company each time they are passed on to another potential client.

  1. Professional and Prepared

In the business world, being prepared is everything. Writing down contact information on a scrap of paper or a napkin is a great way for it to get lost. Having business cards on hand at all times shows potential clients you are prepared and professional.

Business cards won’t be making their exit anytime soon. Let the team at Infinity Signs NW create the perfect memorable business card for your business.
