Let's Talk Shop: Window Films

Graphics on windows are a huge opportunity to expand advertising as well as the products you offer. From small spot graphics to full coverage, there are many options on the market to meet your customer's needs.

For vehicle advertising, we often think about the body of the vehicle but the windows on the vehicles are a blank canvas that shouldn't be overlooked. Extending graphics onto windows provides an excellent opportunity for expanding advertising.

Advertising may also be added to storefronts by incorporating large vinyl graphics and specialty window films. For interior design applications there are a large number of decorative finishes available as well.

Let's Talk Shop: Managing Fleet Graphic Accounts

Let's Talk Shop: Managing Fleet Graphic Accounts

It takes a lot of time and hard work to run a successful company. Businesses that utilize a fleet of vehicles in their daily operations often turn them into a source of advertising by purchasing vehicle wraps. Whether they fully wrap their fleet or choose spot graphics, setting up and maintaining this advertising is time consuming for the business owner.

Over the years I've realized that the companies and suppliers I order from most are the ones that make it really easy for me to do so. We try to apply this same idea to our own daily operations.

With existing customers we set them up on payment terms, stay organized to speed up reorders, and push their job through production by keeping their wrap materials in stock. With new customers we have to spend a little more time gathering their information, but part of our sales strategy is making it as easy as possible for them to create a new working relationship with us.

So how does this specifically apply to fleet graphics? A company operating a fleet of vehicles wants ease of ordering and consistency from their sign company. Competitive pricing is a factor as well, especially initially, but the importance of cost is often eclipsed by the other factors.

Mobile Apps Changing the Way Sign and Print Providers Do Business

Mobile Apps Changing the Way Sign and Print Providers Do Business

It’s hard to remember how we even communicated before the advent of the smartphone. Mobile app technology has certainly altered the way we do things and even how we conduct our daily lives. We have become a society of instant gratification and one that is constantly on the go.  Now, with many of these apps, we can multi-task all at the touch of a button.

Mobile technology -- in the form of smartphones, tablets and notebooks -- has certainly transformed us forever.  We can send important files almost anywhere in mere seconds and we can also remotely work with clients in real-time no matter where in the world they might be.

Mobile apps—software applications developed specifically for use on small mobile computing devices—are also helping change the business landscape of the sign and commercial graphics industry in a number of areas. There are a host of printing, estimating and design apps out there that are helping make life easier for sign shops and their clients. Let’s take a look some of these apps, what they do, how they work and the solutions they provide.

Shop Talk: Tips for Solo Sign Installs

Shop Talk: Tips for Solo Sign Installs

Even though we have a small staff, it is not unusual that I find myself out installing signs of all kinds solo -- one man, one sign, and a need for three hands or even an eight-foot-long right arm.

Very often there is an easy way, and a hard way, and I try diligently to find the easy way if I can. For this month’s Shop Talk we’ll look at a couple of handy shop-made items that make one-man installs go smoother and faster, and an idea or two on making a one-man bucket more useful and user friendly.
