When you think of stickers you probably picture the pack of small, glittery adhesives that came in specialty coloring books when you were a kid. But unless your business sells coloring books, those cartoonish stickers really aren’t going to benefit your marketing strategy.
Fortunately, there’s a lot more to stickers than the arts and crafts aisle, and when it comes to choosing one that’s right for your business, the options are pretty much endless. Read on to find out why stickers are not just for kids.
The workplace is an important part of our lives. More than half the world’s population will spend at least one-third of their adult lives at work, making it more important than ever to work in an office that is aesthetically pleasing. But with so many offices decked wall-to-wall in industrial gray and beige, finding a workplace that’s easy on the eyes may be more difficult than it sounds. Read More
Marketing and promotion are as vital to the health and sustainability of a small business as the blood flowing through our veins is vital to our bodies. One of the most effective ways to get people’s attention is through the use of eye-catching images and graphic design. In this era of “too long; didn’t-read”, a picture really is worth a thousand words. Read More
Have you ever walked into an office and noticed absolutely nothing? You look around and all you see are bare walls and their dull, monotone paint. The only thing you might really remember is that quiet, repetitive Muzak at a volume that you can barely hear, and in fact, you probably wouldn’t if your mind was occupied with something other than the drab walls. Aside from the reason that you are there or the person that you are meeting, the impression of the office leaves you with an uninspiring memory.
Now, let’s imagine the opposite. You walk into an office that has the walls adorned with beautiful pictures But this art isn’t wrapped in a frame, rather, it’s adhered right to the wall. We’re talking about custom wall vinyl – letters, words, images, thoughts, ideas and more, displayed strategically throughout the office to give visitors a sense of who you are, what you represent and to generally create a thought provoking atmosphere. Chances are that upon leaving an office decorated in this way, you will have a lasting impression that goes well beyond the reason you were there in the first place. And that’s the point.
Why Custom Vinyl Decals?
Custom designed wall vinyl can help your walls sing with life. This is not graffiti, but rather easily installed, custom designed pieces of colored vinyl that can be displayed on almost any wall, whether it is in your office or even in your home. With the right amount of imagination any wall can be transformed from a blank canvas into a creative expression in almost no time.
Do you have a company tagline that you would like people to know? Or what about a dynamic, full color company logo? How about some stylish new designs, awe-inspiring words of wisdom or even a comical caricature of your employee of the month? The ideas are truly endless in regards to what you can display and the reality is that each piece can be uniquely created to help express your company culture and help add to your brand recognition. Imagine walking through an office and being able to see a pictorial history of the company as you are being led through the hallways. What a great way to bring a potential client “into your world” without even saying a word.
Custom vinyl wall installations allow you full creativity without the mess of stencils, the hassle of wallpaper, or the expense of hiring a professional decorator. You can personalize your space easily, quickly and affordably. They are made with high-quality interior-grade matte or glossy coated removable vinyl that looks hand-painted and are safe to apply to interior walls or any smooth surface. For best results we recommend flat, semi gloss walls with little texture. Custom wall vinyl is a great way to personalize your walls with unique ideas that have special meaning to your business.
How Much Do They Cost?
Finally, we would be remiss if this discussion ended without some mention of pricing. To be fair, while we can say that custom wall vinyl installations are affordable, we cannot put a specific price tag on them because each one is unique and there are many variables that go into the cost. For example, we recently completed a 2.5ft x 2.5ft piece with installation and design for just under $100. However that location was easily accessible and had artwork that was fairly simple. Some of the factors involved in wall vinyl pricing include the type of material being used, the size of the installation, where the wall is located and the position on the wall it is being installed, the location of the building and of course the complexity of the design.
Each of these variables is considered when pricing your installation. At Printing Solutions we want to help you communicate your messages in a passionate way and our pricing is fair and competitive. If you are looking to make your walls talk and tell your story, give us a call today and let our team guide you through the process.
The word is out. The walls are talking and with contour cut vinyl decals they have some important things to say. It’s not just the walls either, because vinyl can be applied to most any smooth surface. They are a smart way to display an important message and are very versatile, providing countless ways to advertise. Whether you want to alert customers of special deals, list your hours of operation, or just feature the products and services your business provides – using your storefront window, front door or the blank wall in your lobby can be an inexpensive solution. Using vinyl decals is the perfect way to draw attention to your business, keep people informed and hopefully bring in new customers.
Decal Lettering & Lamination
Large or small, letters, words, phrases or images – your vinyl decals are easily customized and can be repositioned or updated as needed, making them great for holiday promotions and recurring sales. Vinyl lettering comes complete and ready to apply with self-adhesive lettering. It comes pre-spaced in words or phrases as needed. Simply peel off the paper backing and the vinyl lettering will stick to the (Pre Applied) masking. Apply in one application. Once positioned correctly just smooth on firmly then remove the masking, leaving the vinyl lettering. It’s a perfect choice for use on virtually any smooth surface. In addition, they are very durable and will last for a long time. Our recommendation would be to produce your decals with a laminate coating to make them last even longer. In fact, the biggest variable for vinyl longevity is the sun and coating them with laminate can help combat the cracking that the sun can cause after approximately 3 years. When displayed in a weather controlled, non sun exposed area laminated vinyl can last indefinitely.
The effectiveness of custom vinyl decals, like most marketing materials comes from their design. However, their versatility makes them a bit more functional as well. For example, while it might be a great idea to display your company logo and colors in large format across your front window, it might be just as important to provide information within your office that is not necessarily promotional by nature. By labeling entrances and exits, restrooms, adding witty company anecdotes and generally fun displays throughout your interior walls you can create an attractive, visually appealing workplace that could help enhance your employee’s productivity and produce positive vibes throughout. You can make vinyl decals to your specification. They can be back adhesive or face adhesive. They can be printed on any color vinyl you want and with any font style you choose. The ideas are endless and you can use your logo and print it in a decal, or create any custom die-cut vinyl graphic that interests you.
Designing Your Decals
When designing your decals, we suggest that you keep things simple to maximize visibility. This is essential when you view the graphics from a distance. Intricately designed artwork with detailed images might lose some of their impact. Also keep in mind that negative space can be important as well. For example, thinking outside the norm and using the negative space for transparency on a window can be a positive thing. Color is another thing to consider. Remember, simplicity is best so it’s a good idea to limit the number of colors used to just 2 or 3 instead of multiple shades of the same general color schemes.
