Digital Signage

With all the new technology hitting the streets, its just a matter of time before signs are all digital. With higher resolution it is easier on the eyes, helping people to pick up colors and visuals better. It also allows for an advertising system where more then one company can be advertised on a sign. With the ability to play through a few different images it makes it easy for multiple companies to advertise with one sign. Digital signage is also great to display dates of sales or events. They are able to give a statement allowing viewers to get some details about the company or event rather then just a name. This is an awesome advertising tool that is not used effectively in today’s advertising. It would be the equivalent of having a commercial on the sign in front of your building. They have casing that protect them from water and any other elements. So no worries about repairs, another advantage is that your sign wont fade or wear out.

Look at New York City, the place it lite up from building to building. Producing thousand of advertisement for all different companies.

    

Wrap Care

If you have transformed your bland old paint job into a unique or business advertising vehicle wrap, I would like to congratulate you. You have now successfully put your car into a new realm that will have all the people on the streets looking your way. Having a vinyl wrap is different then a paint job and requires a little different care.

1) Automatic car washes are now out of the question. The high pressure water and bristles from the machine will cause damage to your wrap and costly repairs. You should hand wash your car with a sponge, and a low pressure or mist of water. If you have to use a high pressure water system be sure to stand back at a distance and not to hold the stream on one point of the car, doing so could cause a tear in your vinyl.

2) When using wax, be sure to hand wax your car and DO NOT use a buffer. There are different kinds of wax, be sure to use one that is suitable for vinyl such as turtle wax. If you go to get your vehicle detailed be sure that they also use a wax that is vinyl friendly. Waxing your vehicle will keep your wrap clean and polished and also make it easier to deinstall of the wrap, leaving little to no adhesive behind.

3) Avoid parking under trees for any long periods of time. Sap from some trees can damage your wrap causing you more money.

4) If you have window perf it should be waxed as well. It will give your perf a longer life span and help the lamination. Do not use high pressure on the window perf as well, it can also cause damage.

Be sure to protect your wrap, it is an investment and bad care can cause to money down the drain.

Motorcycle Wrap

Beyond wrapping your vehicle, you can also wrap motorcycles. It is not often that you see advertisement on a motorcycle, unless they are in a race. This allows for more creativity to give your bike that special wow factor to make people take a second glance while your riding down the road. This is my 2001 Yamaha R6, while riding around I have received many compliments and people even asking if it was a custom paint job. Express your creativity through the wrap on your motorcycle like I did with this negative vapor skull wrap. Raise eyebrows and be visible every time you put your two wheels on the streets!

NASCAR

Interested in NASCAR? One left turn after the next right? Not at all, so much strategy and precision driving is needed in order to be successful on those roads. How about the sponsors that are plastered all over those cars? Yea everyone see’s who’s driving what brand but no one thinks about the strategy and precision that goes into getting those on the car.

There are between 80-100 sponsors on a single car! There is a strategy to figuring out what sponsors are going where (this depending on the amount of money each sponsor pays), then figuring out how to get them to fit in an organized and neat way. You also have to fit a number and sometimes a slogan on the car.

Now did you realize that these cars are all wrapped? I’m talking about cars going up to speeds of 200 mph, bumping into each other and grinding the walls. If that doesn’t show you the durability of a vinyl wrap I don’t know what will.

Now think about the precision of these wraps. They have everything from headlights, taillights, turn signals, from front to back the car is perfectly wrapped with all the features of a regular car and all the sponsor logos in addition. These cars are like speeding billboards getting thousands of views every week. This is a professional sport using vehicle wraps to advertise just like what you can do to advertise your business. Obviously you wont have 80-100 sponsors, but covering your car in just your business, including logo, slogan, number, and any other details of the business will still grab the attention of thousands of potential customers a week! Why not use the number one advertising method to your advantage, call us at Laser Sharp Sign Design and will get you started.

Matte Colors

Matte colors are no longer just for primer, they are becoming a new style that is taking the creativity of colors to new levels. This green VW Jetta got wrapped in a matte black followed up by carbon fiber on the hood, roof, mirrors, and gas tank to give it more character. A color in which most people look at as a “primer” or unfinished paint job is now a new style that is starting to get some second looks while driving down the streets. Almost every car on the road has a gloss finish, and the ones that don’t are unfinished paint jobs or cars with replacement parts from junk yards. Obviously when half your car is gloss and half is matte it is not going to look good, but instead of going all gloss you can change the style and go all matte. Now you have a new style that gets people to look your way. But don’t think going out and painting your car matte will solve your problems and there’s a few reasons for that. One being that a primer paint will not hold up for very long, after the weather beats on it, it will start to fade and even have spots where your gloss color sneaks out from underneath. Now you have a matte color with spots of gloss color shining on it. Another reason being why mess up the initial factory color of your car? Once you paint it your stuck with that color until you paint it again. With a vinyl wrap you can put on this color, which will last 5-7 years, then when you decide to sell the vehicle or that you are sick of the color you can remove the wrap and you are back to your original factory color. No damage done to the paint, as a matter of fact the vinyl acts as a protector to your paint underneath.

Identity

If you dont have signage on and around your company building then how are customers ever suppose to find you? Its incredible the amount of companies that refuse to renew their signs whether theirs are just old or even non existing. As a matter of fact I challenge you to look around more the next time you go for a drive and see how many business you can spot that could use an upgrade on their signs that identify them. Without an identity you are nothing, no one will recognize you, so no one will come. “A business with no sign, is a sign of no business” is what we always say. Don’t let the signage that represents you look old and beat up, that’s where people get their first impression on your company from. When you go to publics the first thing you see is their giant green letters. Right away you know where you are. Its the same for all other companies big or small, customers want to be able to identify you. Make sure that your identity will impress them and give them a good first impression.
