Custom Logo Graphics Drive Business

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015
Custom Logo Graphics

A custom logo graphic is exactly what it sounds like, a graphic placed in your store window that not only displays your logo, but often important information.

Remember the classic line from the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie Kindergarten Cop, “Who is your daddy and what does he do?” Well, customers tend to have a similar experience with your business every time they approach your front door. What is your business and what do you do? If these questions can’t be easily answered when looking at your storefront, then you have already failed. Not only does your storefront need to be aesthetically pleasing to help attract customers – as much as 70% of first-time sales come from curb appeal – but it also needs to better inform potential customers about your business. This is where Custom Logo Graphics can really help.

What Are Custom Logo Graphics?

A custom logo graphic is exactly what it sounds like, a graphic placed in your store window that not only displays your logo, but often important information such as store hours or your company tagline. These seemingly simple bits of information can be the difference between a new customer and a lost opportunity.

“Store window displays play important roles in influencing shoppers’ store entry decisions and their perceptions of brand/store image,” explain researchers Hyunjoo Oh and Jenny Petrie in their article “How do storefront window displays influence entering decisions of clothing stores?”

Does your storefront leave much to be desired?

Additional Benefits of Custom Logo Graphics

  1. Advertising: Your storefront – your curb appeal – should be treated like advertising, because that is what it is. Just like a television or print ad, your storefront should be viewed as a way to attract potential customers.
  2. Branding: Window graphics are just another way to build your brand.
  3. Provide Direction: Window graphics are a great way to provide direction in an aesthetically pleasing way. What are your hours? Where is parking located? Are you open? Push or pull?
  4. And More!

How Commercial Solar Tinting Increases Security

Commercial Solar Tinting Security

The best way to easy increase security is with commercial solar tinting.

A window is a wonderful thing that lets the outside in without allowing the worst aspects of the outdoors into your building. This miracle, however, can be mitigated by a couple of security factors. First, window glass is only so strong. While designed to take punishment over time from the forces of nature, a sharp enough hit at one point can break the glass and allow an intruder in. The second, more manageable downside is that glass is usually clear on both sides: if you can see out, someone can see in. (more…)

Residential-Window-Treatment Air Conditioning Costs

With residential window tinting, you can help keep your home cooler while cutting down on expensive air conditioning costs.

Everyone looks forward to those long summer days, but homeowners do not look forward to expensive air conditioning costs!

While constantly running air conditioners is expensive, leaving the window open and using fans just doesn’t keep you cool. With residential window tinting, you can help keep your home cooler while cutting down on expensive air conditioning costs.

Investing in Residential Window Tinting

During the summer, your air condition bill can cost you as much as $400 dollars! Unfortunately for many American families, this number looks all too familiar. While residential window tinting is an initial cost, it will help you keep your house cool, and cut down your energy expenses. You’ll save end up saving money, but you don’t have to give up the comfort of a cool home. That’s a win-win! (more…)

Commercial Window Tinting Helps Boost Curb Appeal

Commercial-Window Tinting Curb Appeal

Some business owners think that commercial window tinting isn’t inviting to customers, but that is actually the opposite of the truth!

To increase the curb appeal of your business, commercial window tinting will help you get noticed.

Attracting customers can seem tricky, but it’s all about making your business intriguing enough to enter. With commercial window tinting, you not only create a more professional look, but also entice the customer to find out what is inside your store!

Stand Out with Commercial Window Tinting

You might find that not only is your business in competition with similar businesses in your general area, but some companies have to compete with similar businesses on the same block! If a potential customer walks by your building, one of the first things they will notice is the appearance of the windows. Commercial window tinting can actually help hide everyday dirt and streaks, which instantly increases the curb appeal. This means that a potential customer will notice your business first, and not visit your competitor. (more…)

Residential Window Tinting Prevents Furniture Fading

Residential Window Tinting Furniture Fading

Residential window tinting can block up to 99% of harmful UV rays.

Homeowners normally welcome in sunlight with open arms, but many people don’t realize the damaging and harmful effects of UV rays on furniture.

Furniture, rugs, drapes and carpets are susceptible to the extra light entering your home, and even if you aren’t letting in direct sunlight, UV rays can still have devastating effect. Watching your furniture fade will not be entertaining.

Sun Damage and Furniture

Lying out on a beach all day isn’t the only way sun can cause damage!

UV lights can run havoc inside your home by bleaching photographs, destroying paper and documents, fade pigments, ruin textiles and break down the finish on woods. You worked hard for the possessions inside your home, and you don’t want your furniture, pictures and paintings to fade. Unfortunately, when something faces sun damage, the effects are generally irreversible and furniture fading is inevitable.   (more…)
