Logo Graphics Curb Appeal

If you rely on foot traffic, poor curb appeal can hurt your business. With custom logo graphics, however, you can more easily attract new customers.

If you heavily rely on foot traffic, poor curb appeal can break your business.

The average attention span for humans reportedly dropped to eight seconds in 2013, so if you don’t have curb appeal, you aren’t going to attract any customers. With custom logo graphics and solid curb appeal, however, you can hold the attention of those passing by and get them into your store.

Improving Curb Appeal

As consumers, we have to make pretty quick decisions on whether or not we want to buy something. Normally, that comes down to the quality of the product and the trustworthiness of the business.

Window Tinting Artwork

Many museums and galleries limit natural light to prevent direct sunlight from damaging artwork, however, reducing UV light is very manageable.

“No space, architecturally, is a space unless it has natural light.”

— Louis I. Kahn

Light plays a very important role in art, not just in the creation of a work – the shading, the lines, the perspective, the coloring, etc. – but also in the enjoyment of a piece.

“When appropriately lighting an exhibit, it is important to consider not just the quantity but also the quality of the light used,” write authors Chris Hancock, Shelby Hinchliff, and Justina Hohmann in the “Daylighting Museums Guide.” (more…)

Protect Client Privacy with Commercial Window Tinting

Commercial Window Tinting Privacy

Commercial window tinting is designed to enhance privacy without sacrificing your view, but that is just the beginning. Window tinting truly does it all.

Depending on your industry, client privacy could be a big deal. Doctors, for example, have an obligation to protect their patient’s privacy – safeguarding their medical records and maintaining privacy while in the office. Other industries may not be under strict legal guidelines, like HIPAA, but that does not mean client privacy is not a top priority. Doctors, lawyers, social workers, certain government contractors, medical facilities, businesses with high-profile clientele, and so many more have a need – an obligation – to protect client privacy. Commercial Window Tinting can help.

There is a fine line between the need for privacy and the desire for natural light – window tinting addressee both. Similar to limousines, commercial window tinting helps darken your building’s windows so onlookers can’t…well, look on.
