The Role of Windows in Business Curb Appeal

Friday, June 12th, 2015
Windows Curb Appeal

In order to boost curb appeal, window tints and window graphics can help turn a passerby into a customer.

If your business relies on foot traffic, how effective are your windows at highlighting why customers should pay attention to your store? Many business owners make the mistake of spending too much money on sign waivers, and they don’t focus on the aesthetic appeal of their storefront. In order to boost curb appeal, window tints and window graphics can help turn a passerby into a customer. (more…)

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!

Curb Appeal with Window Graphics

Friday, January 16th, 2015

Curb Appeal Window GraphicsWhen driving through a city or town, chances are most store window fronts look effectively identical to the passerby.  Only the truly outstanding or outrageous storefronts get a second glance.  People are too busy to give an uninteresting sight a second look.  This is bad for businesses that rely on word-of-mouth to survive—a picture isn’t worth a thousand words if nobody sees it.  This is where window graphics come into play.  By investing in the art of catching the wandering eyes of passing people, known as “curb appeal,” a company can build more business for itself through an inviting façade that speaks volumes about the quality content inside.

How to Appeal

The sign to a store is absolutely everything when drawing in crowds from the street.  A standard sign is mediocre and doesn’t catch enough attention.  A sign with flair will make heads literally turn in surprise, and the passerby with think, “What an interesting store.  I should look into it.”  The payoff comes when the person remembers the interesting sign and looks up the store on the Internet—or better yet, takes a moment to stop inside and browse the wares.  The three major aspects of a store sign are visibility, upkeep, and information.  Someone should be able to see the sign while riding down the street or, better yet, from across the street.  A faded sign should be refurbished or replaced, as an unattractive sign will tell the viewer more about the store than the store itself might say.  The store’s name should be easy to see among the marquee, and store hours should stand out enough for someone giving a quick glance to know whether the establishment is open right at that moment or not.  All of this should be clear with a single look as someone walks or drives past.

It’s not Just About the Street

Parking areas are just as important as the signs themselves.  If possible, provide enough parking for your projected business model.  Make sure all parking areas are clear of debris and holes that can damage cars or feet.  Ideally, spaces should be marked with weatherproof paint.  If parking is communal, then point your customers to the nearest parking lot.  When your customers draw close to your door, you should consider their needs for the store entrance.  Mark the way the doors swing on both sides of the doorway and clearly point out handicap accessibility.  Importantly, make sure that any signs saying whether your store is currently open or not are turned on or turned to “Open”.  Turning a customer away at the last minute is painful when you worked so hard to draw that person’s attention.
