Door graphics are easy to install also.

You can buy pre made door graphics at several locations like Lowes, Hiome Depot, Walmart, craft shops and of course sign shops.  If the door graphics are complex, a sign shop is the perfect place to go.  Sometimes, the already made graphi letters you buy in the kit are insufficient.  A sign shop will not charge much money for the making of the vinyl letters because it is not an expensive procedure.

The installation of door graphics is also an easy process.  The main idea is to be able to line up your graphics both vertically and horizontally so that they are straight when you apply them to your door or window.  Once you know the door graphics are straight, its just a matter of applying the graphics with some soap and water and squeezing out the excess  moisture so that the vinyl adheres properly.  The soap and water allow you to move your vinyl graphics slippery so that you can adjust them in case you place them on wrong.

Furniture stores in the Las Vegas area are constantly advertising their stores specials on their windows.  These storefront window graphics point out the bedroom sets on sale, the couch and loveseat on special, or dining room tables on sale.  The stores merely use different color vinyl’s  to spell out the stores goods that are on sale.

The installing of store window graphics  is a very easy process.  The key is making sure the graphics are straight and aligned properly.  This is done by measuring the glass and installing the vinyl text in the center of the window.  Be sure to measure for both vertical and horizontal accuracy.

The second key to success of installing storefront window graphics is to apply the graphics to a clean glass surface to make sure of proper adherence. The use of soap and water will allow for a slippery surface for th graphics in case you need to adjust the graphics if they are accidently placed on crooked.  I use kitchen soap and water for this purpose.

All vehicles have windows to see out of. Window graphics will allow for you to decorate those windows.  Those windows graphics can be just for art or for business purposes.

We have all seen trucks with NFL teams logos on the back windows.  The Los Angeles Raiders have hardcore fans that display the Raiders logo in their traditional black and white logo.  On other trucks, we have seen ” This truck insured by Smith & Wesson “.  These are all vinyl letters that make up the category of window graphics.  Taxi drivers put their car numbers, telephone numbers and license numbers on windows according to local laws.

Las Vegas Banners

Outdoor Banners

Outdoor banners area a  great way of advertising an event, goods, or services to the general public.  They are easy to put up and very easy to take down.

Outdoor banners are usually  printed on a vinyl material.  The vinyl material is rated by the heaviness of the material, or in ounces.  The standard of the industry for banner material is the 13oz banner material.  The material weight rises from there into the 20 ounce range.  Lower than 10 ounce banner weight is really designed for indoor use and it is not able to withstand the forces of mother nature.

Outdoor banners can be made in a variety of ways.  They can have wind slits cut into them to allow for the passage of wind, grommets punched into them for easy hanging, or have pockets sewed into them so that you can put a pole in the pockets to help display the outdoor banners.  Outdoor banners can also be hemmed to reinforce the outer edges so that they withstand greater force of nature.  The usual method for hemming the banners is with double sided tape or being sewn.

Outdoor banners can deliver a variety of messages such as advertising a company picnic, a sporting event, a rock concert, etc. etc.  The whole idea of the outdoor banner is to have people be able too see it and advertise whatever  message you are trying to convey.

Common outdoor banners include the sizes of 3 foot by 8foot, 3foot by 5 foot and larger sizes such as 5feet by 10 feet.  In LAs Vegas, where I live, casinos have banners running down the sides of the casinos to advertise their shows and specials.  These banners run several hundred feet in length. The banners can be joined together to make it look very wide as well as long.

Outdoor banners are a great way to advertise your event or service. They are easy to make and are a cheap form of delivering a message.

 

 

Las Vegas Vehicle Magnets

Car Magnets Are Cheap Advertising

Car magnets are a very simple and cheap form of advertising in Las Vegas.  Everyday on the way to work and on my way home, I see vehicles driving down the street with magnets on their doors displaying where that person works or what goods and services they sell.

The car magnets display a very simple message to hundres of cars a day to the motorists that are driving next to them.  The car magnets are very easy to put on and remove from a car.  They can easily be transferable to other vehicles.

Car magnets are very inexpensive and can be easily made to your business specifications.  The standard car magnet size is 12 inches in height by 18 inches in length.  Many more car magnet sizes are available to match up to the vehicle you are driving.  One of the key elements of having car magnets is not to get them too big.  People naturally want to advertise in the largest format they can, but when your car magnet has to go over a body molding or a body line, sometimes a air pocket is made.  This air pocket allows for wind to get between the car body and the car magnet and cause the wind to make the car magnet fly off the vehicle, especially at high speeds. The higher the speed the more velocity the wind has to make the magnet not adhere properly.

The price of car magnets is relatively cheap.  A pair of 12 inch by 18 inches cost around $30.00.  The design fee is included in this price and the magnets are in full color.  That means you can have as many colors as you want on you car magnets.

It is important to remember to keep your message simple on a car magnet since there generally is a small window of opportunity to have a fellow motorist read your sign while they are driving or waiting at a intersection.

Eco solvent inks or latex inks are best suited for longer life in outdoor environments where they are subject to daily exposure to the suns daily rays.

Vinyl banners can also be printed on different types of vinyl material to give them additional strength.  For example, vinyl material can come in 8 ounce all the way to 20 ounce material.  The higher the weight of the vinyl, the tougher the material.  For example, a 8 ounce banner material may be great for a birthday banner that will only be displayed for a few days, but a much heavier banner material, lets say 18 ounce, for a banner that will be hung outdoors for more than a year.

Vinyl banners are easy to hang and easy to take down.  The banners usually come grommeted every 2 feet with a brass grommet, which allows for the end user to use a screw and washer or rope to hang the banner.  The vinyl banner also allows for the business to change their message every so often to make sure their message does no get stale.  Several businesses rotate their banners in order to give their store a fresh appearance that appears to be always changing.
