Fall Fair Banners & Table Throws

If you live in London, Ontario, you likely have visited the Western Fair Grounds at one time or another, when you have walked past the many different vendors pedaling their wares or spreading news of their cause.

Otherwise, perhaps you have ventured out through Ribfest or Sunfest at Victoria Park in the summers and seen the same.

Have you ever wondered where they get those banners and table throws?

BABY AND EVENT 002-1Look no further than GlobalSigns.ca to help you out in a pinch regarding your festival and fair displays.

We offer all manner of bannerstands, banner hangs, satin table throws and the like that will help you to get your message across and make a good impression on the passerby.

There are many factors to consider for grabbing attention fast and keeping it.

You want to employ as few words as possible, as especially in today’s modern age, people’s focus spans are short.

You want to have a bright, catchy logo that sums up your business–and have as many hi res pictures incorporated into your layout as possible.

We recently did a 2 ft by 12 ft double sided hem and rope banner for the Canadian Forces, a long with a bannerstand for them.

These are the standard baseline media you need to consider–then you may build up your advertising arsenal from there.

How about a podium?  Perhaps some table-top displays.  Do you have cards and brochures yet?  We supply those as well.

We are here to round out your branding portfolio at economic rates with professional execution.  Talk to us today: Info@GlobalSigns.ca

Arena / Rink Banners

We fabricate arena banners, incorporating pole pockets into a top and bottom hem, in order to be hung by rods and easily interchangeable.  Currently we supply Ilderton and Komoka arenas with this type of design.  These arenas sell advertising to local clients who then come to us for layouts and production.  The arena then picks up the banner once completed and installs it for the customer.

bannerTypically with arena banners, since viewers may be reading from clear across the facility, you want to ensure that your copy is as large a possible.  Generally 5 inch letters should be an absolute minimum.  Graphics should also be maximized for high contrast and vibrant or memorable impressions.  If you have a website that contains all of your contact information, consider only displaying that website alone.  People cannot retain too much info in a short time span, so your goal is to have a catchy message that will linger in their minds.

Rink banners are an effective way to utilize your arena’s wall space, provide a venue for local advertisers to reach their immediate target audience more efficiently–and bring in some extra revenue for the facility.  Please contact us today to discuss discount rates for exclusive banner production at your rink.  We also will quote on rink board advertising and other modes of media in a package deal.

 

 

 

 

New Year, New Truck … New Truck Lettering!

Truck LetteringWhether you are trading in your vehicle or purchasing a new one outright for your fleet, be sure to employ the best for suiting it up with new lettering and logo decals.

We offer turnaround service and very competitive quality, speed and rates.

If you simply want vinyl cut lettering along the sides and rear, or something more sophisticated with full color graphics and the like, we are here to serve your needs.  Simply e-mail us at Info@GlobalSigns.ca to begin the process of quote, design and installation.

We will need proper measurements from your vehicle in order to prepare the graphics in advance, so if you are in the Hyde Park neighbourhood, feel free to stop in so we can determine the appropriate sizing for your lettering and turn back a quote to you the next day.

Then it is simply a matter of fine-tuning the layout until we have your vehicle branding looking the way you want it.  Once that has been accomplished, then we can set up a day and time, dependent upon the weather, in order to finalize your fresh fleet flourishes.

We may choose to laminate your decals with UV protectant for longevity, add trim and striping–and many other details which will be outlined for you in your options package.

We letter and decal vehicles of all sizes, from car to truck to cargo van and long haul.

If you cannot make it in to our shop for initial measurements, feel free to send us pictures and general measurements via e-mail in order to obtain a preliminary estimate to determine if we will be meeting your budget and an installation is likely to be green-lighted.

Truck lettering is the fastest most effective means of gaining new business as it generates millions of customer impressions every year simply by sitting and driving in traffic or leaving your vehicle parked in a high visibility location outside your business.

The passive advertising that is also mobile is unmatched in its ability to push your business to the next level at the most affordable cost possible.

A-Frame Sandwich Boards

20130404102724

Every storefront needs some portable display to set out day by day or leave out, as needed.  Two foot by three foot is the maximum size allowed for London, Ontario businesses, but you may get away with bigger sizes in more remote areas, set back on your property a distance–perhaps chained to a post for the day or weekend, so the City does not steal your signage.

These signs need as few words as possible, with as much bright, colorful, eye-catching imagery you can muster to stop traffic and swing your clientele in to visit you.  Perhaps they drive by your place everyday, always needed your product–but never knew you handled it.  Perhaps they have been trying to find you for months, but kept going in circles until they say you setting that board out.  However you slice it, setting out an A-frame will improve business.

Our standard frames are made of powder coated steel, with two sides for inserts.  You may opt for the second side depending on your budget or skip it if your board is always going to be facing the road, not facing both ways.  If your logos are suitable for printing and you just need us to do the layouts for you, a typical 2 sided sandwich board would cost $250 + tax, depending on how many proofs are required.  Discount quantities apply above one unit.

If you wish the frame to last your lifetime and never rust–or you plan on setting it in a high moisture environment–then you may opt for stainless steel frames which cost more but will endure.  These frames also come with clear protective covers on either side, to further lengthen longevity.

If you still do not have an A-frame for your business, please consult us today so we can get this advertising method jump started: Info@GlobalSigns.ca

Car & Truck Vinyl Wraps

dsweb

Vehicle wraps around the world garner billions of impressions from people in traffic and on the street every year.

A car or truck graphic grabs attention fast and becomes your company’s personal traveling billboard.  Then when you leave it parked in front of your shop, it continues to advertize, without the need for bylaw permits and the like.

Without wrapping your fleet, you will be hamstrung to get a roll on the vehicular billboard business.  You would be better off allowing a non-competitor to advertize their own ware on your fleet, for a monthly fee, rather than doing nothing with your wheels at all.

But of course the best thing for your business will be to immediately begin designing your wrap and getting it under production at your preferred print and install shop.

There are economical and expensive approaches to getting graphics splashed on your fleet, which range not just from lesser to greater square foot coverage, but also from the type of vinyl used–and whether or not you have your own designer.

Generally, here at Global Signs, we would prefer to see you maximize the space on your vehicle, so we will go to every length to ensure your wrap meets your budget, but remains impactful and does not sacrifice strength for saving a few bucks.  Imagine going to the ballet without a tux on.  That is how you appear everyday you drive about town without your brand emblazoned big.

We can also keep the cost down by not laminating the vinyl or using 2mil in more strips than broad strokes.  If you have designs please email them to info@GlobalSigns.ca for inspection or  you may upload them to our site.  We accept most files from .pdf, .ai, .tiff, .jpeg, .cdr and more.

Think about what you want people to know first about your business and keep it down to very few words.  Remember, your customers only have a few seconds as they zip by you in traffic to see and later recall your brand, unless they are sitting behind you at a red light.  Keep your most lengthy info on the back of your car for this reason, so they may check your website from their phone as they sit there and perhaps even call you directly to order a new product.

Wraps should have big photos or colorful graphics that are writ large and bleed off the contours and sides of the vehicle.  Names and numbers will be kept to the center or well away from the edges, either added after as cut vinyl or included in the original print.

If you need our design services or would like to see a quick mock-up of some creatives before making your decision, please contact us and we will accommodate.  Ideally, send us pictures of your vehicle with some rough measurements or at least provide us with the make and year of each in your fleet you would like quotes on.

From design to production to installation, timelines can be met, whether tight or open-ended.  The quicker the service the cost goes up a bit, however, so if you plan well in advance, giving us time to prepare, then that will save you some money as well.  But in the end, just remember, that it is signs and particularly autowraps that pay you back in the end through the rich returns of customer markets properly capitalized upon.

 

Sticker Printing

coexist-bumper-sticker

Global Signs offers sticker printing of all variety, color, quantity, shape and sizes. Get your decals done with us and enjoy the benefit of high quality Mutoh prints with low cost affordability and design assistance if you require it.

Some customers have their logo file already but would like to add some text or tweak a certain aspect of that design and we are quick to meet these needs. Simply send our graphic designer the file and it will be returned to you for proofing with the changes.

Stickers can be printed on all manner of different vinyls, from removable, laminated, to perforated, to air release, matte or glossy and more. Let us know what your application is and we will be glad to inform you of the price and best vinyl for the job at hand.

Some use stickers as bumper stickers, car decals–or bedroom wall adornment. Some use stickers to add a splash to their otherwise drab interchangeable letter mobile sign–while others use stickers to update their billboards with new information.

Some use stickers to spruce up old model cars–while others use them to hand out as a merchandising gimmick. We can do high-run orders of sticker prints, contour cut out to the exact shape of decal you are after–leaving you merely to peel and apply.

Stickers can be solid colors or full color gradients–whichever you prefer. Stickers and large decals come as usual with a wax backing to protect the sticky layer before application. If you opt for the air release vinyl, you will have any easier time applying the sticker without leaving bubbles behind. If you pick the removable vinyl, it will be a bit easier to remove down the road.

When applying the stickers, if they are small you can get away with dry mounting them–but the larger decals, even the ones with air release channels, may require some soapy water for application just to ensure you get a smooth flat lay without any bubbles.

If you need someone to design your stickers for you, please contact us (info@GlobalSigns.ca) and we will return your inquiry promptly. We love printing stickers for all your needs and look forward to meeting you and producing decals for you soon.

Billboard Decals

kleine-verbrechen

Whether you are looking to reface your entire existing billboard with a giant decal or just update some information on it with a smaller sticker, we can accommodate your needs.

You can either choose to install the decal yourself or have us do it for you.

The best way to move forward with acquiring your new sticker is to send us a picture of the billboard with the dimensions of the addition you are looking into getting printed.

We will send you a proof of what it would look like and a quote for the print.

Billboards are an excellent means of garnering attention to your business, but wording should be kept to a minimum as drivers have only a few seconds to remember what they are seeing. Pictures and photos are also a good way of making an impression quickly that will stick in the person’s mind. Send us any high resolution photos or logo files that you have if you wish to incorporate imagery into your sticker.

Our decals come printed on digital air release vinyl for easier application. The channels of air embedded in the print allow for you to reposition the sticker before finally firmly pressing it down, especially if you use a little soapy water to aid the process. Clean the surface of the billboard and then spray the face where you are making the addition with clean water. Next, unroll the giant sticker face down on the board. Next, peel away the wax backing and spray the exposed sticky side with soapy water. Finally, with the help of a few extra hands, flip the sticker over and position it how you want it. Finally, use a hard edge wrapped with paper towel to push the decal down into place permanently. Swipe from the center out, up and down and side to side, then finally pushing out all the remaining soapy water in consecutive, overlapping swipes until the image is secured. Now you have your refaced billboard complete.

You may email us your files at info@globalsigns.ca or upload them to our homepage. There is an upload function on the right hand side. Simply click on the global and arrow that say upload then select your files. Finally email us to confirm we have received it.
