Opening up a new storefront without the right signage is worse than walking around town naked. At least when you’re walking around naked, you catch people’s attention. When your storefront doesn’t have signage, no one will notice you. Sure, you could “keep Portland weird” and just have naked people stand in front of your store, or you could get ahead of the ball and have vibrant, full-color signs. Manolo Walls chose the option that would attract the right kind of attention and contacted Specialty Graphic Solutions for new business signs and graphics in Portland, OR.
Manolo Walls? Tell Me More
Located on Southeast Gideon in Portland, Manolo Walls is the gloriously designed brainchild of Nelli Pavlenko. With more than a decade of experience in the home décor and home improvement industry, she has worked side-by-side with design professionals and homeowners to produce beautiful results for her clients. Some of the custom wall coverings she offers are wallpaper, 3D wall flats, acoustic panels, ceiling tiles, and much more.
When a business that’s keeping area homes looking their best came to us for new business signs and graphics for Portland, OR, we were more than willing to help. Manolo Walls had recently moved into a new location and Nelli needed a whole host of signs for the new place. Fortunately, she called the mighty sign makers at SGS for help.
What We Did for Manolo Walls
Nelli wanted to make her new venue shine with exterior branding. So, that’s exactly what we did. For the windows, we used vinyl graphics featuring a full-color laminated print logo and their phone number and website information. These were installed on the exterior of the glass entrance door.
Next, we created a building sign with the Manolo logo. The panel is three feet by three feet and three millimeters thick. It’s an aluminum composite Alupanel with laminated digital print. We affixed the panel directly to the building wall. This was a simple way to brand the business without breaking the bank.
We installed all of the new signage for Nelli. In fact, we did it all ahead of schedule. Now, customers can easily find the store, and she’s building her brand by using her unique logo and not just some cut vinyl wording on her door. Nelli was completely satisfied with her new signs. She even sent us the following note: “Thank you! The signs look amazing!”
