Opening a new business is a lot of work. You have to secure the proper licenses, hire employees, buy equipment, rent a venue, pay off the mob, and have plenty of product. In the rush to open their doors to the public, many organizations forget about their signage. These companies don’t last long. Postal Connections understood the importance of having the right signage, so they contacted the mighty sign makers at Specialty Graphic Solutions for new business signs in Hazel Dell, WA.
Postal Connections Does More than Just Snail Mail
Busy individuals and small businesses turn to Postal Connections for all of their “back office” needs. They essentially serve as their clients’ packer and shipper, personal mailroom, outpost for passport photos, photocopy department, communications center, gift shop, and more. They take care of everything from notarizing documents to receiving personal business faxes. Across the United States, they have dozens of storefronts. The one near us is in Hazel Dell on 78th Street at Highway 99.
When a company that does such a great job of helping out local households and enterprises came to us for new location signs for Hazel Dell, WA, we were more than happy to help. As discussed in our last blog, we produced a halo-lit logo sign for Postal Connections. Even before the logo sign, though, owners Adrienne Boynton and Tom McNabb (her father) had both worked with us in their other endeavors. They knew they could count on us to deliver. We didn’t disappoint!
How We Helped Postal Connections
Adrienne and Tom needed a way to get noticed in their new location. After listening closely to their goals and vision for the project, we came up with a number of recommendations that would fit their budget and help them brand. Below is a bulleted list of what we decided on:
- Window Graphics – To advertise their services and hours on their nice, large storefront windows, we provided them with both print and cut vinyl window graphics.
- Loading Zone Signs – To save prime parking spots for their customers with packages to pick up or drop off, we supplied Postal Connections with loading zone signs. These consisted of laminated digital prints on .063 aluminum sign blanks.
- Custom Pricing Signs – This part of the project was pretty neat. Tom has many years of experience in the construction industry, so he built a new custom countertop with a really cool blue/black marble patterned laminate. He then made four matching custom price signs with the same laminate face. We then created the vinyl graphics to go on the face of those signs.
- Swooper Flags – Finally, we provided them with twelve-foot tall double-sided Swooper flags to promote their services to all of the traffic driving by their prime location.
In the end, Adrienne and Tom were completely satisfied with the work we did. The new clients are streaming in!
