Have you ever heard of the term “hang out a shingle”? It has become synonymous with starting a new business. Presumably, it got its origins because one could conceivably just put a little sign out front of their home or brick-and-mortar establishment and business would flood in. Sounds a little far-fetched, doesn’t it?
These days, all the shingles in the world will put a roof over your head, but you need more than that to get clients to knock on your door. In fact, clients should be able to just walk in without knocking, but that’s for a different blog. Today, we’re going to explore the best new business signs for Vancouver, WA.
What’s the first thing customers see when they enter your place of business? Is it someone’s eyes peeking over a tall counter? Is it rows upon rows of chairs? Is it a “Caution Wet Floor” sign? None of these are all that helpful. If you want to impress consumers, let them know they have found the right place, and build your new brand, you need reception area signs. We have these in a variety of flavors, including metal, acrylic, PVC, and sign foam. We don’t recommend eating them, though.
There are a lot of things that window graphics and lettering can do for your storefront. With the right graphics, you can actually enter consumers’ minds and influence their buying decisions. You might expect to spend millions of dollars on this type of technology, and we wouldn’t stop you, but you can really achieve this effect for much less. Window graphics are excellent for highlighting photos of your best-selling products and services. You can also publicize your grand opening date and special sales.
If you run a restaurant where patrons come up to the counter to order, you can save a lot of time and trouble by having a large, easy-to-read menu board above head-level behind your counter. This is also helpful in other service-oriented establishments, such as hair salons, spas, and even repair shops. We recommend grouping your items into intuitive groups. For example, a Mexican restaurant would have burritos in one section, tacos in another, and beverages elsewhere. We can even incorporate images of your top items.
Flags and Banners
Once you sign that lease, we recommend you immediately head over to our shop on Northeast 13th Avenue to get a flag or banner announcing that you’re coming soon to your new location. Don’t worry if you don’t have a grand opening date set yet. When you do have that date, you can always bring your banner or flag back to us, and we’ll update it with your grand opening information. In the meantime, you can get a buzz going about your enterprise.
With these markers, you’ll be well on your way to building up a sustainable clientele at an affordable price. Are you unsure about what you need for your new venue? Are you feeling a little bit overwhelmed? Let the mighty sign makers at Specialty Graphic Solutions take care of the stress of finding signs for new businesses in Vancouver, WA.
