Consumers Flip Over These Sidewalk and Yard Signs in Vancouver!

By | A-Frame Signs, Sidewalk Signs, Yard Signs | No Comments

Have you ever walked down the sidewalk with your head delightfully in the clouds when you were jolted back to reality with a Dick Van Dyke-like trip over something in your path? Welcome to the power of sidewalk signs!

Have you ever played a little front-yard football only to have your buddy tell you to go deep into the yard of the empty house next door? You may have run into a “For Sale” yard sign in this instance. Both sidewalk signs and yard signs in Vancouver, WA are valued for their ability to forcefully enter the consciousness of those who pass by. Today, we’re going to examine these markers a little more closely and see how they might be used to promote your business.

Walk the Walk with Sidewalk Signs

The most popular type of sidewalk sign is the A-frame. It gets its name because it resembles the letter A when you look at it from the side. Both the front and back of the marker can feature you unique message. There are a few different types of A-frame signs:

Classic Permanent Sign – These markers feature your information rendered on a vinyl adhesive film on each face of the A-frame. We recommend using these signs if you have a message you need to get across that won’t change anytime soon. For example, you might use permanent A-frame signs to point the way to overflow parking or to simply let people know you’re currently open.

Sign Inserts – Other A-frames take inserts. We can print these out and make them all professional looking for you. Or, you may want to print your own on your office printer. This option is best if you have seasonal sales you want to promote.

Whiteboards or Blackboards – If you run a restaurant or bar with daily specials, you’ll want to update your A-frame sidewalk sign on a daily basis. Chalkboards and whiteboards are ideal for these purposes. We can hook you up with a variety of chalk and marker colors.

Turn Yards into Marketing Tools

Yard signs are used by businesses in an array of industries. You’re probably most familiar with the ones used to advertise houses for sale or rent. However, contractors also rely on yard signs to take credit for their work. Let’s say you’re a landscaper who’s proud of a particular job. You can typically get approval from the homeowner to temporarily display a yard sign with your name and contact information. This will let neighbors and everyone else know where they can go to get pristine landscaping work done.

Yard signs are great because you can get exaggeratingly millions of signs at a reasonable price. This allows you to blanket Vancouver with your message at a fraction of the cost of a TV ad. Plus, you’ll reach people where they least expect to be found! This why these markers are sometimes referred to as “bandit signs.”

Drinkers Drawn Into The Thirsty Sasquatch with Window Graphics & Sandwich Board Sign!

By | Retail Signs, Windows and Doors | No Comments

A big hairy beast comes out of the mist. He has spent a long day toiling in the forests of the Pacific Northwest lugging around his massive feet and trying to avoid being seen, but now, he’s in need of libations. Which bar should he choose? The Thirsty Sasquatch recognized the need to advertise their business to parched consumers, so they called in the friendly and mighty sign makers of Specialty Graphic Solutions for sidewalk signs for Vancouver, WA.

What Do Thirsty Sasquatches Drink?

If the offerings at the The Thirsty Sasquatch are any indication, sasquatches have a diverse palate that includes local craft beers, small batch spirits, wine, ciders, root beer, and kombucha. Located on Main Street in Vancouver, they focus on procuring the best as well as hardest to find and most unique skillfully crafted beverages. In short – they revel in celebrating potent potables.

When such a fun new business came to us for signs Vancouver WA brew fans would notice, our mighty sign makers got right down to work. The Thirsty Sasquatch needed a sidewalk sign to attract foot traffic as well as window graphics that would help build their brand and let dehydrated Washingtonians know they’ve found the right place.

We Provided Them with Our Legendary Service

For the sidewalk sign, we used a simple two-sided A-frame construction. The Thirsty Sasquatch already had a logo, so we simply incorporated it along with the typeface into the signage. We used a simple black and white print for maximum contrast.

For the bar window graphics for Vancouver, WA, we used frosted cut vinyl to create the logo again. This gives the appearance that The Thirsty Sasquatch shelled out big money to have a professional etch their logo into the glass, but you and we know that this isn’t true. It can be our little secret. Finally, we professionally installed the vinyl in time for happy hour. The client was completely satisfied!

“I Want Sidewalk Signs!”

Do you own or manage a business that’s in an area that gets a lot of foot traffic? If so, why not put your marketing materials and branding in a spot where consumers will literally have to go out of their way to avoid it?

The classic sidewalk sign, or A-frame, is a favorite option for bars and restaurants alike. They can be used to let hungry folks know what great deals you have to offer, advertise the freshest menu options of the day, and showcase seasonal specialties, such as summer ales! You might also want to let people know about the latest wine and food pairings, the soup of the day, and happy hour specials. The possibilities are virtually limitless. SGS supplies A-frames that take inserts, dry erase boards, or even old fashioned chalk boards.

If you’re ready to attract new customers to your bar, restaurant, bistro, café, or dining room, whether they’re mythical or not, contact us today for a free quote and consultation on signage.
