It’s a Plaid, Plaid World – iQ Credit Union’s Gets Decked Out

By | Parking Signs, Rebranding Signs, Wild Card

One of our favorite things at SGS is finding out what the new quarterly campaign theme is going to be for iQ Credit Union. They always bring us their amazing ideas and we have a blast bringing them to life. Then we went plaid!

It was simple really, instead of “putting a bird on it” we’d just being going mad for plaid. The mighty signmakers of SGS really got to flex their vinyl skills when it came to all the wrapping. What did we wrap? Bikes! Barrows! A swag wagon! A car!

The team certainly leveled up on reassembling bikes…

 Ready to roll out!  Ready to roll out!

The print was an extra challenge because the lines meant it needed a precise application or it would look crooked. But this didn’t thwart SGS and the cruisers and wheel barrows left with a flawless finish and perfectly plaid. The bikes were in various branches throughout the Vancouver area and members could enter to win them.

The biggest piece in the campaign was the swag wagon. The wagon, formerly a plain delivery truck, was upgraded with the plaid print and the iQ logo. It certainly fits in the northwest and will catch eyes when its out in the community. Even better, if iQ decides the wagon needs to be changed up – the wrap can be removed and we can give it a totally new look.

 Seek the UniQue!  Seek the UniQue!

In going plaid, we met Woodchuck Norris. Chuck was featured on parking signs and giant A-frame signs as well. And, he’s even got his best flannel on to coordinate with the campaign.

 Just your friendly, neighborhood woodchuck to welcome you!  Just your friendly, neighborhood woodchuck to welcome you!

iQ even carried the plaid over to their website. The homepage featured members in red plaid to tie the whole promotion together. They took a simple idea and applied it in many different ways to make an impact. iQ shows that an impactful campaign doesn’t need to be some massive and elaborate idea. Just a straightforward element like plaid can be twisted and can be used so you get noticed.

Don’t You Want a Sign Company Where Everyone Knows Your Name?

By | Point of Purchase Signs | No Comments

Choosing a service provider or store you’re familiar with is always a good idea. To illustrate our point, let’s talk about your hair. Chances are you have someone who regularly clips, styles, or shaves your hair. Why do you keep going back to the same person? In all likelihood, you have developed a relationship with them: they know exactly what you want, and you trust them not to accidentally give you a mohawk.

Now, the same goes for other businesses you frequent. Once you develop that bond, it makes future interactions easier and less stressful. iQ Credit Union, living up to their name, recognized that we always seem to be on the same wavelength, so they continue to trust us not to give them an unwanted mohawk…and to supply them with point of purchase signs Vancouver WA pays attention to.

iQCU Is Everywhere!

As you traveling around Vancouver, you‘ve likely come across some of iQ Credit Union’s branches. They have twelve of them throughout town. This year, they celebrate their 75th year of intelligent banking. They were originally created to assist teachers in saving and borrowing money. These days, they are open to everyone. Their commitment to educators and emphasis on financial smarts are the inspiration for their name.

We have developed a great relationship with iQCU based on our mutual love of puns (evidenced by all the marketing materials we have produced for them) and our ability to produce great signage for them every time.

You Only Need One Sign Shop

Each quarter, iQCU rolls out a new marketing campaign. In the past, they have hired us to help with

  • Save a Latte – featuring iQ branded coffee mugs
  • Crab a Great Rate – a summer theme that included graphics on sand pails
  • Doggone Low Rates – including vinyl paw prints all over the floors and counters

No Mohawk, Just Great Promotional Products!

iQCU’s latest campaign to celebrate their 75th anniversary is “Legendary Loan Rates” and what better mascot than the Pacific Northwest’s very own Sasquatch to promote it! As with previous projects, we used the iQ marketing team’s stellar designs and printed up teller signs, floor graphics, posters, deal plates, and more using our wide format digital printer.

The posters were printed on Intellicoat GF Photo paper with a luster finish. To get the perfect colors to match the marketing team’s color targets, we used the Eye1 color matching system.

For this campaign, we also produced special 75th anniversary dimensional badges that were custom-routed from 3mm PVC and feature full color laminated print faces.

In the end, iQCU was satisfied with another job done well. And, their members enjoyed the graphics marketing the newest promotion.
