Vinyl Wrapped Columns Advertise for Pendleton at Portland International Airport

By | Point of Purchase Signs, Retail Signs, Wild Card | No Comments

Even with the best instructions possible, the easiest graphics installation job can be a hassle. Without the right tools and experience, you’ll be lucky if you just have air bubbles and creases. Most of the time, the graphics will just look off. Pendleton Woolen Mills needed an expert touch, so they contacted Specialty Graphic Solutions for vinyl column wraps for retail stores in airports.

A Little Info on Pendleton Woolen Mills and Portland International Airport

Headquartered on Pendleton Way in Washougal, Pendleton Woolen Mills has been a family-owned business for 150 years. The intricate patterns of their world-class woolen blankets are inspired by Native American legends and designs. They produce luxurious, lightweight 100% pure virgin wool clothing. These days, their products are available in department stores, Pendleton stores, and traditional specialty stores in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, Korea, and Japan.

The Portland International Airport (PDX) is a local celebrity in its own right.  Ranked as America’s Best Airport by Travel & Leisure magazine for the past four years, PDX offers great food and retail options for busy travelers – including an impressive Pendleton store.

What We Did for Pendleton at PDX

When Pendleton approached us for help with vinyl column wraps at PDX our installation crew took flight to offer a hand. You see, the best-laid plans of mice and retailers often go awry. The marketing team at Pendleton wanted to implement a creative marketing campaign at PDX, where they have a retail store.

The Plan: Wrap several large pillars in the main retail area of the airport’s departure level with graphics that showed their iconic 100% wool blankets around trees.

The Problem: Installation of several of the column wraps went off without a hitch. But, they were having trouble with two of them. Since the installation wasn’t going as well as hoped, we found out on a Monday afternoon that they needed someone to install the new graphics that night since the number of travelers is smaller at night.

The Solution: Call in the mighty sign makers at SGS! Our super power is making our customers happy! Taylor and Jason arrived at PDX at 7 pm, and by 11 pm, everything was up on the pillars and looking outstanding!

The Problem 2: Electric Boogaloo: The next day (Tuesday for those of you keeping score at home), Pendleton needed us again. One of the wraps installed by another team wasn’t quite right. It needed to be reprinted and installed immediately.

The Solution 2: The New Batch: To ensure all of the columns would match, we tracked down the materials used by the other printer. One of our super suppliers overnighted the materials to us from the Bay Area. We then printed the new graphics, removed the old piece, and installed the repair piece in record time.

In the end, the client was completely satisfied with their installation and an effective marketing campaign that’s already showing outstanding results.

Do You Have These Retail Store Signs in Portland?

By | A-Frame Signs, Banners, Point of Purchase Signs, Sidewalk Signs | No Comments

There are stores and restaurants in Portland that don’t have any identifying markings. They instead rely on word-of-mouth and online publicity. And, even then, they need to have extraordinary products and services to keep people coming back. This might work if you’re trying to market to hipsters, but these enterprises are the exception rather than the rule because they’re essentially missing out on attracting foot traffic and building their brand in favor of creating a mystique that generally fades in time.

On the other hand, you stand out in a crowded marketplace when you put retail store signs in Portland, Oregon to work for you. Fortunately, Specialty Graphic Solutions has markers that will attract your target audience, even if it’s hipsters.

A-Frame Sidewalk Signs

A-frame sidewalk signs are the land mines in retail war. They’re what you’re trying to get consumers to run into and take notice of. We recommend putting these in any areas that get a lot of foot traffic. These signs are ideal for displaying your store’s name, logo, and colors to boost your brand awareness. You can also use them to list your products and services. Bars and restaurants use these signs to promote their daily specials.

Swooper Flags

Swooper flags are great for catching the eye and bringing attention to your storefront. The wind from passing cars or the many Pacific Northwest storms keep your message flapping. And, the flags can be quite tall, so they’re visible from great distances. Swooper flags are the perfect way to promote annual sales events. And, we can provide you with a number of different fabric flags to install on the tip-proof post. For instance, when it is near the holiday season, one of our clients likes to use a flag to promote their gift wrapping services.

Exterior Hanging Banners

From the moment the ink dries on your lease, you can start putting hanging banners to work for you. In fact, you don’t even have to wait for the ink to dry. Just have your “Coming Soon” banner with your custom branding ready to display at your venue before you even go to fill out the paperwork! And, down the road, we can update your banner with specifics, like your grand opening date. Hanging banners are also useful for promoting your secondary services, such as online sales, catering, or chainsaw juggling.

Menu Board Signs

The word “menu” is forever associated with food. And, menu board signs are a popular solution for restaurants, but dining establishments aren’t the only ones benefitting from these markers. Hair and nail salons use menu boards to list their services and prices. One of our clients offers mail room services, and they make great use of menu boards to list what they can do along with how much they charge. And, as prices change, we can sneak in like ninjas and update the signage.

If you’re finding that your sign-free business plan is no longer attracting the clientele you’re seeking, contact the mighty sign makers at SGS for judgement-free help outfitting your venue with essential retail store signs in Portland, Oregon.

Retail Stores Signs in Portland: When Only the Best Will Do!

By | Point of Purchase Signs, Retail Signs | No Comments

There are a lot of ways to get people to come to your store. You can advertise your products at ridiculously low prices then have a large alligator guarding the items so you don’t have to sell them at a loss. You could convince the local election board to make your store a polling location. Or, you could just have Specialty Graphic Solutions create sweet exterior signs for you.

Anyway, we’re not here to talk to you about ways to get people into your store. Today, we’re going to show you how to get people to flash their plastic once they’re inside your shop by examining the ABCs (“always be closing!”) of retail store signs in Portland, Oregon.

Wall Graphics

We’re getting an increasing number of calls from retailers looking for vinyl wall graphics. This is because they can be used for just about anything. Digitally printed wallpaper is the ideal way to change your interior décor since it’s faster, more affordable, and less stinky than painting. Showcase people enjoying your products with wall murals. Or, point the way to bestsellers and sales items with wayfinding wall decals.

Point of Purchase Graphics

When we’re given longer to think about buying something, we sometimes talk ourselves out of it. But, in the spur of the moment, we fill our carts with banana slicers and spider catchers. If you’re interested in driving those “spur of the moment” purchases, point of purchase signs are a must. POP markers are also ideal for promoting deals that are only available at your register, like signing up for store credit cards.

Cardboard Cutouts and Banner Stands

Banner stands and cardboard cutouts are both excellent additions to your retail space indoors and out. They help you advertise big promotions. For instance, if you have a “50% off when the Timbers Shutout Their Opponents” deal each season, let people know about it with cutouts and banners that block their walkway!

Posters

You can magically turn shoppers into customers through the power of posters. And, you really put consumers in the buying mood when you combine your efforts with images evocative of seasonal sales or special promotions. These posters can be stuck to a wall or mounted on a stand near the shelves where you stock your specialty products or at registers.

Menu Boards

Menu boards are a fixture in most eateries. They serve several purposes, such as displaying vibrant photos of your top dishes, complementing your interior design, and boosting your brand awareness. We typically group menu items by dish type for easier readability. For example, a Mexican restaurant would have separate sections for burritos and tacos, so diners don’t end up confused by how their tortilla is folded.
