We have spoken in past posts about the use of nylon banners, flags, and signs for the advertising of your business on location. However, it has yet to be discussed how useful these banners and signs can be for stirring excitement on the go. You can have customized vinyl banners made for when you need to promote your company at trade shows, expos, and other business related conventions.
Companies, especially those with clout, are expected to bring their best new material and prototypes for show at conventions. From the amount of hype buzzing before the show to the day of the show, complete with press-oriented panels, your company must have professional banners made for the convention booth. The best way to get the attention you want and have your hard work and dedication reflected is through custom banners that feature the highlights of your convention showcase- that means full color banners with print and pictures describing what consumers should expect from you in the coming season.
Five Boro has experience making custom logo banners for clients in a variety of business fields. They can guarantee your trade show’s banners, signs, and flags will bring positive attention to your business, whether it’s for potential customers, the press, or networking purposes. The banners are made strong and durable, and with full color so you can feature detailed pictures and print about whatever it is you intend to highlight.
As the trees start changing color, the air crisps, and the weather chills, stores begin advertising for their Autumn line-ups. For clothing this means hats, scarves, puffy down vests, and peacoats. For food stores this means caramel-covered treats, apple cinnamon pastries, and deliciously hot beverages that sooth the soul. You know it is the start to a delightful Fall when you see stores like Dunkin Donuts put up the nylon banners featuring their hot apple cider and cinnamon donuts.
The change in seasons is marketing gold. It is the right time to switch the products and services you provide to the things most in demand. All stores can benefit from a shift in their attention. Start placing vinyl banners over the seasonal items you want to garner attention. For store fronts advertise with plastic signs listing percentages off off-seasonal items or early bird specials. People flock to sales of items they can store and use later.
These advertisements have an impact. We may notice when we go into our favorite stores that the shelved inventory has changed, along with the decor, but if we’re looking at a vendor passing by we may miss an opportunity unless it is explicitly stated.
When a new chain store is opening or a new branch of an established brand store, it is important to properly expose its location in preparation for the grand opening. Grand opening banners and applique banners can help make your new location visible. That, along with nylon banners scattered throughout the neighborhood will generate a considerably larger response from potential customers.
Never underestimate the power of advertising. When you see a brand new store, you cannot help but walk towards it. With curiosity piqued consumers are ready to get their wallets out, or at the very least, browse their options and tell their friends how cool they were for finding a new store in a new location first.
You can order grand opening banners in packages. The packages are set-up by the amount of banners, flags, and pennants. On top of an order for grand opening materials you should consider getting a few large vinyl or nylon banners. These will help you garner crowds and put the new location in favor with customers. Five Boro can handle all of these orders for you and have them done with absolute professionalism. They have taken store opening orders in the past and continue to do so with fervor. You can depend on high quality banner and flag making for your new store.
It is definitely an exciting thing getting an addition onto your building. When you open a new wing there is going to be a lot of buzz generating around employees. Expansion is always a good thing for business. You want to keep this talk going before and after the new wing is officially opened. That is why it is important to advertise with big, sturdy nylon banners.
The construction of the site is enough to attract attention but oftentimes people wonder what is actually going on behind the wall. That is why a nylon banner is so useful. It explains to passers-by what they can expect in the coming months. It takes away a little bit of the mystery and the anxiety brought upon by such a business endeavor.
For example, the Hospital for Special Surgery, located on East 70th St by York Ave, is opening a new wing for rehab in the coming months. This hospital is renowned for its innovations in surgery and recovery, and is even a spot for professional sports players suffering injuries. Five Boro is providing them with customized vinyl banners and advertisements for the new wing as a means to help them spotlight it. Patients will now know they get a new facility specialized for their needs and the hospital can prepare for its opening properly.
Royal Ivey, NBA player extraordinaire, started a clinic for youths aged 8 to 13 as means to encourage their basketball skills. It was his way of giving back to the community. But even though Ivey has already done his share giving back to the community his vision isn’t done. He has said in the past that this vision is going to grow. That it’s much bigger. He wants to promote the events held there each year and get more sponsorship for these kids. And, in order to do that he would need proper advertising for his Skills Clinic in Hollis Park.
Custom banners are one way to go. Big print banners can surely help out Royal Ivey get his Clinic the attention it deserves. Aside from the big game, and skill drills, there are workshop events that need attention. This Clinic and the activities and education it provides has garnered the adoration of hundreds of children. Five Boro happily has custom banners for the event so that Ivey’s mission can fully be realized by a larger crowd.
With a professional, you can get pretty much any kind of advertisement printed. Specially made outdoor banners are durable for tough weather and useful during rainy seasons such as this one.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but summertime is dwindling. The weather is cooling off and that means reality is setting in for the college students and recent graduates. Universities and other schools need to promote their different programs and facilities. That’s where lamp post banners and other useful nylon banners come in handy.
See, colleges are just so darn big and spread out that it’s hard to know exactly where everything is or what’s going on without advertisements blatantly staring students in the face. In the city it’s even more complicated because colleges often rent space in different buildings throughout the boroughs. This doesn’t just pertain to programs of study, but also to career development, financial services, and post graduate courses for certifications. It’s a mixed bag of goodies that need proper spotlight. Customized vinyl banners for the sides of buildings can make finding all these locations much, much easier. So, for example, when Touro College’s Career Development Offices get the influx of recent grads applying for jobs and seeking advise, they can thank the professionals at Five Boro Flag, Banner and Sign for their wonderful work this September.
Other great ideas are full color banners and posters for advertising in the boroughs and suburbs. Advertisements are very appealing when you’re on the morning commute and you want somewhere less awkward to look. There’s so much you can do to drum up excitement in students than give them hum-drums over the end of summer.
Okay, so you’re probably sitting there thinking, “Psh, what can you possibly say about this topic that I don’t already know?” It may seem to be a self-evident truth that the main difference between a flag and a banner is that a flag waves, whereas a banner is stationary. However, there is a whole lot of difference when it comes to choosing the most appropriate one for your business.
Flags more commonly represent ideas. They’re used to draw attention to a location and signify the current status of the location. Logo flags and symbol flags are commonly used for sports and businesses. I bet if you rattle off the major chain stores in your head you can get a mental picture of their logo silk screened onto a custom flag. McDonald’s is one prime example. Or, how about Dunkin Donuts? But, if you notice their banners do not look like their flags.
The banners come in quite a different large format. They often feature a special deal or service for a limited time. They will also often have sentences printed on them with details. Nylon banners aren’t all too unlike their nylon flag counterparts. You’ll definitely notice, though, that oftentimes flags are double-sided and banners are not. The finishing is slightly different as well. Banners are great for corporations that need to get info out to wide audiences in multiple locations, such as MTV and Bacardi. You see those banners everywhere.
When you look promotional signs at The Museum of Natural History or Madison Square Garden you don’t see puny little advertisements. You see massive nylon banners hanging from the windows, the ceiling, and building walls. They grab your attention immediately. They’re full color. They’re big and bold and definitely unapologetic in the message they convey. When you want big-time advertisement this is the sort of product you need to be looking for.
A larger than life message needs a larger than life banner to coincide. That’s pure logic. You can get custom made logo banners in 42″x30″, 30″x60″, 42″x72″, and 54″x96″. Whether you are looking to advertise a logo or message, you can send the files over to a professional, like Five Boro, and have the banners made to your specifications. These advertisements are highly effective when you trying to attract large crowds. The services, exhibitions, products, etc. you advertise will visible to passersby. And, with convenient banner ties you’re all set to hang them high.
Let’s return for a moment to Madison Square Garden. The venue is so large you can have several banners hanging. From the inside arena/concert area to the outside perimeter, the venue is decked with large banners advertising upcoming events, sponsors, and deals. And, this form of advertising really works. It’s easier to remember seeing a large banner than an average sized poster. It really gets the job done well.
I will never forget the Optometrist in my neighborhood growing up. I did not wear glasses, nor did I ever even visit him for a check up. My eye site has always been 20/20. Still he made sure to leave an appropriately visual impression on anyone in eye shot.
In his display window (which would have otherwise been a display case for his waiting room) he used window graphics to catch everyone’s eyes. He went all out on holidays and otherwise had elaborate logos and cartoon characters filling every inch of the window. It was impressive and it made me think, “if I ever go to an eye doctor I am pretty sure he is my guy.”
Window graphics are a great way to make the most of the dead space on your store or business’s front. No one wants to walk into a desolate looking place. Window graphics, like the customized vinyl banners made by Five Boro, are just another way to show that you are operating a vibrant and busy establishment. With a sharp and remarkable window display you will be guaranteed to be getting not just attention but retention. You can stand out as THE establishment in your neighborhood. Just like that eye doctor all those years ago.
I remember one of the first things I noticed when applying to colleges and going on tours were the huge custom vinyl banners they had on the campus. It really makes you realize the enormity of it all. you’re someplace new. It was like a community where they had plastic signs everywhere to help you find your way from one office to another, buildings with classrooms, and club events.
Without these outdoor banners telling me exactly where I needed to go I know I would’ve felt completely lost and alone. They helped make the transition easier. Come to think of it, all of the schools I liked most were the ones that did make use of these banners. They just felt a little more home-y to me.
Five Boro Flag, Banner, and Sign make customized vinyl banners that you can use on your campus. You can specify them in a matte or glossy vinyl finish and should you need any mounting hardware they can provide those as well. Lamppost banners, attention flags, and nylon feather flags are all useful for Open House and for big campus events like graduation, sports events, and more. You can even have custom flags made for your team for placement out on the field and in the stands.
