11 creative ways to get noticed with signs and posters.

It’s no secret that a great sign attracts attention – and customers. But what’s the best strategy for sharing your unique message? Here are some helpful hints.

BANNERS

Send a powerful message, indoors or out. Hang them or stand them -- at tradeshows, grand openings, sporting events and more. With banners, the sky’s the limit.

Shop Banners

“I designed this banner…and use it every week at the market. It's heavy enough for my purposes, the eyelets are well fixed and strong and it looks fantastic week after week.”

1

Think vertical.

Consider displaying banners upright in a stand. Perfect for tradeshows, shop windows and more.
2

Get rid of the clutter.

Opt for a simple, eye-catching design and choose one or two fonts that are easy to read.
3

Show community spirit.

Support your local sports team or sponsor a 5K run by putting your logo on a banner.

Durable, waterproof vinyl.

Choose from two strengths of durable, fade-resistant vinyl to display with metal eyelets, vertical stands or the included adhesive hangers.

Indoor
340 gsm vinyl is perfect for indoor events.

Outdoor
500 gsm vinyl is tough enough to withstand the elements.

POSTERS

Posters provide immediate visibility so you can advertise events at a moment’s notice. Promote your brand, services and products on booths, walls and windows.

Shop posters

“I bought these posters to use at a trade show. They made my company stand out and brought an amazing amount of traffic to our stand! We were able to pick up a large amount of clients.”

Think big.

Considering people are visual learners, create a high-impact look for your business with an oversized poster.
5

Get ready for your close-up.

If you use a photograph, make it high resolution so it displays clearly in a large size.
6

Less is more.

Resist the temptation to fill every space with words. You can still send a strong message with minimal text.

The right stock makes a difference.

Premium glossy
Thicker than matte, with glossy finish for richer colours and crisper, sharper images. Luxurious look and feel.

Matte
Lightweight, yet durable, with smooth, rich texture. Great for black and white and detail-oriented posters.

SIGNS

Place on a pavement, garden or wall. A well-placed, durable sign attracts attention to sales and events or helps customers or guests get their bearings.

Shop signs

“We bought these to advertise our services for our country house rental service. We placed them in our customers' gardens and even after a year they still look good. We were pleased with the price as well.”

Lead the way.

Use signs to direct customers and guests. Perfect for special events, open houses and more.

Create a testimonial.

An advertising board that reads, “Happy customer of…” with your business name and logo is a great marketing tool.
9

Use signs of all kinds.

The best sign strategy will use a combination of products to reach more people in more places.

MAGNETS & DECALS

Stick and re-stick your message in a shop or on your car.

10

Offer regular incentives.

Change window decals often so customers come back to look for new offers.
