Multiple days and multiple installers saw the completion of mega sized floor graphics, wrapped columns, goal marks, wall logos, and display carts all through the Fan Fest and the Columbus Convention Center.  Loads of work and loads of full color prints galore.

January was definitely a great way to start off 2015._DSC8104

Pro Sign and Graphics was very pleased to able to work on an exciting new project for the new H&M store at The Commons at Fairfield Mall in Beavercreek, OH.   The impressively large, 12 foot tall by 130 foot long barricade is currently in place as construction continues on the latest H&M location in Ohio.  All of the graphics were created using 3M vinyl film, protected with component matched 3M laminates and installed by Pro Sign and Graphics as a 3M Certified Graphics Installation Company.  Pro Sign and Graphics is also a Premium member on the latest wrap industry installer resource WrapperMapper.com.

Don’t waste a chance to build your brand … even during construction.

Simply put, you should never waste a chance to build the identity of your brand.  Whether you are a nationally recognized chain of stores or a one person start-up, it is wise to always look for ways to expose the market to your business.

In this example, a new North Face location was coming into the local mall.  Even though the store itself would not be open for weeks or months, the marketing folks were right on using their construction barricade as a brand showcase.  The standard construction barricade is typically used for masking the dust & noise of often messy & unsightly work.  Pro Sign and Graphics was approached to help convert what was once just a plain gray wooden wall into a brand extension for the client.  With our help the new construction was masked and transformed into a bright, colorful advertisement for the North Face name.  More importantly, the local market was made aware of the new store’s location well in advance of the Grand Opening.  By generating buzz, putting out the word and demonstrating their progress this store benefited from immediate business when the doors opened.

All in all, this in an excellent example of making great use of large format graphics to build a brand and help drive business.

Why 3M Certified … and why do I care?

3M Certified Graphics Installation Company

3M Certified Graphics Installation Company… has a nice ring to it but what exactly is it?  Is being 3M Certified just another bogus “title” that anyone with a printer and some vinyl can buy?  Is it just a graphic with the 3M name on it?  What exactly does this have to do with you and why should you care?  It just so happens, I have some answers for you.

First and foremost, 3M is a multi-billion dollar international company with products ranging all over the board.  In the sign & graphics game, 3M is the industry leader in vinyl films, wrap materials, graphic films, laminates etc.  While there are plenty of other material suppliers out there, 3M is generally regarded as the Cadillac of materials.  Incredible quality, ground breaking Research and Development and the best reputation means everyone else is simply playing catchup.

It stands to reason that when you have a reputation like 3M it is in your best interest to make sure your products are being used and installed in the best manner possible.  Even a wrap printed on the best 3M film can give the company a bad name if it is installed poorly with bad results.  What you need is a group of experienced, qualified and thoroughly tested installation experts… a 3M Certified Graphics Installation Company.  To even be considered, 3M requires 3 years minimum experience, validated business practices, confirmed liability and insurances as well as an extensive and rigorous two days of hands-on testing & judging.  To say that a 3M Certification has to be earned is an understatement.

So, what do you get with your 3M Certified Installer?  You get peace of mind knowing your wrap was done properly with the best results possible.  You know you get the best warranty in the world and the knowledge that your investment in graphics will last.  In short, you get unparalleled value that you can count on.  No matter what your graphics project is or where it needs to be installed you can call Pro Sign and Graphics to help.
