OSU Food Cart

Ohio Stadium Food Carts – Buckeye Football 2013

For a lot of us here in central Ohio there are few things as exciting as the start of The Ohio State University‘s football season. Come fall, it is time for tailgating at the Ohio Stadium and enjoying some of the country’s best football with family and friends. Good food, good company and good college football… what more could anyone ask?

Pro Sign and Graphics was honored in 2013 to get the opportunity to wrap the new food carts for the Ohio Stadium  We got the call with very little time before Opening Day so we had to quickly swing into gear in order to handle the 16 units needed at the last minute.

While it was a lot of work it was a lot of fun to bring the Pro Sign and Graphics team to the stadium in order to complete the wrap installations.  Needless to say, traveling the massive concrete concourses from cart to cart while witnessing the team on the field getting prepared for the season was quite a treat for a Buckeye Fan.

Fleet Graphics mean a fast turn around … want to do it in style?

 

Enjoy a coffee house setting while your graphics are done

Oftentimes a fleet graphic project involves multiple vehicles & drivers coming in and out of a shop during the day.  When the necessary work will only take a few hours the drivers can get stuck with deciding between leaving the vehicle (while finding someone to pick-up / drop-off) OR sitting in a hard chair in some lobby waiting for the work to be completed.

Pro Sign and Graphics has created a great space right here in our large, indoor, alarmed & insured facility to make it much easier to decide.  Our waiting room has a coffee house feel where folks can hang out & get some work done while they wait.  With wireless access they can fire up the laptop to do some paperwork while taking advantage of the various drinks available.  Would you rather just sit back and hang out for bit?  Feel free to turn on the TV or bring a couple of DVD with you and watch movies… no problem at all here.

Use the table to work or hang on the couch and watch a movie… you decide

At Pro Sign and Graphics we try to make the entire graphics experience as easy as possible for you AND your crew.  By choosing us to handle your fleet graphics & vehicle wrap installations you can be confident that you are working with a company who understands the needs of everyone involved.

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

Pro Sign and Graphics - barricade wrap - wall wrap - wall graphic

Custom construction wall barricade graphics

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.

Echo 24 Gets A Custom LED Sign

Pro Sign and Graphics creates a custom illuminated sign

Echo 24 Custom LED illuminated sign

When a client comes to us asking for something new, something unusual, something bright & eye catching… we deliver.  After the initial consultation we determined that a standard electric sign would not fit the bill for Echo 24.  Their edgy logo and tech based company needed something with a creative pop.  They needed a unique concept that would really attract the attention of anyone driving by, night or day.  The end result of our design concept is a custom made edge lit acrylic face with LED lights.  The face was custom routed from the back to create  edges around the logo which give the light something to bounce off of.  This technique combined with a front layer of high performance vinyl graphics produces a highly visible logo during the day as well as a brilliant green glowing effect at night.
