Estate Agents ….could your Council damage you business

Estate Agents business have been changed forever by the internet, with online searches accounting for the major share of home sales. But how many people contact your office because they have seen your Branded Estate Agents Boards emblazoned with your telephone number or because they have scanned the QR Code giving direct access to the property details on your website. This group of people are not searching on the web, but chance buyers who have been made aware of a pending property sale by great cost effective advertising by your agency. But what if your council banned your most cost effective advertising tool, your Branded Estimate Agents Board. How would this effect your business ? Over the year the government have imposed more and more legislation on Estate Agents with stringent sizes of boards that can be displayed. For Sale Boards can be placed on property the Estate Agents are selling or renting out with a time limit of 14 days after the sale date for removal of the boards. Councils are banning the boards, classing them as a blot on the landscape. A growing list of Councils,Westminster, Kensington,Hammersmith, Lincoln, Hastings, Preston, Bath, Newcastle and Leeds have banned the For Sale Board after successful application to the government. It is reported that Mr Mark Hayward, chief executive of National Association of Estate Agents has called on Councils not to ban the For Sale Boards asking Councils to enforce the existing planning rules. Estate Agents should act responsibly to avoid the ban spreading by siting For Sale Boards only on property that is listed for sale with them. For those of you in banned areas there are ways around the ban. Promote events within the area with participants placing Branded boards advertising the event on their property. Adhesive free Printed window stickers advertising posters applied to the inside of the glazing. Property with lawns can have printed Graphics applied and removed without damage. Floor graphics can be applied to concrete or tarmac drive ways within the property Boundary.This product can easily be removed after the sale of the property and can even have an over sticker applied when the sale is complete. Graphics can be applied to vehicles in the drive. It’s time to be inventive with printed advertising.

Way finder and directory signage

Way finder and directory signage

No building or complex is complete without way finder signage, From outside to inside way finder signs are required as people will be lost without them. The building needs a name or number as does the entrance or doors. In the grounds or once inside visitors need direction. This type of product needs planning and the input of a graphic designer as this concept will also carry corporate Branding as well as informative messages. The design must be simple, easily read, and in some cases tactile for visually impaired. Planning way finder and directory signs is a great opportunity to produce eye catching Branded signage that delivers people smoothly to their destination. Add soft sell printed wall covering to the mix to enhance the program and this will add a further dimension to the project and Branding. Your graphic designer will need a very good brief and a budget for the project, at this stage you will need the input of a sign manufacturer who can offer all the latest materials and lighting to form stunning informative signage that will last for years with little or no maintenance. With an arsenal of materials that offer a long life and versatility in production to deliver the finished project with knockout affects. Hard wearing Acrylic sheet that can be opaque and self coloured to opal for illumination.

Self adhesive for easy change options and temporary information points. Fire rated PVC sheet that can be printed with full colour images and is easily cut to shape and installed. Aluminium trim, frames and finishing can be part of the installation. Composite sheet can offer ridged panels for corners and outdoor signage.

Tom has taken the photographs and reflected them to emphasise the vanishing points

The project not only presents the hidden passion of a local individual, it helps to improve the visual appearance and enhance the overall feel of Great Yarmouth Train Station, one of the gateways to the town. Thanks to Greater Anglia and everyone involved in the project’s hard work this display should be installed in time for the air show.

Butcher, Baker and Candlestick maker all need print

Whatever your business you need to promote

Your business may not offer a product for sale it may be a service or you may be only online. Whatever your business it needs print to raise awareness and visibility of the company and products or services offered. Even online companies need to promote awareness of that important website and companies as large as Amazon www.amazon.co.uk produce the billboards to shout about the services and products they offer. Larger companies use print in their plan to promote as part of a carefully planned cross media campaign. Print is the stable element with a guarantee of  short or long term visual impact. With so many ways to advertise in print, planning is so important as there are so many options available, billboards, buses, taxis, window graphics and floor graphics internal or external. Street advertising can be costly but effective, chill cabinets, magnetics, vinyls and dividers. we find that hanging cards with a message printed each side are popular and also very cost effective. There are numerous ways to advertise from Vehicle markings, advertising wraps and part wraps even removable magnetics for taxis and variable print and consecutive numbering.

Retail business know the power of print, producing regular print campaigns following the seasons and promoting sale promotions and embracing new phenomenon like Black Friday making this one of the largest turnover of sales in a two week period across the world.

Print is often overlooked by both large and small companies as they pay for radio and TV advertising this is a fantastic way of promoting but needs to be backed up by visuals and as we all know print is one of the most visible means of advertising. Offering simple print solutions like a banner which is reasonably priced but effective and easy to use and  placed in the correct position with a heavy footfall the banner can be viewed by thousands on a daily basis

Print has the versatility of performing inside and outside with weather resistant inks and print media will perform as well outside as in. Many print media will perform well if used in both scenarios.

A good place to start is to give your designer a very in-depth brief of both the print needs and the projects end use. Great design delivers not only a fantastic visual impact with high quality print to ensure the message is backed with vibrant colour. This will deliver the message with visual impact delivering more sales, its always a good idea at this stage to discuss your ideas with the qualified print manufacturer who should give ideas and suggestions on what can be done and an idea of meeting your budget.

High quality vector artwork will enable the artwork to be enlarged or reduced in size to the perfect print sizes required with out loss of the quality of any part of the design. If in dought you or your designer can contact Repro Arts with any artwork or media questions on sales@reproarts.co.uk our team is always happy to help.

With modern wide format printers full colour printing is common place, printing direct to most  print media material in sheets up to 3M x 2M or reel media up to 2.2M wide. With this size range all print requirements can be met. Printing with UV and solvent inks  is dependent on media specifications and you can print onto one or two sides.

Additional finishes can be added to the full colour print which include UV spot varnish full coverage UV Varnish in Gloss, Matt, Satin or colour finishers. Add Lamination with Gloss, Matt or Satin finishers to enhance the print colours. Add a shape to the printed item with die cutting or with a little engineering make the print three dimensional,too much to take in… again talk to your printer who will give you the advice and show you the options.

There is a lot to consider when putting together a print campaign not just the specifications and application  but also the budget.

With a wide range of wide format print media there is a product that will fit the budget for each print campaign however large or small. Dibond composite panels Correx, Foamex, PVC all in a range of colours. Display board in range of thickness,perspex acrylic in a range of colours including transparant and in a range of thicknesses. With Reel print media material options include self-adhesive films, paper, Back lit films, front lit banner PVC, Clingz are particularly great as they are all adhesive free. All can be printed in full colour plus white for clear or dark colour sheets.

The picture shown features a print project undertaken for local Jim’s Butchers. Their print brief was clear and precise,use our Branding to display our special offers outside the store. The displays need to be moved outside each morning and moved back into the store at the end of the trading day.We already produce A4 promotional hand outs printed on our store printer with artwork produced on the store computer.

Our studio were soon on the case, studying the brief and looking at previous artwork produced and used to print projects for Jim’s Butchers. The light bulb moment switched on. Use Jim’s Butchers Branding as a back board to stand outside the store with the A4 print outs attached to it. After a few visuals the plan pulls together. A very large Jim’s Butchers, Butcher Branding cut out add the wording Special offers and Jim’s Butchers with six spaces for six A4 special offer print outs. Artwork produced and signed off for print. The artwork is printed three to view on a sheet of white faced composite sheet 3M x 1.5M. The full colour printed sheet was then lamminated with gloss film to protect the printed image so when the A4 special offer sheets are removed, any unwanted adhesive residue can be cleaned away. The printed and gloss laminated sheet of composite is now cut to shape, revealing three out door sign units with the printed display ready for delivery.

Why use composite for the Jim’s Butchers project. This print media is easy to print onto, it is lightweight and easily portable to move in and out of the stored because the composite can also be gloss laminated  it can be regularly cleaned. Composite can be easily profiled around the Branding offering large display panels.

If you like a butchers bargain www.jim’sbutchers.co.uk to see Jim’s bargains this week.

The printed display boards have worked well, increasing sales and visitors to Jim’s
