How to Hire the Right Vehicle Fleet Graphics Company

As one of Chicago’s most highly rated vehicle fleet graphics shops, we take a lot of time talking to business owners about how to hire the right company to complete the very important task of branding their vehicles. In our line of work, there is a very low margin for error, and making one small mistake can lead to big setbacks in time and budget. That’s why it’s important to hire a local company that employs only the most qualified designers, printers and installers in the vehicle fleet graphics profession. We’ve heard too many horror stories of fly-by-night operations that have taken advantage of their clients by providing either a low quality product or shoddy workmanship. As a business owner or marketing professional, we…

Do Small Businesses Need Vehicle Graphics?

One of the more frequent questions we receive from small business owners who call our Chicago business sign shop is, “If I’m just a small business owner, can vehicle graphics really help my business?” In short, the answer is yes! No matter how many employees you may have or how many vehicles you may own, graphics can go a long way, spreading your brand’s message to wherever your vehicles may travel. As business owners ourselves, we know that advertising dollars can be tight. Most forms of local advertising, including radio, TV, newspaper and internet, are costly and temporary. Unfortunately, a small business owner will rarely see a positive return on investment on these forms of local advertising. When it comes to your…

What’s the Difference Between a Local Custom Business Sign Company and Cheap Online Printers?

Let’s face it. When it comes to graphics printing there are a number of cheap, online outlets that will print your pre-designed job and ship it to you. That’s great if you’re a graphic designer and an expert in installing graphics. If not, you’ve got a couple of problems. First, graphic design is a job best left to trained design professionals who know how to produce high-quality imagery that will print out properly on just about any surface. Without the technical know-how, your printing job can easily be printed at the wrong size, in the wrong color or come out looking blurry or pixelated. Second, attempting to install costly custom graphics on your own is a very risky proposition. Essentially,…

Custom Vehicle Graphics Get Your Business Noticed on the Street

Does your business have just one vehicle or an entire fleet of vehicles? Do you allow those vehicles to leave the lot everyday without graphics to advertise your products, services or contact information? If so, you’re missing one the biggest long-term, cost-effective marketing opportunities available. When you think of commercial fleet vehicle graphics, your mind probably immediately goes to entire vehicles wrapped with brightly colored and often distracting messages.
