We are all familiar with the traditional neon signs that have adorned businesses for years. This bent glass tube filled with neon glass has been a mainstay in the sign industry for decades. Neon is beautifully hand crafted by skilled artisans to create a unique visual statement and still has a place in retro-style signage for many installations – bars, movie theaters, diners, etc. What is not so commonly known is that much of what used to be lit by neon is now being lit by LEDs. Yes, those same little diodes used in many electronic devices are more affordable and provide a great deal of flexibility at lower usage and maintenance costs than traditional neon.

We are all familiar with vehicle magnets. They are those handy signs that realtors, contractors, home party product reps and others use to promote their business on the sides of their cars and trucks. Magnets serve a lot of very valuable functions. For new businesses starting out, it is an affordable first step toward your mobile billboard. For others, it is the best way to sign their business vehicle without violating home owner association covenants when they can’t park their “commercial/business vehicle” in the garage. And for still others, it is a compromise when ‘permanently’ branding a vehicle is not necessary or possible.

One of the most cost effective ways for a company, community group or organization to promote and event is with a vinyl banner sign. We have all seen banners flapping away on the sides of the road, tied to fences and hung on buildings. Banners can be used inside or out, are easy to install and give you a lot of bang for the buck which explains their proliferation.

Remember when your business was new, how bright and vibrant your sign was? When you drive up to your business today, especially if you have been driving up to the same location for a number of years, you may not notice that your old sign is looking a little dated. Is that how you want your clients to see your business?

You never get a chance to make a first impression, isn’t that the expression? And that applies to your lobby sign as much as your personal appearance. Take a look at your business' lobby from the perspective of a new client. Come on, walk in and take a look around like you have never been there before. What do you see?

Digital graphics are a great way to advertise your upcoming business. Instead of the usual construction barrier or paper covered windows, why not take advantage of that real estate to generate some buzz for your new enterprise? Construction build out can take up to 90 days. Don't waste that valuable advertising time. Cover that frontage with intriguing images and teasers to get folks talking about that hot new company coming to town. You can even use your architectural elevations to give the look of your storefront before it is even built.

Every city has them, a select few classsic neon signs that light the night sky or the historic structure that surrounds a particularly majestic architectural sign.

I am consistently amazed at all of the great ideas people have for businesses. Take Golfing Richmond.com. Joe's business is putting golfers together with tee times in the central Atlantic region. The website enables a golfer, who finds him or herself with some unexpected free time, the ability to search courses in the immediate vicinity with available tee times, book the slot and get directions to the course in just a few clicks. I have already had three sales reps in the office who saw the wrap and took down the site information. What a great idea, right? Makes me wish I had thought of it first!

Spring has come and it is time to work on your yard. It is also a great time to work on your brand image. Take the folks at Virginia Green Lawn Care. They have a great business, take pride in the work they do and that pride shows in the care and maintenance of their service vehicles.
