I will briefly address the 10 Tips:

 

  • Target Your Audience

If you try to reach everyone, you’ll appeal to no one.

 

  • Grab Attention

Grab your audience’s attention and keep it by incorporating thought provoking graphics and messaging.

 

  • Use Color to Add Depth

Another way to grab your audience’s attention is to use colors that work well with your graphics and messaging.

 

  • Watch Your Fonts

Using too many conflicting fonts is one of the fastest ways to pigeonhole your signage into the amateur category, and keep it there.

 

  • Use Minimal Wording

Most signage is only viewed for a few seconds at best. Make sure to keep wordiness to a minimum.

 

  • Images

Remember that large format images are often blown up to be several times the size of their original file.

 

  • Enlighten, Educate, and Entertain

Although you only have a moment to do so, the best signage and displays accomplish these three things.

 

  • Call to Action

So you’ve delivered your message… now what?

 

  • Test Drive

Once you have your large format project ready to go, run it by a few people for an objective opinion.

 

  •  Complete

Now that you have taken the past 9 steps, you are ready to get your signage out there!

5 Reasons You Will Want To Get a Vehicle Wrap With Us

Vehicle wraps are a great low-cost-high-reward investment for business owners and managers looking to wisely spend those remaining marketing dollars before the end of the year. We get that we’re not the only car wrap shop in town – there are plenty of other businesses that you could choose to work with, so we whipped up five great reasons why you should work with us if you’re adding vehicle wraps to your business marketing arsenal.

Reason #1 – Start with a Head Turning Design

There’s a lot of advertising out there vying for people’s attention, so if you want to stand out from the crowd you need a stunning design. Luckily, we have an awesome in-house designer who will work with you to turn your vision into reality, adding some professional finishing touches to make sure you get noticed!

 

Reason #2 – The Best Equipment & Materials

We only use the best equipment, inks and print materials available. Sure, there are knock-off brands that we could use to save a few dollars, but that’s not going to do you any good. We’ve invested in the best large format printing equipment available, we only use the best inks, and we only use the highest quality vinyl on the market. We simply won’t compromise on quality!

 

Reason #3 – Professional Installation

We’ve heard too many horror stories about vehicle wraps from other companies fading, cracking, peeling or bubbling. This is because other vehicle wrap suppliers use inferior materials but also rush through the installation.

When our installation professionals are working on a car, van or truck wrap, they make sure that the vinyl is properly adhered to the vehicle and carefully tucked into the exact contours of your vehicle. This will eliminate bubbling and peeling, making sure that you’ve got a beautiful car wrap for years to come!

 

Reason #4 – Years of Experience

You know what’s better than the last car wrap we did? The next one! Every time we do a car wrap we get a little bit better, and we’ve done hundreds of vehicle wraps of all different types so we’re pretty darn good at it by now (if we don’t say so ourselves)!

So whether it’s some cool design ideas, choosing the perfect colors, the right vinyl, or an expert installation, we put our years of experience to work for you!

 

Reason #5 – The Best Value

Are we the cheapest car wrap shop on the block? No, we’re not. You might find cheaper prices, but you won’t find a better value. Because we use the best equipment and materials, sometimes our prices can be a bit higher than other quotes you might get. But how much money are you really saving if your vehicle wrap starts fading, cracking or peeling a year or two from now and you have to replace it? We’d rather do the job right the first time so you don’t have to worry about next time for a long time.

SpeedPro Introduction

20151116_164858_resized

My name is Brian. I am the Marketing/Project Manager here at SpeedPro Imaging. We are a large format graphics studio located in Santa Rosa. We specialize in vehicle graphics, vehicle wraps, wall murals, trade show displays, large signage, banners, point of sale displays, cut graphics, window graphics, floor graphics, photo reproduction and even canvas wraps. We basically print at very large sizes at a very high quality. We do a lot of work for graphics designers, ad agencies, other smaller printers, museums, hotels, new businesses, the beverage industry, and car dealers. We love doing work for non-profits and local small businesses, but we also have global accounts and big name businesses that we work with as well. But we are so much more than just that.

We pride ourselves on our quality prints and our outstanding customer service. You will be treated like family here, and we also can get the job done quickly (hence the name SpeedPro). We are a franchise that started in Canada and now there are more than 120 SpeedPro’s across the United States. But don’t think that that makes us any less local. The owner here, Jeff Bricker, is very passionate about this community. He was an ambassador at the Santa Rosa Chamber of Commerce for 2 years and won the Ambassador of the year in 2014. We give discounts to all Chamber members and all Non-Profits.

We also love giving out our competitive wholesale pricing to anyone that will resale our product. I have to admit that we will not be the least expensive options when it comes to printing. But we take so much pride in our work that I can guarantee you that our work will be the highest quality and longest lasting product in Sonoma County. We go out of our way to get you what you need. We even give out a free hour of design work on all projects.

Mainly though, we are “print shop” that hates being called a “print shop”. This is because we are so much more, we want what is best for you, we want to help YOUR business grow, that is our main goal here. We don’t take our job lightly and we won’t stop until you are 100% satisfied. There is so much more about us that I cannot even put words to. You will just have to see for yourself. Give us a call. Jeff is almost in the studio 24/7, and is willing to deliver finished products to you, free of charge, in rain, snow or shine.

I must admit also that we won’t accept some of the smaller jobs but nothing is too big for us. We will go to heights you have never imagined. If you don’t believe me just look at some of our work on speedprosantarosa.com. We love the challenge, so call us and lay it on us. I don’t think you will be able to scare us off that easily!
