Catch Their Attention with Custom Signs

Catch Their Attention with Custom Signs

jfutWhen you’re running a local campaign, getting voters’ attention can be difficult. You may think that running expensive ad campaigns on TV and in the paper is easiest solution, but there are other, less expensive ways to get your name out there – like custom signs in Tampa, FL. Yard signs are a great way to catch the attention of passing traffic. Conscientious voters who have never heard of you will likely go home and look up your name for more information about your policies. So what do you need to create a great campaign sign?

Bold Lettering

You need to use lettering that will stand out from a distance. Using a simple font in white over a dark background will be the easiest to see.

Information to Include

When you create a campaign sign, you can’t put a lot of information on it. Passersby must be able to read and absorb the information very quickly. The best way to create a campaign sign is simply to put your name and the position you are running for. It is best not to include information about your party, because voters might ignore your sign based on their own party bias. The ideal situation is when a voter sees your name without any party affiliation and then looks into your campaign for more information. This means that those voters will make a more informed decision, and you may also receive more votes across party lines.

Distribute!

Distribute the signs to your supporters so they can do the advertising for you. Those that are already planning on voting for you will place the sign prominently in their yard where other, possibly undecided, voters will see it.

Big T Printing can make beautiful, eye-catching signs for your campaign. Contact us today to get started!

The Benefits of Promotional Products

Marketing Materials GalleryWe guarantee that somewhere in your desk drawers or pen cups you have a pen with the name of a prescription medication on it. You likely have no idea where it came from. Perhaps it was given to you to sign a document and you accidentally walked away with it. We can also guarantee that no matter how it came to you, you know the name of that prescription. After all, you have to look at it every time you use the pen. Are you going to go out and purchase the medication? Probably not, considering you probably don’t have the condition it’s meant to treat. The pen was most likely created for doctors to use so that when they come across a patient with that condition they will be more likely to prescribe that particular medication.

So consider your audience. Promotional pens are not strictly in the realm of the pharmaceutical industry – and promotional products don’t necessarily have to be pens, either. You can choose from pens, mouse pads, coffee mugs, stress balls, you name it. Consider the type of customer you want to attract with your promotional product and choose what you think they will most enjoy.

The benefits are simple to explain: every time the recipient uses the promotional product, they will see the name of your business. Because promotional products are given out for free, they will probably form a positive association with your business. Therefore, when the need for your services arises, they will most likely think of you first.

Remember to choose an item that is necessary and frequently used, like a pen or mouse pad. You should also make sure that the name of your business or your logo clearly conveys the type of services that you offer. And you should also remember that when you need promotional products in Tampa, FL, the best place to go is Big T Printing.

How to Brainstorm a Great Logo for Your Business

How to Brainstorm a Great Logo for Your Business

When you are first starting your business, designing the perfect logo can seem like a challenging task. While it may not be easy, there are steps you can take during the brainstorming process that will help you put together a logo that perfectly represents your business.

What are you selling?

Think about the main product or service that your business provides. This will be your starting point. Now think of an image that best represents that product or service. A great logo needs to give the viewer a basic understanding of what your business does.  For example, a coffee shop may use coffee beans, a steaming mug, or even a coffee stain in their logo.

What is the name of your business?jhftjh

If you can’t think of an image that you like enough to put on your logo, think about the name of your business. Does it involve a fun play on words that can be turned into a visual pun? Does the name contain an animal or plant? For example, an internet marketing company called Purple Monkey might use an image of a purple monkey in their logo.

What is the tone of your business?

Is your business fun and relaxed or serious? This is an important question to ask yourself when designing a logo. A printing business may use a fun, colorful design for their logo, while a law firm will utilize clean lines and a more utilitarian image.

Whatever logo design you decide on, you can always get amazing promotional products in Tampa, FL from Big T Printing. Having trouble thinking of a design? We also have a team of graphic designer to help you out! Visit BigTPrinting.com for more information, today.
