  • 3 Minor Design Elements That’ll Help Your Brand Stand Out

    The first rule of creating great trade show displays is to work with a good designer. This rule also extends to hiring a competent printing service. Professional printing companies that have several years of experience know every detail of the printing process—they can warn you if your requirements do not match a design or offer advice regarding printing style and which techniques are best suited for your design.

    At Power Graphics, we have been working with small-size and medium-size businesses for more than 25 years, offering high-quality prints for excellent value. Some of the ways we help clients effectively bring out brand value include:

    Using Environment-Friendly Products

    People no longer mind spending a little more money on products and services offered by eco-friendly companies. If you’re making efforts to promote sustainability, there’s certainly no harm in making sure customers know about them.

    For example, we offer a wide range of nature-friendly, plasticizer-free, recycled, and recyclable indoor and outdoor media. These products are printed using eco-friendly latex inks or UV curable inks. All our green products carry a friendly icon, allowing you to showcase your eco-friendly credentials.

    Focusing on the Details

    It’s the small details that separate good designs from the great ones. We tell our clients: if a design has too many elements, it’s a good idea to scale back. Sometimes a client has a design  that has too many colors. With our experience, we can help these clients establish color harmony and make sure their designs are simple and straightforward. Small elements like rounded and squared corners, gradients, sizes, and font faces are important, and each element plays a part in reception.

    Choosing the Right Printing Materials

    When selecting printing materials, it’s important to consider the characteristics of the object you’re printing on. You must also consider the environment where the banner stand will be used. If a display will be used in a food service or health care area, such a hospital, doctor's office, or cafeteria, it's important to use materials and printing techniques that don't give off harmful fumes or odors that would be inappropriate in such areas. When in doubt, we're happy to help make sure you're selecting the best materials for your particular needs.

  • How to Use Trade Show Graphics to Stand out from the Crowd

    Expensive trade show displays and grand booth designs do not always ensure trade show success. Sometimes small things—like how your trade show graphics are designed or the color and texture of your backlit graphics—can attract trade show attendees to stop and take notice. If you’re planning to set up an exhibition stand for an upcoming event, here are a few things to consider:

    Look for Graphics That Suit Your Brand’s Personality

    Trade show graphicsmust be consistently aligned with your brand values. For example, the graphics used on banner stands, tabletop displays, or other trade show displays must match the giveaways, promotional flyers, and brochures you hand out to prospective visitors.

    When designing graphics for our clients, we try and understand brand value before doing anything. Does the brand embrace playfulness or prefer being reserved? Does the brand focus on a young audience or one that’s older? What human characteristics (creativity, honesty, empathy, outspokenness) reflect through the brand?

    Do Not Crowd the Banner with Too Many Words

    Trade show displays are all about visual appeal. Make sure the images used are clean, attractive, and eye catching. Wordy visuals turn off audiences, and it’s said the average trade show attendee spends no more than two to three seconds glancing through a display. To communicate your message effectively, do not use more than six or seven compelling words. The idea is to draw a person’s attention with images—if the images are effective, focus will then move to booth staff.

    Colors Matter

    Graphic designers are always drawing influence from brands when choosing color schemes; this is also done to maintain uniformity with an overall marketing design. Look for colors that represent your brand and are consistent with the message you’re trying to convey.

    Some of the basic rules of ensuring color harmony include:

    • Contrast text colors with backgrounds.
    • Use bright colors for long-range graphics.
    • Maintain a balance in color unity—too many similar colors can be unappealing while too much diversity can be over-stimulating.

    Text Placement Matters as Well

    Important text must be placed at eye level. The two-foot area above the top of the banner is the best place for text. Also, do not fit too many words in a single line as this affects readability.

  • 5 Factors to Consider when Buying Trade Show Displays

    Trade show marketing can quickly get expensive. For one, renting a booth could set you back by a few hundred dollars. Then when you consider the cost of other essentials like promotions, buying/renting trade show displays, staffing and travel expenses, booth design, etc., you could be spending a few thousand dollars.

    Fortunately, there are a few ways to cut costs without compromising quality.  For example, when buying trade show displays, here are a few criteria to consider for getting the most of your money:

    Quality

    We have all, at some point, chosen something cheap to save a few dollars only to regret it later.  Some businesses, especially those participating in an event for the first time, make this mistake. Although money had to be considered when purchasing trade show items, the cost should not be the only criteria. Cheap banner stands don’t last beyond an event or two or worse, they could break midway during the event. This will cause you to have to spend more money in the long run as you will need to replace ruined displays.

    But just because something is expensive does not mean it is quality! Look for products that offer value for money. The price must match the quality promised so customers know what they are purchasing.

    Versatile

    Choosing versatile products can help you save money when doing multiple trade shows and events. You can always replace the graphics on a banner stand and use them for different occasions. Banner stands can be combined to form a banner wall. Similarly, banners can double up table covers, and counters may double up as customer service kiosks. Look for products that can be used in more than one way to maximize your investment.

    Reputation of the Seller

    Look for retailers who offer a wide range of products and have been selling for some time. They should be knowledgeable enough to guide you to the best product for your situation.

    The reputation of the retailer also matters. Genuine and experienced retailers promptly answer queries and want to help their customers instead of just wanting to make money.

    Functionality

    A trade show booth should attract potential buyers and be functional enough for the staff to work with as well. There must be enough space for people to move around it and showcase the information at the booth. The trade show displays must not take up too much space and become cumbersome and in the way, yet they need to be large enough to serve their purpose.

    Ease of Use

    Look for products that are easy to use. For instance, when buying banner stands, choose products that are easy to install and takedown. Having products that are also easy to transport can make getting to and from the event much less of a hassle and will start your event off positively.

    Consider all of these factors when looking for displays for your next trade show or event.

  • Trade Show Display Shopping when Your Budget is $1000 or Less

    A trade show is a great way to promote your business and reach out to potential customers. But putting up an attractive booth is not easy. From budgeting for materials to buying trade show displays, there are so many things to consider.

    Buying the right type of displays for your booth is equally challenging. You will want to look for products that are engaging and within your budget but worth the money. If you’ve been assigned to shop for trade show displays on a budget, here are a few things to remember:

    Backlit Displays

    Backlit displays are usually used at shopping malls and department stores, but they are also great to use at events showcasing a product or service. There are many styles for different uses, but they all have a light source to create a compelling visual effect. Backlight graphics are usually sold per square foot and are available in a wide range of materials, including backlit film, polyester, printable film, fabric, and adhesive vinyl, and different types of displays will require different graphic materials.

    Backlit display sizes cover a wide range from small 8.5 x 11 inch wall mounted displays up to 30' wide backlit fabric trade show displays and everything in between. These types of displays will catch the attention of everyone who passes by.

    Banner Stand

    A banner stand is a great way to add a visual impact to your trade show booth. Use them to promote a product, advertise your business, or guide visitors to your booth. They are available in a wide range of sizes and types. Tabletop banners can be used to display detailed information while large banners can double up as photo backdrops. You can also choose from a wide range of banner material, including vinyl, fabric, polyester, and even flame-retardant cotton. Banners are sold by the square foot while stands usually range from $30 to $300, depending on the quality of the material used.

    Table Covers

    Trade show booths are expensive, so it makes sense to you use every inch of space for advertising your product or service. A customized table cover is a great way to create an attractive but professional display. You can choose from full imprint table covers, simple covers with your logo and even fitted table covers to find what works best for your space and your budget.

    Banner Wall

    Two or more banner stands can be combined to create a banner wall. These can be used as a backdrop for photos. If you are introducing a product at an exhibition, this banner wall can be a great backdrop. You can combine them for a single wall or use them separately, making them versatile for any event.

    One or more of these display types can help your trade show booth stand out from the rest and keep the heavy foot traffic coming your way.
