SpeedPro Imaging: The Big. Bold. Prescription for Effective Health Care Marketing

3 Health (1 Window Graphics_Heath)-BAs fall returns and temperatures cool, the flu bug will make its vengeful return. And if Australia is any indication – they’re dealing with two and a half times more cases this year compared to last – we have the makings of a long winter here in the United States. That’s why it’s imperative for all health care companies, such as drug stores, private practices, and medical centers, to entrust SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leader in large format imagery, with their marketing needs as health care issues take center stage.

Health care companies and medical providers are among the most coveted clients our SpeedPro Imaging studios across the country enjoy teaming up with. Take for example:

Bob Kelleher of SpeedPro Imaging Central New York. Bob has partnered with some of the largest health care systems and providers in and around Central New York. Administrators at partners such as United Health Services Binghamton General Hospital consult with Bob as they:

  • Upgrade primary care waiting rooms with wall murals
  • Add new life to walk-in clinics’ décor with sponsorship walls and staff portraits
  • Create billing info signage
  • Wrap busses, vans, and other vehicles with advertising

Darin Schneider of SpeedPro Imaging Denver has abundant experience transforming dreary and neutral medical facilities into vibrant pieces of art. Take a look at some of the imaginative work Darin has done both inside and outside for his cherished partners – including Kaiser Permanente, Denver Health and skilled nursing communities in the Mile-High City.

Health care is on top of many minds across the country. The fourth quarter of the year is prime-time for the medical industry and those associated with it. We here at SpeedPro Imaging want to help you position your practice, medical facility, and retail outlet as the authoritative resource for your customers’ medical needs.

For starters, these upcoming months include open enrollment period for health insurance. Millions across America are trying to determine the coverage that best fits their families’ needs. You can cement your brand as the go-to resource for answers to their questions.

Conversely, the end of the year marks the need to deplete flexible spending accounts. Many individuals and businesses are starting to calculate how much money they’re going to have left over and where they’re going to spend it. SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leader in large format imagery, recognizes these are great opportunities for those of you who are specialists, such as those who operate eye care centers or retail stores that sell eligible products.

Which brings us to the flu. No longer is it a certainty that patients will rely on their primary care physician to disseminate the vaccine. For businesses, the flu is extremely profitable. The flu vaccine industry is a $1.6 billion business. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says nearly 60 percent of American children and 42 percent of American adults received the flu vaccination in 2015-2016. Was your business among the places patients headed to receive their immunization?

It all equates to the potential for big business if you play your cards right. SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leader in large format imagery, has several solutions that can be adapted to fit your specific needs. Consider these options:

  • Window Graphics: Your windows may be the first opportunity to make an impression with your customers. Make it count with a bold graphics display. Transform your simple and plain windows into a powerful marketing tool. We can arrange large impact graphics that cover the entire window or smaller scale graphics that provide vital information.
  • Flags: Look no further if you’re searching for a noticeable and creative way to market your practice. Highly visible and versatile, flags can convey your central message both inside and outsided. The shape of the flag – teardrop, feather, flutter – is restricted only by your imagination.
  • Outdoor Signage: We can print picture frame, “A” frame, coroplast or fabric sidewalk signs with your main message. Durable and stunning, wherever you’d like to be seen outside, we can customize a signage solution that fits you, your message and your space.
  • Retractors: These signs are sharp and stand tall as they communicate the message to customers to be proactive about their health. These are lightweight and customizable. You could use retractors as a background as your clients get the word out about the importance of #flushots on various social media platforms.

We have serious solutions to help you market yourself as the responsible and dependable resource for health care related demands – not only this flu season, but all year long. Health can be unpredictable. Let SpeedPro Imaging assist in your efforts to take some of the unpredictability out of your bottom line.

SpeedPro Imaging: Small Business Owners Collaborate to Produce Big Results

7 Fleet

The 2016 Denver Broncos. SEAL Team Six. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Rocky and Bullwinkle (we have to have some fun, right?). Just a few examples of some of the great teams defined by excellent collaboration that have been assembled over the years. SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leader in large format imagery, is another fantastic case.

SpeedPro Imaging has grown to more than 130 studios spread across the country. Many of those locations are owned and operated by the same people you see at your child’s school, your local grocery store, or place of worship. Our franchise owners take pride that their studios cater to the needs of the communities they live in. And, they love helping other franchisees deliver big-time results as well.

What are some traits of a great team? If you’re a basketball team, having someone such as, say, LeBron James helps. But sports fans know that just having the best player doesn’t mean you have the best team. It’s about cohesiveness and commitment to a similar goal. And that translates well in franchising.

Fast Company recently determined there are five factors that separate great teams from good ones:

  • They are committed to the vision, and achieving extraordinary goals
  • They share accountability for results
  • Their communication is transparent
  • They resolve conflict constructively
  • They have mutual respect, and strong camaraderie

The teamwork displayed by ALL franchise partners in SpeedPro’s nationwide network is what differentiates us from our competitors. We’re a team. Our network of 130 studios works together to produce stellar products. SpeedPro owners are never alone on an island. There’s always a hand extended when needed.

Collaboration allows our SpeedPro Imaging franchisees to fulfill orders not just at home, but on a national level. Most SpeedPro Imaging franchisees use the same equipment (including the game-changing HP FB550 UV Flatbed printer), to consistently produce high-quality graphics studio-to-studio.

Rand and Lorna Scherff, who own and operate SpeedPro Imaging, North OC (Tustin, CA), bear a fantastic example of collaboration between SpeedPro studios.

System Pavers - Portland ORWhen seven local vehicle wraps turned to seventy national projects, Rand and Lorna turned to their fellow SpeedPro owners to successfully meet the needs of System Pavers, a national paving company who leases their vehicles through Enterprise Fleet Leasing. Then, Eagle Print Dynamics, a promotional materials broker, provided SpeedPro North OC with two more vehicle branding national accounts – which now keep SpeedPros busy across the nation.

“I never would have been able to win bids with these companies if it wasn’t for the network,” says Lorna, who’s teamed up with studios in Colorado, Washington State, Oregon, Northern California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Texas, and others. “Even though I could find third-party installers, it wouldn’t be the same. When I’m calling another SpeedPro, I know that I have a great relationship I can count on and that they’ll do a fantastic job.”

In Georgia, John Barber and Don Neder, co-owners of SpeedPro Imaging of Norcross, GA, also received an assist from their colleagues in Chicago and Dallas to help the cloud computing company Salesforce pull off a pair of spectacular events. With SpeedPro locations across the nation, the list of studio collaborations goes on.

SpeedPro Imaging can tailor solutions to fit your needs from coast to coast. Consider…

  • All in on Fleet Wraps: From state agencies in government to franchises operating across multiple states, SpeedPro Imaging can reproduce and wrap custom graphics onto any vehicle. Cars, trucks, vans or buses, our system is designed to provide the uniformity necessary to accurately portray your brand.
  • Serving multi-location Restaurants & Bars: Food quality isn’t the only consistency you’re looking to capture. Harmony within your chain’s multiple locations certainly achievable when you partner with SpeedPro Imaging. If your restaurant is situated in Seattle and Miami, SpeedPro Imaging studio owners will generate the same results.
  • Keeping it consistent in Retail: The next big thing in technology is weeks away from the big debut. You want to entice shoppers to purchase it at your stores. Partner with SpeedPro Imaging to create a graphics package that will produce point-of-purchase displays, window graphics, decals, and in-store signage that will leave no doubt where shoppers nationwide should turn to make the purchase.
  • Staying on target with Event Graphics: If you’re an operator of multiple trade shows, there are times where the airport may lose an important banner. No fret! When you work with one SpeedPro Imaging studio, rest assured you’re working with all of them. Your main contact in Boston will make one phone call, and your replacement banner will be waiting for you in Phoenix with plenty of time to spare.

The possibilities are endless, so we’re confident we have a solution for your specific project. We’ll put our heads and resources together as a team to make it happen. No project is too small, and no account is too big for SpeedPro Imaging.

Vehicle Wraps for Your Fleet: What You Need to Know

What You Need to Know About Vehicle Wraps Are you tired of your brand getting lost in a sea of advertising?

For today’s businesses, one of the biggest challenges is to find an effective way to advertise. While there are now more advertising mediums available than ever, people tend to tune many ads out, such as small print ads in a magazine or a click-through ad on Facebook.

Vehicle wraps, which are large vinyl graphics or decals applied to the outside of a vehicle, are a more efficient way to get your product or service before a larger market.

Today, an increasing number of businesses are using vehicle wraps to boost brand awareness in their local areas.

Car WrapsWhy Vehicle Wraps?

If your company already owns vehicles, trucks or trailers, it’s a wasted opportunity to not get them branded with at least the company logo.

Your fleet is seen by hundreds of potential customers each day. Seeing your brand while driving may remind them that they are in need of your services. It keeps your company top of mind, which can make all the difference when a potential customer is in need of what you offer.

This is also one of the rare instances where you own the medium. While you can rent ad space on billboards, you don’t have to worry about monthly expenses adding up over time if you already own a fleet of vehicles. You already paid for your business vehicle or fleet, now you just have to utilize them to their full potential!

How Many Impressions Will a Vehicle Wrap Generate?

The reach of your branded vehicle wrap will depend on how often and when you drive, how many vehicles are wrapped, and your location. It has been estimated that, during a typical day, a single vehicle wrap can generate between 30,000 to 70,000 impressions. According to stats from the Outdoor Advertising Association of America, vehicle wraps offer the lowest cost-per-impression than any other form of advertising.

Learn more about the reach and effectiveness of fleet wraps here. The power of vehicle wraps doesn’t stop with impressions.

Nielsen recently released a study that showed out-of-home advertising, such as fleet wraps, is the most effective offline medium to drive online activity. According to the study, within six months after seeing an out-of-home advertisement, 46% of people searched online for information about the company.

Vehicle wraps reach more people

Vehicle wraps are memorable. Even if they don’t call or click right away, they’ll think of you the moment they need your product or service.

Preparing Your Vehicle for Wrapping

It usually takes three to four days to print and laminate the graphics for the car wrap.

Several hours before taking your vehicle to be wrapped, use brushes or a pressure washer to remove road grime from low-lying parts, inside the door panels and other areas where dirt accumulates. All wax, polish and grease needs to be off the vehicle as that will interfere with the car wrap adhesive. SpeedPro will also clean the vehicle with chemicals to remove any remaining oily residue or contaminates.

Once your vehicle is at one of our climate-controlled SpeedPro studios, it takes our certified installers around eight hours to install the wrap. Depending on the size and complexity of the vehicle wrap, we may need the vehicle again a few days later to make sure everything is properly installed. Talk to a SpeedPro studio near you about your vehicle wrap needs and schedule.

How Long Does a Vehicle Wrap Last?

how long do vehicle wraps lastOn average, a vehicle wrap will last up to five years. However, the lifespan of a wrap depends on its quality and whether you hire a professional to print and install the wrap. A poorly made and haphazardly applied wrap could peel off long before its time and damage your car.

At SpeedPro, our highly trained studios have superior printing technology and installation methods that allow us to print and install beautiful car wraps. We use solvent long-life inks and laminate the vinyl car wrap with a UV protector to keep your vehicle wrap looking amazing for longer.

Perforated window film may not last as long as the rest of a car wrap. Because of perforation, the edges of window perforations may begin to peel under severe heat after 18 to 24 months. However, perforated window vinyl can be replaced without replacing the rest of the car wrap.

When you get your vehicle wrapped at SpeedPro, your service comes with a 3-year warranty on the vinyl and a 1-year warranty on the window graphics. Warranties do not apply to damage done to the vehicle or wear and tear.

The quality of a professional application will justify the vehicle wrap cost in the end.

Will a Vehicle Wrap Damage Paint Underneath?

Wraps are not likely to damage the paint on your vehicles. SpeedPro Imaging offers vinyl car wraps, which serve as a protective coat to paint when applied to the body of a truck, van or trailer. In fact, many fleets apply layers of vinyl anyway to protect trucks from the ravages of rain, hail and flying debris.

For vehicles that have recently been painted, the paint will need to cure for several weeks before the car can be wrapped. SpeedPro experts will pre-test your paint job prior to wrapping the vehicle. If your car’s paint is in poor condition, the car paint may peel if the vinyl wrap is ever removed.

Discoloration can sometimes occur if your vehicle comes into contact with acidic pollution. If the car wrap ever starts to discolor or turn brown, the graphics can be easily removed to avoid staining the car paint.

Do I Need to Design My Own Vehicle Wrap?

SpeedPro’s printing experts will work with you to create a stunning vehicle wrap design.

If you prefer to design your car wrap inhouse or with your agency, your local SpeedPro studio can work with the designer to make sure the images they create will work on your vehicles.

Need help creating a vehicle wrap design? Contact your local SpeedPro studio for their expertise.

vehicle wrap design

Vehicle wrap design ideas run the gamut from bold and colorful to direct and simple. Ultimately, the purpose of the design is to attract the attention of anyone who sees the vehicle, while at the same time keeping it simple. Not every wrap needs 100% coverage to get attention.

Any base vehicle color can be wrapped. Avoid text and logos that would be hidden in the body lines and contours of the vehicle. Some wrinkles and bubbles in car paint are common and can be easily hidden with a good car wrap design that includes the right shapes and colors. For other tips on how to design a vehicle wrap for your business, contact your local SpeedPro studio.

The cost of your car wrap design will depend on whether you get a simple decal, partial or full vehicle wrap.

Regardless of the type of vehicle you own – boat, motorcycle, trailer, van or semi-truck – we can design and apply your vehicle wrap. Check out a few of our vehicle wrap designs below.

How to Help Your Vehicle Wrap Last Longer

If you’ve invested in a beautiful vehicle wrap, you’ll want to make sure it lasts as long as possible.

How to clean a vehicle with a vinyl car wrap

Once your vehicle wrap has been installed, you’ll want to wait at least a week before washing your car. If your wrap includes window graphics, avoid rolling down the windows or using rear-window wipers as much as possible. It’s best to hand wash your car with a soft sponge and mild soap; however, you can use a car wash as long as they only use a soft brush and avoid high-pressure washes.

Do not use corrosives and solvents on the vehicle wrap. For tough dirty spots, try soaking the area with soapy water. If it’s still stuck, try 3M Citrus Base Cleaner. Always test cleaners in an inconspicuous area on your car wrap before applying to make sure it does not damage the wrap.

It’s ideal if you can store the vehicle indoors, under a cover or in a covered area when not in use.

How Do I Track Sales From a Vehicle Wrap?

When you begin advertising with trailer wraps, you’ll typically see a spike in customers. Most businesses that use this form of advertising see a large and immediate uptick. It can be difficult to track the amount of sales that come from a vehicle wrap unless you create exclusive windows of contact through the ad itself.

One way to go about this is to set up a unique phone number that will only appear on the vehicle wrap. This way, you can track sales from the vehicle wrap via calls from that number. A similar method would be to involve a unique but short URL exclusive to the vehicle wrap ad, which would lead viewers to a landing page for your business’s website. You could even run an exclusive promotional offer to people who respond to the car wrap.

Can a Vehicle Wrap Be Removed?

Can car wraps be removed without harming paint underneath

Yes, you can remove a vehicle wrap with the right anti-adhesive solutions. While you can remove the wrap yourself, it’s usually best to have a professional do it. When an inexperienced person handles the task, the wrap can split in various places and ultimately become a lot harder to remove.

Can a Vehicle Wrap Withstand the Rain?

Made from vinyl, fleet wraps are waterproof and can withstand rain and thunderstorms. On interstate and cross-country trips, fleet vehicles endure a range of weather conditions, from the hottest summer humidity to the rainiest falls and winters.

Vinyl car wrap for fleet

High-quality van graphics and wraps are designed to handle challenging weather conditions of all levels.

Do Vehicle Wraps Melt Off in Hot Weather?

As more parts of the country experience waves of 100-degree weather in the summer, SpeedPro’s professional fleet wrappers apply each wrap with care to ensure a snug fit throughout the life of the vehicle wrap.

It’s important to consider your area’s heat as a factor in design. While it may be nice to have perforated window graphics as part of your car wrap for both aesthetics and to keep heat out of the car, perforated window edges can detach when exposed to prolonged extreme heat.

How Much Does A Car Wrap Cost?

While the initial cost of a vehicle wrap may be high, keep in mind that it’s more of a one-time investment since you own that space.

The cost of a car wrap depends on the size, complexity of the installation, and the style of the design. A simple logo decal will have lower printing and installation costs than a partial or full vehicle wrap.

Find a SpeedPro studio near you for an estimate on a vehicle wrap.

The type of material used may also affect the cost of fleet wraps. If the vehicle is often driven at night, you may want to consider using reflective film within the design to enhance the appearance during nighttime driving.

A typical full car wrap could cost around $2,500 to $3,000. This pricing is based on average costs. Talk to a SpeedPro studio near you for an estimate on how much a car wrap will cost.

Where Can I Get a Vehicle Wrap?

When it comes to getting a vehicle wrap for your truck or trailer, it’s important to hire a team of specialists who can expertly handle the process each step of the way – from the initial vehicle wrap design to the final application. Whether you need a vehicle wrap on one truck or a whole fleet, SpeedPro Imaging can turn each of your vehicles into a dynamic, moving billboard for your business.

For more than 20 years, SpeedPro Imaging has been the nation’s leading provider of a range of large format printing, from window graphics and trade show displays to wall murals and vehicle wraps. With more than 130 locations from coast to coast, we service companies of various magnitude, from big brands to local businesses.

No matter what kind of market you cater to, brand exposure is more important than ever in today’s economy. Tiny ads in papers make little impression on modern consumers. Big, bold vehicle wraps get people looking, talking and clicking. At SpeedPro Imaging, we take satisfaction in seeing businesses succeed with dynamic advertisements on their vehicles.

SpeedPro Imaging – Graphics Solutions for Breweries That Quench Marketing Thirst

1-B BrewerySummer is winding down, the leaves are slowly starting to change colors, the days are getting shorter and the heat is giving way to cooler temperatures. It’s autumn! For beer enthusiasts, there’s nothing more satisfying than the anticipation of that smooth, fall blend and a little pumpkin spice.

SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leader in large format imagery, is just as pumped as you are for a new season. The months of September and October are loaded with beer-centric festivals. There’s Octoberfest Zinzinnati in Cincinnati, Ohio, Fremont Octoberfest in Seattle, Washington and the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado, to name a few.

For brewery operators, there isn’t a better or more competitive time to be in the business. We’re in the middle of a beer renaissance in America. Let’s digest some of these facts and figures: according to the Brewers Association, there were 1,803 breweries in America in 2010. In 2016, that number shot up to 5,301 – a 194% increase. The Beer Institute recently calculated that the combined economic impact of the brewery industry totaled more than $350 billion in 2016. And here’s an anecdote from Business Climate:

“Furthermore, just one job at a craft brewery will create an additional 45 jobs in other industries on average, such as packaging, business services, distributing, transportation and agriculture.”

As breweries become more of a familiar fixture across America, brewers need to start formulating a plan to stand out from the crowd. As we noted, it’s a competitive landscape. Just calling yourself a brewery isn’t going to cut it anymore. You need to show why patrons should give your establishment a visit. At SpeedPro Imaging, we partner with breweries who want to be seen.

You’ve got the right formula to make an outstanding product. Now is the perfect time to team up with SpeedPro Imaging to land the patrons who will keep the beer – and cash revenue – flowing.

Don’t take our word for it. Take a look at this testimonial from Jason Simonson, general manager at Rock Bottom Brewery in Denver, Colorado:

Just like your beer offerings, our Big. Bold. Solutions are never ending. Let’s examine five specific products and services SpeedPro Imaging offers to take your brewery to the next level.

Window Graphics: Crisp. Refreshing. Bold. That describes the graphics your local SpeedPro Imaging studio owner will design for your windows. We transform the ordinary windows into visual artwork that aligns with your brand. We offer both short-term and permanent impact graphics.

Flags & Outdoor Signage: Custom flags are sure to add flair standing tall outside your establishment. Our flags and outdoor signage are highly customizable and an effective advertising medium. We can help convey your message outside to draw customers inside.

Wall Murals: Let your walls entertain customers with coverings and murals. Brick, concrete, wood or your average sheetrock – no matter the service, we know how to add vivid colors and colorful display graphics. Leave your guests visually hypnotized as your beers captivate their taste buds.

Table Graphics: Often overlooked, but an essential player in your marketing game plan. This is where your patrons spend the most time. Reinforce everything that is special about your brewery with mesmerizing table coverings. Give notice to upcoming events, or show them how to engage with you via social media.

Decals: Small in name, big in stature. We’re not talking those little, annoying stickers you used on models. No matter the size, these bold, multi-dimensional graphics are durable and a cost-effective form of advertisement.

That’s just a sample of the exciting solutions we offer breweries and other companies. You can find the full menu when you visit speedpro.com, send us an email or call us at (844) 274-4784.

Let’s kick off the autumn season the right way: with a nice cold brew, and buckets of profits!

Back to School, in Focus: Exceed Expectations With SpeedPro Imaging

3-B School Bus WrapThe first day of school. It conjures up images of excitement for millions of students, and nervousness for an equal number of others. For parents, it’s the realization that summer is wrapping up and their tiny tot is yet another year older. School staff is refreshed and ready to welcome in a new batch of students.

Now is the perfect time to sit down and consider how SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leading printing and graphics franchise, can help boost your school’s spirit and coffers. Your local SpeedPro Imaging studio owner is ready and willing to make your hallways bold, colorful, inspirational, and awe-inspiring.

For example, let’s highlight the work of Ann Siburg. For Ann, the first day of school means new opportunities to reach out and improve her community. Ann is neither a teacher nor an administrator. In fact, she doesn’t work at the school. But her fingerprints can be found in schools across Scottsdale and Phoenix as an Arizona-based representative for SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leading printing and graphics franchise.

Ann is the co-owner and VP of marketing at SpeedPro Imaging of Scottsdale. For eight years, Ann and her team have supplied high-quality, big, bold graphics for various companies, organizations and individuals. However, Ann won’t think twice when you inquire about her favorite group of clients. “School’s, non-profits and churches,” says Siburg, without any hesitation.

Her primary focus specifically targets private and charter schools. “I’m a passionate advocate for private and charter schools, elementary through high school level,” says Siburg.

Unlike public schools, private and charter schools do not receive taxpayer funding. They’re left to their own devices to keep students educated. You don’t have to be a finance wizard to know operating a school isn’t cheap. From books to xylophones, operational costs rack up quickly for private and charter schools. That’s where Ann steps in to provide local schools with the best possible marketing tools – ones that won’t break their proverbial bank.

“We typically charge them half of what we charge retail. It’s our way to help local schools in need,” says Ann.

9-B School Window GraphicAs the industry leader of wide format imagery, SpeedPro Imaging’s wide range of services allows Ann and her team to be a one-stop shop for those schools to handle all of their graphics needs, whether administrators realize they need them or not.

“We do posters, banners, table tops and displays to encourage parents and citizens to give to the school,” says Ann. “It’s all about branding.”

Siburg has an eye for branding. She takes great pride in helping the schools realize the importance of marketing through graphic enhancements. Siburg says just the simple touch of adding dimensional lettering inside the front office, on vehicle decals and wraps, and on light pole banners along the roadway can make a major difference – and generate additional revenue – for the schools.

“It’s subtle, but critical, touches for private and charter schools that are necessary to attract enrollment,” says Siburg. “It’s all about their image, why they’re different and why they’re worth the cost for parents to send their kids there.”

One case study for Ann Siburg is a group of charter schools she joined forces with seven years ago. As they continue to open new academies, they always give Ann a call for their signage requests. Ann will provide mesh construction banners during the building phase, “Coming Soon” banners as the opening date approaches, and directional banners used to direct traffic as parents drop-off and pick up their children.

As time passes, Ann has picked up on one major theme with all of her school partners.

“They love their crests,” says Siburg. SpeedPro Imaging’s advanced production 23 Schoolstoolset, which now includes the HP UV Flatbed Printer, allows Ann to place crests on a variety of substrates. “I’ve put crests on steel to give it a pewter look. I’ve also done vinyl and gator foam. We provide the opportunity for schools to put crests in gyms, libraries, etc., all depending on how fancy they want to get and how much they want to spend.”

Ann’s hard work and dedication is paying off. In fact, she has even gone so far as to collaborate with a school to launch a postcard campaign. It involved sending out multiple postcards to parents detailing the school’s funding needs and how the parents could help. Ann says it was tough work, but it’s producing results.

“Last year, the school doubled its enrollment, says Siburg. “This year it appears they’re on pace to triple their enrollment.”

The approach Ann takes is simple – and it pays big dividends.

“I don’t have to sell you today, tomorrow or the next day,” she says. “If it takes a year or more, that’s fine. I’m all about the long-term relationship. Even if they hesitate or don’t need something immediately, these private and charter schools will keep you top of mind when they DO need help. As a salesperson, you can always pop in and see if the time is right.”

Ann Siburg is certainly teaching us the power of compassion and the power of local business owners doing great deeds in their community. We at SpeedPro Imaging are part of the same communities you call home. When our society thrives, we thrive.

We’re here to do what we can to help in students’ growth. Stop in and say hello. You can reach us online at speedpro.com, send an email, or call us at (844) 274-4784.

Now is the time to team up with SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leading provider of vehicle wraps (and fleet wraps), to turn your investment into something more than just a mode of transportation.

Americans love to drive. It’s embedded in our DNA. And we do a whole lot of driving. AAA’s latest survey determined the average American driver spends more than 17,600 minutes behind the wheel each year. That’s more than 290 hours on the road, or – to break it down even more – 12 days a year spent in a car.

While those drivers are focused on driving, their passengers may be looking for something to grab their attention. When it comes to grabbing and holding attention, nothing is more effective than billboards. The Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) says more than 95 percent of Americans are reached by media targeting vehicle drivers and passengers. And, check this out – the American Trucking Association recently found that 90-plus percent of respondents to a recent survey noticed images wrapped on vehicles. Furthermore, more than 95 percent of people who see a branded vehicle wrap remember what they saw.

Vehicle wraps work! And SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leading provider for vehicle wraps, specializes in high-quality, high-impact, and low-maintenance vehicle wraps. If you’re an owner of a business car and/or a fleet of vehicles, we urge you to call your local SpeedPro Imaging studio. Vehicle wraps offer:

  • Lowest cost per advertising impression among outdoor advertising media
  • Largest return on investment

Look at this report the OAAA released earlier this year. It is preparing for the incoming wave of driverless vehicles. Imagine the power of mobile advertising, when people are no longer distracted by driving! Unlike stationary billboards, vehicle wraps offer the advantage of mobility. You can strategically target specific demographic groups, including by routes and zip codes. You’re only limited to your imagination and the size of your gas tank.

Let’s not forget how vehicle wraps serve as a force field for your fleet’s paint job. Most of you have a form of shield protection on your mobile phones. Vehicle wraps operate in the same fashion. Wraps protect a car’s paint from debris, rocks and other items that always seem to leave a scratch. In turn, when you prepare to resell your vehicle, the vehicle wrap has protected its value.

Your fleet is ready to go to work. Let SpeedPro Imaging help convert it into a marvelous work of art. An investment in a vehicle wrap allows your business, large or small, to bring awareness to your brand for a significantly lower cost compared to other forms of advertisements.

Don’t take it from us – take it from a few of our satisfied customers:

Sal DeMartinis, Jr. – Co-owner, Planet Fitness

“John Barber and SpeedPro Imaging’s process for printing vehicle wraps is far superior to any other vendor I’ve worked with. My vehicles just pop! The colors are brighter and the detail is fantastic, it’s just night and day.  It’s so good I just want to go back and re-wrap my other vehicles. SpeedPro Imaging has been a great partner, I couldn’t be happier with John and the SpeedPro team.”

Melissa Thompson – Customer Service Supervisor, Enterprise Fleet Management

“There are a lot of moving parts to managing our customers’ fleets. Dan and SpeedPro Imaging make the vehicle wrapping process very easy. The quality is excellent; we don’t get any complaints from customers telling us the signage is peeling, bubbling or needs to be replaced. On the off chance something does go wrong, SpeedPro will fix it. As a result, we really enjoy partnering with SpeedPro for our customers’ vehicle wrapping needs.”

Jason Marquis – President, NPL Homecare, Inc.

“Vehicle wraps provide the best bang for my advertising buck and SpeedPro Imaging makes the entire process easy for me. I looked and shopped around at other places as part of my due diligence and quickly determined SpeedPro Imaging had the best value. I think their vehicle wraps are of excellent quality. SpeedPro Imaging has a good eye for the colors and the graphics to not make it too busy but enough to draw attention.”

Cost-Effective Vehicle Wraps – the #1 Marketing Tool for Service-Based Businesses

Return-on-Investment – (ROI) – the acronym that sends many marketers into a tailspin when clients ask for it.   That’s not the case at SpeedPro, particularly when it comes to cost-effective vehicle wraps – the fastest growing marketing tool available in today’s world for service-based business owners.

Speaking of ROI and metrics, the industry growth numbers speak for themselves when it comes to the impact cost-effective vehicle wraps are creating for local business owners.   Consider:

According to Traffic Audit Bureau for Media Measurement (TAB), vehicle wraps generate 30,000 to 70,000 views per day and revenues for the US Auto Wrap market are expected to explode in the next six years – rising from $480 million in 2016 to $1.3 billion in 2022.

Vehicle wraps generate up to 70,000 impressions per day.

  • 97% of drivers remember ads on commercial vehicles (Only 19% remember billboards)
