Holiday Graphics: Optimizing the Seasonal Signage ShuffleOCTOBER 17, 2023| DillonShane
Envision this all-too-common scenario for retail stores across the country: a beautifully crafted Halloween display – which took significant time and resources to produce – will be taken down and discarded just a few weeks after it is installed. Then, the scramble to usher in the warmth of Thanksgiving will require another round of premium assets for production, only to be quickly overshadowed by the festive spirit of Christmas and all of the marketing campaigns that accompany it.
For many businesses, this end-of-the-year holiday season marks a very welcome and lucrative shift in consumer spending – momentum that is often targeted through digital marketing campaigns and thoughtful digital strategies. For physical storefronts, however, this shift in production can quickly become overwhelming – especially when every missed opportunity translates to potential lost revenue.
Concerns Over Volume and Costs
With window clings, floor graphics, point-of-purchase displays, and so many other touchpoints requiring frequent updates during this time of the year, stakeholders naturally become concerned over the costs associated with utilizing so many temporary solutions. This makes the choice of finding the right partner to produce these solutions a vital decision – one that could make or break the success of your seasonal marketing campaigns.
That’s where SpeedPro excels: understanding your needs as your trusted partner in order to produce the most effective holiday graphics possible. This means keeping our materials, labor, and costs at the optimal levels required for this type of seasonal work – work that will likely only exist for a month or two at most – to respect your budget while delivering the highest quality graphic solutions available.
To get your imagination churning, here are a couple of examples of how SpeedPro can help you leverage physical media for a successful round of end-of-the-year holiday campaigns:
Holiday Graphics for the Seasonal Shuffle
Window Displays: Utilizing cost-effective vinyl, these displays can be effortlessly switched out as one holiday transitions to the next. For instance, a spooky Halloween window sale can be replaced with a cozy Thanksgiving scene, ensuring your storefront remains fresh and inviting without straining your budget.
Floor Graphics: Installed with a durable but temporary adhesive, floor graphics excel at guiding customers to seasonal deals. Picture a trail of autumn leaves leading to a special Thanksgiving promotion, easily replaced by snowflakes directing shoppers to Christmas bargains.
Signs, Banners, and Flags: Banners are perfect for filling larger spaces with beautiful holiday graphics, while flags capture attention with their natural movement. Don’t forget to use your overhead space for high-flying Halloween ghosts or Santa’s sleigh to highlight flash holiday discounts when available.
Point-of-Purchase Displays: Made from versatile coroplast or foam core, point-of-purchase displays should be strategically placed to encourage impulse buying decisions. For example, a Thanksgiving-themed stand showcasing spiced treats can give way to a Christmas display highlighting festive ornaments or gift cards.
Illuminated Signs: Leveraging energy-efficient LED lights paired with translucent graphics, illuminated signs will infuse an affordably festive glow into any business. Imagine a glowing jack-o-lantern sign for October, swiftly replaced by a dazzling Christmas tree as December approaches.
Step-and-Repeat Backgrounds: Crafted from lightweight vinyl, these interactive backdrops are perfect for bridging the gap between a physical storefront and social media. A spookily-branded haunted house can transition to a pose-friendly winter wonderland with ease, driving engagement through the natural process of sharing photography taken in front of your store’s branded backdrop.
