Let Your Windows Do The Talking: Our Retro Lobby Graphics

The Completed Look

The Completed Look

Today I am excited to share an in-house project with you. It’s always difficult to find time to do projects for ourselves (that whole “shoemaker’s kids go barefoot” thing), but we managed to pull something great together to show off the potential of windows. You already have them, now let’s use them!

The Location: Flyway Signs
The Focus: Windows in the front entry way
The Solution: Perforated vinyl printed with our wide format latex printer

For this project we used a 50/50 perforated vinyl. This means that the graphics that are printed look fantastic (check out that color saturation in the yellows and reds!!), but you can still see out of the window from the other side. It is nearly invisible from the back side.

Perforated vinyl serves two purposes: 1) it utilizes the otherwise unused window space to reach your customers, and 2) it creates privacy – you can see out, but they can’t see in. Perforated window vinyl is often used for vehicles, but why not for storefronts and offices?

 

Now you see her...

Perforated Vinyl shows your graphics on one side of the window, but is invisible from the other side. Now you see her…

Now you don't!

Now you don’t!

What could your windows say to your customers? Contact Flyway Signs and let your windows do the talking. We’re here to help!

He’s back!

For those of you that did not know, Jeff Liddle our senior sign consultant, had been off of work after needing emergency surgery. Here is what Jeff had to say:

“I am glad to be back to work after what seemed like too long of an absence.  On April 24th I went to the walk in clinic with abdominal pain which I thought was flu related.  After going through a battery of tests including a CT scan they discovered I had a blockage in my system.  They performed immediate surgery, during the surgery they removed 4” of my small intestine, my appendix and through this process they discovered I have Chrons Disease.  I was out of work for almost 4 weeks, 9 of the days were spent in the hospital and the remainder at home recovering.  I am now almost fully recovered with the surgery and am now in the process of learning more about Chrons Disease and treatment options.  I sincerely thank my Flyway Signs & Lighting family, my BNI group & customers for all the well wishes throughout the recovery process.”

We are so glad Jeff is back to work! Be sure to say Hi to Jeff if you see him!
