Various Types Of High Visibility Signage

Various Types Of High Visibility Signage

On a crowded office block only those companies that are able to stand out from the crowd will form a lasting impression with both their customers and passing foot and road traffic. Almost every company realises that their competitive edge can only be maintained if they can assure top of mind awareness with their target audiences and one of the most effective ways of doing this is through the production and proper placement of high visibility signage.

The technology used to produce signage is today far in advance of that which was available only a decade ago.signageSignage can be designed to take advantage of full colour printing on PVC or nylon and the high quality printing processes in user today mean that the images and copy that appear on the signage are crisp and clear, enhancing visibility and retention of the information contained on the display units. Some types of signage are not aimed at conveying information about products, but reinforce the corporate image. One example of this is the use of nylon flags at the entrance to a company. These flags are extremely hard wearing and weather resistant and the full colour printing process means that they are both highly visible and attractive.

There are also a large number of signage options for those companies wishing to enhance their visibility at trade shows and exhibitions. This type of high visibility signage usually consist of PVC or nylon banners of different types, but can also consist of show stands and other marketing devices used to increase visibility. Banners for use at shows such as trade shows and exhibitions are usually ordered in bulk. There are no limitations to the number of banners that can be ordered, just as there is no limitation on the size of the banner that can be produced using modern printing technology.

Double sided pull up banners are today possible. These pull up banners feature a pull up banner that can be unrolled from each side of the base. Size is no longer an issue due to the printers that can today continuously print large sheets of nylon or PVA. In the case of high visibility signage such as building wraps the banner is supplied with small holes in it to avoid wind damage and also to reduce the weight of large sections of banner.

There are other types of high visibility signage that are available to marketing departments that can be produced extremely quickly at a low unit cost. These include wall and hanging banners which are manufactured from quality hard wearing PVC. These banners can be stitched with a fold on the seam designed to allow an aluminium pole to be inserted, ensuring that the banner hangs straight once it is set in place.  High visibility signage can also form an integral part of display stands which are manufactured to the clients’ requirements. These display stands are ideal for use at trade shows and allow the company to project an air of professionalism at all times. The display stands also allow the company to display products and merchandise in a way that makes them highly visible to passing foot traffic and allows easy access to allow for product demonstrations.

Most marketing departments make use of highly visible signage in the form of roll up or pull up banners due to the fact that they are both highly portable and easy to erect. The average size pull up banner can easily be transported to a trade show or exhibition in the boot of a family sedan, making them ideal for use by even inexperienced marketing employees.

Signage For Multiple uses

Signage For Multiple uses

In today’s highly competitive business environment every organisation has toensure that its products stand out from the crowd. One of the ways to do this is through the clever design and intelligent placement of signage in a variety of different settings.

signageSignage can be used at trade shows, exhibitions and at various points of sale. Point of sale signage consisting of pop up banners is especially popular for the marketing of new products. These pop up banners, manufactured from PVC material or nylon have built a loyal following for a number of reasons. The reasons for the popularity of pull up banners is due to the facts that they are extremely easy to transport, incredibly durable and can be set up by even the most inexperienced of marketing employees.

Signage consisting of pop up banners is also extremely popular. These banners are constructed of hard wearing nylon material and are designed to be self erecting once they have been removed from their covers. In order to transport the banners of for storage they are easy to return to a compact form with a simple twist which causes them to fold up on themselves. High visibility signage that is suitable for use at trade shows and exhibitions also includes hanging banners and wall banners that are designed either with eyelets to allow ski rope to be threaded through the banner for hanging or stitched seams that allow for the insertion of aluminium rods that keep the banners in perfect alignment when they are hung.

New advances in colour banner printing mean that signage is becoming more inventive as time goes on. Today specialised printers can produce banners of almost any length.  Building wraps are amongst the most impressive signage that can today be viewed covering scaffolding and building exterior around the world. The advances in signage colour printing also mean that weather resistant printing in brighter colours and with a higher definition is now a reality.

The Editor’s Note

About 60% of South Africa’s Blue Crane population resides in the Western Cape. Here the birds favour farmlands, particularly pastures and wheat plantations, above the indigenous Fynbos habitat. But climate change threatens this unusual success story. The western parts of our country are expected to be most hard hit by the extreme weather conditions that climate change brings, and existing agricultural practices could become economically unviable, with detrimental effects for the cranes.

Kerryn Morrison manages the ICF/EWT Partnership for African Cranes and, together with her passionate team of crane conservationists, is carefully monitoring the Western Cape’s Blue Cranes so that we can react to the signs of climate change well in advance of it becoming an insurmountable problem.

When I asked Kerryn how she came to be so passionate about cranes, she said they are a perfect flagship species that can be used to highlight environmental issues to people and so change environmentally destructive behaviour. Kerryn was just four years old when her nursery school teacher predicted she would work with animals, and she has never wanted to be anything other than a conservationist. Her dedication is not without reward, and she has received broad acclaim for her exceptional dedication to crane conservation, and is recognised as being instrumental in combating the trade in cranes that takes place throughout Africa on a daily basis. We are extremely proud of being able to say that Kerryn has grown her career with the EWT since 1995.

We will be celebrating the success of our crane conservationists on World Environment Day, on 5 June, with this year’s theme being ‘Your Planet Needs You – Unite to Combat Climate Change’. Learn more about this day and other EWT climate change projects by entering our online competition , open only to our loyal supporters, and stand in line to win a fabulous getaway to a South African destination.
