Spring is a great time to advertise outdoors with vehicle wraps.
People are spending more time in the fresh air and the mood is decidedly more upbeat. Using your company vehicle as a moving billboard is an easy way to promote your brand. From small cars to large trucks, vehicle wraps really stand out.
It’s Simple to Use
You have to drive your vehicle…whether to the office, job site, or client meetings. Why not maximize that time by advertising while you drive?
Ordering is Easy
Our design software contains the exact dimensions of thousands of vehicles, from cars to vans to box trucks. You’ll meet with us in person or by email so we can understand your preferences and message. Then our designer will create a vehicle wrap in keeping with your logo, colors, and message. We guarantee it will be eye-catching and also something you’ll be happy to drive.
It’s a Cost Effective Solution
The average price for a vehicle wrap ranges from $1000-$5000….and they last up to 5 years! You can have a completely customized mobile ‘billboard’ for a few hundred dollars per year. Vehicle wraps can reach a wide audience with attention-grabbing graphics, even when parked!
Vehicle Wraps ARE Removable
Vehicle wraps seem very permanent. After all, they hold up to rain, snow, sun, and wind. Because our installers are trained experts, our vehicle wraps are installed properly and CAN be removed. If your logo changes – or your entire business changes – you can remove your wrap or replace it with a new design.

If you have an existing business, we can incorporate your logo and colors into your vehicle wrap. If you are starting something new, we can help you create a vehicle wrap and other marketing collateral that work together to promote your brand. We’d love to work with you on your next project.

Lawn signs are an affordable, highly-visible way to promote your company or event. Many landscapers and home contractors will use lawn signs to advertise to the rest of the neighborhood…and it works! You can also use lawn signs over and over again…cost effective and eco-friendly. If you’re promoting an event like a road race or a town fair, placing these signs around town will quickly spread the word.
Our banners have grommets for easy hanging and will hold up against wind, sun, and rain for many months. If you want to draw attention to a grand opening, hiring event, or special promotion, banners are a great fit.

Most shoppers in the US never thought they’d experience empty store shelves. My brother-in-law recently said, “It feels like war time”, referring to our grandparents’ stories of shortages during WW II. It seems that every industry has been affected. If you’re wondering what 2022 might bring, this video from TODAY gives a brief overview.
If you’re curious about the cause of these shortages, this article from The Atlantic gives a great explanation of the “veritable hydra of bottlenecks” that have resulted in delays, empty shelves, and rising costs.
On a recent episode of Fresh Air on NPR, Wall Street Journal columnist Christopher Mims explains how normally-efficient overseas shipping systems became overwhelmed during the pandemic. Spoiler alert…according to the author, “I think that the supply chain problems we’re having now, which are at the root of current inflation, are going to persist for a long time. And part of that is because we just have more demand for goods and that seems to be persistent.”
It doesn’t seem that purchasing will return to normal anytime soon. At least understanding the cause of the problem helps us keep perspective and – maybe – gain patience.
If there is a product in the printing industry that you can’t find, please let us know. We’ll do our best to contact multiple suppliers or develop a creative solution for you!
