Spring is here and it’s a great time to utilize outside marketing efforts for your business. If you’re working outdoors or holding an event, keep reading! Our marketing ideas for spring will promote your brand and increase awareness.
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.
Many of you have been eagerly awaiting days on the golf course. Spring is finally here! If you’re promoting your league, country club, or company, let us know.

Anyone else a fan of the movie Office Space? I thought of this quote recently when a friend confessed that she didn’t really know what our business provides. A printing company…what does that mean now days? I figured that other people must be wondering the same thing, so it’s time for a blog post review of our products and services. It’s been almost two decades since we started as a small commercial print shop with a printing press and a copier. How times have changed!

Those chilly mornings remind us that it’s time for backyard ice rinks! In our family, Thanksgiving weekend is the time that we secure the boards into the ground. Then when a hard freeze arrives, we’re ready to roll with the liner and water. That backyard rink is a labor of love, but it also brings us countless hours of outdoor fun.
If you have a backyard rink, we can print vinyl graphics to customize your ice! We can print team logos, family initials, or fun graphics. Installation is easy once your ice has frozen. We apply the graphics over the ice and then add a coat of ice to hold them in place. If your rink is in total shade, the graphics won’t create solar melt (soft spots) when the sun heats them. If your rink is in sun or partial shade, we can apply a layer of Solar Ice over the graphics to keep the surrounding ice cool and prevent solar melt.
We can also create and install graphics for larger indoor arenas. We can add the logos for recreational and school teams for special events or for the full season.
If hockey is part of your world and you want to customize your ice, reach out and we’ll work with you to create a fun and personalized project.
