Just chatting with an old client who is planning a road trip across the USA later in the year with his 17 yo son (on a motorbike the lucky bugger!).
He’s purchased a large highway map – 2 metres x 1.4 metres – so he can put it on the wall and draw on it with a marker so he can plan out his trip.
We’re laminating it for him, so then he can draw on it, then wipe it off after as he changes plans over the next few months.
What a great idea.
We’re having a very busy time at the moment with our window signage – you can read more here.
We think we’ve finally figured out why – you see, window signage is a very easy and inexpensive way to promote your business.
When times get a little tougher, people get out and really look for what gives them the best value.
And window signage comes up trumps as a great, effective and cheap way to get your business know.
Give us a yell on 5591 6833 if we can help.

Such was the case last week when the Gold Coast’s own Jack Sinclair cycled into Surfers Paradise. Jack, at just 15, cycled under the Surfers Paradise sign to become the youngest person ever to cycle across Australia – an event captured by Ch 9 News, Ch 10, the Gold Coast Bulletin and the Gold Coast Mail.
A staggering 4,500 kms in 30 days!
We were thrilled to be asked to create signage, invitations and more for Jack’s ride – the large banner we printed was held up at the end and Jack rode through a specially made paper “Finish” banner to mark the end of this amazing ride.
Jack was jind enough to say some nice things about us at his Ride Celebration Dinner:
“Thanks to Keith and John and the guys at Laminating Specialists. The signage we had was fantastic and we had tons of people ask where we got them.”
Thanks Jack! And good effort!
We have some terrific deals on portable displays at the moment, from X banners to retractable banners.
I won’t mention prices here as there are plenty of variables – please call and we’ll be able to give you a price that’ll blow your socks off if you’re wearing them.
Absolutely awful day on the Gold Coast today with torrential rain and really strong winds.
As you can see from the photo right, John still traveled to work on his bike (the question is: Just how thoroughly does he read this site??!).
Not too many people ventured in today, but the emails and FTP uploads increased.
As you might know, we have clients from many, many miles away – with email and the phone we can service your printing needs from anywhere.
Give us a yell if we can assist.
I was talking with a mate of mine today who is a well-known marketing guy. He’d read the entry about the car window signage and I was asking his if he ever recommends things like that to his clients.
I was also interested to know if he thought the price was too high or too low.
His answer was fascinating:
1. He recommends everything to his clients - “Try everything!” he tells them.
He says some things work for some business, others don’t. He has 1 client who pulled in a huge client from a $30 ad in one of those free community newspapers. The same client gets no joy from a $4,000 ad in the big city papers.
“To be successful all you have to do is test and measure. If it works, keep doing it. if it doesn’t work, stop doing it. 95% of businesses have no idea what brings in the business,” was his advice.
All you need is the right customer to see you’re sign and it can explode your business.
2. Re our price being too high or too low – he told me it was a stupid question! (Bit rough I know!).
“Nothing to do with price. If the car window signage pulls me in $100,00 worth of profit a year then I’d happily pay $50,000 for the back windscreen to be covered.
If the window signage pulls in $1.50 in business then I wouldn’t want to pay $2 for it.”
“It has nothing to do with the price, it’s all about the value.”
Hope that’s been of interest.
A couple of days ago I mentioned the one-way car window signage we do for the back windows (and side) of cars, along with general windows (we do quite a bit for the sliding glass doors on many local factories – keeps the glare out).
As always, a picture is worth a thousand words, so I grabbed the camera and took a pic of the signage on my car so you can get a better idea of how it looks.
As you can see, you can have whatever image or graphic you want and use your car to its absolute best effect. The water skiing pics are of my kids.
One way vision for vehicles is priced at just $125.00 m2, so it’s very affordable.
Therefore for my Prado above, the side glass each side would retail at $60.00 inc gst (800 mm x 600mm) + fitting if required.
The rear glass $105.00 inc gst (1400mm x 600mm) + fitting.
Fitting costs around $100.00 per vehicle, however most handy type people would be able to lay the vision down successfully, the product is very forgiving in that if you don’t get it quite right you can lift it up and start again.
Hope this helps.
