Posted by Frank Murch | Apr 16, 2015 9:53:00 AM

The glass in front of your commercial space may be the most valuable advertising space you have!  Why, well position is a big part of it.  The area at eye level is where your customers and prospects are looking.  If they see your advertising, they will remember it.  They also “trigger” on products and services they want, but have not yet quite acted on. The impulse buy triggers them to walk in and ask. That glass surface also uses a substrate or base you already have – that makes it cost effective.

3 Different Window Signs typescut vinyl on glass

There are three types available to you: stickers, Pref, and cling.

Window Stickers or window decals

Window graphics can cover large areas and can last as long as your tendency. Idea for your logo, name and standard products they are the main stay of signage. Use window lettering to add your hours of operation, your after hours phone number and you have a very effective type of signage.  Not using your front and street facing windows is a big mistake, you have the space, and not using it cost you customers and money. It is a no brainer 

Window Pref

Pref is actually perforated vinyl. Full of small openings it does a couple of very interesting things:  From the side is blocks some of the sun, like a polarized film, but still allows you to have nearly full vision out. From the outside traffic sees your advertisement, but can not see in. Ideal for doctors offices, waiting rooms, restaurants, and many other businesses.Rita-example

Window Cling

Cling is named appropriately, it “clings” to a window using a static charge. It is a soft vinyl and can be removed with a fingernail. It is common for retail fast food to promote specials and new product introductions. Advertise for 30-45 days and then it is gone. Christmas, a sale, a closeout, events, use it for any temporary purpose. The change attracts attention and keeps traffic looking at your windows – It is idea to “roll in the new” and then it is gone freeing the window for the next big thing.
