Spotlight your Special Event with Custom Wall Graphics

Everyone’s seen them, those walls behind the stars at every red carpet event. With every step the rich and famous take, photographers capture their images and the image behind them featuring a sponsor’s logo. The step and repeat wall gets its name from its original use as a backdrop for photo ops at Hollywood events like the Oscars. As stars walked past photographers, each one would pause for a photo shoot. The star would “step” to just the right place, a photo would be taken, and then the next star in line would be asked to “repeat” the process. Step and repeat walls are usually printed with a repeating image of sponsors’ logos. An event with multiple sponsors might include several logos. Charities sometimes use wall graphics for their events as a way of recognizing contributors.

But the famous aren’t the only ones worthy of a great photo opportunity. These step and repeat walls or banners are now staples at events around the world. From charity golf scrambles to summer concerts, event planners everywhere are including step and repeat walls in their decor. You can turn your event into a VIP experience for guests, and give them the star treatment, with your own custom printed wall graphics.

Defines the Event and the Event Space

Custom-printed walls allow you to control your event’s space and appearance.

Using the media wall printing technology, your custom wall graphics print can be printed onto removable vinyl and installed directly onto the walls at an event site, or vinyl or fabric walls printing  can be created and mounted onto portable frames.

Not only do these graphic walls provide a custom visual backdrop for your event, but they can also serve to define and divide your event space. Just as the step and repeat walls in Hollywood guide stars down the red carpet, so you can guide your guests into your next event. Custom printed fabric walls can divide a space or hide an unattractive feature in a rented event space. For outdoor or combination indoor and outdoor events, step and repeat walls can help contain crowds and keep your brand on display.

Set the Stage for Selfies

Do you remember the photo backdrops from your high school dances? They might have been pre-printed on cardboard or painted by the art students and were usually designed to match the dance’s theme. Or maybe you’ve seen them in old photos of kids with Santa with the fake snow and workshop in the background. Well, media walls have come a long way since then! Now you can choose your graphics and have them custom printed. Your style and design can be temporarily applied to the walls of your event location or printed on portable fabric or vinyl. Treat your guests to a one-of-a-kind image for their personal photo ops. Using custom media wall printing, wedding guests can pose with the happy couple and charitable events can leverage the power of selfies to get the word out. Large or small, you can share your brand or your idea with your guests and their social media followers.

Catch Your Busy Customers’ Attention with a Custom Car Wrap

Do you know where your customers are right now? Do your customers know how to find you? More and more, customers are making their purchase decisions while they are out and about. If you had a customized car wrap for your business, your advertising message could be there with them.

Staying Front of Mind with Consumers on the Move

An increasing number of purchasing decisions are made by consumers who are away from home. As consumers live and shop more in the moment, marketers need fresh ways to reach them. Purchasers today consult their smartphones  to locate nearby retailers and compare products while in store. To be front of mind with these consumers, you need to have an online presence, and you need to be front and center when they are away from home.

Custom livery wraps for your company’s fleet are an incredibly effective way to carry your message to customers throughout the day. Purchasing billboard space along a busy thoroughfare is costly. Having a logo-wrapped business fleet will successfully put your vehicles to work, even when they are stuck in traffic.

Use Out-of-Home Advertising to Catch Your Customers’ Attention

Along with digital advertising, out-of-home (OOH) advertising it taking up a bigger piece of marketing budgets each year. If you were not convinced that outdoor advertising was important to your business’ marketing strategy before the recent Pokémon Go craze, you should be convinced now. Retailers who were fortunate enough to be near a popular Poke Stop were able to cash in on a steady stream of new customers. Other marketers are finding their own way to catch on to the craze.

Now is the time to be proactive with your marketing. Rather than waiting for your increasingly mobile customers to find you, find and reach them with custom graphics for your commercial vehicle.

Poke Stops aren’t the only thing that brings people together. Festivals, football matches, parades, and conventions are all places where your customers are gathered. With a vinyl car wrap promoting your business, you can reach these customers by bringing your advertising to them. Just find a nearby parking space and put your vehicle to work.

Car Wraps Provide Advertising Flexibility for Your Fleet

The team at Twiisted Media can help you to create a custom commercial vehicle wrap  displaying your logo and contact information, making it easy for your customer to connect with you while they are on the go. A complete wrap for your fleet vehicles will preserve their original paint and communicate your brand to every passerby.  With a partial wrap, you can brand each of your company vehicles with your logo. A partial wrap is also a great way to advertise a short-term promotion or seasonal event.  When you are ready for a change, your car’s wrap can be easily removed and replaced.

Stay Nimble

Today’s marketers know that to be effective, you have to stay nimble. A billboard advertisement may only reach customers once a day. When you wrap your car, you have a movable billboard that can reach customers throughout the day.

This month, every business wanted to be where the Pokémon were found. Next month, where will your customers be? Wherever they are, you can be there too with a custom commercial vehicle wrap for your business fleet.

Rally for Good

The Diamond Rally is a fabulous annual event that combines a great scenic drive with even greater causes. Invited supercar and luxury car participants will travel the Sea to Sky Highway #99 from Vancouver to Whistler. The Diamond Rally Charity Challenge allows teams to show support for their favorite charity along the way. To join in the Charity Challenge, participants are asked to make a donation or raise funds to be paid directly to the charity of their choice. The team can then have a custom decal created for their charity and display the emblem on their car during the rally. Corporate driving teams may also display the decals of corporate sponsors. Of course, every super or luxury car will have its own individual look on display as well.

Looking good—while doing good—will have its reward at this event. Trophies will be awarded for the Best Livery/Decal for both corporate and private participants. Twiisted Media is proud to be an official supplier of corporate and charity decals for this year’s Diamond Rally.

Care and Maintenance of Your Vinyl Vehicle Wrap

To take care of your wrapped vehicle, clean the exterior regularly. Just like with a painted finish, dirt left on the vehicle will degrade the coating over time so regular cleaning is essential. Inspect your vehicle frequently for particularly damaging grime such as bird droppings or tree sap. 3M advises that you protect your vehicle’s wrap by storing it indoors or under cover to avoid sun and other environmental damage. As the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

IMG_7633.jpg

Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Some cleansers contain ingredients that can damage your commercial vehicle wrap’s finish. Don’t use cleansers containing harsh chemicals on your wrap and always rinse your vehicle with lots of water after washing. In particular, don’t expose your car’s wrap to cleansers that are oil based or contain acetones, citrus, thinners, M.E.K., or toluene. Never use brushes or cleansers containing abrasives on your car’s vinyl wrap. Avery Dennison’s Graphics Solutions further recommends that you always spot check any cleanser in an inconspicuous spot before using it on your entire vehicle.

Waxes too can contain harmful ingredients that can cause damage or stains.  Avoid petroleum based waxes, waxes with abrasives, or colored waxes.

Apply a Gentle Touch

You may wash your vehicle using a touch less car wash, by hand, or with a power washer. However, if you do use a power washer you should keep the power and temperature settings low. This article at Sign Digital Graphics offers some great tips for power washing truck fleets. Whatever method of washing you use, care should be taken not to snag the edges or angles of your vehicle’s wrap. Any peeling, snag, or tear should be repaired right away. Otherwise, the force of wind pressure will rip the tear even further the next time you drive your vehicle.

Matte and Textured Vehicle Wrap Care

If your vehicle’s commercial wrap is textured or has a matte finish, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning. Waxes may adhere to a matte or textured finish unevenly and alter its appearance. For a textured wrap, you need to not only avoid waxes and polishes but also cleaning agents that include these ingredients as an additive. Scratches and swirls on a matte finish are difficult to repair or remove, so always use premium microfiber cloths. When selecting a detergent or finishing product, use one made by 3M or other manufacturers designed specifically for the care of matte finishes.
