Grab attention with building wraps

Building wraps

Building wraps are a fantastic way to get your brand noticed. There are so many reasons why you should wrap your building.

So why you should go down the line of wrapping your building. The main reason is quite simple and this is “To get your brand noticed” and make it more successful. Be the purple cow, that’s how you will get noticed.

By wrapping a building you are making a loud statement to your competitors. You mean business. It is a great way for advertising and it will definitely catch the eye of an potential customer. If customers don’t come in straight away don’t worry you’ve planted a seed in their head. They will remember you.

I read an article from “Fabric Graphics” it explains how one company went through the process of wrapping a building and how they achieved it with no mistakes, what they got out of it, how to deal with their customers needs and what it can do for the growth of their company. I have attached a link to their article. If you are only new to this Industry or even if you are experienced, this article is well worth the read.

What are the benefits of branded workplaces

What are the benefits of wall graphics and window frosting in the office environment ? There are lots of great benefits to having a well-designed office space that opens up the mind and allows inspiration to flow. Keeping your employees motivated, inspired and content can be hard at the best of times but, if your environment can work with you, it can keep motivation and productivity at it’s peak.

Wall Graphics

To give an example, let’s start with wall graphics in a board room with no windows. Boring and drab springs to mind and tends to make some people snooze through a sales meeting.
Now imagine that same room overlooking the skyline of New York, Hong Kong, Dublin or even a tropical rainforest in a high resolution image that makes you feel like you are actually in the forest. You can almost smell the damp air of the rain forest.

Window Frosting

The modern office trends of the last few years tend to favour open space; light, fresh, and airy. With the use of lots of glass walls and doors on boardrooms, meeting room, individual offices and even canteens.

There is still a need for some form of privacy whilst still maintaining the amount of light that spreads through the office space. This is where window frosting or window manifestations come in. The days of having the glass etched and blasted are no more as it is permanent and too costly. Window frosting is much more cost-effective and looks the same as the permanent frosted glass. The material is a of a very high standard and it can be removed and redone if necessary. It can also be printed with any image or pattern and can be cut to almost any shape.
