Ego Presentation Makes a Big Splash

Ego modular displaysOn August 10th, Imagination Center hosted Mark Bric’s Ego modular display presentation. Sixteen attendees were able to see how easily these systems are erected, how lightweight the components were, and how they could create a huge impact at trade shows and large exhibit halls. This was the first of many seminars and information services that Imagination Center will be hosting to provide our customers with the information they need to make their message stand out.

During the seminar, attendees learned how modular systems like the Ego can greatly reduce costs for larger exhibits by reducing dramatically reducing shipping weight and crate size as well as reducing other costs such as set-up labor and drayage over conventional customer displays.

If there are seminars you would find beneficial, please let us know. If there is enough interest in the seminar, we will try to host it as a service to our clients and friends.

Reach Your Clients Outside with Flags, Tents & Canopies!

outdoor signage and canopiesSome of the best advertising venues are outdoors. Fairgrounds, parking lots, sporting events and other outdoor venues are a great place to get your message and name out to the public. Advertising outdoors can give you much more exposure than conventional indoor displays. Smaller indoor shows allow your product to be seen by hundreds versus small outdoor events that commonly have thousands of people.

Outdoor signage and canopies may be more affordable than you realize. Teardrop and feather flags range in price from around $ 300.00 for an 11 foot flag to $ 500.00 for 17’ tall flags. 10’ x 10’ canopies with dye-sublimation printing for the top and valance costs under $850.00, and side walls or half walls can be added to additional impact.

Outdoor Billboard Graphics and Indoor Repositionable Solutions

billboard vinyl repositionable solutionsCustomers are always looking for unique ways to affordably have their message heard. Two poster solutions which require no hardware are repositionable vinyl and adhesive back billboard vinyl.

Billboard vinyl is designed to be used with textured walls such as brick and wood. This offers short term solutions (3 to 6 months) for customers who want to have professional looking outdoor signage. The billboard vinyl is a thin vinyl with a very aggressive adhesive backing. It can be used to apply signage to surfaces that would typically require hardware to hang a sign. The graphics actually take the contour of the surface the sign is being applied to, almost looking like the sign was directly painted onto the structure.

Repositionable vinyl is the same technology used for producing NFL Fat Heads. This product offers exceptional print quality and we apply a textured laminate, giving the sign a more polished look. Repositionable Vinyl is backed with a low tack adhesive and is very easy to install. Once it is applied to the wall, it can be easily repositioned. It is semi-permanent solution. It will stay up as long as you desire, but when it is removed, it removes cleanly leaving little or no residue and will not damage the wall.

Call 301.695.0086 for more information on these and other graphics options!
