PRINTING RETAIL SIGNS IN DOWNTOWN SAN FRANCISCO

For brick-and-mortar stores, retail signage plays a crucial role for generating sales. It starts with exterior and window signs to lure passersby into the store. Once a prospective customer is in the store, in-store signage informs the prospect on current special promotions, store layout, and store policies; which are all pieces of information that prospects can use to make informed purchasing decisions. As a prospective buyer is about to make a purchase, point-of-purchase displays near the cash register can upsell the prospect on last-minute impulse buys.  

EXTERIOR SIGNS

Exterior signs that AlphaGraphics in downtown San Francisco can create are building signs, sidewalk signs, exterior backlit signs, and outdoor banners.

 

Building signs are signs on the exteriors of buildings, which contain the business name and logo.

 

Sidewalk signs (also known as A-frames), are portable frames that contain advertisements for the stores they are placed in front of. A sidewalk sign is known as an A-frame because when looking at it from the side, the frame resembles the capital letter “A”. The sides of the A create the front and back of the sign, which are where advertisements are placed. These signs are called “sidewalk signs” because they are placed on sidewalks, usually near store entrances.

 

Exterior backlit signs are signs on the building exterior walls and are backlit to provide visibility in the dark and to make the graphics more vibrant.

 

Outdoor banners are vinyl or mesh banners that are hung in front of stores. Popular outdoor store banners say “GRAND OPENING!”, “EVERYTHING MUST GO!”, “CLEARANCE SALE”, etc.

WINDOW SIGNS AND GRAPHICS

Window graphics are sticker-like vinyl graphics that adhere to windows. The types of window graphics that AlphaGraphics offers for brick-and-mortar retailers are frosted window images; perforated window graphics; and window clings and lettering.

 

Frosted window images are graphics that are made to look like frosted windows. An example of a frosted window image used by brick-and-mortar stores is an image of the business name and logo, which is frosted so that it stands out against the clear window.

 

Perforated window graphics are graphics that cover a large area of a window. They are perforated so that sunlight can still pass through it.

 

Window clings and lettering are smaller window graphics. Since they don’t take up a lot of window space, they are solid graphics, as opposed to perforated window graphics. Examples of window clings are: “Up To 50% OFF!”, “Clearance Sale!”, etc.

IN-STORE SIGNAGE

Below are different types of in-store signs that AlphaGraphics can create:

  • Tabletop signs containing promotional and/or vendor information
  • Shelving signs containing promotional and/or vendor information
  • Promotional posters
  • Wayfinding signs, that indicate directions to store departments and restrooms
  • Department signage
  • Restroom signage
  • Cashier signage
  • Fitting room signage

IN-STORE DISPLAYS

For in-store displays, AlphaGraphics can create banner stands and point-of-purchase displays.

 

A pull-up banner stand is a device that lays flat on the ground and has a retractable banner inside of it. The rolled up banner can retract to approximately 3ft wide x 7ft tall. Behind the banner, an extended 7ft pole is attached to the flat device, which the top of the banner can then hook onto, in order to keep it retracted. The retractable banner can contain graphics for special promotions.

 

Point-of-purchase displays are displays that usually hold smaller low-cost items. They are placed near cash registers to entice customers in line to purchase such items as impulse buys.
