BIG Printing

Did you know….


…that we have some new printing equipment here at Holmes? In late October we added a new large format printer to our production area. For those less familiar with the printing process, you may wonder, “So what does that mean?” Well, it means that we now have even more opportunities to create high quality, eye catching printed pieces on a wide variety of unique materials of ANY size! We have spent the past few months trying new techniques and developing new products to offer our customers, and we have only scratched the surface.

It’s easier to understand and get excited about the new capabilities when you start seeing the actual end results. We have printed vinyl banners, pull up displays, tabletop displays, car decals, custom clocks, branded wallpaper, and even our office Christmas tree! We love the versatility this equipment has, and how it broadens the ways we can take care of our clients and help set their business apart from the rest.

Many businesses are utilizing signage more, and in many different applications. Signs and displays are more effective as a piece of an entire marketing plan, ensuring the highest levels of brand exposure and promotion. They have become more than just standalone advertisements, and can be a tool used to drive existing and potential new customers to online resources for more information. For example, the use of QR codes on banners, posters, and even billboards is a great way to link to people to a landing page with videos, product images, or more details. This also provides more opportunities to measure the success of the signage and overall campaign.
