It’s that time again– Get ready for Back to School & other retail graphics!

Posted by:

While you may think it’s too early for “back to school” talk – the school year just ended, right? For everyone in the retail world, this is the time of year to gear up autumn sales and promotions.

If you haven’t already secured your customers’ back to school signage, you should be grabbing those orders now!

Let SignCenter help you win these orders by offering more than just fabulous looking wholesale prints and graphic solutions. We also offer kitting and fulfillment!

There are a huge variety of retail graphic opportunities. Banners, wall signage, clings, hanging signs, window graphics, and posters. These are just several of the items that can be printed.

It is ideal to order as many print pieces as possible from the same printer as this will guarantee color accuracy and consistency in print quality from item to item.

More importantly, your customer’s branding will be consistent from store to store. Fortunately, if you’re one of our print resellers, this is a non-issue because we print everything that was listed and more!

For print resellers and brokers, knowing what materials to specify and how to use them is critical for a successful retail graphic campaign. In many cases, there could be cost-effective new media solutions that your customers have not explored.

If you are not sure about the best media for a particular job, please contact us. Our customer service representatives are very experienced in this market and are here to help.
