Richmond, TX – Spotlight: Franchise Multi Tenant Sign | Front Row Signs News
Franchise owners are great business for sign companies as many of them have a plan to open multiple locations. Many franchise owners realize the potential for advancement and success in Fort Bend and Harris Counties. They are opening new stores all over our area and expect quick turnarounds from building the location to acquiring their permits and signs. We know our local area and work towards helping our local economy. This allows us to turn around jobs quicker than some of the larger national companies in our area. Eye Lab, our latest client, was opening a new location in the Parkway Lakes area of Richmond. They were very happy that we could not only turn around the time to print and install their sign quickly but the cost was agreeable as well.
Most franchises have specific regulations and brand guidelines to follow. These are not suggestions. They need to be exact from the text or logo placement to the colors. They also usually, but not always, will provide the print ready files. If they do not, you may need to get multiple approvals from the franchise owner, the HOA, the city or county and corporate. This can add a lot of time sending designs back and forth. We familiarize ourselves with all the guidelines and branding to diminish the chance for error.
Even though the design came from corporate, there were a few different people who needed to sign off on the final design. Having many different opinions to contend with is not ideal but sometimes necessary in this situation. Ensuring the correct final version is moving forward to the printer is imperative. To our advantage, we have an online portal system in which the latest design version is easily uploaded for the client to approve or ask for changes right there within the portal. This eliminates the confusing back and forth of emails and trying to figure out which version is the latest and what new changes may need to be applied.
The multi tenant sign was double sided, as most are, so we printed the design twice. We used HP Prime Gloss Air GP for the vinyl on the digital print and HP Gloss Polymeric Overlaminate. We then contour cut the print, weeded out the negative vinyl and taped with transfer tape. Since the center was new, we did not have to worry about removing existing vinyl.
We know that our clients appreciate a quick turnaround time on their signs. We work hard every day to diminish the stress that comes along with opening a business. Give us a phone call today and we will show you how we can help keep your sign experience a good one. 832-222-9385Back
