Standees: Your Most Effective Event Signage

When holding an event, you’ll want to grab your customers’ attention as quickly as possible. Wherever you are and whatever the event, a lot of people could walk by without paying much attention to your storefront or booth. Unless you use three-dimension signage–namely, standees! Standees help catch the attention of people passing by and immediately show off your brand. They are far more interesting to look at than regular, flat signage. And best of all, with Divvy, you don’t need to accept printing limitations on your standee!

Designing a Standee

Every standee begins with an eye-catching design. These displays are your chance to think outside the box. Don’t just go for the standard rectangular shaped sign. Incorporate odd shapes and colorful images. Make this design 100% yours. Using more creative shapes and brand elements strengthens the overall look of your business, particularly in a storefront.

When preparing to design, examine your space–whether in an individual store or at a trade show. Consider where you can place the standee to create the most drama, and design your display to fit that specific area.

What Materials Do We Use?

 

With Divvy, you don’t need to worry about altering your design to fit our print capabilities. We can print whatever you need on a wide variety of materials! This leaves you free to design as you wish to fit your business, not ours.

We choose light but sturdy materials to help the standee last once it reaches the franchise location. We want your piece to look good through the length of the whole promotion! Depending on our customers’ needs, we can print on any rigid, non-fragile material. For instance, we might create a three-dimensional piece for a client out of foamcore or falconboard. Both materials are good for layered, 3D images and for putting a display in front of a trade show booth.

Most often, we print on coroplast, a corrugated plastic material that holds up well, but also allows for bending and is easy to cut. Coroplast is a great material for outdoor signage, or for standees that need to handle a little wear-and-tear.

How to Best Use Standees

Remember: design a standee for the area it’s in. You’ll want the most eye-catching display possible without eating up a walkway or creating some other hazard.

Depending on your material, you can move a standee in and outdoors to catch the eyes of passersby on the street. Dynamic signage, after all, tends to seize attention, which will lead to customers and clients entering your store to learn more. Standees work far better than regular, flat signage. After all, even with a great design, flat images can lose a person’s attention quickly, or fail to grab it in the first place. But three-dimensional signs stand out (literally) in the physical world, not just on glass. That demands attention right away!

 

 

Tight on space? During events or in small franchise units, our standees combine stability with creativity and practicality. This sign hides a surprise behind its design: falconboard shelves! Here, you might store fliers or forms, handouts, and giveaway prizes.

We also make three-dimensional signage for any occasion or style. Every layer in the design keeps your eye on the sign, which keeps the customer engaged–unlike regular, static signs. Imagine how effective this might be on your standee!

Make Your Ads Stand Out with 3D Signs

Divvy by Alexander’s has the capability to create amazing signage for your business needs. However, it gets better than just brilliant printing or a spectacular finish. Divvy can also create eye-catching and beautiful 3-D signage for your brand, product, or event. Your designs can literally pop off the wall!

However creative the design, two-dimensional promotions risk becoming static. Flat images without texture or extra dimension are more easily ignored, unless they’re enormous. But not everyone will have the budget for massive wall banners to seize their customers’ attention.

Letting clients and customers interact with your signs and advertisements, however, helps your brand and message stick in their memories. 3-D signs stand out above the rest with eye-catching oomph you need to showcase your product at its best.

Layered 3-D Signage

Sometimes the most striking three-dimensional signs are also the simplest. For example, this design for Port of Subs uses black foam core to make images and text more noticeable.

Each piece here is laminated to keep the whole image high-quality. Plus, the foam core is light but sturdy enough to last once it reaches the franchise location, no matter the length of this promotion. Every layer in the design keeps your eye on the sign, which keeps the customer engaged–unlike regular, static signs.

 

Similarly, this sign created for Divvy prints right onto a second, textured layer to help our name stand out above the rest of the image. You can’t help but notice the way a name pops on a sign like this!

Space-saving Design

Plus, as always, Divvy’s products are easily applied and easily removed for every individual franchise. Divvy makes it easy for your franchisees to make a 3D design like this fit their location and needs.

Tight on space? During events or in small franchise units, you can also use our 3D designs to combine stability with creativity and practicality. This sign hides a surprise behind its design: falconboard shelves! Here, you might store fliers or forms, handouts, and giveaway prizes.

Whether for an event or for your office space, 3D signage is far more engaging to your customers than flat, static boards or prints. Choose an extraordinary advertisement for your product or company today! We’d love to hear from you. Contact us for a free consultation.
