A single vinyl decal gets exposure for as long as the vinyl decals last on any ride!
A mutual relationship. But why seed a garden with only one seed! Thinking of getting a few vinyl decals for your ride, maybe a couple of small decals for the back or side windows? Well, that’ll work, and it’s great. You might be testing out the water with a toe. But the water is warm, hot actually—might burn the toe! Like getting in early on those stocks that are sure to soar (or Bitcoin), you’ll want to get as many decals as you can and pass out to all that support you.
The customers that support you are the only reason you have business, never forget it! Provide them excellent service and products in return for loyalty, and both client and merchant share a beneficial relationship.
Consider, the typical vinyl we use, Oracal 651 series 6-year, for most applications. These decals, when applied properly, will last for up to 6 years, and as I have personally seen, much longer!
So, one single decal, that’s great. Exposure, advertisement, branding for six years or so. But what if you regularly pass out decals to your clients, over the course of years? That becomes hundreds of years worth of exposure, and vinyl decals are relatively cheap if bought in bulk.
So why this article today? Well, I had some customers order some tattoo shop decals, nothing large, just two 12-by-4-inch, bright yellow-green decals, probably for the side windows of a vehicle and a little advertising. And you know me, and this is a graphics blog, I’m always looking for something to write about. Now combine the thought of that, with my drive to Farmington, NM today. I saw many vehicles with decals (I know I’m probably biased, because I’m the decal guy I’m always looking) and noticed how some stand out better than others, and I got to thinking about how long they’d been applied. Anyway, I saw some that were quite faded and wondered how many people have seen it over the years, or used it as a reminder, and how word of mouth—if you treat your clients right!—works like a snowball going down Everest. And I compounded the idea—numbers spun round in my head making me dizzy—of having one for each customer, compounded results over the long term, excellent advertising and exposure—for pennies!
Treat your clients right and most will be more than happy to support you!
In conclusion, if your are thinking of dipping those toes in the hot water, great. Head over to Full Intensity Grafx, enter the custom text needed, choose a vinyl color, a font style and decal size, and you’ll have the decals at your door in a few days. Huge discounts for quantity, or ask me about a custom decal quote. Then apply them. But don’t wait too long if you’re thinking of benefiting from possible compounded exposure, great advertisement for years! Like buying Bitcoin, or the alt’s, what’s worth a little now will pay off in the long run, even up to 6 years later, or more.
Just continue to be the best you possibly can for your clients!
Before heading out for the night, one final word. I want to humbly say thank you to each and every client that has been with us for months, years, or even the entire two decades Lorena and I have been in business selling graphics. I want to continue to do my part by providing you with extra freebies as often as I can, quality vinyl, the lowest prices on decals and graphics that I can manage and still feed the kids, plus fast and personal customer service that never makes you feel like a number!
PS. I recently hired out for some graphics work myself, I needed a book cover designed for my novel, one that I’ve been working on for two years. And the company, I won’t name names, made me feel tiny, like a number. We all matter, and I never want to treat any of my clients in that manner!
