Quick-change Retail Graphics? You’ve Got Options

Retail promotions can change in the blink of an eye, which means you need a quick turnaround for replacement graphics that make an impression. Since the graphics could be applied by anybody from the summer intern to a pro installer, it’s important that the products are easy to handle and properly protected.

Check out some of these proven applications that offer alternatives for displaying retail images, especially when the project requires speed, protection, easy removal and, of course, high quality:

Clearly, There Are Alternate Ways to Display Images: If you have been looking for new ways to display your graphics, why not turn your posters into instant window graphics? With LexJet CrystalClear-X Removable Adhesive, you can front-mount graphics with bubble-free ease. If your plans change within the first 12 hours of application, you can reposition the graphics up to 10 times. There is no residue left behind, making removal a breeze. LexJet CrystalClear-X Removable Adhesive can be used with images you are already creating on aqueous, latex, solvent or eco-solvent printers.

4 Ways to Step Up Your Floor Graphics

Floor graphics aren’t just for retail anymore. They provide an easy way to create ambiance for special events, turn bland walkways into brilliant displays, and even provide directional signage in the most unusual places. Here are a few examples from customers who have stepped outside the point-of-purchase box:

Wicked-cool Décor: Mark Hawkins of Mark Hawkins Photography took the “Wicked” theme of a recent fundraiser gala to new heights. Hawkins was tasked with bringing the world of Oz to life, and he turned to LexJet Print-N-Stick Fabric to create graphics such as the iconic Yellow Brick Road, informational signage and what looked to be the poor Wicked Witch squashed by one of the bars. With its versatility, spot-on colors and ease of install and removal, Print-N-Stick was the go-to choice to create fun, customized graphics for the event.

Customer Service Pick-Me-Up

I am not a coffee junkie. I don’t have to have a caffeine blast first thing in the morning, though I sometimes enjoy a nice cup of joe from Starbucks or Einstein Bros. When I get that craving for Starbucks, I stop by this one particular location that takes me on a scenic route to work. In other words, it’s not exactly on my way. I stop there because the people are always cheerful, even at 6:30 in the morning (I guess it makes sense when you work at Starbucks!).

One morning on one of my coffee excursions I noticed that Starbucks happened to be promoting the Seasonal flavors of their instant coffee, Via. There are four different flavors, but they only offer them in single flavor packs of six.

I mentioned to the drive-thru cashier that I would be interested in a 3 pack, but not having tasted any of the flavors yet I wasn’t quite willing to commit to a 6 pack. Instead of simply saying, “Sorry! I wish I could help,” she asked her manager if it would be possible to put together a variety pack for me.

In order to provide a good customer experience, the manager said yes. I expected to pay for four individual packets, but the cashier rang it up at the cost of a 6 pack and used a $1 off coupon that I didn’t even know about.

It wasn’t until I got to the office and looked in the box that I realized the variety pack she put together for me consisted of two of each flavor for a total of eight packets for the price of six and $1 off! Now that’s what I call taking care of the customer!
