Traffic With Banner Advertising
We are asked, periodically, where to purchase dye sublimation printed fabric display banners, roll up banners, retractable banners, pull up banners, advertising banners, display banners, or vinyl banners.
In the not-too-distant past, these items found mostly in the realm of your local sign company, who, lacking equipment to print full color banners, decals, or other signage, would go to their wholesale sources and “special order” these items for you. This created higher prices than you are paying today, believe it or not, even with inflation. You also needed to buy in large ทำป้าย quantities or the costs were unaffordable for most small companies.
One company became popular in the ’90’s, and those shops that could afford one – or the payments on one – a digital printer often did, and the revolution in the banner, sign, and sticker industry began. One-off full color banners, signs, large format decal, and posters, while still high priced, started to move toward affordable to smaller businesses who wanted the advantage of low quantity color prints in their indoor and outdoor advertising banners, window graphics, floor graphics, or signs.
Window decals printed for large store front windows began to pop up all over town, advertising specials or new products or new services without the pain of having to hang banners high on a wall. Perforated window graphics made it so you could see out the window from the inside or read the advertisement from the outside, all while circumventing the sign police (city regulators).
In 2002, Google launched its paid advertising program known as AdWords (the common term quickly became PPC, or “pay per click”), and suddenly the products that were the domain of sign shop locally became available nationally at prices that were lower than most of the local sign shops. A new breed of sign shop was born, one that catered to a growing online market – one which is still growing, by the way.
So now, things that were available at a sign shop with several layers of vendors or wholesalers in between cut out one or more layers of markups, and those who printed and shipped direct often won the battle of the lowest pricing, for better or for worse. Supply houses that were almost solely based online became the norm in the 21st century.
