Building wraps for the ultimate in outdoor advertising

Building wraps for the ultimate in outdoor advertising

When it comes to outdoor advertising, building wraps have it all “wrapped up”.  The sheer size of building wraps dwarfs any other form of advertising display including those huge billboards on motorways. Building wraps can be seen from a great distance. They are literally unmissable and guaranteed to capture the attention of everyone in the vicinity, whether motorist or pedestrian. This fact alone makes building wraps very attractive as a means of launching a new product, reinforcing brand image or promoting marketing messages.

Building wraps have other uses apart from promoting marketing messages, namely protection and aesthetics. Building wraps are often employed on grandstands at outdoor entertainment and sporting events to protect spectators from strong wind and advertise the event at the same time.

Another common use of building wraps is for aesthetic reasons, mainly in the construction industry to disguise scaffolding and construction sites. Construction site building wraps often use graphics which depict an image of what the renovated or finished building will look like and the organisations involved in the building project. They thus serve as a means of promotion for the architect, construction firm and scaffolding supplier concerned. The main function of building wraps however, apart from aesthetic reasons, is to generate interest in the development project and create a desire to rent or buy units in the finished building.

Superchrome –specialist building wraps printing services

Superchrome, a major large format print supplier in the UK , offers a complete service for building wraps from the initial concept to production, installation and even removal when the construction project is completed or advertising campaign has run its course.

Superchrome utilises the latest in digital technology and wide format printing machines to create innovative cutting-edge building wraps with stunning graphics that are bound to attract attention and generate interest in the construction project or product being advertised. Building wraps are printed using solvent inks for photo-realistic quality and increased resistance to fading, to ensure they retain their vibrant colours longer.

At Superchrome we are able to produce building wraps to suit any purpose or specification, whether the client wants  to cover just one wall or an entire building,.  Our building wraps are made from fire rated mesh and comply with Fire Regulations and Health & Safety requirements for outdoor displays in public spaces.

Mesh PVC is the preferred choice for extra large applications such as building wraps where safety and wind-load are a primary consideration. Small perforations in the mesh fabric allow air to flow through the material, which reduces the load placed on the building wrap itself as well as the structure or building it is attached to. PVC mesh is also very durable and can last up to two years outdoors, depending on the degree of exposure to the weather.

Hoardings get your message across

Hoardings are usually erected around the perimeter of building sites to promote the construction firm, architects and others involved in the project and often display graphics which show what the finished building will look like. Hoardings have also proved to be a very effective means of advertising, providing large areas of space for distinctive graphics and marketing messsages aimed at passing drivers and local pedestrians.

The high impact they create make hoardings one of the preferred outdoor advertising media to launch a new product or announce the opening of a new local retail store. Their bold slogans and vivid striking, colours are designed to grab the attention busy passersby. Advertising agencies sometimes go a step further, employing controversial imagery and wording in the design of hoarding displays to provoke a reaction and encourage debate.

Superchrome is a leading supplier of advertising hoardings .Our premises are equipped with the latest wide format printers which enable us to produce high quality hoardings graphics up to 5m wide.

Easy picture mounting on foam board

Many people have never heard of foam board, though it is very likely that they would have come across it at some point. It is made of a type of CFC free polystyrene placed between two sheets of acid free paper or plastic so that the foam forms the middle layer of the “sandwich”.

Foam board is a rigid board which comes in three colours (black, grey and white) and a variety of sizes and thicknesses. Because foam board is very lightweight as well as strong, it is often used for framing large graphic images or posters since it adds very little extra weight. Foam board has an exceptional ability to accept ink jet as well as full colour printing. Image printing on foam board  is widely used for all kinds of signage, menu boards and graphic posters.

Being, foam board is easy to handle, transport and store. It is a the  perfect medium for mounting posters and graphics for exhibitions and road shows, especially if these have to be transported by plane for use at international events. applications

Foam board is also very popular with travelling salespeople, trainers and others who use mounted pictures or charts as audio visual aids for presentations. Photographic prints, flow charts and presentations can be safely mounted on foam board for a professional look as it is acid free and pH neutral. Lightweight and easy to handle foam board makes an excellent backdrop for presentations and story boards.

Foam board is also a safe and environmentally friendly material to use as it is made from polystyrene which is non toxic and produced without polluting CFCs. What’s more, the polystyrene can be recycled when the foam board is no longer required.

Portable displays – for use anytime, anywhere

If you have to do client presentations, training sessions or attend exhibitions and conferences several times a year it is likely that you will require – or perhaps already use – a portable display system. A portable display system is one that is designed for temporary use and may be transported for reuse at different venues throughout the year.

So, what should you be looking for when selecting a portable display? Portability and flexibility are the two key features of every portable display. It should also be

  • Lightweight
  • Quick and easy to assemble and take down afterwards
  • Easy to transport and store when not in use.

Individual displays can be used on their own or combined with other portable display units to provide a variety of configurations including backdrops for events and road shows, graphics for exhibition shell schemes and walk-around displays.

There are as many kinds of portable displays as there are uses for them. Many are proprietary systems with unique properties and features but portable displays can be broadly classified into these main types:

BANNER STANDS – Probably the most popular as they are lightweight, easily portable, can be set up in seconds, retractable and suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

POP-UP STANDS – Larger display units usually made of vinyl or fabric, these are mainly used to create a backdrop for road shows, corporate events and exhibition stands

DISPLAY BOARDS – Generally made of material that is rigid and strong enough to stand on its own, they are mainly used for displaying posters, information, notices and marketing materials made of paper or other lightweight materials like vinyl.
