What are the Benefits of PVC Banners?

This week, Peels4U have a special Half Price Banners offer. But before you buy, you may be wondering – what are the advantages of banners, and how will they boost your business? We’ve jotted down the top 5 benefits of PVC banners, to help you decide if they’re the right signage solution for you.

5 – PVC Banners are noticeable

Placing colourful, eye-catching banners in key locations will direct customers to your premises, and promote your business.  Because our workshop is at the back of a large industrial estate, banners are essential for us to #GetNoticed – so we have one on every corner to help our clients find us.

4 – PVC Banners are adaptable

Unlike static signs, banners are lightweight and a great option for temporary signage that’s suitable for every business. Our banners are ideal for public events, advertising outside your shop or office, or for promoting in the local area. For instace, we have a banner on top of our car on a busy main road in Thetford, to grab the attention of the hundreds of people who drive past each day.

3 – PVC Banners are durable

As they say on Game of Thrones – winter is coming. Our banners survive colder seasons because they are strong and flexible, with the ability to move with the wind. They’re also weather resistant, as PVC is a plastic coating that protects the material beneath, giving banners a sleek, smart finish that won’t be ruined by rain or snow.

2 – PVC Banners are immediate

Banners create an instant impact on customers, as they can be made at short notice to promote a new service, feature a seasonal event or jump on the latest trend. We produce banners in as little as 24 hours, for up-to-the-minute advertising that keeps your business fresh and exciting.

– PVC Banners are affordable

For any business, cost effective advertising is important. That’s why our standard banners (1.2m x 0.3m) start from just £7, giving you an affordable way to improve brand identity, and reach a wider audience. What’s more, our PVC Banners are now half price until Sunday 1st October 2017.

Which Came First – the Colour Orange or the Fruit?

As the trees change colour this season, you may wonder which came first – the colour orange or the name of the orange fruit?

The colour has many ties with Autumn. The falling leaves, the Harvest Festival, roaring fires, the bonfire on Guy Fawkes Night, and of course, Halloween. Orange represents nature, danger, warmth… and Pumpkin Spiced Lattes. It’s a complex colour with a colourfully complex history.

The Name of the Fruit Came First

The origin of the word “orange” comes from the Old French term for the ripe fruit: “pomme d’orenge”, or “orange apple.” The word as a colour was named after the fruit,  and first entered the English language in the 16th Century. Until then, “red” was more commonly used to describe what we’d now consider various shades of orange.  Examples include the Red Fox, the Robin Redbreast, Mars (the Red Planet), the Red Squirrel and, of course, Redheads.

After 1688, the colour turned into a political symbol, when the Protestant William of Orange (a principality in the Netherlands) overthrew James II in the Glorious Revolution. Orange became associated with Protestantism in Ireland, and is now a part of their national flag. As the shade of saffron, one of the most expensive spices in history, orange also appears on India’s flag.

The colour orange often has rare and exotic connotations. Saffron is still the costliest jar on the supermarket spice rack. The native Red Squirrel is now under threat in England from the foreign Grey. And redheads, often unfairly mocked for their unusual appearance, were once lauded by Pre-Raphaelite artists such as Rossetti.

The Colour Orange in Branding

Orange is a stand out colour in branding, and is a warmer, subtler alternative to its bolder sibling Red. In colour psychology, the positive meanings of orange include creativity, enthusiasm, and optimism – remember the slogan “the future’s bright, the future’s Orange”?

Often used for autumn events, promotions and sales, the colour also features in national and international branding. Take, for instance, the supermarket chain Sainsbury’s, car parts specialist Halfords, or online retailer Amazon. In local branding, the Writers’ Centre Norwich and EACH (East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices) are notable examples. And the logo for Norfolk based charity Break uses orange with the opposite colour blue, for a popular contrast also seen in the logos of corporate firms Fanta and Aldi. Peels4U recently used orange in embroidered Workwear:
