6 Steps to Killer Charity Car Wash banners

Syndicated from source by Andrew & Co Graphics & Wallpaper, Hooper, Utah

So, you’re throwing a charity car wash. This is a good way to raise funds for a worthy cause. Everyone needs to wash their car, and most people like supporting a good cause. There’s more to throwing a car wash than just setting up some car wash banners for your charity car wash. Follow the tips here, and you’ll be packing in the cars in no time.

Decide how many people from your group are going to help

The first step to throwing a car wash is to determine how many people are going to be part of the event. You’re going to need volunteers to wash cars, take money, and hold banners. You’re probably going to want a minimum of five people, but the more people you can get, the better.

Schedule a Day and Time for your Car Wash

The day and time you choose for your car wash is key to pulling in crowds. Weekends (Saturdays in particular) are best because most people are out of school and off work. Keep an eye to weather forecasts, since people aren’t going to want their car washed when it’s raining. The final piece of planning is making sure your chosen day and time works for everyone in the group.

Tip: If you’re having trouble finding a schedule that works for everyone, have members sign up to work shifts.


Find a Location for your Car Wash

You know what they say: location, location, location. Once you’ve determined how many people you’ll have, and when you’ll be doing your event, you need to find a location that offers both space and visibility. Parking lots tend to be ideal for car wash events. Many property owners will be happy to let you use their space if you tell them it’s to support a charity or school. Of course, you’ll want to make sure the day and time you’ve chosen works for them too. Make sure your location is on a busy road – a busy intersection is even better. The busier your space, the more people will see you and your banners.


Set the Price for your Car Wash

You’ve got to pick a price that is fair, but attractive for your customers. By and large, $5 is the most common amount. However, be sure you have prices that account for special situations like large vehicles, or waxing.

Tip: Sometimes, simply asking for donations can result in better revenue than setting a price


Pre-sell as Many Tickets as you Can

The best way to make sure your car wash is a success is to secure your revenue before you even start. Family and friends are often a great place to start. Often times, people will buy tickets as donations whether or not they show up to have their car washed. At any rate, asking for pre-sales is a good way to get word of mouth going around.


Create Signs and Banners

Good signage is necessary for your car wash. You’ll need someone swinging a banner on the street, as well as posters and banners placed around town. This is the main way people will find out about your car wash, and designing your banner at an online banner printing service is a great way to create eye catching signs.


Take Steps to Protect the Environment

Cleaning supplies rinsed into storm drains do not get filtered, as a result they can pollute the lakes and rivers. However, there are steps to take that will prevent this and conserve water.

What Sets the Top Ontario Signage Companies Apart?

Syndicated from source by Andrew & Co Graphics & Wallpaper, Hooper, Utah

What sets the top signage companies apart from the rest? Find out in today's post.

We've been in the custom sign business for over 10 years in Ontario and we'd love to share our expertise and experience with you.

We'll take a look at the key points that you should look for when choosing which signage company to work with for your business. So let's get started.

Signage Companies - What the Top Ones Have in Common


Top signage companies will have extensive experience making and installing high quality signs. Check out how many years they have been in business and how extensive their experience is.

You'll also want to make sure that they have experience making the particular type of sign that you require. The best signage companies will also be so well-trained that they will be able to do custom signs if you are looking for something unique.

Even the highest quality signs will need servicing from time to time so it's a good idea to work with a company that will be in business for a long time. Ask how long the company has been in business and avoid working with one that has only just begun.

Top signage companies can make any type of sign your need


Locally Owned

The best signage companies to work with are usually the ones that are locally owned and operated. Because you will need to have your signage installed at your location, it is important to work with a local signage company that is close to you and can physically come to your business to do the installations.

If anything goes wrong, it's easier to contact a local company than one that is located far away. If you work with a company that isn't local, you or they will have to hire another company, that you don’t know, to do the installation. This is not a good idea because they will not be familiar with your wishes.

Working with local signage companies also makes sense because they will know the regulations regarding signage in your particular area. Double check that their office is actually located within their stated service area and that the physical location of the business is the same as the address stated on their website.




It’s better to use locally owned signage companies



Many sign companies merely design a sign for you and then they have it made and installed by someone else. The top signage companies will offer all the services you require for your signs, these include:

Working with a full-service signage company means that you are working with professionals who know every aspect of the signage industry, not just the design stage.

That means that they will know the best materials to use for your particular situation, the right size you need, and they type of signage that will work best for you. In addition, they will also know how to properly and safely install it and able to keep your sign looking its best for years to come.




A full-service signage company can design, manufacture, install and maintain your signage


Online Presence

Website: The best signage companies will have an up-to-date, easy-to-navigate website that is professionally made and shows past and recent examples of their work. The information on their site should be complete and full of helpful details.

Check to see if they have a way to make an online appointment as well and that there contact information is accurate including their address, phone number and email.

Gallery: The top signage companies will have a photo gallery that accurately showcases the work that they do. When looking for a sign company to work with, make sure that the one that you choose has a wide variety of original and authentic images of the signs that they have manufactured and installed.

Social Media: They will also have a good social media presence using platforms such as Instagram and Facebook. Check that these sites are also regularly updated and that they have a high number of followers.



Top signage companies have a good social media presence



The top signage companies will have great online reviews and star ratings. They will also have a large number of reviews, not just one or two. Take a look at the online reviews of the signage companies to see what previous customers think about them. In particular look for comments such as:

Make sure that the reviews are legitimate and come from third party sites such as Google reviews or the Better Business Bureau. Try to determine if the reviews are coming from actual people. Take a look at whether or not the owner replies to the reviews, especially the way they reply to negative reviews.
