6 Signage Ideas to Get Your Seattle Business Ready for the Holiday Season

November 01, 2021

As the holiday season draws closer, there’s no better time than now to start getting your Seattle office or brick-and-mortar store ready for the upcoming rush of shoppers. From outdoor banners to indoor posters, McNamara Signs can design the perfect holiday sign that will add value to your business.

Our many signage options will help you drive new business and improved brand awareness. We offer a wide variety of material options and can even help you brainstorm with our design services.

Here are six essential signs to help your Seattle business improve traffic and sales in the coming months.

Outdoor Holiday Banners

Many cities and local educational campuses are showcasing their holiday spirit with outdoor flagpole banners. They’re vivid, durable, and can stand up to the harshest of Seattle winters. Downtown areas and smaller tourist attractions can also benefit from adding banners to their street light posts.

The more traditional rectangle outdoor banner is a great way to advertise holiday sales and events to pedestrians and nearby traffic. You can choose from a wide variety of highly secure mounting options. If the wind is a concern, we can create a mesh banner that will allow the breezes to pass harmlessly through without causing the banner to flutter in the wind.

Customer and Employee Appreciation

Show appreciation to both your customers and workers with a wide variety of branded gifts. On the employee side of things, handing out presents at the holiday party does wonders to help improve morale. For your customers, it’s an excellent way to show them that you value their continued business.

Are you stuck trying to decide what to give your employees or customers? Consider forgoing the traditional holiday calendars and cheap pen sets in favor of a slightly more expensive product.

For example, you can have a high-quality hoodie sweatshirt with your company logo proudly displayed. This turns everyone who wears it into a walking, talking billboard for your business.

Important note: Due in major part to the pandemic and ongoing worldwide supply chain issues, some promotional gift supplies are very limited. It would behoove you to place your orders as quickly as possible before someone else does.

Sandwich Signs

If you run a brick-and-mortar retail store that sees a significant uptick in foot traffic during the holiday season, a custom sandwich board from McNamara Signs can help attract the attention of those who pass by.

Promote your holiday-themed events, or just have one of your talented employees draw a holiday scene or logo with one of these A-Boards. There are a wide variety of options to choose from, including chalkboard, dry-erase, and corkboard.

Vehicle Wraps

Automobile traffic during the holiday season increases exponentially as people are out and about while shopping. A vehicle wrap can generate tens of thousands of impressions in a single day—all as your car, truck, or van sit outside your business during regular operating hours.

If a wrap is too much, consider a vehicle magnet. Available in black and white or vivid full color, they’re ideal for situations when you only want to temporarily use your vehicle for advertising your business or services.

Decorate Your Store or Office!

Custom, holiday-themed vinyl decals are a cost-effective alternative to hiring an artist to paint your store windows with holiday imagery. You can easily apply them, and when January 2nd rolls around, simply peel them off and store them in a cool, dry place until you need them again next year!

At McNamara Signs, we offer a wide variety of films and colors that will allow you to create the perfect holiday theme or promote your upcoming sales with window decals. If you’re concerned about blocking out the natural light, you can opt for a see-through decal, which will allow some light to enter your store.

Promotional Signage (Yard Signs)

Promotional signs can not only help promote an upcoming holiday event but act as wayfinding signage for vehicles to enter and exit the parking lot safely. Our yard signs offer a tremendous ROI without breaking the bank.

They’re easy to move, lightweight, and can stand up to the harshest of Seattle winters. Choose from a wide range of materials and finishes, such as corrugated plastic or traditional cardboard material.
