You Asked, I Answered
HOW WILL PAINTING MY STORE WINDOWS GET ME MORE BUSINESS?
The Single Greatest Advertising value available today is window painting! The Biggest Bang for your Buck. It's affordable, quick, bold and easily up-datable. Window Painting Promo is the one best ways to attract the attention of anyone walking or driving by. It not only says “here I am, look at me” (which is great for new businesses) but it also says “check out these great deals, now!” It creates a “right here”, “right now” urgency type of sales alert. The main purpose of window painting is to get the customer in the door. How many times I have heard customers say "Saw your sign! And just had to come in and check you out!"
HOW DO YOU CALCULATE YOUR FEES?
Every job is custom painted and so the fees vary. I charge by the square foot, the amount of coverage, the level of detail, the permanance that is required for your finished sign, and whether scaffolding or lifts are required to do the job. Some situations may also require a permit.
Each job is quoted individually as everything I do is completely custom.
A detailed scene on one window, wall or chalkboard with complex lettering and graphics could run about the same price as something simple and splashy across your whole storefront... it really depends on the amount of detail, and how complex the job is.
DO YOU PAINT ON THE INSIDE OR THE OUTSIDE OF THE WINDOWS?
The window design can be applied to either the inside or the outside. The outside can give better results as it reduces glare from the glass, however, location sometimes makes painting on the inside a better choice. The paint is waterproof once dry, however excessive weather can tend to make the art droop after a long period of time.
HOW DO I GET THE PAINT OFF OF MY WINDOWS?
If you want to replace the current advertising paint with a new message, just book an appointment and I'll will remove it for you, free of charge. If you just want it gone, then spray with water or glass cleaner. Let sit briefly, then scrape off with a spatula, paint scraper or drywall tool. Make sure the windows are wet so as not to scratch the glass. And be sure to lay down a plastic sheet or drop cloth.
DO YOU ANYTHING ELSE BESIDES MAKING SIGNS?
Yes. I paint wall murals and do faux painting, motorcycles helmets & tins, painted furniture.Things I have painted for our customers... furniture (dressers, chairs, old trunks, chairs, tables, desks ), appliances (refrigerators, heaters), lamps and light fixtures, toilet seats, garden ornaments, saw blades, records, cookie jars,
WHICH PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT?
I am able to take all major credit and debit cards, cash, etransfers. Cheques may be accepted with prior confirmation. Businesses can have an option for payment up front, payment upon completion, or invoicing.
I am currently working on a sign rental and window splash subscription service for in the near future.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CHANGE MY WINDOW PROMO?
I recommend changing your art at minimum with the seasons. 4 times per year. But it is optimum to change it weekly if you have weekly specials, or with each Holiday.
IS THERE ANYTHING LAURA-ANNE WON'T PAINT?
No. I'll pretty much paint anything on anything. 😁
ARE YOU INSURED?
ABSOLUTELY! I've got you covered. You don't have to worry about accidental breakage, spillage or injury.
