Logo Coffee Mugs


Ever want to leave a client or potential customer with a useful gift they’ll use every day? Get them a custom coffee mug for their morning routine. Many offices appreciate free mugs to replace their old, grungy drinkware. A coffee mug is the most used tool at many businesses. Give them something they’ll be sure to hang on to; give them a mug with your logo on it.


Your run-of-the-mill mug is the most standard drinkware that gets printed on. Let us know what you’re interested in and what you’d like to accomplish with your gifts. Our designers are trained and have the skills to put together the perfect solution for you. We know what colors work best – not just for your design, but for printing on unique materials like ceramic. Be a part of a balanced breakfast (or just a caffeinated one) with a beautifully printed mug.


Or, on the flip side, print dozens of mugs for internal use at your business. This is a great way to ensure that your mugs and teacups stay put if you own a small café. If they’re beautiful enough, you can sell them to passionate customers who want to show off their love for your brand. Even if you’re a start-up or small office, encourage clients to share their love of you with a complimentary mug. Show some office style with branded mugs that get set out for meetings and let attendees know they’re free to take it with them if they want.


There are plenty of ways to surprise people with a mug. And it will get you valuable advertising space in the morning, when someone is thinking about what they should do that day.

Look Great With Professional Menu Boards


No one can count how many menu boards we have seen in our lifetime, or let alone the past year. Like all other forms of design, menu boards hang high in different shapes, sizes, and colors. They range from basic chalkboards to magnetic strip catalogs, there’s always variety to present a customer with all of the available food choices. Although a normal person might not be able to recall most menu boards they’ve looked at in the past, a display that’s informative and easy to decipher keeps customers happy.


Accessibility is the first priority in designing a great menu board. When a customer walks into a restaurant with a particular dish in mind (whether it’s a sandwich, soup, or salad) it should be instantly known if the food is available. If not, clean organization can steer their eyes toward specific categories eventually revealing other options.


Plenty of restaurants tend to use specialty names to describe food items which usually confuse customers, left wondering what’s in the dish. Descriptions are important. If a customer is clueless as to what’s in an entrée, they most likely won’t order it. The same applies with having a legible font; pricing influences what customers order, there shouldn’t be issues differentiating a “3” from a “5”.


Featuring photos of well-presented dishes not only makes the entire menu board more visually appealing, it piques a customer’s curiosity to try the dish. Some people decide to stay in their comfort zone when ordering food — photos give them an opportunity to explore your menu and increase the likelihood they’ll be repeat customers.


We thrive on crafting memorable menu boards. Restaurants aren’t our only specialty; we specialize in solutions for beauty salons and many other applications. There are plenty of affordable options: we’re capable of everything from regular dimensional menu boards to digital ones. Let us stylize a captivating look for your company by requesting a quote today!

Best Vehicles for Vehicle Wraps

Vehicle wraps are being used more and more nowadays as automotive paint increases in price and printing technology gets better and cheaper. Vehicle wraps can cover the entire exterior of any sized vehicle and they can come in any design imaginable. Vehicle wraps can even be made out of material that stays cool in the sun whereas cars that are simply painted can become incredibly hot.


When choosing a vehicle wrap to promote your business, the first big decision that you have to make is what type of vehicle you should cover. Sign City Detroit has put together a list of tips and advice to help you make this important decision and others.


- Your vehicle should fit your business. If you own an organic vegetable stand that runs on solar power, it would not make sense for your promotional vehicle to be a gas guzzling Hummer. A Prius would probably be a better choice.


- The bigger the better. Vehicles are like billboards in that the larger they are; the easier they are to see. The same goes for the advertisements and graphics on them. Trucks and vans are the vehicles most commonly covered with vehicle wraps. They are long and tall vehicles with flat surfaces that are easy to see and read.


- Don’t be conservative. There is no point in wrapping your entire automobile in one plain color! Get creative with your design and add images of your products, logo, staff, mascot or anything else that looks interesting. You want your vehicle to be eye catching when it rolls down the highway.


- Get a matching set. Consistency is important when trying to build your brand. Having a full fleet of completely different looking company vehicles can dilute your brand in the eye of the consumer. You should strive to have each vehicle look the same so that each one is instantly associated with your business.
