Pop-up stores are an exciting blend of flexibility and creativity in the retail world. A unique mix of social marketing and traditional brick-and-mortar storefronts, these retail spaces offer customers a unique and immersive experience. Their temporary nature allows for risk-free experimentation and flexibility, a boon for emerging brands or companies who want to test new concepts or markets. The beauty of these pop-up spaces lies in their flexibility, as they can be set up anywhere from traditional retail spaces to more unconventional locations like staircases or lofts.
September is National Service Dog Month and we are proud to be long time supporters of Canine Companions, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained service dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships. Canine Companions provides service dogs, hearing dogs, and skilled companion dogs to people in need. We are a company staffed by lots of animal lovers, and even have a very special connection to Canine Companions – one of our resident “office dogs” is a CC littermate. Her name is Juana! SunDance has been a partner of Canine Companions since 2016 and is pleased to produce a selection of their printed and fundraising materials, including their celebrated annual Tails and Tails Gala materials, yearly calendars, and keepsake Graduation Program booklets. We love working with Canine Companions and proudly support their extraordinary mission!
SunDance is pleased to announce to announce the purchase of our new wide format flatbed printer – the HP R2000 latex flatbed printer. In addition to upgrading all the capabilities of our previous flatbed the R2000 is HP’s newest shining star in their latex print division, and with good reason. The R2000 excels at printing on both rigid and flexible media, allowing for complete color control across a variety of mediums. It delivers knockout color and high-resolution graphics on corrugated cardboard and folding carton material as well as acrylic and aluminum signage and panels. Flexible media applications allow for banners, vinyl, window clings, wallpaper printings, wall applications, and some fine art applications. In addition to printing with precise color dot placement and rich saturation across different media applications, the R2000 also boasts the glossiest, most opaque white ink in the business today.
Tradeshow events have long been a staple in most B-to-B marketers tool bags, and while “virtual” tradeshows have tried to fill the gap – let’s face it, they just are NOT the same! Attending an industry tradeshow to discover new solutions, innovations and networking in person is an entirely different experience.
For this year's Maker Faire, their creative team reached out to SunDance to create a series of custom signs for the two day event. SunDance has been a sponsor of Maker Faire for a number of years, creating signage, printed items and badges for the events.
While there were a large number of traditional large format printed signs, in true Maker fashion, they threw us a curveball. They wanted to create a series of signs that include digital readouts to allow the event to change the sign copy during the event.
Our design team got to work creating a one of a kind masterpiece that incorportated all of the design requirements. After a few revisions, everyone was happy with the design and our production team started creating the sign structure from scratch.
If you're out at the Maker Faire Orlando and see our work, post a picture and tag us along with #orlmakerfaire.
Bethune-Cookman University just completed a huge expansion project adding two new residence halls. This included a campus-wide beautification project in both the new and existing buildings. It did not go unnoticed. It was a big hit even before we had finished installing the job. The concept was to showcase the rich history and tradition of the century-plus institution. Wall Wraps, Acrylic Plaques, Vinyl Applications and more were applied to lobby walls, hallways and stairwells. The final product speaks for itself and will continue to do so for generations to come.
How much thought goes into your company’s workspaces? Before you pass the buck to the facilities management team and declare, “What’s done is done,” think about the impact that workplace design has on your business. In its Workplace Design Developments for 2016, SBFI reports, “poor workplace design costs U.S. businesses an estimated $330 billion in lost productivity each year.” That’s billion with a “b.”
