Central Islip, NY (PRWEB) March 25, 2013
On March 25, nationwide truck wraps manufacturer JMR Graphics comments on an article in the News-Gazette discussing one city’s ban of temporary vinyl signs.
According to the News-Gazette, the city of Danville, Ill. required that all local businesses take down their temporary vinyl advertisements before March 15. The city says signs are eyesores and could be a danger to pedestrians if ripped off.
“City administration officials said the banner signs are a violation of city ordinances, which allow temporary signs but only under certain circumstances that limit size and length of time they can be displayed,” News-Gazette reports. “According to city officials, this is an effort to beautify the community, because some of the signs are left up so long that they get worn and tattered or even break loose from their attachments.”
The News-Gazette article says violators who attempt to keep any signs would be fined by the city.
Representative TJ Pannell from JMR Graphics, a nationwide truck wraps manufacturer, says the removal of signs could hurt the local economy. “Advertisements are supposed to be eye-catching and they are supposed to be displayed in an area where people can see them,” he says. “Local businesses thrive off of advertisements because they can showcase their achievements or promote sales. Banning these signs could severely cripple local businesses.”
Though Danville banned hanging vinyl signs, Pannell says business owners should look into vinyl car wrapping. “Vehicle wraps are a great way to advertise and expand your outreach because they are completely mobile. When made from the proper vinyl, they pose no threat to the paint on your car and can really help increase sales. They are safe, weatherproof, fade-proof and completely custom made to fit any vehicle. I would recommend these business owners to invest in vinyl wraps and find a new way to advertise.”
