Window decals are a great way to boost your business’s curb appeal and push new promotions without eating up wall space, but they’re not as easy to install as some would think.
If you’re going to go through the time and effort it takes to conceptualize, design, and manufacture a window decal, you’d better be willing to do it right.
The first thing that you’ll need to do during your window decal installation is identify which side is the protective sheet. Though the varieties of window decals vary, the installation process itself is basically the same. Make sure the window is clean – you may even want to invest in a professional cleaning before you begin your installation.
Grab your hard edge – whichever one you chose – and move it like across the surface like a squeegee, raking the air bubbles and excess water out from between the decal and window pane. With the proper concept and placement, banners can really make a strong statement for your brand and business.
The SignWorld team has compiled a number of banner best practices to help you drive business your way, and we’d like to share them with you now.
Canvas prints are all-around crowd-pleasers; they’re one of the most desirable means of decorating a residential space, but they’re also popular choices for offices, lobbies, reception areas, and many other professional settings. And while the canvas print is used in many different settings, their actual application is even more diverse! But before we launch into our office canvas print applications, let’s review some of the fundamentals. Canvas prints are usually ordered by clients who have particular personal pictures in mind. When you’re ready to plan and purchase your print, you’ll need to decide on an edge option. We generally recommend setting a theme that conforms to the utility of the room, though no hard and fast rules apply.
Every business ever started, from Starbucks to the Mom ’n Pop bakery down the street has had one question on their minds when they first opened their doors: where will my customers come from?  The vast majority of Signworld business owners attribute 80% of their business to their website and while a sound website is undoubtedly a cornerstone of any modern business, in this post I will explore how to optimize that remaining 20%.
Social media may have gotten its start outside of the business world but has since spread into modern commerce. And lastly, network within your network.  A customer referral program can offer your business referrals and leads that may have gone untapped for years.
Signworld is a national organization with more than 290 independently owned sign companies, which provide commercial custom signage and graphics. Should you have any questions for the Signworld team or are interested in becoming a Signworld business owner, contact us by clicking the link below. A second benefit of proactively pursuing negative feedback is that it can prevent long-term issues before they take root within your established network.  Long time customers are more likely to be immediately vocal about their complaints because they are accustomed to a certain standard from your company and products. Follow Signworld’s blog for Part 3 of Customer Loyalty: Three Tips for Securing Repeat Business. Unless you’re an undertaker, you’re probably going to aim for repeat customers throughout lifespan of your company.  The majority of Signworld business owners attribute 80% of their revenue to roughly twenty to thirty top accounts, a relatively small pool of valuable clients. Follow Signworld’s blog for Parts 2 and 3 of Customer Loyalty: Three Tips for Securing Repeat Business. Because sometimes the color looks different on the computer screen than it does when you go to print it, there are different types of color modes when it comes to designing signage. Two of the most frequently used ones are called RGB and CMYK.  We are going to go over them, but first we must talk a little about how as humans, our eyes see color.
RGB – If you haven’t already guessed, RGB stands for Red, Green, and Blue.  In this color mode, all colors are comprised of a mixture of these three colors. This color mode is used in anything that is light-based.  For example cameras, computer screens, and even the television in your living room uses the RGB color mode. The CMYK color mode is different from RBG as these colors are subtractive, not additive.  The difference is these colors absorb light rather than reflect it so all colors begin white and the more colors that are added, the closer to black it becomes.
RGB gives a number from 0 to 255 for each of its three colors.  The numbers tell the computer how much of each colored light to produce.
CMYK is represented in percentages from 0 to 100.  100-100-100-100 will result in pure black, and 0-0-0-0 gives you white.
Having a basic understanding of RGB vs CMYK, will help you to have a better idea of why and how color seems to change between the computer screen and your printed signs.

Operating any kind of business means there are a lot of daily tasks and items that you need to keep track of – and a SignWorld business is no different. Addappt: We all know that having updated business contact information is important, but given how transient people are these days, maintaining an up-to-date address book can be a challenge. Clear: This app for iOS users allows business owners to set up daily task lists, sort and set up reminders. Square: The widespread use of smartphones has made everything about running a business more portable – and that includes taking credit and debit card payments. Polaris Office: If you are looking for an alternative to iWork to manage your Microsoft Office documents when you are away from your PC, look no further than Polaris Office. This is just a small sampling of the apps that are out there that can help your SignWorld business run more smoothly and efficiently. Every great superhero has dedicated sidekick supporting them, and as a business owner you should have a sidekick too!  Your spouse could be your sidekick, supporting you through the challenges of entrepreneurship. Be sure to figure out and recognize the sidekicks in your life.  Show them the appreciation and respect that they deserve for being a key member in the success of your business. One thing you’ll learn from owning and operating a SignWorld business, is that it is very important to know the right people, more importantly to know the people who know people.  A good connector is has the right connections to hook you up with the ideal people who can help your business grow. To give an example, a connector may be a business coach, who can put you in touch with everyone needed to start up the business. Other possible connectors are people you meet through networking groups or from previous employees that have the power to introduce you to new customers, mentors and sidekicks. In summary, the success of your SignWorld business if truly up to you and the completion of your goals, but one step you can take to put yourself on the right path is to take time and recognize who can help you achieve your goals.
Let’s stop right there and think about this.  If you are taking on more than one thing, will each individual task receive your absolute best?  And is juggling your responsibilities really going to take care of them faster? The truth is, you must stop the habit of multi-tasking, and focus on becoming a great single-tasker instead.  Studies have found that multi-tasking can actually increase the amount of time it takes to complete tasks by up to 25%. As a SignWorld business owner, it may be time to change your ways and look at useful methods to utilize so that you can become an efficient single-tasker. A wise man once said “Don’t put off tomorrow, what you can do today”.  Sometimes you will find yourself faced with an unexpected email, telephone message, etc. You need to drill this into your head – multi-tasking is the killer of productivity!  The key is to stick by these practices and learn to become a great single-tasker. By doing so, you will be in the right direction of productivity, which is one of the key components of success in owning and operating a SignWorld business. The following is a list of five qualities that stellar business to business salespeople possess.
Product Knowledge – There is no doubt that a great salesperson must have complete knowledge of the products and services they are trying to sell. A Good Sales Process with the Right Tools – A B2B salesperson will flourish with a good sales process that has the right tools.
Natural Ability to Sell – Last but certainly not least, the best B2B salespeople that are out there simply just have the natural ability to sell.
Keep all of these qualities in mind as you develop your own B2B sales skills and when you are looking to hire new employees to your SignWorld business. A lot of these people have great ideas, they will find the confidence they need to branch off on their own and start their own business, be their own boss.  While some may fail, many will others will not let up and this year will be great for the entrepreneur.
Baby boomers are aging and acknowledging their bodies are not what they once were.  Expect to see many people spending less time at the office, and more time being active – they will be buying home fitness equipment, memberships to gyms, and anything else to try and get in shape. As days pass we are draining our resources more and more and there is a currently a collective shift building against excessive materialism that will continue to grow. When one thinks of the traditional sign shop of yesteryear, they usually envision a business that consists of mostly (or entirely) men.
A big part of being successful in business to business sales is having a strong network and being able to connect with others.
Designing amazing looking signs for your clients is only one part of the SignWorld business. While this can be a disadvantage if taken to the extreme, having high standards for producing a quality product and providing great customer service is very important in the operation of a successful SignWorld business. SignWorld owners who refuse to settle for mediocre work are the ones who will get loyal, repeat customers. One thing that really makes some of the most successful SignWorld owners stand out amongst the crowd is how they take their customers’ needs into consideration.
Building any type of business takes effort and sweat equity – and a SignWorld business is no exception.
Healthy self-confidence is important for any business owner, but a huge ego can be a detriment. While they take fewer risks, the risks that women entrepreneurs do take tend to be more calculated.
Female entrepreneurs are hard workers but they also value their family and social lives and do their best to maintain a healthy work-life balance. While these attributes are generalizations and not necessarily true for all women, they are certainly true of many of our female SignWorld business owners – and these attributes are key factors their success. These South African husband and wife teams across different industries are proof that business and family can mix. Reasons for going into business together: We came up with the idea for our tech startup while on holiday in December 2013.
What are the challenges you have to deal with? The biggest challenge for us is separating our work from our personal relationship. It can be a challenge finding the balance between treating your partner as a spouse vs a business partner. It's also key that you have a strong enough relationship to be able to take professional criticism from your partner if needs be, without this spilling over into your personal life. Do something that you are both equally passionate about, so that when there is the inevitable time taken away from your personal life for your business, you are both happy to make the sacrifice. To understand ourselves it is important to understand our ancestors, and a part of them, and their heritage, lives on in us today. To the world the American Indians seemed like a forgotten people when the English colonists first arrived and began to occupy their lands.
I want to give special thanks to my cousin, Mary Hilliard, for her assistance and encouragement in researching and preparing this book. Wherever possible I have tried to find at least two sources for the genealogical data, but this has not always been possible.
I have also found Franklin Elewatum Bearce's history, Who Our Forefathers Really Were, A True Narrative of Our White and Indian Ancestors, to be very helpful. It is certainly possible that such a record may contain errors, but it is also very fortunate that we have access to this record as it presents firsthand knowledge of some of the individuals discussed in this book.
8 Newcomba€? Cpt. Sometime before the colonial period, the Iroquoian tribes began moving from the southern plains eastward across the Mississippi River and then northeasterly between the Appalachians and the Ohio River Valley, into the Great Lakes region, then through New York and down the St.
Though they were neighbors and had similar skin color, these two groups of Indians were as dissimilar as the French and the Germans in Europe. Federations, as well as the individual tribes, were fluid organizations to the extent that the sachem was supported as long as he had the strength to maintain his position.
Belonging to a federation meant that an annual tribute had to be sent to support the great sachem and his household, warriors had to be sent if he called for a given number to go to war, and strictest obedience and fidelity was demanded. Some of these federations had as many as thirty member tribes supporting their Great Sachem, although many of these tribes would be counted by more than one sachem, as any tribe that was forced to pay tribute was considered as part of that Great Sachem's federation.
Any member of the society who dishonored himself, in anyway, was no longer worthy of the respect of his people.
When viewing the typical Indians of America, one would describe them as having a dark brown skin. They wore relatively little clothing, especially in summer, although the women were usually somewhat more modest than the men.
The English resented the fact that the Indians wouldn't convert to Christianity as soon as the missionaries came among them.
The various tribes of New England spoke basically the same language and could understand each other well. There are many words used commonly in our language today that were learned from these New England Indians: Squaw, wigwam, wampum, pow-wow, moccasin, papoose, etc. Today there is little doubt that prior to Columbus's voyage, the Norsemen sailed to the coast of North America early in the eleventh century. We do not have a record of all of the European contact and influence on the Indians in the early years of exploration because the greatest exposure came from the early European fishermen and trappers who kept no records of their adventures, as opposed to the explorers. In 1524, Giovanni da Verrazano wrote the first known description of a continuous voyage up the eastern coast of North America.
As the fur trade became increasingly more important to Europeans, they relied heavily on the Indians to do the trapping for them. Another problem with which the Indians had to contend was the White man's diseases for which they had no tolerance nor immunity.
In the spring of 1606, Gorges sent Assacumet and Manida, as guides on a ship with Captain Henry Chalons, to New England to search for a site for a settlement.
In 1614, Captain John Smith, who had already been involved in the colony at James Town, Virginia, was again commissioned to take two ships to New England in search of gold, whales or anything else of value. Dermer wanted to trade with the local Indians of the Wampanoag Federation and asked Squanto if he would guide them and be their interpreter. Derner was given safe passage through Wampanoag land by Massasoit and soon returned to his ship.
When the Pilgrims left England in the Mayflower, their stated intent was to establish a settlement on the mouth of the Hudson River, at the site of present day New York City. The Pilgrims returned to the Mayflower and, after many days of exploration, found a more suitable location. On March 16, 1621 the Pilgrims were surprised by a tall Indian who walked boldly into the plantation crying out, "Welcome!
The Pilgrims gestured for Massasoit to join them in their fort but, he in turn, gestured for them to come to him. When the amenities were ended, the English brought out a treaty they had prepared in advance, which specified that the Wampanoags would be allies to the English in the event of war with any other peoples and that they would not harm one-another; and that when any Indians came to visit the plantation they would leave their weapons behind. After the ceremonies were ended, Governor Carver escorted Massasoit to the edge of the settlement and waited there for the safe return of Winslow. Part of Massasoit's willingness to make an alliance with the English must be credited to his weakened condition after suffering from the recent epidemics which left his followers at about half of the strength of his enemies, the Narragansetts.
In June of 1621, about three months after the signing of the treaty, a young boy from the Colony was lost in the woods.
When the English could not find the boy, Governor William Bradford, (who replaced John Carver, who died in April) sent to Massasoit for help in locating the boy. That summer Governor Bradford sent Edward Winslow and Stephen Hopkins, with Squanto, to Pokanoket (Massasoit's own tribe, on the peninsula where Bristol, R.I.

From this trip of Winslow's, we learn more about the daily life of the Indians in this area. Massasoit urged his guests to stay longer but they insisted they must return to Plymouth before the Sabbath.
Less than a month following this visit, Massasoit sent Hobomock, a high ranking member of the Wampanoag Council, to Plymouth to act as his ambassador and to aid the Pilgrims in whatever way they needed.
Hobomock and Squanto were surprised at what they heard, and quietly withdrew from the camp to Squanto's wigwam but were captured there before they could get to Plymouth. Although the Narragansetts and Wampanoags were historical enemies and continually feuding over land, they did not usually put hostages of high rank to death. Normally, treason was punishable by death and Massasoit would certainly have been justified in executing Corbitant for his part in the plot against him but, for some reason, Massasoit complete forgave him. Their first harvest was not a large one but the Pilgrims were.happy to have anything at all. During the winter, a rivalry developed between Squanto and Hobomock, the two Indians who now lived continually at Plymouth. According to the treaty he had signed with Plymouth, they were to turn over to him any Indians guilty of offense.
In June and July, three ships arrived at Plymouth with occupants who expected to be taken in and cared for. In the winter of 1622-23, Governor William Bradford made trips to the various Indian tribes around Cape Cod to buy food to keep the Pilgrims from starvation. Next, Standish went to Cummaquid (Barnstable, MA.) where Iyanough was Sachem of the Mattachee Tribe.
Thinking that Massasoit was dead, they went instead to Pocasset, where they sought Corbitant who, they were sure, would succeed Massasoit as the next Great Sachem.
Winslow describes their arrival, where the Indians had gathered so closely that it took some effort to get through the crowd to the Great Sachem. Since the Pow-wow's medicine had not produced any results, Winslow asked permission to try to help the ailing Sachem.
Their second Thanksgiving was combined with the wedding celebration of Governor Bradford and Alice Southworth. Because of Massasoit's honored position, more was recorded of him than of other Indians of his time. Massasoit most likely became Sachem of the Pokanokets, and Great Sachem of the Wampanoags, between 1605-1615.
The second son of Massasoit was Pometacomet, (alias Pometacom, Metacom, Metacomet, Metacomo or Philip.) Philip was born in 1640, at least 16 years younger than Alexander. The third son, Sunconewhew, was sent by his Father to learn the white man's ways and to attend school at Harvard. When his two oldest sons were old enough to marry, Massasoit made the arrangements for them to marry the two daughters of the highly regarded Corbitant, Sachem of the Pocasset tribe. The tribes of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, as well as some of the Nipmuck tribes of central Massachusetts, looked to him for Military defense and leadership.
Following the plagues of 1617, which reduced his nation so drastically and left his greatest enemy, the Narragansetts of Rhode Island, so unaffected, Massasoit was in a weakened position. In 1632, following a battle with the Narragansetts in which he regained the Island of Aquidneck, Massasoit changed his name to Ousamequin (Yellow feather) sometimes spelled Wassamegon, Oosamequen, Ussamequen. In 1637, the English waged an unprovoked war of extermination against the Pequot Federation of Connecticut, which shocked both the Wampanoags and the Narragansetts so much that both Nations wanted to avoid hostilities with the feared English.
After hearing of the death of his good friend, Edward Winslow in 1655, Massasoit realized that his generation was passing away. As Massasoit's health began to decline, he turned more and more of the responsibilities over to Alexander who was a very capable leader and who was already leading the warriors on expedition against some of their enemies.
Massasoit was succeeded, as Great Sachem, by his son Alexander, assisted by his brother, Philip. The younger generation saw, in Alexander, a strong, new leader who could see the danger of catering to the English. Both Philip and Weetamoo were very vocal in their condemnation of the English and word of their accusations soon reached Plymouth. Together, Philip and Canonchet reasoned that it would take a great deal of preparation for such a war.
With that in mind, the SignWorld team has assembled some easy-to-implement tips to help you install your window decals. We recommend no more than 3-4 drops per pint of water at most, and strongly urge you to err on the small side. Don’t be stingy – you want enough moisture on this side to allow the decal to slide around on the window at this stage. Otherwise, spray it down with your preferred cleaning products and give it time to dry thoroughly.
Banners have a number of uses in home and office settings, and their relatively low cost compared to other signage styles makes them the perfect choice for anything from enterprise-level company to a self-starter’s small business. Running regular sales and promotions is considered a business best practice for companies of any size.
Banners are also excellent for displaying the everyday information your businesses’ staff members have to communicate with the public. We live in an era where customers want a deeper understanding of the company receiving their patronage.
With this in mind, the SignWorld team has put together a simple guide of ideas and best practices to inspire creative office canvas print applications of your own.

They must know how everything works and how they can service the needs of prospective clients.  Additionally they will understand the problems potential customers have and how their products can help them hurdle over these things. Along with that, a successful B2B salesperson will also have the ability to do things such as build rapport with a customer while still being totally genuine and unique. They work hard to reach their goals and be at the top of their game.  A great salesperson will be an ever growing and changing person and will do so in the proper work environment, one that allows them to truly express their personal styles and abilities.
They are very tenacious, are excellent communicators and love making connections and building long lasting relationships with others.
Many women tend to be more at ease making these social connections than their male counterparts – whether it be through their local chamber of commerce or other business and social circles.
There is also keeping in touch with clients, managing your books, supervising employees, attending additional training and so forth. Being able to anticipate the needs of your customers and making suggestions for signage that will really benefit their business will not only have them coming back time and time again but it will also have them referring your business to their contacts as well.
Women entrepreneurs are willing to put in the long hours and hard work that it takes to build a business from the ground up.
Female business owners tend to have a healthy enough self-image to be able to give credit where credit is due. Female SignWorld owners are less likely to gamble a large chunk of the company budget on an unproven piece of equipment or computer program – but when they do take a risk, the potential ROI has been carefully considered. Their signature dishes range from seafood paella with mussels, calamari, prawns, clams and snap peas, to chicken and chorizo paella with pepper, beans and artichokes as well as mushroom paella with truffle oil, and char grilled fennel.
Then you can agree on how to structure your partnership in terms of what you each bring to the table.
Be prepared for some very tough times emotionally and be aware that it is going to be a couple of years, not weeks or months but years before you fully settle into your groove together. At the moment we really struggle with making time for anything else apart from our startup. At first I was very skeptical of this record as it was a family tradition passed down for many generations. She was very fond of her Grandmother, Freelove, knew all about her and stated on several occasions that Freelove's Mother was Sarah Mauwee, daughter of Joseph Mauwee, Sachem of Choosetown, and not Tabitha Rubbards (Roberts). Massasoit was the Sachem of this tribe, as well as being the Great Sachem over the entire Wampanoag Federation, which consisted of over 30 tribes in central and southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Welcome, Englishmen!" It was a cold and windy day, yet this Indian, who introduced himself as Samoset, Sachem of a tribe in Monhegan Island, Maine, wore only moccasins and a fringed loin skin. Worse still, you can ruin your whole storefront by marring your window frontage with a sticky mess.
We have been in the signage business since 1913, and have seen and experienced much of what the industry has to offer – to our experts, a little window decal installation is a breeze! It will also feel smooth in contrast to the opposite side, which will be rough or textured by the ink and graphics displayed there.
Since both surfaces are currently wet, you should easily be able to slide the decal around.
Note that large-scale decals often require more than one person to prevent it from rolling it on itself. Not only does this drive in new foot traffic hungry for quality deals, but it brings in old customers who needed a reminder about your brand. This includes price listings and menu items, service information such as which forms or prep is required by customers, and answers to common questions that people pose. After all, this is a socially-conscious time where people understand their dollars count as “votes” they can cast to support companies whose image and ethics align with their own ideals.
But before you can realize your home or work-decorating dream, you’ll need to decide on your frame thickness and edging options. You can choose from mirrored edges, which mirror your imagine around the edge of the entire canvas, or you can opt for a more classic solid-color edging option.
Whether you want to boost productivity in your boardroom with some inspiring prints, or cultivate a warm and welcoming feeling in your office waiting room to put clients and prospects at ease, canvas prints are an excellent choice.
A bit of levity is also recommended in this rooms: some coffee humor is never out of place on a canvas print hanging above the Keurig! This tactic will invite satisfied customers to post about and tag your business via their own social media accounts while encouraging them to involve their own social networks so that they can win a prize, thus boosting traffic to your website. Say for example you are creating signage for two partner businesses on opposite ends of town. For example, say you want to focus on retail stores one month and auto body shops the next – Mailchimp can help you segment your lists to send your customers the emails that are most relevant to them. And the Polaris Office 5 version of the app won the prestigious PCMag Editors’ Choice Award.
They will also know how to combine open and close ended questions to find problems that can be solved by their products, and will listen intently and show empathy towards the potential buyers to make great connections.  Lastly, a great B2B salesperson will be able to ask for the sale without being too pushy.
In your SignWorld business, you will meet many people in the business community and it will often take multiple points of contact before a sale is made.
Most women entrepreneurs have a knack for managing a full schedule and know how and when to move on to the next task.
The relationship must be strong enough to handle that, and totally open communication is absolutely essential if both the marriage and the business are to be a success. We realised that we had the complementary skills to build such a solution, and spent the next few weeks discussing it and setting it up together. However, we have a 5-year-old daughter, which forces us to make an effort to have a bit of family time on weekends.
It was also initially difficult to get used to each other's respective working styles, which are very different. Our award-winning, festival loving horror short MASSACRE AT FEMUR CREEK is now available for purchase on DVD for a great low price. She obtained her copy of Zerviah Newcomb's Chronical from Zerviah's original diary, in the hands of Josiah 3rd himself. Regular window decals have the protective sheet on the back of the image; the decal itself sticks to the front of the window. Make sure the decal is positioned exactly where you like it before moving on to the next step. But every business owners knows that getting word of a great deal out there is crucial if the promotional gambit is going to work. Having this information displayed on a banner makes life easier for customers and staff; rather than having to explain the same things over and over each day, your staff can direct customers to the banners, thereby saving time and getting more out of their work day. Savvy companies understand this; it’s why so many businesses take the time to explain where their products were sourced, and make the effort to say when something is organic, cruelty-free, or environmentally friendly.
For the board room, focus on images that emphasize your corporate culture, since this room will be entertaining most of your prospective clients. With over 27 years in the business, Signworld has established itself as the leader in the no-royalties and no-rules sign business concept.
If you are willing to share the credit with your team, it will be easier to attract and retain great workers. But considering it's an homage to 80's slasher movies, we are proud to announce the film will also be getting a release on VHS format, which is the perfect way to commemorate our little film. However, if you’ve ordered an “inside glass” window decal, the protective sheet will be found on the front of the image.
That’s where banners come in handy, and though many business owners are spending time and money on proximity-based mobile advertising, banners remain one of the most effective means of communicating a message in a non-invasive way.
Posting valuable information on your banners is also a great way to condition your visitors to read this form of signage. If you want to attract more customers, your company needs to have an appealing brand image and organizational culture, and people need to know about it.

By surrounding them with canvas print that embodies your brand, you’ll be able to make a positive impression on your guests, and set the tone for productive meetings. The ongoing support and training along with state-of-the-art equipment helps leave the competition behind. Bearce's Great-aunt, Mary Caroline, lived with Josiah III and Freelove Canfield Bearce for several years, listened to their ancestral stories, and made her own personal copy of Zerviah's diary supplement.
Lawrence to what is now known as Lake Champlain where his party killed several Mohawks in a show of European strength and musketry. Sure, people spend their time on their mobile phones these days, but it’s not to browse advertisements; if somebody wants to look up your promotions, they will, but proximity-based ads are about as appealing to audiences as internet pop-ups. In doing so, you can get more eyes on your promotions, since people will be scanning banners hung around your property for useful information.
For the staff work spaces – or “cubicle culture” as it’s sometimes referred to by its occupants – try to choose imagery that nods towards creativity, work ethic, and inspiration. A coffee company wanting to show off its organic crop-to-cup product cycle could hang banners showcasing the lush green countryside where their beans are harvested, perhaps with a farmer smiling in the foreground, with some brand-relevant text on the front.
Athletic feats of greatness, abstract art, and awe-inspiring nature shots all fit these roles nicely. A truck retailer might want to choose an image of a rough, rugged, and durable explorer forging through the muddy countryside with their truck.
