About Printed Hoardings:

The printed hoarding is one of the most common forms of hoarding that can be found outdoors, around construction sites of all shapes and sizes. Design for printed hoardings is more than just about the look and feel; there are many considerations around printed hoarding development.

How to Create Impactful Printed Hoardings

Below, you can find different ways to utilise a printed hoarding. Following these steps will help make your advertisement more impactful.

  • Know the goal: A business should set specific goals before designing a printed hoarding. It should be noted that the graphics and the content of a hoarding are crucial. You should have a clear understanding of the outcome you want to achieve with your printed hoarding. The message that the brand wants to convey is also an important factor that needs to be taken into account.
  • Understand the demographics: This is one of the initial steps to follow before embarking on any marketing campaign. It is important to find out the requirements of the audience for whom the hoarding is to be designed. Thorough research of the local demographics is always a great idea. It will help create a message that can enhance effective communication.
  • Consult a trusted partner: It is always helpful to consult someone with considerable experience, for they have the ability to design the hoarding perfectly. You should aim to get help from an agency that can provide quality assistance in design, printing and installation of the hoarding. A proper collaboration can deliver unique and creative results.
  • Play by the rules: Like any marketing campaign, you must follow a certain set of rules while placing a printed hoarding. These apply to both the physical and the visual design of the hoarding. There are often certain safety considerations too that may be overlooked without a suitably qualified team of fitters.

The effectiveness of printed hoarding depends on these factors. To get overall assistance from the experts, get in touch with Reade Signs. We have a dedicated team to design and produce hoardings. Our expert team of fitters will help with installing the printed hoardings too.

4 Different Types of Hoardings that are Commonly Used

Hoarding designs are generally printed on ACM (sometimes known as Dibond) panels, which are affixed to the plywood hoarding itself. This is an effective promotional technique where a business can advertise to a mass audience with relatively little effort and maintenance. As hoardings are required for safety purposes anyway, it makes sense to utilise the extensive meterage for marketing too, particularly if you’re keen to sell property off-plan. Using printed hoardings helps to convey messaging without resorting to personalised, hyper-targeted advertising strategies, which can be more costly and come into play later in the sales journey.

If you work with an expert partner, hoardingscan be so much more than powerful advertisements. They also enhance the sense of professionalism and the company’s brand value with site staff, as well-designed hoarding simply makes sites look great.

Light-up signs or LEDs can be used along with the printed hoardings to make the hoardings stand out by night.

Generally, you might find these 4 common hoardings in and around the property.

What are The Different Types of Printed Hoardings?

Construction Hoarding

Surrounding construction sites,these hoardings generally include promotional content, including visualisations of the completed site, who the development is targeted at (E.G. retirement community, family plot) and even recruitment ads for the developers. With such high footfall around many construction sites, it’s an unmissable marketing opportunity for the new development.

Event Hoarding

Event hoardings are commonly found outside or around office buildings or event venues. These custom signs can be installed at any place where an event is taking place. They can also serve as a wayfinding solution, particularly useful at huge venues such as the NEC.

Development Hoardings

The role of developmenthoardings is to promote new developments and hopefully generate off-plan interest. These hoardings are put up to inform potential buyers about the development and enhance brand messaging. They are commonly found adjacent to pathways and busy traffic zones where most people can view them. 3D signs are sometimes used on printed hoardings to garner increased attention.

Retail Hoardings

This type of hoarding is mostly found near retail stores and shopping centres. They may be used for cosmetics, garments or FMCG product promotions. These hoardings are also used as indoor signs to encourage impulse purchases.
