Interior wall space at malls can often get as much exposure as outdoor displays. Especially during the holiday season, increased mall traffic can provide an arbitrage of advertising opportunities. Banner frames are the perfect product to create changeable ad displays in unique spaces inside the mall. Since most banner frames can be custom cut to many shapes and sizes, you can get creative with the wall space.

When you introduce the idea that a mall’s wall space can easily be converted to revenue generating assets, you will see the wheels start to turn. Suddenly, every inch of empty wall space becomes a potential gold mine and you have the equipment necessary to produce gold. The best part for sign and print shops is, once the equipment is in place (banner frames), the gold reproduces itself! Meaning, these ads will need to be changed every time a new advertiser leases the space. That equates to new print and install revenue for your business, over and over again. That may not seem like much money when looking at one wall display, but when you look at multiple ad spaces on both the exterior and interior of a mall, the repeat business really starts to add up.

3. Banner Frames on Parking Garage Walls

One often overlooked part of a mall in terms of advertising opportunities, is the parking garage. If you think about it, almost every person that shops at a mall will drive there. A large number of those people will park their vehicle in a parking garage when available. This creates a perfect opportunity to utilize the walls of these parking structures for advertising.

Banner frames are the perfect product to create ad displays on a concrete substrate. Unlike decal wraps, banner frames can be secured to a concrete surface with screws. This eliminates the risk of the media peeling and falling down over time. Once installed, the right banner frame can make future media changes fast, and easy. That means more money in your pocket.
