Happy Labor Day from Heritage Printing

Happy Labor Day

 

Labor Day is a nationally celebrated holiday that pays tribute to the working men and women in the United States and Canada.  Many people view it as a “Goodbye to Summer” with a last dash to the beach. The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City.

Did you know?

  • Oregon was the first state to make Labor Day a legal holiday in 1887

  • By the time the holiday was officially signed into law by President Grover Cleveland in 1894, 23 states already had their own celebrations

  • In many other countries, May Day (May 1st) is the day working people are honored, though the date of May 1 was chosen because the American Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions demanded an eight-hour workday, to come in effect as of May 1, 1886

  • Labor Day has become an important weekend for retail sales, said to be second only to Black Friday sales. Ironically, this means more than 24 percent of all workers in the U.S. (retail workers) may work harder and longer on Labor Day

Event Towers – Affordable, Reusable & Effective

An issue often encountered with trade shows are the custom displays, especially the cost and logistics. Being seen and remembered is critical, it’s why you attend the event, but getting your company management to invest in an expensive, cumbersome display is difficult. And if it arrives damaged, you are really in a mess.

Fear Not! We have the solution, EVENT TOWERS!

We make your custom event tower to your specifications, double side printed with your brand and message (every panel can be unique) in sizes up to 10’ tall.

What is an event tower?

Custom printed PVC, cut to assemble in a “scissor like” manner, creating a tall event display.

We use 6mm PVC sheets to print your company message on the panels, cut the sheet to exact dimensions with our CNC router and prepare for packaging. The panels will easily stack in the provided box for storage and logistical purposes.

Assembly is easy, the panels interlock to form an “open cube” display. Unlike a puzzle, you can position any panel to the location on the display as you please, if you have a panel with your “call to action” it can be positioned at eye level. We provide feet to assist in stability, but we do not recommend using event towers for outdoor events, they are not resistant to wind.

The beauty of the towers is twofold, they are an eye-catcher and they disassemble easily to fit into a small box! Many event displays have logistical issues, a one-use display is expensive, we offer a display that captures attention and is reusable numerous times.

Our Art Department can design almost any artwork into the panels, we made shelves for a medical tower. We even made a 10’ towers for a hair product provider, that was two years ago, and he still uses them at trade shows across the southeast.

We want your business and enjoy working for it. Our ability to in-house design, manufacture and deliver custom event displays is impressive, we have amazed thousands of event attendees with our custom event displays.
