By | July 25th, 2017|Christmas Decorations, Lighting, Tips|0 Comments

Angel lights, also known as fairy lights, string lights or seed lights, are often kept stored in the attic or closet until Christmas time rolls around. But these unique and pretty lights can be used for everyday décor, year round lighting, and even the most unconventional applications. Transform a seemingly simple object into something beautiful or create the perfect atmosphere in your home, patio, garden or office. No matter what time of year it is, angel lights are perfect for stylish and clever decoration. First, it important to know your options since Angel lights come in several styles. Be sure to purchase outdoor angel lights if you’re using them for your patio or garden. These are weatherproof, waterproof, and suitable for using outside. Different light options include LED, 12V, and 24V. It is also a good idea to choose the size and shape of the bulb. Small bulbs create a Christmas-light look and are good for year-round use.

The Best Time to Order Commercial Christmas Decor

By | July 18th, 2017|Commercial Christmas Decoration, Portfolio, Tips|0 Comments

With Summer season in full swing, most of us are reveling in thoughts of family vacations, trips to the beach and barbeque get-togethers, while many businesses are celebrating company picnics and working around employee vacations.  During summertime, planning holiday décor for your business property may be the furthest thing from anyone’s mind.  You may think it’s much too early to think about Christmas décor. The truth is, the best time to begin planning a Holiday Décor program for your company property is right NOW. The most memorable and magical Christmas programs happen when you plan and prepare well in advance.  So as you plan your summer concert calendar and finalize the menu for the company picnic, you may also want to call a meeting with the team to start planning your property's Christmas décor. Unfortunately, the magic of Christmas doesn’t just happen magically. Depending on your budget, the size of your property and your desired décor, a holiday program can take several months of planning, design, preparation and fabrication, before one Christmas lightbulb can be installed. Commercial decorating companies often work with theme parks, shopping centers and cities to provide show-stopping holiday programs, and procrastinating on your holiday décor program may have [...]

Marketing Your Commercial Business with Vinyl Graphics

By | July 12th, 2017|Banners, Tips|0 Comments

In today’s competitive marketplace, it takes well-coordinated marketing and advertising to attract consumers to your business.  When you plan your marketing campaign, you may think to use traditional advertising such as newspaper and radio ads, or online advertising such as web ads and social networks. However, if you’re not including storefront marketing in your strategy, you could be missing out on the most accessible consumers of all -- neighbors, shoppers, and tourists who can readily bring business through your door. Inexpensive and invaluable advertising To attract customers to your storefront, especially if your business is new, you need to stand out from the crowd. An effective way to do this is the use of vinyl graphics. Using vinyl graphics to market your business can transform your shop from dull and dreary to eye catching and exciting. A well-placed graphic on your window façade offering discounts, sales or new products can attract curious shoppers. It’s an inexpensive way to increase brand awareness, attract the eye of potential new customers and is a creative method of getting your messages across. Window graphics can also create curiosity, as they shield the inside of your premises from being completely seen. If a potential customer is intrigued [...]

Christmas Angels in June

By | June 29th, 2016|Christmas Decorations, Commercial Christmas Decoration, Portfolio|0 Comments

It may have been the last weekend of June but it was looking a lot like Christmas throughout The Big A! A giant 24’ Christmas tree, decorated in Angels logos with red and green ornamentation, was placed out front for everyone to see. The tree sat on top of a custom graphic base, made especially for the event. A Season’s Greetings sign was lit under the main entrance and over-sized garlands and wreaths hung throughout the stadium. We here at Dekra-Lite, the premier provider of commercial Christmas décor and lighting, are pleased to work closely with Angels Baseball and help make this year’s “Christmas in June” event a success. For three days, Angels fans enjoyed a holly jolly Christmas celebration filled with custom Angels décor and other unique decor items found throughout the ball park. With products as unique as The Big A, we here at Dekra-Lite would like to thank Angles Baseball for letting us turn Angels Stadium into a Christmas wonderland. We look forward to next year’s event and can’t wait to show you what we have in store for 2017. Happy Holidays!
