Congratulations to partners Curtis DeSchutter & Jason Lemky on the opening of 4 new A & W Restaurants in Comber, Leamington, Strathroy & Goderich.

I remember being among the first of many visitors during the first week of the opening of Windsor’s first A & W in South Windsor, back in the day. A cold frosty root beer was a welcomed treat on a hot summer day, and sitting in the car with my family and the tray hanging from the car window seemed much “groovier” than going inside. Come to think of it, I can’t remember there being any inside sit down area to eat in those first outlets. It was a Drive-In for goodness sakes.

Anyways Curtis & Jason thanks again for allowing Wheeler’s to be a part of the opening of your 4 new locations with the printing of 56,000 flyers.

Wheelers Loves FastSigns

Ok, I have a confession, I am in love with FastSigns Windsor (@FASTSIGNS658)

FastSigns Windsor is always dependable, reliable and very competitively priced. Like Wheeler’s Printing, FastSigns Windsor has tackled social media head-on and their latest is their MetamorphoSIGN contest. The whole idea is for companies to enter the contest and then rally up all their friends, family and colleagues to vote for their company to get a sign makeover worth $10,000!

Now I have to say, we here at Wheeler’s are very proactive in making sure our equipment and software are always up to date as to most effectively assist our customers. In fact we just installed a brand-spanking new digital colour machine which you will be hearing about more in the near future. One thing however, that has gone by the wayside, is our signage. The original signs which were installed in 1994 are still up there attached to the building. We could really use a $10,000 make-over but we need your help in doing so! Below, you will find the contest. We are the very first entry (ENTRY#1) which is great, but you have to click NEXT 50 till you get to the last page, then scroll all the way to the bottom, click on our entry (ENTRY#1) and click VOTE FOR US.


Whats in it for you? Every time you vote, you get entered to win a $50 American Express Gift card from FastSigns but wait, that’s not all! As an added bonus, if you vote for Wheeler’s and win the $50 from FastSign, Wheeler’s will award the winner ‘s company an additional $200 credit towards a printing, copying or promotional products purchase OR a $100 gift card to Mezzo Ristorante, the choice is yours! What are you waiting for?

So help spread the FastSigns love and get voting and remember that you can vote again everyday now until September 2!

The mission:

- find an appropriate sized clear box for packaging 3 skin lotions along with application pads. Boxes need to ship flat to the packaging plant, be crystal clear and preferably an off-the-shelf product rather than a more expensive custom sized box. Customer wanted some form of clear seal to offer anti-tampering security, and above all not detract from the product inside. In addition to the box, an informational insert with application instructions laid out in easy to read fashion was required.

Mission accomplished.

Maybe you wouldn’t have considered us for packaging needs, but you’d be surprised at the knowledge and expertise our crew has. Since 1994.

Taa-Daaa – another job well done by the Wheeler’s gang.

May 2011 — FedEx Office (formerly FedEx Kinko’s), an operating company of FedEx Corp., released the results of its fourth annual Signs of the Times national survey of small businesses.  The study finds that:

While many small business owners plan to reach existing and potential customers online and through social media, more than half (53%) will turn to more traditional channels like newsletters and direct mail.

 

Tactics to Reach Potential and Existing Customers %
Plan to increase communication via newsletters, direct mail, etc. 53%
Plan to create or improve company’s online presence (website,  banner ads, SEO) 52%
Plan to utilize social media and networking websites (e.g., Twitter,  Facebook, LinkedIn) 45%

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Traditional advertising/marketing tools continue to be popular with small business owners.

The majority of small business owners (91%) believe that the quality of a company’s marketing/advertising materials reflects the quality of its products and services. Despite this connection, nearly a quarter (23%) say their own marketing/advertising materials do not reflect the quality of their products and services.


About the survey:  FedEx Office, in conjunction with the Ketchum Global Research Network, worked with Braun Research to conduct the third annual FedEx Office Signs of the Times Small Business Survey. The survey polled small business owners who employ 5 to 100 employees and own firms that generate over $100,000 in annual revenue. A total of 505 interviews were completed; the margin of error is +/-4.38 percent at the 95 percent confidence level. Online interviews were conducted March 2011.
