Free Comic Book Day signage and graphics now available for retailers

Official Press Release

CREST HILL, IL - In an effort to assist comic retailers in better promoting the upcoming Free Comic Book Day event, a signage and graphic program has now been established. Joliet Pattern, an award winning printer and point-of-purchase display company, has teamed up with Diamond Comic Distributors to provide a low-cost, print to order signage program. The program includes a 2 foot by 12 foot horizontal banner, a 4 foot by 5 foot vertical banner, a 24 inch by 30 inch window cling, and a two-sided corrugated plastic yard sign.

"For Free Comic Book Day to be truly successful, the public needs to be made aware of it, and the best way to do that is with some big, bold graphics outside of the comic stores" stated Erik Enervold, Art Director at Joliet Pattern and the initiator of the FCBD signage program. "We really wanted to help support comics and the FCBD program and the best way for us to do that is by offering our graphics and printing services. This is just our little way of helping support this great event. We hope that we can help retailers make this a great event for their stores" he added.

These items are being produced with state-of-the-art digital printing equipment which allows the company to produce short run graphics very quickly and cost effectively. Quantities as low as one print can be produced with out all of the film, material and set-up costs associated with traditional printing.

The company will fill orders as received and ship each order directly to the retailer. These items are being sold to retailers at cost and an informational webpage has now been set up at:

http://www.comicartsonline.org/fcbd.html to help facilitate orders.

In addition to standard sizes and graphics in this program, custom services are also available. "Digital printing allows us quickly produce custom one-of-a-kind graphics directly from a computer file. So, we are able to do custom sizes and graphics if a retailer has special needs or wants to include custom graphics, like their store logo." explained Enervold.
