Directors Chair Buyer’s Guide

A Buyer’s Guide for Directors Chairs

The beauty industry excels when it comes to drama with everything from advertising, signage, and music to the stylish beauty counselors. To cite an example from a New York department store. One of our major beauty clients launched a new line, and women were lined up outside the store before it opened.

For women, there’s nothing quite like being invited to sit in a sleek director’s chair for a complimentary beauty make over. The emotional high and beautiful results usually translate into major sales. In this case, the average sale was $250.00. There’s something to be learned from their techniques.

At a Chicago footwear show, we customized four metal director’s chairs with the product logo, a dynamic exhibit space and three six foot show banners featuring the athletic shoes plus the basketball celebrity spokesperson. Fans loved the director’s chair and photo op meet and greet. The event was so successful, the client could barely keep up with the demand.

Why not create a high impact themed event using our Factory Priced Director’s Chairs with your logo, graphics, or artwork on the back of the chairs. These top quality directors chairs for trades shows are made of hardwood or metal and built to last. Our extensive selection of folding director’s chairs can easily be branded using various printing and embroidering techniques.

Depending on your niche market, consider creating an event featuring Spider-Man, Captain Kirk, or a Madonna look-a-like in a customized director’s chair complete with your corporate logo and colors. There’s no shortage of actors looking for extra work. Hold a drawing every hour with the actor greeting people, sharing product highlights, handling the microphone and the drawing. Don’t forget the photos.

  • We can print single or multiple color logos
  • Accurate PMS or Pantone Color matching
  • Printed Inks are heat sealed for a long life

Printing and Embroidery Options

Photofilm and Thermofilm are both heat transfer processes that allow you to apply simple text or images at an affordable price. Photofilm allows you to print a large image and transfer it via heat onto your canvas. The benefit of this process is that it can be an image with gradients, even photographic! Photofilm is an excellent option for someone on a budget and looking for a more mural like image on their directors chairs.

Like photofilm, Thermofilm Text and Logos utilizes a heat transfer technique. High quality urethane film is transferred onto either side or both sides of the canvas with either simple text options or you can utilize your logo. The benefit of this process is the cost, but you are limited by color choices vs. silk screening with a vast range of color options. Choose from our stock inventory and colors or provide a vector based file and we can do a thermofilm version of your logo in one of our stock colors.

We offer both Text Embroidery and Custom Embroidery for a more classic personalized look. With Text Embroidery you can choose from our library of fonts and stock colors to customize either side of your canvas.Text embroidery is the budget minded option. Custom embroidery is a very cool process! You provide an image or logo and we digitize it to create an entire image utilizing our stock threads. The effect is very impressive and adds a level of elegance to your Directors chair. The Las Vegas example above is just one example of custom embroidery.

The last custom option is our Full Color, Full Print Canvas Sets and Backs. This process is essentially offers edge to edge printing in unlimited colors utilizing full color dye sublimation. In other words, the desired graphic image is printed in a manner that dyes the fabric and the fabric is then sewn into a canvas set.
