Golden Age Village glass coaster workshop:

Golden Age Village glass coaster workshop:

 

We are excited about Sign Therapy’s first application activity. The elderly at Golden Age Village will be taught how to use an ordinary sign product such as vinyl and transform a little throw away piece of glass into a beautiful coaster.

 

Sign Therapy’s vision is to regularly visit old age homes and entertain the residents with hours of signage fun. The sign industry, in essence, makes use of stickers to transform blank canvasses into mighty tools of communication.

This method of transferring objects from one substrate to another is wonderful for the enhancement of hand eye co-ordination whilst in a complete state of relaxation.

 

Just what our elderly need. More rest and more fun.

 

If you would like to participate, please give me a ring on 072 282 7831.

Louw Venter besoek Verswakte Sorgsentrum

Louw Venter besoek Verswakte Sorgsentrum

 

Wanneer Louw Venter vir jou kyk kan jy die waarheid vlak in sy oë sien. ‘n Man wat diep insig in die mens het. Dieselfde insig wat ek in sy ma gevind het en wat in sy ouma, Bee Louw, ‘n pasient by La Reynette Centre van geweef is.

Louw Venter is nie verniet so geliefd as ‘n karakter akteur in flieks soos Semi-Soet  en The Last Tango nie want karakter is wat hy het. Dit vloei deur hom soos bloed deur die are.

Sy vinnige draai hier in Krugersdorp vanaf sy tuiste in die Kaap het ons almal laat smag na meer. Louw, jy is pragtig en wees verseker dit is ons plesier om agter jou ouma Bee te kyk. Ouma Bee het daardie spesiale gawe om jou tien voet lank te laat voel net omdat jy jou werk doen deur haar te versorg. Die seëninge vloei deur haar mond en mens voel hoe dit jou tref sonder ophou.

 

Julle is ‘n spesiale familie met ‘n moedertjie wat net nooit ophou gee nie. Dieselfde gawe is aan julle oorgedra en bruis deur julle woorde. Ons waardeer julle teenwoordigheid in ons lewens.

 

Louw Venter is ook nou te siene op die Kassie in die reeks Swartwater.

Well done Hospice West

“Be awake and strengthen those left over, whom are at the point of dying,” tt was with this scripture at mind I called Hospice.

I figured when it comes to dying, speaking to them would be the smart thing to do. I was informed of a course on communication, counselling and life skills starting in February this year.

La Reynette Centre’s management agreed to subsidize the course and allowed me to attend every Monday between 9.30am to 12.30pm.

Never having seen a corpse, I strengthened my senses when walking into the Hospice room where most students already picked their seats. I sat myself down on the last seat, closest to the door.

Good thing, I thought. At least I can make a quick escape when things get too strange.

It has been three months since that day and my life has decidedly changed. I thought I would find the dead but Hospice is all about the living. This course have the most intriguing truths locked up in its presentation and pulls one out of old habits and catapults the being to higher understanding. Understanding being the virtue of faith.

Hospice tutor, Barbara Crawford, is absolutely fabulous. Her warmth draws the emotion of the person from darkness to the light. Tisa elevated the mood with informed practical advice and hilarious comic relief.

I met the most amazing people in Helga, Yolanda, Ellen, Eve, Nomsa, Barry, Graham, Shirley, Jane, Elsie, and most refreshingly Thabiso. All of you made this journey just so much more colorful. I thank you all.

On our final day we were all required to bring something special with. I brought a poem that told of the passing of my mother last year. When it was my turn to speak, I found myself standing in front of the class, talking about the last day of my mother’s life. I felt comfortable and warm, yet I doubt that anybody remembered that I told the class right in the beginning that public speaking was my Archile’s heel.

Well done Hospice West Gauteng, you are a truly remarkable people.

Branding is Fun

Why is branding a vehicle fun?

Using a vehicle as a message carrier is a powerful marketing and advertising tool. Vehicles are 3D objects. In outdoor marketing language you are in possession of a supa-pack advertising unit worth thousands of Rands per month.

Is it not expensive to brand a vehicle?

Fun Part Number 1: By using your vehicle as an advertising tool you save at least R 7000.00 per month.

Being displayed on a 3D object your business comes alive.

Branding and packaging is all important to obtain the visibility your business / organization deserves.

How bold should my advertising be?

Fun Part Number 2: Full colour imagery impacts magically on a large audience on a daily basis. Your opposition is envious and your business exudes success and competency.

How does branding impact on safety and security issues?

Fun Part Number 3: Instill confidence in your target market. Delivery / repair / installations vehicles are super cool when your company is immediately recognized by your customer / client. This reinforce peace of mind.

 How can branding a vehicle possibly have any outdoor advertising merits?

 Fun Part Number 4: Your company receives all the outdoor marketing advantages that any other third party advertising units such as Pole Ads, Billboards and Suburban Signs can offer.

  • Your competitors advertising is not adjacent to your ad and therefore cannot dilute the importance of your message
  • An average vehicle is ‘in your face’ visible for at least 12 hours on the roads without being ‘paged’ past as is in the case of newspapers and magazines
  • Some arterial roads carry up to 25 000 vehicles per day, making an impact on at least 25 000 possible clients daily
  • Your vehicle will be seen repeatedly. The brain therefore reacts by remembering your product or company by keeping it ‘Top of Mind’
  • Your marketing expenditure on your vehicle is tax deductible
  • Your advert does not cost your customer / client anything to see it. Other marketing tools require that your customer must purchase the message carrier such as newspapers and magazines
  • You marketing savings tallies to a minimum of R7000.00 per vehicle per month with a gains marketing exposure worth R 588 000.00 over a seven year period.

How much will every OTS (opportunity to see or impact) cost me per person?

Fun part number 5: Expenditure dilution – 25 000 onlookers daily (arterial road) = 750 000 impacts per month.

750 000 x 12 months x 7 years = 5, 250 000 divided by capital expenditure of

R13 000.00 for branding = .0024 cent per impact. Making branding your vehicle the most powerful third party advertising tool in your business.

Is vehicle branding not costly to replace in case of an accident?

Fun part number 6: Your branding can be insured. Make sure your insurance company understands your business requirements and negotiate the importance of branding your vehicles from the get go.

Is it not very expensive to brand a vehicle properly?

Fun part number 7: Marketing your business on third party units will stretch your artwork expenditure over three to twelve months, depending on your budget.

Branding your vehicles will stretch the capital investment you made over a period no less than seven years.

Won’t the same artwork on a vehicle become wall paper after seven years?

Fun part number 8: Advertising the logo of your company is all important to insure market share and reliability. It can never be wall paper as it represents the heartbeat and signature of who you are.

However, when a vehicle was in an accident, use the insurance money to change the advert or message if needed.

Design from the start with the option of adding and subtracting. Balance short and long term elements of your company such as front runner products versus promotions and specials.

This will afford you the flexibility to spend less by branding half cover at first and add-ons at a later stage when the right budget or new products comes into play.

How much will it cost me to brand my vehicle?

Fun part number 9: Based on the size of a Renault Senic –

Full colour artwork, half wrap   R  4 900.00

Full colour artwork, full wrap    R 13 000.00

Spot branding from as little as R      450.00 per square meter excl. application

Material – 7 year cast vinyl with UV laminate

-Artwork origination from as little as R 250.00 per design to R 2 500.00

Logo design R 350.00 per design.

How can I afford branding my vehicles in this economic environment?

Fun part number 10: Depending on your relationship with your bank, your vehicle branding project can be financed.

Being a delivery or logistics company, clearly marking your vehicles as a trusted delivery agent is a pre-requisite to be allowed on the property where goods are delivered. E.g. Pick ‘n Pay do not allow unmarked on their terrain due to security issues.

Important details such as these increase your chances of getting financing to brand your fleet.

Branding your vehicle the fun way will lift your visibility in the market place and amplify your voice loud and clear in places where you can not be.
