Did you know that Pinterest and Instagram both launched in 2010? But during the past five year as a business owner, I am sure you’ve been more expose to Instagram. Why did brands adopt Instagram first?… My guess is the concept is simple, user friendly and just a few months ago they began offering paid advertising / media planning to large brands. Does this mean Pinterest should just be treated as the red headed stepchild?
NO! Don’t keep Pinterest on the back burner for too much longer. By signing up for a Pinterest Business account you will have a whole new pinning view!
In a little over a years time, Pinterest has become extremely brand friendly. A promoted posts [media planning] is no longer just for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Make room in your social media budget for Pinterest ads. By logging on to ads.pinterest.com you are now able to choose a pin, pick your demographics then sit back and track your campaign!

Summer is finally here and for those of us in trade organizations, that means one thing, the summer marketing events have begun!
Weekly, you’ll be receiving invitations for cocktail hours, group outings and, our favorite, expos! But, are you ready for your upcoming expos? We can help your booth stand out from the rows of other exhibitors with repetitive stock image graphic hop up stands!
Booking the booth will be the most crucial part of choosing what type of display you will need.
There tend to be three types of booths Expo’s typically utilize; these booths are:
- Standard/ Linear Booths – Also referred to as inline booths, these booths tend to be 10 feet by 10 feet. Only the front is exposed allowing attendees to enter, whereas the sides and back are connected to neighboring exhibitors.
Perimeter Booths – These booths are almost identical to standard booths, however the backing is against the exhibit facility rather than to another exhibitor.
- Island Booths – Sometimes difficult to manage, this booth is surrounded by aisles and are typically 20 feet by 20 feet.
Buying a display stand can get tricky, some questions that are often overlooked are:
Will I be able to travel with this display stand easily?
How easy is this display to set up and break down?
But don’t worry about these questions, we will walk you through everything!
Once you have chosen your booth, contact us and we will go through everything and create a display stand that is sure to attract visitors!
In the meantime, take a look at some of the different types of display stand we supply: http://www.exhibitors-handbook.com/
We’d all like to think of ourselves as kind and generous people. But let’s face it, when we hear about someone’s misfortune we feel bad for a second and go on with our day. That wasn’t the case for us, when we heard about Baby Juniel.
While having a meeting with Eros Cafe, one of our first clients in Rutherford, they told us of their plans to hold a fundraiser for an employee’s 5 month old son that might lose his vision. After hearing the heart breaking story of how doctors found cancerous tumors behind both of baby Juniel eyes, we knew we had to get involved.
Dimitri Valavanis had already set up a fundraiser at Eros Cafe and got a ton of local stores involved. We wanted to design the fundraiser in a way that was eye catching and would allow people to take a look at themselves
After designing and writing the content for the initial flyer, which was posted in local restaurants, we designed and printed handouts to be distributed to people in the town.
Since in person donations would be covered at the fundraiser, we wanted raise money online. So, we set up a Crowdraise page for Baby Juniel and then sent a email blast to our clients. Currently on https://www.crowdrise.com/BabyJuniel , people have generously donated $1,290.
Tonight come out and join the Pix-l Team at Baby Juniel’s Fundraiser, information is below:
We hope to see you there!!
Kicking off 2013, we were determined to set the bar for our clients as well as ourselves; this year we did just that! We are proud to announce our third award this year, the Silver Davey Award for Latino(a)s in Tech Innovation & Social Media #LATISM13 Conference Brand.
Davey Awards derives from the story of David defeating Goliath with a big idea and a little rock. (Fun Fact: That’s what inspired the shape of the award.) Awards are given to highlight the notion that smaller firms with tremendous ideas can exceed budgetary expectations.
LATISM embedded itself in all of our hearts; we’ve worked on LATISM conferences in the past and the principles’ of Pix-l Graphx held seats on the LATISM NYC Chapter Board of Directors. Honored is an understatement to explain how we felt when we got news, we received the Davey award for one of our favorite branding projects!
I hope everyone had a screamtastic Halloween, we know we did!
