How do you get advertising space on the wall?

The wall almost always belongs to a seller or company. Each of you can lease the space to advertisers. If you belong to a provider, the process is easier, although you may have to pay for this convenience. If a company owns the space, it will need landlord approval and may need to obtain building permits.

Those who decide against a vendor can scout locations, which can take days, and even then there's no guarantee the landlord will want to lease the space. At least with a provider you know the space is regularly used for advertising.

Is wall advertising legal?

Yes and no.

wall advertising issimilar to wild post, in the sense that there are many ways to do it right, but if you don't know the rules or aren't trying to do it right, you could be breaking the law. Having an agency that will work with you and know the policies is one way to avoid this problem.

The most important thing is to obtain the owner's consent. Get the green light in writing and agree on the size of the mural.

Also find out about local regulations. Los Angeles, for example, makes artistic and promotional distinctions between murals that contain more than 3% text and those that don't, although the latter can be a great representation of a logo.

Who paints the murals in the advertisements?

Street artists create most of the paintings for vendors. Sometimes an advertiser would like a specific artist to paint the mural, perhaps one of themfollow not instagramhas a unique style. Painting starts with a base coat, then the artist paints more detail in subsequent steps.

Sometimes two painters work on it, so it takes less time to paint. One painter can work on the left side and another on the right, or painters can split the top and bottom of the wall.

How big are the billboards?

Size varies from project to project because wall sizes are different. A standard size can range from 10 feet x 20 feet to 10 x 15 to 15 x 14, but we've seen them up to 56 feet tall. The bigger the place, the more you have to pay.

How long do posters last?

Most rent for four weeks, like any standard outdoor media room. Others may stay three months or even longer; Some companies leave the murals forever and use them as trademarks or memorials.

Instagram and Wall Advertising: A Combination Made for Clicks

The Complete Guide to Wall Advertising: Cost, Legal, and More (4)We have definitely noticed a growing demand for this form of advertising in recent years. If you can attribute the recent wall advertising renaissance to anything, it might be the rise of Instagram users. Murals get a second life when someone takes a picture of them and posts it on Instagram. Clever, well-crafted ads or ads painted by a well-known artist often go viral and expose the ad to far more people than they would have seen in person.

For example, Kendall Jenner got 7.9 million views on Instagram promoting an Adidas message in front of one of the company's murals, which earned her tremendous exposure.

More things to consider when using wall advertising

The Complete Guide to Wall Advertising: Cost, Legal, and More (5)Here are some other insider tips we gleaned while running billboards for clients:

  • Have a concept for your mural ready at least two weeks before you start painting. This preparation will keep costs down.
  • Understand that wall advertising requires an investment of time and money. We don't recommend skimping on murals - it shows when they're done on the cheap and makes your brand look bad.
  • Mural companies in New York and Los Angeles are common, and Brooklyn has murals everywhere. We've also seen great examples in Austin, Chicago and Portland, Oregon, as well as several under development in Dallas.
  • Murals seem to work best in places with a good artistic culture.
