Audio and Video Now Offered by GH Imaging

We've been in the printing business a while, we've also mastered the art of signs.  We can wrap vehicles, we can design logos, we can print anything from a business card to a banner big enough to cover a building.  We do shirts, both embroidered and printed. We do websites, we do content.  We do signs, we do decals, we can image an entire building or we can just make you a table tent that says "tonight's dinner special."

Well, that's a lot to offer, but we've been down in the secret development department developing a whole new arm to all we offer here at GH Companies.....Audio and Video!

We've brought in some top notch local talent in both copy writing, video filming and production, voice over and audio production for radio spots or web pieces.  We have invested in the latest technology to make sure anything we produce is of national caliber and will help to make your business stand out in an ever increasing world of messaging.

We've done a few videos internally, have a look at what we've done so far.

Take a Tour of GH Construction

If you recall, we showed you ways to maximize your space with a video about "GH Town".  A fictitious city scape where we pointed out a few profit opportunities, a few cosmetic enhancements and a few "must haves" for business, organizations, teams and towns.

Well, our wizard of 3-D Animation, Sterling, was at it again and did us up a really nice walk through of a construction site pointing out some necessities, some ideas for a little safety or maybe even a revenue stream for ya!  Top of mind awareness is always important but then again, having a giant banner at a project explaining what's going on....well, that can save you a whole lot of man hours explaining to passers by and of course, you can use some of our products to make sure your site is safe and secure.  Let's take a stroll through GH Construction!

As you can see, there are a multitude of ways we can outfit your construction site and help with not only the aesthetics, but the over all safety of the project as well as take care of the curiosity of those around the site.

The Company Picnic

I have to admit, as a fairly new addition to the GH Family of companies, this past weekend the annual "company picnic" was held that I was a part of.  It was in a small park in town with the benefit of having the "pavilion" this year which is a highly coveted spot as anyone who's ever booked a company picnic knows that somehow the "pavilion" make you more legit.  :)

From a personal perspective, I like many others thought "Ok, I better go and put an appearance in..." but when I got there I saw a little more than I expected.  Keep in mind, I am fairly new and wasn't expecting what I saw.

There were games for kids and adults, there were treats like popcorn and cotton candy (I nabbed a bag of cotton candy and threw it in the car so as not to be suspect grabbing a kids treat).  There was food, there was music and there was a relaxed and casual atmosphere and people were gladly willing to pitch in and help get things set up, pulled off, cleaned up and torn down.  Conversations were had, people checked up on each other, kids got dirty, parents got blasted with silly really was a great day that managed to get everyone to forget about work and just have a nice time.

Usually, we try to focus on making your business better with our offerings at GH Companies. Usually it's some advice how to look your best outwardly,  but it's important too to take a look inward at your company and remember that it's truly the people within your company who make you shine.

Not everything has to be a high priced endeavor and not everything has to even have a spot with a "pavilion" but the occasional reminder to those who help make your business a success day in and day out is as important as any advertising campaign, as important as any weekly meeting to go over what's going right and what's going wrong and it's also equally important to bring some levity to the never ending push for a better job with more focus and drive.  It doesn't even need to be a company picnic.   Just the occasional stop and chat and offering of "thank you" for a job well done!

Thank You, to all of our employees for what you do!  You are truly appreciated.

A Happy Customer

Do you stop and think about what it takes to truly have a "happy customer"?

It's not always the biggest things they are looking for.  Sometimes it's attention to detail, other times it's remembering someones kids names or the name and occupation of their spouse.  There are those times when you have to go WAY out of your way to please a demanding person, but that's not always a bad thing.  Someone who pays so much attention to making sure they are taken care of, probably doesn't forget who was there to meet their need and who it was that met it on time, on budget and went above expectations.

From a service standpoint, no matter the client size, their needs are important.  It could be a simple order of your most common items, it could be a multi-platform order that pulls from everything you offer.  To you the job might seem small, but to the person on the other end, your's the #1 priority on their plate, and they came to YOU to help with it.  That's an honor right there!

At GH Companies, we work hard on every level to make sure that if someone is spending $100 bucks to $10,000 bucks to let them know they are important.  We work hard to let them know that we wish to truly be a "partner" in their success and that what might be a small order today, in time....will grow along with the success of our client, and in return our success grows because we were able to pay attention to the details, take the extra step and make someone's tasks a little easier.

It's a simple task really, elevate your customers and in return your business will grow.

How can we go above expectations for you today?

Wrap It Up!

Sometimes, you might see a vehicle driving around town all wrapped up in a message.  A rolling billboard if you will and you might think "Wow, that's pretty indulgent."  Not so fast....

What some might consider vanity, is really a very practical and smart way to advertise your business.  Let's take a look at a few things about a vehicle wrap you might otherwise not think of.

First, your presence.  Do you really think people are diving into phone books anymore looking for your product or service?  Is a TV ad campaign out of your reach?  Do you wonder about the value of newspaper or radio?  A billboard for a month along a stretch of road reaches a lot of people, but will they remember it?  Your vehicle properly wrapped with state of the art graphics and techniques will provide you years of visibility and if you are looking to advertise on cost per point of impression, the cost of the wrap will end up being less than you would pay for a cup of coffee per day over the lifespan of the wrap.

Next, let's talk a little about the wrap.  It's not a fail safe at all,'s a layer of protection for your vehicle.  It will make the chance of a light scratch or maybe a shopping cart hitting it have less of an impact.  It's printed on durable vinyl and printed with UV protected inks that will assure you don't have to worry about the job fading in a year and finally, your "advertising department" is mobile!  It's getting into neighborhoods while you work, it's standing out on a street corner at a stop light, it's in the parking lot at a high school football game and let's say you want to enter a parade..... you've got your own custom float!  Ok, the parade might be a little extensive but you get the idea!

Stand Out!  Be seen!  Invest in your company and your bottom line for pennies a day.  Consider a vehicle wrap from GH Imaging or if you have a trailer or box truck and want to get the word out maybe look into the Power Grip Frame System.  An even more affordable way to get the message out.

Small Town Doesn't Mean Low Quality!

5879 is the total population of Dowagiac Michigan according to the 2010 U.S. Census.  That qualifies Dowagiac as Small Town America by every definition of the term.  The kind of town you'd be proud to be from and the kind of town we'd all like to live in, having just what you you need for the day to day living comfortably with good friends and neighbors close by.

For 25 years, Dowagiac, which is also known as "The Grand Old City" has been putting on events like the one we see here.  The 25th annual "Rod and Roll Classic Auto Show.  Where did they turn for the event t's?  You got it!  GH Apparel!

Just because Dowagiac is a small town, doesn't mean they want to slack on the image of this festival or the people who attend it!  25 years is a quarter of a century, and that is a LONG time to keep anything going.  We're proud to partner with Dowagiac in making sure that their silver anniversary car show comes off looking awesome!

Notice the bright color and cool custom graphics?

How about the super support for the business that helped pull off the car show?

It's all in a days work for us here at GH Companies!  We pay attention to details because we know that the details and impressions are what make memories.  The Dowagiac Chamber put's this event on and we are proud to help make their members and their city look their best in celebrating 25 years of Roddin and Rollin!

Unity Festival Begins Tonight!

Anyone can put up a few tents, hire a sound company and some bands, pull up a few wagons to sell hot dogs and elephant ears out of, but in our hometown of Muskegon Michigan, one stands out.

We have a LOT of pop up festivals and we are happy to work with all of them on different levels, but we really pour our time, talent and energy into the Unity Festival which kicks off at Heritage Landing tonight.

Unity is a multi-day contemporary Christian music festival that draws people in from all over the Midwest to enjoy music, family, community and praise.  The festival is a great gathering place for people who want to worship through song, enjoy some of the biggest names in the contemporary Christian music scene or just have a safe and family friendly atmosphere to go enjoy summertime in Michigan!

If you are coming to Unity, keep an eye out for the GH logo.  You should see plenty of it everywhere and to be honest….we’re not really worried about the logo being a call to action as much as we are proud to support such a fantastic event.  We’ll hopefully see you in Muskegon for Unity 2015.
