The Rusty Marquee Lights Up "Fletch" Holiday Pop-Up Party!

We are committed to making high quality marquee lights and producing custom lights to suit whatever demands and occasions our customers may have. Our biggest reward is to be part of a successful event and to see everyone enjoying the party and appreciating the product of our hard work.

Just recently, The Rusty Marquee unfolded another milestone as we collaborated with the gorgeous Joelle "Jojo" Fletcher of Fletch, a well-known lifestyle and clothing shop.  Jojo, best known for her time on ABC's The Bachelor and her lead on ABC's The Bachelorette, launched her very first clothing brand this summer.  The Holiday Pop-Up Party was held on November 17th in Brooklyn, New York. Fashion enthusiasts and party people got the first dibs on the latest pieces of the Fletch collection while enjoying shopping with their girlfriends over cocktails, pizza and upbeat music.

One of the biggest hits during the all-night party was The Rusty Marquee's custom logo 6 foot 4 inch Fletch marquee light. It literally illuminated the entire venue and thousands of guests couldn't help but strike a pose with the marquee lights as their backdrop. It was indeed an Instagram worthy event!

The process started with Fletch forwarding The Rusty Marquee their logo with the idea to put their brand in lights.  From there, The Rusty Marquee started with a Computer Aided Design (CAD) using the original Fletch logo with a slightly bolded look to accommodate the large bulbs and to give the structure enough strength to stand.

Once the CAD was approved for production by the Fletch Team, The Rusty Marquee welders meticulously worked on these lights, ensuring that each marquee light is in line with our set quality standards and the finished product is nothing but exceptional!

Fletch and The Rusty Marquee's goal with these marquee lights was to make a extremely easy to spot photo op keeping with the Fletch brand and making it a recognizable brand.  It's safe to say that the sign was a success, just look at the amount of likes some of the guests received on their instagrams.  What a way to attract amazing publicity!  Just imagine what The Rusty Marquee can do for your branding!

It was a night filled with fashion, dancing, drinks, and overall fun. We are truly honored to be part of this successful party!  A huge thank you to everyone at the Fletch team and most importantly the amazing Jojo fans for making the Fletch pop-up party a blast and for making us your only choice when it comes to custom marquee lights.

5 Modern Rustic Home Ideas

Our home is a place where we relax and unwind after a stressful day at work. Aside from being a shelter, our home is a special place where we create special memories with our loved ones. That being said, this place should be designed in such a way that is both appealing to every member and also conducive to relaxation. Something that would make anyone excited to come home. 

There are endless possibilities in designing your home. Some prefer the old school look while others would rather embrace the newer home designs. How about a mix of the old and the new? By mixing furniture pieces, you can create a modern rustic vibe that is a hybrid of chic and traditional home styling. Here’s a guide on how to create a modern rustic feel for your own space. 

Carefully Select Handcrafted Furniture

Designing your home with handcrafted materials will give it a unique and refreshing look. Woven candle holders blend smoothly to a modern rustic theme that you are emphasizing. 

 

Choose and Stick To Your Color Theme

Keep in mind that neutral tones are your key colors in creating a rustic ambiance. Stick to shades of brown, warm beige, and add a hint of some greens for that warm and cozy feel.

 

 

Opt For Modern Stools

Since we wanted the old-meets-new home theme, you need to add modern furniture pieces and make sure it creates balance with classic pieces. This modern steel stool creates harmony with the wooden tabletop. 

 

Invest In Leather Furnishings

Now that we have natural and modern pieces, it’s time to work on something that would never go out of style. A leather couch will add richness to your interior and make it look more sophisticated. 

 

Modern Lighting Pieces

Instead of using the traditional lights, try to incorporate a modern way of illuminating your place. Industrial lighting can highlight your living room. Adding some old school lamp to side tables is also a good idea. The use of Marquee lights instantly accentuate any part of your house and adds more life to it. It can be a letter, symbol, or even a custom Marquee! Hang it or let it stand on its own and let it give your home some added style.

5 Tips for Creating an Awesome Atmosphere for your Restaurant

Let’s face it: just serving great food isn’t enough to make a restaurant successful. The fact is that customers will always look at your restaurant first before they even step inside to check out the menu. This is why it’s so important to create an awesome atmosphere for your restaurant. An awesome atmosphere will not only get customers in the door, it will also keep those customers coming back, hopefully with their friends in tow.

Here are 5 tips for creating that awesome restaurant atmosphere:

  1. Come up with a concept

The restaurant concept will be the central theme that connects every detail in your restaurant. For example, if you settle on a Hollywood diner theme, you would serve All-American cuisine like burgers and steaks, while your décor could include famous movie scenes and custom marquee lights that look like the front of a theater. You can even go the extra mile and have your staff dress up as iconic actors. 

  1. Know your customers

A big factor in creating that awesome atmosphere is determining what kind of customers you want to attract. Do you want your place to cater mainly to families going out for dinner, employees on their lunch hour, students looking for a place to hang out, or couples looking for a romantic spot? The answer will let you know how to what kind of mood to set in your restaurant. 

  1. Light up the room

Lighting is a big part in achieving the ambiance you want to set for your restaurant. In fact, there are businesses that specialize in proper lighting. When thinking about lighting, it’s important to keep your restaurant concept in mind. For a family-friendly setting, bright and playful lights are a great choice, while a more romantic setting would call for more subdued lighting. Using Marquee lights is also a bright idea as it improves the overall design of your restaurant while also illuminating the entire place.

  1. Decorate the walls

Put decorations up on your restaurant walls to give the atmosphere an extra boost. Place antique-looking marquee lights on the wall of your vintage-inspired restaurant, or hang a few paintings for your sophisticated café. 

  1. Pay attention to the audio

The sounds that your diners will hear in your restaurant contribute to the overall dining experience, so it makes sense to consider the acoustics. Just imagine a couple trying to have a romantic dinner while loud noises emanate from the kitchen. Improving the acoustics could be as simple as changing the table layout, or may involve putting up dividers.

5 Ways to Boost Your Business with Holiday Décor

Holiday decorations can be a great marketing tool for any business. For brick-and-mortar stores, proper holiday décor sets a warm and inviting atmosphere which entices people to come in for a look, encourages shopping, and results in an enjoyable in-store experience for customers.

Here are 5 tips to help you prepare your own holiday decorations and boost your potential sales.

  1. Stick to the Theme

Avoid the impulse of simply putting up a hodgepodge of decorations. You want to choose a central theme and stick to it so your holiday decorations look professional. 

A classic example would be a White Christmas theme: you could include snowflake décor, maybe some frosting on the windows, and perhaps a marquee light snowman that you can turn on at night for visibility. For a Santa and elves theme, you could include colorful gift boxes and some marquee light candy canes in the decorations.

 

  1. Decorate Outdoors

A holiday is the perfect reason to place holiday decorations that attract the potential customer’s attention outside your place of business. For outdoor decoration, it’s best to go big and flashy. For example, you can place a tall nutcracker figure near the entrance, or hang a custom waving Santa marquee light sign next to your usual business signage.

 

  1. Create a Fun Window Display

It’s no secret that the holiday season results in increased foot traffic. Take advantage of that by setting up a unique scene you can display in your window. It’s even better if you can incorporate your products in the scene, but you can also go with a totally holiday themed display. Remember that you want people who stop to look at your window display to actually come into your store, so make sure to provide an incentive for them to come in.

 

  1. Find Creative Uses for the Decorations

Your decorations can also be used as displays that customers can interact with. For example, you can use a Christmas tree as a display to hold small merchandise or coupons. A snowman or a Santa figure could hold a board where customers can post their holiday greetings.

 

  1. Save it for Next Year

When planning your decorations for this year’s holidays, keep in mind that they need to come down afterwards, so you’ll want mostly durable ornaments and décor that you can use for next year. Make sure to store the decorations in good quality containers so you don’t have to start over when the next holiday comes around.
