Event Signage 101: How to succeed at your next big event!

Planning your next big event and not sure where to start? Signage can play a huge role in the look and feel of your environment, and can also serve the function of letting people know what’s happening and where they should be! It can be overwhelming to think of all the different components that will help your event come together – evaluating the event space is always a great place to start. Is it indoor? Outdoor? What surfaces do you have to work with?

Here are some of the products we think are sure to make your event a success:

Banners and Signs

Banners and signs are a no-brainer when it comes to building an event space. They’re an eye-catching way to advertise, and can also help to fill empty areas to make the space feel complete. These come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and materials to suit your needs, whether your event is taking place inside or outside.


Whether you’re at a trade show, require a background for media photos at a red carpet event, or you’re planning a fun photo booth for attendees, backdrops are an awesome solution. You’re not limited to the standard logo step-and-repeat either – we can create something completely custom with everything from fabric to handmade paper flowers.

Wayfinding Signage

Wayfinding” signage refers to all the visual cues that help people navigate and find their way around your event. This could include signs that identify where you are, how to get to other areas of the event and more. Wayfinding plays an important part in the efficiency and flow of the traffic through your event, so spend some time planning out this step, especially for larger event venues.

Window, Wall & Floor Decals

Windows, walls and floors provide valuable advertising space and are a great way to display branding or custom graphics for your event. Vinyl decals are available with removable adhesive (perfect for shorter term events), as well as more permanent, durable options for longer-term applications.
