Using Signage for Outdoor Spring and Summer Functions
Once the weather breaks and spring finally arrives, individuals who have been cooped up all winter eagerly look forward to spending time outside; happily attending numerous professional and personal events held outdoors. From those of us yearning to cheer on our favorite baseball team with a hotdog in hand to others looking to feed their love of culture and the arts with summer concerts and craft fairs, outdoor functions are abundant and varied. Marketing for these special outdoor functions can seem daunting with the added stress of using printed signage in conditions like wind, rain and harsh sunlight. Let’s review most everyone’s three favorite things about the warmer weather—arts and entertainment, sporting events and food—and how you can incorporate custom printed outdoor banner stands, flags and free-standing displays to advertise, as well as celebrate, the season’s events!
Outdoor theater productions in the summer let you enjoy the drama of Shakespeare’s Hamlet in the calming atmosphere of a park! Create impressive scenery with a printed backdrop or display sturdy enough for outdoor use. Full-color vinyl banners are affordable ways to add a theater background to your play or musical. The resilient vinyl material is usually weatherproof and printed with waterproof solvent inks which will not run or fade. Fabric banners are also ideal because wind can move through the material to decrease wind resistance and therefore mitigate the distraction of a wildly blowing banner while your performance is going on. The enjoyment of arts in the Great Outdoors can also lead you in another direction—craft fairs! Show off your handmade jewelry or sculptures with a custom printed table throw or event tent to shelter your showcase area.
Warm weather enables you to stop slaving over that stovetop and get out and grill! For professional BBQ companies, spring and summer are among the busiest months with a barrage of weddings, corporate picnics and family reunions. Durable and eye-catching outdoor banner stands are necessary to get the word out about your catering company. A-Frame poster stands are convenient sidewalk signs with two custom printed banners to place next to your food truck or special event area. Broadcast today’s specials on an easy-to-see sidewalk sign. Grab attention with a tall teardrop or feather banner with your company’s logo and name to let people know where that delicious aroma is coming from! For summer festivals and fairs, regular concession stands can also benefit from cost-effective vinyl banners or custom printed flags to draw a hungry audience to your mobile restaurant!
Fans of fair-weather sports like baseball, tennis and beach volleyball unite! Whether you are playing, or just rooting for the home team, sports banners are essential for showing your team pride! Purchase a sports flag or vinyl banner emblazoned with your team’s logo to display at the game or even on the front of your home! From professional athletics to the Little Leagues, an outdoor banner display like a feather or swooper flag can easily show your support! Purchase a portable canopy to keep your baseball team cool and sheltered during a taxing tournament or double-header series. Hand-held banners are also popular among sports fanatics and offer a great way to quickly and easily display your enthusiasm for your favorite team while watching the game in the bleachers.
To enjoy and broadcast all the great outdoor events that spring and summer have to offer, durable and eye-catching outdoor signage is a must! Whether you are winding down at a ballet in the park, attending a tempting rib cook-off or reliving your childhood with a trip to your local baseball diamond, Post-Up Stand’s wide range of weatherproof outdoor flags, banners and poster stands can help make that special function even more memorable!
