An event is successful when you get every detail right, including the graphics you choose and how you display them. From welcome banners to step-and-repeat banners, here are five ways to use vinyl banners for events.
Make a Big First Impression
You want your event to get noticed, and banners help you do just that. It’s not for nothing they’ve been around for centuries!
Museums understood this simple but effective idea a long time ago. That’s why every big exhibition is advertised with banners so impactful that people can’t help but stop and take notice.
Now thanks to digital large format printing you can achieve the same effect for your event. A large vinyl banner draped across the building where your event takes place generates buzz, creates a sense of excitement, and boosts attendance.
As a side note, remember that your banners must be visually appealing but also easy to read. To ensure that people are able to read your banners, keep a simple rule in mind. Every inch of letter height provides 10 feet of readability. So, for example, if your banner is 20 feet from your audience, the letters you use must be at least two inches tall.
Great: you are getting people through the door. Now what?
Now is time to shine with an impressive welcome banner that makes attendees feel appreciated and communicates the spirit of your event.
A company with in-depth printing expertise like CR&A Custom can create welcome banners in almost any shape and size imaginable, making it easy for you to surprise your audience with customized designs.
Whether you need to convey a friendly atmosphere for a special sale or a focused, professional look for a convention, a welcome banner is an excellent way to get your event off to a great start from a visual standpoint.
Use Large Vinyl Banners to Direct Traffic
Large vinyl banners appended from the ceiling or other fixed structures are an original way to help attendees navigate your event.
Combining banners and signs ensures that everyone can find their way around easily, making for a more fulfilling attendee experience.
Some of the areas that can be made easier to locate using banners include:
- Concession stands
You can also use vinyl banners to direct people to areas where special appearances or flash sales within your event will take place.
In general, banners are a great way to direct traffic and draw attention to any feature of your event, including venue information such as aisle numbers, or hall names.
Light Up the Stage With a Spectacular Vinyl Banner
If your event has a stage, there are several reasons why you should consider placing one or more banners there.
For example, a stage can be a dull place when empty. Digitally printed vinyl banners add a touch of visual excitement. This helps create the impression that there is always something happening (or about to happen) at your event.
On the other hand, wherever there’s a stage, all eyes tend to turn almost automatically to it. This makes any stage prime real estate for advertising. So, for example, if your event has sponsors, you can include their logo on your stage banner to ensure that their brand gets maximum exposure.
Glam Up Your Event With Step and Repeat Banners
Step and repeat banners are self-standing banners designed to serve as a backdrop for photos.
These banners are called “step and repeat” because they usually feature one or more logos repeated all over the surface of the banner. Just like stage banners, stage-and-repeats are an excellent place to display the logo of your event and those of your sponsors.
Since step and repeat banners are a common sight at galas or black-tie events, they create an atmosphere of glamour that makes attendees feel like movie stars. Plus, this is a subtle way to encourage people to take selfies, which helps your event get more traction on social media.
