‘Tis the Season for Outdoor Events

Summer is right around the corner – though it may not seem like it with the roller coaster of temperatures – and with it comes a variety of outdoor events.  From big, outdoor concerts or rallies to an outdoor festival or charity golf tournament, the signage you choose to promote your event could determine its level of success.

We are entering the season of charity events like 5K run/walks, golf tournaments and bike races.  Some organizations depend on these events to raise funds to further their mission.  The right signage contributes positively to the experience attendees have and can help solicit higher donations.

At Forerunner Signs & Graphics, we work with outdoor event planners and non-profits of all sizes to provide custom graphics for their outdoor events and fundraisers.  When developing signage for such events, it’s much more than just printing a logo on a banner.  It’s about delivering the message you want people to receive.  And doing it the right way.  Our professional team will work with you to conceptualize the message and look.  We then determine what signage best fits your event’s needs.  After that is determined, we get to designing and delivering your signs straight to you.

There are many options to choose from when planning the signage for your event.  At Forerunner, we provide durable and portable custom signage for outdoor events of all types and each of these events have their own specific needs.  Below are just a few of the many we can provide:

Special Event Banners - We offer digitally printed, custom banners, up to grand format sizes, that can be printed on many different durable, weather-resistant materials, including mesh and vinyl. We also have a full line of banner stands for display.

Special Event Floor Graphics – Stand out with graphics attendees can stand on.  We can design temporary custom floor graphic decals that are digitally printed and available with a non-skid, UL-approved over-laminate. Our floor decals are great for all outdoor events and can be applied to many surfaces.

Special Event Backdrops – Don’t forget the background.  A bare background is boring.  A backdrop can hide cords, boxes and other unsightly things from view.  But more important, backdrops allow more space to design an instantly recognizable, high-impact visual element.

Whether it’s an outdoor expo, your city’s downtown days, a charity run or some other special occasion, signs and banners are beneficial for two reasons:


  • Special event signs or corporate event signs promote the affair ahead of time and on the day of the event.
  • Special event directional signage, including event parking signs, help guide your visitors. Make it easy for them to find their way from the garage, street or within the event. Event wayfinding signs will lead attendees where you want them — directly to your registration table or main entranceway – and to being long-time supporters!
