Farewell to the 2017 Baseball Season

Fall has officially arrived, and with that has come the end of the Minor League Baseball season. Chris and Ed really enjoyed their time in beautiful Greenville, South Carolina for the annual Minor League Baseball Promotional Seminar. It is always a pleasure to get to see our baseball friends at the end of every season after working closely with them to get their stadium and facility signage ready for first pitch, along with various signage needs throughout the season. We also enjoy getting to hear about all of the successful seasons and promotions.

Use Custom Signage to Increase Social Media Engagement

Started as a way for people to connect with one another, social media has grown from its initial purpose to a platform for businesses and organizations to promote themselves and connect with their desired fan base. Social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are now powerful tools that can be used to broadcast a message, educate followers, and entice them to buy a particular product or service or participate in an event. Promotional signage is a great way to help facilitate social media campaigns and online engagement for in-person participants at special or regular events.

Product Highlight: Building Banners

Often overlooked as something commonplace and ordinary, the sides of buildings are actually a launching point for a powerful and versatile branding and marketing tool. Building banners, large banners attached to the outside walls of a building, are multipurpose as they can be used to showcase upcoming events, sponsors, or general branding, while also covering the blank and boring building walls or areas that may be undergoing construction or renovation.

Design Essentials: Designing an Ice Resurfacer Wrap

Ice resurfacers, machines that are used to clean and smooth the surface of an ice sheet, are an integral part of the game of hockey. With prime visibility to the fans pre-game and during intermissions, it should also be an integral part of your sponsorship inventory.
