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.

For the 6th consecutive year, the AMI Event Team spent this past weekend in beautiful Falmouth, Massachusetts installing road race signage for 45th running of the New Balance Falmouth Road Race. Considered to be one of the premier non-marathon races in the country, the New Balance Falmouth Road Race requires a significant amount of event signage for a combination of operational, branding, and sponsorship purposes, while not overpowering the natural beauty of the race location.

How to Install a Dasher Board Graphic

Dasher board graphics, signage placed on the highly visible rink boards around the ice surface, are an essential piece of arena signage when it comes to both sponsorship and branding opportunities. Today, most dasher board graphics are digitally printed to an adhesive material that is then directly applied to the rink board. Installing an adhesive rink board graphic can seem daunting at first, but it doesn’t have to be.

Under Ice Logos are valuable pieces of real estate for any ice arena. Painted or placed underneath the ice, under ice logos provide a high visibility location for sponsor logos or team and arena branding. Under ice logos can either be painted into the ice using ice paint after outlining the logo with a paper stencil and chalk, or a digitally printed graphic on ice mesh or a specific type of cloth frozen underneath a layer of ice.
