Outdoor Summer Signage

Outdoor Summer Signage Checklist


Summer is synonymous with the outdoors. When temperatures start to rise, people are lured outside to enjoy the sunshine and seasonal produce at farmers’ markets, the atmosphere of local sporting events and the long awaited line-up of artists on the summer music festival circuit. If you’re a retailer or stallholder preparing to take advantage of the warmer weather, take a look at this custom outdoor signagechecklist for summer promotions:

Event Tent


Event Tents

While summer conjures up images of blue skies and green grass, all that can quickly turn into heavy rain and mud puddles. It’s best to prepare for the worst when it comes to outdoor trading, with weather-resistant 500 Denier Polyester canopy event tents. Sizes vary from the standard 10’ x 10’ steel coated event tents through to the larger 10’ x 20’ deluxe event tents, offering a floor to valance head clearance of 69″ up to 81″. Even if the weather holds, event tents provide relief and protection from a full day standing around in hot summer sun.

Feather FlagsFeather Flags

Once you’re safe from the elements, it’s time to think about how your business is going to stand out from the crowd. Feather flags are one of the most cost effective methods for delivering a business message and drawing in passing foot traffic. Banners come with a custom carry bag, pole set, material sleeve and a choice of either a cross base stand or ground stake. The Shark Fin Banner is a popular outdoor signage solution designed to handle the elements, with the ability to rotate in the wind and ensure your business message can be seen from all directions. This versatile custom signage solution comes in three heights (9′, 12.5’ & 15.5′) and optional advertising banner flags are easily interchangeable for re-using the banner stand at a different event.

Custom Banners & Banner Frames

Banners are an inexpensive and mobile solution for when you need outdoor signage for your summer events, market stalls, trade shows and exhibitions.  3′ x 6′ Digital Banners are printed with UV inks and available in matte or gloss banner material. For a professional finish, add a 2.5″ silver or black frame, featuring hinged flip up rails for fast and easy graphic changes. If you’re concerned about the safety of your outdoor signage in a high traffic area, security screws are also available to tamper proof your outdoor banner signage.
