Advantages of Temporary Event Signs

Temporary signs hold a distinct advantage over permanent ones in that they’re easy to transport, set up, and offer a great ROI.

With traditional signage, you’ll need to hammer nails, drill holes, or find an expensive way of holding the sign up. Once the event is over, you’re left with unsightly nail holes or other small damage. With a temporary sign, you don't have this issue. The beauty of temporary signs is their simplicity. They tend to cost much less than a traditional sign and can be quickly set up and taken down in a matter of minutes. Best of all, if they’re stored properly, they will last for years to come. We’re going to look at some temporary sign options that you should consider for your next event. They’ll save you time, money, and hassle so you can focus on making sure the event goes off without a hitch.

Coroplast Signs

Coroplast is made out of plastic that’s been molded to mimic a standard piece of cardboard. Due to the nature of their construction, they’re sturdy and can easily be used outside due to their weather-proof nature. They’re non-toxic, waterproof, and can be used almost anywhere. They make for great directional signage, especially for events held on grassy or dirt areas. They can even be used for indoor point of purchase displays in such areas as concession stands. They come in a wide variety of bright colors, including translucent, which will give off a nice glow when backlit.

Event PosterEvent Posters

Event posters offer an economical way of promoting your event. They’re easy to install, easy to take down and can be mounted in many different ways. They can even be printed on high-quality paper which will enable them to be taken down and kept as souvenirs or mementos of the event. If you’re not good at design, you can always have a professional designer create the perfect poster.

Exterior Temporary Signs

If you need something slightly more durable than a paper poster, look no further than a temporary exterior sign. They’re made to withstand both the elements and the crowds. They can be used over and over again and only require a quick wipe down with a wet rag to clean them. The various mounting options for temporary signs will enable you to install and take them down without any damage or marring to the area where they were hung.

Vinyl Signs & Graphics

A vinyl sign can help attract attention from far and wide. Choose from a wide variety of colors and designs. Installation is a cinch, and the temporary adhesive will enable it to be taken down without damaging the surrounding environment. Vinyl letters and signs can be attached to windows, walls, floors, or almost any surface you can think of. They cost a fraction of traditional signage and can last for a very long time. If you already have an A-frame sign, you can have new vinyl lettering printed up and re-use the A-frame sign over and over again.

Window Clings

Window clings offer value and can be printed in a wide variety of colorful graphics and text. They can be installed and repositioned over and over again. Thanks to large format printing, you can have almost any size window cling printed up that you can dream of. They’re a cost-effective way of advertising a sale or other event and will last for a very long time. You can put a cling on the windows of your store, vehicles, or even the convention center where the event is being held at.
