6 Must-Have New Bern Outdoor Event Sign Ideas

As the cold New Bern winter months come to a close, countless outdoor events will start to spring up.

Farmer’s markets, fundraisers, and church events are just some of the many activities that will take place over the next few months. If you’re planning an outdoor event in New Bern, consider the multiple benefits and value that your organization and attendees will get from having proper event signage in place.  Read on to learn more about six great signage options for your upcoming New Bern outdoor event.

Benefits of Event Signage

Event signage is critical to ensuring the success of any outdoor event. There are a wide range of benefits event signage convey:
  • Attracting as many people as possible
  • Increasing your organization or brand awareness
  • Allowing your organization to promote sponsors in exchange for a fee
  • Help people find where they need to go
Without outdoor event signage, your event will quickly fall apart as people struggle to find the ticket booth or porta-potty restrooms. Below you’ll find six must-have outdoor event signage ideas.

Outdoor Banners

When it comes to successfully promoting an outdoor event, outdoor banners are the ideal choice. Due to their large size and relative affordability compared to more permanent signage options, outdoor banners offer a tremendous ROI. If you’re planning on holding your event in an area that’s prone to high winds, you can opt for a mesh banner that contains thousands of tiny holes that allow breezes to pass harmlessly through. You also have a wide range of mounting options at your disposal. Choose from cables, adhesive hangars, Velcro, and grommets to safely and securely mount your banner. After the event is over, simply wipe down the banner with a damp rag and store it for use at your next event.

Exterior Temporary Signage

Exterior temporary signage provides you with an affordable way of getting the signs you need without having to pay someone extra to install them. After your event is over, you can carefully take down the signage for later use at another date. Temporary signage is much more than a flimsy cardboard sign—thanks to the advanced printing techniques at AlphaGraphics of New Bern, we proudly offer the following materials:
  • Wood
  • Foam Core
  • Acrylic
  • Vinyl
  • Glass 
  • Aluminum
  • Coroplast
  • And much more

Flags and Stands

Flags and stands are a great way to catch the attention of motorists and people sitting in traffic. Even the slightest breezes will catch the flag and cause it to flutter, and they’re ideal for promoting an event while it’s underway. Choose from a wide variety of stands and outdoor flags:
  • Panel and pole signs
  • Façade flags
  • Flagpole banners
  • A-Frame banners
  • Outdoor flags and stands
To ensure maximum visibility, choose from a wide range of options, such as:
  • Dying and screen-printing
  • Fluorescent fabric
  • Highly customizable shapes and dimensions
  • Digital printing
  • Custom-appliqués
  • Light-reflecting fabric

Table Throws

Table throws are an essential part of any outdoor event. In addition to dressing up an ugly bare-bones table, they allow visitors to see what each table is about. For example, if you’re promoting a farmer’s market, consider requiring each booth to have a table throw that lets people know what they sell. Table throws are also ideal for events that are on a strict budget. They add a sense of professionalism and are relatively inexpensive. Best of all, once the event is done, simply wash the table throw, and you’ll be able to use it over and over again.

Sandwich Signs
