Take full advantage of your space

If you have lots of space, why not create something impressive? Say it loud and clear with oversized text. This can be great for event or brand names and are popular as a backdrop for large festivals. Of course, small spaces can we great too, you just need to know how to work with what you’ve got!



Keep signage consistent throughout your event. From toilet signs to stage banners and welcome signs, creating a consistent look will bring the theme or look of your event together.

Maximise brand interaction

Signage can even be used to engage event visitors. Media walls and corflute signs are a great way to get people interacting with a brand, stopping to take photographs and talking about the event in general.



It seems simple, but you should also consider factors that might affect the visibility of your signage. This can include position and distance. If the signage is at a greater distance text should be larger, so it can still be easily read. Eye-level might seem like the obvious choice, however, if there are large crowds then signage should be elevated to ensure it can be seen.
