Anyone who has planned an event will know what a huge task it is. There are numerous things to organise and an impending deadline. And something which should be at the top of your list is event signage. Having good signage will help to bring an event together, engage and inform guests. We’ve put together this blog to make your event planning a little easier and to help you create event signage that sets you apart from the rest.
Getting create will help to make your event memorable and build a great atmosphere.

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.
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.
