After over a year of cancelled events we are slowly returning to business as usual. This is an exciting time for many businesses who have had their tradeshows, conferences, barbeques and other events postponed due to the pandemic. Declining case counts and rising vaccination rates in BC gives us an optimistic look on the rest of the summer and into the fall months. Here at Surrey Digital Printing we have seen an uptick in event printing and have put together a list of the most trending items for your summer restart plan.
Business cards – Most of us still use business cards daily. They are often overlooked and left to the last minute before that big meeting or event. So why do we still need them in this post pandemic digital age? Simply because they are clear, concise, and tangible (you can touch, feel, and read them in your hands). In the B2B world it is still good etiquette to have some stashed away in your pocket. Need some in a hurry? We offer next day service on our standard business cards. Ordering online? Click here.
Outdoor Tents – With restrictions slowly lifting in BC over the summer, businesses are expecting to resume business as usual. We have already seen an increase in events being planned for the summer and fall months with many bringing their events outdoors to comply with sizing restrictions. With recent heat warnings, a custom printed tent is a good way to keep you shaded while increasing brand awareness. We offer a variety of size and accessory options to accompany you at your next event. Ask us for a template or download it from our website here.
Table Throws – Trade shows have officially resumed after being on hiatus for the past year and a half! Showcase your brand and grab prospective customers attention by adding a custom printed tablecloth to your booth. Table throws are ideal for dressing tables at tradeshows, conferences, product launches, reception areas, outdoor and indoor events, showrooms, and more. They can complement a larger exhibition display or be used on their own. We offer a range of sizes and fits for all types of table displays. Download a template here.
Flags – Increase your visibility! Custom printed flagsoffer the visibility you need to attract customers to your business no matter the location. Also known as promotional flags, they are easily portable and can be used for promoting a business’s grand opening, a new product or service, special event, or as directional signage. A flag can go hand in hand with your outdoor tent or stand alone with many different base options. Click here to choose your style!
A Frame Signs – Alert passersby of new and exciting promotions, business hours or any other special announcements with an A-Frame (also known as Sandwich Board) sign. Largely due to the pandemic, businesses have been using A-Frames to communicate special instructions to their customers like the most up to date restrictions, line markers and daily specials. These can be parked on a sidewalk out-front and easily moved. Inserts can also be easily updated and reprinted on an economical material such as coroplast. Choose your size to get started!
Rack Cards – Now that you have the base for a successful event let’s talk marketing collateral. You will need something to hand out to prospective customers that summarizes what you do and what your company is all about. Adding some simple rack cards to the marketing mix is a great option. Often smaller in size than a brochure but heavier in weight, rack cards are quite versatile and great for outdoor events. Need help with your design? Ask us for a quote from our graphics department.
Banners – Banner marketing is one of the most popular forms of display advertising and any business whose target audience spends a lot of time outside should consider adding outdoor advertising to their strategy. Check out some of our sizes and materials here.
Event Signs – Event signage is a broad term that can include anything from lawn signs, hanging signs, cutouts, media backdrops or roll up banners. Often temporary, event signage can be printed on economical materials that will last the length of your event. Not sure what you require for your event? We have a wide range of materials for both outdoor and indoor events, ask us which is right for your event.
