Whether you’re planning an indoor or outdoor wedding, decorating with a wedding banner and signs is the perfect way to be creative, have fun, and stress less about your wedding décor. If you’ve been using Pinterest to help plan your wedding, you’ve likely seen photos of a bride and groom holding Thank You signs for their custom thank you card. Images of flower girls and ring bearers carrying signs that read “Here comes your girl” are just as popular. These are only two examples in which a wedding banner and sign can be both useful and fun.guests-under-the-wedding-banner

The great thing about using a custom banner or sign at your wedding is that it is 100% exactly what you wanted. Rather than picking from a list of what is already available, you can choose your own logo, text, images, size, colors, etc. For those of us who are indecisive at best, narrowing down options may take a while. Once you decide which design/color combination you like best, you’ll be happier with your new decorations than you could have imagined.

Recently, a co-worker’s son got married and chose to use both banners and signs to decorate his rehearsal dinner, which took place on a beach. Banners that read “Anna and Eric’s Beach Party” were customized with colorful fish and hearts, as a surprise to the couple. Guests were not only able to easily find the beach party, but they had a blast taking candid pictures underneath the banner.

Wedding banners and signs aren’t solely decorations. They’re a prop for wedding guests to have fun with as well. If you’re planning on setting up a photo booth at your wedding, one of the latest wedding planner trends, both banners and signs make for great photo backdrops and props. On top of everything else, … Continue reading

Tips on How to Raise Money at Your Next Fundraiser

Whether you’re raising money for your company or a charity, a unique and interesting fundraiser is a successful fundraiser. Captivating slogans and logos, designs that draw people in and make them curious about your company or mission – all of these lead to raising money for your cause. The big question is how to come up with the right ones and what to display them on.

When starting to plan your fundraiser, consider your clientele. What is the age group that you are marketing to? Gender? Social class? All of these and more play into your final decision of how to run your fundraiser. Once you’ve recognized who your clientele is, you can begin to plan how you will raise money.

Bake sales and car washes are sure to draw people in, but they may not apply to your company. The best way to get the word out about your company and cause is to be creative. Your mission statement doesn’t need to be right on your company sticker or t-shirt. Instead, use an interesting logo or design to engage your clientele and make them want to know more. Think of your fundraiser as providing them with information and goods that they will want, rather than just raising money for your cause. With this mindset, you will be more in tune to what will grab your clientele’s interest and generate money for your fundraiser.

Just as your design and logo will help draw people to your fundraiser, so will the items that you advertise on and sell. A custom banner is perfect to help get the word out about when your fundraiser will take place and what it’s cause is. The products you use will depend on your targeted clientele. Teens and young adults will enjoy fun stickers, while adults … Continue reading
