9 Printed Materials to Consider for Your Next Outdoor Event

In the realm of outdoor events, the right deployment of printed materials is a key factor in creating a helpful experience and engaging atmosphere. Soar Valley Press specializes in providing bespoke print solutions that not only enhance the visual appeal of an event but also serve as pivotal tools for brand engagement and customer interaction.

Gazebos, for instance, are not merely functional shelters; they are prime real estate for brand exposure. A well-designed, custom-printed gazebo becomes the focal point of your presence, inviting attendees to engage with your brand in a space that is both visually striking and inviting. Inside, you can add additional branding elements that not only attract attendees, but also encourages them to spend more time exploring and connecting with you and your products. When used strategically, Gazebos can also help you maximize visibility and foot traffic, ensuring that your brand stands out and leaves a lasting impression on all who visit.


Flags offer an elegant solution for capturing attention and guiding attendees through the event. The visual impact of fluttering flags creates an atmosphere of excitement and energy, enhancing the overall event experience, and their movement and height provide a dynamic element that can be seen from afar, ensuring your message is conveyed even in a bustling outdoor setting. By incorporating custom-printed flags you ensure that your brand stands out prominently, capturing the interest and attention of everyone present, highlighting your brand from afar.


Eyeletted banners are the workhorses of event branding—resilient, adaptable, and impactful. They provide a canvas for your message, ensuring it is delivered clearly and effectively throughout the venue, whilst enhancing the visual cohesion of an event and reinforcing your brand identity in the minds of attendees. They are a cost effective way to advertise an event beforehand with several banners at different locations. Their sturdy construction means they can withstand various weather conditions, whilst offering versatile placement options to suit any event layout. The utility of these banners extends beyond a single event; their durability allows for repeated use, ensuring a cost-effective and sustainable print investment.


A-Frames can be placed at strategic points to direct attendees to key locations or advertise special offers. They’re sturdy, easily noticeable and can be updated quickly by swapping out the printed material, enabling you to adjust to changing event dynamics without hassle. Their double-sided design ensures visibility from multiple directions, maximizing their impact in busy environments and contributing to a smooth and engaging attendee experience. They are also durable and can withstand outdoor conditions, ensuring that your signage remains intact and legible throughout the event, making them a cost-effective option for recurring events.


PVC Mesh Banners are another valuable addition. These banners are perfect for outdoor events with adverse weather conditions where durability and longevity are crucial, as their mesh fabric is designed to reduce wind resistance. They offer excellent visibility, maintaining their vibrant colours and clear graphics even when exposed to harsh elements, ensuring that your message remains prominent and professional throughout the event. PVC Mesh Banners are also lightweight and easy to transport allowing for quick setup and takedown, and can be adapted to different installation requirements seamlessly. They are perfect to use with crowd control barriers.


Perforated Tickets and Vouchers are practical print items for events that require ticketing or special offers. They not only serve a functional purpose but can also be customized with your branding, turning every ticket or voucher into a mini advertisement for your business and reinforcing brand recognition among event participants. They also serve as tangible reminders of your brand long after the event has ended. Attendees may keep them as souvenirs or share them with friends and family, extending the reach of your brand beyond the event itself whilst driving brand visibility and engagement.


Waterproof Posters are perfect for outdoor settings where weather can be unpredictable. Printed on strong, flexible materials, they ensure that your message stays pristine in the run up to an event, rain or shine. These durable posters can be displayed on multiple areas, including walls, fences, or free-standing boards, and are designed to withstand the elements without fading or deteriorating in quality. The use of strong, flexible materials enhances the longevity of these posters, allowing them to be a sustainable marketing choice as they can be reused for future events or repurposed for indoor displays. 


Printed Wristbands are useful for managing and enhancing the guest experience at outdoor events. Beyond their practical use as entry verification, these small but mighty accessories offer a valuable marketing opportunity. They can be customized with a company’s logo, event branding, or sponsor messages, turning each attendee into a walking billboard for your brand, making it an indispensable tool for event organizers. For many attendees, wristbands also become keepsakes that evoke memories of the event long after it’s over, creating a lasting connection between the attendee and the brand.


Lastly, Stickers can be a fun and interactive way to engage with attendees, offering a multitude of versatile uses that extend beyond mere decoration. They can be used to brand products, decorate spaces, or given away as keepsakes, providing you with a cost-effective and impactful means of extending your brand's reach. Stickers are a subtle yet effective method of increasing brand visibility and can be customized in various shapes and sizes to suit your needs and align seamlessly with your brand identity and marketing objectives to foster memorable interactions with your audience.


The success of an event hinges on the meticulous orchestration of these print elements as the benefits of them make a real difference for attendees. Directional signage and informational displays crafted with clarity and brand consistency ensure a seamless and enjoyable event experience. Branded merchandise, such as apparel and accessories, extend the engagement beyond the event. The strategic placement of sponsor logos on printed materials can open avenues for additional revenue, enhancing the event’s financial viability. Together, these elements contribute to a cohesive and immersive brand experience, fostering a professional image that instills confidence and loyalty among attendees. 


Branding is the cornerstone of any marketing endeavour, and outdoor events have a unique way to bring your brand to life. Through consistent and compelling print materials, a narrative unfolds that differentiates the event, fosters customer loyalty, and can drive business growth. The tangible nature of print creates a memorable interaction that can translate into increased brand recall and, ultimately, sales and the return on investment from high-quality print materials is evidenced by their longevity and versatility.
