Summer is here and outdoor events—like farmers markets, art fairs, music festivals and conventions—are back in full swing. Looking for ways to stand out at outdoor events? Our print products are here to ensure that you’re prepared for the influx of outdoor event marketing opportunities.

Outdoor events are fantastic ways to share your brand’s message as people take their time to peruse each event booth, and those who are interested in your brand will stick around for a while. That being said, outdoor events can be busy, overwhelming endeavors, making it important to cut through the noise to grab people’s attention. Fortunately, Firespring’s lineup of print products designed specifically for outdoor use can be your best ally.

1. Pop-up tents

Imagine your organization’s bold colors, logo, name and website towering above the crowd with a custom tent. This is a great way to draw attention with a clean custom design. Tents will also help protect your merchandise and other print materials, and even yourselves and the attendees, from rainy weather or the hot sun.

2. Flags and banners

The movement of a flag is a great way to draw attention. Then, create a quick impression of your organization with a banner that attendees will see once they arrive at your booth. Our flags and banners include your name and logo while keeping a simple, memorable design.

3. Fliers

You’ve drawn attention to your booth, now it’s time to tell people what your organization is all about. Consider an informative, beautifully designed flier that deepens your audience’s understanding of your work and gives them a takeaway to visit your store or website. This creates a lasting reminder of your organization after they leave your booth. We’ll work with you to include key details about your products and services without overloading them with information.

4. Business cards

Business cards are essential to anyone looking to grow their business or organization. If the people who stop by your booth leave with nothing else, they should have your card. Leave them on display so any passerby can pick up your info. Our print team can ensure your business card matches the other products (tent, banners, fliers, etc.) so you have a cohesive and professional look.

5. Water bottles

A high-quality, reusable water bottle quenches thirst and advertises your organization long after the event concludes. People love water bottles and are likely to use them regularly, turning them into walking billboards. You’ll win brownie points with the summer crowd if you have a water dispenser to fill up their new bottles.

6. Useful promo items

People LOVE free stuff, especially if they can use it right away. Practical promo items, such as sunscreen, lip balm, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, cooling towels and more, are great for summer events. These items with your branding on them will strengthen attendees’ connections to your organization.

7. Fun promo items

Lean into the summertime fun with custom promo items people will use for the rest of the season: frisbees, beach balls, rally towels, etc. These collectibles will attract people to your tent and will serve as a reminder of your organization every time they use your item at the beach or barbecue.
