EVENTS, CONFERENCES AND CONVENTIONS
Corporate, political and charity conferences, events and conventions provide opportunities for a wide variety of customised marketing collateral including posters, roll-up banners and corporate or promotional gifts.

FAIRS, FETES AND CEREMONIES
Fairs, fetes, ceremonies, festivals, historical re-enactments and carnivals all look for their own unique identity. From t-shirts to posters and banners, stickers and vehicle wraps, flags, promotional items and other signage, every event represents a genuine business opportunity.

HOLIDAYS AND LEISURE
Holiday resorts and leisure facilities all need to promote themselves in a crowded marketplace and this offers huge opportunities to a graphics producer. Just think of a few of the standard applications, such as promotional flags, door signs and in-room graphics, wayfinding signage and graphics on sports and leisure equipment, staff shirts, notice boards for events, picnic and camping areas, menus, floor and table graphics, health and safety signage – the list is truly endless.

CLUBS AND SOCIETIES
Corporate, political and charity conferences, events and conventions provide opportunities for a wide variety of customised marketing collateral including posters, roll-up banners and corporate or promotional gifts.

SPORTS CLUBS
From sports teams’ shirts and kits, to banners for the stadiums or arenas, wraps for vans, vinyl floor markings, sponsorship graphics and the prizes and plaques on offer for each tournament, this market presents significant potential to develop new profit opportunities.

FACTORIES AND INDUSTRIAL ENVIRONMENTS
Factories and industrial environments require wayfinding and health and safety signage for the display of key information. They also need graphics to be installed on walls, floors and panels to enhance the appearance of commercial areas and offices. Manufacturing businesses may need control panels, serial number labels or customised clothing.

SAILING CLUBS
From customised boat graphics and sails to club house graphics, posters, banners and berth markers. In addition, customised clothing for team members such as shirts, waterproofs or even hats. And, given the sheer number of initiatives and regattas sailing clubs regularly organise, you can add trophies and plaques to your potential portfolio of products.

ART AND PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITIONS
Art and photographic exhibitions often require an installation to house the objects, paintings or photographs being exhibited, as well as posters to advertise the exhibition itself. Plus a range of promotional items that complement the overall theme of the exhibition, such as hats, t-shirts and other accessories. Art and photographic exhibitions may also feature print copies of the original work signed by the artist, and these too can be produced on fine art paper or canvas.

MUSEUMS AND HISTORICAL ATTRACTIONS
Attractive and informative graphics play an essential part in how museums communicate and engage with their visitors and promote initiatives and events. Consider all of the various themes or temporary exhibitions and shows that need to be customised with signs, notices, posters, floor graphics, illustrative panels and so on. Even souvenirs for the gift shop may need to be printed and personalised to support specific events.

SHOPS
Shops need to constantly and consistently communicate with customers – whether that be to highlight new features, launch new products or run special promotions. Nearly all elements of a retail shop can be customised – from the exterior shop front and windows, to walls, floors, POS displays, pay stations, banners and staff uniforms.
