Event Signs – Printed & Installed
Printed event signs and signage installation is a big part of the business we do here at Barneys. Event signs can come in many forms. Ranging from simple pull up banners and A-framed sandwich boards. What about vinyl banners, vinyl lettering and corflute signs? Right through to large format canvas signs. We also print decal signs for cars, buses, trams, trucks as well as signs for tram and bus stops.
Did you know that in the old days most companies would commission a sign writer? That said, as technology has improved there is so many more choices. It’s quite hard for marketing managers to keep up. We have detailed and up to date knowledge of the type of event signs that work best for any given installation. We also manage the best signage suppliers in Melbourne.
Recently we have achieved an incredible installation feat with Yarra Trams and the Australian Grand Prix. Yarra Trams required redirection event signs on over 50 tram stops to accommodate the Australia Grand Prix crowds from different locations from around Melbourne. This required coordinating and installing the multiple signs for the right stop within a couple of days before the Grand Prix. Then the event signs had to be taken down as soon as the Grand Prix was over.
To help with the coordination we created a website for internal use only that shows which sign went where on the tram stop but also the location via Google maps. This included images of the event signs and sign content that can now be used for years to come as a reference.
Often with print management you need to provide complementary services or provide a service that is not within the normal scope of print management. These extra services are opportunities to look after clients who need more than just signs printed. This case study was complex. It required a tight team in order to ensure that the event signs gave the correct instructions. Moreover, they had to be stored within easy access in order to be installed and taken down within in the tight parameters. This ensured there was no customer confusion.
“With a combination of great staff and technology the project was completed without a hitch.” explains Garry Barnett, Managing Director here at Barneys. “Yarra Trams are an important client and we often do installations that run through the night to meet their needs. At Barneys we have evolved into more than just print managers or signage suppliers. We are now problem solvers and solution providers. We understand you can’t rest on your laurels when technology is so accessible and the competition is high. I’m proud of the work we did in collaboration with the fantastic team at Yarra Trams and look forward to the same again next year.”
