Trade Show Tool Kit

Going to a Trade Show? Be prepared to pack up, unpack, set up, take down, and pack up again. And, besides your trade show displays and company products for sale, don’t forget the other supplies you’ll need to have a successful trade show.

Here’s your handy-dandy Trade Show Toolkit Checklist:

  1. Packaging tape
  2. Shrink wrap
  3. Power strip and/or extension
  4. Small tools: allen wrench, phillips head screwdriver, flat head screwdriver
  5. Box cutter
  6. Hand steamer
  7. Vacuum or carpet sweeper
  8. Pens
  9. Highlighter
  10. Stapler
  11. Notepad
  12. Business cards
  13. Catalogs
  14. Fliers
  15. Brochures
  16. iPad
  17. Promotional giveaways
  18. Camera

Things to keep in mind:

  1. Know the Convention Expo Services.
  2. Check to see if your booth package comes with carpet, tables and chairs. If not, be sure to arrange to rent these items, if necessary. You can check with the Convention Expo Services first.
  3. When you check-in at the Convention Center, be prepared to give your company name and booth number. You might also be asked for your ID.
  4. After you check-in, it’s a good idea to go find your booth and check if your palette is there.
  5. Start setting up your booth as soon as possible to give you ample time to spare in case something goes wrong or to get prepared for show day.

Happy Holidays 2016!

Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas! Happy Chanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa!

As we take time to reflect and enjoy this holiday season, we fill our hearts with love and spread good cheer now and throughout the new year!

From our work family - all of us at San Diego Sign Company - to you, we wish you happy holidays and a happy new year!

New Popular Big Displays. Filling the 30 Foot Gap.

Sometimes you need a large display, but perhaps it’s not large enough to keep its portability, its easy setup and its light weight. You have to go custom. You don’t wanna go custom.

Fabric comes attached, (though we recommend you remove graphic for long-term storage), and stays put with Velcro. Convenient in travel mode, in setup mode, and in takedown-storage mode—fits into a small space!

Let’s take a closer look at some pictures and setup video below!

Here is the frame expanded completely. Very simple.

Back to School, Back to Basics

It’s that time of year already...back to school. And what does that mean? Busy, busy with extracurricular activities! Let’s see, we have school sports and after-school clubs. PTA fundraisers and Fall Festivals. School plays and school car washes. Football games and homecoming.

Sounds like signs for days, right? Well, since we’re back to school, let’s get back to basics. Promote with signs that don’t break the bank!

The good news is that all you need is a simple hem & grommet banner to promote your school event. It’s a sign that you can roll up and take to go, or leave up for a while.  What’s more is that graphics on this material are printed with UV cured inks, making long-lasting impressions and preventing color-fading from the strong sunlight.

So, get a custom banner (“sports banner”). Choose our textured outdoor material - 13oz Scrim Vinyl - that’s only $7/sqft.

Simply, select hem and grommet finishing if you plan to zip tie your banner onto a chain link fence. Other finishings w…
