Sports activities — whether in school, over the summer or after work — challenge people of all ages to exceed their physical comfort zones and develop social skills that few other activities can inspire. Having an enthusiastic crowd rooting for them spurs teams to push their boundaries and finish triumphantly at the end of the day. Generating excitement for your team among the spectators can be as easy as displaying the team’s insignia wherever possible. Here are some ideas for graphics that any athletics team can use to boost support.
With large format printing, your team can rejuvenate an old gymnasium with images of the team mascot and name displayed on the walls. Rather than hire a muralist, large graphics can be printed and applied to the walls for an economical facelift in any playing arena. You can also adhere the team members’ names to bleacher risers and end covers for an all-around effect within the gym.
Stadium and Arena Graphics
Team graphics can grace walls, floors, doors, bleachers and walls advertising your team’s brand. Any place not already devoted to a graphic is an opportunity to exhibit yours.
In a similar manner, the athletic graphics can be spread across the floor, too. With smooth, non-slip materials, your team’s images will be the focus of all eyes as the players move across the floor or the gym mat. Additionally, should the team update its imagery, floor graphics can easily be removed and replaced.
Versatile vinyl decals stick to windows, walls and doors at eye level where the team and supporters can see them before they even set foot in the gymnasium, stadium or arena. Decals can also decorate vehicles and show the world which teams you play for or favor as a fan.
Graphic designs of your team mascot and logo applied to windows, large and small, advertise your teams with flare on any building or vehicle. With several substrates available, you can go large without blocking the view.
For away games or events taking place in public parks or athletic fields, banners offer terrific opportunities to identify your team and show off your team’s logo, keeping your supporters cheering. Easily rolled and stowed, banners travel anywhere your team goes.
Promotional Products for Fundraising
What team doesn’t need to raise funds for equipment, uniforms, trophies and travel? Setting up tables at each game with printed promotional items for sale can raise money every time. Almost anything you can think of can bear the logo of an athletic team:
- Sports Equipment (balls, racquets, gloves, nets, bats, shoes, etc.)
- Pens and pencils
- Playing Cards
- Automotive Items
- Golf Accessories
- Water Bottles
- USB Drives
- And a whole lot more
