You already know The Humane Society of the United States for its commitment to stop animal cruelty. A hands-on organization, the Society’s partnership with local groups results in major advocacy events. The Society is involved in the struggle to shut down puppy mills, factory farming, and end captive hunts. When this organization needed event signage, representatives contacted the pros at Unlimited Signs, Designs & Graphics.
We created three identical face-in-the-hole posters for nonprofit events. They display a cartoon pig, with the face cut out, that shows a sign reading, “I love meatless Monday.” At the top of the poster, you see the name and logo for the The Humane Society. During an event, this poster is an ideal part of a photo booth setup and creates the opportunity for excellent press shots, too. The combination of the whimsical design, clear message and logo display works to raise awareness.
Thinking Through Your Next Event Setup
Non-profit groups rely on the fundraising efforts they encourage during special events. Whether these events are open house meet-and-greet occasions or take place in a rented venue, the need for the right signage component is clear. Our graphic artists routinely work with representatives of non-profits in search of new and exciting fundraising markers, including banners.
The type of poster selected by The Human Society has a three-fold advantage.
- Budget-friendly. Face-in-hole posters are easy on the budget. After we apply the laminate to the front, the material becomes more durable and can be re-used for years to come.
- Effective. Those visiting fundraisers and events sponsored by non-profits appreciate the opportunity to partner with the organizations. Taking a photo with a prop poster is, therefore, a fun part of the event that benefits a chosen cause.
- Memorable. Onlookers and those seeing photos in the news are sure to remember the message of the event as well as the logo of the group sponsoring it. As a result, these products work well for all types of organizations.
Combining Signage Components
Face-in-the-hole posters are one example of effective signs that could enhance your next event. Other products also work well in that setting. Use a large photo backdrop with repeat wallpaper to identify the corporate sponsors that support your non-profit. Include their logos and company colors to enhance name recognition. Allowing press photos against this backdrop is an excellent method for nudging other companies to follow suit.
Banners create directional signage that brings in visitors. Displayed on the outside, they also allow for the creation of name recognition. Passersby, who have never heard of your organization, may use the occasion to find out more about your group. Doing so opens the door for new volunteers and donors. Complementing the look of the various signage components is as easy as ensuring a proper name and logo placement on each one.
