AUGUST 12, 2021| SpeedPro of SF Peninsula

Good news; The end is in sight!  With social distancing rules becoming increasingly relaxed, it’s time for BBQs and special events! I don’t know about you, but we’re ready to take full advantage of the sunshine and summertime vibes! Maybe you want to celebrate saying goodbye to lockdowns and closures? A warm welcome to a new mask-less era.  Maybe your company is looking forward to a new product launch and you want to celebrate with your team? Whatever your reason, this summer is the season!

Because we’re all so excited to get summer rolling, we thought it would be helpful to put together a few tips for hosting a great (and safe!) summertime get-togethers. Call your friends, family, and coworkers, and let’s get this party started!

Custom Event Tents

Custom event tents are a great option for indoor and outdoor events alike! Imagine your favorite farmers market on an unseasonably hot, summer afternoon. Your kids are drenched in sweat and unable to find shade anywhere…. enter your new, branded event tent!


Our versatile, transportable event tents bring your brand to the forefront, providing a transportable structure that markets in an understated yet effective way. Our event tents aren’t just for show, they’re for “go”  —  designed to be fully functional and provide shelter or shade. Whether your event is indoors or outdoors — regardless of season — an event tent can provide helpful information to visitors and expand your brand awareness.

Custom Flags

Want to grab people’s attention and get them to give your business a second look? Put custom-printed flags in front of your property or at the entrance to your business. Marketing flags trigger passive attention. They are colorful and stand out, making people look at them even if they don’t intend to do so.


Along with capturing people’s involuntary attention, custom flags also solidify your brand’s identity in the minds of consumers. When you print messages or slogans on the flags, you share your company’s values and beliefs with passersby.

On a more practical level, marketing flags let you share useful information with consumers. You can set up a flag or two to announce a big sale or the new arrival of a coveted product. The flags you use can also provide customers with simple instructions, such as “Come On In” or “Check Out Our Specials.”

Businesses in a wide range of industries can take advantage of custom-printed, outdoor marketing flags.

Lively Environmental Graphics

Rather than a specific type of signage, environmental graphics are defined by their purpose. What differentiates environmental graphic design from other types of signage is that it aims to change the space in a fundamental way. Environmental graphics should transform an area to create a particular feeling, convey important information or alter the way people use the space. In many cases, these are adhesive graphics that can be applied to doors, windows, floors, walls or ceilings to enhance your environment.


The term “environmental graphics” is closely related to the term “supergraphics.” Supergraphics could be considered a type of environmental graphic. They’re characterized by their size and the fact that they change the feeling of a space. Supergraphics are typically large and take up a significant portion of a room or even a whole building, and they’re often eye-catching and may involve bright colors, bold shapes and meaningful text or imagery.
