Minnesota State fair Signs

It's that time of year again - the great Minnesota get together!
Here we are hanging a few signs at the WCCO Radio State Fair booth. Over the years our installers have hung everything from 40' roof top building signs to simple menu board lettering. Here we are hanging a schedule of events sign.
This particular sign is made from a semi-rigid plastic that hold up extremely well for exterior use and has a nice non-glare finish. This plastic also hangs flat and is extremely lightweight.
Notice the size of this's a biggie. A lot of booth owners opt for the printed banner option in this case. We are not 100% sure why this is but it most like has to do with their vendors limitations or a sales approach. Though banners are a great choice in a lot of large exterior situations, they are not always the best looking once installed. In this instance we took into consideration the installation surface before deciding on the best product for this use. Given the unevenness of the wood fence, and the close proximity to guests. This 4mm thick plastic was the best choice, and it came in under budget. Notice how flat it lays and how there is no pleating or sagging as often seen in poor banner installations.
