Here at Mesh Direct, we regularly supply some of the country’s biggest festivals and events with temporary event fence signage. These organisations use a range of our products, from premium banner mesh and shade cloth, to corflute and wind mesh. Numerous festivals and events know the value of utilising our temporary event signage, do you?

Read on for all the reasons you need temporary event signage for your next festival or event…

1. Brand recognition

One of the main benefits for using temporary event fence signage is covering it with your artwork, branding, logo and event details to create a sense of brand recognition.

You want people to be able to instantly recognise your colours, your logo or your event branding as soon as they see the temporary fencing. It makes your event look established and professional, as well as makes great backdrops in photos and social media posts from your guests.

This helps you create a universal look across your entire event site, giving your brand credibility.

2. Easy to install & reusable

Another great benefit of using our temporary event fence signage is that it’s easy to install. Made with metal eyelets and cable ties, just about anyone can install our banner mesh. You can check out our installation advice here to see for yourself.

Our banner mesh and temporary event fence signage is also reusable. It’s created with durable substrates and materials, ensuring that our clients can use it time and time again. This makes it particularly great for seasonal events, it can be installed, used throughout the event and then taken down and stored for the next event. It’s easily transported as well, also making it ideal for events that tour various locations.

3. Cover unsightly temporary fencing

Anyone who’s dealt with temporary fencing before knows how ugly it is. Metal poles and chain link fences don’t exactly scream ‘exciting event here’.

Yet another benefit of banner mesh is its ability to cover up unsightly temporary fencing with epic branding, colours and artwork. It has the dual advantage of showcasing your business or event, as well as creating a more visually appealing aesthetic in general.

Event Signage And Effective Low Budget Advertising Guide

April 10, 2017 / in Blog / by Helen Scheuerer / No Comments

There are dozens of factors to consider when it comes to event management and success. However, event signage and effective low budget advertising are usually at the top of that list. Planners want to know the best ways promote their event, and create a unique, branded experience.

One way of creating a uniform branded aesthetic across the scope of your whole event is to use event signage. This is also an incredibly effective form of low budget advertising.

Event signage

Here at Mesh Direct, we’re experts in large scale printing and have many years experience in event signage. We’ve created event signage for numerous festivals, lifestyle events and promotional programs, including Vivid Sydney, Electric Gardens festival, Stereosonic, Winter Festival and more.

When it comes to creating effective signage for your event, and achieving that all-important uniform aesthetic on a low budget, there are a range of options.

Check out the types of banner mesh and event signage below, and determine which is right for you and your event.

Shade cloth/scrim

Shade cloth is a budget-friendly option for many, and is a fantastic solution for festival organisers in particular. It’s usually used on barrier fencing, particularly on long runs where a high print resolution isn’t always necessary. Scrim is a good starting point or entry level branded fencing.

It’s sold in rolls of 50 metres, and can be reused again and again, making it perfect for regular events.

Premium banner mesh

Premium banner mesh is a great solution for things like sporting events or music festivals. Our perforated material provides impressive visual impact and high resolution print quality. This design also allows for wind to pass through without interfering with the fence or structure itself.

While a little more expensive than shade cloth, premium banner mesh does have a superior print quality, which is ideal for displaying the artwork and branding of your event.

This printed shade mesh is perfect for covering up unsightly fencing with your branding and advertising your event.

Particularly if you need to set up the structure and scaffolding of your event in advance, wrapping your temporary fencing with branded mesh can prove to be very effective low budget advertising.

Vinyl hoarding

Vinyl hoarding is another fantastic option for your event signage and low budget advertising. Vinyl hoarding provides the highest possible print quality where wind flow isn’t a crucial factor. You’ll likely find vinyl hoarding outside of buildings and shopping centres where it easily grabs the attention of passersby.

It’s also often used at music festivals and large scale events where timber barrier fencing has been installed.

Another common use for vinyl hoarding is for smaller banners where there is a greater need for durability and high visibility.

Corflute Signage

The final option for event signage and low budget advertising it corflute signage. This is lightweight and versatile, and is ideal for events and festivals due to its low price. It’s most common use is for directional signs, menus, and safety signs.

Banners and signs combination

Of course, for most events, you’ll need a combination of the above signage types. This is definitely recommended for achieving that uniform look across your festival or celebration.

For the most effective low budget advertising, using a combination of event signage is the best solution.

Crowd Control Barriers for Events by Mesh Direct

Filling the Advertising Void: Crowd Control Barrier Covers, Signs and Banners for Events

July 30, 2016 / in Blog / by Mesh Direct / No Comments

In this stone age, public events are constantly running throughout the calendar year and draw the masses to small areas on numerous occasions. Due to this, event organisation is largely based upon crowd control and if not attended to correctly, it may lead to chaos that could easily lead to injuries or death. Therefore, it is imperative that an event has effective crowd control methods, it allows the crowd to easily access the event but also ensures the safety of participants whilst attending the event. This is where crowd control barriers come into play.

Unlimited Marketing Opportunities

Crowd control barrier banners or sleeves are perfect for any event, festivals, concerts, sporting events, film premieres, marathon or a product launch. With large amounts of fencing and protective guards to control the flow of people needed, this allows for kilometres of advertising space. This is a perfect opportunity for event organisers to maximise promotion of their event or products. Crowd control signs and banners can fit snug onto your barriers and can be applied to one or both sides which is not only for a great promotional opportunity but also makes all that empty metal fencing look aesthetically pleasing.

Unreal Practicality
Crowd Control barriers with the use of signs and banners can incorporate your business logo, colour schemes and fonts. It normally comes in two forms

1. Single Sided with polyester mesh
2. Double Sided sleeve which normally involves non-porous polyester velcro which joins at the side to go over the fence links.

Manufacturers of crowd control barrier signs ensure that they are made from lightweight materials that are easy to manoeuvre. Most crowd control banners are made of materials that are extremely adaptable to extreme weather conditions. With all these benefits crowd control barrier signs remain to be a fantastic cost effective marketing tool.

The installation process also adds another benefit as more often that not a very smooth affair and the banners are angled to corners to fit inside the rounded corners of the barrier and is attached with cable ties. This whole process usually takes about 2 minutes per barrier which just speaks volumes of its marketable value for sponsors in any event scenario.
