How Golf Tournament Signs Are Created

by John Robbins on January 28, 2014

Golf tournament signs that need to draw attention without being overly complex or expensive, many community golf tournament organizers call for Coroplast (corrugated plastic) signs to carry their sponsors’ logos.

Chambers of commerce and nonprofit organizations utilizing golf tournaments as a fundraiser, hole sponsorships are an ideal way to promote the local community and area businesses, as well as cover costs and raise funds for the hosting organization.

And just like their political and real estate counterparts, golf tournament signs are sturdy enough to withstand the elements, although they typically don’t have to last for more than a few days.

The golf tournament signs can carry designs on both sides, so the sponsor’s logo can be seen if you’re coming or going. And because these signs are inexpensive, it’s easy for a tournament organizer to fold the cost of the signs into the sponsorship without eating into the overhead.

In creating golf tournament signs, the local Signarama store’s graphic designer will work with the tournament organizer to come up with a base design. This is usually a photo or background, with the tournament logo, plus the sponsor’s logo.

The designer will create the appropriate number of signs — one for each hole, plus any special signs — by creating individual graphic files for each sign. The designs are printed twice to a vinyl sheet, and both sides are applied to the Coroplast. The signs are then covered with a clear protective laminate to protect them from the elements, which lets them be reused for future tournaments, making them ideal for returning sponsors.

The golf tournament signs are usually displayed at the tee box at the start of each hole, for brand recognition. They do not have a phone number or website, because the people are there to play golf; they’re not thinking about writing down phone numbers or websites. Just stick with a basic logo and company name, nothing more.

John Robbins has owned his SIGNARAMA store in Redding, California, since 2005 with his wife, Ashley. Before that, he worked in the telecommunications industry in make-ready engineering. They do a lot of printed signs with an even mix of everything. SIGNARAMA Redding has done a lot of vehicle wraps in the past, and John says they're one of the area's leaders for vehicle wraps. But he also says they do an even spread of every kind of sign work, and have four large sign printers on site.
