Signarama Fargo Appears on ESPN College GameDay 2014

by Todd Fry on September 23, 2014

Last year, we at Signarama Fargo got a big thrill when our work appeared on ESPN’s College GameDay. It happened because our North Dakota State University Bisons had won the 2012 FCS College Football Championship, and College GameDay broadcast right from downtown Fargo.

Signarama Fargo NDSU Bison Big HeadsWe printed off several Big Heads of the coach, key players, and even the announcers. We also printed some banners which could be seen hanging from the buildings outside. It was a big event with thousands of people in attendance. We couldn’t have been more proud.

So we were extra excited when College GameDay came back to Fargo again this year.

Signarama Fargo worked with NDSU to create promotional signage for the big day and the first home game since the Bisons won the FCS College Football Championship last year, making it the third year in a row.

We wanted to really highlight this accomplishment during the national coverage, so we replicated a 16′ x 31′ banner currently hanging in the Fargodome. We also created a Bison Pride banner, as well as eight more Big Heads of key players and the head coach.

ESPN cameras came to the Signarama store to film us printing out the championship banner, which would have been great coverage for our Signarama store! Unfortunately, the footage got cut in production, so it never made it to air. But we were all excited to see the finished product at the game.

Our local businesses showed their team spirit. We were asked by a friend of Signarama to create two very large banners to hang on his building. He wasn’t worried about whether they showed up on TV. He just wanted the community to know he supported his beloved Bisons.

Finally, you can’t have football without tailgating, and many Bison fans are also Signarama customers. They come to us for help with tricking out their pickups, trailers, cornhole boards, and other tailgating paraphernalia. With fans like this, it’s no wonder Fargo is consistently named one of the best tailgating spots in the country.
