As your partner, our goal is to help your store succeed and a big part of that success depends on effectively advertising your store. Although our MBS Promo Guide offers extensive options, we understand that you may want to expand your marketing efforts even further. To help you think of new and creative ways to promote your biggest events, we’ll feature vendor recommendations for additional marketing resources once a week throughout the month of March. Take a look!

Vendor Name: Signs Now Columbia

Product: Vertical Attention Grabber Flags

Dimensions: The 10' flags generally have a viewable space of 27.56" x 94.5" although the exact shape of the "bow" may change slightly depending on each store's design. The final shape and size information is determined when the artwork has been submitted,

Uses: These signs are ideal for big in-store events such as annual sales, buyback, rental return, rush and more.

Benefits: These striking signs increase the visibility of your event exponentially. By placing them at key locations on campus, you can easily catch the attention of students and spread the word. Best of all, they’re weather resistant and reusable, so you don’t have to worry about reordering every term.

What Other Stores Are Saying: “We place these signs in major traffic areas on campus and they have been very effective at reminding students about our buyback. We’ve ordered similar signs from other vendors before and the quality of the material wasn’t nearly as strong as the ones we received from Signs Now Columbia. These flags are heavy-duty and well worth the investment; we’ve been very pleased.”

–Matt Branca, director of The College Store at Pennsylvania College of Technology
