For the past five years, North Coast Signs has been proud to support the Vista Chamber of Commerce and its strawberry festival — the Vista Strawberry 5000 Run. This year, we continued that great tradition, creating custom vinyl banners. No better way to mark the starting and finishing points of the race!
The Vista Strawberry 5000 Run involves a 10km race, a 5km race, and kids’ races. Racers of all ages and skill levels get a spectacular look at what Vista has to offer, as the route runs through historic downtown Vista. There are several sites, including the town’s kite sculptures. At the end, racers will meet the vinyl finish line banner at the strawberry festival, the perfect way to refresh and relax after a run. And custom vinyl banners marked the way!
Our job was to help organizers by creating legible, informative custom vinyl banners that would mark the race route for runners. We consulted with the race team to understand what they were looking for in a sign, then created a design proof based on that consultation. With their approval, we manufactured the two custom vinyl banners, selecting the material and dimensions according to the customer’s needs and budget.
The two custom vinyl banners are large, at 3’ by 12’, created with 13oz matte vinyl and manufactured with grommets every four inches for hanging. That means that the banners are durable and strong, holding up to any elements on race day. The evenly spaced grommets are plentiful to reduce the stress on the banner, so it could potentially be re-used at a future race.
We knew how important it was to have these custom vinyl banners designed, manufactured, and installed in time for the race, and our ability to provide a quick turnaround on the project made that possible. Organizers had the banners ready and able to display with lots of time to spare, so there were no concerns about wayfinding leading up to the race. We care about our clients’ needs and, in this case, that meant meeting a deadline and working diligently to create the best product possible.
