Bike Virginia, is a 501c3 nonprofit based in Richmond, VA. They needed a banner and decals for their big event they hold every year, the Bike Virginia Tour. They contacted us, Toucan Signs and Graphics, and we were more than happy to help them with design and fabricate a banner, as well as print some decals.
Stickers are a fun and easy way to market your business or organization, plus everyone loves to be given stickers! Stickers are a great marketing tool because they’re small, lightweight, and can be adhered to almost anything. They can be made in any size, and we chose 4” by 4” for these decals. This is a good size to achieve visibility without being overwhelming. The custom banner was 96″ wide and 48″ tall and was printed on 13oz matte finish vinyl material. Brass grommets were added so the banner could easily be hung up and displayed. This particular banner also doubled as a backdrop for photographers to capture the victories of the cyclists at the end of the tour.
We posted some photos so you can see the final products. The font chosen for the stickers is modern and matches the bold graphics. The website is printed at the bottom of the decal, so folks can learn more about the organization and its efforts. The decals were printed in a variety of text and background combinations to appeal to everybody. Bright and bold colors like yellow, orange, pink and, black were chosen. The text was white or black, depending on what looked best against the background color. For the banner’s background, they chose a gray gradient that fades into an epic orange sunset featuring a closeup of a cyclist. To contrast with the darker background, the text was chosen to be white in a thick, bold, and modern font. The banner’s graphics also included a large gold ribbon to congratulate the thousands of bicyclists who completed the tour.
The mission of Bike Virginia is to promote cycling throughout every county in the whole state. They want biking to be ubiquitous for both residents and tourists alike, and they are dedicated to spreading awareness through education and other initiatives like the annual Bike Virginia Tour. The organization works with elected officials, implements advocacy programs, and provides consulting services to help make biking safe for cyclists.
