Signage


Temporary Signage Templates

These templates were created for your “day of” show or event-based signage needs for placement in A-frames, banners, and posters on UA campus. As these are for events, we have designed these templates with clarity of time/place in mind. The templates are designed to be easy to use, and follow UA brand guidelines for graphic elements and logo size, color, and placement. Simply choose the template you need, open, and start typing.

The UA Temporary Signage Templates are available as Microsoft Word documents for in-house poster printing, and Adobe InDesign files for larger A-frame/sidewalk sandwich board signs and banners.

 


Customizing the Signage Template

  • Open your desired template document, save and rename
  • Enter text for:
    • Host/Center/College/Department name
    • Event title
    • Presenter Name
    • Today/Tonight, and time
    • Location
    • Price or other important details
    • Footer: website or contact information
  • In the templates, adjust the arrow to point in direction of your event as related to the eventual sign placement and orientation
    • If your printer is laying out your larger sign design, you will need to provide instruction to rotate the arrow as needed

Printing your Signs

Desktop Printing

When your design is complete, print in-house directly from the Word templates for small quantities. For a few cents per page, the printers below can create a professionally-produced sign that can make an excellent impression. Many of the printers below also provide design services and are very familiar with implementing the UA brand. 

  • If you would like professional quality prints for simple documents, take advantage of the campus-wide cloud print service, CatPrints.

Larger Signs

For A-Frame "sandwich board" signs, foam boards, lamination, or vinyl signage with grommets, save your file as a PDF, then request estimates and submit print requests to one of the UA print centers on campus:
