Spring is just around the corner, which means it’s time for a new season of high school sports: baseball, softball, wrestling, cheerleading, tennis and more. It’s also a good time to start thinking about ways to support your favorite player. Creating custom signs and banners is an easy way to cheer them on. From school spirit yard signs to banners and other creative options, here are a few ideas to get you started this spring.
Cutout Signs/Fat Head Signs
Fathead signs are great for a laugh, but they also show your school spirit loudly and proudly. You can create a custom cutout of your player’s face (in any size – the bigger, the better) to show off at the game. Simply choose a favorite picture or their team photo and get ready to cheer.
Design Idea: Say cheese! Grab a favorite selfie from your athlete and surprise them with it at the game.
School spirit yard signs are super versatile. You can make a classic rectangular sign with a photo of your player or the entire team. Or, if you want to display a specific message, you can choose cutout letters and shapes to spell out a celebratory cheer. Not only will your athlete see and appreciate it, but you can show your school spirit to the entire neighborhood. Both are a great option before senior night, a big game or other important occasions.
Design Idea: Spell out a cheerful message with individual letters, such as “Congrats, Brianna!” Or “We’re Team Dylan!”
Looking for a more classic choice? Banners are another foolproof option. They are often a good fit for display in schools and gymnasiums, and due to the large size, offer plenty of space for text and images. You can fit an image of the whole team or highlight a specific athlete. Hang one in your home or on the front porch for the perfect party backdrop.
Design Idea: Design a banner highlighting your athlete’s achievements and stats from the season.
Show everyone on the road how proud you are of your athlete with a custom car magnet. Whether you print a simple picture, your athlete’s number or a fun slogan, these are eye-catching statements with low commitment. They are easily removable and don’t leave any sticky residue behind once removed – if you ever want to remove it, that is.
Design Idea: For a fun magnet, add an interactive message such as “Honk if you cheer for the Timberwolves!”
Want to think outside the box? Consider creating custom stickers to wear to sporting events. Whether you highlight the team or just show off your athlete’s smiling face, these are sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Create a whole batch to distribute for away games, homecoming or a team banquet.
Design Idea: For a little humor, create a sticker with a fun joke or pun. For instance, feature a baseball player’s name with the message “Stephen is a CATCH!”
To boost team morale and show how much you care, consider creating labels for a few treats. Whether you bake the treats yourself or partner with a local bakery, you can customize each one with a label for your school team. These are also a great party favor for banquets and other gatherings.
Design Idea: Hand out individually wrapped cookies with labels that read, “How SWEET it is to be a Lion.”
