German-Americans are the largest self-reported ancestral group in the United States, so it makes sense that there are hundreds of great Oktoberfest celebrations from coast-to-coast every year. We’re not saying one’s better than the other—each event adds its own unique regional flair to the traditional festivities—but we do believe the high-quality graphics combined with unrivaled customer service you can only find at FASTSIGNS will make your event the “can’t miss” autumn bash everyone looks forward to year after year. Here’s just a few examples of how FASTSIGNS can transform your fall-get together into an interactive, memorable experience for all!

MERCHANTS: Get Your Brand On!

Fall is the prime-time for the locally-sourced beer industry. Did you know that the retail dollar value from craft brewers in 2015 was $22.3 billion, up from $19.6 billion in 2014? Or that craft brewers currently provide an estimated 424,000 jobs in the United States? Those are some big numbers—and that means big competition. If you’re one of the thousands of start-up brewing companies striving to set yourself apart in a booming industry, you have to make a BIG impression at events. FASTSIGNS has got you covered—let the expert design professionals at FASTSIGNS create a customized branding strategy with our full range of affordable promotional products crafted to your specific needs.
