Pole Banners for the Washington Nationals & Winter Classic
Posted on October 2, 2014
UPDATED: CSI produces hundreds of pole banners in DC for the Washington Nationals
CSI was asked to produce and install several hundred pole banners for the NL East Champion Washington Nationals. The Washington Nationals have been tearing up the MLB this season and clinched the NL East last week. As a result, a massive stadium-area rebranding campaign took place to let everyone know they were playoff-bound once again. Featuring the tag lines “Nothing But October,” and “We’re In!” the banners went up all around the stadium and throughout Downtown DC’s Business Improvement District’s (BID) 138-block area.
The banners were produced over a period of 4 days at the shop. Images are printed on both sides, so front-to-back registration is critical. After the pole banners have been printed, they are trimmed to shape and size. Finally, pole pockets are sewn in and grommets are added. The banners are then ready for install.
Photos during production and of the finished products are below, as well as some links to local-area write-ups and video. CSI has installed pole-banners throughout the DC/MD/VA area and beyond. If you are interested in pole-banners of any size and shape, please feel free to contact us!
UPDATE: CSI produced similar pole banners for the 2015 NHL Bridgestone Winter Classic held at Nationals Park on January 1, 2015. See more photos below.
Here are some online mentions at the Washington Post’s DC Sports Bog and Downtown DC’s website. Video of WJLA’s coverage of the pole banners can be seen here (or by clicking on the photo below):
