Event Toolkit

This toolkit is a quick connection to the university specialists, departments and offices that are integral to event planning.

Banners, Props and Signage

Whether your event is a concert, lecture, press conference or reception, signage is an important addition. Reserve official University of South Carolina banners and podium signage and other props, including:

  • University logo pop-up banners (freestanding 3'x6.5' banners with university or campus branding or 5'x6.5' university-branded banners)
  • Easels
  • Directional signage
  • Podium signage
  • Ceremonial ribbon-cutting scissors
  • Hard hats
  • Ceremonial ground-breaking shovels

For information and availability of event props, please contact the Special Events Office. To request a banner, please complete the Banner Request Form [pdf] and email it to Carolyn Ash (ashc@mailbox.sc.edu).
