Fall is in the air and for some that means crisp leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, and apple picking. But for millions across the country, fall means football season, and that means tailgating. Are you the type of tailgater who shows up an hour before the game with a bag of sandwiches and a 6-pack of beer? Or is tailgating a way of life for you where you arrive at the stadium hours in advance to stake out your spot, stoke the charcoals of your portable grill, and set up a portable living room? Serious tailgaters are a culture all their own and you too can join their ranks. It’s time to step up your tailgating game with custom stickers and magnets.
Let’s start with your vehicle. Are you really asking your friends and loved ones to hang out with you out of the back of your SUV without going all out for your team? If you’re a true fan, custom vinyl decals are the way to go. Support your team with team logos and slogans for the sides and back of your car. Cool accents like racing stripes really show you made an effort.
Clear window stickers along the back windshield are another place to customize your car for your tailgating party. They are easy to apply and can be placed without obstructing your view. Support your team every day, not just on Sundays.
If you use your car for work and need something removable, custom car magnets can show off your tailgate on Sundays and come right off Monday morning. You can even move them around. There are smaller magnets for team logos and large size car sign magnets for the side of your car. Create a custom logo for your party for a sign magnet and be the envy of every nearby tailgater. 30 mil car magnets are strong and won’t fall off, so even if the stadium is a long way from home, you won’t lose the magnets on the trip.
You may have spent hundreds on a Yeti cooler, but your tailgate gear should reflect your enthusiasm for your team. Don’t forget to outfit your cooler with custom die cut stickers of your team logo. Be helpful to your guests by labeling your coolers with their contents. People won’t have to open them as often and the drinks will stay cold. Have separate coolers for alcohol, non-alcoholic beverages, and food, each with their own label.
The grill is the focal point of a tailgate party. People wait for delicious burgers and hot dogs, milling around the grill in the meantime. You can personalize your grill hood with custom stickers. Some decorative flames at the edges, a fun grill nickname like Smokey the Bear or Hot Stuff, team logos, or a “Life of the Party” slogan all make for fun decorations for your grill.
Don’t’ forget your chairs when you’re preparing the party. Team licensed fold out chairs can cost a lot more than plain ones. You can customize your own chairs with team logo vinyl decals. They’re durable so they’ll survive people jumping up and out of the chairs.
There’s nothing worse than staking out your perfect parking spot only to have someone pull in right next to it as you’re setting up. Portable banner stands are an affordable, reusable way to reserve your party’s square footage. Once you roll into your spot, pop out the banner stand to let everyone know that this space is reserved for the best tailgating party ever.
You’re going to be very busy manning the grill, making sure your guests are comfortable, and discussing the latest team trade. If you want to make sure you don’t have any interlopers crashing your party, give everyone a nametag sticker. You’ll know if someone doesn’t belong right away.
