On Site Sign Ops (OSSO), Deluxe Design’s unique division of signage has our crew working at music festivals and large scale events across North America. Using wide format printers, a variety of media, tools, hardware, and a few trade secrets our team prints and installs signs on location for many different events.
We are lucky to work in fun and interesting environments, like deep in the Whistler Mountains at Pemberton Music Festival, on sandy Gulf Shore beaches of the Hangout, or on the race track at Las Vegas Speedway at Electric Daisy Carnival.

OSSO’s mobile print shops are custom outfitted trailers. Our production scope includes but is not limited to signage for wayfinding, VIP, ADA, medical, box office, food and beverage, bars, vendors, sponsorship installations, production, traffic, and security. Back at home Rio Rancho, New Mexico we also make t-shirts, screen printed posters, credentials, laminates, scrim and other festival necessities. When the event is over we take everything down, inventory, and palletize all signs. This is ensures everything is neatly packaged and ready for next season.

The majority of our products are fabricated prior to the event, but in the fast paced environment of music festival production things are guaranteed to change and new signs are always needed. That is where OSSO steps in, printing signs on the fly with a quick turnaround. We have found many problems can be easily solved with good looking signage.

For example, just two hours before the event begins the Fire Marshall might state that the venue needs 10 more Exit signs. He states without the proper signage the venue will not open. In this case, the festival’s production team can easily come to our trailer and discuss their needs. We then print the signs, install them, and the show goes on. Or maybe it’s just ten more “no parking signs”, “no hammocks on this tree”, or a few directionals to help VIP’s get to their cabanas. This is extremely convenient when a festival is located in a remote location where a local print shop might be hours away.
Our signage always stays consistent with festival branding and artistic vision. Our design team also has the capabilities to create all festival branding from scratch. (Shaka Tower with schedule, sponsors, and maps)
(Box Office Signage at Life is Beautiful Festival)
Working year-round at music festivals, our team has become increasingly integrated in festival production. We stay in tune with site operations and can operate heavy equipment. Our job requires us to have a strong grasp of patron needs, maps, festival layouts, vendor, and sponsor needs. We work around the clock doing everything we can to enhance the festival experience. OSSO, it’s not just a business it’s a lifestyle.
