About Prints and Events


Prints and Events was established to combine the expertise that our owner, Thomas Evans has for printing small business and trade show assets along with his experience and passion for producing live events. It was about 25 years ago when Thomas hosted his first event "StripFest" at Midway Dragstrip in a small town called Greeleyville, SC.

Through guerilla marketing and a conscious effort to make StripFest stand out, Thomas attracted thousands of spectators and participants from all across the country. This single event launched his career producing and hosting events all across the world and took him to California for 18 years. From huge televised events like his XDL Streetbike Freestyle Series and X-Games to AMA Road Racing, Supercross, Monster Jam and Stand alone events, Thomas has managed or emceed over 100 live events.

One necessity that seemed to fall to the wayside with events was great signage, flags, tents etc. Being a small business owner for all of his adult life, Thomas embraced the challenge and created West Coast Sign and Banner in the Bay Area of California. WCSAB helped out tons of small business owners, event designers, municipalities, transit services, some of the biggest names in the motorcycling industry and has even done work for huge corporations like Salesforce.

Fast Forward to 2023, Thomas' parents have retired, so he has sold WCSAB and moved back home to Charleston SC. Here he has hit the ground running, producing signage for the City of Hanahan, East Cooper Ducks Unlimited, CWR Marine, Dek-it, Turky's Towing and more.

In addition to producing printed goods, Prints and Events will also be offering event rental assets such as barriers, chairs, tables, sound systems and more. Thomas is taking on small business and event consultations on a limited basis and producing events like the Foam Zone Party, National Foam Party Day in house.
