Video: Intro to The Soul Box Project
Put your exhibit into the national context for your visitors. On a monitor in your space, play this informational video on loop.
Video and Flyer: How to Fold a Soul Box
If you are hosting a Soul Box-folding activity or including a table in your exhibit space, you may play the video in a loop or place a print-out into a plexi sign holder. Include paper cut to 8.5 x 8.5 square and (optional) markers, glue stick, or other materials to personalize Soul Boxes.
Print the step-by-step directions 3 times on stiff paper and tape together to make a convenient, hands-free, 3-sided table-top unit.
Soul Box Logos and Banners
Connect your event to this nationwide movement with these bold Soul Box Project graphics.
Please always include the Soul Box Project name and/or logo in your
□ exhibits and events as printed signage
□ social media posts: @SoulBoxProject / #SoulBoxProject
□ website and online notices of your exhibit/event
□ printed publications or notices
□ communications with local media
For press conferences, talks and performances using Soul Boxes as a backdrop, place larger logos over panels behind the speaker so The Soul Box Project is clearly identified for news cameras.

Exhibit Signage – Introduction to Your Exhibition or Display
Every display of Soul Boxes should tell visitors how many people are being represented by the Soul Boxes on view. This PDF contains a sign template that will be tailored to your specific needs. Contact us at exhibit@SoulBoxProject.org to further customize signage for your exhibit or event.
Signage: Intro and statistics signage for U.S. (2 pages, 48″h x 12″ w)
Contact exhibit@SoulBoxProject.org for this graphic with text relevant to your area.
This signage pairing explains what 588 Soul Boxes (6 panels) represents and puts your display into the context of a nationwide movement. Send PDF to your local printer (such as FedEx Office) to print and mount on foam core backing. Hang these signs in line with Soul Box display panels or the “Add a Soul Box” graphic for a professional look. They are all 48″ high. Also good back-to-back on a garment rack, photo backdrop stand, or pipe & drape structure.
Signage: Add a Soul Box DIY panels
Download and print one or more of these blank panels on which visitors may mount their Soul Boxes in your exhibition. The height of these printable panels matches our loaned panels, but these can also be used alone for completely DIY exhibitions. Foam core (48″h x 13″ or 24″ w) is an ideal sign backing for pinning Boxes into the grid pattern–and easily removing them later. Alternatively, attach Soul Boxes with velcro or tape for a more permanent display. Laminating this board will make the board and the attached Boxes easily reusable.
Half-Sheet Informational Flyer for Visitors
Download and print double-sided on 8.5×11, then cut in half for visitors to take away.
Tip: Your local copy shop, like FedEx Office, can easily and economically print these flyers for you.

Pin back Velcro (protruding on “hook” Velcro panels) with paper clips [stop at 0:25]
Video: How to Attach Hooks to Panels
If you are installing Soul Box Panels on “pipe and drape” structures or any horizontal bar, attaching hooks to the mesh so they are invisible and level involves just a small trick.
How to Make a Panel
Request an official Panel-Making Kit to replicate our process for greater durability and compatibility with existing panels.
See how on this video.
