This bandsaw fence (made by Manu) looks similar to a parallel (or "rip") fence on the table saw. It is attached to the bandsaw's table with two small clamps.
However, you may need to use it at a slight angle depending on the sawband! If the blade drifts, a parallel fence will only cause you trouble... Determine the correct angle by freehanding a cut along a straight line for a few cm, then set the fence according to your workpiece!
Next, we could make a magnet-held "point fence" like Andrew Klein's really fancy one with integrated bearing "feather board"!
