Vinyl Banners: The Tool to Make Advertising Easy and Convenient

Vinyl Banners: The Tool to Make Advertising Easy and Convenient


When it comes to signs and advertising for your business, there are several highly customizable options available from decals to monument signs and dozens in between. One type of signage, vinyl banners, have been around a bit longer than the others, but they aren’t going anywhere any time soon.

Vinyl banners are a great way to get your business noticed, spreading your message with ease, simplicity, and convenience. We’ve created a quick guide covering the outstanding benefits of vinyl banners to show how easy it is to bring this simple-yet-powerful tool to your business’ advertising arsenal.

Cut Down on Costs

Naturally, business owners will seek any opportunity to cut costs and save money when it comes to advertising. Savvy business owners, on the other hand, will only do so as long as quality is upheld to ensure their advertising has a high ROI. By choosing vinyl banners, owners can take advantage of both lower costs and high-quality signage that works.

Choosing a vinyl banner is a cost-efficient choice due to the lower material and printing costs compared to other custom signs. The extreme outdoor weather durability these banners provide also make it a strong and lasting choice, while their reusability power is unmatched by other forms of signage.

Take Advantage of Customization

Customization is key in advertising. It helps your message spread in a unique way and brings attention to your business and your business only. Vinyl banners are highly customizable, and taking advantage of this feature provides nothing but high-powered advertising for any business needs.

If your custom banner needs to have a certain printed message, font, graphic, image or anything, really, it can. The options to make your banners unique to your message are unlimited. You can design the banner in-house, have it designed by our agency, or even use pre-made templates to bend to your will and needs.

The materials can vary as well. You can choose all-vinyl or solid fabric banners, or transparent mesh banners as well. Each provides similar benefits are far as customization, aesthetics, and durability.

Test the Perfect Location

One of the most exciting benefits of business banners is the absolute versatility when choosing a display location. By using a flat display style hung up by grommets, a custom banner can be easily moved until it finds its perfect location, whether that is outside on the side of a building or indoors with a lobby.

If only two grommets are used, event banners can become flags for an even more unique approach. Alternatively, free-standing retractable banners paired with banner stands also allow for maximum portability and are perfect for conventions, conferences, and expos.

Think Outside of the Banner

Because of the vast versatility of these signs, business owners have the opportunity to think outside of the box (or banner). The technology involved in banner printing allows for a lot of flexibility. Your custom banner can be double-sided for maximum exposure or to have two functioning banners in one to use at will.

The durable and lasting materials also allow for a great range of usage as well, so banners need not only be used for business advertising. Alternatively, these signs can be used for just about any message you can think of from directional signs to attention-grabbing event flyers, and whatever else you can come up with to serve your needs.

A Guide to Banners: Materials, Shapes & Sizes

A Guide to Banners: Materials, Shapes & Sizes

Modern trade show and event banners come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some main categories to discuss to help buyers narrow down their options.

Common Banner Materials

Vinyl

Vinyl signs and banners have long been the first choice for businesses looking to promote and advertise and it’s easy to see why. Vinyl lends itself to bright colors, is waterproof, can be cut to any shape, and is phenomenally affordable. Along with being extremely durable, vinyl is very easy to print and can be produced nearly on-demand. Use Heavy-Duty vinyl for outdoor environments, matte-vinyl for indoor signs, and glossy vinyl for short-term outdoor promotions.

Fabric

Fabric banner displays are most commonly made from polyester, nylon, satin, or other synthetic fibers. Thanks to modern technology they can be printed and stretched quickly and efficiently and offer an ideal material for indoor and outdoor retail signage. In particular, fabric lends itself to a more comfortable, permanent-feeling banner thanks to its unique texture and warmth.

Common Banner Shapes

Feather and Teardrop Banners

Feather and teardrop banners are low cost and easy to pack up and transport. Looking like a feather hanging off a pole, they are extremely simple in design, easy to set up, and can be equipped with a variety of different fabrics or designs for different circumstances.

Flagpole Banners

While similar to the banners mentioned above, flagpole banners instead use a straight metal pole and a perpendicular top pole. The banner itself is in a rectangle and the entire design can be sized up or down as you have need. Interestingly, scientists suggest that rectangular banners be married with curved graphics, as the human brain responds better to arches than abrupt angles or clean lines.

Rectangular Hanging Banners or Banner Stands

When banners are mounted above an exhibit, hanging for the ceiling, or on a different mount that holds them perpendicular to the ground, they are typically designed to be square. The use of height in these circumstances draws the eye up or down, depending, and pulls visitors into your store or trade show booth.

Common Banner Sign Sizes

Signs can typically be produced for whatever size or purpose you need. However, if you need a standard size rectangular banner some common sizes include:

  • 2’x3’
  • 3’x2’
  • 2’x4’
  • 3’x5’
  • 3’x6’
  • 3’x8’
  • 4’x8’

Common approximate feather banner sizes include:

  • 10’
  • 15’
  • 16.4’
  • 19.7

You should also keep in mind that the thicker your banner material, the more sturdy, durable, and longer-lasting it will be.
