If you’ve ever been to a concert, one of the things that really stands out (besides the musicians, of course) is the stage set-up. You can see the band’s name and logo on the custom banners around the stage, grabbing your attention and making you focus on the performance. Well, that’s the whole point!
Before moving any further, you need to know what a band banner really is, why it’s useful to musicians, and what you need to know about their designs. Luckily for you, that’s exactly what you’ll learn below!
What Are Music Band Vinyl Banners?
If you’re a musician, you know how important branding is, which includes having unique visuals when you’re performing to really boost your on-stage presence. One of the best ways to make the audience remember your band is to provide them with visuals, like outfits, lighting, and even vinyl banners.
In simple words, these banners are a piece of vinyl with your band’s logo and name printed on it. That banner is hung around the stage as a backdrop for your band to really bring the attention to you.
As you can guess, banners have to be quite durable with high-quality printing, or they’d have to be replaced every few months or even weeks, which is too much of a hassle.
Banners are a great investment, especially if they’re made from high-quality materials because they’re so easy to hang and take down, so you can just have a portable backdrop that can fit into your backpack.
Why Use a Banner?
If you’re not convinced that using a banner is important, let me bring you back to the branding discussion. People, in general, respond better to visuals; if you have your own custom band sign and stage set-up, it’s more likely to stick in people’s memory.
In other words, the audience is more likely to remember the band’s general logo design than the actual name, so what’s the best way to ensure that the logo is loud and clear? Exactly, vinyl banners.
What’s more, in today’s digitized world, everyone loves to take out their phones and snap pictures, and I think you know where I’m going with this. Banners photograph so well, and they look great under stage light, which will result in having your band’s logo visible in every picture or video taken during your performance. It’s free publicity!
Besides, you can find cheap band signs and banners, and they’re reusable! Cheap banners aren’t a one-time thing because you can just take them down after your gig is over and reuse them for future gigs.
Online Design Tips
If you’ll be making your own banners, here are some tips to guide you through the process.
First and foremost, don’t overdo it. While it may be intriguing to add many colors, different fonts, and even some images, that might end up being counterproductive. You want the banner to bring attention to you, not take it away.
So, don’t use more than one font throughout the banner. And while we’re on the subject of fonts, ensure that the size of the text is big enough that even someone sitting in the back row can read it comfortably. As for the font’s color, make sure there’s enough contrast for the writing to be easy to read — black on white and white on black are a good place to start.
What size of banner to buy is another important decision to make. If you’re performing at a large venue, you want to make sure as many people as possible can view your banner from a distance so we highly suggest purchasing one of the larger banner sizes.
If you’re looking for design ideas or inspiration, start with your own band. Evaluate what kind of music you play and what overall theme you want the stage to have.
For example, using colors like red, orange, and black give off a “dark” vibe that might work perfectly for rock bands. Another excellent and more “personal” approach is to choose the color palette based on your album cover.
Further, you need to take into consideration the kind of venues you usually play in. For indoor venues that use artificial lights, going for a dark background for your banner is a superb approach because lighter colors might be too distracting. Contrarily, going for a lighter background for outdoor venues can open up space even further.
As for the materials, it goes without saying that you need our high-quality fabric that can stand the test of time. Also, the printing shouldn’t be too reflective because that might not work well with lights and flash photography.
These banners are a critical part of your band’s stage set-up. They look great in photographs, and they can really leave an impression on the audience if they’re done correctly.
