Vinyl banners have one purpose and it should serve that purpose well: to catch people’s attention and stir it up so that whatever the banners say it will be interesting to them. That is why it is important that the designs stand out and set themselves apart from the other banners out there.
People pass by vinyl signs in a matter of seconds. Rarely would you see people who stop and stare at signs on a busy day. A well placed vinyl banner should be clear enough to be seen from afar and should be unique enough to be noticed. Colors play a big role in this. The signs should be printed in colors that are pleasing to look at and be clear enough to get the message across even from a distance. Often times, vinyl banner signs are placed outdoors subjecting them to varying weather conditions. A poorly made sign would fade and be destroyed by extreme weather conditions and eventually would just be a waste of money and effort. Banners should be made from durable materials and the ink used should last against rain, snow, strong winds and sunlight.
Signs should not be too cluttered with design. They should show the character of the product or company being advertised. The message should be short and concise but it should be able to be original and catchy enough to get attention and be remembered. Again, people will see them for just a few seconds so it’s important to make those seconds count. People should be able to associate the product or company to the signs for them to be successful.
Banners are usually the front line advertising tools that most companies use. That is why they should be given proper attention and printed by the #1 Source for vinyl banners!

- Banners With Grommets
Grommets on banners allow for hanging it using rope.
- Banners With Hemming
Hemming a banner reinforces the edges of the banner to make it more durable and resistant to tearing. If a banner will be displayed outdoor, then it is almost always a good choice to have the banner hemmed. If the banner is smaller in size and will be placed indoor, then hemming is not always essential.
- Billboard Banners
Billboards are large banner signs promoting a business, product, movie, show or event. Since they are generally very large in size they can contain text, elaborate backgrounds and images. They are effective advertising tools since they can be seen by everyone that drives along the highway. An effective billboard banner will catch people's attention and get them interested in whatever the billboard is promoting. One of the main reasons why many large companies invest in these advertising tools rather than on TV commercials is because the sign provides constant exposure, every hour of every day. People that work in the city use highways to travel to and from the metro, which is why they often see the same billboard signs over and over again.
- Double-sided Banners
If you're planning to display the banner in an open space where it will be visible from both sides, then a double-sided banner is the perfect choice. You have the option of placing the same message on both sides or even a different message on each side.
- Indoor Banners
Banners hung by businesses indoor often advertise sales events. They are also often seen indoor at anniversary and birthday parties. Since the banners hang inside and are not exposed to the elements such as rain and wind, they can usually last for a fairly long time.
- Large Banners
Due to the development of new media, the majority of the banners created nowadays are digitally printed on huge format ink-jet printers which have the capacity to produce vivid quality text and images. In spite of this modernization, the size of the banner still determines the readability of the message and its capacity to create awareness to a specific audience. When your marketing objectives include elevating the interests of potential clients it is important to use large banners. Printed banners are an ideal option as they increase the perceived vividness of the message and reinforce the color scheme and images of the banner. Although the use of large banners enhances the clarity of the message, it is still vital to avoid chaotic backgrounds, cluttered patterns, and other forms of distractions to ensure that the banners are clear and properly organized. Restricting the number of creative elements such as images is the best way to establish a good impression among potential customers.
- Outdoor Banners
Outdoor banners can be a great addition for any business establishment. They can attract people off the streets and into stores to buy products and services. Placing outdoor banners or signs in the right places will gradually help in effectively advertising a business or event. They are durable and made to last.
- Pole Banners
These type of banners are generally installed by sliding poles through banner pole pockets. Generally, the pole pockets are on the left and right sides but there instances where the pockets are actually on the top and bottom of the banner. Since Pole Banners are almost always vertical, it is important to have a message that is clear, short and direct to the point. They simply do not have space for long sentences. Limit the amount of images used and apply contrasting text and background colors to make sure the message stands out. Make your banner easily readable so that the audience can understand the message you want to convey. The best color combinations that work are lighter background colors against a darker text color, and vice versa.
- Photo/Picture Banners
Photo banners typically have 1-2 photos placed on them. It's important to use high-quality images so that the they do not appear pixelated and faded when printed. These types of banners are popular for birthdays, especially for children birthday parties! However, they are also used by Real Estate agents, at graduations and also with congratulatory messages.
- Small Banners
Smaller banners are usually used when distance from the sign is not an important factor. This is often the case with with indoor birthday parties or office events where the audience is in close proximity to the banner and smaller signs work just fine.
- Street Banners
A street banner is a durable and colorful banner placed on a street pole. It could be either attached to a pole with ropes or attached by the ends of a steel frame. They are generally made to withstand extreme outdoor conditions and sometimes also contain wind slits in order to let the wind pass through. Most of these banners are used for promoting community events such as festivals and Christmas. This type of banner is a great tool for advertising especially for businesses that are located alongside the street. Keep in mind that a street banner often has a vertical layout which is why it requires a bit more creativity with the design layout and verbiage.
- Wall Banners
A wall banner can contain a message and picture about the business, services or products to be advertised. It can have grommet holes on the top and bottom for hanging or simply placed on the wall using strong tape or other adhesives. It is very durable and can be used on both outer and inner walls. However, it is still important to clean it regularly, especially if it is placed outside.

Four Fast Tips to Make the Best Vinyl Event Banners

For example, will there be free food, fun activities, or prizes to incentivize attendees? Also, in terms of content, keep the banner’s target audience in mind. Think about what the banner’s audiences care about and what will compel them to attend. For example, if a vinyl banner is made for an event on a residential college campus, keep that demographic in mind: late teens to early twenties, low funds, fun-seeking people. By consider a target audience and advantages of an event, banners can best feature content that will encourage readers to attend.
2) Create a Brand-Cohesive Vibe...
Whether an organization, nonprofit, company, volunteer group, or other unit of people is hosting an event, keep that group’s vibe in mind. Viewers should get a sense of what the host group is about by looking at the vinyl banner. This will attract attendees who are interested in or conforming to the group’s brand and image. Brand cues can be conveyed in any number of ways: fonts, colors, images, diction, tone, and layout. If Ohio State University is throwing an event, chances are advertisements will be in the school colors, scarlet and grey. If Apple electronics brand is hosting an event, chances are the advertisements will include the iconic apple logo. So, which ever group is pulling off an event, make sure there are some elements that tie in the host organization.
3) Prioritize the Accessibility of the Banner...
The next tip for making the best event banners is to make them accessible. This includes two key parts. First, is the banner readable? Second, is the banner in a good location? A good location means that vinyl banners should be made for areas of high-traffic where those likely interested in the event will see it. For example, a community art festival should have banners at the community grounds where it will be held, such as a park or civic center, as well as at places where artsy people go, like local art hubs including cafes, studios, and art supply stores. A readable banner means that the banner’s message can be seen and understood quickly by its target audience. If a banner is going to hung outside of a bar, for example, plan on intoxicated people reading in night conditions. So, fewer words in large, clear print and contrasted colors will work best.
4) Have a Clear Call to Action...

Does the banner give them the key information that they need to take the next step? This information includes things like date of the event, time of the event, location of the event, and what attendees need to bring to the event. A great way to reinforce this information is to have contact information on the event banner. This can be the host’s phone number, an organization’s contact email, or a relevant social media handle or tag. What the best outreach information is will be highly dependent on who the target audience is. For example, an event that caters to senior citizens will not find social media contact info very useful. However, events catering to younger demographics will find social media contact info a fantastic resource for answering questions and continuing to promote the event with the help of vinyl banners!
