Directional Digital Printed Area Banner

Hosting a company BBQ? Prepping for an annual trade show? If you’re holding a temporary event or celebration, indoors or outdoors, a vinyl banner is an ideal way to share information. It is more affordable than other, more permanent, sign solutions, and it can be easily taken down, moved, and stored. At the same time, advances in large format digital printers ensure that any graphic you dream up can be printed crisply, in long-lasting colour, even under a time crunch.

Because of their low maintenance, banners have a versatility that other signs might not. You don’t have to rely on professional installers to hang your banner, so you can switch up its position throughout the year. For returning customers, this keeps your banner from blending in to its surroundings. Furthermore, they can often be placed where more fixed signs can’t – as long as you have proper permission. In a stadium or public park, for example.

When creating your banner, the standard sign design tips apply. Be aware of limited space and keep your content focused on the essentials. For instance, if your banner is advertising your business, you can feature a single eye-catching image, your business logo, a pithy call to action, and a way for the viewer to find more information. If your banner is being used as part of an event’s wayfinding system, multiple small banners can be used to guide visitors and identify key areas. If your banner is for a tradeshow booth, chances are your audience is looking for detailed information. You can use a large banner to capture all the key points of your product or service.

Vinyl banners are uncomplicated but they still require some basic maintenance. If you’re using your banner outdoors, keep it looking fresh by periodically wiping away grime with a cloth and some warm water. Be aware of the local climate. Banners are durable, but its life can be extended by limiting its exposure to direct sunlight and heavy winds. Finally, when you’re ready to store your sign, roll it up tight and place it in a cool, dry area. Try not to stack anything over it, as it can cause creases.
