When you start making a custom banner with your sign company, you might be overwhelmed by the amount of options that there are. You have to start by picking the material that your banner will be made of, continue with how big the banner is going to be, get a banner design together, and decide how you are going to have the banner hung or installed at your event.With all of these considerations, you might be racking your brain trying to find out how you’re going to make the right decisions. Here are all of the things you need to consider in order to make a great banner for your needs.
1. The Design is Right
The most important part of having a successful banner is getting a design that will truly capture the attention of your target audience. Whether you’re creating a banner for your business, a charity, or some other type of organization, the banner has to fit the aesthetics of the company that it’s trying to portray. Making sure that you have a top notch designer that has created banners before is incredibly important if you want it to end up being successful. If you want a great banner, you need to start with a great design.
How are you going to install or hang your banner? Simple installations can be done with grommets and rope, such as hanging from a fence or hanging on a ground level wall. For larger banners that need to be installed many feet in the air or on the side of a high rise building you will need a heavier material and an expert installation team to insure the banner is installed properly and will last over a period of time.
Generally, you’re going to want for your banner to be twice the size in length as it is in width. Common banner sizes are three feet by six feet, or four feet by eight feet for especially larger projects. These are the perfect dimensions for most needs, but you can change up the width to length ratio if you have a special project. Try to stay with dimensions with length twice the size of the width though, as it’s the easiest rule of thumb that you can follow to make sure that the banner ends up looking great.
Take the Extra Effort to Make a Banner That Looks Great
It’s going to take a little bit of effort to make a great looking banner with your sign company, but the final product is going to end up being well worth that effort. You’re going to have to invest time into working with a designer to make it look great, consider the installation options and make sure that the size ends up being right. If you do all three of these things, you have the best chance of creating a banner that’s going to turn heads.
