Vinyl Banner Ideas & Tips
From vinyl banners to retractable banner stands, banners are an affordable way to attract attendees at your next trade show, add punch to your storefront window, and stand out at your next client meeting. Here’s what to do:
Tip #1: Go big, go bold.
Let’s face it—basic banners and ordinary lettering are boring. Don’t be afraid to go big and bold with a creative, eye-catching design. Surprise potential customers with the unexpected. You won’t just get attention – you’ll get remembered.
Tip #2: Bring in the graphic designers.
There’s nothing worse than a poorly designed banner – it’s a waste of money and hurts your brand. Let the graphic design experts do their job and design a creative and attractive banner.
Tip #3: Trust the experts.
Don’t fall for a generic, online banner company just to save a few bucks. Remember, a banner is more than just a simple sign; it’s an investment in your business’ brand. Choose a company that will take the time to understand your needs and work one-on-one with you to create a customized solution.
Tip #4: Prepare for Mother Nature.
If you need an outdoor banner, invest in one that’s specially printed with UV ink to avoid fading. And choose a thick, durable material that will stand up to wind, rain and snow.
Tip #5: Stand out with a custom banner.
Why settle for generic when you can get a personalized banner without breaking the bank? Custom banners are the ideal way to promote a product, advertise an upcoming event or brand your business – and you’ll really stand out from the generic competition.
Tip #6: Quality counts.
It’s a clichéd saying for a reason. Quality counts, especially when it comes to vinyl banners. Spending a few extra dollars for quality construction can mean the difference between sloppy craftsmanship and effective marketing.
Tip #7: Spice up your trade show display with a retractable banner.
Tired of your old trade show display but don’t have room in the budget for a new one? Add a little dynamism to your trade show display with a retractable banner. It’s a lot cheaper than a new trade show display, and it’s the perfect way to promote a new product or service.
Tip #8: Watch out for hidden fees.
Sadly, hidden fees and extra costs are just another downside to using online banner printing companies. Before you place an order, check to be sure there are no hidden costs for graphic design assistance, image processing or custom sizes. Just another reason to use your local banner printing company!
Tip #9: Plan ahead.
Before you design and print your banner, think about your goals and location needs. Whether you’re promoting a new product outside your store, displaying contact information or enhancing brand awareness at an indoor trade show, the location and purpose affect the type of banner you need. With proper planning your banner will be a wise marketing investment for years to come!
Tip #10: Stand out with a pole banner.
For a contemporary and professional way to advertise your business or promote a community event, invest in a banner pole. These banners look great on the side of light poles, parking poles and more.
