Design tips from our graphic designers, Chris and Eddie:
“The best advice for banner printing is to choose the size of your sign before the design process. Creating an ad and trying to fit the agreed-upon copy and graphics on an certain banner size can result in stretching, cropping, or other sizing issues. When choosing a size, keep in mind the distance of your intended viewing audience – you want your product to be seen and read. A banner that’s too small will be illegible across a parking lot, but a banner sign hanging on a wall inside a shop probably doesn’t need to be the largest size available.”
“Influence Print recommends keeping your designs fairly simple. Excessive flashy images or gradients can result in unwanted lines or distortions. Meanwhile, banners that are too cluttered or busy with text or extreme colors can be hard for people to read, resulting in a loss of your message. As an example, most people have experienced the odd difficulty in reading blue neon signs at night from a distance without squinting. Don’t worry it’s not your eyes that are bad! (Your eyes are experiencing chromatic aberration similar to how a camera would behave.)
“We suggest that you consider methods of hanging early on in the design process. Vinyl banners are strong, but simply tacking one to the outside of your store could result in damage or loss in the event of a windstorm. The best bet is to print banners that have grommets to aid in hanging (and avoid placing items like phone numbers near these locations), and use a more hearty method of attachment.”
Materials we work with:
The majority of our customers are looking to get a vinyl banner printed, however if you need your banners to be on the artistic side, we can print on many substrates other than vinyl, just let us know! We stock a wide variety of materials including self adhesive vinyl, paper, cloth, canvas, window cling material, etc. Or we can of course work with your existing material.
For advertisements and announcements, vinyl is preferred because it’s tough and light and it can be hung on the side of a building, in a store window, on a fence, across the street, anywhere where people congregate. We use strong eco solvent inks which are waterproof and resist fading from sunlight, which makes them perfect for us indoors or outdoors.
To help hang your banners we can add metal grommets along the edges of the banner, which is useful to tie rope or bungee cords to. Send us your JPEG, TIFF, CRK, InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, or any other postscript file, and we’ll turn those files into brilliant, eye catching, high quality banners that will influence your audience.
Common banner sizes:
Customers often ask us, what’s the standard size of a banner? The truth is there is no standard size and we can print and trim to whatever size you’d like! The most effective size of your finished product really depends on how much wording you need, and whether or not you want to incorporate a picture, or a logo, as well as how far away people will be from the banner when they go to read it.
Our individual sheet printing capabilities are a maximum of 10 feet by as long as 110 feet. Some more common banner sizes are two feet by four feet, or three feet by eight feet, or four feet by ten feet. However, feel free to design your banner to any size you like. We don’t limit our customers’ banners to any specific size.
