Choosing the Correct Size for Your Banner

banner signs

With the festival season upon us many people are looking to purchase banners to promote their event, booth, or goods and services.  Unfortunately, most people have little experience designing a banner and thus are very unsure about what to purchase. Infinity Signs NW has helped many of our customers talk through the objective for their banner, the location it will be hung in, and the features it needs to have to help them determine exactly what they should order.  It’s important that your sign be large enough to be read from a distance, but not ridiculously big where it’s intended to hang on the side of the building, not the front of a trade show booth.

Banners are the absolutely perfect way to stay within your marketing budget, while doing an excellent job promoting your business.  The standard size for an outdoor vinyl banner that will hang horizontally is 2’ x 6’ or 3’ x 10’ while one intended to hang vertically is often 4’ x 10’ or 4’ x 6’. A banner of this size can easily be seen by hundreds of people walking around at an event or driving by in their car.  Smaller size banners are also available if you’re intending to promote an individual product within your store or only to foot traffic.

If you’ve got a special occasion coming up – birthday, graduation party, family reunion, wedding, baby shower, etc. then you may want a banner to announce the location and promote the event.  Typically these banners are 3’ x 6’ up to 4’ x 8’.  This is the appropriate size if you want to hang the banner on a wall or over the celebrant’s table.  If you’re an organization looking to make a big announcement such as the opening of a new location, a ground breaking ceremony or even an upcoming Vacation Bible School you’ll want to look at a larger vinyl banner.  10’ x 8’ would be considered a medium size banner for this type of promotion, but you can certainly go larger.

Regardless of the event, business or product you’re looking to promote a banner is a great way to get the information out there and bring the customers in.  Infinity Signs NW is ready and willing to help you come up with the perfect banner.  We can customize your banner for your color preferences, graphics and images, as well as font and texts.  Give us a call today and let us get the word out!
