When companies are looking to advertise they have many choices to make: do they want to hand out flyers, buy time on the local television and radios stations or create banners to display in various locations? Banner advertising has always been a popular choice in the past and is still so today, largely because banners are one of the most versatile and inexpensive forms of advertising available. The best thing about banner printing is that the banners can be used over and over again with no further cash outlay needed.
There is a whole range of materials used in banner printing such as vinyl, plastic and nylon; some being more durable than others. Banners can be attached to surfaces by pole pockets in which the banner just slides onto a pole, or grommets in which they are attached by rope. Of course, banners can be printed either horizontally or vertically, further enhancing the opportunities for use.
For banners to be most effective there are some rules to adhere to, the most important of which is to keep it simple. A banner should be uncluttered, it should have a bold headline and any images should be vivid and of professional quality. Any points mentioned on the banner should be short and to the point and should contain the business logo and tagline if used for advertising. Make sure the banners have easy to read fonts and use bold colors.
Once the design choices have been made, it is best for a professional printing company to create the banners. With years of experience, a quality print firm can advise on the right type of banner for any purpose.
