When ordering a banner, there are a few things to consider. A lot of customers call us and tell us how big they want their banner, and then tell us what they want on the banner. The fact is, when purchasing a banner, you should consider how much text will be on the banner and how far away it needs to be read.
For example, if you order a banner that will be read 400 feet away (like an outfield fence on a baseball field), the lettering needs to be 8″ to 10″ tall. So, on a 4′ x 8′ banner (for example), you can get about 4 lines of text on the banner, and about 10 – 15 characters on each line. Basically, you can’t print a book on the banner, and you can’t put any ‘fine print’ on the banner because it would be too far away to read.
Or, if you want to hang a banner on the front of a banquet table, the banner needs to be no bigger than 28 inches tall. This is because most banquet tables are 29 inches tall, and you don’t want it dragging the ground and getting stepped on.
Our company has made thousands of banners and we will tell you up front if your banner is too small for your message, or too large for your table, or the wrong colors to attract your customer.
We custom make our banners in any size. That is, we don’t have ‘standard’ sizes because the rest of the world doesn’t seem to come in ‘standard’ sizes, and we know you want your banner to fit your specific needs.
