If you want to call attention to your business or advertise an event, a custom vinyl banner is an effective option to accomplish this goal. Not only can you personalize the sign to your needs, but you can take it down and move it, as needed. A banner is also a great solution, if you need a sign that you can transport to events or other company-related occasions. Before you order your new banner, there are a few details to explore to make sure that the banner is a great fit for your needs.

1. The Size of the Banner

When it's time to design your custom banner, one of the first details that you'll need to select is your preferred banner size. Vinyl banners come in a variety of different dimensions, so that you can easily find one that meets your specifications. Though you want your banner to be easily visible to passing customers, it should also comfortably fit in the space that you have allocated for it. 

2. How You Want to Hang the Banner

Another item that you'll need to ponder is whether you want to hang your banner horizontally or vertically. Though both options are widely available in multiple dimensions, this details will affect the design and layout of your banner. 

3. Whether the Banner Should Incorporate Additional Features

It's possible to incorporate multiple features to further customize the banner to the needs of your business. If you have concerns over how you're going to hang the banner, opt for a design that incorporates grommets. Grommets make it a breeze to hang your banner within minutes using zip ties or nylon ropes and they provide additional protection to the banner. Should you need to frequently re-hang your banner, the grommets will help keep the material around your hanging site from wearing thin. You should also decide if you want your banner reinforced. When you have your banner reinforced, an additional layer is incorporated into the design, giving it extra strength and durability.

4. Your Preferred Location for Hanging the Banner

Decide if you want to hang the banner in outside locales, interior locations, or a combination of the two. If you plan to primarily use the banner outside, make sure that you select a vinyl banner specifically intended for outside use. These banners typically use some type of waterproof vinyl in order to add longevity to the banner. This will ensure that your banner looks its best even after repeated exposure to the elements.
