How to Create an Amazing Banner


Utilizing a vinyl banner may be a great way to advertise, but you need the right design to do so!

We’ve mentioned before that banners are some of the most effective, cost-efficient ways of promoting an event or business. That said, it isn’t always easy to make one that catches the eye. Coming up with a good banner is a design choice and there’s a reason design is so difficult. You can’t just think about what you like, but what the public as a whole would like, which means keeping a few design ideas in mind. If you want to create the perfect banner for your business, read on below to discover just how you can do that.

Simplicity is Key

The worst thing you can do is make your banner overly complex. The reality is that consumers don’t have the biggest attention span, especially not when there are so many other advertisers out there vying for their attention. Your target audience is going to read your banner while walking or driving by, so the message needs to be quick and easy to understand. Boil down the sentiment to as few words as possible, then edit it again, and again, until you’re sure that it’s right.

Text Size Matters

Banner signs are also often read at a distance, so it’s critical that your text is large enough to be read by passerbys. How do you go about determining that? The rule of thumb is typically that for every ten feet of viewing distance, the height of your letters should be at least one inch. If your banner is 40 feet from the street, the height of your letters must at least be 4 inches.

Utilize Images

Pictures and graphics are a great way to catch the attention of your audience, but there are a few caveats. For one, you need to make sure that your images are related to what your business and brand is. It must be engaging and fit in with the general aesthetic your company has already developed. It should also be able to be seen clearly from across the street.
