You want your banner to be visually striking and easy to read. Below are some tips to help you maximize the impact of your signage.
- To ensure your message is legible from a distance, add 1” of text height for every 10’ of viewable distance
- So if your “Grand Opening” sign needs to be read by passersby on a road 60’ away, select letters that are at least 6” tall
- Consider shortening your message and increasing text size if drivers are traveling at a high rate of speed
- When selecting colors for your banner text and background, you can increase readability by choosing a high-contrast combination; like black text on color, or color text on white
OUR PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTION AND FINISHING OPTIONS:
- Black and white or full-color printing on advanced digital equipment
- Assorted printing sizes

Beth Williams is very helpful and a real pleasure to work with! Everyone is friendly and courteous. Response is quick. The quality of the printing and products is excellent. I am extremely happy to have found CommercialPrinting/AlphaGraphics!
Commercial Printing was timely and professional for all of my design needs. They are truly a one-stop-shop. They designed my logo and were willing to work with me until I was satisfied. I own a small business, so I am still trying to get my name out there. Commercial Printing recommended magnetic decals for my vehicle. When I decided to purchase them, Commercial Printing had the custom printed magnetic decals back to me a week later. The service and attention to detail was phenomenal!
I've worked closely with Alpha graphics for over a year now and the service is always stellar.
I was a walk-in to the office for an important, but last minute job. Was introduced to Chris Andrews. He was very attentive and accommodating. The job was well done and ahead of time. Very happy with the service.
AWESOME banner. AWESOME pricing. AWESOME service. I could not have asked for more! Thank you for making my order so easy and convenient!!!
I enjoyed working with Mike and look forward to doing business with you all for many years to come!
I've only directly worked with Kimberly and she's been amazing. When I have questions she helps as much as she can and as quickly as she can! I've printed Christmas cards and our business cards with alphagraphics and have been very impressed with the quality of the prints.
Customer service and the quality of our final product at this location was excellent!
Very professional and great turn around time on order. Thanks too Daniel and Kimberly
Kimberly was especially wonderful with her great communication and customer service.
Commercial Printing and Alphagraphics makes my work life easier. I've never worried about quality or service and couldn't possibly say a bad thing about they way they do business.
We have been extremely pleased with the service and product! They have been a breath of fresh air in working with us and helping meet tight deadlines when necessary.
Commercial Printing has printed our invoices for years. When we realized a couple weeks ago we were somehow completely out of invoices and had not yet re-ordered, Mike Linden was extremely helpful with getting them proofed and printed almost immediately. Great service!
It was a pleasure dealing with the company and staff. An easy process and we got the perfect end result.
The team has gone above and beyond with every project so the finished products were exactly what I wanted, and wouldn't have been the case without their help. What started as a printing only project ended up needing creative design work as well.
Alphagraphics far exceeded our expectations. We had multiple issues with the vendor we were currently using and we needed a quick change. We received excellent customer service from Alphagraphics (Chris Andrews), and speedy delivery of our order as well. Overall, we are very impressed and look forward to continuing our business with them.
It was helpful having a direct contact within the company to ask any questions that came to mind.
Exemplary service! This is why I continue to use Commercial Printing year after year. Thanks for all you do!

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT MATERIAL TYPES OF BANNERS?
At AlphaGraphics, we offer a wide variety of materials for banner printing. Every project is a custom project so you have the ability to choose the right material for your projects. The majority of our banners are printed on 13 oz. opaque vinyl that is great for both outdoor and indoor applications. Our quality vinyl look is available in both gloss and matte finishes and can be finished with hems, grommets, rope inserts, pole pockets and more! We also offer heavier materials for special applications and our team will help you choose the right material for each application.
DO YOU OFFER FULL-BLEEDS ON CUSTOM BANNERS?
Yes, we can print a full-bleed graphic on all of the banner orders. You may hear designers and people within the graphics industry talk about “full bleed” on artwork. This means that the color, image or graphic extends to the very edge of the material you’re printing on. In order to achieve a full-bleed, we print your graphic oversized and trim it down to size, which provides a beautiful graphic that looks professionally designed and printed. Our customer service team is ready to help answer any questions you may have regarding color bleeds, graphic design or our production process.
WHAT IS A BANNER WIND SLIT AND DO I NEED ONE?
Depending on the application of the banner, you may need wind slits. For a temporary banner or a banner that is placed in a covered location, wind slits may not be necessary. However, if you are installing a banner in an area that may be exposed to wind or higher off the ground, wind slits are recommended. Wind slits are small “U” shaped cutouts on the banner that allows wind to pass through the banner, which can help with stability in windy locations. Wind slits are mainly used for pole banners and other banners hung high off the ground, but we can add them to any banner during production or after it’s printed.
HOW MANY COLORS CAN I PRINT ON A BANNER?
For our banners, we print using digital technology that allows you to use an unlimited about of colors on your banner. In our industry, it’s called full-color printing, which allows you to print pictures, logos, text and any other design elements you want on the banner. Whether you are looking for a simple one-color banner or a very colorful banner, you have plenty of options when it comes to making a big impact with your banner.
CAN I ORDER A DOUBLE-SIDED BANNER?
Absolutely! We offer single-sided and double-sided banner printing. Double-sided banners are great for locations where you’d like advertise from two different directions. Combining double-sided printing with our quality vinyl allows us to deliver double the marketing impact.
HOW DO I INSTALL OR HANG A BANNER?
There are a variety of ways to install banners. Every banner we print is furnished with grommets that are placed every 24” along all four sides of the banner. This allows you to tie down the banners no matter where you are hanging or mounting the banner. You can build a frame, mount to a fence, use metal or wood posts or even attach to a building. It’s common to see people use rope or bungee cords, which are very effective. Our team can also install pole pockets which make it easy to hold a banner in a parade or hang from a ceiling. Just let us know how you will be using the banner and our customer service team will help pick the right finishing method for mounting or installing your banner.
CAN I USE MY BANNER OUTDOORS?
All our banners are printed using inks that are suitable for indoor or outdoors. They are designed not to fade and will last as long as you take care of them. The main element you want to consider when using a banner outdoors is the material. Paper is common for indoor banners while durable vinyl is common for outdoor use. Our quality vinyl holds up in wind, rain, snow, sun and all different types of weather elements.
DO YOU OFFER GRAPHIC DESIGN SERVICES FOR BANNERS?
We have a team of graphic designers ready to help with any banner project. Our designers work with our clients every day to pick colors, fonts, sizes, logos, pictures and finishing options. We offer digital proofs of each design prior to printing so you know exactly what your banner will look like. Once the banner is designed, you can rest assured that it will be setup correctly for printing and delivery in a timely manner.
HOW DO I OBTAIN MY BANNER ONCE IT'S PRINTED?
We offer a variety of ways to deliver your banner project. You are welcome to pick-up your banner at our Raleigh print shop or we can ship it to you or the location of your choice. For businesses, we also offer delivery and courier services within the Raleigh-Triangle area. We ship via UPS every day so if you want a project to go directly to a tradeshow, work conference or a business event, we can handle that as well. At the end of the day, we’re flexible and will work with you to get the banner to where it needs to go!
CAN I PROVIDE MY OWN DESIGN FILES?
You are always welcome to provide your own print-ready files. We are happy to help provide artwork instructions as it pertains to file types, bleeds, layouts, etc. Our goal is to make your experience easy so give us a call and we’ll let you know how we need files supplied. If a file is too large to email, you can always send a file through our website.
WHAT IS THE TURNAROUND TIME FOR BANNERS?
Our standard turnaround time is 2-3 days for banners after artwork is approved, but it always depends on the scope of the project. Many factors can affect the lead time like the design process, proof process, quantity, material type and complexity of the finishing. We work a wide variety of clients every day to meet specific deadlines so we always encourage clients to contact us about tight timelines and we will work with you to deliver on schedule.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY BANNER?
The beauty of banners is that they are pretty low maintenance. Using common sense for caring for your vinyl banner goes a long way. We recommend mounting outdoor banners in a safe location that is protected from the elements, when possible. Mild soap and detergents are always recommended over harsh chemicals or heavy cleaners. When storing your banner, we recommend rolling the banner rather than folding so the banners don’t crease. As always, we are happy to answer specific questions about the care of your new banner.
