The use of outdoor banners is a great way for businesses to broadcast messages outside to passersby. Outdoor banners can be promotional (such as “Clearance Sale”), informational (such as “Construction Zone”), or instructional (such as “Caution Ahead”). Businesses mainly use outdoor banners with promotional messages, in order to obtain customers.


Outdoor banners can be used outside of brick-and-mortar stores and restaurants, for example: banners that say “Grand Opening”.  They can also be used at outdoor markets, for example: banners that say “Organic Tomatoes” at farmer’s markets. Outdoor banners can also be used at sporting events, for example: rally banners that say “GO GIANTS!” at a San Francisco Giants Game.


Outdoor banners need to be durable enough to withstand the outside elements, such as wind, rain, sunlight, etc. They also need to be attractive and easy-to read. Thus, below are things to consider when designing outdoor banners. However, the graphic design and marketing experts at AlphaGraphics in downtown San Francisco can also design outdoor banners for you.


Banner Material: Outdoor banners can be printed on vinyl, mesh, or heavy-duty fabric. Mesh banners are the most durable because they are heat, abrasion, water, and fade resistant. Vinyl banners are more attractive than mesh banners, but not quite as durable. Heavy-duty fabric banners are the least durable.


Font Type: The type of font used on banners should be legible. Letters of scrolling font types, such as Monotype Corsiva, are much harder to distinguish than those of plainer font types, such as Arial. Also, letters of bolder font types, such as Verdana, are more distinguishable than those of thinner font types, such as Courier New.


Font Size: The text on banners should be large enough to be seen from great distances. Thus, it’s best to use the largest font size possible on banners.


Banner Copy: It’s best for banners to have concise messages on only one line. This will allow the font size to be bigger.


Banner Colors: Banners should be eye-catching. Thus, they should have bright and bold colors. Also, the font color should highly contrast against the background color. This will make the text more distinguishable. For example, black font against a yellow background will stand out more than black font against a blue background.
