Garden Banner
Signs, Banners, and Posters

You've got the pictures and the words – but do you have a way to get it big enough for everyone to see across the room, or across the street? AlphaGraphics in Wood Dale can help you with everything from posters, to banners and permanent signs, to help you get your words seen. Whether you are having a one-time event, or opening a new location, bigger is often better when trying to attract attention. You want to make sure your message is large enough for your target audience to read in the time it takes to pass by your business or event. Are you trying to decide what would work best? A Banner? A Poster? A Sign? AlphaGraphics in Wood Dale is your one-stop print solution so you don’t have to decide what works best for you. Our professional staff can help determine which sign options are best for you.

Sign, Banner and Poster Considerations

Here are some things to consider in helping weigh your options:

  • Durability: How rugged does it need to be? Posters are great for one shot postings, but won't stand up to much abuse.  If you need to use it again and again, take a look at our sign and banner options.
  • Inside or Out? Is it going to be outdoors, in the wind and rain, or inside protected from sun? Some types of banners are better indoors.  A stand up banner is great indoors - it's easy to pop up and down, and stow away when you aren't using it. However, this isn’t the best option outdoors in the wind.
  • Longevity: If you want it up for a long time, make sure it's made of a material that can stand up to the test of time. Depending on location, a vinyl banner could be enough.  If it's going to be handled a lot - taken up and down, you might be better off ordering a coroplast sign? If you are going to put it up and keep it up forever - give us a call and we'll help you with your permanent signage options.
  • Flexibility: If you are trying to decide between a banner or poster for an event that happens annually, a digitally printed vinyl banner is a great choice.
  • Quantity: How many will you want? - For a one-time event, where you need to advertise all around the block in a variety of spaces, posters could be the perfect choice.
  • Size: What size are you looking for?  If you are looking for BIG - banners and signs are the way to go. Let us know what you need and we'll work with you.
  • Budget: If you have cost constraints, ask us how we can save you money. You might choose to remove date/time data so your banners can be used over again for future events.
  • Temporary or Permanent Signage: Do you want it to be free standing?  Moveable?  Or permanent? Our light weight coroplast signs are durable, easy to move, and good indoors and out. If you need something permanent, we have more material options including aluminum and acrylic available - we'll happily provide you a customized quote.
