Think Big with Outdoor Banner Displays.  Minneapolis is host to so many great events, both outdoor and indoors.  Whether you are attending the Minneapolis Farmers Market, the Uptown Art Fair or the Home & Garden Show, what is likely to draw your attention to a booth or location is a bright, bold banner.  Next time you are walking down a street or at an event, notice how banners capture your eye.  Banners are a great way to draw in customers or advertise an upcoming event.  And, because they can be made with a variety of materials and formats, their versatility makes them a desirable and cost effective option for businesses wanting to get notic


Think a banner would be great but not sure what your options are?  No problem! We offer a large selection of banners ranging in size and materials.  Give us a call and one of our expert print technicians will help you find the right material, finish and mounting option for both your intended use and your available space. 

Whether for a booth or for outside a store, there are many details we take into consideration.  Factors such as weather (we do live in Minnesota after all!), length of use and the space in which you intend to display the banner are all important considerations.  For example, while a sturdy, rigid sign might be perfect for a long-term post outside a store, you will need a light, portable banner for use at an event booth where ease of transport is a critical factor.  At Alphagraphics Minneapolis, we’ll help you find the best and most economical banner option suited for your application.


Another important factor when choosing the right outdoor banner is readability and the manner in which your message will be viewed.  If your banner needs to grab the attention of passersby from a distance, a good rule of thumb to follow is 1” of text height for every 10’ of viewable distance.  For example, if your banner needs to capture attention from 100’ away, then a text height of 10” is recommended.   

Color and contrast are also critical design decisions.  Bright bold colors are proven to draw a customer’s eye and increase engagement.  Contrast is also a big factor for creating an engaging sign. For example, consider a white font against a dark background, or the opposite, a dark color against a very light background.  Pairing too similar of colors can decrease a banner’s readability.


Alphagraphics Minneapolis is a locally owned business, conveniently located in the downtown Minneapolis skyway.  This means whatever your signage needs, we’ll be familiar with the location or the event and will be able to get the job done fast.  No shipping and no speaking with someone located in another city who doesn’t understand where Nicollet Avenue is or how to best catch the attention of potential customers at Art-a-Whirl. 

At our commercial print center in Minneapolis, we are known for quality, speed and service.  Whether your needs are for an attention grabbing outdoor or indoor banner, vibrant event posters, show-stopping wall graphics or a host of other print services, we are here to provide expert guidance from design to production.  Contact us and let’s get your business noticed.


Our Minneapolis commercial print center offers custom outdoor banner design and printing services in Minneapolis and the west metro, including Plymouth, Minnetonka, Golden Valley, St. Louis Park and Edina.
