Banners: An Important and Versatile Marketing Tool

While many businesses have a large online advertising budget, they tend to forget how effective offline advertising can be, especially with banners.

Custom printed banners have been around for decades and are used to send a message to a large group of people. Both businesses and organizations alike will use a banner to display their message or advertise their products or services. There is no better or cost-effective way to get your message out to your desired audience. A hanging banner in an outdoor venue can be seen by thousands of people every hour. The amount of traffic and sales it can drive pales in comparison with the relatively low cost of custom banner design and printing services. Banner production has also taken a great leap forward over the years. State-of-the-art digital printers, like the one AlphaGraphics in New Bern uses, allow for banners to be printed in some of the most vivid and eye-catching colors, graphics and pictures imaginable. These large format printers can handle any size banner or poster.

New Bern Banner PrintingBanner Roll-Ups

Banner roll-ups are great for trade shows and corporate or educational presentations. They are lightweight and can be easily set up by one person. After the presentation or trade show is over, they roll up neatly and can be stored for extended periods of time. Due to the materials and inks used, they will not fade if stored properly.

Standard Vinyl Banners

These are your traditional hanging banners. They are made out of a high-quality, waterproof vinyl material which is designed to stand up to the outdoor elements. The banners can be UV coated to withstand the harsh rays of the sun over long periods of time. The colors won’t fade even if they’re exposed to the sun and elements.

Vinyl Mesh Banners

If the banner is to be hung in a windy area, vinyl mesh banners are a great option. The mesh material has tiny little holes in it, which allows the wind to pass right through it. There’s nothing more frustrating than to have a gust of wind catch a vinyl banner and twist it out of shape so it can’t be read properly. Mesh vinyl banners will prevent this from happening.

Pop Up Banners

Pop up banners are great for trade shows and conventions. They are lightweight and easily portable. Their sturdy skeleton makes for easy setup and take down. These stretch fabric displays offer affordability and convenience all rolled into one easy to move package.

Hanging Options

There are many hanging options for banners that will suit any scenario. Pole pockets and poles can be used to hold the banner up, or metal grommets can be placed in all four corners so that it can be hung by rope or string. Teardrop banners are also another popular option – they are lightweight and designed to attract attention. They can be easily mounted in the dirt or ground and will stand up to the strongest of breezes if mounted properly. They are designed to move and wave in the wind, and the ensuing movement attracts people’s attention.
