Outdoor Banners – not just for Christmas

Outdoor Banners – not just for Christmas

21st Dec 2017

It may be cold outside however it is still the season of good cheer! Even once Christmas is over, shoppers will be looking for the perfect gift and planning for events of the year ahead. Footfall is king and banners will help you stand-out in the crowds.

Catch the eye of passers-by; make your signage clean, clear and securely fixed. Any welcome signs need to make the right impression. Event banners need careful consideration too. To be clearly visible from the road, word-counts need to be kept low and designs clear. And windy winter months mean safely secured banners are a must. Keep your Call To Action where you want it!

Outdoor advertising is easy with our outdoor PVC banners. From as little as £17 and available in a range of sizes, our high-quality PVC banners are printed in high resolution full-colour using a heavy weight 520gsm PVC banner material. Our heavy weight 520gsm banner material is a higher quality material than many of the cheap outdoor banners available online. Making it more robust and able to withstand the harsh British weather.

Think Big!

Size is not a problem for us. Think Big! We offer a range of different banner sizes online, but we have the capability to supply printed banners in any size up to 2.4m in width. If you cannot find the size you are after online, please contact us and we will be happy to advise on custom sized banners.

Thoughtful Design

When thinking about your design make sure that your logo is large and clear and next to your core message. Both should be readable and seen from a distance. Eye level information generally works best. Think left to right, we all read top to bottom and left to right therefore keep this in mind when planning your design and the order of your overall message. Give consideration to how your outdoor PVC banner is going to be fixed or hung. You don’t want to detract from the appearance of your promotion.

Only include the most important headline information, keep text to a minimum and don’t forget to signpost your website, social and contact.

If you would like to include images they should be 300 dpi, or greater and saved as CMYK. It’s temping to search the internet for suitable images. If you do, make sure the images can legally be re-used and whether an attribution should be provided.

Option 1: Use our handy artwork guide or template to design your own.

Option 2: Leave it all to our expert design service from as little as £15 plus VAT.

The art of hanging the perfect banner

Outdoor PVC banners are easy to hang. Printed with outdoor UV inks our banners are suitable to be used outdoors in all weathers. Our banners are all hemmed and with eyelets added ready to be hung on fences, buildings, railings, or anywhere you need your message to be displayed. Piece of cake!

But don’t take our word for it. Read our blog How to hang an Outdoor Banner – your guide with pictures and try it for yourself.

Not just for Christmas

Not only suitable for the winter months, outdoor banners can also be used year-round to promote your business or a personal event, like a wedding, birthday or engagement. Printed with UV inks makes them fade resistant and long lasting. Outdoor banners make a cost effective sign solution that can be used and re-used for advertising, events and development sites. So dust of your old banners currently taking up valuable cupboard space, check for any damage and that the designs are still crisp and up-to-date. If they are tatty or in need of a refresh, give us a call. We’ll help you get organised for 2018.
