Exact sizes of banners cannot be guaranteed. Vinyl is a temperature sensitive material, and some fluctuation can occur due to heat application in printing, finishing, and outside climate. Please note our acceptable size variance is up to 1/2 inch per linear foot (ex. A 5 ft banner could finish with a 2.5 inch variance). If your banner size needs to be precise, please ask your Customer Service Representative to discuss your specific application.
If you select "Pick a Template" or "Upload a File," you will be taken into the online designer where you can add a background image, upload clip art images, add text, and upload your own graphics. If you want us to design the artwork, choose "Let Us Design" and a pop-up window will appear where you can upload any logos or images and provide special instructions.
For complete guidelines, please visit the artwork specifications page.
Files that print best are .eps or .ai (in version CS5 or lower) converted to outline. We can also print high resolution .pdf, .tif, and .jpg formats. Typically 300 dpi or higher is suitable for banners.
We print in four color CMYK or six color CMYK, LC, LM. Please keep this in mind when submitting files for printing as color tone shifting may happen if file is submitted in RGB format. If there is a specific PMS color you need, please specify that to us when submitting your order so we can help you verify that the proper color mix is used (vector artwork only).
Customer supplied files are printed as submitted, so we cannot guarantee color, clarity or final output since we are printing only the supplied files and have not set them up for printing.
All of our printers are calibrated daily to ICC coloring profile standards to ensure accurate color production.
During the checkout process you can choose to have your artwork go straight into production after payment is received* or have an artwork proof emailed to you. The proof will include a low resolution image of your artwork, a summary of your order, pricing information, and your billing and shipping information. If you select an additional proof, you will have to email or call the customer service representative back with approval before your order will go into production.
*We review all artwork before putting it into production. If we notice that the quality of your artwork is too low for production, we will email you even if you didn't select the additional artwork proof.
Vinyl Banner Finishing Options
Standard vinyl banners include heat welded hems and grommets every 2-4 feet around the banner perimeter. Other finishing options include:
- Cut to size - no hems or grommets
- 2" pole pockets
- 3" pole pockets
- Reinforced corners
- Reinforced hems
Pole pockets can be on the top, bottom, right and left sides. If you select pole pockets, you cannot have reinforced hems or reinforced corners on the banner.
This item can be produced in both our Minnesota and Las Vegas facilities, allowing us to better your experience by choosing an optimal production location based on your order's destination and specifications.
All standard banners are rolled, bagged, and placed into a shipping box which is then shipped via UPS. If you need an alternate shipping method, please specify when you place your order, otherwise you will receive your order via UPS Ground. We offer a 1-3 day ground shipment to 90% of the United States. If you have any questions about shipping, please contact Customer Service at (320) 965-9200 prior to ordering.
See our complete shipping policy for more information.
Standard vinyl banners include hems and grommets for easy installation. We have ball bungees and hanging clips available to order with your banner.
How to Hang a Banner
When you hang your banner, you should use all of the grommets provided. If you only use a portion of the grommets, the banner may have undue stress which can lead to the grommets getting torn out. You can use bungee cords, hanging clips, zip ties or ropes to hang your banner on buildings or between poles.
If you are going to hang your banner over a street, we recommend contacting your local DOT for the street banner hanging requirements. We will work with you to make sure that you banner meets all of the requirements if you let us know in advance.
Vinyl Banner Care
If you need to clean your banner, use a non-abrasive cloth and avoid using detergents or other cleaners as they may deteriorate the print. When you are done, make sure the banner is dry before storing.
Storing your Vinyl Banner
We recommend keeping the shipping box for storing your banner. You can roll the banner up and put it back into the box we provided. Store the banner in a cool, dry room when it's not in use.
