Great. Big. Outdoor Banners.
What are Outdoor Banners?
Any banners found outdoors fall into the outdoor banners category. This includes pole banners often found on downtown streets; large format banners found on billboards or the side of a building; and standard sized banners hanging on storefronts and fences. We typically make our banners using 13 oz or mesh material.
Why Invest in Outdoor Banners?
Draw In Customers
Outdoor banners fulfill many different purposes, but the overall purpose is to draw customers to your brand. For instance, pole banners at a university may advertise an upcoming event, or even wayfind for a current event. Billboard banners fullfill the obvious task of advertising your business to highway traffic. Other roadside banners or hanging banners often display upcoming events or new promotions.
Improve Brand Recognition
Outdoor banners touch many customers and potential customers throughout the day, no matter what size you choose. Your banner will be a non-stop marketing agent for your company, constantly promoting your brand to anyone who will look. Our custom printing process allows you to customize the entire design with elements such as your brand logos, fonts, colors and images. Since we quote based on the square footage, banners are a relatively inexpensive way to draw in new and existing customers.
Outdoor banners can be hung from many surfaces and in many ways. For instance, you can opt for pole pockets to slide onto existing poles or choose grommets for hanging. You can use anything from zip ties, wire, hooks, etc. for hanging banners grommets.
Banners intended for outdoor use are most commonly made from perforated mesh or scrim. Vinyl mesh is perforated, so it allows wind to pass through with ease and will not billow excessively in windy conditions. In addition to being wind-resistant, vinyl mesh is a very aesthetically pleasing material to place graphics upon and holds up against rain, snow and ice. Scrim banners have an extra woven layer that allow gives them an extra sturdiness. While they also hold up well against the elements, a windy day will cause the banner to blow up like a sail unless you choose to slice wind slits in the material.
The SpeedPro Banner Process
We follow a tried and true process to make sure you get the most out of your SpeedPro Greenville experience.
Understanding Your Vision
First, we talk with you and gather information about your business, your brand and your vision for the banner. We’ll ask questions relating to size, placement, design, and installation. For instance, do you need a banner with pole pockets to hang on light posts, or are you looking for something that will hang flush to the side of your building. Questions like these allow us to better understand the scope of your project.
Project Proofing & Estimating
If you’re able to give us approximate sizing and material, we’re able to provide an estimate. Even if the original idea changes, we’re able to give you a ballpark to tell you what you may be looking at. We’ll provide a proof once you’ve provided artwork. The mockup process gives you an idea of what the finished product will look like, and this is the time to make any sizing or proofreading adjustments.
When you’re happy with the way your design looks on the proof, we’ll give you a final quote.
Production, Installation, Completion
After you give the green light, we begin production and schedule the installation. Banner production includes printing, hemming, and grommeting. Soon enough, your new banner is completed and drawing in customers!
