Deciding what to do with a custom design for your company is often times challenging. There are so many things to keep in mind when creating a custom design that often times something gets missed. The first tip to designing a custom banner is to make a list of all the things you want to accomplish. After you have it all down and have reviewed it, start putting things into motion. You list should include the items below, in detail, before you begin.
Decide on Your Color Scheme
What colors do you want to use in your custom banner designs? The rule of thumb is to always stick with only two of three colors. This ensures that your banner design stays professional looking as well as consistent. Providing a consistent experience when a potential customer or client is reading your banner will make sure the message is delivered clearly. After all, this is what a business is targeting when they use a vinyl banner.
Use colors such as blue, red, royal purple and other regal colors to create a professional and sophisticated edge to your banner design. For light hearted designs, try bold colors such as reds, oranges, yellows and sometimes even a shade of a bold pink color if used in the right amounts to highlight. Be careful though, “fun” vinyl banners tend to get out of hand when being created. Keep in mind the ultimate goal is to communicate a message; if a design is too busy with multi-color swirls and other distractions, your message will get lost. There is a fine line with eye-catching and overdone.
Pay Attention to Size Limits
Do pay attention to size limits of your banner. Make sure that when your banner is hemmed, it will not interfere with the message you are getting across or any other important area of your banner. This is your responsibility if you are providing the custom design. Another thing to keep in mind is the grommet hole placement. In order to hang a banner, grommets need to be put in place where the rope can be fed through. Be sure no important information will get removed when the grommets are put in place.
Location of Banner
Make sure you have a spot for your vinyl banner before you create it. This will help you determine which size you will need. Sometimes businesses buy a huge vinyl banner only to find out they do not have anywhere to put it. If your business can support a huge vinyl banner, great! If it is at a smaller retail location and cannot, opt for a smaller scale vinyl banner; do not worry, it will still be seen!
Look at Standard Vinyl Banner Options and Mesh Vinyl Banner Options
Consider what type of weather you have. The banners come in two main forms- the standard and the mesh vinyl. The mesh vinyl banner is designed for windy areas. Although the standard vinyl banner holds up physically in wind, it has a tendency to fold up on itself. The mesh vinyl allows the wind to pass through, thereby keeping the banner in the fully visible position. Keeping all of these items in mind, a business can be successful at creating a custom banner that fits their needs perfectly.
