Text Banners Can Deliver a Strong Message.

In previous blogs, we discussed how full color banners are used in the marketing plan of a business.  Text banners can be part of that same effective marketing plan.  The messages are both the same, deliver information the  consumer.

Text banners are very similar to full color banners but they are made only with text, rather than in design.  Each method has a place in a businesses  advertising plan.  A text banner is a banner that is generally printed on a vinyl banner material and only contains text. That text can be in the form of letters or numbers arranged to deliver a clear and concise message.

A text banner that displays the word ” HOT DOG ” and a price of $2.00 is considered a an example of text banners.  The message is clear and concise that the price of a hot dog is $2.00 and they can be found at the location where the banner is hanging.  These types of text banners are great when a strong simple message needs to be delivered.  A carnival or fair is a example where this type of banner could be very successful.  After all, would a multi color design with artwork really be able to deliver a more descriptive message than just a hot dog  for $2.00 ?

Another rpime example of  text banners is a car lot in which you see the banner ” BUY HERE- PAY HERE “ . There is no ambiguity in the message that the vinyl banner is sending, you are able to buy your car at that location and they act as a financial institution and collect your car payments there.

Text banners can be simply made with banner material that has vinyl lettering applied to it or have a large format printer print the tex on the banner material.  Either method will allow for a banner that lasts for a long time.

Full Color Banners For Your Las Vegas Business

Banners are a great way to advertise your business in Las Vegas.  There are many types of banners to choose from.  There are mesh banners, sports banners, hemmed banners, etc.  One of the most, if not the most popular banner is the full color banner.

A full color banner is a banner in which you are allowed to use as many colors as you want.  This sounds simple, but in the old days, you could not get a full color banner without paying an exorbitant amount of money to obtain one.  The reason for this is because not so long ago, there were only vinyl plotters that you would cut your vinyl on and then apply that vinyl to the banner material.  This method  was very time consuming and labor intensive.  Thus, the additional labor and work was found in the price of the vinyl banner.

In todays print shops, businesses are using large format printers and printing directly on the banner material with eco solvent or latex inks.  These inks allow for a long lasting banner that can withstand the elements of nature when exposed to the harsh sun.  The sun, as you may be aware of, shines quite bright and hot in the summer months in Las Vegas.

The printing of these full color banners is now made easy with technology.  It is nothing to be able to print a high quality full color banner in about 15minutes with the use of software programs like flexi sign, onyx and others.  These software programs direct the printers to mix colors and create a wonderful vibrant images on banners. This is why they are called full color banners.

Statistics show that full color banners are more attractive to consumers than black and white banners.

Full color banners are easy to make and easy to display and have been proven to increase business sales.

Mesh Banners

Mesh Banners are great for outdoor advertising.  They are much more wind resistant than the traditional banner which cannot withstand the forces of Mother Nature for extended periods of time. Mesh banners are made for outdoor use.

Mesh banner are very similar to regular vinyl banners, but they are special in the fact that they have tiny slits in the vinyl material that allows for air to go thru them.  Regular vinyl banners  are printed on a 13 ounce banner material that has no slits and this causes a tremendous amount of force on the banner when wind is blowing against it.  The regular banner has grommets on the outside of the banner and when the wind blows against the banner, whatever rope or securing device that is used to secure the banner is subject to tearing the grommets out.

With mesh banners, the wind is allowed to pass thru the banner, thus relieving the stress on the grommets and extending the lifer of the banner.  Usually, mesh banners are more expensive, but have a longer life expectancy in the outdoors.

Mesh banners are printed on the same way that a regular vinyl banner is printed on.  When going thru the large format printers, the mesh banner will have a backing on it that is peeled away after a banner is printed.  This is very similar to the printing technique used in printing window vision.

The mesh banners are great for outdoor barbecues and sporting events where there is much wind.  Another place to see mesh banners is at the beach, where there is traditionally a lot of wind due to the ocean wind patterns.

If you are in the market for a long lasting banner, you might want to consider having the banner made out of mesh material.  It will last longer and the extra money is well spent.

Outdoor banners can be made in a variety of ways.  They can have wind slits cut into them to allow for the passage of wind, grommets punched into them for easy hanging, or have pockets sewed into them so that you can put a pole in the pockets to help display the outdoor banners.  Outdoor banners can also be hemmed to reinforce the outer edges so that they withstand greater force of nature.  The usual method for hemming the banners is with double sided tape or being sewn.

Outdoor banners can deliver a variety of messages such as advertising a company picnic, a sporting event, a rock concert, etc. etc.  The whole idea of the outdoor banner is to have people be able too see it and advertise whatever  message you are trying to convey.

Common outdoor banners include the sizes of 3 foot by 8foot, 3foot by 5 foot and larger sizes such as 5feet by 10 feet.  In LAs Vegas, where I live, casinos have banners running down the sides of the casinos to advertise their shows and specials.  These banners run several hundred feet in length. The banners can be joined together to make it look very wide as well as long.
