Banners come in an array of sizes (and sometimes even shapes), and they’re perfect for promoting a product or service, launching or introducing a new product or service, or telling customers about what your business has to offer. Banners, especially roller banners, pop up banners, and display stands, have long been effective especially when used in exhibitions, trade shows, market fairs, and so on. But if you would like to make use of a banner outdoors, there are some aspects you need to consider so you can make the right choice. Here’s what to consider when choosing to display your banner outdoors.
Where to use your outdoor banner
The great thing about outdoor banners is that they are specially-made and designed to be stronger and more durable than banners which are just made for indoor use. So you can basically hang them anywhere – at fairs and bazaars, weekend markets, sports events, open days, school events, and more. Of course, you can always choose to display your ‘outdoor’ banner ‘indoors’ as well. They are immensely versatile, so wherever you decide to use them, they’ll be sure to fulfill their purpose.
Freestanding or hanging?
When it comes to outdoor banners, you have a few choices on how to display them. The traditional way is to hang them on fences or walls with the use of eyelets. But nowadays, you can also choose a stand to go with your outdoor banner so it can stand on its own (perfect for street corners, at outdoor events, and so on). Once you have chosen the best way in which to hang or place your outdoor banner, then you can choose the actual type of banner you need.
The size of the banner also matters, and this will greatly depend on where it will be placed. If you are thinking of using the banner at a market fair or small outdoor event, then it needn’t be such a big size. You can simply opt for a standard size of 2 feet by 4 feet, or, if you want it a little bit bigger, you can also opt for 2 feet by 6 feet, 3 feet by 6 feet, and so on. The biggest size for a standard outdoor banner you can order is often 8 feet by 20 feet. If you would like to have your banner placed at a big road or motorway, then the bigger it is, the better.
You also have some other options in regards to outdoor banner printing. Some banner printing services offer heavy-weight outdoor banners with around 550gsm banner material, which are ideal for long-term use outdoors and are fully-weatherproof as well. Your other options include mesh PVC banners (great for withstanding extremely windy conditions) and even environmentally-friendly, biodegradable PVC banners.
