How to Deisgn a Vinyl Banner For Your Business!

Businesses use vinyl banners to communicate messages such as grand openings, sales events, new product announcements and similar promotions-oriented messages. Because vinyl banners can be hung up on grommets, the circular metal holes in the body of the banner, they can also be taken down with relative ease. The ability to add and remove vinyl banners without the need for extensive construction makes them well-suited to convey limited-time messages. Although you will ultimately need to work with a printing professional (such as PrintSavage.com) to get your banner produced, you can do much of the preparation required to design a vinyl banner on your own.

 

Instructions

    • 1

      Choose the message. The text for a vinyl banner should convey your marketing message, and the message should be short. A message such as “Now Open,” “Halloween Specials,” “50% Off All Lamps,” or similarly short messages that suit your purpose is your target. Limit text to six words.

      Choose the contact information. Depending on the nature of your business and the intended location of your banner, you may want to include your business’s street address, web address or phone number. For example, if the banner will be hung outside your business, you can skip the street address and go with a phone number. Choose only one.

      Choose the colors. Vinyl banners are not the place for subtle design; choose bold colors rather than pale ones, and choose primary colors over pastels. Colors printed on vinyl should be solids; stripes, checkers and other intricate color combinations may not print well on vinyl.

      Choose the layout. Vinyl banners can be printed in a variety of shapes and sizes; the layout for your text and graphics will depend on the shape of the banner you want. The National Business Association points out the type of software used to produce vinyl banners is often more complex than consumer-oriented software applications such as Microsoft Word. For this reason, it can be helpful to hire a professional designer to finalize the layout after you have all the information for the banner assembled.

Why do you need business cards?

Why is it so important to have a business card?
The business card is your/your company’s face for the client, the way that they will (or not) remember you. Besides its main function (provide contact info) the business card should be a quick representation of what you do in a memorable and creative way. It can add status and value to your work, making your service be noticed for its quality. Give a good card and people will be impressed, keep it, and remember you when they need your services. Always take your business cards with you, we never know when we’re going to meet a potential client.

Important communication aspects

As its main function is giving your contact info, they should be up to date. May seem simple, but be sure that people will find you with those informations. It’s also important to have a web site to show your services/products if it’s possible, like an online portfolio. Do not forget to say exactly what you do, people must see your profession and services, because they may not remember you but they have the card to tell them.

That is a lot to handle, why add even more advertising costs and stress on top of all that? We at PrintSavage have put a lot of thought into that, which is why we started our online print shop.When it comes to launching a business, the most common difficult aspect to handle is advertising your company and getting noticed. What types of advertising works the best? How do I target my potential customers? Where do I buy all my advertising supplies? How much is this going to cost me? All these questions are asked on a daily basis from our customers. It seems there is a lot of uncertainty because advertising tends to get extremely expensive with no guarantee that it will pay off. This inspired us to launch the most affordable online print shop possible, while still providing great quality to help get your business noticed.

Ice Breakers
*

The exchange of business cards with potential customers and other leads is the most painless method for breaking the ice in new relationships. It is an act of self-promotion that is neither aggressive nor attached to any obligations. Persons on the receiving end of business cards readily accept them.
Revelation
*

Your business card divulges what you are selling. It should be pithily made clear on the card what you have to offer. Often, a company name by itself does not accomplish this fundamental mission. However, a descriptive catchphrase on a business card can effectively do the trick.
Contacts
*

Your business card is a treasure trove of contact information. Multiple ways to contact you are recommended, including phone number, cell phone number, email, and a physical address. Cover all contact bases because the reality of human nature is that some persons might correspond via email, but would not initiate phone calls.
Website
*

In the Information Age, a website is virtually a business necessity. A business card not only lists your website’s URL, but also invites people to further explore what you have to offer on their terms and at their convenience.
First Impression
*

Since your business card often makes that all-important first impression, it is essential that you not give them short shrift. Avoid the mundane. While the information on business cards is fundamental, their appearance is paramount. Stock, design, and ink colors all matter. In every kind of business undertaking, you want to stand out from the pack and give yourself an edge. Start with your business card.
Networking
*

Remember that when you distribute your business cards, the recipients sometimes pass them on to additional prospects. Look upon your business card as a portable promotion for who you are and what you do.
