If your landlord and city code allows it, a strategically placed rooftop banner can be an excellent beacon for your business. At 8 ft tall and over 40 ft long, this rooftop banner near Catalina Landing in Long Beach can’t be missed.
Banners come in all shapes and sizes, and are very easy to customize to fit any situation. Different banner materials include light and heavy-weight vinyls, mesh banner, and fabric options depending on your application. Here are some things to consider when planning for your banner:
1. Where will the banner be located? Indoor or outdoor? Will it be viewed close-up, or from farther away? Super-smooth, yet more expensive banner material is great for an indoor trade show, but not ideal for a rooftop banner.
2. Will wind be an issue? Heavy winds can turn a banner into a sail, and if it is not produced and installed properly, such a banner can topple a light post in a heavy wind!
3. Method of attachment. Will be the banner be mounted semi-permanently to a wall? Or temporarily to a chain link fence? Perhaps a frame or other system will be required to display the banner. All of these options require a different finishing of the banner.
4. How long will the banner be displayed? Very short term, single-use banners can be made from less expensive material than banners that need to look good for a year or longer. If your vinyl banner will hang outdoors for more than a year, you will want to invest in more sturdy materials.
