Quality banner printing
California Baptist University Lancer Golf Classic just ordered a few signs to show appreciation to all their sponsors. They are trying to raise as much support they can to help those students who cannot afford a CBU education. We all know that education can get quite pricey, especially for a private university like CBU. On Thursday, April 21, 2016, they will be hosting an event at the Eagle Glen Golf Club in Corona, California to make a positive impression for CBU student athletes.
We helped California Baptist University recognize every sponsor helping out the athletes by incorporating their logo onto large outdoor banners and coroplast signs. Creating banners for sponsors is a common way people use banners, especially in the sports industries. We also see many sports companies use sponsor banners as backdrops for photos. Each different sign consisted of different sponsors such as Dinner Sponsors, Thank You Sponsors, and many more.
CBU does a great job in using signage for their events. We love working with them because they really utilize our services to our full potential. Banners and coroplast is an excellent material to use when hosting one day events. Coroplast is affordable and can be easily disposed. Banners last longer, and can be used for multiple events, so it'll be smart for CBU to reuse this sponsor banner to save a few extra dollars. Who knows those few extra dollars could be going to a student's education! We love when our services go to a great cause. We hope for an amazing turnout CBU!
Signage is a great form of advertisement for many reasons. It's inexpensive, targeted, repetitive, reusable, and effective, so you'll definitely be getting your money's worth when purchasing one. Many businesses use signage as advertisements because it's an easy way to reach just walking traffic and the individuals who are already interested. KTM ordered large foam core signs from us displaying their 15% off boots and helmets sale, including a few images. Using bright colors like orange, is a great way to catch the eyes of individuals.
Inexpensive Advertising, especially through media, can get pricey the more complex it gets. To reserve a spot for a 30 second commercial for the Super Bowl can add up to be millions of dollars, which isn't a tangible medium for most small businesses. Banners and coroplast/foamcore signs are a great alternative because it only takes a couple dollars to make a sign that can reach a lot of people just by putting it outside your business. Furthermore, you're working with a plain canvas that can display and print anything. The ideas are endless!
These signs are not wasteful because putting them outside your business already targets the individuals you want to target. These signs will already be in the reach of potential customers, which is a great marketing tactic because it doesn't require extra effort to physically reach out to individuals who might be interested in the specific product or service.
Unlike commercials or quick ads that go away after a few seconds, banners and signage leaves a mark in the customer's brain, which influences them in the future to remember the certain product or service. Repetition is important when it winds down to getting the the ad imbedded into the consumer's brains.
Banners and cororplast/ foamcore is a reusable and durable material. It is perfect for reusing signs, because they will last a long time, and it'll save a lot of money on the business end. They're also super light weight, which is really efficient for traveling purposes, so if you're a business that holds a lot of similar events signage will definitely be on your side!
Signs and banners are an effective means of advertisement. People pay attention to signs especially when they're are familiar with the brand or logo printed on the sign. In comparison to the cost of produce the advertisement, to the amount of people it can reach, it's definitely worth your buck! Effective and affordable marketing tactics are the way to go. There's not a need for overpriced advertisements, when you'll your money's worth with signage. Cheap banners but not cheap quality.
We're just as excited for Coachella as you all are! For those of you who don't know about Coachella, it is an annual music festival that is held in Indio, California on April 15- 24, 2016. A large variety of different musical artists gather together to perform and share an amazing festival experience for two weekends. Many people have the joy to just attending these events, but they are not aware of all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes. Our warehouse has been working particularly hard to get these Coachella event signs done because we know how crucial festival signs are at large events that gather huge crowds.
We mainly printed signage to help eliminate the chaos, and keep the venue nice and organized. We created coroplast parking lot signs to designate specific vehicles to certain lots, which is a smart thing to do when wanting to avoid unnecessary traffic. Since Coachella is a large event hosting a significant amount of attendees, signs are a must! We cannot emphasize any more how helpful signs are. Looking at it through an attendee's perspective, they would want the most efficient and best festival experience because getting lost in a huge crowd is never a way to go! Coachella is doing it right, for those who need some inspiration for their upcoming event.
Banners and signage could be use for a lot of things, not just events. An awesome way to use a banner or foam core board is for your child's sport team! It's inevitable for a sports team to not have images of their players. With the variety of printing services we provide, there are many different ways you can make each team player feel special!
Foam Core Action Shots Many people don't think about printing images onto foam core boards, but they actually turn out really nice! Using foam core is quite the economical way to display photos. Also, foam core allows the vibrant colors of the image to really pop because of its lamination process. Not only does foam core help the colors pop, but it also helps the color to last longer on the material itself. Foam core action shots will fit in just about anywhere, whether you want to hang them up at a banquet, or simply inside the coach's office. You can also hang them up in your room walls. California Baptist University has ordered many foam core image prints from us, and they are always coming back for more because they look so good! Check out a few of the prints below of their wrestling players in action.
Player Vinyl Banners Team player banners are great for gym and outdoor purposes! Hanging these large vinyl banners that display the name, position, number, and grade of the player will help the student body know who's part of the team. These player sport banners can also come with grommets that will make the hanging process a lot more easier. The vinyl banners below are an example of the Tigers high school baseball team, and they definitely make every player look special!
Team Vinyl Banners Team banners are a must! Many sports teams like creating team banners that display the names of the players, coaches, sponsors, year, and more. As a team it's always nice to have a visual representation of who you guys are and what team you guys are in. Below is a large sports banner for the Metro Maniacs baseball team. This banner will be hung up on the baseball fence during their games.
Traffic is never a good way to start an event. Traffic within a parking lot is worse! To avoid the chaos, directional event signs will definitely take a lot off your plate. For safety purposes, directional signs are a great investment. They will not only guide the crowd the right way, but also help organize your lot to avoid future traffic and accidents. We have a few tips that can help your signage be the most effective for your parking lot. Many people make the mistake of creating signs that don't do a very good job in its purpose.
Directional Signage Tips
- Bright Colors- When making directional signage, bright colors are a must! Just like how traffic signs are always posted in bright colors, using bright colors like yellow and red will help the audience to notice these signs, which will be more effective for your event.
- Arrows- Arrows are a plus. Using arrows help drivers to follow through the lot without confusion.
- Bold Font- From far way unbolded font can be unclear or hard to read. Bold font allows people to follow from afar, which avoids drivers to make mistaken turns. We all know traffic happens from all the mistakes people make, and we got to wait for them to fix them.
Lots can bring a bunch of chaos to your event, but we can sure help you to stay more organized! Visit our webpage to start your order today!
With so many different types of banner materials on the market these days, sifting through the thousands of banner printing web sites can be a daunting task. I’m here to give you some clarity on what banner material you should order. It all starts with what type of event or product you're trying to market with your banner and whether it will be used indoors or outdoors.
Lets start with 13 oz. 13 ounce banner material is the most common banner material in the world and the most versatile. This material is what you see when you see a banner hanging on the side of a building or used for a light pole banner. Even though this material isn't designed to print double sided we still make double sided banners with 13oz. This works by printing the client's artwork head to head and folding the material like a big taco, and if needed, extra material can be sewn in the middle to help keep light from passing through.
We also leave extra material on the top and bottom for pole pockets, how banners slide onto the poles, and one grommet on the inside is used to zip tie the banner to the pole to keep the banner from sliding off on windy days. You can see the fibers up close in the 13 oz banner, and these are what make it more durable than 15 oz.
13 oz. up close
Another use for 13 oz. banner material is building banners, which are really common in the commercial real estate market for marketing large industrial buildings for sale on the side of freeways. This is a low cost high impact way to let potential buyers know these buildings are for sale since these large banners are visible from a long ways away.

Trade Show banners can also be produced out of 13 oz. banner material. We use really neat banner framing systems and attach these to trade show booths to make really large seamless images that can be changed out with ease. This is a great way to go instead of wrapping your booth with adhesive back vinyl and incurring all the extra cost of having to pay a professional graphic installer. You would also have to remove them from your booth for the next trade show, which can be tough depending on the type of material that was used, and would most likely leave adhesives behind on the surface of your booth that would need to be cleaned.
13 oz. banner
Now lets get into 15 oz. super smooth banner material. Super Smooth is really for indoor use only. 15 oz. super smooth has a very smooth surface and makes a really nice image when printed since it doesn't have all the fibers for strength like 13 oz. has. Just because we are calling this 15 oz. and it sounds bigger and badder don’t be fooled, 13 oz. is actually much stronger than this texture. If the surface fibers are what make it stronger, the fibers holding it together, 15 oz. super smooth doesn't have these and that's what makes the surface so smooth and nice for printing.
15 oz. up close
This material does have some very cool qualities besides being smooth and printing nice, it has a nice little thing called block out. Whats block out? This is a black material that is laminated in the middle of the banner material that does not allow light to pass through. So when you're at a trade show and you're using 15 oz. super smooth at a banner stand, the light passing through doesn't allow you to see the artwork printed on the other side. It is also used for hanging banners in windows at retail stores for the same reason, so your artwork is impactful inside and out.

People live day by day unaware of the many global issues that exist. It is extremely important to bring awareness to such issues to make our world a better place as a whole. Global Inheritance is a 501C3 non-profit organization that develops experiences that educate individuals about global issues and inspire them to take positive actions that create solutions. Global Inheritance brings awareness at variety of events by offering not only a fun experience, but also educating individuals.
Within Global Inheritance, there are numerous different programs to help people take initiative and be aware of certain global issues. One of their awesome programs is Rain Supreme, which is a program that is designed to help people save water in this gnarly Californian drought. As we are expecting El Niño season to bring forth some intense wet weather conditions, Global Inheritance wants communities to collect and store water to be reused for our daily watering needs. They have worked together with many artists to create redesign the rain barrels that will be put up across Southern California to help store the water from the rain. These barrels will be available in homes, as well as an exhibit for people to view the cool artwork.
Banner4sale got the opportunity to create vertical vinyl outdoor event banners for the Rain Supreme initiative. These banners also have grommets installed in them for efficient hanging purposes. It's super rad to see how artwork can be used for a good cause with the help of Global Initiative.
Another one of the programs that they have put together is TRASHed (Trash Education), which was launched in 2004. TRASHed helps recycling happen at festivals around the world. It gets people involved and encourages them to recycle bottles, cans, and cups at large events, in return for points. Using those points, they can receive a variety of cool prizes. Not only does it keep the even grounds clean, but it also gives the people an incentive for a great cause! They want to strive for a positive and meaningful experience that will help others learn good habits to use within their everyday life.
Got an event or party to plan for, but don't know where to start? Banners are a good place to begin. People may underestimate the importance of event banners; however, they will come in your favor during the process of planning your event, we promise! You can knock out so many questions just by using a simple vinyl banner, like the one pictured above. Putting a banner up a few weeks before an event can answer questions like "Where or when is the event?" or "What type of event is it?" without even having to interact with the attendees. Talk about taking off some weight off your shoulders!
Important Things to Include in a Banner:
- Name of the Event
First and foremost, if you're going to include one thing on a banner it should be the name of the event. The name of the event is important in so many obvious ways. It will not only help the viewers to search the event online if they are interested, but it will also allow them to get a feel of what the event is all about. Like the banner pictured above, "Fiesta" says it all! Any viewer will know it's going to be a fun time.
2. Date and Time of the Event
Ok, this one's a given. People need to check their availability before they even commit. Adding the dates and times of the event will definitely make it easier on people and we all know when something is simple and easy, it lures us more. This banner could have included a more specific date to avoid any confusion, but it still works!
Leaving a small space for the location of your event is helpful as well. It helps people get an idea of where the event is and if they are close enough to attend.
4. Intriguing Graphic
An intriguing graphic always catches the eye. Bright colors, cool graphics, and some fancy fonts will top it off. The OLPH Annual Fiesta banner has all of the above. Remember, banners are to grab the attention of people, so they could attend the specific event. If your banner is lacking some color, it won't be noticed, which loses its purpose.
It's important to include the small details on informative banners to not only take some weight off your shoulders as an event planner, but also to avoid confused people. We love helping these events come together to make your event planning process easier. The pictured banner is an example of a basic event vinyl banner for OLPH Annual Fiesta with grommets.
What are grommets?
Grommets are small metal rings that are attached to a variety of signs and banners made out of materials such as vinyl, fabric, coroplast and many more. Available in many different shapes and size, these grommets play as reinforcements to protect holes from ripping. Materials, such as vinyl, can get heavy when used for large banners; therefore, grommets are a necessity to avoid one's sign from ripping when hung. Each grommet is made out of two pieces. Each piece is placed in between the material of choice and pressed together to form a stronger bond. We highly recommend ordering grommets with your banner if your banner is heavier in size or for permanent, long lasting purposes. Doing so, you won't face any rips or tears in your material!
Here at Banner4sale, we are all about precision and delivering with quality. When grommeting our banners, we make sure each grommet is precise and secured on properly. There are many different materials for grommets; however, we like to use metal because it is the most durable, leaving the chances to rip little to none. We can assure you that grommets will also help keep your banner looking sleek and clean because they will be equally placed along the edges of the banner. Check out this fairly large vinyl banner we put together for Xtreme Party World. Imagine if they had not ordered grommets, hanging this big boy up would have been an utter pain! If you're contemplating before placing your order, grommets or no grommets, we suggest getting them for your convenience. Just remember, banners and signs are meant to be hung up. Better to be safe than sorry!
Being successful as a business is all about standing out from all the other similar brands out there. Even though technology has grown and many businesses profit through internet sales, bricks and motar businesses are still extremely successful. Therefore, brands should strive to make themselves noticeable, even if it comes down to the nitty gritty.
A simple and great way to make your brand noticeable is through signage. To attract new customers, outdoor and indoor signs will definitely increase brand exposure. According to Brandongaille.com , it states "35% of people wouldn’t even know your business was at its location unless you have a sign displayed," which shows how much signs can be to your advantage.
To produce a sign that is eye-catching and unique in content, you got to think about a few things: the graphics (content), the material, and the placement of the sign. Do you know the difference between sign substrates? For event centered signage, the two that come to mind are Coroplast or Sintra (expanded pvc). But which is right for your needs and budget?
Sintra (or expanded pvc) is light, very smooth, and prints with a detailed matte finish that is ideal when you want to take your event level up a notch. This material is flexible and works well indoors in frames or outdoors in a-frame stands.
Coroplast is light, strong, weather resistant, and very economical. It is often referred to as "plastic cardboard" because of it's fluted design much like cardboard. It's great for outdoor use and the flutes can be used in conjunction with inexpensive wire stakes we offer on our webpage than can be stuck in the ground. Ideal for extended temporary uses.
The material depends completely on preference and purpose. In the photo above, you can see the difference between coroplast and PVC. Be sure to remember, whatever material you choose, light absorption could damage your sign. Hope this was helpful!
