Tips for Designing Your Banners Powered By Docstoc
					When attending a trade show to promote your business it is highly important to ensure
that you have good trade show displays in order to attract the attention of those in
attendance and to get people looking at your display and talking about what you have
to offer. One of the best ways to do this is with banners which are designed to get a
message across a large area by displaying clearly a large image or large text that can
be read across a hall or across an outdoors area.       However creating banners is not
overly easy and there are many different things to take into account. Here we will
look at some pointers for creating banners that can help you to make the right choices
to create highly effective banners that will promote your company.
  Use banner stands and vinyl banners: Vinyl banners are a type of banner made from
a flexible yet durable material. This means they can be hung from walls and over the
top of your tradeshow displays and that makes them perfect for being noticed from a
distance. However banner stands are useful from up close as they stand on the ground
and are at eye-level as you are walking past. For the best banner 'arrangement' then,
opt to go for both.
  Choose your type of vinyl: When you make vinyl banners you will have the choice
of several types of vinyl and the decision you go for will depend on what you need it
for. For instance you will have the option to go for glossy vinyl or for matte vinyl.
Here glossy vinyl will be more adept at catching the light and thereby getting
attention, while matte vinyl will be easier to read and won't be distorted by the light as
much. Light levels then will help you decide to choose which type of vinyl to go for
here. Meanwhile another type of vinyl for vinyl banners is mesh. This type has small
holes in it and this is very useful for several reasons 鈥?allowing light to pass through
so that it doesn't cast as much of a shadow, and allowing wind to blow through so that
it doesn't wave around too much which can make it hard to see. Mesh vinyl then may
be better for outdoors banners.
  Use roll up banner stands: Roll up banner stands or pop up banner stands are banners
that are still great for being seen from up close, but they are far more convenient to
transport as they can be folded down to be smaller. This also makes them easier to
transport and means you are less likely to damage them so that they stay looking new.
  Make your banners stand out: Your banners are designed to catch the attention of
people walk past and to be seen from a distance. Thus it is no good having a small
black and white banner as this just won't attract any attention. Far more useful are
banners that utilise large colourful images and large text that can be read from across
the tradeshow.
  Great banner stands and vinyl banners can make all the difference to your tradeshow
display. Visit the links for more.
