If you’ve ever priced out a commercial channel letter sign, then you know how expensive they can be. There are a couple main factors that drive up the price. First there are local zoning and permit laws that are required to install one. Second they are also made to last for up to 20 years.
However, the average customer often does not need their sign to last for that long. By using a vinyl banner instead, you are investing in a sign that can last up to 3 years outside. With our great digital printing technologies, you can still get a very attractive product. Banners can be hung from the side of a building, or wrapped around a sheet of plywood for a more finished look. Either way, for a fraction of the cost you get a sign that will last for years.
Signs for construction, buildings for sale or rent, and grand opening of a business are all candidates. Perhaps you have promotion you would like to advertise that would be visible from the street. It is also a great option to advertise your business while waiting for your permanent sign to be completed. Another advantage for using a banner is that many zoning ordinances allow them to be used on a temporary basis, whereas you need to go through the permitting process to install a commercial sign.
