Commonly speaking, a vinyl banner is simple to design. Any person having a small experience of graphic design can easily design and have vinyl banner printing. And yet if you have no experience, your dealer can direct you on the right way, or even design your banner on a little charge.

Here are several things to look at when designing a vinyl banner...

1. Use software that holds CMYK full color production. There are three types of software you can utilize:

- Page Layout programs like Pagemaker, InDesign, or Quarkxpress

- Image editors like PhotoPaint, PhotoImpact, or Photoshop

- Illustration programs like CorelDraw

Commonly speaking, programs that are use for general office applications or consumers are not recommended: like Publisher, Wordperfect, Word, Excel, etc. If you have an exact inquiry, don't pause to inquire your vinyl banners provider.

2. Ensure your vinyl banner fits the part where you are heading for mount it. Do not presume at the size. Most people who are not well-known with signage will miscalculate the required size.

3. Use brilliant colors. The most outstanding vinyl banners have plenty of brilliant colors.

4. Make sure your images have enough resolution. For some recommendation on image resolution, see the Custom Vinyl Banners FAQ.

5. Design your vinyl banner in such way that it is easily understandable for your target audience. If it is going beside a road on or a fence on a building, ensure that your most important message is large enough to be understand.

6. Think substitute ways of mounting your vinyl banner. Grommet is the default process of mounting a banner on a fence or wall.

7. Keep your design plain and prominent. The top designs have two or three essential elements. Usually these will be an "identifier" such as your company name, logo, or phone number, a large headline, and a photograph.

We also need to consider the lifespan of vinyl banners, I guees it is better to place it in shaded areas to avoid exposure to the sun that may cause full-color vinyl banners to fade.

Anyone ever used a vinyl banner that was printed with latex based ink? I was referred to a place called Pixus that uses a new latex ink printer, and apparently they produce some of the most vibrant, durable vinyl banners you can get. Just haven't tried it yet. They have some info about it on their site.

I'm just doing something with latex ink and it does live up to the hype. The colors are extremely crisp, esp the blacks. However, I do wonder about how that will stand up over time if its used outdoors.
