Custom Vinyl Banners that make a Statement
Your band in different from the other bands, and your Custom Vinyl Banner should make a statement to let your listeners know. The custom banner that you create will be used to identify your group when you play at various gigs and should be a reflection of your overall purpose. Below we have listed some ways that you can create a custom vinyl banner that will make a statement that will set your band apart from all the other bands.
A great way to attract the attention that you need would be to use full color. Full color custom vinyl banners will get your design to stand out. This may cost you an extra few dollars but it is worth the price when you see how it will stand out from simple two or four color custom vinyl banners. However, if money is a major factor then using a two or four color banner will work if you try and be creative in your design and lettering. If the design that you decide to use, has a complicated and colorful logo, then a full color custom vinyl banner should be the way to go. If your logo is simply line art, or you only need a text banner, a simple banner would work well in this case, using two or four colors. As you design your custom vinyl banner you will be able to see which works for you.
The artwork that you decide to use on your custom vinyl banner should match any promotional materials you use for your banner. For instance, if you already have t-shirts or other items that carry your logo then you should try to design your custom vinyl banner around these materials. If you do not already have these materials designed then you can use your banner as a great start pointing.
By creating a custom vinyl banner, where all of your materials match, your fans will recognize you immediately. They will associate your unique color scheme, or design with your band, and this can help you with record sales, any products like tee shirts etc., or just increasing your fans.
When you are deciding what colors to use remember that bold bright colors are more effective than drab colors or light pastels. Bold, bright colors are more readily noticed and tend to be mood enticing, than drab colors or pastels. The type of music the band plays also will help you decide what colors, fast disco music will certainly call for bright neon colors where as chamber music would demand colors that would try to affect a peaceful mood. Again you are your own judge in the final decision.
High school bands should have their school colors and the school logo on their custom vinyl banners. This is very useful in competitions, when your uniforms will match your school colors. Then your custom vinyl banner should coordinate well with these uniforms and be instantly recognizable to the crowd.
The graphics you select will also make a statement. If you do not have a logo, or you need extra graphics for your banner, try to find graphics that represent what you do. For example, a marching band could use graphics such as bass drums, flutes or other band instruments. A rock band could use graphics of an electric guitar, flames or other bold graphics. Also a digital picture of your group could be used.
The bottom line is that your Vinyl Banner that you have created should be a reflection of you and your band If you keep this in mind while you are going through the design process and you'll be able to make a unique statement with your banner.
