Custom Vinyl Banners to Attract Attention

When a church is ready to hold a special fundraising event, like a bake sale, it is very important to advertise the event. At first this may mean additional expense but, it can be offset by more participation in the event. Here is an example of how a church can design and use a banner to promote their bake sale.

If the church will be holding a bake sale two months from today. It is a good idea to start early on their banner design, so that any problems can be taken care of before the event is due. By starting early, the church will be assured that the process will go smoothly and that the banner will be ready in plenty of time.

The first thought for this Vinyl Fundraising Banner is the design. The custom banner should be easy to read, give important information and should be attractive to look at. There will be some person in your congregation that will have the expertise to help you create this custom vinyl banner or you can go on this web site and have one of our designers work you thru an inexpensive creative design.

If you decide on a large Custom Vinyl Banner or even a small custom banner, a Full Color Banner will not be required. A simple two-color banner will be effective and also be inexpensive. The background of the banner could be perhaps, navy blue and the Vinyl Lettering in white. These would make a custom vinyl banner easy to read from near or far.

Small graphics will be used and will reflect the items that will be available at the bake sale. They should be randomly placed throughout the Banner, with careful attention not to overload one side or the other. The graphics are intended to support the text, not overwhelm it, and this should be kept in mind.

The main message of the banner is the event itself. The phrase "Church Bake Sale" will be displayed in large lettering in the center of the banner. Further information, such as the date of the sale and the times that it will be held can be placed either above or below this text in smaller lettering. Since the church wants to be able to use the banner again, they will avoid putting the date on the banner and instead will list the times that the sale will be open.

Now that the banner has been designed, it is ready to be ordered and in the meantime, the church will decide where they want to hang it. The banner should be displayed in a prominent location, at least two weeks before the event is to take place.

Since this banner is general in nature and does not list dates, fliers will be provided to the congregation with this information.

Once the banner arrives, it will be hung temporarily at the entrance of the church. On the day of the sale, this banner will be moved to where the bake sale is actually taking place. This time, it will be hung to create an entranceway into the area where the baked goods are being sold. By combining smart design techniques, and effective placement, the church is assured that their fund raiser will be a success.
