I own a gymnastics studio for children. Our landlord did not allow changeable reader board signs so we got creative. I ordered three different vinyl banners for the various specials we offer.
All I have to do is unroll the vinyl banner and tie it under our existing sign up front. When we change the special, I just take the old vinyl banner down and put the new one up.
The really great part is that not only was were these three banners a lot less expensive than one of those changeable signs, the color vinyl banner looks so much better (thanks to the help of your graphic artist!)
Thank you so much.Sincerely,
World of Fun Gymnastics
I am extremely satisfied with my experience creating and ordering a custom banner from your company. The website customer service rep I spoke with was excellent, everyone I dealt with was helpful and I love that your website is so comprehensive!
We took a survey at the event that our banner was for to find out how people heard about the event and several said they saw the banner from a ways away and were persuaded to stop by, so thank you for the help we received from your graphic designer! Our custom banner most certainly was effective and helped contribute to the success of our event!
Thanks again for everything and I guarantee we will use your company again!

Frequently Asked Questions About Custom Vinyl Banners
For most outdoor vinyl banners, we recommend our Heavy Duty, High Gloss (14 ounce) BannerMax Material. The component that makes a vinyl banner “heavy duty” is the nylon scrim that is woven into the waterproof fabric. This strong, tight weave provides tear resistance during high winds.
However, even when using heavy duty vinyl banner material, the grommets (eyelets) can tear right out of the corners if the banner is not hung properly.
Yes! BestBuySigns offers ghost-free, two-sided vinyl banners!
Standard vinyl banner material is “translucent”. In other words, you can see the light right through it. So if you put letters on both sides of standard banner material, a faint ghost image of the letters are visible on the other side of the banner. This ghosting effect can distract you’re your message and doesn’t look professional.
Therefore by specifying a “16 ounce blockout banner material” for your double-sided vinyl banners, you will avoid the see-through effect while adding significant strength to your custom banner For maximum durability and wind resistance, double-sided vinyl banners should have hems and grommets placed every 30”.
Yes, street banners do have special requirements
Most municipalities now have strict rules regarding how over-the-street vinyl banners are to be made. It’s a matter of public safety. We know these requirements and routinely provide street banners for special events, parades and festivals.
Street banners should be made using 20 ounce, extra heavy duty blockout vinyl banner material with a super tough webbing sewn into the hem for extra reinforcement. Grommets should be placed every 2’. Wind slits substantially reduce wind loads and are now usually required by municipalities on all vinyl street banners.
The same banner material that’s used for outdoor banners is great for indoor banners too. If your audience is going to be viewing your banner up close though, we offer a premium “Super Smooth” banner material option at no additional charge.
Trade shows are all about drawing new customers by putting your best foot forward. One of the best looking banner materials for trade shows is our Super Smooth banner material because it looks so great up close.
However, since a trade show is where everyone is “showing off”, there is a more popular, higher end option to consider to make sure your booth really stands out in the crowd.
If you wish to project the best possible Corporate Image, there’s nothing better than a full-color Flexible Plastic Banner (yes, plastic). When digitally printed on a high resolution printer, this photo receptive plastic banner material will project the highest quality appearance possible. Plus, it’s so durable and flexible, it can be used again and again with a portable,.
Our premium trade show banners are printed directly onto the plastic film using our high resolution, full-color printer and then protected with a laminate film on the back to preserve the image from show to show.

Designing a custom banner can be a scary task. Chances are you are not a graphic artist or a professional sign designer. You need someone with expertise to make the most of your custom banner. So what can you do?
How do you make sure your banner signs won't suck?
As a complimentary service to our clients we offer Live Design . This is your chance to work one on one with a professional graphic artist. Via a secured, live connection you will be able to see the screen of the artist as if you were sitting next to them. You can see changes in real time as your custom banner comes to life.
You will also be speaking with the artist by phone and can request any changes that you would like to see. The artist will immediately make those changes. If you don't like the changes, ask her to change them back!
What if I already know what I want on my custom banner?
If you already know what you want your banner to look like you can lay out the design and get your price using SignMagic, our free online sign design center.
All vinyl banners can be used indoors or out. How the banners will be used (displayed), normally prescribes how the banner is finished. When displaying banners outside, always think safety first. Be sure the supporting structure is sound. Vinyl banners hung out in the open can be subject to significant wind loads. Be sure you secure your vinyl banner well using the instructions included with your order.
Style A: Hemmed edges with grommets at the top and bottom as needed. (Number of grommets needed depends on banner size)
Style B: Hemmed edges with grommets at the top and bottom as needed, with rope sewn into the top and bottom hems. The rope ends extend out from the banner edge making ties. Rope length can be specified.
Style C: Hemmed edges with rope sewn into the top and bottom hems. Rope extends from banner making ties. Rope length can be specified.
Style D: Hemmed sides with webbing sewn into top and bottom. Webbing extends as needed for ties.
Style E: Hemmed sides, webbing top and bottom with grommets spaced as needed (depending on banner size).
Styles F: To support banners on hardware, sleeves can be sewn into the top and bottom of the banner. The sleeve can be sized to fit the hardware: the circumference (dia. X 3.14) of the supporting pole divided by 2 plus an inch will calculate a good sleeve size.
Style G: Grommets can be added to the top and bottom in an extra extension above and below the sleeves for more versatility in display options.
Style H: Street banners (or light pole banners) are usually finished with top and bottom sleeves with a grommet just below the top sleeve and just above the bottom sleeve.
Style I: For a very strong construction which will be attached using ties you supply, sewn in webbing with "D" rings offers a very reliable solution. When adding tie points to large vinyl banners, grommets can be added to the top and bottom, or even on the sides.
