Large Banner Installation
Banner Tension Frame
Traditionally used for flexface or illuminated backlit banners, there are now many low-profile banner tension frame systems on the market. Some allow the fast changeover of banners for seasonal promotions. These frames tension the banner like a drumskin, giving a solid sign effect. Check your tension frame specifications prior to ordering your banner – some require just additional material around the banner, some require specific pole pockets, some require a solid rubber edging welded in.
Typically long length screws can be used, with large penny washers over the eyelets to protect the banner. It is vital to achieve the proper tension on banners fitted by this method – too loose and the wind will cause the banner to flap and affect hems and eyelets.
Once fixing points have been installed on the wall – typically large eye or hook bolts – bungee clips or ties can be used to attach to the banner eyelets. This method tensions the banner as well as allowing some ‘give’ when the wind hits, thus protecting hems and eyelets.
Wire Frame & Bungee
A steel wire frame can be run though eye bolts approximately 300mm outside the banner. Once the wire is tensioned, the banner can be fitted using a zig-zag of bungee cord. This gives the effect of a trampoline on its side, tensions the banner and allows some ‘give’ for high winds.
Large Banner Design Tips
Get your banner size right
You can design your banner at actual size or to scale, depending on the software you use. Ensure that your final print file will scale up in proportion to the size of banner you have ordered.
Allow for Eyelets and/or Pole Pockets in your design
Ensure that no critical information is within 100mm of the edge of your banner design, this allows room for eyelets, hems and other finishing options. Background images and graphics are fine, just be wary of text, numbers and logos.
Your artwork should be set to CMYK
Set your artwork to CMYK, as this matches the print process. If your artwork is in RGB mode, the colours may not come out as expected.
Colour matching to Pantone references is possible, but may take longer and will incur an extra charge. Files including pantone colours will be converted to CMYK unless you specify a colour match in your order.
Banners are first and foremost an advertising medium. Information displayed should be clear to read – consider how far away your target audience will be. If your banner is intended to be viewed from a distance then the contrast should be high and typefaces need to be legible. If you try to cram too much information onto a banner then the text may end up too small to read!
