FASTSIGNS® banners are usually made with a durable nylon-reinforced vinyl. We can also utilise other materials, such as fabric, if desired.
Can I provide my own logo or graphics?
Yes. Your logo or other graphics may be used on your banner, and our consultants can work with you on a design that will maximise the visibility of your logo and message in one or multiple colours.
How durable are they?
The nylon-reinforced vinyl FASTSIGNS uses is very durable and should last a long time when properly installed. The location you choose for your banner will help determine the best banner solution for you, as the printing options may vary in durability, especially when exposed to full sun. Consult with your FASTSIGNS centre to determine the best material solution for the purpose and location you have in mind.
Do the banners come with grommets?
Grommets or other finishing options such as hemmed edges, pole pockets, banner-ups, or d-rings with nylon webbing can be added to banners. Although grommets are the most commonly used finishing option, depending on the use of your banner, another option may better serve your needs. Consult with your FASTSIGNS centre to determine the best finishing option for the purpose and location you have in mind.
Can FASTSIGNS® install my outdoor banners?
Yes, we can install your banner. Generally speaking, our FASTSIGNS centres will either install or help you manage the installation of any sign we provide.
Am I limited on the number of colours I can have on my signage?

Can FASTSIGNS create a special size banner?

How long do outdoor banners typically last?
The longevity of an outdoor banner varies widely. After the vinyl and printing choice, the life of your banner depends on appropriate installation and on environmental conditions like sun and wind which usually range from extreme to moderate. Banners are most commonly intended for short-term applications. Your FASTSIGNS consultant will be able to provide you with the best options to fit your budget and communications needs.
