Specifications for graphics to be kept in mind while designing a banner

Often we tend to get confused when it comes to scaling the artwork during banner design. I am sure many of you might have faced issues due to improper picture resolution. There are times when you design a banner on your computer, it looks just fine, but as soon as you submit them for printing, the picture gets blurry or in other terms it pixelates.

Graphics could be either raster or vector. The raster graphics image is a dot matrix structure generally representing a rectangular grid of pixels. They are resolution dependent so they cannot scale after a certain resolution without affecting the picture quality. e.g. MS Paint. For CMYK 4 color process printing 150-300 pixels per inch works decently good. While on the other hand, vector graphics use geometric principles like a line, curve and shapes all of which are based on mathematical expressions to represent images in computer graphics. Line art is scalable to any size and never loses resolution; hence image will stay clean and crisp. They can be submitted at any size proportionate to the banner size ordered.They use controlled points and nodes each of which can be expressed in x and y mathematical co-ordinates. e.g. Illustrator. Yes, all more so for the 2D images.

For sure there are certain norms to be kept in mind whiledesigning the graphics to maintain certain high levels of resolutions. Mainly these three metrics matter:

  • File type: Using vector software to develop images helps a great deal in keeping the file size restricted along with maintaining a very high picture quality. The images so created are vector graphic image. 
  • File format: The format in which you submit a picture for printing matters say a lot about the picture as well. The most acceptable formats are EPS (Encapsulated Post Script), AI (Adobe Illustrator), PDF (Adobe PDF), PSD (Adobe Photoshop), JPG (High Resolution JPEG) and TIFF (High Resolution TIFF). 
  • Resolution: If using raster graphic images, depending on the resolution, they get blurry as enlarged for e.g. PSD, JPG, and TIFF. The rule says: 
  • 100% scale (full size output) at 100 dpi
  • 50% scale at 200 dpi or higher
  • 25% scale at 300 dpi or higher10% scale at
  • 600-1200 dpi recommended 

Thumbnail sized jpg and gif.files are not at a high enough resolution to be used on large prints like banners.

The following tips may come in handy:

  • No bleeds are necessary (unless ordering a banner stand that requires one).A page bleed is shown on the following image:

Specifications for graphics to be kept in mind while designing a banner

  • To reduce costs, if possible, redesign to eliminate the bleed or reduce the page size enough to fit the work on a smaller sheet of paper.
  • Set up size proportionate to the exact size banner you are ordering.
  • To prevent any text or important images from falling on the hemline or interrupted by a grommet, you will want to keep them at least 2″ away from edge such that they are not on the trim edge. Of course any image past the trim line is cut off.
  • While submitting any of the acceptable forms of image file, be sure to convert all text/fonts to outlines or curves.

Other ways you can get better at gifting is by tickling your loved ones emotions and reigniting old memories (of course good ones!) through which they can connect more to your gift.

Driving employee motivation : BannerBuzz

Motivating and cultivating the employees in the right direction is often a difficult task for the management. When even after persistent trials, the staff does not feel the ownership of work, which is when you know it’s about time to change the company culture. Ensuring staff motivation as a part of company culture, you know there are a few things that follow like a viscous circle. More the job satisfaction, more the fun at work, more efficiency, better results which in turn results in improved motivation of your staff. A handful of tips that can help you get in the circle:

 Driving employee motivationPublicly praise your employees: Identify staff members with stellar performances in their respective areas and recognize their hard work. Give awards, or materialize the rewards for other members of the team to keep striving for more.

In case of a need to talk to low performing candidates, correct them privately. Make sure you keep the surroundings not too intense for them to keep an open mind. By Pareto’s principle you know there are always going to be those bottom 20% of the people striving to get to the rest.

Driving employee motivation - BannerBuzz

Include your staff in the success:When your staff stands by you in the times of need, never forget to include them in your success. Let them know they matter. Your success is a result of their hard work. Sometimes as simple as a small sign that shows gratitude boosts up their morale.

Provide continuous feedback: Employee morale depends a lot on this factor. Together set goals, give credit for a job well done, compliment them whole-heartedly and identify their strengths v/s weaknesses. Sometimes criticism can be taken in a wrong way, don’t worry; just convey the message politely. Any weakness if given enough time can be improved upon. Provide guidance, be a mentor and wait till they overcome their own shortcomings.

Give incentives: More so yes of course, in the end it is all linked to how you materialize their rewards. Tie an incentive to accolades like bonus or gift certificates. Their job may earn them some extra bit through performance driven commission.

Check out this video and summarize the matter above:

After all in the end what matters is a happy asset, more efficiency, leading to better results!! 

Making announcements was never easy!

Banners DesignIn order to generate highly effective communication sometimes you may have to go old school. By old school I mean the era of technology before Internet and social media. These old school marketing methods bring with them a surprise element when the customers least expect. We often tend to list down our priorities and later forget a few. Say while driving if we come across a signage and it reminds us of our procrastinated items, it surely rings a bell in your mind. Yard signs like many of its other counterparts are inexpensive and pretty effective when it comes to communicating your point across.

Announcement BannersAnnouncements could be for business promotions, branding, informational, family or personal events, yard sale, open houses and many more.At times getting only logos of your company printed as a yard sign can grab customer attention and make your presence felt. Designing media advertisements, adds up to a lot of cost, many a times them being unnecessary. With the market being tight and recession kicking in, cost cutting has become a name game. In this situation, yard signs come to rescue providing a cost effective solution helping make announcements easier.

Yard signs are a sure shot attention seeker while driving or walking across the street. Especially strategically placed signs with maximum visibility like the ones besides the pavement or on the block dividing the road, can convey a point across well. They can be used in various ways such as indoor as well as outdoor areas in places like tradeshows, events or business promotions.

Welcome BannersOften what is difficult for social media to achieve and yard signs can easily do is captivate the customer’s attention. Every person reading that sign is a potential customer. They may be in search of you or if ever a need, they will remember to contact you or a service like you. With all the competition in the media industry as well, you need to stand out from your competition for the customer to even say like your page on facebook, follow you on twitter or as simple as even open and read your email. As in case of a yard sign, as far as its there, it keeps alluring more and more people to read them. Sometimes as we said, people don’t realize they need your services until they read your sign.

Banners and Signs

Informational yard signs can be put up as a series of signs to convey a message effectively. Yard signs can be an inexpensive solution to direct brand building.  Often during tradeshows people do put up directional signs to navigate traffic to their exhibit or just a casual fun sign for people to stop by and satisfy their curiosity.  These signs could have either a straight base or a cross spike base for better grip. They are light in weight, which makes portability much easier. In order to protect your sign from severe wind and other adverse conditions, either a sand bag or a water pouch is being put on the leg of the sign.

Regardless for new business these signs become a boon when it comes to spreading the word around. Carpenters, roof repair services, painters, landscapers, and other home improvement consultants put up a sign outside the house for people in the neighborhood to know they are at work. This could be beneficial while attracting potential new customers or retaining old customers. After all the end goal of any business is to be visible and approachable without burning a hole in their pocket!

How to Get Your Banner to Show More Signs of Success

Vinyl banners are one of the most affordable ways to promote your business, but if your banner can’t be seen or read, you are not reaping the full benefits of your investment.

How to Get Your Banner to Show More Signs of Success

Attention-getting design

It starts with your design, which you can easily create yourself on the BannerBuzz website. Choose a color and font type and size for your text that can be read from a distance and stand out against the background color of the banner. Before you begin designing your banner, take a look at the location of where it will be placed. Make sure the color of the banner will pop out from the surrounding area.

Well-traveled location

You will also want to think carefully about where you plan to hang the banner prior to ordering it, since the location will influence the size and type of banner you need. If you can select a location with high traffic – motorists and/or pedestrians – more people will be exposed to your message. You also need to make sure your banner will be visible to the public and not blocked by trees, light poles, traffic lights, high-voltage wires, or buildings.

Proper placement 

Once your banner arrives, it is critical to hang it correctly so it is at the right height and aligned evenly. We offer a variety of fasteners to meet your specific needs:

Bungee cords are one of the most popular and simple ways to hang banners. They are typically used to attach banners to a pole or fence.

Nylon rope also works well for attaching banners to poles and posts. It withstands harsh weather conditions. Nylon rope can be ordered in custom lengths.

Zip ties are the best way to display a banner on a chain link fence. They are inexpensive, yet durable –it takes a wire cutter to remove them.

Wall brackets will be needed if you plan to hang your banner on the side of a building. It will be necessary to drill holes in the wall to install the brackets.

Sky hooks will be needed if you wish to hang your banner on glass or any smooth surface. They contain an adhesive, eliminating the need to drill. Yet they feature incredible holding power. Sky hooks also blend in well, so they won’t detract from your message.

Poles and pole brackets are the option for you if you need to set up your banner on the ground. You’ll get two poles that will display banners up to 30 inches in width, along with two heavy-duty brackets.

Grommets can be requested in metal or clear options. There is no additional charge for metal grommets. You can also order banner clips, which allow you to hang your banner without the need for grommet holes.

If you need help with the design or in choosing the proper accessories for your banner, feel free to contact us for assistance.
