Event Banners – 5 Do’s and Don’ts

If you’re having a large event and need to buy a few banners to hang, it’s important to consider the overall style and mood you want to set before making your purchase. There’s a time and place for everything, after all, and any savvy event planner will tell you that the details are everything when it comes to pulling off a great event. One detail that shouldn’t be overlooked is your announcement signs and event banners.

There are some simple Do’s and Don’ts that will help make sure your “Happy Anniversary” or “Congratulations” banners come off as part of the decor, rather than sticking out like a sore thumb.

DO Choose a banner size that makes sense for your space.

Nothing looks clumsier walking into a party and seeing a massive or drooping banner that takes over the whole room. Bigger is not better here, so consider the dimensions of your room and how many people will fill it. You want it to be visible, so too small is no Bueno as well, but you don’t want it to overpower the event.

DO spend time on the colors and font of the text.

Color matching is easier than you might think these days, so if you’re looking to design a banner that truly matches the color patterns in your event decor, it’s definitely possible. This is a key detail that can make or break how well your banner fits into space and adds to the look, feel and overall ambiance. Lettering font will also play a role for the same reasons. Plain block lettering might be ok for a simple small office party, but what if you’re announcing something a bit more special? Choose a font that fits the occasion and mood you want to create.

DO spend time crafting your message!

The sky’s the limit with what you can say on a banner, so get creative. You don’t want to try to squeeze too many letters and words on one banner either, so consider ordering multiple banners if you have a lot to say to your attendees. Some people like to choose a different color per banner or stick to a single hue. Whatever you decide, we’re here to make sure your banner is perfect.

DON’T spend too much money!

You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg on event banners anymore, and that’s excellent news! BannerBuzz offers low prices all year long on banners, signs, posters and other announcement materials so you can buy as much as you need. Plus you get FREE super saver shipping on orders over $99 if you do need to order in bulk.

DON’T Settle for Poor Quality

Poor quality banners made from cheap materials can turn even the chicest event into a tacky one. Your banner should be of good weight so that it hangs smoothly and be free of wrinkles. Our banners are premium vinyl and will not tear, always printed with high-quality eco-solvent ink that provides long-lasting, vibrant colors.

Bonus tip! We suggest our matte finish banners if you plan on taking photographs due to the non-reflective surface.
