Custom banners offer the best options: you can customize them to display exactly what you want, but they are still inexpensive. Versatile, lightweight, and easy to install, banners are great. But how should you customize them?


1. What Is The Purpose Of Your Banner? The Function Of Your Banner Should Inform How You Customize It.

Banners are versatile because they can be used for different purposes. Because they’re inexpensive, they’re great for one-time events. If you’re hosting an outdoor event in the Houston area, banners are perfect. Banners are also great for recurring use. Do you have an annual spring sale at your Cypress retail store? Put your banner out during your sale time and store it for the rest of the year. Banners can even be used to add decoration. And the purpose of your banner should dictate how you customize it. If you’re imparting directional information at an outdoor event, clear text is your main goal. If you want to brand a space as belonging to your business, you can convey that just as well with colors, patterns, and graphics.

2. Combining With Function Is Location. It’s Best To Know Where You Intend To Install Your Banner Before You Customize It.

Where do you want to install your banner? From the ceiling of your Katy retail store? Over the back patio of your Sugar Land cafe? Where you hang it should decide how you orient your banner: horizontally or vertically? Choose what works best for your space. Furthermore, how much are you asking your customers to read? If you want to customize your banner with a complete sentence, then a horizontal banner might be best.

3. Sometimes You Don’t Always Have Somewhere To Hang Your Custom Banner? What Can You Do Then?

Let’s take the example of an outdoor event in Houston. Outdoors, your infrastructure options are usually limited. That’s when banner stands come into play. You can customize a banner that comes with its own stand. Then you just place the banner down on the ground or floor wherever you want to. These banners are usually vertically oriented. They can be tapered to make them wind-resistant and some can even be designed such that they retract into their own stand for portability and storage.

4. Customization Can Be An Intricate Process. You Need Somebody You Can Work With Who Understands What You Want.

Whether you’re located right in Houston or somewhere nearby like Spring or Sugar Land, you want to find a local sign studio who can customize your banner exactly to your specifications. Houston Graphic Signs can do that. Contact us today to get started.

I ordered a yard sign to announce my son's graduation from college and it is much nicer and bigger than I expected! It was also packed with great care which tells me how much they value their customers. I will definitely give Houston Graphic Signs more business in the future!

  • 5 star review  We had an outstanding experience with our signs! HGS made decals for the sides of our trucks. Brent helped us with creating the right electronic file from one of our old files. Michelle has been proactive in her communications. Quality is far better than we have received from other sign companies. HGS will be our permanent sign company going forward!

  • 5 star review  Wonderful experience! Price was competitive, customer service and quality of work was better than expected. I had to replace a store front sign just and these folks went out of there way to make sure they understood what I wanted and exceeded expectations at every point of the process.

  • 5 star review  Michelle and her team work very quickly. When I placed my order with Houston Graphic Signs, I was on a tight deadline. Not only were they Friendly and Helpful but they were also Fast and Professional. The vinyl stickers I ordered look AMAZING and are made with quality materials to hold up to wear and tear! Thank you HGS for a job VERY well done!

  • 5 star review  Used Houston Graphic Signs to wrap one of the trucks in our fleet. We've had a vendor we've used for years that we were satisfied with, but HGS is in our office complex, and we figured we'd give them a shot. The whole process from their quote, to completing the work, to invoicing was seamless and easy. The wrap went on great with no issues, and the price was a significant reduction from what I was used to paying. Great process all around, and I plan on using these guys for all of my graphics needs.
