Banners in Action - Band Identification

One of the best uses for vinyl banners is to promote the name of your band. These banners are easy to design and display and can become a portable promotional tool for your band. If you need a way to let your audience know who you are, you may want to consider adding a banner to your act.

This example will showcase how a sample band can effectively use a banner to promote their act. The entire process from the initial design phase to the display process will be covered.

Our sample band is a Country act, which frequently tours around their state, playing several different gigs a week. They currently do not have a banner and are relying on club owners to promote the name of their act. This doesn't always work and many people in the audiences may not know who this band is.

In order to correct this, the country band decides to create a banner. This banner will display the name of their band, as well as the names of the members. The banner will also be used to reflect the style and personality of the band members, which is high energy.

This means that the banner will need to be created in vibrant colors. There are no set uniforms or clothes for the band, so they will not need to worry about coordinating their sign. Instead, they are free to get creative with their color choices.

The band decides to use a black background with vibrant, neon pink lettering. This color combination will work well in dark bars as well as outdoor venues and will ensure that most people in the audience will be able to see it. The pink lettering contrasts well with the dark background and will be visible even in low-light conditions.

The name of the band will be displayed in the center of the banner, using a font that is bold and large. This font's letters will be wide so that the name can be easily read, even from a distance. As we mentioned earlier, the names of the five members of the band will be integrated into the design.

This can be done in a creative way by using graphics that reflect what the member plays or does in the band. The drummer's name will be displayed in the upper left corner, right below a graphic of a drum set. The lead singer's name will be displayed in the center, next to a graphic of a microphone.

The two guitarist's names will be on either side of the name of the band, next to graphics of guitars. Finally, the bass player's name will be displayed in the upper right corner, under the graphic of a bass.

Now that the design process is complete, the band will be ready to take their banner wherever they go. It can be easily hung above the stages that are available at most venues, using ropes and brackets, or outside, using ropes and poles. This type of sign will work well both indoors and outdoors and will last the band through several years.
