So, you want your child’s birthday to be the best it can be, and for you, that includes a “Happy Birthday” banner that celebrates their special day. However, you’re looking for something a little more substantial than construction paper and streamers.
Why not get a custom vinyl banner professionally printed? It will be much higher quality than anything you could make on your own, and you can keep it around to use at personalised birthday banners for the next few years.
Here are a few steps for making sure you get the best custom vinyl banner for your birthday budget.
Birthday Banner Materials
Really, for durability and attractiveness, vinyl is the best material for banners. A quality custom vinyl banner will keep its color for three years, even in direct sunlight. And at $3.50 a square foot, a decent-sized banner won’t break the bank.
Custom Vinyl Banner Design
Maybe you’ve already got a birthday theme picked out, and you’ve got an idea of what you can do with a banner there. If you don’t already have a theme picked out, what about making a custom vinyl banner designed after something that the birthday boy (or girl) really likes?
Do they have a fondness for a particular sports team? Do they have a favorite movie or music artist? Do they really, really like the idea of being a princess? Just take an idea like that and run with it. You can add a picture of your child and their name to the banner as well, if you’d like.
If you have several kids and want a banner that will do multiple birthdays, find some pictures of festive balloons and confetti, and just add “Happy Birthday!” It will still be colorful and fun, and you won’t have to worry about getting a different banner for each kid. (Unless, of course, you really want to do that.)
If you need a good site for art, pictures or other graphics, iStockphoto.com is one of the best. It does cost money to use the pictures, but their selection is HUGE. If you don’t have what you need, graphics-wise, chances are you can find it there.
Birthday Banner Size
Unless you’re going to be somewhere like a skating rink, or you’ve got a really, really big house, you probably don’t need a custom vinyl banner that’s too terribly large. Something like 2′ x 4′ will probably work just fine. If you put it near the table with the cake (or with the presents), then everybody will have reason to come over and take a look at it.
