Material Options and Estimated Costs
Two common materials for banners are vinyl and paper. If you wish to reuse the banner, vinyl will last longer. The shop may laminate your paper banner for a fee.
Shops can usually make the banner as long as desired, but they may limit banner width. Shops usually offer a choice of black-and-white or color printing on either vinyl or paper; however, the price varies for different options. For a paper banner, the price of printing in black and white is usually less expensive than color. Vinyl prices are not likely to vary between color and black and white. Contact your local shop to discuss these constraints and associated costs.
Banner designs do not include a year so that you can print them once and use them again. If you wish to add a date, both designs have a blank space available for one. Your print and copy shop can add whatever additional text you specify.
If you’d like, design and create a unique banner for your event. Bike to School and Walk to School logos are available for download and can be used without restriction on any non-commercial, not-for-profit materials.
