Hi Folks,

Wanted to give you the information on how to get a banner for your tent at a pretty low cost.

You certainly can go to your local Speedy Print Shop or other graphic shops that are in about every town or city.

What I found online was a HUGE savings.

1st -  banner -   banner.com is the website.   We bought a 2' x 10' full color digital print, with gromments, hemmed sides and a pole pocket on the top only.  $55 plus ship.   Most shops in my area wanted $125 plus   (Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register)

2nd - banner brackets -  so how do you hang that nice banner?  Noooo.. please don't just zip tie to the front.  It never looks right.   We found brackets for pop ups.  $40 plus ship..  just select the bracket - no fabric.  Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register

3rd -  you need support for the pocket on the top of the banner.  what I found works best is  1"x 1" angle.   I buy a 5' and a 6' for the 10' banner.  The steel angle found at the box store is the type with all the holes drilled in.   We overlap 1' and use a bolt/nut to fasten.

Tip - At each of the banner where the angle iron stick out.  Rotate it so the flat part sits on top of the banner bracket.  We drilled a hole on the face of the banner bracket to match up with the hole in the angle iron.  1 simple thru bolt and your banner/angle iron is PERFECT.   Even in a strong wind it stays flat faced to the public.  We zip tie the bottom of the banner at the gromments to the banner bracket.

Here is our banner.   I can tell you that we have found this setup stands out vs anything else we've seen.

Let me also add that we "raise" the entire assembly so that the bottom of our banner is the same height as the tent fabric (4" that hangs down like a skirt).   In this picture, the banner is too low.   This was the side of our booth and left it low on purpose.

Hardest part in the world was finding these banner brackets.  Especially sold separate.

I'll try to find a better picture because this one doesn't do it justice..

Can't say enough about the banner company.  Order a few more for some other things I do and top notch service, shipment, etc.

If you need a small banner, 36X19", Staples is running a special on them.  $5.00  I just ordered one to go on the front of my table.
