Indoor Vs Outdoor Banners
Vs Trade Show Banners

Is there a difference between indoor banners and outdoor banners and trade show banners?  Banner printing and sign printing do have some subtle differences. 

For example, Indoor Banners: the color gamut used in indoor banner printing is richer than regular offset color printing, therefore more vibrant fluorescent type colors can be used during the banner sign printing color process. To top it off, banners and signs can be laminated for lasting protection against wear and weather

Outdoor banners get viewed from further away than indoor banners and therefore the amount of details that can be observed is lower and so is the resolution of the printing. So outdoor printing equipment does not produce very high resolution printing.

Trade show banners and graphics are just on the opposite end when compared to outdoor banners. These banners and signs are looked from distances as close as 2 or 3 feet and must be outstanding in grabbing the visitors' attention. Trade show banners must not reflect light to permit clear reading from different points. Printing quality must be superb and photo realistic.

The matter of banner graphic design – too much or not enough?
Sign and banner printing is easiest when a high quality professional color banner printing service is used to print a banner.  Yet, to print banners the right way requires a high level of creativity and knowledge of the color signs printing industry

Biggest Errors in Banner and Sign Preparation:

Many companies make the mistake of slapping a cheap sign together at the last minute, hoping that 'something is better than nothing'.  That may not be the case, as wary consumers erroneously mistake the business as unprofessional. Well designed signs and banners will make a difference in the attention they get, and the type of public that respponds to the message. Investing in high quality color signs and banners printing and design will send the right message: that the company is successful enough to afford color advertising signage.

Another notable trait regarding banner and sign printing is that generally most commercial signs are printed in a larger format than regular poster printing.  Signs print one-by-one, therefore they can be readily made quicker than traditional color print runs.  Businesses who need signs by tomorrow for a last-minute trade show banner or as a way to advertise a special event can call upon the services of a color printing company such as Color Copies USA, 1-877-421-0668 to prep them for the event. 

Lastly, as far as banner graphics go, the less is more strategy must apply.  Giant, fun fonts work better than small fonts because the words are more noticeable and readable to people passing by.  It's better to have LESS copy and just a few words.  Even having too many photos on a color sign or banner can be very distracting.  Make the color banner graphic loud and proud with provocative, thoughtful slogans or giant lettering.  You will find that people will stop, and possibly buy if you can just get their attention!
