Outdoor Advertising Banners
The National Museum of the American Indian hosted a special two day art event featuring the work of over thirty Native artists -- including paintings, jewelry, pottery and more.
We recently made a fence banner for Boy Scout Troop 544 of New Hyde Park, and they were kind enough to send us a picture of their banner being used. Ace Banner has a few employees who were Boy Scouts so making this particular banner was a real treat.
This banner is an example of an appliqued banner and is finished with grommets.
These appliqued banners were made for Barnes & Noble's Manhattan flagship store. You will notice that the top of the banner is angled to match the angle the pole. This differentiates the banner from a flag. A custom flag installed on the pole in this photo would be rectangular in shape (no angle on top) because flags are expected to wave in the breeze; whereas a banner is expected to move somewhat, but remain open and readable. This is why most flag designs are very simple -- a logo or seal of some kind, a simple bold message.
These series of vertical banners were made for Advent Church. These are nice examples of advertising banners in that they announce the location of the church, and they make a great use of color. The contrast here is excellent. These are also examples of kind of banner install called 'top-bottom' poles. Banners installed in this way don't move in the breeze, so they tend to last longer. These sorts of banners tend to be narrow.
These appliqued banners are an example of using 'top and bottom poles' to secure the banners to a building. Most banners and flags use a simple outrigger setup which uses only one pole at the top of the banner.
Top and bottom pole installation cost more, but are suitable for longer banners that would not move well in the wind, or if you prefer a banner that requires less maintenance.
