3 Types of Outdoor Banners

Outdoor banners can make a great addition to your displays. They are eye-catching and a good way to get your brick-and-mortar store noticed. They also increase brand recognition and will make your customers more aware of your products and services. Not only are they cost-effective, they’re very durable and very easy to install.

Most banners are made of vinyl, whilst their frames are often aluminium. These materials allow them to be lightweight, making them easy to transport. Whilst outdoor banners may seem like a straightforward concept, you’ll be surprised to know that there are different varieties to choose from. Here are a few examples:


Teardrop Banners

They are shaped by its name. They’re quite versatile, as they can be used indoors or outdoors. Their shape and construction allow them to be effective banners, even without the help of wind. They’re best displayed on calm, cloudy days. Usually, these are printed with unique, eye-catching designs. This is the most common type of banner. It is used widely because it allows the design to be seen in any direction.


Vertical Banner

This type is a no-nonsense, straight to the point banner. Vertical banners are great for windy days, as they can show the printed design easily despite the breeze. The wind also helps make the design a bit more eye-catching, which is why they’re mostly used outdoors. They’re usually seen in special events such as sports games, or as flags. It’s a versatile banner.


Feather Banner

Feather banners are a good mix of vertical and teardrop styles. They’re quite like a vertical banner, with a curved top. It also works very well in the wind but looks great on cloudy days as well. It gives a good balance of space and durability. They are designed to immediately catch the attention of passers-by, with their unique design.

Also known as the bowhead banner, display banners or flex banner, you’ve probably also seen these in outdoor events. They’re best to use in wide, open spaces as they’re easily seen from afar.


Pull-up Banners

They are great if you want mobility in transporting them to several locations. If your business sets up location in several areas, this is the banner for you. It’s built with a retractable mechanism that allows you to hide the cartridge inside the mechanism. This allows for easy transport. The mechanism protects the banner from dirt or damages.



Wall Banner

It is the most common type without a stand. Other types need to have an eye-catching logo or design. This banner, however, only needs one or two words in bold font to attract your attention. If you’ve ever seen a “FOR SALE” sign outside the garage, you know what a wall banner is.


Outdoor banners are a great way to advertise and market your business. They are versatile and can effectively advertise a product or create brand recognition. If you have a brick-and-mortar store, your display outside should never be without one. They’re easy to maintain, are cost-effective and can really draw passers-by to your business. If you’re looking to invest in banners, Real Estate Flags and Banners can help you with your marketing needs.
