Businesses use banners for a variety of purposes from office directional signs to event advertising. A variety of purposes also means a range of options, and anyone who has been tasked with ordering banners for their business knows the pricing can have a broad range. Global Signs and Printing has been creating banners for the Long Island, New York, business community for over two decades. Check out their list of five factors that affect banner pricing to help keep you within budget.
5 Factors Affecting the Cost of Banners
Because of the amount of ink and material required, larger banners come with higher costs. Depending on the situation, you may have no choice but to order a huge sign. If this is the case, you can use some of the remaining factors to mitigate the cost.
Material choice, in combination with size, can drive your price up quickly. For example, aluminum is much more expensive for the maker than paper; therefore they must charge more for banners made from it.
Intricate designs, particularly those involving many colors, tend to be more expensive. If you’re working on a tight budget, consider a crisp, two-color design to reduce costs.
4. Cost & Quality Control
Ordering from a distant company, versus ordering from a locally-owned business, gives you less control over not just the pricing, but also the quality. By ordering from a store near you, you’re afforded the opportunity to sit down with a person to discuss your requirements. In doing this, revisions to your design can be made to allow for costs that fit your budget while still supplying you with a quality banner.
When placing banners away from your business location, you may have additional fees, such as a county permit or paying the owner of private property to place the sign. These typically forgotten costs can be factored in to avoid going over budget after banners have been purchased.
While banners can be a substantial business expense, they’re worth the cost if they attract customers. Global Signs and Printing can produce what you’re looking for, such as business cards and brochures.
