Custom signs are an effective marketing tool. However, signage can be a significant financial investment. So, you should find the most cost-effective way to produce custom signs that deliver results. 

Vinyl banners are a good option here. They pay for themselves fast and help reduce your long-term signage costs. How do they do this?

1. Vinyl Banners Cost Less

The costs of custom signs partly depend on their materials. If you use more expensive woods, metals, composites, foam boards, or plastics, then your order costs will be higher.

The vinyl used in banners is one of the cheapest signage options. Your material costs will be lower without sacrificing any print quality.

2. Vinyl Banners Last Longer

If you want banners that you can use permanently or repeatedly, then quality matters. You want solutions that will stand the test of time and look good for longer. 

Don't assume that paying for more expensive materials is the right solution here. Sometimes, high-cost banner materials don't have the longest working life. For example, corrugated plastic banners can get damaged in the wind if you use them outdoors. The banner might bend, crack, and look battered with too much weather exposure.

If a banner looks shabby, then this reflects badly on your store. You might have to replace banners regularly to make sure you project the right image.

Vinyl banners typically have a longer working life. They aren't affected by weather conditions. Vinyl is a lot harder to damage than other materials. Your banners also won't fade in the sun or get waterlogged. Plus, these banners are easy to clean. You can wipe them down to get rid of dirt and dust without having to worry about damaging the printing or the material itself.

So, with vinyl, you can use your banners for longer. You get a more cost-efficient purchase.

3. Vinyl Banners Are Versatile

If you want to use temporary signage that you can switch from place to place in and outside your store, then you might have to buy different banners in different materials. For example, you might need some banners that can work outdoors. You might need banners that can hang from poles and some that can hang from the ceiling.

The more banners you buy, the more you pay. However, if you invest in a few vinyl banners, then they can meet all your signage needs.

Vinyl banners are versatile. You can use them indoors and outdoors. You can hang them off ceiling hooks, on posts, on walls and windows, and on ground frames. If you put general sales and marketing messages on your banners, then you cover all your signage needs at a lower cost.
