Lake Printing can create a banner that will grab the attention of your customers while being ideal for indoor and outdoor use. When you need eye-catching vinyl banners at the Lake of the Ozarks there are a few details you'll need to know to make your selection even better.

Selecting a Banner Size
There are many different sizes available when you purchase your banner, in fact, we can often work with you on specific requests. Here are a few of the most popular sizes:

2x4 - This size is ideal for indoor use, or in places where your customers don't need to see the information at a long distance. You could use it to promote a sale, or new product in your store, or hang it in your window for the window shoppers.
3x6 - This mid-size banner can be used indoor and outdoor. It is large enough to get your message across while hanging outside, yet not too big to be used indoors as well.
