What You Need to Consider for Outdoor Banners

Large banners are a great way to advertise a business or event. Whether it’s a sale, event, achievement or even a grand opening, banners can let the community know about it. Outdoor banners can get the attention of a large audience, who will then, hopefully, visit your business. Lake Printing offers state of the art digital printing for large format banners. Here are a few things you should consider before ordering your next banner:

Be Consistent with Branding
Make sure that your banner is concise with your business branding. Having a logo or a slogan on the banner is a good way to tie it back to your business. If possible, try to stick with colors and font that you use on all other marketing media.

Have a Purpose
What is this banner going to be used for? Have a strong purpose for your outdoor banner. Be concise and clear with the wording. Most of the time, people who see your banner will be passing by and not have a long time to read what is on it.

Have a Clear Call to Action
Not only do you want to have a strong purpose, but it is a good idea to have a clear call to action. What do you want your target audience to do after reading your banner? A website is an easy place to direct people to get more information about your business or event.

Location, Location, Location
Where will your banner be located? Who are you trying to reach? Will they be walking by your banner or driving by it? How big does it need to be in order for your target audience to see it? Also, make sure your design allows for mounting.

Think about Durability and Color
Outdoor signs need to be a lot more durable than indoor signs. Not only does it need to be a thicker vinyl than indoor signs, but it you need to think about fading. Bright colors will not only attract customers, but will still be readable during bright, sunny days and even cold, gloomy days.

Make it Simple
Have only one message on your banner. Outdoor banners are very different than indoor ones. Customers who see your banner indoors can take the time to read all the information, while those who see your outdoor banner may only have seconds to read it.

Choose a Legible Font
Font size and type is an important factor when creating outdoor banners. Your banner will not be very effective if people cannot read it. The distance between your banner and your intended audience will help you determine what size font will be necessary. Size isn’t the only factor in readability; a neutral font can help your audience read your message better.

3 Tips for Creating Effective Flyers

Flyers can be a huge and effective part of your business's marketing strategy if done right! Lake Printing has some excellent ways to make use of flyers that will blow your marketing strategy up in a good way! Check out some flyer marketing tips we have to make the most of your marketing strategy:


1. Keep it Simple.
Don't worry about making your flyer a work of art worthy of hanging in a museum. That's not the point of marketing. Your flyer should have a call to action, an offer if applicable, and be easy to read. While nice graphics are eye-catching, too much text, color and graphics can take away from the message. When it comes to flyers, simplicity sells.

2. Repetition Pays Off.
Being repetitive and consistent with your marketing is the only way it's going to work. You can't just pop out a flyer one time and expect for it to drive in customers immediately or continuously. While you may see a small incline in sales, chances are if you don't stick to it, that flow is going to die down. You've got to keep drawing customers in with new offers and messages, all while sticking to your brand so they subconsciously recognize your business. And if your flyers boast amazing offers, customers will look forward to your weekly advertisements.

3. Print for Impact and Longevity.
Have your flyers printed on Lake Printing's state-of-the-art printing presses using high-quality materials such as 100-pound gloss text or cover stock, 16-point gloss cover stock, or 13-point recycled matte cover stock. We boast top of the line Presses to handle projects of all sizes from wide format pieces to large runs. Our Prepress Department includes state of the art equipment such as an Epson 9900 Color Inkjet Printer and a Direct-to-Plate CREO Trendsetter to ensure that proofing requirements are met and your project is completed without sacrificing quality. Premium printing brings out the best in your design and also stands up better to weather and traffic.


Flyers make an immediate impression on a large number of people at any given time. They offer the unique ability to market a business with just one sales piece. And since they're economical to print and easy to distribute, flyers are one of the best and easiest marketing strategies for any business. Be creative and eye-catching, and your flyer will be primed for serious business. Lake Printing can help design a masterpiece flyer to best showcase your business and boost your business marketing.
