How to Design an Effective Banner That Captures Attention and Boosts Your Business

Standing out is more than a goal—it’s a necessity. At Print’em All, we understand that every detail in your advertising materials counts toward making that memorable impression. Today, we’re here to guide you through the process of designing an effective banner—one that not only catches the eye but also conveys your brand message succinctly and stylishly.

Have a Core Message

Before diving into colors and fonts, it’s crucial to clarify what message you want your banner to communicate. Are you announcing a grand opening, promoting a special discount, or highlighting a new product? Your core message should be compelling and clear to anyone who glances at your banner.

What are the best fonts to use in my design?

When it comes to banners, less is often more. A clean design with ample white space can make your key message stand out more effectively than a cluttered, busy layout. Choose bold, readable fonts that are visible from a distance. Fonts like Arial or Helvetica offer excellent readability and are favorites for their professional appearance.

Can I use a lot of different colors in my banner design?

Colors play a pivotal role in how your message is perceived. High-contrast color combinations, such as black on white or yellow on blue, ensure that your message pops from afar. For a cohesive look, consider using colors that align with your existing brand palette which helps in reinforcing brand recognition.

Should I use a lot of photos of my products and services?

A relevant image or logo can significantly increase the impact of your banner. When selecting visuals, aim for something that supports rather than overwhelms the message. A single, powerful graphic can convey much more than several smaller images scattered across the banner.

How do I add a Call-to-Action to my banner design?

What do you want people to do after they see your banner? Whether it’s visiting your website, joining an event, calling you, or taking advantage of a promotion, your call-to-action should be clear and compelling. Phrases like “Visit us today!” or “Sign up now!” paired with an arrow pointing to your business are direct and effective. Make sure to include the telephone#, email address, website, or business address and that it’s clear and visible.

How do I Test my design to make sure it’s effective?

You can ask us! We’re happy to give you tips and pointers! The best way to test your design is to step back 5 feet away from your computer and see if you can read it. It’s like being in a car and seeing it hanging on a fence. More than likely, viewers will be at a distance, so this is a good way to mimic that. This will allow you to know if the fonts chosen are legible and the colors are contrasting correctly. Try the banner design example we came up with at the top of this blog.  Put it on the center of your screen and walk back as far as you can.  You’ll be able to see the cheeseburger, the fonts, the color contrasting, the logo, and the call to action which is the address and open hours. 

How long does it take to print?

After you’ve placed your order, you’ll receive an electronic proof within 1 working day. Once you have approved the proof, your banner ships the next business day!
