How to design file in correct?
Before using our service, there are certain important things should be considered. First and foremost, it is more convenient for both us, and you as the purchaser of a vinyl banner, to make sure you are aware that we print using what’s called the CMYK color model. Most professional level image editing software, free or commercial, will give you the option to save the image you want to use for your banner in this format. If however you send it to us in RGB format, we will have to convert it ourselves and there may be a noticeable change in the character in the image which you may not find desirable. This is why it is important for you to take care of this step yourself; it’s a way to make absolutely sure that you get exactly what you are expecting. One more easy but important step you should take before you begin your layout, often skipped over, is to physically measure the dimensions of the area you want to cover with your banner. If you estimate, there’s a pretty good chance it won’t be quite as close as you would like it to be. Once the banner is made it’s yours, so do yourself a favor and take the extra time to get the correct numbers. This will make mounting more predictable as well.
Now that that’s out of the way, I’m sure you’re ready for some tips about how to lay out your banner. While some or all of these ideas may not exactly be new to people, it can never hurt to have them refreshed in your mind before you undertake a project that you have an investment in.
Remember to design banner in clear way.
While it’s likely you will want to create a sign as unique as possible, and you should, remember to keep in mind that excessive complexity, or a sign that it “too busy” may be too much for the average person to absorb when they walk by. For example, instead of having a number of equal sized sections of information or images filling your banner, you should establish a main focal point to grab people’s attention, then perhaps smaller but still very visible contact information if it’s necessary. Finally any detailed or supplemental information should be off to the side or bottom of the banner, or wherever it fits without distracting attention away from your focal point. Get the main message and theme across clearly to the person walking or driving by, and if they are interested they can take a second look or come back later for the additional information. Crowding your banner with text can make it hard to establish a natural flow for the eye to follow, so say what you need to say succinctly as possible. Obviously these are just guidelines, and you should feel free to experiment with different ways of presenting your idea or information visually.
The best colors to choose
Color choice is another very important thing to consider when formulating your new design. Don’t use colors that conflict with the mood you’re trying to express, and instead find hues that will accentuate the theme you have chosen.The combination of red and green will remind people of Christmas. Red by itself can give one the feeling of intensity or heat, yellow or orange can put people on alert, and greens can encourage a relaxed feeling. In this vein, the importance of contrast should be duly noted. Make your focal point and information stand out with definition between colors, light, and dark.
What information is the most important on the banner
Should you have some sort of contact information you want to display, such as a phone number or web site URL, it would be a good idea to make it as readable as possible as many different ways that you can. Is your sign going to be visible from a high traffic road? If someone’s taking down a phone number at a stoplight they won’t have long to do it, so make sure that your font isn’t something so unfamiliar that it’s difficult to read at first glance. Be sure to make whatever information you put on the sign as large as possible while still maintaining a balance with the focal point of your image.
How to make a perfect design?
If you want to be sure you’ll be happy with your work it would be wise of you to create multiple drafts of the image you choose to design. Show them to other people, if possible; their input can be very helpful. You’ll almost certainly notice some things you wouldn’t have otherwise, and after all, your banner’s intended audience is generally going to be as broad as possible. Get as many perspectives as you can from fellow employees or friends, and you will grab the attention of more people.
If you’re just starting out, keep these various tips in mind and you’ll find yourself well on your way to having an effective and visually appealing vinyl banner, ready to proclaim your message to the world!
