What’s the Benefit of Light Pole Banners?
Effectiveness: Pole banners allow for maximum exposure of your marketing message to a passing audience of foot and car traffic. They are a form of hyperlocal marketing, meaning they are tactically placed to generate awareness among the immediate regional community. The more exposure the public has to your custom banners, the more likely they will attend the promotion or event.
Eye catching prints: Pole banners are typically designed with eye catching bright colors to grab the attention of the passing audience. Our banners are digitally printed using UV-Resistant inks for a vibrant, full-color finish. Some other benefits of digital printing include water-resistance, scuff-resistance, and fade-resistance to keep your banners looking new for an extended period of time.
If you don’t want to use the traditional rectangular design, consider using one of our many other available shapes, such as the triangle or the overhang; they are a great way to give your street-side advertising a flair that not many others have. This way, you’ll be more likely to draw visitor’s attention to your event.
Ease of application: Once the initial installation occurs, which includes installing brackets, poles, and flags, replacing prints is a simple and straight-forward process. This is especially handy if you are changing your banners frequently with seasonal and promotional messages.
Community: Not only do light pole banners give businesses and towns a simple way to showcase their brand and marketing message, they also are now such a familiar part of American culture that we’ve come to expect their presence as part of outdoor advertising campaigns in campuses, towns, and cities ranging from small to large.
Advertise Using Street & Light Poles
Great for advertising or other promotions, our street pole banners can be attached anywhere – telephone, flag, and light poles & lamp posts. Commonly seen during street fairs, parades, and festivals, they’re a great way to promote a company, event, team or school. Many towns and cities usually have a set of banners up and down Main Street and other busy roads.
A light pole flag doesn’t really need active participation – people can take it in as they walk by or drive by or stop and take the time to digest everything the banner is promoting. They’re much more effective than standard ads piped through television, radio, or displayed in a newspaper, which require active participation.
Choose Your Material
Choose from four different materials for your custom pole banners. These include: 18oz Vinyl, 23oz Vinyl, Outdoor Flag Polyester, and 300D Polyester.
18oz Vinyl: This is our most popular material option. This durable vinyl is designed for added strength and is perfectly suited for outdoor applications, even in harsh weather environments. Double-sided printing is available with this style vinyl. It is water resistant, UV-resistant, anti-curl, and 100% opaque.
23oz Vinyl: This is our heaviest vinyl option and is only offered by Vispronet. This style vinyl boasts the maximum tear strength and durability and is best suited for light pole banners installed the most extreme weather environments. It is 100% opaque, and double sided printing is available. It is water-resistant, UV-resistant, and anti-curl.
Outdoor Flag Polyester: This is our standard outdoor polyester, most commonly used on our custom flags and feather flags. It is designed to be durable, and for year-round outdoor use. This material has brilliant color reproduction but also is more transparent compared to our other material options. It is suitable for single-reverse and double-sided printing. This material is printed using dye sublimation, which has spectacular color reproduction but is not UV-resistant or completely opaque.
300D Polyester: This is the same material as our custom pop up tents. This heavy-duty polyester has a canvas like feel and is tear-resistant, flame-retardant, scratch-proof, and water-resistant. This fabric is printed using dye sublimation for vibrant color reproduction but is not UV-resistant or completely opaque.
Pole Banners for All Weather Conditions
All of Vispronet light post banner styles are designed with weather-resistance in mind.
Hardware: The hardware included with our street pole banners is built to withstand harsh weather elements. Our mounting brackets are crafted from rust-resistant cast aluminum that will support whichever mounting method you choose.
The included mounting poles are made built from aviation-grade fiberglass, to hold your pole banner securely in windy weather. All our banners are grommeted with brass grommets to further secure them and keep them anchored against the pole in windy weather conditions.
Hemmed Pole Pockets: Our pole banners come with double-hemmed pole pockets sewn by our expert sewing team for extra reinforcement in poor weather and windy conditions.
Reinforced Grommets: Grommets are added for extra reinforcement to ensure the banner will not tear or rip during strong winds and heavy storms. Our grommets are crafted to be extremely durable and completely rust free for the life of your banner.
Banners: While most of our competitors offer 13oz vinyl, Vispronet offer 18oz and 23oz vinyl among other material options. Both our 18oz and 23oz vinyl are extremely durable, tear resistant, and perfect for displaying outdoors. They are designed to be displayed all year round, whether that means summer or winter, rain or shine. All the vinyl materials we offer are designed to be water-resistant and UV-resistant so that they’ll look just as vibrant outdoors as they will indoors.
The blue scale (DIN 53387) test helps figure out a general assessment of both the material and the inks that we use for our pole banners. Each of our vinyl banners are rated 8 out of 8 on the DIN 53387 scale, so they’ll last several seasons in moderate sunlight.
Our pole banners are designed for hassle-free assembly on any lamp post or street pole. Attach the top mounting bracket to your pole at the desired height, then screw together with a drill or screwdriver. Thread the mounting arm onto the bracket, then follow up with the graphic itself, which can be secured with a zip-tie. Reverse the process to attach the second mounting bracket. Slide the mounting arm into the graphic, then attach the mounting bracket to the pole at the required height for a taut fit. Connect the mounting arm to the mounting bracket - and your lamp post banner is ready to go.
