Welcome students, family members, and the military home with quality welcome home banners. Several vinyl materials are available for indoor or outdoor display to accommodate different locations. You can also find the perfect size for where you want to place your banner. We offer popular standard banner sizes as well as any custom dimensions. Your design is printed in full color using a modern digital printing technique with fade-resistant inks so that the graphics can withstand indoor and outdoor elements. Let someone coming home, like a marine or a soldier, know that you care with colorful, long-lasting banners.
We offer three customization methods to suit people with or without design experience. Each method receives a free proof via email before we print anything. Choose one of the following ways to personalize your banner:
Design Online: Our design tool is perfect for those with or without a lot of design expertise. In our tool, you can upload business logos, insert personal photos, and add different colors, clipart, and backgrounds to your banner template.
Upload Artwork Template: This option is ideal for those who prefer designing in a specific software program. You can download the banner template link to upload it onto your computer. Once you insert your artwork onto the template, save the file and send it back to us before or after placing your order.
Free Design Services: This option is for those who are unfamiliar with the whole design process or for those who do not know what to include in their design. Contact us and we will have one of our professional designers create your template free of charge. You will receive a free proof to review before we print your banner.
If you would like to setup your custom welcome home signs indoors, such as in a family room for someone in the military or in a school auditorium, we have two indoor vinyl options to choose from. We have either an Indoor Vinyl or an Indoor Opaque Vinyl. Both materials are durable due to their weather resistance and UV protection, but the Indoor Vinyl has a matte finish, and the Indoor Opaque Vinyl has a glossier satin finish. The satin finish offers a sleeker look, but it is harder to photograph.
For those who wish to place their welcome home banners outdoors, such as hanging from a building or in a front yard, we offer three outdoor vinyl materials. Two important things to consider when selecting your material is what kind of weather the banner will have to stand up to and how long it will be outdoors. If the banner needs to survive a lot of wind and harsh weather, there is the Mesh Vinyl, which is perforated so that the wind will not ruin the print. There is also the 18oz and 23oz Opaque Vinyl. These options are weather-resistant, and UV protected, but the 23oz option is for heavier duty than the lighter 18oz version. We recommend using the 18oz vinyl in calm outdoor weather.
How will your welcome home banners be set up? Do you want to hang them from the ceiling or place them on hardware? Figure out how you want to install the banner and select a finishing option that will help you with the process:
Grommets: These are for using bungee cords to hang your banner from a ceiling, across a wall, and on a banner post. Add grommets to the four banner corners or on every 1.5ft of material if the banner is long.
Ultra-Strong Adhesive Tabs: Tabs work the same way grommets do. You attach bungee cords to them to hang the banner from the ceiling or wall. Get adhesive tabs in the four corners of the banner or around the perimeter.
Pole Pockets: Use pole pockets to attach the banner to a stand that features pole sets. The pole slides through the pocket for a simple setup. Add pockets to the top of the banner or to the top and the bottom.
Hemmed Sides: You can get hemmed sides in addition to one of the above finishing options or you can get hemmed sides by themselves for setting up the banner without hardware. Hemmed sides are a durable choice because they prevent the banner sides from tearing.
Cut Sides: Another finishing option for welcome home signs is having the sides cut. This offers a clean finish for setting up the banner without hardware or placing it in a frame or on a canvas. Having the sides cut is perfect for light indoor use.
