What Makes a Good Graduation Banner?

So if you're looking for a high-quality graduation banner that will be the hit of the day, check out our grad banners that will sure be the talk of the party!
Graduation days go on, come rain or shine. That's why you need a graduation banner that can stand up to it all. So before you buy, make sure your personalized graduation banner is weatherproof.
This is especially important if your graduation banner is hung outside. This is not only essential for withstanding rain and weather, but also for cleaning. Waterproof material can quickly be washed without tarnishing the print if the banner gets dirty outside.
When you customize a banner with your child's name, school colors, and photo, you want it to look great. However, the sun's harsh rays can discolor and damage low-quality materials. And no one wants a bleached-out photo come graduation day.
If your banner will be outside or near a window, it needs to be UV-ray protected. That way, it will look fresh and vibrant from delivery day until you take it down.
Graduation from high school or college is a joyous occasion — and that’s why we make sure our banners are printed with only the highest quality ink to make sure the colors of the banner are super vibrant.
High-Quality Grommets (Material and Placement)
Grommets are the holes that allow you to hang your graduation banner. They may seem like a minor detail but are vital for correctly hanging and protecting your banner.
If grommets aren't correctly applied, then a rope will pull up, while the banner's weight will pull down. This could cause damage to the material, cutting short the life and quality of your banner.
You'll also want to make sure they're conveniently located on the banner. If your grommets are only at the corners of a large piece, this could cause undue stress on the material and make it harder to fasten securely, especially for cars. With our banners we ensure that the grommets are placed every 2 feet to ensure perfect hanging.
We understand how important this day is for your grad so we make sure to provide previews 1-2 days after receiving your order so that you can make sure the grad banner comes out perfectly.
Order Your Own Graduation Banners Personalized
Of course, you can walk into any party store and get a sign that says “Graduate”. But if you want your student to know how proud you are of their accomplishments and even let the whole world know, generic just won't cut it.
When you get graduation banners personalized, you're making a memory. These are the centerpiece of any graduate's celebration, and they will remind you of that special day forever.
