Design guidelines

  1. Main Street banner sampleFor best visibility by passing motorists, banners should have very few words and a simple design.
  2. Use high-contrast colors. Light-color text such as yellows and golds do not show up well unless they are on a dark background.
  3. Don't use unnecessary text such as ordinals after the date (i.e., 12th, 22nd), complicated URLs, or long descriptions. A simple URL is easier to remember and can provide more information to motorists than a phone number. 
  4. A final rendering, final proof, or photo of the final banner must be submitted with the date request form. Banners will not be approved without the final example.

Banner construction

  1. Banners must be constructed of 18-oz. scrim vinyl, capable of withstanding most weather conditions that may exist such as high wind, rain, hail, snow, etc. Wind slits or flaps must be placed throughout the banner. 
  2. All banners must be 30 feet wide and 36 inches high.
  3. Banner must be hemmed on all four sides.
  4. Banners must be supplied with reinforced metal grommets on all four sides through the hem (two layers of vinyl). Grommets on the long edges must be spaced approximately 12 inches apart starting at the corners. There must be three grommets on left and right side, at the top, center and bottom.
  5. Any banner that becomes torn or in any way deteriorates and becomes unsafe will be removed at the sole discretion of the city.
