Design Guidelines

  1. Main Street banner sampleFor best visibility by passing motorists, banners should have very simple lettering and design.
  2. Do not use unnecessary text such as ordinals after the date (i.e., 12th, 22nd), complicated URLs, or long descriptions. A simple website address is more easily-remembered and can provide more information than a phone number.
