The best size for a vinyl banner

1st June 2023

The best size for a vinyl banner depends largely on the purpose and location of the banner. HFE Signs offers a range of sizes, so you can choose the most appropriate one for your needs.

Here are a few considerations to help you determine the best size for your vinyl banner:

Location Where will the banner be located? If it's in a small shop window, a smaller size might be more appropriate. If it's going on the side of a building or across a street, you'll need a much larger banner to be seen from a distance.

  • Distance How far away will viewers be? The further away the viewer, the larger the banner and text needs to be to be seen clearly.
  • Content How much content will be on the banner? If there's a lot of text or complex imagery, you might need a larger banner to ensure everything is readable and clear.
  • Viewing Time How long will people have to view your banner? If they're driving by at high speed, larger text and a larger banner might be necessary. If they're walking by and can stop to read, a smaller banner might suffice.

HFE Signs offers custom sizes, so you can get exactly what you need. As a general guide, for banners meant to be read up close (2-3 metres away), a size of 8x3 feet could be suitable. For banners meant to be seen from a greater distance, like across a street or in a large open space, a larger size like 12x4 feet or even larger may be more appropriate.

Remember, the team at HFE Signs are experts in their field and can provide advice and guidance on the best size for your vinyl banner based on your specific needs. It's always a good idea to consult with them during your decision-making process.
