X-banners offer a lot of advertising real estate. We recommend that the design is kept as clean and simple as possible. Details on these should be your brand name and logo and the key message, or offer, that people should know. You can add some contact details for people who want to look you up or save them for future use (website, telephone number and email at the minimum.)
For best results use professional graphic design tools such as Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator to get the best results. Make sure you use high resolution stock photos. Use our checklist to ensure that your design is print ready. Outsource to a design professional if you are uncomfortable with doing it yourself, there are a number of design services online that can find you an affordable designer. If you need any assistance, we can help by providing a banner template.

PVC stands for Polyvinyl chloride, it is very durable and dirt resistant – this makes your x-banner a perfect marketing product for reuse in any business situation, be it as a stand in your shop or a banner at an event.
The X-Banner Stand is a compact and durable stand. It sports graphite arms and aluminium legs. For easy setup, the pole mechanism slides up and is secured by the tripod base. Once done you can collapse it into one piece and carry it in the accompanying canvas bag.
What material is your x-banner made from?
We use PVC material to print our x-banners. This is a durable and dirt resistant material that makes it easy and possible to fold and unfold your banners for ongoing use.
What is “bleed”?
Bleed is the area around your artwork that is trimmed off. This allows your design to look as if it was printed to the edge, even when the cutting alignment was slightly off. Your bleed should always extend to at least 3mm.
Banners get their origins from flags or pieces of cloths that displayed symbols, logos, slogans and other messages. These were usually suspended from a pole or mounted onto a wall so they could be seen from a distance or carried on horseback. Today banners come in a variety of materials and advancements in printing have made printing elaborate designs easier. The X-banner is one beneficiary of these advancements as it is easy to carry, quick to set up, and can be reused in many situations.
