What are Pole Banners?

You typically see custom pole banners displayed between two poles on lamp or light posts along main roads, boulevards, and avenues in cities and in campuses. They’re made of sturdy, waterproof, and UV-safe 18 oz. vinyl that ensures your design lasts outdoors. Your display stays clear and visible under all weather conditions. It’s best to display street pole banners for your seasonal promotions of events like city celebrations, the 4th of July, parades, Thanksgiving, and the holidays.

Poles - Two Fiberglass poles with endcaps that are strong and durable for extended use.
Brackets - Two mounting brackets with accessories that are rust resistant and sturdy. Accessories include two pins with keychains that help secure the pole and two threaded screws for securing the grommeted banner to the mount with zip ties.
Steel Bands - Four steel bands that are rust resistant and adjustable to 47".

To allow for separate banner purchases the hardware kit is an additional option for banners with 2" pole pockets. 3" and 4" pole pocket banners do not include the option of a hardware kit at this time but can be purchased as stand-alone banners.

Product Specs

What are pole banners made of? Do you offer any other materials?

Our pole banners are made from 18 oz. vinyl. Vinyl is the best material for outdoor pole banners due to its durability. We don’t offer any other materials for custom pole banners.

Are your pole banners printed double sided? Is single sided available?

All our pole banners are printed double sided as this is the most effective way to deliver your message. We do not offer single sided pole banners.

Can I order a custom size?

We don’t offer custom dimensions, but you can choose from widths of 18”, 24”, and 30” with lengths that go up to 96”.

What’s the difference between pole banners, street pole banners, lamp post banners, light pole banners, avenue banners, light post banners, and boulevard banners?

There is no difference between the previously listed banners and pole banners. All these names are used interchangeably. If you’re still not sure, don’t hesitate to contact us to make sure what we offer is what you need.

What printing process is used for your pole banners?

We print our pole banners using a four-color digital printing method. This process results in a waterproof and UV-safe graphic.

What sizes are available for pole banners? Is there a minimum or maximum size?

We offer our pole banners with three different widths: 18”, 24”, and 30”. For each of these widths, we offer lengths every six inches from 24” to 96” long (i.e., 18” x 24” to 18” x 96”, 24” x 24” to 24” x 96”, 30” x 24” to 30” x 96”).

The minimum size is 18” x 24” and the maximum size is 30” x 96”.

What are the most common sizes for pole banners?

The most common sizes for pole banners are 18” x 36”, 24” x 36”, and 30” x 36”.

Can I order a custom size pole banner?

Yes, although the widths we allow are only 18”, 24”, and 30”. We also offer additional lengths other than the default of every six inches. We offer lengths every whole inch between 24” and 96”. If you need a custom length between 24” and 96”, please contact us.

Do you offer pole pockets on your pole banners? What sizes do you offer? Any restrictions or differences?

We offer two-inch pole pockets on our pole banners that fit hardware arm poles up to 1.25” in diameter. We also offer pole banners with three- and four-inch pockets. Three-inch pockets allow for hardware arms measuring 1 1/4” to 1 13/16” in diameter. Four-inch pockets allow for hardware arms at 1 13/16” to 2 7/16” in diameter. For banners with three- or four-inch pockets, hardware is currently unavailable.

What shape are your pole banners? Can I get a different cut or shape?

Our pole banners are standard cut to a rectangular shape. We currently don’t offer halo, contour, or any other cuts for pole banners.

Will my pole banners have seams or hemming?

Our pole banners are double-sided and printed on a single piece of banner material. This is known as single-ply printing. We also produce each pole banner with a pole pocket, with a default size of two inches. These pole pockets are hemmed two, three, or four inches from the top of the banner, depending on the pole pocket size you order. The result is pole pockets with two horizontal hem or stitch lines.

Do your pole banners have a matte or gloss finish?

Our pole banners have a matte vinyl finish. This finish is waterproof and UV safe, which protects the banner outdoors.

Are grommets available for your pole banners? Can I change where they are placed?

We include four brass grommets on each pole banner. These grommets are included at no additional cost and located above or under the pole pockets’ four corners. Grommets let you hang the banners with zip ties or similar fasteners. Note that the grommet positions aren’t customizable.

I see that you offer pole banner hardware but I only need a replacement banner. Can I get a banner without hardware?

We offer the hardware or pole banner kit as an additional option to the banner in the event that you don’t have pre-existing hardware or need a banner at a different length than your pre-existing hardware. Thus, if you are looking for a graphic without the optional hardware you may order a banner as a standalone item. We do not currently offer only the hardware or kit without a banner.

Lastly, only the banners with 2” pole pockets are available to be ordered with hardware or a kit. Banners with 3” or 4” pole pockets can not have hardware shipped with them at this time.

What comes in the hardware kit and what materials are these items?

Our hardware kit is available as an add-on with pole banners. If you want to order with the hardware kit, only banners with 2” pole pockets are available. Banners with 3” or 4” pole pockets cannot have hardware shipped with them at this time. The hardware kit contains two fiberglass arms, two cast metal mounting brackets, four steel bands, and accessories (2 threaded screws and 2 pins with key rings).

How thick of a pole or post is the hardware compatible with? Any restrictions?

Use the steel bands in the hardware kit to mount the brackets when securing hardware to a pole or post. These steel bands extend in length to 47”, which means the circumference or perimeter of the desired install pole must be less than 47”. If you meet this restriction, then there are no restrictions in where you mount the bracket and install the pole banner.

Can I order replacement or additional hardware as standalone items?

No. Currently we are unable to offer only hardware or the kit as a standalone purchase. The hardware or kit is only available as an option when purchasing 2” pole pocket banners.

What is the print area for your pole banners?

Our pole banners are printed within the area of your selected size. If you want a banner measuring 18” x 36”, you will be able to print your graphic within an 18”x36” area. This area includes both top and bottom pole pockets and should be factored into your design. If you don’t want to print your design on either of the pole pockets, add two inches from both the top and bottom of the pole banner.

Do you offer color matching for your banners?

We currently don’t offer color matching for our pole banners.

  2. Select your design file from your device. It should be in any of the following formats:.ai, .eps, .svg, .pdf, .jpeg, .jpg, .png, .gif, .bmp, .tiff, and .tif. We recommend you upload a vector artwork on the design tool.

Usage

What are the uses of pole banners?

Some common uses for pole banners are signs on light poles or lamp posts along main roads, streets, boulevards, and city avenues. They’re also commonly used to advertise at car dealerships and promote events, celebrations, and anniversaries for municipalities or college campuses. You also see them used for seasonal promos during the summer and winter holidays.

I have two different graphics. Can I put two banners on a single hardware arm, back-to-back?

The only way you can feature two graphics on the same hardware arm is having a double-sided banner. You cannot have two separate banners slid onto the poles and hardware kits. That’s why we recommend selecting the “2 sides different” option when designing your banners online.

Can I install my pole banner outdoors? Are they weather-resistant? Will it be damaged by a strong wind?

Yes, you can display the custom pole banners indoors and outdoors. The grommets let you secure the banner with zip ties in case of moderate winds. While weather conditions and general climate will affect the lifespan of your banners, they are produced to withstand prolonged outdoor use. The biggest potential problem for your banners is extreme weather. If such weather is imminent, we recommend removing your banners until the weather passes.

Is the pole banner hardware compatible with square poles or flat surfaces?

For maximum stability, we recommend installing your pole banner on a curved surface. However, customers have successfully installed pole banners onto square poles and other flat surfaces.

Will my pole banner fade? Will the graphic wear off?

Since our banners are UV safe, they are resistant to fading under direct sunlight. However, over an extended period in UV light, they will show signs of wear and tear. Thanks to our digital printing method, however, your graphics will not wear off.

Do you offer pole banners with wind slits?

We don’t offer our pole banners with wind slits. While there may be some benefit of doing so, the wind slits also make your banner less architecturally sound, more prone to ripping and tearing, and create less visibility on your graphics.

Can I reuse my pole banner?

Absolutely! Pole banners and their hardware are reusable. When not on display, be sure to clean them off, and store them rolled up, inside a hard container, or anywhere where no objects rest on top of them. We recommend storing them in a dry environment and away from items that may scratch or damage the banner material. Pole banners are usually intended for short-term or one-time use. In case you want to use them again, review your design for specific dates or times that may prevent you from displaying them again.

How long will my pole banner last?

Since these banners are exposed to the elements more than some of our other products, they typically have a shorter lifespan. But with proper installation and care, you should be able to use them for two or more years.

Installation & Care

How do I install my pole banner and hardware?

Follow the steps below for proper installation of your pole banner to the hardware:

  1. Enlist the help of another individual to install the hardware. Start with measuring the length of your banner and placing the mounting brackets against the post or pole. There should be a proper distance between the brackets based on your banner’s length.
  2. Fasten the mounts to the pole with the four steel bands. You’ll use two steel bands per mounting bracket.
  3. Once the brackets are fixed to the pole, you can insert each of the fiberglass arms in, one per bracket. To secure the fiberglass arms to the mounts, you will use the threaded screws, one per bracket. The pin with key ring will be inserted into the other hole on the mounting bracket and is used to attach a zip tie from the keyring to the grommet on your banner.
  4. After installing the hardware, you may start to slide the pole banner onto each of the extended fiberglass arms, sliding both the top and bottom portions of the banner onto the arms at the same time until the arms are completely covered by the graphic.
  5. To secure your banner to the hardware, fasten with zip-ties (optional) through each of the grommets on the graphic’s side of the hardware and loop the zip-ties through the pin’s keyring. Fastening the graphic to the hardware will improve the banner’s resistance to wind and keep it in place during windy conditions.

I want to have a dual banner setup. What’s the best way to get this look?

You can display two banners on the same pole or post. In order to achieve this look, you’ll need to order two pole banners and two sets of hardware. If you want the same graphic for each, you can simply add hardware as an option and change your quantity of banners to two before checkout.

You’ll install both sets of hardware but use a single steel band for mounting the top and bottom sets of mounts. Doing so will leave you with four extra bands once the installation is complete. This is only possible with 2” pole pocket banners as the 3” and 4” pole pocket banners are not sold with the optional hardware kit.

How do I remove my pole banner? How should I store it?

To remove your pole banner from hardware, reverse the steps of installation:

  1. Begin by removing any zip or cable ties, loosening the threaded screw, and sliding the banner off each of the fiberglass arms.
  2. To store the graphic, you should start by thoroughly cleaning it with a damp cloth. You may use a mixture of warm water and dish soap to create a cleaning solution for the cloth.
  3. After cleaning the banner and allowing it to air dry or wiping it with a non-abrasive cloth, roll the banner up and place it in a dry, cool place away from any direct sunlight or weather exposure.

How do I clean my pole banner?

To clean your hardware or pole banner we recommend using a mixture of warm water and dish soap with a damp cloth. Be sure to use a non-abrasive or microfiber cloth to prevent and scratching to the graphic. Gently wipe away dirt or dust on the hardware or banner and let them air dry.

My pole banner was crumpled when I took it out of shipping or storage. How do I get rid of these lines?

Wrinkles may occur during shipment and storage. To remove any wrinkles, unroll the banner and place it flat on a table outdoors on a warm sunny day. A few hours under the sun should ease any light wrinkles out of the material. Installing them and having them sit in the sun should do the same.
