1st I would like to say thank you for all the advice I have received over my last few post on BBQ Comps… You all the best indeed!!!
“Question” what size Team Banner would you get for an E-ZUP 10 X 10 canopies?
I am Sooo pumped up for my 1st KCBS next month.

Okay, a real answer. I have and EZ-Up Enterprise II, with a logo on all four triangles on the top, and a back wall with the same logo. It has been to MANY events.

If you are looking to do a banner on the front, obviously ten feet wide is the maximum width, and then it is about making sure your banner does not block anyone's view -- and I'd recommend that it doesn't hit anyone in the forehead.

So, set your EZ-Up up at it's highest level, and measure up at least six feet. I would go more like six feet four. Then, see how much banner height you can get away with and still be able to secure it to the front of the EZ-Up.

You may want to go with a less than ten foot width, if you want to have some room to put some tension on the banner. If you knock just two inches off, you can use heavy-duty cable ties to pull the banner tight on your ten foot frame.

You can always go higher by strapping some uprights to the front legs of your EZ-Up that go well above your roof height.

Based on my EZ-Up, I'm guessing you can do a ten-foot-wide by somewhere between one foot and 18 inches high.

On a backside banner, you can do floor to ceiling, but anything below about four feet from the ground is not going to matter.

I hope this helps.

I went with a 4 x 8. At first I thought it was a little too big but now I think it is the perfect size.

Shiz I'd look at what fits your logo the best. I did 4x8's with ours. :thumb:

We're still hanging the same 3'x6' we got at the very beginning. We keep saying we ought to go 10' with updated graphics, but there's something kind of fun about remembering where we started.

You can make just about anything work with some creative bungeeing, so get whatever size suits your logo that you can find a great deal on.
