I saw this post this morning. BuildASign (www.buildasign.com (http://www.buildasign.com)) offers 2x4 foot Custom Horizontal Vinyl Banner for $22.74. Coupon code "CINCO2012" drops it to FREE. With $7.45 for shipping, that's not too shabby. Thought I would share this info for someone looking for a cheap starter banner for competition.

I've bought two banners from them using similar offers and both turned out great!

I got one and it was horrible. The black background was a gray, the orange around my logo was fuzzy, and the even the white in the lettering was off. I ended up throwing it away after several failed attempts at contacting the company.

Maybe mine was made on an "off day" who knows.

Just got two. Hope they come out good. But for 8 bucks it should be fine. Well at least worth the 8bucks

Got one on the way. Well worth the extra 6.99 to have them put the gromits in too.

I've got one from them and it came out great. We used a very hi-res file though and it was a 2x4. The new one I ordered was 3x6 so we'll see if the larger size has any impact.

What sort of res/dimensions are you guys using for files?

I've got to see if my stone-age graphics skillz can make this work.

Sorry to hear that rich. Over the last 4 years, I have ordered three banners in three different sizes from them. All have been great on the artwork*. (I think I added the grommets myself on them, can not recall for sure but I have a grommet punch and think I did that myself.

*Granted, my artwork is pretty darn simple, but for "free" I have had no complaints. Those who have seen our competition set up can judge the quality of the banners. All of ours are from Build a Sign.

I can't recall the resolutions, but as I posted above, all our banners were created from MY stone age graphic skillz. In consistent with out mantra, they turned out pretty good, so I must have done something wrong.

The file I used was an EPS file about 1.4MBs. I *think* that's the best kind to use for graphics that are going to get enlarged. Hopefully someone in graphic arts can spill some knowledge about the best size and type of file to use for this.

I just ordered one, and I clicked on the button for the gromets, however I don't think it updated, and I've already completed my order and paid for it. Total was $13.21, so maybe they are included and just not listed on the invoice? :pray:

Appreciate the tip. I ordered a pair of 2x10s for the EZ-UPs; with clear tabs and rush delivery the total was about 80 bucks. Quite cheap, even if they only last a season.

I'm glad I could pass along the news and give so many people an opportunity to pick a decent banner at a cheap price. I found it on a website I frequent on a daily basis called www.dealnews.com (http://www.dealnews.com) The website is great and the app is even better. They pull out the greatest deals available almost anywhere and post them on there. I say the one on this banner and posted it for the Brethren. I'm super excited, my banner was shipped out and arrives tomorrow.

I have to be honest, I got my banner today in the mail and I was very happy with it. It is a quality banner and it turned out well. The color came out great and it's pretty good material from what I can tell. Don't know if this was an advertising gimmick for them, but they got my vote.

We got one several years ago and ordered another one a week ago, thanks to this Brethren site! We know we will be pleased because we were happy with the last one. Just can't wait to get it.

I spoke to them last week. They frequently have specials, and if you call them up and give them your eMail address, they'll gladly add it to their solicitation database to notify you of future specials....if you're into that kinda of thing.

When the code is available again for the sale where do you enter it in on the website?
