1. Know the size
You can’t just blindly go on designing software and start designing your banner without knowing what size you will print your banner later on. If it turns out that the banner material or PVC stock available and your design does not have the same size, then it won’t look nice once it gets printed. You have to design with the same dimensions as the available banner material for accurate printing and high quality banner. It is also important to make sure that the banner size you want suits the location of where it will be put up after printing.
2. Keep it simple
Try not to overcrowd the banner with too many design elements and ornaments. Make the content simple and straightforward so that everything can be easily understood. Putting in too many things may also result in inefficient printing because you will only waste resources, mainly ink, and get an ineffective banner that can’t reach the target audience well. So always make sure that as you design, the content of the banner is focused straight to the point yet interesting and attractive. Then, put decorations accordingly, keeping it to a minimum instead of going extravagant with it all.
3. High resolution
The design and images inserted into it must all be of high resolution. To know if it is of high resolution, you can check it and see if it is of at least 300 dpi. This is the ideal resolution to work with for large size printing especially, such as banner printing. High resolution images can retain its quality even when printed on large surfaces like banners and result in sharp, beautiful images as a result.
4. Work in CMYK
The default of designing software such as Adobe Photoshop or CorelDraw uses RGB colors. However, you have to know that the printing process uses ink that mixes CMYK colors instead. If you design in RGB and later on print in CMYK, there might be some colors that don’t look like the way they are shown on the monitor. This is because RGB colors tend to be brighter and results in color inaccuracies when printed using CMYK inks. You have to always remember to design in CMYK colors as well. Or, if you already design it in RGB, convert them into CMYK colors for a more accurate printing process and result.
