Create The Perfect Grad Banner

Before we get started, here’s a little information about Graduation:

  • In the 14th and 15th centuries, the cap and gown were worn to signify superiority and intelligence.
  • The tossing of the cap was a symbol of the graduates moving onto the next chapter in their lives.
  • About 4 million students are expected to graduate each year.
  • Americans are anticipated to spend $4.7 billion on graduation parties and presents each year.

How to design your graduation banners:

Are you part of the school? Then consider a congratulations to the class of 2019 banner. Include information about the graduation ceremony so that friends and family can be informed. Place in front of the campus or school so no one can miss it! Are you making the banner for a graduating student? Personalize the banner with his or her name, degree, and graduation year. A photograph of the graduate is also a nice touch. Your grad will be surprisingly pleased, and it will be easy for your guests to find the party!

Are you a business wanting to support community schools? Mention all the local schools in your banner and maybe offer a special promotion to the graduating class. This will create some foot traffic for new customers to be introduced to your business. Either way, be sure to incorporate your school's colors and logo. Add a fun saying such as “Congrats Grad!” or “You did it!” in your school colors then add your school logo to tie the banner all together and show your school spirit!

Where to put your graduation banner:

Use a Vinyl Banner Yard Sign to let all your neighbors know how proud you are of your graduate! You can always reuse the frame later for other events, such as yard sales. Easily place your Vinyl Banner Yard Sign into the yard and place the 13 oz Vinyl Banner over the frame with bungees. A 13 oz Vinyl Yard Banner is the best option when it comes to hanging a banner outside of your home. Your frame will last years to come for you to reuse for any occasion!

Using your banner to create a festive indoor display for your graduate? Choose a Fabric Banner! Fabric Banners are elegant and make any color or custom design pop! Hang during the graduation ceremony to congratulate the graduating class. Or use to direct friends and family to the ceremony or party. The options are endless with this indoor banner. Your message will look sleek and professional show casing your school colors.

Maybe you want to help direct traffic for your school's graduation event. Any of our feather flags will be useful to catch attention.

An Outdoor Banner Frame is the best long-term investment for your school. Reuse the frame each year to congratulate a new class of graduates. Place in front of your school for students and teachers to see as they are walking in. Outdoor Banner Frames are a great solution to hang any type of signage outdoors. Simply design multiple banners and switch them out throughout the years when needed!

Hanging your banner outside of your business? Heavy-Duty 18 oz is the best choice. If your sign is going to be submitted to the element’s day after day, you’ll want a durable option that stands up to the test. These heavy-duty vinyl banners are made to hold up well even in the toughest conditions. So, don’t worry if graduation day isn’t the weather you were hoping for!

Need something indoors that doesn't require intensive set-up or take up a lot of space? Congratulate the class of 2019 on a Retractable Banner. This also works as a great way to thank community sponsors for all the work they might have done for your school through the school year. Design your custom message to be displayed on your retractable. Then, simply pull the banner up and instantly catch attention with this vibrant and affordable sign!
