How to Select Your Church Banners

How to Select the Church Banner That is Right for You

Define your Banner Goals:

The first step to deciding what you need is to define the goals that you have for your church or organization. Here are a few sample goals that may help you define your needs:

  • Teaching or enhancing a sermon or lesson. Church banners are great visuals that add depth and meaning to your lesson or sermon.
  • Seasonal decorating for Thanksgiving, Advent, Christmas & Easter
  • General auditorium enhancement
  • Invite, welcome and direct visitors
  • Creating an entirely new worship space in a non-traditional setting
  • Special occasions such as church dedication, anniversary, etc.

Once you know where you want to go, it will be easier to find what you need.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • Where will the banner be displayed?
  • Will the banner be used indoors or outdoors? Most of our banners are suitable for indoor/outdoor use. 
  • What are my space requirements or limitations?

    No idea what size you need? View our Banner and Stand Size Chart Here. PraiseBanners™ offer a variety of stock banner sizes from 18” x 5' up to 8' x 12' and 5' x 15'. We can create Custom Banners as well to fit your size specifications.

    To get the best visibility possible from all vantage points, take a good look at your auditorium or worship space from several angles. Find a point of reference like your podium and measure the size. If you are still not sure here are a few things you can do:
    • Cut large paper in different sizes and tape it up in your worship space to see how it looks.
    • If you are familiar with image editing software, take some pictures of your space and create swatches for placement. Use other items in the space for size reference.
  • What colors should I choose for my banners? If your church follows the Liturgical Calendar and you want banners to coincide, follow our Liturgical Color Guide. Otherwise, color is a matter of personal preference with considerations of how your banner will look in your church.

Banner Hanging Options:

We offer four types of hanging options:

  1. Pole Hems - this is the most versatile type of hanging option as you can hang the banners on a stand or on brackets placed on a wall.
  2. Grommets - grommets are placed on each corner of the banner. These types of banners require an X-banner stand.
  3. Retractable Banners & Stands - these banners are great for transporting and setting up easily. The banner is actually made into the stand.
  4. Tube Display Banner & Stands - sleek and modern, these pillowcase banners slip over the top of the stand for a clean look. Get almost any banner design on our website created to fit our tube display stands. Double sided option available.
