Banner design - help required.

21 replies
Found 9th Feb 2010
I'm looking to order, via an online retailer, a vinyl/pvc banner.
The sort you see hanging outside pubs etc, advertising sunday lunches or quiz nites etc.

Anyway, it's going to measure either 5ft by 2ft or 6ft by 3ft and I need a basic design, black letters on a white background in MS comics font. The design basically consists of 3 words in capital letters, with possibly some music notes and/or a pic of a microphone or similar.

It is going to be used to advertise a fortcoming karaoke event.

The retailer is asking me to upload a design. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to going about doing such a design or better still - cos I am not too clever at this sort of thing - if any kind and clever techy/arty hukd'er can knock me one up then I would be oh so grateful.

Heeeeellllllpppppp!!!!

Hmm... Did you save it as a JPEG? Should upload...

I've got a few mins spare, I'll knock up a design if you want - planning to source images from Google.

Ok uploading now...

Ok, it's 600px by 300px

Would most likely need to be bigger if going to be blown up to 6ft!

But you get the idea:

Definitely not my best work, and having just blown it up to 6000x3000px, it looks like complete poo...

I think saving it as a jpeg is where I may have failed...miserably.

The design I am after is like this, only in bold comic font


KARAOKE
EVERY THURSDAY

With either music notes or a microphone or similar either side of the word karaoke.

Not very imaginative I know, but just tsomething visble and effective.

Most appreciated if you could help.:thumbsup:

See above. Will modify text now.

The issue is the resizing of the image... Did they say how big your sample should be?

Just checked - it doesn't actually say. just gives you the option of uploading or emailing over.

Any use? (I hope they are - Paint Shop Pro just crashed on me and I lost the templates LOL!)

Could remake if needed, but hopefully won't need to

No not at all.

This is great and very kind of you to take the time and effort. Rep left is the least I can do.

Just uploading it now. Its a bit of a last minute job for a job we've just taken on and I'm sure it will impress and keep them happy!

Many thanks again for this- much appreciated.:thumbsup::thumbsup:
