For standard banners (ie hung with rope, bungees, etc), there are usually a few options for thicknesses, I like to err on the side of durability and try to go for the heavier gloss vinyl (good for outdoors and easy to clean), hemmed (sewn) edges, with grommets in the corners (your dimensions could probably also use a grommet center top and bottom). Depending on what you need it for there are also options for retractable stands, etc.

High resolution bitmaps work too, usually export the whole thing as an EPS, just double-check file requirements with the printer before you submit. Hope that helps?  Molly

>>> I am wondering who has designed their own banner for their business and if you just used a template or you actually designed one. I would like to get a 2.5’ x 6’ banner and looked at Vista Print but I am not sure. Would this be a pain to do in Photoshop/Illustrator? I want a design that I will carry all the way through my promotional materials (i.e. business cards, postcards etc…) I am also going to be upgrading my website too.
