In late March of 2012, Sue Westerman with the Chokio Community Club contacted us about purchasing custom street banners but had concerns about the total cost for the project. One of our customer service representatives, who have experience working with cities and towns on a budget, recommended our Sponsored Custom Street Banner Program as a solution. She explained to Sue the benefits to the local businesses as well as the city itself. Businesses sponsor the custom banners in exchange for advertising space, enabling an attractive display that promotes both the town and local business. In most cases the city chooses to purchase the hardware for a coordinated visual effect, boosting pride in the community. She took the quote featuring our 18oz Digital Vinyl Street Banners with the suggested fundraising program directly to the decision makers. Within a week or so Sue came back with approval and commitments from 25 local businesses and organizations!
"The Sponsored Street Banner Program worked perfectly with the support of our local businesses and organizations to help our city achieve the overall look we wanted even though we were working with a small budget!" -Sue Westerman
Eager to get started on the template that would include space for the sponsor’s information, Sue and the members of the committee chose the aspects of Chokio they wanted to include on their banner design, a historic photo, basic text, and bold background color. Robyn, a committee member and graphic artist, used all the elements to create this amazing design that really encompasses the community and can be displayed anytime of the year. Our graphics team made sure that the size of the design and position of the 25 sponsor names would print clearly!
