When you mention the word “advertising”, one’s thoughts immediately turn to a modern office, full of graphic designers and copy writers, all running hither and thither trying to meet deadlines and so on. Few actually realise that advertising has been around for literally thousands of years.

It was certainly used in Roman times, and in ancient Arabia, and became more widespread when printing was developed from the 15th century onwards.

Advertising today accounts for a turnover of nearly $150 billion a year in the United States alone – it is big business!

Banner Advertising to Get Your Message Across

You will see a lot of banner advertising these days being displayed in places which attract large crowds – places such as exhibitions, displays, retail stores, and trade shows, and increasing use is also being made of this type of advertising at sports venues such as cricket and rugby matches.

The traditional banner is made of cloth or plastic material and is several metres long and a little under a metre high; even though they may also be the same shape, they are made different by being turned through 90 degrees, or even square shaped.

A banner should always be placed in a location where the maximum number of people can see it. There is an extensive range of banner-types types available in the market for use in the advertising of products and services, but portable banner stands are still one of the most common.

One of the most popular banner-type in Southern Africa is the teardrop banner, but electronic banner boards are fast-becoming increasingly popular at sports stadiums today.
