Frequently Asked Questions

1What information can go on the banner?
Information on the banners should be kept to certain items as there is limited space on banners. Photo, name, branch of service, major wars/conflicts, and one or two major awards received is what's most commonly found on banners. Ranks are often allowed but never in front of the honoree's first name. These banners are meant to recognize an individual's service to our nation and not necessarily all of their achievements and awards.
2What are the best photos to use?
A color or black & white photo of the honoree in their military uniform is always best. Do not crop the photo. Simply let us know if you want a portion of the photo to be cropped out and we will take care of it. Have it scanned in high-res and sent to us as a jpg with the maximum quality settings. (Click here for scanning details) If a photo of the honoree in military uniform is not available, a current photograph of the honoree wearing a veteran's or branch hat has been utilized. High school photos have been used as well, especially for those who served in earlier wars or perhaps were killed in action.
3How long will the banner last?
18-oz. Vinyl Banner, Matte Finish are extremely durable and withstand most weather conditions. Colors last over a year under standard sun and storm conditions. Like anything else, banners displayed outdoors for several months can begin to look "weathered". We recommend retiring banners after they start looking weathered and a replacement banner be ordered if you wish to continue displaying that particular honoree for an additional period of time.

• Save files at maximum print/resolution settings for JPG & PDF with the honoree's name (not dad's pic, scan1, etc).

NOTE: Photos from social media / websites are generally low resolution and should not be used if possible to ensure best results. You want the best results possible so take the time to find the best photo and have it scanned in properly. If you are not able to scan it yourself, enlist the help of a family member, friend, or your local photo place (Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, etc.) You will be happy that you did when you see the finished banner on display.
