Outdoor Pole Banners are the ones you see hanging from the side of lamp posts and street posts. The top and bottom of the banners are secured via pole pockets to rods affixed onto the poles with ties thru the grommets keep them from sliding off, or, if it is a large vinyl banner, finished with pole pockets so that it can be used in a parade or be a hanging banner.
Designed as small-ish vertical banners, these can add impact for your message in places that are sure to be noticed by pedestrians and drivers alike, or, if a larger size is selected, used when marching in parades.
If you are uploading a print-ready design, please create your artwork to reflect the finished size of the pole banner. We will make any necessary adjustments for the hem & pockets.
PLEASE NOTE: There are two ways to discuss pole pocket size:
1. The diameter of the pole over which the pocket will fit.
2. The flat-measure size of the pocket from the edge of the material to the seam.
Our default Pocket size is 3" Flat-Measure. This will fit over a 1” Diameter pole.
If you require a special pole pocket size, please write in the desired pocket size, OR the diameter of the pole it needs to fit on in the Notes of your order, and we will be happy to accommodate your request. Examples of how to enter notes for an order may be found here.
Below is a chart showing coordinating pocket sizes and pole diameters.
If you need to calculate a different pocket size, and you know the pole diameter, use this formula: (([π, Pi] 3.14 × the Diameter of the pole) + 2" for slack and sewing) ÷ 2 = Pocket size. Fractions always round up to the nearest inch.
For example, to calculate pocket size for a 2"-diameter pole:
3.14 × 2 = 6.28 + 2 = 8.28 ÷ 2 = 4.14" which rounds up to be a 5"-flat-measure pocket.
