Banner Designs that Start from Stock

Banner Header

Planning for tradeshow season can be a tall order. There are a lot of factors to consider -- from the proper message, to the number of signs you’ll need, to the goodies at your table that will help draw people in.

The last thing you need dragging you down is the dreaded lack of a creative breakthrough for a banner design.

Don’t fret, we are here to help! Not only have we made the ordering process stress-free with an incredible team of Customer Service representatives, but we’ve also backed it up with our Goof Proof Guarantee, which means it is okay to make mistakes.

However, we don’t think you will really need assistance after you see the tradeshow banner design ideas we’ve come up with for you. And, the most amazing part is they all started from stock designs!

Quality Design From Stock, Oh My!

Stock image websites are far more sophisticated than they used to be. Not only can you find incredible imagery for your tradeshow signs, but you can also even find templates for the exact product you need. Add your logo, colors, and text and you are good to go!

  • Need a retractable banner? Boom. Stock template.
  • Backdrop banner? Oh, hey! Stock template.

It’s as easy as click, download, and change out the text and colors. Though you will need Adobe Illustrator to manipulate these templates, all you will need to do is select the template you want to use, open it up in Illustrator, and then click the text you want to change.

Once designed, ordering is simple! Head over to and upload your file on our website. Just remember that prior to uploading, please flatten your artwork and convert your text to outlines if possible.

After your upload is complete, our eSigns team will take a look and let you know if any changes need to be made.

Here are some examples we’ve created to show you how easy it is to make amazing banners from stock images. Happy designing!
