It’s hard to forget walking down the hallways of your high school. If you ponder it long enough, you can probably even remember the smell. School leaves a lasting impression on all of us, good and bad. At eSigns, we’re here to help you aim for the good impression.
One of the most fun ways to give your hallways a positive lasting impression is to decorate them with signs! Schools are built for learning and can often lack in the colorful, fun department. School hallway banners are a great way to turn your school’s interior from drab to awesome, and most importantly – memorable. We’ve compiled a few ideas to get your creativity rolling!
Students may not remember exactly what your face looked like, but they’ll likely remember the lessons they learned while sitting in your classroom. One standard assignment that comes to mind from school is the summer book reading program.
You know, the list of books handed out to students on their way out the door in May that they’re expected to have read before returning in August? If memory serves, you’ll be handing out a review and test during the first few weeks of school. Why not jog their memory on arrival with a few banners quoting important lessons from their reading assignment?
“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.” Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

Don’t be afraid to stand out amongst the beige interior around you. Let’s face it, hallways can be extremely boring on their own. Bright, colorful banners will add a pop of color to walls and lend the hallways a welcoming atmosphere without actually having to break out the brick, mortar, and paint. Think of yourself as an interior decorator, and vinyl banners as your decor of choice.
Directional Banners can always help new students find where to go. Imagine on the first day of high school searching for the Physics class in “B-Wing.” Emotions are high and you’re already nervous, but now you have to navigate across the school to find your class. How helpful would a fun bright banner with “Physics 101” be on it?
Also, combining a quote (as seen above) with a bright, fun color palette is sure to grab the eye. It’s likely your students will be walking down the hall looking out for the next banner to see what it says.
Use Your Mascot
Sometimes all you need to create excitement in a school is to bring the school mascot and colors into play. Strategically placing school-branded banners all over the school will create a sense of pride and unity. Printing an eye catching homecoming banner to help celebrate a school homecoming event is a perfect way to bring excitement to the student body, Feel free to include your school mascot, school insignia, and colors to personalize your message!
By using your school’s colors, you’ll give the students a banner to be proud of. Although, be sure to anchor it tight to your wall because we all know how fun it can be to run around with a school banner as a cape after winning a big football game.
At the end of the day, no matter what the class or subject, you’re all Tigers, Patriots, [insert your mascot here], and you’re striving for greatness! Show your school’s pride all over campus with spirited school banners that feature your school mascot, tagline, or logo.
