How to Make Back to School Banners

Back to school banners are a great way to welcome faculty and students back for another school year. It's easy to get custom back to school banners from Banners.com! We have back to school banner templates already built for you to customize by adding text, photographs, clip art and backgrounds. To get started, go to our Back to School Banners page.

Step 1: Select the Banner Size and Quantity
The first step is to select the banner size and quantity from the drop down menus.

Step 2: Choose the Banner Add Ons / Finishing Options
Banners are finished with heat welded hems and grommets every 2-4 feet around the banner perimeter. You can also select to have pole pockets, reinforced hems and reinforced corners. If you are using your banners indoors, we do not recommend using reinforcements.The price will adjust when you select your options.

Step 3: Pick your Design Method - Templates
There are three different ways to order back to school banners: pick a template, upload a file or let us design. We will be discussing the "Pick a Template" method.

If you click on the clip art in the online designer a red outline will appear with 8 circle around the perimeter. You can re-size the clip art by selecting one of the 8 circles on the red line and moving your mouse. If you click "Ctrl" and drag the image it will keep its proportions. You can also move the image to the front or to the back by clicking on the up arrow or down arrow. The red circle will revert the clip art back to the original. The trash can will delete the image.
