How to Make Football Banners and Signs

Step by Step Instructions on How to Make a Football Banner

There are lots of ways you can use football banners. They can be used to display your football team rooster, your football schedule and at the game to direct people to the bathrooms or concession stands. But, how do you make a football banner? At Banners.com we make it easy to get a custom football banner. We have football banner templates already built for you to customize by adding text, clip art, backgrounds and photographs. To get started, go to our Football Banners page. 

Step 1: Choose Banner Size and Quantity
The first step is to choose your banner size and quantity from the drop down menu. You can get any banner size up to 16 feet by 50 feet.

Step 2: Choose the Banner Add Ons / Finishing Options
The standard finishing for vinyl banners is heat welded hems and grommets every 2-4 feet around the perimeter. Football banners are typically used outdoors at the games, so if the banner is over 32 square feet and you want extra durability, we recommend reinforced hems and reinforced corners. You can also get pole pockets if you want to hang your banner using poles (please note we can't do both pole pockets and reinforced hems or reinforced corners).
