Breast Cancer Awareness Banners

How to Make Breast Cancer Awareness Banners in the Online Designer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you are having any events to raise awareness about Breast Cancer, you can use banners and signs. Here are step by step instructions on how to design Breast Cancer banners online. Go to our cancer awareness page to get started.

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 hems and grommets every 2-4 feet around the banner. We also have reinforced hems, reinforced corners and pole pockets.

Step 3: Pick a Design Method - Pick a Cancer Awareness Banner Template
There are three different ways you can order cancer awareness banners. You can pick a template, upload a file or work with a graphic designer. We will show you how to order a banner by selecting a template.

Designer Tip: If you click on the clip art or the text in the online designer a red outline will appear with 8 circle around the perimeter. You can re-size the clip art or text 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.
