Designing your Marching Banner: 
Today most of our marching band banners are dye-printed. However, there are two options of construction available.
 
  1. The easiest way to get started is by picking out a design template from our listed collection. View design templates here.

    We have 35 design templates to choose from which serve as suggestions. Any of our templates can be altered upon customer request. Some of the templates feature scallop-cut bottoms, while others have straight-cut bottoms; some have borders, and some have no borders. Choose your favorite; Imagine the possibilities.

  2. Choose Sewn and Appliqued or Dye-sublimation as your construction method. Unsure of the difference? That's okay. Click here to learn more about the different construction methods.

  3. Choose the colors for your layout. You can view our nylon fabric color chart here, or you can provide us the PMS color reference number(s) that you wish to match. Note, we try to match pantone colors as close as possible. With a nylon sewn and appliqued banner, the more colors you choose, the more complicated the layout becomes and this can affect price. With a printed banner, the number of colors you choose is irrelevant - your banner can be as colorful as you wish without a price penalty. 

  4. Choose one of our mascots or submit your own art file. We have a huge collection of vector mascots and symbols that can be integrated into your banner layout. Among the collection are common animal mascots as well as fire and rescue related symbols. Click Here to view the full collection.

    If you have your own mascot or logo that you would wish to use, please submit the art file by e-mail. Our e-mail is sales@aristaflag.com

    Please note that all art submitted to us needs to be in vector outline format for production.

    Acceptable File Types are:

    CorelDraw - Up to Version X3 (.cdr or .cmx)
    Adobe Illustrator - Up to Version CS5 (.eps, or .ai)

  5. Think of the lettering you want on your banner. What do you want your banner to say? In general, for school marching banners, the banner will read something like "School Name", "Team Name", "Location of School / Team", and sometimes included is "Common Quote or Team Phrase".  It all comes down to personal preference - What makes you look the best / what will represent you the best?

  6. Choose finishing options. Such options include things like: Do you want fringe on the banner, and if yes, what color?  Do you want a frame sleeve on the banner along with your pole-hem? Again, this comes down to personal preference.  Click Here to view some of our marching banner accessories and finishing options.
