FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1) Aren’t all advertising banners the same?
NO! This is one of the biggest misconceptions in the industry. There is a significant difference in quality between many of the banners on the market. Some of the features that distinguish our banners as being the best are:
We print on an all-weather, treated polyester fabric
Double Stitching on all seams
Quick Connect device for easy mounting and dismounting
True Tapered top poles that are guaranteed
UV treatment for sleeve and fabric
Heavy Duty Canvas carry bag with padded pocket for stake
All mounting options have ball bearing spindles that allow the banner to rotate freely
Metal rings at pole ends to prevent poles splitting
Pole internal to sleeve keeping skin taught and reduce ‘flapping’
High flex, omni-directional fiberglass rods that are guaranteed
2) What are the advantages of True Double Sided print?
Dagmar pioneered the True Double Sided concept. With a Single Sided banner, we print on one side and a mirror image can be seen on the reverse side. This is something some manufacturers call ‘double sided’.
With True Double sided printing we print on two specially treated pieces of fabric. The treatment makes the fabric opaque, meaning the designs on each side will not show through or interfere with each other. As a result, you can even have different designs on each side.
True Double Sided is available for the Tear Drop Banners, Tension Wing Banner, Tension Feather Banner, and Ex-Discs.
3) Why aren’t there prices for your products on the web site?
As with most printing scenarios, there are several factors that will influence the price of our products. These include: quantity, print type, mounting options, etc. In order to provide accurate quotes and make sure you are not paying for something you don’t need, we prefer to get as much information as possible first.
4) How long do the banners last?
This is a common question, but one that does not have a simple answer. The main factors determining the life of any banner are exposure to sunlight, pollution, and wind. Other factors are the colors on the banner and the actual design of the banner. The extreme case is a banner left out 24/7 on a busy road in a hot climate. We have seen our banners in these scenarios last between 12-18 months.
5) Is there a minimum order quantity for your products?
No. We can print 1 or many banners and you are always assured of the Dagmar Branding quality.
6) How long will it take to receive my banner(s)?
It can depend on the quantity and the banner type, but generally you should receive your banners in about 2 weeks from the date the art is approved and the order is placed.
7) What formats are your templates available in?
All our templates are available in Adobe Illustrator format.
8) What applications do you work in?
We work exclusively in Illustrator and Photoshop CC.
9) Do you work with MAC or PC files when preparing the artwork for your banners?
We work with PC computers. Generally, we can accept art files from both MAC and PC unless fonts are involved, in which case we recommend that all fonts be converted to paths/curves/outlines for us to use them properly. MAC fonts cannot work on PC computers, so please do not send MAC font files to us.
10) How does Dagmar Branding accept digital files?
The best way for us to use your files is for them to be uploaded via We Transfer linked on the Upload Art page. Anything 10MB or less can be emailed to us. Please read the Art Guidelines prior to sending us art.
