Banners support business in Lansdale
July 29, 2013 by Mark
Recently, two banner programs have got underway in the city of Lansdale, which are designed to bring more attention to local businesses.
Earlier this month, the PennSuburban Chamber of Commerce and the Lansdale Borough came up with a banner program to both help promote local businesses and celebrate the Chamber’s 100th anniversary. Running until October, the program allows banners to be displayed on light poles on Main Street. The banners are 4×2 feet and made of white vinyl to stand up to outdoor elements.
So far, 38 businesses have signed up to take part in the program including the Lansdale YMCA and the Culinary Arts Institute of Montgomery County Community College. At the time of writing, there are nine more spaces left.
As well as this, Memorial Park’s Weaver Field has a program in which local businesses and organizations can rent banner space for two-year periods. A 13 ounce vinyl banner which is tied down with grommets, and is 9 x 4 feet in size, costs $250 per year as part of a two-year contract. This not only helps to define the playing field, it also helps local businesses advertise in an unobtrusive way.
No doubt Lansdale printing companies have been helping with the design and printing of the banners, and they may see a rise in banner printing orders from businesses as a result. Both of these programs will no doubt be a boon to local area companies that might not be as noticeable to the citizens of Lansdale.
