    I have a small project that I am doing for my Fire Department Hall. I have volunteered myself to create a temporary (9-12 months) sign for out front. They asked for a Banner but I am wondering if Scooter Board or similar would be better. I have thought about vinyl or painting the sign depending on which way I go for substrate.
    I am doing this for free since I am a member of the department.

    Need more information just post away I will answer.

    Thanks

    Are you digitally printing banner ?

    We have banners out there that are 2 yrs.+ and still look a good as new...they were printed on solvent based Mimaki JV3.

    Hope this helps...

    No digital printing, just banner and vinyl.

    If it's truly going to be temporary scooter board isn't a bad choice and should be fine with cut vinyl. How big are we talking here?

    I know in my area - even for the Fire Dept - you'd be hard pressed to permit a banner for 9-12 months. And how were you going to hang the banner? Is there some kind of structure already there?

    More info please :smile:

    OK on Scooter board.
    The Fire Department was volunteer and we recently transitioned to a paid part time staff. So the Inc. side of the Fire Department had to move out of the offices and other assests. We purchased a building that use to be the VFW cleaned it up and all. The probelem is the building has a brick fascia that the letters VFW are inlayed into the pattern. The size is about 30in high by about 6ft long.

    Thanks
