    I was looking around on craigslist and ran across this. Now you will have light up banners coming to a store front near you.

    I think that was on purpose. Doesn't want the guy to get any link love from the forum. The site is real. My favorite quote so far is
    So does anyone know what he is using to make these?

    That's the same guy who sells the Christmas window stencil kit and the do-it-yourself home sign shop kit www.75hour (dot) com

    My guess is he's using a cheap two-light fluorescent shop light, cutting black vinyl with a swivel blade x-acto knife and applying it to day-glo banner material, and wrapping the banner over the lens/cover that comes with the light. He mentions making 4 45° cuts so it's possible he's framing it out but that's really not necessary. That's all just a guess though (and works very well in the right situation)

    Man I wish I would have seen his 75hour web site before I bought all this expensive equipment and learned how to make signs and graphics.

    Actual ad and info from site.
    What a joke and people wonder why we get funny looks from people when we quote our prices for PROFESSIONALLY made signs.

    it seems more like a backlit sign box done half way... when i think banner i think outdoors on a lightpole or similar. We have a "light up" banner, though we call it an illuminated banner. It uses LED lights fine tuned to create a solid blanket of light between two banners. www.sky-banners.com
