    I personally wouldn't call it a banner. "Window graphic" or "visor graphic". Just me. I also hate referring to web graphics as "banners"
    Anyway, if you plan to market several choices I'd say it would behoove you to make your own template. Find/know someone to lend you a veloster. Use transfer tape to wrap the bottom portion of the window then draw in the line with a sharpie, Pull it off and apply it to a rigid substrate then take a photo of it and then scale it in the computer and align your graphic to that. Use some scrap vinyl to run a few. Might need some tweaking here and there but once you get it you're golden.

    The right idea but too much work. Just tape a length of paper, butcher paper, wrapping paper, whatever, across the bottom [or the top or both depending]. Trace the curve and sides with a sharpie. Tape the resulting template to a wall, put a post-it** on the template, take a picture.

    Now comes the cool part. Import the photo into whatever software you're using. Draw a rectangle around the post-it. Map, power clip, whatever it's called on your software, the photo into the rectangle. Make the rectangle the actual size of the post-it. Unmap the image. Now you have a full size image of the template.

    **post-it or framing square or whatever you have that's square and of known dimensions.

    Uh...pretty much what I said.
    btw You can make yourself a little handy macro to quickly resize photos to scale. If you bring the photo in and draw a rectangle/square around your post it it will be at 100% now resize the shape to actual and make note of the scale percentage then select your photo and match the same percentage.
    2 part macro.
    1 to record the percentage and
    2 to scale the photo to the same

    Straight line from edge to edge. Measure bow from line. Bend in software to match bow.
