Your Guide to Wholesale Banners

At Printastic, we know that a large portion of our customer base is small and medium-sized businesses looking for single banners to help their business grow. However, there is a whole additional side of the banner landscape that we service that doesn’t get quite as much coverage: wholesale banners. 

Wholesale banners are exactly what they sound like: banners that are ordered by companies at a large volume and sold for a discounted rate for wholesale use – and it’s one of our specialties.

Our wholesale banner program couldn’t be simpler. We offer organizations, businesses, franchises, and manufacturers the opportunity to order large volumes of high-quality vinyl banner printing at a price they won’t find at your typical one-off banner printers. That’s what makes our wholesale banners unique.

The many benefits of Wholesale Banner purchasing from Printastic

Do you think that wholesale banners might be right for you? Here’s our guide to what makes wholesale banners an ideal choice for large volume orders.


Pricing and Payments 

The first question anyone asks when it comes to businesses purchases is “what’s the price?” Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered right upfront.

Our wholesale banners are priced at just $1.50 per square foot, which makes them extremely economical for even the biggest orders. This unique pricing structure makes banners of any size more affordable in large quantities.

We also offer special payment options for our wholesale customers as well. We currently accept a full complement of credit and debit cards including Visa, Mastercard, and American Express, and we also accept online payments via PayPal. We can also work directly with your organization to arrange payment by company check.

Print Quality

As with every product we offer at Printastic, our wholesale banners are printed in the highest possible quality on the best possible material.

For our wholesale banners, we utilize the latest latex print technologies to craft single-piece banners up to 10’x50’. These large printing systems allow us not only to print in extremely high photographic quality but also turn around orders much faster than any other banner printer on the market today. 

Shipping Options to Meet Your Priorities 

Whether you want your entire order of wholesale banners shipped directly to you, or you have agents or locations across the U.S. whom you’d like to ship directly to, our shipping department makes it easy and fast to get your wholesale banners into the hands of exactly the right people as quickly as possible.

Free Super Saver Shipping

If all of your banners are heading to the same place (e.g. your corporate headquarters), our wholesale banners will be shipped free thanks to our Super Saver Shipping Program – making your order as efficient and affordable as possible.

Blind Drop Shipping

If you have multiple franchise locations or varying corporate destinations for your order, our shipping department will help by offering blind drop shipping services for just a small shipping and handling fee. All you have to do is provide us with the addresses and quantities, and we’ll drop ship your banners directly in a plain brown box with a return shipping address of your choice on the label and no paperwork inside. Our blind drop shipping services are perfect for trade shows, pop-up stores, festivals, or anywhere else you might want to ship your banners. 

Added Benefit: We know that most companies who have relationships with major carriers like UPS or FedEx often receive benefits for using their accounts, which is why we’re happy to use your account number at no additional cost. 

Production and Proofing

Just like our customers who purchase custom-printed vinyl banners for commercial purposes, we want our wholesale customers to be completely satisfied with everything they order. That’s why, exclusively for our wholesale customers, we offer a free by-request printed proof of your design before we send your entire order to print. This will ensure your banners will look exactly the way you want them to before they leave the door of our production facility.

If you’re interested in your free proof, be sure to let your our customer service team know when placing your order.

Whether you place an order that reaches our minimum of 50 banners for wholesale customers or you need a number of banners that puts you well into the triple digits – don’t worry: you won’t have to wait long to get your stunning banners in-hand.

Because we do all of our own printing in-house on state-of-the-art machines, we can beat the turnaround time and price of just about every other printer on the market today. Plus, our customer service team will give you a realistic and accurate shipping timeline when you place your order – so you know exactly what to expect and when to expect it. This way, you can plan accordingly and feel confident you’ll receive your order on time.

Account Manager

We want to make sure each aspect of the wholesale banner printing process – from your initial design setup to shipping and delivery – is as easy as possible, which is why we have a dedicated wholesale account manager, Steve K., on our team to ensure each aspect of the process goes as smoothly as possible.

Magnetic Vehicle Signs: The Essential FAQ

Magnetic car signs are one of our most popular products, and we are always happy to answer our customer’s questions about them. In this post, we’ve compiled some of the most common questions we receive about magnetic signs for vehicles and answered them here.


Are all custom magnetic car magnets printed the same size?

This is one of the most common questions we get when it comes to custom car magnets. In short, the answer is no. Because there are so many different sizes of cars, vans, trucks, and other vehicles on the road, we really strive to present custom magnetic sign options for each and every one of them – which means offering our custom car magnets in a variety of sizes.

And though the final choice of which size will work best for your specific vehicle is yours, here is our general rule of thumb when it comes to choosing the right size magnet for you.

Remember: For a magnet to fit securely onto your vehicle and not fall off during operation, it is absolutely imperative that it lay flat on a surface with no air pockets, moldings or hinges beneath. The numbers and measurements below are simply a guide and you should definitely measure your vehicle’s size before ordering your custom car magnet.


What kind of magnetic material is used to make your customized magnetic signs?

This is actually one of our favorite questions to answer because we work really hard to bring our customers the best possible products for the most reasonable prices.

The truth is: Despite what some printers may tell you, not all customized car magnets are built quite the same, and the thickness of the magnet material plays a role in not only how well the magnet itself will adhere to the vehicle surface, but also how long the magnet will last. A customized car magnet is an investment in your business, and you deserve only the best for your money.

All of those reasons and more are why we only print our custom vehicle magnets on 30mil thick Magnum Magnetic material. This professional-grade magnet is magnetized with 12 poles per inch which means you’ll find absolutely no dead spots across the whole surface area of the magnet. This is imperative for a secure hold.

About the thickness of two stacked credit cards, Magnum Magnetic material has an exceptional pull strength of 85lbs/ft2. This means that even at highway speeds, if your magnet has been installed properly to a flat area with no air pockets, your custom magnetic sign will properly adhere to its surface and resist peeling off. This kind of pull strength is only found in high-quality 30mil magnetic sheeting – another reason why it is our material of choice.


Are your custom magnetic vehicle signs printed in high quality?

Not all companies who print custom magnetic car signs are as obsessed with quality as much as we are, but we believe in processes and procedures that give our customers the best results. This is why we use a three-step process to print our magnets to ensure the highest-quality colors and prints.

Unlike many printers who print directly onto the magnetic material which can results in less-than-stellar-looking artwork and a limited lifespan, all of our custom car magnets begin with a high-resolution print onto adhesive vinyl. That vinyl is then laminated in a clear protective coating with a luster finish that delivers an extra layer of protection from both abrasions from flying matter and common chemicals found out on the roadways. Finally, we use a wide-format laminator to permanently adhere the vinyl to the magnetic backing material – creating a high-quality durable custom vehicle magnet that can stand up to some pretty harsh conditions.

Virtually no printer on the market times the time, energy, and equipment that we do to make sure your printing comes out perfect every time you order – and our custom vehicle magnets are no exception. You will no-doubt see the Printastic difference.


What kind of businesses can benefit from a custom magnetic vehicle sign?

Instead of answering this question directly, let us put it this way: what kind of businesses can benefit from low-cost high-visibility advertising in and around their target market? If you’re a business owner, we bet you’re salivating at the very prospect.

The reality of who a custom magnetic vehicle magnet can benefit is this: if your business could use more exposure, a widening of your customer base, and way to get in front of more potential customers, a magnetic car sign is definitely for you.

Perfect for businesses of all sizes – from a sole proprietor who wants to add their logo and contact information to their car without paying for an expensive wrap job, to a medium-sized business that wants to outfit their entire fleet of vehicles in matching artwork, custom magnetic signs are a low-cost high-impact way to get your marketing message out to the masses. And thanks to their low cost and lengthy lifespan, even seasonal businesses like lawn services and snow removal can get countless uses out of their vehicle sign.


Do I need an art degree/graphic designer to create a custom design for a magnetic vehicle sign?

Not all of us have a professional designer on staff or the creative juices to work expensive graphic design programs, but that’s perfectly okay. You don’t need either of those things to design an amazing looking sign.

Our design online option has literally hundreds of templates separated into all kinds of categories to help you select something that’s right for you and your business and create your custom magnetic sign in no time. You can also add in your contact information, logo, and any other graphic elements you may want to include.

If you do have a designer on staff or want to put together your own design, you can easily upload a high-quality file in a variety of formats including PDF, JPG, or PSD. Because we will only print artwork that will turn out high-quality and beautiful, we will let you know if there is a problem with what you’ve uploaded and will get it corrected before we go to print.


So there you have it – answers to the most frequent questions we receive about our custom magnetic car signs. If you have additional questions about what we offer or are ready to start designing your sign, be sure to check our magnetic vehicle sign page for more information.

Service Companies: Build Your Business with Custom Yard Signs

There has never been a more competitive market for service businesses. From window cleaning to roof repair, home cleaning to mobile car repair, any industry that services the general public is up against intense competition right in their neighborhood.

In fact, we’re willing to bet that next time you’re looking a hire a service in your own life, you’ll be hard-pressed to differentiate between those outstanding contractors who have a great reputation around and within your community and those hobbyists who may end up charging you less but forcing you to have the job redone anyway – every homeowner’s nightmare! 

Not only do the best service industry professionals manage their digital reputation and image online by monitoring and generating positive Google and Yelp reviews and maintaining an updated website, but they also know how to spread the word about what they do out in the real world. And one of the best, easiest, and most affordable way to accomplish this is with the versatile and multi-useful yard signs. 

Easy to install but hard to miss, custom printed yard signs are a service-industry small business’ most powerful weapon when it comes to getting their name out in the community. They’re not only attractive and affordable, but they’re also reusable and durable – giving even the tightest budget enough wiggle room to accomplish everything they want without breaking the bank.

In this blog post, we are going to examine a few different ways service industry businesses can use yard signs to their advantage – helping even new businesses stand out amongst the crowd. Here are some of our favorites:


On a Customer’s Lawn

This one may seem the most exceptionally obvious, but we’d be hard-pressed to leave it off the list because of just how impactful it can be.

Just like the logic behind political yard signs, when you see a trusted neighbor advertising the company they’re using on their lawn before, during, and after the project, it builds trust and brand recognition – two essential elements of both growing a business and cornering a stake in the marketplace.

If the service work is being done on the outside of the structure where it is visible to the general public, the exposure is even more important as those passing by who admire the work will know exactly who is responsible for it. By utilizing something as simple as a logo and contact information, yard signs are a simple way of maximizing exposure at a job site and can help build your customer base, bring in new business, and get your name out to the masses. 

Pro Tip: Because displaying yard signs on a customer’s lawn can be such a powerful marketing tool, we’ve heard that many of our clients offer their clients a discount just to display their branded yard sign. While most customers are happy to promote your business by displaying a sign without any compensation, it may be worth it to consider offering this perk to customers who might be a little uneasy – you’ll be surprised at how many minds might change.


Yard Signs As a Sponsors Tool 

Just like displaying a yard sign at your worksite can lead to increased awareness and revenue, so to can using your custom yard sign to show off your generous community sponsorship.

The lifeblood of many local fundraisers, events, golf outings, and contests are the neighborhood businesses who step-up to sponsor by either donating money, product, space to use, or other essential items to help guarantee the initiative’s success. And while the altruistic nature of donating is more than enough to justify the expense, you can also put these opportunities to work to your advantage by displaying your sponsor sign in a highly visible location.

Oftentimes, when you sponsor an event, featured promotion or signage display is part of the compensation, and by offering your own high-quality custom yard sign to represent your company, you’ll be guaranteeing that your logo and signage looks great – and helps you stand out from the sponsorship crowd.


To Advertise a Discount

Whether it’s a coupon in a magazine or a coupon code on a website, customers are always looking for the best deal before they commit to buying an item or hiring a service – and yard signs are a great advertising medium to show off the savings you are offering! 

Whether you want to display a certain coupon code, a tracking phone number, a special website, or any other advertisement of a discount or deal, a yard sign offers not only the perfect space to display such content, but are also versatile enough and small enough to put on street corners, in front of brick and mortar office buildings, or just about anywhere else you can think of.

By using custom yard signs to bring your discount to your customers instead of forcing them to search through leaflets or a website for them, you’re circumventing the typical and often frustrating coupon process and letting your customers who know will bring them the most savings off of the top: you. This will encourage them to choose you instead of going to one of your competitors – and that’s always good for business.
