Finish Line Banner Printing Specifications
Start and finish line banners are typically free-standing banners that are installed over the race course, roadway, sidewalk, or path below. Banner specs include:
We use 18oz blockout layered vinyl, which is optimal for several reasons. The thick material ensures that double-sided printing (a common request) will not bleed through from one side to the other. It's also very durable and able to withstand outdoor conditions of sunlight, wind, and weather without fading, tearing, or showing signs of premature wear. The material is also lightweight enough to be easy to transport, setup, and take down.
Finish line banner height can be ordered from 2-3 feet and width from 16-24 feet. If you have a custom size request, please call us and we'll provide you a quote.
We can print any colors and color combinations, and also any image quality up to and including photographic quality. Our advanced printing technologies can fulfill almost any request.
We will provide hemmed pockets for pole mounting, if needed, including any grommets required for installation. You can also check our Rope Banners page—these are an affordable solution that provides added assurance and support to any free standing banner that has traffic passing nearby or underneath.
Finish Line Banner Help Center
Do you have questions about purchasing finish line banners? Here are some common questions and requests:
“We have custom logos and graphics from multiple sponsors—can we add all of them to our banner design?”
Absolutely! You just need to make sure your banner has room for all the images you want to add, usually there's plenty of space. Make sure you add your race's logo and the iconic checkerboard design!
“Are wind slits needed for finish line banners?”
Wind slits are not necessary for the sizes we offer: they don't have enough surface area to benefit from additional ventilation. Except for extreme conditions that would typically cause a race cancellation, your banner will be fine without wind slits.
“Can we buy finish line banner installation hardware from you?”
In order to keep our prices for printing and shipping as low as possible, we do not include installation hardware. Our banners are designed to be compatible with most finish line setups or DIY installations.
