2’x8’ Banner Options and Specs

2x8 sized banners are our third longest thinnest banner we print. These eight foot wide and 2 foot thin banners are actually a perfect choice for adding a textual message to any horizontal surface. However, if you are looking for a vertical orientation and want a banner that could be draped from an average ceiling height to the floor, once could design a vertical layout to be printed on this banner to give you an eight foot hanging ceiling banner too. Because these banners are only two foot thin, they are best used for text banners for communicated a single message. By default we finish these 8 foot banners with heat welded hems and install mounting grommets on them to ensure you are able to easily install these 2x8 signs. However, you have other ideas for installing your banners in mind and do not want us to finish your banners with hems and grommets, please be sure to let us know you do not want these finishing options at the time you place your order.

Many other sizes available, see the all banner sizes page

Pixel Dimensions for 2x8 banners
For 2x8 banner pixel dimensions should be:

- at 72dpi - 1728x6912 pixels;
- at 100dpi - 2400x9600 pixels;
- at 150dpi - 3600x14400 pixels;
- at 300dpi - 7200x28800 pixels;

As a general rule, the more detailed your artwork is, the higher DPI (pixel count) it should to be. For pictures and photographs, lower pixel/dpi counts are fine (72-100dpi). For text rich artwork, and for files with lots of details such as logos, maps, menus, etc, use higher pixel/dpi count (150-300dpi).

72 dpi is the minimum resolution we would recommend for printing, and the 300 dpi for the maximum resolution.
