Over-the-Street-Banners are one of the more unique products we manufacture. While they may not be suitable for all locations due to their size, many customers who have the space find them to be extremely effective promotional products. By virtue of their sheer size and placement, Over-the-Street-Banners, are an ideal choice for your promotional messaging to reach the broadest audience possible.
We manufacture Over-The-Street Banners for schools, municipalities, and downtown associations. This type of banner can be made with the screen-printing process on marine acrylic canvas or with our full-color digital process on exterior grade Blockout vinyl or poly canvas.
As with Lightpole banners, each style and construction method is designed around the particular intended use of the banner and, in some cases, on the artwork.
For banners that are intended for long-term and repeated use, customers often choose the screen-printing on canvas option. We also can manufacture these banners with digital printing on exterior grade poly canvas for similar durability and longevity where full-color artwork is required. For short-term use, our digital printing on our 22 oz Blockout vinyl is the right choice.
This banner style can be fabricated in various ways depending on banner size, longevity expectation, and installation requirements. All sewing is done with webbing-reinforced hems with UV-resistant thread. Some larger banners are supplied with internal continuous rope systems with spliced thimbles at the 4 corners.
Regardless of which banner size and style is appropriate for your application, all of our banner finishing details are engineered to ensure the banner will withstand the inherent stresses of this particular banner style and will meet all safety and durability requirements.
Material Promotions can manufacture the most appropriate banner style to meet the needs of both long term and short term applications. Our experienced design staff and product specialists can assist with creating the most effective and visually compelling designs while ensuring the most appropriate materials, printing methods and finishing techniques are used in the manufacturing process. Given the fact that many Over-the-Street-Banners are advertising a time sensitive event it’s alway recommended to begin the design and construction discussions well in advance of the date the banners need to be installed. Sometimes, due to circumstances out of anyone’s control, critical in-hands dates come about with very short lead times and in that case we will do everything we can to expedite the process while recommending a basic digital-on-vinyl banner that can be produced quickly to meet your deadline.

Depending on the intended purpose of a particular banner in terms of short or long term use, a variety of materials are used to construct the banner. Additionally, the artwork and images on the banner may dictate which would be the most appropriate material to use.
There are a number of variables that dictate how these banners are finished, including the size of the banner, the material used, the intended service life (short or long term installation) and the method used to install the banner over the street. For smaller, short term use the banners are typically finished with a webbing reinforced hems with brass grommets set at equal distances apart. This scenario usually indicates the banner is made either with polyester mesh, or PVC vinyl. The installation site typically will have 2 parallel heavy-duty wires strung across the street and the banners are attached with carabiners or some other clasp-type device. For larger, long term banner installations, the finishing options can include sewn, webbing reinforced hems with internal ropes sewn into the top and bottom hems that are finished at the ends with stainless thimbles for attachment points.
There are two printing options available for these banners, either screen-printing or digital printing. For screen-printable designs the artwork needs to be spot color output. For multi-color, full-color designs (photographic images) the digital output is used.
Our banners are beautiful. We are going to be hosting a really big Academic Decathalon and are trying to get them up before then. We are very proud to have them for our campus. We will definitely give your name to the other campuses.

“Quick to Respond!”
I wanted to take a moment this morning to extend my gratitude for your help in resolving the green banners. I appreciate your response and how quickly you were able to turn them around. It meant a great deal to both myself and our customers.

“Phenomenal to work with!”
Material Promotions been phenomenal to work with. Of this whole process from gathering the pictures & information, to getting approval from our electric company to use their poles, to lining up lift trucks & volunteers to hang the banners which took 3 weeks to hang all 219 banners, the easiest part was working with Material Promotions. The banners are of excellent quality and the resolution turned out better than we ever expected. Our whole community is beaming with pride over the banners. I have had Vietnam Veterans give me a hugs with tears in their eyes. Many families have expressed how emotional seeing their loved ones on a banner has been. I had a widow tell me that she goes down to the pole where her husband's banner is and she talks to him. Several people have shared their loved one's banners all over Facebook. It truly is touching to see & feel how much these banners have meant to everyone. Thank you for providing a first-rate product! We will highly recommend you to everyone. Thank you so much!
