$40 Banner Giveaway for Your Jewelry Craft Booth

By on Monday, August 27, 2012 47 Comments

Some years ago, my beading friends and I shared craft tables for a while.  We called ourselves the Bead Sisterhood. As you can see from the picture we felt we had to get a banner of some sort.

Left to Right : Cindy, Susan, Millie and Pearl 
A banner wasn't strictly necessary but we were glad we had one as it did a number of things :

  • told people who we were
  • gave us a brand
  • provided a visual interest to an otherwise boring backdrop
So when Banners On the Cheap contacted me about a possible review and giveaway, I quickly agreed!  Some of you probably have banners on your wish list for the upcoming craft show season.

Their banners site is very easy to use.  I tried it out myself by generating a banner for The Beading Gem based on my floral theme.  The software allows users to select the size and font they want and to upload a custom logo.  As my current logo's resolution wasn't good enough, I used one of their templates which suited my floral theme.  I plan to glue flat back crystals on it!




I was pleased when my  4 ft x 2 ft banner arrived. The vinyl banner was thick and thus durable. There were also 4 grommets on each corner which might be useful depending on how one wishes to attach the banner to the wall or curtains behind the booth.  Banners on the Cheap do sell the necessary hardware.

The words were crisply printed as shown in the close up picture below. The cost of this size banner would have been $14 plus shipping had I not received one for review. Pretty sweet deals for sure.

So if you are thinking of getting a banner, then try your luck with this giveaway.  The $40 giveaway is ample for many of the available sizes.  The winner must make sure the shipping cost is included in the $40 to get the banner completely free.
