    I had been contemplating getting a banner for about a year now. I had priced a couple and guess I saw my money in a vinyl roll collecting dust most of the time and couldn't really get off the hip.... [​IMG]

    I finally made up my mind to get one. I called and priced one locally, and I could get a plain white background with black letters and one black graphic for $52. Not too bad from what I have seen other places.

    Well, I made an inquiry, and I was told to bring him (another person) the graphics and let him look at it. He started playing around, and laid out what I was thinking of. It looked good. So he says, lets experiment a little. He did, and here is what I ended up with. When I went to pick it up, he had a little one laying there for me to look at. I gave him that puzzled look, and said, "that isn't 2ft by 6ft....". He then told me that's right. I made this one to see what it would look like. Then pointed to a roll, and told me that was the bigger one. WOW, was I shocked, both for the price of one, and $52 less than the other guy quoted me....

    So, here they are. I just stuck the larger one on the front of my CharGriller for you to get a peak at them. And yes, that is yours truly.

    Looks good Bill!!! A cheap alternative for t-shirts are iron on's you can create right on your computer. Go to Staples and get iron on transfer paper, buy a couple of shirts (tshirt, polo) create your logo, print them and then iron them on!! A buddy of mine has a mail box company and he made his own polos. They fade quicker than professional jobs, but you can't beat the price.
