In addition to our haunt special effects products, Illusionator also specializes in full-color, photo quality, custom banners and signs for haunted attractions. Beautiful, frightening, stunning, and priced incredibly low. Our excellent OUTDOOR banners are priced 25% less than what Kinko's charges for a cheap INDOOR banner, plus we do the artwork for free! Great banners and signs for haunters, by haunters, up to 16' wide and 150' long (or tall). Just tell us your ideas, and we'll do the design for free. Our professional designs include text effects, 3D styles, gradients, stock images, etc. We designed and created the banners that were used by Haunted Attraction Magazine as a backdrop for their booths at the TransWorld and the HAuNTcon shows in 2007 and 2008, and we have designed and/or printed banners for a number of haunted attractions. (Please see some of the banners we designed and printed for our customers below.) We can also print directly onto rigid Coroplast or aluminum-sided super stiff Dibond signs at your haunt or your advertising around town. From huge custom outdoor banners to "rules of the haunt" and ticket prices signs to themed banners that add atmosphere to your haunt to small utility signs, we can make your signage super-professional and uniquely yours. It will dress up your haunt, attract new customers, and bring them back with their friends. At amazing prices! You will be very pleased.
We make several types of banners and signs, depending on your needs. Our prices are VERY low. Remember that for all of our banners and signs, the design work is included for free:
Outdoor Banner. The type of banner we most often make for our customers. It has excellent photo quality, is highly durable and crease-resistant, great for outdoors or indoors, and available in sizes up to 16' wide by 150' long (or tall). Will last 2-3 years in the rain, wind, and direct sunlight without fading or tearing, or many more years if used indoors. Solvent-printed onto 13 oz. scrim vinyl with a matte finish. Pricing — when the narrowest dimension is up to 8', printed at 720dpi: $7/sq.ft.; or when the narrowest dimension is 8'-16', printed at 360dpi: $5/sq.ft. (Remember: We do the banner design for free!) Sewing (for hems or pole pockets) and grommets are free. For large banners that will be stretched taut, held only at their corners, we offer specially reinforced hems with webbing sewn in, and attached metal D-rings at the corners, for an additional $1/sq.ft. For banners that will be subject to a lot of wind (for example, a banner over a street or a large banner against a building), we can install a pole pocket at the top with webbing in the hems and D-rings in the lower two corners, or we can cut curved wind slits for $2/sq.ft.
Small Smooth Single-Sided or Double-Sided Indoor Banner. This banner has excellent photo quality, is very smooth, can be printed on both sides, should only be used indoors, and is available in sizes up to 6' wide and 100' long (or tall). Solvent-printed onto 13 oz. non-scrim smooth vinyl with a matte finish at 720dpi. This Indoor Banner media results in colors that are not quite as saturated as the Outdoor Banner, but still looks great, and has the advantage that it can be printed double-sided. Is also used in our Retractable Banner Stands, below. Pricing — Single-sided: $8/sq.ft., Double-sided: $14/sq.ft. (Remember: We do the banner design for free!)
Small Heavy Smooth Double-Sided Outdoor Banner. This banner has excellent photo quality, is made from heavy vinyl, is very smooth, can be printed on both sides, can be used outdoors or indoors, and is available in sizes up to 5' wide and 100' long (or tall). Solvent-printed onto 18 oz. scrim vinyl with a matte finish at 720dpi. Pricing — Single-sided: $10/sq.ft., Double-sided: $17/sq.ft. (Remember: We do the banner design for free!)
Large Heavy Smooth Double-Sided Indoor Banner. This banner has excellent photo quality, is made from heavy vinyl, is very smooth, can be printed on both sides, should only be used indoors, and is available in sizes 5'-16' wide and 10'-150' long (or tall). Solvent-printed onto a 16 oz. scrim vinyl with a matte finish at 360dpi. Pricing — Single-sided: $7/sq.ft., Double-sided: $16/sq.ft. (Remember: We do the banner design for free!)

Retractable Banner Stand. Super convenient for trade shows, and for banners at your attraction that you take inside when you close or that you need to be able to move. This is a banner that unrolls out of a high-quality stand on the floor. Sets up in about 60 seconds, and every retractable stand comes with a convenient carrying bag. The image is printed on our Smooth Indoor Banner material. We use high-quality Orient, Elevate, and Contender retractable banner stands for years of reliable use, not cheap imitations that can break easily. The Orient retractable banner stands unroll to a total overall height (banner + stand) of 86¼" (7'2¼"). The Elevate retractable banner stands have an overall height of 97" (8'1"). The Contender retractable stands are available in two different overall heights: 79½" (6'7½") high and 106½" (8'10½") high. Remember: We do the banner design for free! Below, please see the retractable banner images and pricing options:

Tristand (tripod stand) with Banner. This is a banner that comes with a very lightweight and convenient tripod stand in a choice of three sizes. (Please see the image here on the left.) Especially useful for banners displayed outside your attraction, or at your table or booth at conventions and trade shows. The smallest of these Tristands can stand right on a table. The banner stand itself quickly disassembles and stores in an included carrying bag when not in use, and you can roll up the banner into a small stiff cardboard storage tube that we provide. It takes about 2 minutes to set up the Tristand — assemble the banner stand itself in seconds, and then screw in the threaded screws through the grommets in the 4 corners of your custom banner. One big advantage of the Tristand over a retractable banner, above: The Tristand lets you use different banners for different occasions, while still using the same stand (we just make another banner for you to use with the stand). We use high-quality Tristand banner stands for years of reliable use, not the cheap imitations that can break easily. Remember: We do the banner design for free! Below are our Tristand options in three different heights:
|TRISTAND WITH CUSTOM BANNER|
Gatorboard (foam board, foam core) Indoor Sign. High-quality stiff indoor sign, photo quality, 3/16" thick, paper on the outside with stiff foam on the inside, up to 4'x8' in size. Pricing: $16/sq.ft.
Coroplast Outdoor Sign. Inexpensive stiff outdoor sign, photo quality, made of corrugated plastic, not as strong or professional as Gatorboard but usable outside and very cheap, up to 4'x8' in size. Pricing: $6/sq.ft.
Dibond Indoor Sign. Extremely stiff high-quality indoor sign, photo quality, aluminum on the outside with solid plastic sandwiched inside, ⅛" thick, up to 4'x8' in size. Pricing: $26/sq.ft.
Econolite Indoor Sign. Same as Dibond Indoor Sign except that it is ¼" thick (rather than ⅛") and has corrugated plastic on the inside (rather than solid plastic). Similar rigidity to Dibond. Pricing: $22/sq.ft.
Dibond Outdoor Sign. Same as Dibond Indoor Sign, but enhanced for outdoor use. Instead of printing directly onto the Dibond, we print onto photo quality vinyl, over-laminate that with clear high-performance cast vinyl for UV protection, and laminate those two layers onto the Dibond. Will hold up in rain, wind, and direct sunlight for 3-5 years without fading, cracking, flaking, or bending. Is ⅛" thick and up to 5'x10' in size. Pricing: $55/sq.ft.
Econolite Outdoor Sign. Same as Econolite Indoor Sign, but enhanced for outdoor use in the same manner as the Dibond Outdoor Sign. Will hold up in rain, wind, and direct sunlight for 3-5 years without fading, cracking, flaking, or bending. Is ¼" thick and up to 5'x10' in size. Pricing: $55/sq.ft.
Clear Indoor Adhesive-Backed Vinyl. We print with pigmented inks directly onto clear adhesive-backed vinyl, which you can then peel-and-stick onto plexiglass to make faux stained glass windows, etc. For indoor use. Pricing: $6/sq.ft.
Clear Outdoor Adhesive-Backed Vinyl. Same as Clear Indoor Adhesive-Backed Vinyl, but enhanced for outdoor use. We double-strike print (for excellent color saturation) using a solvent printer onto clear adhesive-backed vinyl, then over-laminate with clear high-performance cast vinyl for UV protection. Will hold up in rain, wind, and direct sunlight for 3-5 years without fading. Pricing: $16/sq.ft.
We can also make stand-up signs, real-estate style signs, inexpensive lawn signs, we can die cut all of our signs, etc. We are very flexible, and we are haunters ourselves. If you need any sort of full-color banner or sign, printed on just about anything, we can probably help you. Contact us for details. Our prices are VERY LOW, and we do the graphic design for free!
We have a $100 minimum on the total price of a banner/sign order (to cover order processing, job setup, banner finishing, etc.), but that order can include multiple banners/signs to bring it up to the $100 minimum. Shipping and insurance are extra, but we just charge you the actual shipping and insurance cost (see shipping page for details). Also, we need to charge for a minimum total of 9 sq.ft. for each type of banner media, due to the width of the banner media itself. When computing the square footage for pricing, we round up each dimension to the next whole foot.
