LOVE OURS!!!! I've been using it this week for registration table and the kids love to pick out the different career people on teh banner we have! And like Critter said the colors are so bright and cheery! Hey Tim, our banner is nicer than the one the school ordered and paid twice as much!! :D :D

Debbie - I've seen the Color-Me-Banners and Color-Me-Flags in various supply catalogs and always thought they'd be great to try. You'll have to tell us how yours works out. Note for others - they also have the same thing but "kits". Those include the banner or flag plus paints and brushes but are quite a bit more expensive. has a nice selection of festive, but inexpensive, posters and banners. They feature various school welcome message, promote subjects like reading, and have motivational slogans (including religious). Note - these are paper - so wouldn't last long term. And you'd have to plan for shipping charges.

Look under schools/banners. Their website is a little funky to navigate. Here are some examples:

Welcome Back to School Poster - Pencil (10 ft) - $6.49

Welcome (w pictures of children) - 10 ft. - 6.49

Thermometer (12" x 45")- Like for tracking fundraising. - $3.25

Welcome Back to School (w cartoon bus) - 4' x 8' - $3.99

I found a 3'x10' banner that you decorate yourself for $9.99 from S&S Arts and Crafts. They also have flags for $6.99. These are a great inexpensive way to advertise lots of things. We are purchasing two banners, one for our craft show and one for Christmas craft shop. The flags we will use as reminders for Cash for Trash collection day , Family Fun Events, and Indoor Dismissal for rainy days. If you have a very artsy person willing to create these, I doubt you will find cheaper.

If your school or orginization has a contract with someone like Coke (don't mean to open a can of worms about that) they would probably make you a sign for an event or something. Of course it would be temporary. It wouldn't hurt to check that out, if it is free you could use that until you could purchase one from PTO Today or Positive Promotions. I am sure PTO Today has the best ones though. ;)

I'll vouch for the PTO Today banner - we have one and it's very bright, the printing is very clear, and it's heavy weight vinyl with grommets in the corner. We haven't used ours outside yet, but it feels like it could handle a little weather just fine. We put the word "Welcome" at the top and our PTO's name at the bottom. I'm a big fan of signs made of a twin bed sheet and a can of spray paint, but this is way classier and will last much longer.

It's hard to do them justice online (where you can't touch and feel them), but check out these banners:
Click here to see the great banners in our store. (scroll half way down)

They're the best quality we've found anywhere and the graphics are terrific. You can customize the top and bottom messaging for your own preferences. Highly recommneded.
