    I want to get a banner done that I can take to gigs with me, All I want on it is my stage name and my myspace. Can anyone tell me how I would go about getting this done and roughly how much it would cost. Thanks guys and gals. :D

    The one we had last night was about fifty quid and that was size A0... but I suspect you'll be wanting something a bit more hardwearing if you're gonna be taking it to gigs with you.

    You'll probably be able to get something a lot cheaper if you shop around.

    Top day yesterday too btw everyone had a cracking day

    cheers Gav, that was kind of you.

    hello little elvis, what size are you needing?
    there are two types that would be suitable; you can go for a PVC banner or a fabric banner. Fabric banners are easier to transport, look after and will not crease as permanently. PVC banners are a little cheaper but are bulkier and a little harder to look after to keep looking fresh.

    as a bit of an idea of price:
    - 1m x 3m banner with hems and eyelets - £55
    - 3m x 3m banner with hems and eyelets is - £210

    - 1m x 3m fabric banner with hems and eyelets - £100
    - 3m x 3m fabric banner with hems and eyelets - £240

    + delivery

    if you would like to have a chat about the banners you can email me on studio@seenby.co.uk or call on 01274 891178

    cheers

    does anyone know of a company that does bass drum front heads?

    a simple design, just "the wick effect" in Courier New font, white on a black background, at a suitable size

    Try Awesome Merchandise. They're based in Leeds and used to do just badges. We got a 10' x 4' PVC banner for £60 which is huge and in full colour. It looks the dogs bollocks too!

    we made our own one, all it took was a banner we found, some spray paint, stencils, and half an afternoon!

    Im all for DIY stuff, but be aware that most venues wont allow you to hang stuff that isnt on flame resistant material. Some will even ask you to provide proof its flame retardisity(?). I dunno if that means theyll ask you to take a lighter to it though. Haha.
