Creating paper banners for birthdays, holidays and other celebrations at home or in the office is a time-honored tradition, but using a computer as a sign maker can make the process quick and easy.
An office birthday wouldn’t be complete without a large “Happy Birthday” proclamation or even a banner with the gentle ribbing, “Over the Hill.” Office staff could choose to spend company time hand-lettering celebratory signs, or designing them from scratch on the computer.
Such Internet sites may offer the instant download and printing of banners for a low fee, or even free. You can also get printed banners by clicking right here.
Computer-generated signs are also popular for celebrations and other events at home. For example, a green or red Christmas banner adds to holiday décor, while “Bon Voyage” or “Happy Anniversary” are perfect additions to a party.
To select a design for a particular occasion, visit a banner making a Web site and browse the options. There may be several fonts and colors available for each holiday or event.
Generally, banners are generated on common 8 1/2-by-11-inch printer paper with one or two letters on each page or panel in PDF form. After all of the letters are printed out, simply assemble the panels in order and join them using tape, staples or string.
Once the panels are printed out and joined, they can be used as-is or laminated for extra durability. That way, an office can use the same birthday or retirement banner for multiple employees, parties or holidays.
