Don’t forget about the simplest church outreach tool of all: outdoor signage.

These days, so much of church marketing and advertising occurs online. You may be wondering if church signs and banners are still useful for your church. The answer is yes! Successful church outreach campaigns require multiple methods to connect with your community. To truly create awareness around your church, you need multiple touch points. Methods like direct mail, outdoor church signs, a church website, and church social media can definitely help get the word out about your church, but don’t forget about the simplest church outreach tool of all: outdoor signage.

Outdoor signs are one of the easiest ways you can create awareness about your church throughout your community. There’s an option for every budget and need: vinyl banners, yard signs, directional signs, flag banners, and more.

Why is outdoor signage so effective?

  • Outdoor church signs and banners are easy to use. All you have to do is order your banners from a vendor and set them up when they arrive. That’s it! As soon as they’re in place, your banners will start doing round-the-clock work generating awareness about your church to anyone who passes by.
  • Outdoor signage is affordable. Good banners will last for years. If you invest in quality from the start, you’ll get a lot of use out of them for the amount of money you spend.
  • Outdoor church banners are always hard at work. A banner hooked to the side of your church works 24/7 to inform and attract passing traffic. You can share important information on your church signs, like service times or your church website. A well-designed sign makes it easy for potential visitors to know how to take their next step in finding out about your church.
  • Outdoor banners and church signs attract attention. Brightly colored flag banners, bold graphics on over-sized vinyl banners, eye-catching yard signs – each of these command a glance from those driving or walking past your church. If they’re designed well, passersby will immediately be able to take in the information on the sign.
  • Outdoor signage makes your church look inviting and friendly. Church signs and banners show people in your community they’re welcome to visit and your church is excited to meet them. When your church signs display service times or upcoming events, you’re inviting everyone in and encouraging them to connect.

How can you make outdoor church signs and banners work for you?

Like any church marketing tool, there are a few best practices that will help maximize your reach.

  • Keep your church banners and church signs consistent with your other outreach tools. For example, if you’re promoting a big holiday service at your church, you’re likely using a holiday theme for your direct mail, door hangers, and invite cards. Make sure your outdoor signs match the theme, too.
  • Keep it simple. When people drive by your church, they won’t be able to read a long bible verse on your sign. They’ll only have a few seconds to take in the information you display, so your service times, web address, or the date of an upcoming event are best.
  • Follow basic principles of good design. Make your key information bold and large, have a clear call to action, and include a way for someone to contact you. Avoid font that’s hard to read and color pairings that are hard on the eyes.
  • Make sure unchurched people can understand the message. Using Christian specific terminology might not confuse your current members. However, if you’re hoping to attract people who aren’t already church goers, make sure your signs don’t have church-specific language they may not understand.

Which church banner or sign is right for you?

  • Church Flag Banners are the easiest, most economical way to flag down visitors to your church. The eye-catching design draws attention to your church and guides guests around your campus. Flag banners come in two shapes: feather and teardrop. Where to put them? Try along a busy road, lining the driveway to your church, or in planters around your parking area.
  • Horizontal Outdoor Church Banners can help your church make a bold statement. You can typically choose from a range of sizes to fit any outdoor space. These church signs are perfect for the road by your church. A simple message in a large, bold font catches the eye of everyone driving by. Use these to advertise a specific service or event, or as a general “join us” message for your normal Sunday services.
  • Church Light Pole Banners help create a beautiful, unified theme around you church. Try using these as welcome messages that align with the rest of your signage. Church guests will notice the unified theme and appreciate the extra detail. Light pole banners can also be used to promote a sermon series, direct first time guests toward the church, or as seasonal or holiday decorations.
  • Church Yard Signs are a simple way to promote your church services. Because they’re small and portable, it’s easy to set them up in strategic areas outside your church and around town. You can even ask church members to post them in their own yards to help promote special events and services in their neighborhoods. Yard signs are also great for churches meeting in temporary spaces because they can easily be posted and removed each week. They’re great for directing people where to go once they arrive at your church: they can show guests where to park, and point them to the main doors.

Pro Tip: Don’t forget about church sign & banner hardware.

Once you select your banner, you’re halfway there! The next step is choosing appropriate hardware to make sure your banner is displayed properly. Make sure your hardware is sturdy and made to support your banners and signs in all types of weather.

When combined with other church marketing efforts like social media or direct mail, outdoor church signs will help create awareness around your church and attract new visitors. These affordable tools can help showcase your church as an inviting place for people in your community to find genuine connection, learn about Jesus, and grow in their faith.

File Size

We have various standard banner sizes. Banners are designed at 25% of actual size. See Banner Size Chart below

Bleeds: Bleeds are intended to allow space for cutting and finishing. Refer to Banner Size Chart for specific banner sizes and bleed requirements.

Safety Zone: All critical elements (text, logos, etc.) must remain at least 0.75" from trim edge. Shifting can occur during trimming and items within this 0.75" area may be trimmed or covered.

Logo & Image Quality

Quality requirements:

  • 300 dpi (dots per inch)
  • CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black)
  • Minimum of 10" in one direction

Images taken directly from the web are NOT acceptable.

Logos are accepted in the following formats:

VECTOR (PREFERRED)

  • AI
  • EPS
  • PDF (Illustrator)

RASTER (PREFERRED)

  • TIFF (transparent)
  • PSD
  • PDF

Note: Increasing the dpi of a small file will not increase the image quality (Example: 72 dpi increased to 300 dpi will still make the image appear pixilated).

Color

All artwork must be provided in CMYK (Cyan, Yellow, Magenta, Black) color mode.

For large areas of black coverage use "Rich Black." The accepted rich black break down is: C=70, M=70, Y=70, B=100

Outreach does NOT guarantee exact color matches.

Fonts

All fonts must be converted to Outlines, Shapes or Rasterized before artwork is submitted
