Custom Street Banners

Custom Street Banners are the perfect addition to the main street

Custom street banners are known by a few different names. We sometimes call them street pole flags, light pole banners, or avenue banners. It is only right that they have so many names as they have so many uses!

Lamp post banners are often used by cities and municipalities as well as real estate developers and post-secondary institutions to brand and brighten up street spaces. Over the past 30 years, Aurora Flags and Banners has built a reputation on being the ultimate source for custom street banners. We supply cities and towns from coast to coast with our Junior Windspill Banner Brackets as well as our custom printed vinyl street banners. Check out all the options we have for your custom street or light post banners!


There’s a lot that goes into choosing the right material for your project.

See below or contact us today, we’re always happy to help!

At Aurora Flags & Banners, your custom street banners can be made of four types of materials: 18 oz blockout vinyl, 14 oz blockout mesh vinyl, 200D nylon and sunbrella.

Determining the correct sizing for your custom street banner can be a challenge.

If you make your banner too big, it puts an undue load on the bracket system and your pole. This means that your banner could end up failing in heavy winds. If you make your banner too small, no one will see it when they’re driving! The industry standard sizing for street pole banners is 2′ x 5′, but this can change based on your application.

Proper installation of your custom street banners is the key to durability.

Besides the material that the banner is printed on, correct installation is the next most important factor in determining the longevity of your banner investment.

At Aurora Flags, we offer installation service across the country.

Street Banner Materials

Vinyl Street Banners

18 oz Blockout

  • Vinyl is the most popular choice for street banners due to it offering a long-lasting product without having to compromise on the artwork design. They are digitally printed which means no colour or design limitations.
  • We print our vinyl street banners exclusively on 18 oz blockout vinyl banner from ultraflex. This material is specifically made for our custom street banners and is designed to endure our harsh Canadian weather. The blockout property prevents shadowing of the printed graphic onto the other side of the banner which makes it ideal for double-sided banner printing.
  • We generally like to keep the size of our vinyl street banners to under 30″x 72″. The reason is that the wind does not pass through this material. Because of this, it will act like a sail and cause stress on the banner, the banner bracket, and the lamp post if it is made too large.
  • All of our vinyl street banners are digitally printed on UV coated vinyl with UV rated inks.

14oz Blockout Mesh

  • Mesh vinyl is the second most popular choice for custom street banners. Aurora Flags will encourage the use of the 14 oz blockout mesh when the banners are going in a particularly windy area or the banner is quite large. The mesh property of the banner allows the wind to pass through, thus reducing the stress on the banner, the hardware and the lamp posts. These custom street banners are used mostly in windy mountain towns, on marinas or docks, as well as over-sized banners
  • Mesh vinyl offers a long-lasting product without having to compromise on the artwork design as it is digitally printed and there are no colour or design limitations.
  • For our mesh street pole banners, we only print on ultraflex’s 14 oz mesh blockout vinyl banner.The blockout property prevents image shadowing onto the other side of the banner. All of our mesh vinyl street banners are digitally printed on UV coated vinyl with UV rated inks
  • One thing to keep in mind is that since this is a mesh product, there is an element of “perceived” transparency. The mesh is vinyl fibers are woven and thus there are void spaces that create the mesh property. No ink is printed onto the void space and thus the banner may be a bit see-through when viewed at certain angles.
  • Nylon street pole banners are great for short-term applications. Nylon, when stationary fades faster than vinyl and thus it should only be used for shorter term applications  (less than 1 year)
  • Nylon street banners are usually printed single/reverse
  • Nylon lamp post banners look beautiful in sunlight as the light makes the printed graphic “pop”
  • Nylon is a less expensive alternative to vinyl street banners when printing in large runs
  • All of our nylon street banners are digitally acid die printed on UV coated 200D nylon with UV rated inks
  • Great for very long-term use  (4+ years)
  • Can only be screen printed, so there are colour and size limitations
  • Takes a long time for production
  • Can get quite expensive
