pennant style banners: the new thing

Posted April 5, 2011

Seriously, in the last 2 weeks, I have seen more than 3 different photos from weddings featuring banners. I have an affinity for all things typography related, given my graphic design and printing foundation, so these really get me excited! I wish I had thought of/known about these when we got married 3 1/2 years ago… check out these beauties!

you know me, always drawn to that something that's a little different from everything else out there... This vertical banner makes me smile; look at the size of that exclamation mark!

There are companies on Etsy that make these lovely banners; Joyful Joyful is one that creates banners similar to the third and fourth photos above, and uses fun patterned paper to boot! Below are some images of the type of fabric banners that Bpoetic makes, her website is alot of fun—check it out here.

Have any of you made banners like this for an event (doesn’t have to be a wedding! Birthdays, baby showers, etc.)? Have you had one at your wedding—or do you have it saved away in your mind for your future wedding now? I’d love to hear about it!
