Before we Get Started....

At Banner Sign Company, we’ve produced and installed thousands of light pole banners for a diverse client base. These range from Schools, Churches and Municipalities, through Pro sports teams, Shopping centers and Business parks.

The one common element these groups share is that they rarely have anything in common. By this, I mean there are numerous variables to consider when purchasing light pole banners. So if you’re interested in learning a little more, please feel free to read on.

How much do lighting pole banners cost? We hear this question a lot, but before I answer that, please consider your needs and give us some details so we can build you a custom quote based on your exact needs.

Here are some basic things to consider. Please review the below sketch as you complete the checklist that follows.

  • How many poles do you want to decorate (are they all the same)?
  • Who owns the light poles and what are the permitting concerns?
  • How tall are the light poles and are there collision risks?
  • Do you have banner brackets?
  • Do you want single or double banners?
  • What size banners do you want?
  • Is this a short term or long term display?
  • Will you require installation and removal service?

Thru Print Light Pole BannerThru-Print

For eco conscious, short term applications with eye popping dye sub color, thru-prints will satisfy your needs at an affordable price.

thru-prints are fabricated from a single layer of polester fabric and are finished with reinforced side hems, making them incredibly strong in all sizes.

Using digital dye-sub technology, the banner are printed on side and heat set which forces the ink threw to the back side of the material, resulting in reverse reading image on back side.

Thru Print ExampleA reverse reading back side may be odd to comprehend at first however, our brains automatically transpose reverse reading image to be audible.

Ecological Advantages

Unlike solvent based vinyl printing, Dye-sub inks are aqueous based and are specially formulated to be environmentally friendly.

Thru-Prints are a direct to substrate process and do not require the use of paper as an intermediate transfer as a medium typical to dye sub printing.

Thru-Prints are an excellent alternative for two-sided applications. While traditional two-sided printing requires an image to be printed twice, thru-printing is a one hit process thus reducing ink and energy consumption by 50%.

Banner Brackets

Deluxe Banner Brackets: Warranty 10 Years

Deluxe Banner BracketsThese brackets are recommended for indefinite permanent use. They are a two part system where a base casting is permanently mounted to the light pole and removable banner arm is installed to the base casting. The system ensures optimal banner tension under varying wind conditions.

The key factor to ensuring long term service lies in how you mount the banner brackets to the light pole. For steel and concrete poles, we recommend using 3/4″ Stainless Steel Banding and buckles which are installed using a special tool to ensure optimal tension.

For wood poles we recommend using Lag Bolts (3/8″ x 2.5″) and flat washers (7/8″ OD) which are available from your local hardware store.

Economy Brackets: Warranty None.

Economy Brackets

For temporary installations and smaller banners (Example HxW= 36″x28″) we recommend using our Economy brackets.

Economy brackets are a one part system held to the light pole using screw gear bands.

Banding Options

Stainless Steel Band BucklesStainless steel banding: This is a permanent method for installing banner hardware to steel and concrete light poles.

The banding system consists of 3/4″ stainless steel banding, specific buckles and a special tool for achieving optimal tension between the bracket and the light pole; all of which is essential to combating varying wind forces.

This is the same system that Municipalities use for installing street lights and signs to utility poles.

Screw Gear BandsScrew Gear bands: This is a convenient method for temporarily installing banner brackets to light poles. For smaller banners (Approx (HxW) 36″x18″), screw gear bands will serve as a method of permanent installation.

Example Pricing

OK. Now that we’ve framed in your needs, we can proceed with a quotation.

Directly below, I have compiled two quotations for clients that are starting from scratch. The first is for a long term banner display (Deluxe – up to 5 years), and the second is for a special event display (Economy – up to 1 year) like The Super Bowl.

Deluxe Price GuideEconomy Price Guide

Both quotes are for 5) light poles with 24”x60” banners and the cost difference is in how we build the banner, the cost of the hardware and how long they take to install. In both cases, the banners are printed front and back in full color. Both displays will look pretty much the same for the first 6 months and the economy display is more likely to start deteriorating after that time. It’s hard to put an exact time frame on the life span of an economy light pole banner because it all depends on the weather. However, it’s safe to say that smaller scale banners (24”x60”) experience far less wind loading than larger banners (30”x94”) and are likely to last longer.

So, now that you have a ballpark cost, it’s time to consider permitting. The big question here is who owns the light poles? If they’re in your parking lot, not such a big deal but if they are owned by a Municipality or public utility, then you’re obligated to seek permission to display banners on them.

Banner Permitting

Light pole banner permitting will vary by Municipality, and while I can’t speak for all, I can say that it’s a serious consideration within The City of Detroit. There is a well-managed ordinance that governs how banners are displayed on city-owned light poles. For information on Banner Permitting in Detroit, please see our information tab on that subject.

Detroit Banner Permitting General Overview

On July 1, 2004, The City of Detroit implemented revisions to the above-referenced policy. The new policy has been well thought out, is carefully worded and should be given serious consideration prior to executing a banner project. The following notes offer a brief consolidation of some of the policy highlights as well options that you may consider in determining how to proceed with your banner project.


  • Detailed application process.
  • Fees:
    • Application fee: $100.00 (non refundable).  M-1 fee: $80.00 where applicable.
    • Refundable deposit: $500.00 ( up to 5 banners)
                                              $1,000.00 ( more than 5 banners)
  • Classifications of Banners
  • Duration of permits
  • Citizens can file for permission on their own behalf.
  • Citizens can retain a banner company to file on their behalf.


The following are options on how you may choose to proceed with your banner permit.

#1: Proceed with a petition on your own behalf.

Depending on your orientation toward securing permits, you may view the process as simple and straight forward. On the other hand, you may view the process as being complicated and confusing. It just depends on the individual. To execute the process, simply contact The City Clerks Office 313.224.3266 and ask them to send you a copy of the above-referenced policy.

#2: Have Banner Sign Co handle the permitting process for you.

We charge a flat rate of $520.00. Our fee includes a site inspection, a detailed map and permit preparation (application fees and deposits due to The City are additional). Our flat rate does not guarantee that your application will be approved and is non- refundable if it is not. Banner Sign has extensive experience in petitioning on our client’s behalf and have a successful track record for “getting it done”.
