Are you part of the live entertainment industry?
To most outsiders, being an entertainer elicits ideas of glamour and excitement. What they don’t see is how tough doing Gigs these days can be.
In my opinion, conditions now must be more challenging than at any time in the past.
Thanks to the mobile internet explosion with Apple and Android smart devices numbering in their millions locally. It’s harder today to get your share of the public’s attention.
How can you stand out?
How can you help your show cut through all the other noise and distractions that are available now – everywhere?
One way is to take advantage of the technology, maximise your impact, while at the same time raising the awareness of the audiences that see you live.
The simple answer is a Band Banner (or Gig Backdrop).
Compared to other types of promotion a Gig Backdrop has many advantages to offer you as an entertainer.
Gig banners are a great way to help brand your performance and your show, to help potential fans know who you are.
And at the perfect time, when their attention is on you when you’re on stage performing.
A themed band banner removes any ambiguity about who’s performance they’re enjoying. And a Gig banner will do this without being “in their face”
Your current following will get a kick out seeing you with a more professional look on stage. While at the same time helping would be fans identify with you more easily.
I know this may sound like it’s a little off the track of what you primarily do (ie. entertain people). These days though you have to take care of your marketing almost as much as your performance or show, that’s why you’re here.
What a loss to have a new fan see you for the first time, enjoy your performance only to have them unsure of who you are.
Or worse, get your name wrong and possibly let someone take your cred for your hard work.
How many times has this happened to you already?
Your Gig Backdrop will stop this cold. It will ever happen again.
You work hard to be the best you can be at what you do. Why not give your performance an extra chance to help grow your reputation and your following by removing the guess work of who you are for your audience.
It is hard for someone like you in the entertainment industry to understand how a lay person could walk into a gig and not be 100% aware of who they are actually seeing perform.
You are too close to the “coal face” of the entertainment industry. You go to every gig knowing exactly who you want to see. Regardless of whether it’s the first time of the 100th time you have seen the performance.
It’s not the same for most everyone else.
Don’t miss the opportunity of changing a casual observer into a loyal fan. A band banner can show more than just your name.
Gig banners can be BIG too, I use woven fabrics for these exclusively now.
I used to use PVC Vinyl back in the day, it’s a good product but to be honest, it is a little “Old School” now. And it is impossible to work with large sizes.
The main reason why is PVC Vinyl doesn’t like to be folded. This makes it is difficult to store and transport.
And if you do fold a Vinyl backdrop instead of rolling it, the creases this will cause finishes up making your backdrop look like Sh%&#*&!
Your band banner can show your spirit and deliver a message to help reinforce and augment your performance.
They are easy to erect, easy to take down, they travel well and fabric band banners take up very little space as you can see here.
Your band banner will also last you for years with the right care. This makes your investment in your own self-promotion just a dollar each time you use it – literally.
If you have been thinking of a banner for your band (or yourself), you have come to the right place. My standard vinyl band banners start from as little as $169 and if you want you can have any shape or sized band banner you need.
My guarantee to you is that your investment in your band banner will provide a return on your investment for you equal to dozens, if not 100’s of times any price (small or large) you ever have to pay to own it.
You buy it once and it offers you a major return from then on.
You have thought long and hard about this already, otherwise, why would you be here? You already know a band banner will work for you and my band banners are the best value in Australia.
The quality of the finished product will blow you away and frankly, my service to you will be second to none, guaranteed.
My artwork is FREE of charge to all my clients (if you need a hand) and I can have your banner on its way to you in about 10 days (my turnaround times are 5 to 7 working days right now, so give me a little time if you can 🙂

Steve The Vinyl Band Banner Guy
I wanted to use the artwork for our yet to be released Album, Steve made it easy.
He sent the initial proof design and after a couple of minor mods we were ready to pull the trigger.
It was easier than I thought to make our backdrop happen.
Thanks again Steve, your passion for your work is great to see!
Damien of Junior Danger
The name of my band is Agent86, I do the Promotions / Marketing & play Bass.
We needed a backdrop to present a professional image to the public. Also to create a visual link to our Facebook page.
Before the backdrop, we relied on Flyers, word of mouth & Facebook. It's still early days, but our backdrop is getting noticed and commented on.
Steve went the extra mile to create a great product, making numerous improvements on my original design.
There are many printing companies offering "banners", not many of them are specific to the music industry, so you can't tell what the finished product might look like from their web pages.
Definitely, good service. If you are looking for a backdrop get your design & quote done by Steve!
My Backdrop made me feel like the crowd took me more seriously as an entertainer and held my show in higher regard than others on the same night, not just another band on stage!
Steve could not have been a friendlier, more approachable guy, and was so accommodating and made me feel valued not just as a customer but as a person in the Industry.
I would without a doubt recommend Steve to every band I work with that wants to be taken seriously.
Do it, people hear with their eyes 🙂
I wanted to push our Brand. I had been networking at our gigs, handing out cards, talking with people before we got our backdrop.
Thanks Steve, great, communication and service, quick turn around too.
You should give Steve a call
