How do we get a Military Tribute Banner program started?
A Military Tribute Banner program is a wonderful and proven way to honor your military heroes while raising funds your military outreach projects and programs.
The most "challenging" component of starting an outdoor banner program is getting the necessary permission from the local government and/or utility agencies. This process can take weeks or even months. We are here to help you get the program up and running once permission is obtained.
From the banner design to promoting and managing the program, we are here to assist you each step of the way at no additional cost. We will even send you a custom sample banner to help you present the program. We truly believe that a full-size banner in hand, customized for your community, is worth a thousand words.
Would you like to talk to other communities that have started the banner program? We have several that have offered to help answer any questions you may have.

This can be done at anytime. It is best to have in hand prior to presenting the banner program.
Provide the details of your program and we'll set up the promotional materials.
Mini fliers, posters, social media images, website ordering will all be set up and proofs sent to you for approval.
Once the promotional materials are approved, we'll print and ship them at no cost.
Your website ordering page will go live prior to the promotional period beginning.
The promtional materials direct sponsors to the site for additional information and to order. The site can be updated at any time.
Fliers and posters can be distributed around the community.
Social media, email blasts, town, city or organization websites can easily promote the program and link to the ordering page.
Local papers / magazines / news outlets should be contacted to do segments on the program.
Local veteran/military groups can also assist in promoting the program to members and families.
Going above and beyond to give honor to whom honor is due.
