Banner Profits for Special Events

Printing banners for a celebration with an inkjet printerDavid Ziser, well known for his Captured by the Light seminars and expertise in all areas of professional photography, also knows how to turn an ordinary celebration into something special with large hanging banners.

Ziser has photographed a half dozen or so Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs over the past few years, including one in the past week, incorporating 4×8 banners as a value-added piece for the occasion. Ziser takes fun photos of the kids who are officially coming into adulthood, applies backgrounds where needed and prints the photos with his Canon iPF8100 44-inch wide inkjet printer on LexJet TOUGHcoat Water-Resistant Polypropylene.

Adding profits with banners for special events“All told I’ve made 52 banners for this family for their events. They look so cool hanging from the ceiling at these venues. We’ve been printing everything on our Canon printer and love it, and the Water-Resistant Polypropylene from LexJet prints nicely, it’s scratch-resistant, easy to work with and quite economical,” says Ziser. “We printed all eight of those in three hours on the Canon printer. Not too long ago that would have taken at least a full day on our older printers. From a production standpoint, including retouching, I probably only had four hours into it and that makes me a happy camper.”

The speed of the printer and the low cost of materials provides a nice profit on each piece, plus a true keepsake and highlight for each event. Ziser works with the lighting tech at the venue to make sure the banners look their best. After all, Ziser’s specialty is lighting.
