Signazon offered me a free vinyl banner in return for posting an honest review on my blog. I had been thinking about what I would make to welcome a new baby into the fold, so the timing couldn't have been better. I told the rep as much, and she seemed genuinely happy for me and the family. The emails back and forth with Michelle were so casual and easy-going, and any question I had was answered promptly. I was already half in love with the company and hadn't even seen the finished product!
The site has tons of templates for any occasion you could imagine, both personal: weddings, parties, anniversaries, graduations, holidays; and professional: trade shows, retail advertising, grand openings, specials, tournaments, and more.
There were tons of options, but I wanted to draw something using decorations from the baby's room, so I spent a day designing my banner. I uploaded the Illustrator file with no problem and checked out. That was laaaaate on Thursday night. Friday morning, right after the start of business, I got an email that my job was being printed. It shipped Monday and I got it Wednesday. I thought it would take at least a week, considering production and shipping, but they exceeded my expectations.
The banner came rolled up, and the company had previously emailed suggestions about how to hang it. I love that idea because there's no paperwork to lose and look for later, just to realize it probably got recycled along with the box.
The banner is 4' by 2', lightweight but sturdy, made of smooth vinyl with silver grommets in each corner for easy hanging.
I felt bad that I got the banner so promptly but couldn't post about it - I wanted to send it on to the baby and share a picture of it hanging in the nursery. I tweeted Signazon that I loved what they had sent me, and they tweeted a personal reply, again offering congratulations! I really appreciated that they knew who I was in relation to my order, and said something more personal than a simple "thanks."

Everyone who has seen the banner is absolutely in love with it; now I'm trying to turn every event I know of into something that needs an awesome banner. There's more to it than that, though - Signazon also makes stickers, window clings, car magnets, yard signs, and, my favorite, oversized checks. You have no idea how tempted I am to pay my income tax with one of those big boys!
