The non-profit Mercy Corps wanted to spread their messaging through Portland’ s Temporary street pole banner program, reserved mainly for Non-Profits. As a City approved provider and installer of banners, Able Sage was able to help. Mercy Corps wanted to have varying messaging for the various poles the banners were to go on. Each pole, because of the way the temporary banners are hung, requires 2 banners, installed sandwiching the pole itself.
Provide the client with custom made templates, showing where all cuts, welds and grommets would go to avoid important graphics from being less viewable.
Also guided and reviewed clients in their design efforts, to better maximize the banners for continued use in future years.
Produced City specified, and improved upon, digitally printed single sided banners, with finishing specs of RF welded pole pockets top and bottom, scallops cut out of the top pole pocket area, grommets at the bottom, inserted with PVC pipes for installing with zip ties, bungee cords and a special foam piece to protect the poles, finishing with 4 windslits through the banners.
Coordinated efforts to install 4 different versions in a best messaging possible: 66 logo banners, 22 each of -GO Beyond, Build Beyond and Push Beyond, rotating versions.
Installation of all 130 banners and then removal 30 days later per the city’s permit.
