In 2015, a permanent, feature banner frame with a professional pulley system was installed by the Chamber on the northwest corner of the Cashiers Crossroads. Along with the Chamber's onsite banner frame, the three banner displays are for the purpose of promoting non-profit organization events and must follow specific guidelines including content, graphics, dimensions, pole pockets, wind slits and lettering information detailed below. The Cashiers Area Chamber maintains the schedule for banner hanging and banner display is subject to Chamber approval. Banner reservation is required.
Submit your banner reservation via email, firstname.lastname@example.org, in person at the Chamber Office 202 US Hwy 64 W or call 828-743-5191. An email confirmation will be sent to you. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED - NO EXCEPTION!
ALL BANNERS MUST: BE EXACTLY 4’ BY 12’ HAVE 3” TOP AND BOTTOM ROD POCKETS (NO GROMMETS) AND INCLUDE WIND SLITS. NO EXCEPTIONS. POLES AND CONNECTIONS WILL BE PROVIDED AND WILL REMAIN ON SITE. Banner Quotes available with Chamber member PlateauPro (828) 371-5780 or Signs Express (828) 369-8800

Helpful Hints & Requirements for Messaging & Readability
INFORMATION - Feature your event name, organization, location & date prominently on your banner. Provide additional contact information such as website address. County regulations do not allow any commercialism. Non-profit activity information must be the predominant graphic.
FONT STYLE & SIZE - Use a boldface font 4” high or larger, contrast colors and sufficient spacing for readability.
COLOR SCHEME - Black, red or white lettering against a contrasting background will increase your visibility by more than 10%
CUSTOMIZATION - Use adhesive vinyl lettering for dates or times for easy, cost-effective changes year to year.
GRAPHICS - Use 300 dpi high-resolution graphics to avoid pixelation
For additional exposure, add event information to www.Cashiers411.com - the comprehensive online community calendar for Plateau activities.
