Step and Repeat Banner: The Event Exposure You Need

Step and repeat banners turn every event photo into a promotional opportunity for your business. Whether it’s at a red-carpet premiere or corporate party, this banner will make your logo the center of attention. As its name indicates, step and repeat banner printing repeats a logo several times as the background. Guests are reminded of your brand as they pose for a photo and upon viewing their images from the event later.

Ready to get started? Upload your logo design now or create a layout from scratch using our online design tool. Our print experts can also proof your file to make sure it’s print-ready, free of charge.

Step Into the Best Size

Choose from three step and repeat sizes, based on two factors.

First is the ease of taking each photo.

Second is the number of logos or the number of times each logo will repeat in the display.


120’ x 96’ is the most popular size among customers. Its width is large enough to fit a big group of 7 or 8 people in one photo.


96’x 60’ is suitable for events where only photos of an individual or a pair will be taken. This longer and thinner size keeps the focus on one or two logos.


96’ x 96’ can fit a small group of 4 to 5 people in one photo. It also has enough space for about two or three logos.

Make the Most of These Materials

We print custom step and repeat banners on three premium materials.  

13 oz. Poly Film

  • A smooth, bright white front that has a glossy finish
  • Gray back that provides opacity under bright lighting
  • Waterproof; durable for both outdoor and indoor use

13 oz. Scrim Vinyl

  • A durable, waterproof material
  • Has a smooth surface normally seen on billboards
  • Lasts for both indoor and outdoor use

18 oz. Matte Vinyl

  • The most durable banner material available; lasts 5 years outdoors
  • Has a smooth, matte finish that emphasizes colorful logos or a central image best viewed at close range
  • Tear and fungus-resistant
  • Ideal for outdoor use as it can withstand strong winds and cold temperatures as low as -22°F

Keeping Things Steady

You can order either a banner with a stand, or a banner by itself.

Note: The telescoping stand arrives as a separate order and comes in a carrying bag. You won’t have any problems adjusting the stand’s height nor carrying around its weight.

When ordering a banner without a stand, the following treatments are also available to secure the step and repeat banner as a background.

  • Pole pockets are created from extending the banner’s material and then folding it to form a hole through which poles are slid through.
  • Hem with or without grommets can be chosen for a banner plus stand order. The hemming process prevents the material from unraveling. Grommets are recommended if you plan to attach twist ties to the stand.

How to Assemble the Banner

Here’s how to assemble your banner with the telescoping stand. The following steps are best done on a large, flat, and even surface.


Note: Avoid over tightening the telescoping poles. Locking it too tightly will make disassembly difficult.

Banner Designs To Spread the Word

Aside from step and repeat banner logos, we offer free banner design templates you can customize to promote your business. Choose from a variety of industries and marketing strategies that fit your needs best. Here’s how to customize banner templates using our online design tool.

Step 1. Browse banner designs and filter according to size, industry, and design style. You can also start with a blank canvas. Click Customize on your preferred design template.

Step 2. Use the design toolbar to upload your own logo and images, add text and shapes, and change the text according to your brand.

Step 3. Once you’re done, click Save and Proceed to Order to follow the rest of the checkout process.


How far are the grommets from the edges of the banner? How can I ensure that the design won't be cut off by a grommet?
The grommets are normally 2 feet apart and about half an inch away from the banner’s edge. Our downloadable layout templates ensure your file is within the right dimensions.

You can also select the free file proof option. Once our team has checked the file, we will send it for your approval before printing. Prior to sending, we check and correct any errors found on the file.

Can I print on both sides of my banner?
Yes, you can choose to print on just the front or on both sides of the banner.

How big are the step and repeat banners?

  • 120’ x 96’ is our biggest size available. It can accommodate a large group of about 6 to 8 individuals
  • 96’ x 96’ step and repeat is suitable for a smaller group comprised of about 4 individuals.
  • 96’ x 60’ is the smallest size and can fit just one person for a solo shot.

How soon can I expect my order?
Your step and repeat banner can be ready on the next business day after your order. “Printing turnaround” is the number of days for us to produce your pole banner printing order. This does not include holidays and weekends. You can also get an estimated delivery date using the order calculator by providing your ZIP code.

Can I use multiple logo designs on my banners?
Yes. You can simply upload a file with multiple logos already laid out or you can create the design on our website using the online design tool.

Can I order a replacement banner only?
Yes, you can order a separate banner without a stand. Just indicate this under the Display dropdown option on the order calculator as you select your preferred product specs.

Is there a template to download to add my graphic correctly to include space for pole pockets. I want to send you the step and repeat predesigned.

Asked by: nancyV
It's not currently available online, but you can send a request via e-mail to customercare@nextdayflyers.com to request for one. Just let us know the file format you need, the size, and the orientation (portrait or landscape). You can also just set up your design with 1/8" bleed on each side, and make sure to keep all important design elements 1/8"-1/2" away from the edge. The sizes indicated on the site are the graphic size; to give an allowance for the pole pockets, add 4" to the top and bottom (e.g. if your order size is 96" x 96", the size of the file with bleed and pockets would be 96.5" x 104.5").

Are stands included or do we have to purchase separate?

Asked by: cpuryear
Stands are included if you choose the Banner + Stand in the display options when you order. If you choose Banner Only, you will have to purchase a stand separately.

How do I add 2 different logos to the step and repeat banner?

Asked by: Anonymous
You can either upload a file that has the 2 logos already laid out the way you want them to print (using an editing program you have) or you can also use our free design tool. To use our design tool, after selecting the specifications you want for the banner, click on "Create Design Online" to get started. Once there, you'll have the option to upload your own images, duplicate them, and move them around. If need help with either, you can contact our customer service team to assist you with setting up your order.
