Skip to Content Custom Banners has turned our birthday celebrations into treasured keepsakes with their custom banners.  They truly amped up the celebration and projected a whimsical, elegant centerpiece for our guest of honor.

Recently we were given the opportunity to review Build A Sign’s custom banners, and a Winter Break from school turned into a day of creative exploration! When I shared with my children the prospect of a banner, they amazed me with their imagination. The Divine Miss M was born on New Year’s Eve, and this inspired her to negotiate a banner for herself. Something more of a keepsake than planning an amazing birthday party.

As I listened to The Divine Miss M share with me her ideas, I found myself really getting into the possibility of this project. It was my turn to make my daughter’s imagination come to life! has the easiest creation template I’ve ever used. You select the style and size you want and then upload your picture. You can add text, which goes beyond your standard four generic fonts. You can manipulate the color of the text and background.

We had SO much fun creating the banners. It was easy and didn’t leave me frustrated or feeling like I really needed to tweak up my tech skills (which are ZILCH). The only issue we experienced is that my pictures are stored on a photo site and therefore compressed. saved the day when I received the proof and a message that the resolution would produce a very blurry image. I set out to correct it. I am SO thankful BuildaSign offers proofs free of charge, so I didn’t receive a banner that was an eye-sore!

The Divine Miss M’s idea was to create a birthday banner that said, “Happy Birthday, (their name)” Then a picture of them now and a picture of them from their first birthday. Each child selected the picture they wanted to use from each moment past and present. To make this an even more priceless banner, The Divine Miss M came up with the idea that on their birthday they would write their name and the date “so we can see how we wrote our name when we were that age!

Isn’t this brilliant and fun?!

We had hardly clicked “submit” when UPS knocked on our door delivering our banners. There was giddy excitement and lots of jumping as we opened up our package from

The results were amazing.

Then New Year’s Eve arrived, and The Divine Miss M was over the top excited to put her plan into action. We hung the custom banner and stood her next to it.

It is a tradition we are going to keep!

She wrote her name and the date, and when she paused to look at it she realized her excitement about this project extracted her focus, and she wrote the “Z” in her name backward! LOL
