Need to get a move on with mine. Cut out the first word, going to attach it to the red material tonight. I'm a bit worried the background material I have is too thin. It's going to be an interesting experiment anyway
P.S. Am I the only one who thinks that the rise of the digital banner has taken the fun, the art and the character out of yer good old fashioned, traditional LFC banner? Keep Flags Home-made!
I mean the odd big digitally printed one is fine, and obviously the quality of photos and that is much better... but you can't beat making your own banner. And the digitally printed ones make it possible for lazy idiots to have crap banners printed. At least before you had to put a bit of effort in - which discouraged most lazy idiots.
Sorry, missed this post yesterday.
I have to agree myself. Having done several home made banners in the past for specific finals, this time around I've opted for a printed one.
If you are doing an uncomplicated banner, with a large graphic, or only a line or so, then thats fine, and may take you a week of so to complete.
This time I've opted for a printed banner, because the complexity of it would take me about a month to complete, and I just havent got the time to do that. That said, I didn't get the idea or inspiration until last Thursday, so it was impractical to do it by hand, due to the short deadline.
I have to agree in principal though, as it's not just the hands on making of a home made banner, it's also the beggining of the odysey, as when you start to knock one up, you start to get that excitement that the final is nearly here. You also have that immense pride in your own handywork, which you probably don't get with a printed banner.
Either way. As long as there are plenty of banners, and a show of red strength, then thats the main goal. Supporting the boys.
