National Banner Library

The Concept
Each local YES / Indy group pays for five banners, which will be printed by Edinburgh Banners and send directly to the group. The banners will be displayed for a month on sites in the group’s area, then at the end of the month each group will exchange its banners with another group. This way banners will be rotated regularly enough to keep the public interested.

The Banners
The banners will be heavy duty vinyl with eyelets. Initially we would ask each group to choose five designs from those on https://grassrootsoban.scot/banner-library/ As designs are chosen and paid for they will be removed from the gallery. The first 21 banners are not currently in the correct 2 – 1 aspect ratio, but are currently being redesigned by Colin Dunne (IndyPosterBoy)

Please send  an email with your chosen designs to banners@grassrootsoban.scot.  Banners should be identified by the names underneath them. Payment should be by bank transfer or (if absolutely necessary) by cheque to Grassroots Oban.  We will provide the bank details when you order. Once we have received payment we will send the order and the print file to Edinburgh Banners and arrange for the banners to be sent directly to you. The price per banner includes a charge for postage.
