Need picture of Championship banner
Sat Dec 06, 2014 11:04 am
  • I could really use some help with this. I want to have a nice Vinyl Super Bowl Champions Banner made for my Hawk Cave. I would like it be an exact replica of the banner hanging up at Century Link. Every place that makes banners wants a high resolution picture of the banner. Does anybody out there have a high resolution picture of the Championship banner or do they know where I could get one? It would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Nate

    Thanks, sadly that one doesn't work as it is not high resolution. I appreciate the effort though.

  • if i could figure out the fonts they are using, i could probably recreate something fairly close in photoshop at high res.

  • Just do it vector and be done with it. If I had a couple of hours to spare I would do it. I'm sure they're using all of the officially licensed NFL fonts. Looks to be using 2; NFL EndzoneSans and NFL Endzone Tech

    If I were to tackle recreating the banner in vector format, I would probably use the following references:
    The one already posted for colors and gradient spot referencing

    A couple of different straight on shots lined up as placement reference

  • here's the start I've got, low res version.

    Just need to get the fonts in and do a couple cleanup things and eyeball some of the tints and tones.

    the actual working file is 36" tall at 300 DPI so should be plenty of resolution for anything printed poster size.

    Cool, let me know when it's done, I have a friend with a print shop that could print that on canvas 48" wide by whatever tall that works out to.

  • An Illustrator file would actually work best. You wouldn't have to worry about DPI or the size of the image, as vector art scales indefinitely without losing detail. I could give it a go, if you'd like, but it's been a while since I've done gradient work with the pen tool. Shouldn't be too difficult though.

    Then again, Hawknballs' picture is pretty good so far.

  • You actually be using three programs to create this if you are re-creating it. Photoshop for the Lombardi trophy, Illustrator to rasterize and make it vectorable, and then InDesign to create the fonts. But if you really wanted to cheat on it, you could just rasterize a low res version in Illustrator and hope it scaled well. It might not.

    This is one of the most bizarre posts...

    Not entirely sure what you're talking about here. Rasterize to make it vectorable? InDesign to create the fonts? Low res version in Illustrator? Illustrator being vector, has NO resolution. It's just a mathematical representation of what you're seeing on screen.

    This entire project could be created in Illustrator (a Vector based application) that would scale to be put on the side of a building if you wanted to.

    If you wanted to make a high resolution raster image that would print plenty well, it could easily be done in Photoshop.

    If someone wants to send me the raster (Photoshop) recreation, I will make a vector version for anyone to use, to print any size imaginable.

  • Yup, Anguish is spot on. The best way to handle this is designing it as vector in Illustrator and output as an .eps file which can be resized by the printer at any size they want whether it's a flyer or 100 feet tall on the side of Century Link.

  • So is there a completed file someone would like to share? I'm just really excited to have a banner made for my brother as a Christmas gift and time is flying by now. I had already tried myself but my Photoshop skills are hardly equivalent to mediocre Paint skills :P

    I was looking at something like 2'x3' on vinyl. Also, esigns has some pretty decent prices on aluminum as well.

    most...freaking...excellent!!!

    p.s. your next banner should be of Crabtree so your guests can take pictures of "The Tip" :) followed by a banner of Erin Andrews so you can do the interview too.

    Too much?

    actually that wasn't mine, but it looks awesome! I messaged the OP while I was working on it but he let me know someone beat me to getting it to him.

    Nice work!

    I would love to buy one of those if that's possible.

    Just out of curiosity what was the font for the text at the top? That was the only part I couldn't figure out. I found a few that were close but it looks like that one is exact.

    It should be easy enough for anyone to take the file and upload it to one of the many online print shops (e.g. esigns, Vista Print, Staples). You can get a 2' x 3' vinyl banner for $15 from esigns and they're even doing a BOGO saie through Friday. That's the route I'd go.

    Hawknballs is correct, somebody else did complete the project of a high resolution for me,however I did have to pay for it to be done for me. I ordered 15 of these banners at 4x3 size (the file does not fit into 3x2) as I have some friends that also want one. If anyone is interested in purchasing a 4x3 vinyl banner of this, feel free to pm me.

    As I mentioned previously, I'll provide the EPS vector file this weekend. It will be linked in this thread for download.

    Simply take that file to a printer that prints vinyl banners and voila. It could easily be printed on poster paper and framed, or printed on aluminum like a street sign, etc. once you have the EPS, a printer/sign maker could do anything with it.

    Note, however, that this is for your personal use. I'm sure it violates about a hundred copyright and trademark laws, so don't try and sell it or use it for any other profitable means. I'm only going to provide a file for which you will be responsible for its use.

  • Yeah, as I mentioned earlier, you can simply upload the file to esigns.com, Vista Print, Staples, etc. I was already messing around with esigns so I'll probably just go with them, considering they're currently doing a BOGO sale and the prices are already good. Also, as Anguish mentioned, they do metal signs as well. It's really easy to print a banner from one of the popular online shops. :th2thumbs:

  • Here is the vector for printing as promised...

    The white around the outside is a 'bleed' which most printers will require.

    BTW, Hawknballs, I had to modify just about every letter when starting with Helvetica Condensed Black. It's close, but not quite right as you stated.
