Animatedbanner.com - Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question that is not covered below, you can contact us via our contact form for a quick answer.

How much does a banner design cost?

Our standard banners are $45.00 for all sizes. That is considerably less than fees charged by most advertising agencies - and somewhat more than the low budget cookie-cutter banner 'factories'. We have been designing banners since 1998 (with the same team) and considering that the first banner was created in 1993 (or 1994 depending on who you ask), we have more experience in this field than just about anyone. Its a very good deal. We do offer discounted pricing for multiple banner orders and also discounted banner packages to verified customers.

*A 'verified customer' is someone who has previously made a purchase from us.

Some banner design projects have complex design requirements that go beyond our standard banners - and for those we quote appropriate industry standard rates.

How long does it take to create my banner?

Our typical turnaround time is 24 hours. It can take up to 48 hours on weekends, holidays or when we have a very heavy workload. Saying you "need the banner ASAP" won't change that. All banners are made as soon as possible.

Do you have multiple banner size packages?

Yes. While others seem to rely on one-time "spontaneous purchases" we approach things a little differently. We like to know if our style is a good match for you - so if you've never used our services before, we suggest that you order a single banner first via our demo system. When that order is completed to your satisfaction and paid for, you can then let us know if you would like a banner package and we will deduct the cost of your first banner from the package price.

Here are some of our most popular banner size packages:

Three Banner Package - $99.00: Three banner sizes (any size).

Four Banner Package - $130.00: Four banner sizes (any size).

Six Banner Package - $190.00: Six banner sizes (any size).

Ten Banner Package - $300.00: Ten banner sizes ((any size).

All the packages above are for additional banner sizes based on the first design.

Note that we don't just cram your banner design into different sizes; we remake and optimze each banner size so that all the sizes look great. We also have reduced priced packages for multiple unique banner designs for regular customers (only) at very attractive rates.

What about multiple or bulk banner orders for different designs?

We are glad to provide discounts for multiple banner orders to verified customers. We recommend that you order a banner via our demo system first if you have never used our services before. That way, you get a good sense of our style and that should help you make your decision. Pricing for multiple banner orders is always discounted and is determined per project.

Do you create Flash format banners?

No. We'd rather be eaten alive by worms.

What format is my banner created in?

Animated banners are in .gif format and static banners are in .jpg format (or .png format if requested)

Do you need a banner, a header graphic or something else?

Many people mistakenly place orders for a banner when what they actually want is a header graphic. Design lingo can be confusing, so we'll define terms (as they relate to our products) here:

Banner : A "banner" is a banner ad. Most often used on other websites to advertise your website. Examples of banners can be seen on our banner samples page. You can order a banner any size (either animated or static) from our order form for $45.00 with no advance payment. This order form is only for banners.

Header graphic : Some people call header graphics "banners" and this is where the confusion starts. A header graphic is a design element at the top of your webpage that might contain graphics and images that help define the look of your site. They also usually contain a logo. Some websites are specifically designed to use a header graphic - and that makes it very simple to change the graphic and give the site a whole new look and feel. For other sites, using a header graphic requires changes to the overall design and layout. We can create custom header graphics (for sites specifically designed to use header graphics) at prices starting at around $150.00. For other sites, there is often more work involved and we provide pricing for those per case. To order or inquire about a header graphic, use our contact form so that we can have a look at your website and give you a price quote. Please don't use our banner order form to order header graphics.

What is a custom banner?

We use the term "custom banner" to refer to banners (ad banners) that we custom design and can be ordered via our free demo system for $45.00. We can make just about any type (animated or static) or size banner you need, including (but not limited to) the following common sizes:

728 x 90 (Leaderboard)
160 x 600 (Wide Skyscraper)
250 x 250 (Square Popup)
300 x 250 (Medium Rectangle)
234 x 60 (Half Banner)
120 x 600 (Skyscraper) *no longer commonly used
468 x 60 (Full Banner) *no longer commonly used

What is the free demo system?

The main goal of the free demo is to introduce you to our design services and show you our style and how we work. It cuts out most of the unnecessary back-and-forth people have to go through when dealing with a new design team, and just lets us show you our stuff with minimal fuss and bother. You order it, we make it - and if you like it you buy it. If you have never used any of our services before, we suggest you order a banner through the demo system first. The demo system provides a very fast turnaround (usually within 24 hours) and there is no obligation - you'll be able to see the completed banner before you buy.

Here are some tips for using the demo system:

Unsure about something? Just ask. We are more than happy to answer any questions you might have either via our contact form before you order the banner - or, if you are any a hurry, you can just include your questions in the order form when you place your order and we'll answer them as quickly as possible.

Keep it simple. Just fill out the form as fully as you can and send it. We'll take care of the rest. Be sure to use a working email address or we won't be able to process your order. Your email address is only used to provide information about your order. We do not have mailing lists and we never send out newsletters or promotional emails of any kind.

Help us make your banner great. The description in the order form is very important and it should be completed fully. We really appreciate any info you can provide on your specific market. A summary of what you want to highlight about your product or service and who your target market is - is exactly what we need. In every case, the banner comes out much better if you provide clear details on your product and marketing goals. We know how to design banners - but nobody knows your product or service better than you do.

Changes and modifications Of course we will fix any mistakes we make (typos etc.) free of charge and we are relaxed and flexible about other types of modifications as well. Great customer service is important to us and we will often make other types of changes (within reason) free of charge. If the changes require a lot of extra work, we will request a reasonable fee to cover the extra time. We are quite proud of our track record when it comes to getting it right the first time - but we are equally proud of our professionalism and dedication to customer service so we are quite easy to work with if changes or modifications are needed.

Do you have banner templates?

Our custom banner templates are geared toward clients with some image editing skills who need banners in which the content is frequently changed. We can provide custom banner design templates delivered with all source files so that you can make changes to the banner yourself as needed. These banner templates take considerably longer to create than our regular custom banners and have different pricing. If you would like more information on custom banner template pricing, please contact us via our contact form.

I need modifications to a banner I previously purchased

We keep source files around for quite a while, so modifications such as new sizes, text changes etc. are reasonably priced if based on a banner you previously purchased.
