An AZ PF member has a sister-in-law who works for Chick-Fil-A. The SIL really went to bat for us with senior management. Therefore, I want to honor the commitment they made to us.

We found lower prices, some half the cost, but none that offered unlimited color as Kinko's has. Various logo colors demand various colors. We have sponsors that were promised a logo on the banner. These are local and national companies. Also, it is an outdoor material that will be durable. I like to think that I'll pull it out again 10 years from now and display it at the 10-year WAT! :)

I agree that the banners should have consistent graphics, and be professioanlly done. Other than that, I don't agree that it is important to have the banners identical. Having our banner done locally does ensure that all sponsor logos will be done correctly. After all, we will approach these same sponsors again next year.

Kinko's can catch images from the Internet, so we will have the PF logo, colors, etc. Please let me know of any specific design elements for the banner itself.

Thanks!

FYI: Chick-Fil-A is sending a check directly to PF. I will pay for the banner at pick-up. PF reimburses me.

Jill, did you approach a Chik-Fil-A restaurant manager, or the company itself? Thanks!

It is nice to have all the banners look the same but since you have already gotten a donation--I think you will want to go with the option you have. You can work with Jaime and Eleni to ensure that the banner looks like the PF logo, colors, etc...consistency in style is the goal but we should also never turn down any offer to help. Always delicate but I would say to go ahead with what you have worked out and coordinate details with Eleni. Hey, that reminds me--keep a list of all "donations" because we need to provide tax receipts for those and Jaime may need help with the volume of those around this event. You might be asked to generate them and provide a copy to national--but I will let Jaime make that call. Every donation counts--even non-monetary compensation.

Take care,

Jill,
I think the point of the banners coming from one place was to have them all be "the same". I might be wrong about this..it wasn't really coming from a National level. I hate to say this, but I know the price would be much less. The banners my dad makes are done on vinyl banners with vinyl letters, etc. Oh well. I would check with Eleni regarding the logo specs, camera ready art, in case you didn't think of that.

In Arizona, we were able to secure a sponsor (Chick-Fil-A) for our banner, so for this year we won't need a banner from national. However, next year may be a different story. If we have a national sponsor for banners next year, then count us in. I would then ask Chick-Fil-A to contribute in a differnt way. I want to keep Chick-Fil-A happy. Everything is a go for this year and I don't want to upset the apple cart, so to speak.

By the way, we are gettig our banner form Kinko's for $155. This is a good price compared to two other printers in the area. This price includes unlimited color which is important for proper sponsor logo transfer.

Hope that helps!

Laura,
I just don't like asking for "an estimate" from my dad and him not getting back to me. I knew I couldn't ask him to donate the banners, but I don't also want to make everyone else wait on me or make me look stupid...!

I apologize for the delay and will get some sort of answer before the conference call. Eleni has been working with me, and my father, and it seems that he needs a fire lit under his butt. No matter that he's family, this is business...so I'll be contacting him today.

Hi All -

We are planning to address this issue in more detail during the WAT conference call on March 29. If you need answers prior to that, please contact Eleni. She has been coordinating the banner options with Kris and others from a national level.

Thanks!

did I miss an update post on the decision about banners? I have someone willing to make me some for my site, but I had them on hold because of a previous post from Jaime about universal ones being printed.

I will need to let this person know ASAP if I still want him to create for my local site (donating these free of charge). If this is okay to go ahead with, let me know of anything that must appear in a specific way (ex: PF logo, etc).
thanks,
