Probanners is a leading provider of banners for youth recreational sports organizations
throughout the country and also provides a turnkey sign solution for national corporate accounts
and franchise organizations. The company’s unique online design tool technology allows users to
quickly produce high-quality signs and banners from scratch or from hundreds of templates and

The Probanners Story
Probanners was founded in 2006 to solve a simple problem. Company President,
and serial entrepreneur, Mike Hummell found out that it could be a real pain to get
a team banner for his son Johnny’s football team. After driving across town waiting
in a long line at the local banner shop to pick up the banner he had come in and
ordered two weeks earlier, he learned the banner wasn’t ready.
Surely there had to be an easier way!? There wasn’t, and Probanners was born.
Mike and his team spent the next year researching the banner market and having a
custom online application built that was so simple that truly anyone could use it
to create their own custom banner in minutes. They commissioned thousands of pieces
of original artwork to allow users to customize their banners for any occasion and had
hundreds of templates built to give users a head-start in creating their team banner
Just making the sign and banner design and ordering process fast and easy wasn’t enough.
Youth recreations sports leagues typically have a short time-frame between choosing
teams and needing their banners, so the ProSignandBanner team decided early on to
guarantee next-day shipping on all 3×5 Sports Banner orders designed with our online software.
There’s nothing worse than seeing the
looks on a child’s face when they don’t have their banner for picture day.
This fanatical dedication to getting banners to our customers along with our commitment
to provide high quality printing on durable materials for the long outdoor sports
seasons has propelled Probanners to become one of the largest suppliers of
youth sports banners in the nation in less than two years.
But the story doesn’t end with youth sports…
The same dedication to ease of ordering, quick turnaround time, competitive pricing,
and quality product and service that has made Probanners a leader in the youth
sports market has gained momentum in the corporate world as well.
By 2008, Probanners had launched its corporate accounts program to provide a
turnkey sign and banner solution to franchises as well as multi-location national
Reliability delivered, coast-to-coast.
Corporate account customers are provided access to their own custom online electronic
library of artwork that provides an ease of use and variety of functionality not
available through traditional sign procurement processes.
Each organization’s online “storefront” allows individuals throughout their organization
to quickly and easily order pre-approved stock signage or customize pre-approved templates
for local use, with timely and relevant information such as operating hours or local phone numbers.
Immediate proofs, next day shipping, dedicated account managers and centralized billing,
among other benefits have rapidly grown this segment of the business. In early 2009,
Probanners expanded and relocated its primary production facility from Southern
California to Denver, Colorado. This new centralized location provides optimum delivery
scheduling for programs that require quick turnaround and coordinated rollout coast-to-coast.
Probanners unique online design tool enables users to create their own custom
signs and banners using hundreds of templates and thousands of clip art options.
Customers can also upload their own designs or clip art. The application was designed to
be simple, easy, and even fun such that even novice computer users can create custom signage
literally in minutes.
Probanners and the Environment
Probanners partners with Mission Wear, a non-profit organization, to allow customers
to recycle their banners. Mission Wear uses recycled materials to make reusable grocery bags
and employs disadvantaged woman to sew the bags, thereby helping both the environment and the women.
