Soak Up the Rain Customizable Banner

A customized banner can be produced using the file below to add your organization name, seal/logo, website URL, and other contact information. To customize your own Soak Up the Rain banner, follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Download the PowerPoint file labeled Soak Up the Rain Banner Customizable 2016.

  2. Open the file and replace the editable text and graphics box with your own content.

  3. You can decide the specific placement of your content as well as the size, color, and font of the text within the editable area.

  4. To ensure quality, the file for your logo or seal should contain an image of similar size or bigger than what will appear on the final product.

  5. Once you have a suitable layout for the banner, save the file.

  6. While printing directly from the PowerPoint file is acceptable, saving it as an Adobe PDF (Export) provides the best file for printing.

Troubleshooting Tip

Turning off image compression in PowerPoint allows full resolution of images and prevents blurry, low resolution print-outs. To turn off compression in Powerpoint: Go to File, then Options, and choose Advanced. Scroll down to "Image Size and Quality" and check the box next to "Do not compress images in file".

The banner has been designed to be printed as large as 48" x 36". Printing documents larger than their intended size may cause distortion and degradation of image quality.
