LANSING, Ill. (September 28, 2020) – The Lansing Area Chamber of Commerce is again accepting orders for street pole banners to be placed around Lansing. The program is open to local businesses that want to have their company or organization name placed on banners along Ridge Road, Torrence Avenue, and Burnham Avenue.
“The banners are a great way to advertise for your business. They only come down a couple times a year as other things go up like the Christmas decorations or the flags around the Fourth of July. But otherwise they’re up for the bulk of two years,” Lansing Chamber Director Amy Todd said.
The Banner program is renewed every two years, and the next batch of banners will have patriotic colors to match the Hometown Heroes banner program that the Mayor Patty Eidam has worked to start. The Hometown Heroes banner program will place banners around the Village featuring the photos and names of Lansing residents who have served, or are serving, in a branch of the U.S. military. The full story on the Hometown Heroes banner program is available here.
The next round of Chamber banners will go up in 2021 after the holiday decorations are taken down. According to the Chamber website, there are 100 spots available.
“Any business in [Lansing] can purchase [a Chamber banner], but a Chamber member gets a better discount on it,” Todd said.
Pricing for the two-year banners is listed below:

These prices include printing the banner, brackets for hanging, banner display and take-down by Lansing Public Works, and two years of display (minus the months when other decorations are up).
Banners are printed 30 in. x 72 in. on both sides and the sponsor’s name or design will be placed in the middle of the banner. Easy-to-read logos or text is recommended and website, phone, and address information is not allowed on the banner. Designs must be sent in vector format and are due, with payment, by Oct. 26.
