Make your own banners with printable letters

To save from wasting paper when printing, print one letter then flip your paper over and print another letter. You should end up with 2 letters per page.

Print one letter - flip your paper over

For my printer, once one letter printed, I just flipped the paper over. The letter D I had printed first was face down and pulled through the printer face up.

Print a second letter

Think of all the fun banners you can make! Names, sentiments, welcome messages and more. You can decrease the letter size when you print to make smaller banners too!

HAPPY banner you can make yourself

Even decorating in the snow can be fun with a Happy banner, right?

  1. THANK YOU!! These letters were perfect for our last day of school/promotion/continuation banner. I could not figure out how to change the printer ink settings and after 30 minutes of trying I gave up. Then I figured out I could just reprint the letter over. It was time intensive but took much less time than trying to figure out printer & computer settings. Three printing times per letter was the magic number for a darkness that would match the boldness of our banner colors.

  2. the small but nice conversation between you and and a lot of people who downloaded these printables makes me so much happier after i downloaded it.

    thank you so much for sharing these wonderful alphabet banners!

  3. Thanks for these letters, I was using the “j” and the bottom of the “J” the edge of the ball is cut off…how can I fix this? I re downloaded it in case there was a problem with my download and its the same.

    • Hi Dawn, Thank you so much for taking the time to write about this issue. I’ve updated the letter “j” and uploaded a whole new file. Please let me know how this works for you!

  4. I will be using these to welcome my students back to class this fall. I plan to print them on butcher paper cardstock since I am using the chalkboard and burlap style. This will really make the letters pop. I am so excited to use these! Thank you for sharing!

  5. Exactly what I was looking for – I made a cute rustic banner using striped pearlescent paper from Hobby Lobby with craft paper behind for accent, hanging from a twine rope. Spray painted mini plastic clothespins silver to clip the letters to the twin. This was for my son’s graduation. Thank you!

    • What a brilliant graduation project, I’m so glad you stopped by to tell me about it! I hope the party is a big success and Congrats to your son!

  6. This was a wonderful site to go to. No gimmicks or tricks to perform to actually get to the download itself. Straight forward, and great free “gift” available. Love this site, it is great.

  7. These are wonderful! Thanks for posting this freebie – I am a first year music teacher preparing my elementary classroom and these should work for my reward board! Thanks for making this free!

    • Oh I’m so excited you can use these banners to decorate your classroom! Stop by the facebook page and post a photo if you’d like to share your finished board. Thank you so much for the note!

  8. I love this banner. Is there any way you could make one with a heart on it? I’m trying to make a banner for a bridal shower.

    Thank you

  9. I am so excited about the banner letters! I am going to use them for an adoption shower that we are giving for a family in our church. They are adopting 2 boys with special needs from China. Your banner will say “Our wishes for You”, and then a second banner will have scriptures and Chinese characters of the key word in the scripture. Thank you for giving me a creative way to do this.

    • Lorie, thank you so much for the note! It makes me so happy to hear about your creative fun, I’m so glad you stopped by to let me know how you are using this banner set. What a great gift for the adopting family and their new little boys!

  10. Hi. These are awesome! Thank you so much! I was wondering if there’s a way you can enlarge it to one huge letter per page instead of half a page? I need the banner to write HAPPY RETIREMENT. If so, please let me know. Will be really grateful! Thanks!

  11. These are fabulous! I already printed one for my Christmas decorations this year. Love LoVe LOVE it. Thank you!

    I was hoping to print off another using the asterisk symbol but can only find the ! and & on the symbols download. Did I download the wrong one?

    • Hi Jannie, I’m sorry you’re having a hard time with this download. The symbols should include: instruction page, !, &, ? and * pages. I just verified the download.. it downloads as a zipped file with those 5 pdf files inside. Maybe try re-downloading and let me know how that goes?

      • Oh my goodness.. what is going on?! I’m sorry you’re having problems too. This is purely a test… but I think I figured it out. I had the file named *.pdf — I think some computers hide that kind of file name, so I’ve renamed the asterisk to asterisk.pdf and re-uploaded the entire package. Please feel free to download again and see if that helps! Thank’s for letting me know.

  12. I’m running across letters that won’t print. Today it was a ‘K’ and ‘S’. The rest of the letters for “give thanks” printed fine.

    • Hi Denise, I’m so sorry these letters are giving you a problem when printing. Can you tell me if there is an error… or what is happening when you try to print? Thank you for coming by to let me know!

  13. I can’t seem to open documents once I’ve downloaded. Has anyone else had this problem? Shame as I really wanted to use them.


    • Hi Cheryl, how are you downloading the files? On a computer or a tablet or a phone? The files are usually a PDF format. I’ll try to help as best I can!

  14. These are awesome, exactly what I was looking for! I was wondering, do you have one that has “1st” on it? I’m trying to make a banner for my son’s 1st birthday!

    • Oh I’m sorry, I do not yet.. but I will make sure to create one ASAP! If you want to DIY your own – print out the s and t, smaller and cut them out with a circle punch and glue them to the 1. 😀

    • Karen thank you so much for the note. I apologize, I have added a 4th download that includes the 4 symbols. Thank you for letting me know!
