The Seventh Avenue Merchants Association (SAMA) is seeking design submissions for new street banners. Currently there are 42 light pole banners that line the Melrose District (7th Ave from Camelback to Indian School Road). SAMA is seeking to have those banners updated and replaced with three different designs reflecting the themes: shopping, dining and services.

Details of submission:

Banners are 26 inches wide by 64 inches tall. Designs must be in full color and contain the SAMA branding in a visible and prominent way. Designer must submit graphics for all three themes (shopping, dining and services). Designs will leave a 26 inch wide by 15 inch tall blank space at the bottom of each banner for banner sponsor information. This blank space can coordinate in color and feel with the overall design. All submissions must be in either .pdf or .ai format and must be print ready. Design must submitted by Wednesday August 22, 2012. The winning design will be announced Friday August 31, 2012.

Please email all submissions to with “2012 banner designs” in the subject line.
