Express Banners


Alicia Cooke and Haydn Chandler wanted to create a product that gave their customers what they wanted (fast and cheap), kept the work in Australia and provided a higher quality product then our competitors.  


That is where Express Banners was born.


Express Banners is an online banner printing service, providing a good quality product at the lowest price, produced in the shortest possible time. They print pull-up banners and outdoor vinyl banners, and have an Australia-wide customer base, so each day they are shipping banners all over the country.


The company use the latest innovation in printing to provide large format printing at an affordable price, in a short time-frame.


Customers order their item online, upload their artwork, pay for their items and Express Banners ship the next business day. For those that don’t have artwork Alicia and Haydn also offer a design service.


“After running signage business for many years we found that our customers were after the best possible price and they often want things yesterday. We also discovered that many of the larger banner manufacturers were having banners produced in China and shipped to Australia within a few days making it very hard to compete in this market as Chinese products could be produced at a fraction of the costs of producing here in Australia,” said Alicia.


“We started the business in Newcastle, before moving it to the Hunter Valley just over 12 months ago. We look forward to growing the business in this region and be able to provide employment opportunities to the local community.


“We have access to a really good courier network that connects us with the rest of the country.



“Located in Pokolbin, we enjoy working in a rural setting, but still be able to provide a great service to the entire country.


“Many of our competitors are located in Sydney. We can offer the same service but enjoy the rural lifestyle of living and working in the Cessnock Region.


“We still operate our signage business from the same facility.


“By creating an online product it connects us to the rest of the world and opens up a completely new customer base to what we service with our signage business.


The internet has changed the way we do business and there are so many new opportunities that can be tapped into that connect you with an audience you could not otherwise reach,” says Alicia.


As an online business, Express Banners do not have a store front or a business phone contact. You can contact Alicia and Haydn via email, and they can call you to discuss your order, if needed.
