Bannerville USA has been a family owned business since 1973. Originally begun by Emil Harley (and known as Emil Harley and Associates until 1985), we were one of the very first manufacturers of light pole banners in the United States. We began banner programs in Cincinnati, Cleveland, St. Louis, Fresno, Reno, and, of course, Chicago, which remains our premier client!
In the early days, all of our banners were screen printed onto canvas. In 2004, we purchased our first digital printing machine, and made the conversion to the digital age. Today, we operate multiple large format digital printers that produce all of our high quality products.
In 2005, Ken and Patti Sitkowski purchased the company from Patti's father, and relocated the operation to our current location in Burr Ridge, Illinois. Along with the move, we began to add more product lines, and also began to work on new and exciting projects in schools, retail centers, and small businesses. While we continue to excel in light pole banners we are excited to work with you on your unique projects.
Over the last 45 years, we are proud to have worked with over 100 Chicagoland schools - printing and installing custom school products such as wall murals, record boards, and championship banners. Through this experience, we have witnessed firsthand the positive effect school spirit has on our children and young adults.
Bannerville is not only proud of our high quality printing, but we are one of the few Chicago area companies that also offer installation services for all of our products. We also have in house graphic artists to assist you with your design needs.
