These adjustable banner frames work well to display your club's NSN banners at events, both inside and outside. A fun DIY project for crafty outreach volunteers! You can download detailed instructions on how to create your own rugged display frames below, along with a parts list and a handy guide on using your newly completed adjustable banner frames. These instructions are in PDF format.

The banners and these handy DIY guides were created by Jerelyn Ramirez of the Kansas Astronomical Observers, and these frames find a great deal of use at their outreach events. We'd like to thank Jerelyn for sharing the results of her hard work with the NSN community!

Update on August 8, 2018: The folks at the Back Bay Amateur Astronomers, inspired by Jerelyn's design, have created a  version of the frames that they use for their outreach events that uses a few less parts (see above photo). Find out how they built it here.
