Three new NCWNZ banners debuted at a Wellington Branch event on 5th September 2023

The Wellington Branch has refreshed their NCWNZ banners with some beautiful new designs, developed by Wellington Branch Social Media Officer Ashlee Metcalfe. The banners were debuted at the Annual Women’s Debate 2023 in Wellington and easily stole the show.

The first banner shows a famous quote by Kate Sheppard, suffragist leader and Founding President of NCWNZ, which reads: “All that separates, whether of race, class, creed, or sex, is inhuman, and must be overcome.”

The second banner contains a collage of black and white photos taken at Wellington Branch meetings and events in recent years, with the classic NCWNZ prompt to “join us to make equality, reality.”

The third banner contains bold white text on a purple background which reads “making gender equality reality.”

Each banner also has both the NCWNZ logo and Gender Equal NZ logo along the bottom.

If you would like to print these banners to keep and use in your own Branches, Ashlee has kindly provided the designs for the two text banners, as they are generic enough to be used around the country in all spaces. The two banners as PDFs, and the Adobe Illustrator working file if needed, can be downloaded from the Wellington Branch Google Drive.

The full bleed size (artwork size) is as follows:
850mm x 2060mm / 1000mm x 2060mm / 1200mm x 2060mm (10mm top and 50mm bottom)
+ 10mm space at the top for clamping purpose
+ 50mm space at the bottom to be attached to the spring mechanism

We ordered the three deluxe roll up banners from Banner Express. If you use a different printer, Ashlee recommends you ask for a digital proof to make sure the banner will print with the expected borders, colours, and measurements.

A huge mihi and thank you to past NCWNZ National President and Wellington Branch member Vanisa Dhiru who generously sponsored the printing and delivery of these banners.
