  1. Get two polyethylene tarps... One black and one orange.  Both of these tarps can be found at Tarps Plus.  Here is the link for both tarps: Silver/Black Tarps and Orange Poly Tarps.  The tarp banner can be any size you like.  To cover a garage door like the picture attached here the tarp should be a 6'x20' tarp.
