About Vinyl Banners

Vinyl Banners are printed on high-quality 13 oz. scrim vinyl or 18 oz. heavy-duty scrim vinyl. Vinyl Banners are digitally printed in full CMYK color with UV-resistant ink and are suitable for both indoor as well as outdoor use. Our 13 oz. vinyl material is available in a glossy or a matte finish, while our 18 oz. vinyl is only available in matte finish.

Our 13 oz. matte vinyl material can be up to 16 feet by 50 feet without seams. The maximum print size for our 13 oz. glossy vinyl material, as well as our 18 oz. vinyl material is 8 feet by 50 feet. 

The standard finishing option is heat-welded hems and grommets placed every 2-4 feet around the banner perimeter. Additional finishing options include pole pockets, reinforced hems and reinforced corners. You can order full-color banners or text-only banners. Full-color banners can have unlimited text, clip art, backgrounds or photographs. Text-only banners have a white background with colored text and are our lowest cost option.

About No-Curl Vinyl Banners

Only available with our banner stands, our no-curl vinyl banners are digitally printed in full color on a 14 oz. vinyl banner material. This material is commonly used for high-end displays and banner stands. The no-curl banners can only be cut to size. They do not include hems, but you can add grommets to the banner for hanging.

About Mesh Banners

Mesh Banners are digitally printed in full color on 8 oz. scrim vinyl. The material has crisscrossed fibers that allow some air to pass through the material. While the material is slightly transparent up close, you can still see the printed graphics from almost any distance. This material is used outdoors in windy locations instead of putting wind slits in vinyl banners. Mesh banners can be up to 16 feet by 50 feet without seams. Standard finishing is heat-welded hems with grommets. Additional finishing options are pole pockets, reinforced hems, and reinforced corners. They are commonly used around sports fields as a screen or for advertisements.

Canvas banners are a type of indoor banner. They have a premium texture that is similar to a painted canvas. They are commonly used for high-end displays and backdrops. Canvas banners can be printed up to 4.5 feet by 12 feet. The standard finishing options include sewn hems and grommets. You can also get pole pockets.

About Fabric Banners

Fabric Banners are indoor banners that have a higher-end look and feel than vinyl banners. Our fabric banners are made from premium polyester/nylon blended material called banner soft. Fabric banners are printed using a neat technique called dye-sublimation where the ink is sublimated, or heat-cured into the fabric. This method results in vibrant, long-lasting colors The standard finishing option is a folded sewn hem and grommets.

Additional finishing options include cut-to-size or pole pockets.
