About Vinyl Banners
Vinyl Banners are printed on high quality 13 oz scrim vinyl banner material. The scrim vinyl is a woven fiber inside the material that gives the banner extra strength. You can use banners indoors and outdoors for many different occasions.

Vinyl Banner Printing:
Vinyl banners are digitally printed in full color. You can select one of our banner templates to customize in the online designer with our backgrounds, clip art and text. You can also upload your own images.
Vinyl Banner Sizes:
You can get a custom banner size up to 16 feet by 50 feet in length. Some of the most common banner sizes are 2' x 4', 3' x 6', 4' x 8' and 5' x 10'.
Exact sizes of banners cannot be guaranteed. Vinyl is a temperature sensitive material, and some fluctuation can occur due to heat application in printing, finishing, and outside climate. Please note our acceptable size variance is up to 1/2 inch per linear foot (ex. A 5 ft banner could finish with a 2.5 inch variance). If your banner size needs to be precise, please ask your Customer Service Representative to discuss your specific application.
The maximum print for double sided banners is 150 square feet. If your banner is over 150 square feet, please contact us.
If you need a specific size print that is not listed as an option in the drop-down menu, please request a quote or contact a customer service representative. 1-866-419-SIGN or firstname.lastname@example.org

Files that print best are .eps or .ai (in version CS5 or lower) converted to outline. We can also print high resolution .pdf, .tif, and .jpg formats. Typically 300 dpi or higher is suitable for banners.
We print in four color CMYK or six color CMYK, LC, LM. Please keep this in mind when submitting files for printing as color tone shifting may happen if file is submitted in RGB format. If there is a specific PMS color you need, please specify that to us when submitting your order so we can help you verify that the proper color mix is used (vector artwork only).
Customer supplied files are printed as they are received so we cannot guarantee color, clarity or final output as we are just printing the supplied files and have not set them up for printing.
All of our printers are calibrated daily to ICC coloring profile standards to ensure accurate color production.
