Banners are versatile, and by considering the different materials you can print on, in reality, you can use a custom banner for almost any project. We have tested a variety of materials to print on, each giving a different vibe. Your banner can be as fancy or informal as the occasion dictates.
Here are some of our most popular custom banner materials:
- 13oz vinyl
- Super Smooth
- Blockout Vinyl
- Canvas and other printed fabrics
Vinyl is the standard banner material, and it makes up about 95% of what we produce. We print directly to the vinyl with photo quality results. 13oz is the most common weight vinyl material, and it can be used for both indoor and outdoor banners, including street banners, pole banners, sports banners, tradeshow banners and more!
Super Smooth vinyl material has anti-curl edges that do not need to be hemmed. This material is used in retractable banners because the clean, strong finished edge never curls when the banner is displayed. Retractable banners expand your tradeshow display, and they are easy to pack and transport. They also look great in retail stores, doctor’s offices and lobbies.
Blockout vinyl material is a heavy duty 18oz vinyl. It’s perfect for double sided pole banners and street banners that may take a lot of beating. Light is blocked so the image on the opposite side does not show through on double sided banners. Use blockout vinyl for any outdoor banners, and you won’t regret it!
Mesh material can be used outdoors in high wind, allowing wind to pass through without blowing out the banner. Mesh is also useful when you would like some visibility and/or light to pass through your banner. We’ve seen mesh material used for custom printed window shades as well as office partitions. Even if you wouldn’t necessarily call it a “banner,” mesh can bring custom printed graphics into a very modern or professional atmosphere.
Finally, there are a variety of fabrics we can print your custom artwork on. Canvas is a popular choice because it is thick and durable. We can also print on linen, poplin, pack cloth, and upholstery vinyl. One customer chose to print their indoor banner on canvas for the warm, inviting feeling it brought to the cozy coffee shop atmosphere.
