When I think “banner,” shiny white plastic material usually comes to mind, but there are actually many materials, including fabrics, that we print on that can be used in lieu of traditional vinyl banner material. When Ambitions Disability Support Services described the type of banner they were looking for, we knew fabric banners would be just right for their upcoming event.
“This is a unique job because we are using canvas instead of banner material or tyvek. The customer wanted a richer feel to the final product,” Signs for Success designer Will Oakley said.
The weight and warmth of the Picasso canvas fabric gives just the richness the customer was looking for. When finished, it looks more like artwork than a banner. In most cases, we use vinyl banner material with banner stands, but in reality, there are a variety of materials we can print on for use with banner stands. Linen, pack cloth and poplin are a few other popular fabrics we print on.
The customer also wanted to make sure we could print color to the edge. We did print to the edge, then finished the edges with banner tape. Finally, grommets were placed in all four corners of the banner for easy hanging on grasshopper banner stands. One thing we love about banner stands is that you can change out your message for different events easily by switching out the banner. The stands themselves are durable and will withstand several years of use. Banner stands are designed to be easily transportable – they’re lightweight, and they fold down neatly for storage or travel. They expand out when you need to display your banner and are accommodating for a range of banner sizes.
These canvas fabric banners were used at a business conference in Tahoe, and Ambitions will be able to use them at many future conferences and promotional events as well. For a unique and classy look, try using fabric banners for tradeshows, office banners, restaurant banners, parade banners, and more.
