The Basic Information about Vinyl Banners Printing

The most famous of all are the vinyl banners. They 're made of (scrim) polyester and vinyl. Although the polyester adds weight to the poster, the vinyl retains the printed image on the banner.

The material is calculated on the basis of a square yard of material in unces. Vinyl has weight ranging from 8 oz per square foot to 22 oz. The weight is considered in determining the position at which it will be used. Therefore the heavier material is used for windy areas and the lighter one can be used when the banner is fixed to the wall.

The default vinyl sizes are 10, 13, and 14 oz. The 10 oz material is used for printing on indoor banners. This is not very long-lasting and is good if short-term promotion is needed. The 13 oz value vinyl is tear-resistant and can be used indoors and outdoors unless the climate is intense. The 14 oz vinyl is good for shows outdoors.

The vinyl can be of different smoothness forms. The prints come in glossy and matte materials. The matte banner has the textured finish that does not shine in the light. And the shiny one is just the reverse. This has a smooth surface and if exposed to light this glares strongly.

The matte surface is more common among buyers of vinyl banners, as it does not look "too plastic" like the bright one. However, if it's well-lit it looks great. While the glossy prints do not allow dust to penetrate, matte banners get dirty faster though.

If you would use the exterior vinyl banner, it is best to use the mentioned methods below to make them more stable.

  • Web-enhanced hemming is the stitching of a nylon stripping into the banner's hem. This method makes the banner heavier and more wind resistant.
  • Pole strengthened hemming pockets are ideal for windy areas. This means a cable is threaded across the banner's top and bottom pole sections.
