Mesh is a perforated 300gsm PVC banner material allowing some of the wind to pass through the sign banner. This reduces reducing wind load and the risk of your banner ripping from its fixings. This makes it ideal for larger weatherproof banners. It also allows some light to pass through which can be a benefit on scaffold wraps on construction sites.
With thousands of tiny holes in the material which means less resistance to gusts of wind. Despite the holes over 70% of the banner is printed giving an eye-catching image.
Another use is for mesh banners is a promotional window banner. A traditional PVC banner would block all the light mesh banners are a good solution in these situations.
Our Printed Mesh banners can be cut to size, finished with turned edges and eyelets or provided with pole pockets, ideal for scaffold poles or cafe barriers.

Whether you're a novice or a professional when it comes to artwork, we're here to give you the guidance needed to make sure your end result is print perfect.
If you have the elements, such as text, logos, and text, we can take these and create a print ready design layout for you at a small additional cost. We have a number of affordable set price packages available to suit any requirements. Many of our products have a design service as an additional extra for instant ordering. For products that don't please contact us to discuss your brief. Visit our in-house design service page to find out more.
Many of our print products have the option to upload your artwork on the product page. If that option is not available, you will receive an email shortly after placing your order with instructions on how to send your artwork files.
In order to avoid any delays in production, please follow our guidelines below to make sure your artwork is ready to go. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch to talk to one of our team.
Resolution - 100dpi At Full Size
Generally, 100 dpi is a good standard for images with the document size set at full size of the large format printed product. For example, if you want to order a 40"×60" print, the image size should be 4000 pixels (40 x 100) by 6000 pixels (60 x 100) at 100 dpi.100% scale at 100 dpi
50% scale at 200 dpi
25% scale at 400 dpi
10% scale at 1000 dpi
If any dimension of the product is greater than 5000mm, please produce the artwork to scale. For very large artwork such as hoarding walls, 10% scale can be utilised at 1000dpi for images, or use vectors as these will scale perfectly.
Bleed - 5mm All Around At The Final Print Size
If you are creating set size artwork for hardware then please use the product template. If you have ordered a custom size product please ensure you include 5mm of bleed on your design.
You only need to add print bleed to your artwork if the design extends to the edge of the page. If all of your text and images are in the centre of the design and are surrounded by a plain white background, you won’t need to worry about print bleed as the edges will blend seamlessly into your overall design. If any element of the design goes right up to the edge of the page, a 5mm bleed on all sides is necessary.
Colours - Please Supply All Colours As CMYK+
Computer screens use RGB, while printers use CMYK. You may ask why this matters? Most colours created in RGB can be closely matched in CMYK but some cannot. If colours are critical we always suggest ordering a printed proof.
Other things you can do to check your colours:- Use a calibrated monitor (colours vary from monitor to monitor)
- Use a printed CMYK colour swatch to check your colours
- Don't check samples from a desktop printer
- Order a printed proof from us (this may cause an increase in lead time)
Fonts - Please Embed, Flatten, Or Convert To Curves
For large format print, we recommend that the minimum font site is 8pt (point size).
Our preferred file format for print-ready artwork is a PDF, please make sure you embed any fonts for perfect results. With other file formats please ensure fonts used in your design are converted to outlines and include all fonts and images used when you send your files to us.
Do You Need A Proof?
If you are providing print ready artwork, we do not provide a proof as standard, which enables us to get your print to you quicker. If you require a proof please get in touch with us to discuss. We do provide a free technical file check as standard, as outlined below.
We can provide a machine print proof for the extra cost of £25 plus delivery. This involves printing an A3 proof on the machine that will be used to produce your final print. This will give you an accurate representation of colour. If you are using our design service, we do send out a PDF proof, which is an accurate representation of content and positioning. It is not an exact indicator of the final colour due to the limitations of screens.
Quoted delivery dates for print are from approval of artwork, so please bear in mind that requesting a proof may delay the delivery date of your product.
After you have placed your order a provisional despatch and delivery date will be sent to you via email.
Our standard delivery time for printed products is 2-5 working days after artwork has been approved for print. If you have a specific deadline, please contact us to ensure we can meet this. Please check that your artwork meets the guidelines above to prevent any delays in approval.
Free Artwork Check
Before we go to print, we will carry out a free technical check on your artwork. If there are any issues, we will contact you to let you know what needs to be changed.
Our printers and media are of the highest standard and are carefully calibrated to produce vibrant, full colour prints. The process involves CMYK printing and this means it is not always possible to match Pantone colours, but they will be converted to the nearest CMYK equivalent.
If exact colour matching is critical, please send us a physical copy of other printed material, such as a letterhead or brochure, and we will check your file prior to printing. If we cannot achieve a reasonable match we will call you to discuss.
Please send any physical examples to: Discount Displays, 31-35 Wortley Road, Croydon, Surrey, CRO 3EB.

Are custom printed Mesh PVC banners waterproof?
Yes they are designed for outdoor use
Can mesh be printed on both sides?
We do not offer double-sided mesh banner printing at this time
What is the benefit of mesh over PVC banner material?
The biggest difference between mesh and PVC banners is that the mesh is a 70:30 ratio of material and holes. Mesh material allows for wind to more easily pass through the banner when used outside.
Are the edges of your mesh banners hemmed?
All of our mesh banners come with hemmed edges and with eyelets included in the price at no additional cost giving the banner extra durability
Can I make a vertical banner instead of horizontal?
Yes, no problem just make sure your design reflects this
What are the popular uses of PVC Mesh?
Heras fencing, Cross street banners scaffold banners, Fence banners and any location where windage on a traditional banner may cause problems
How good is the print quality?
Unlike many of our competitors, we do not run our printers at top speed and print our banners to the same quality that we print our other products. So you get bright crisp colours and no banding.
How crisp is the image?
Because of the micro holes in the mesh, the image is not as crisp and the colours not as deep as you will get ion a standard banner but still perfectly good for a banner
Why choose mesh?
If you’re looking for an outdoor banner that’s lightweight and less resistant to wind a mesh banner is a great choice. The mesh design will allow wind to travel through the banner, whereas a standard PVC will catch more wind. Even though mesh banners are better in windy conditions they should still be taken down before extremely windy conditions.
What kind of printing process do you use for your mesh banners
We use state of the art large format HP printers using UV stable latex inks which are environmentally friendly
