What to look out for when you're buying a printed banner
What type of material are banners printed on?
Standard banner material - Two things to look for here; the weight of the banner PVC (heavier is stronger) and if it is reinforced. We use 500gsm nylon reinforced PVC which is ideal for outdoor use.
Mesh banner material - this material allows some wind to pass through so it can be useful if your site is exposed.
Blackout banner material - if you are thinking of having a double sided print, for example on a cross street or lamppost banner, blackout material prevents any show through.
Recyclable banner material - you will pay a slight premium for this type of banner material and it is not as thick or durable as standard banner PVC, but it reduces the impact on the environment and may be more suitable for your companies green policy. This material is quite often used by supermarkets.
Fabric banner material - this alternative to PVC is popular when you want a more traditional canvas effect, perhaps to advertise your restaurant or gallery opening. Fabric banners can be used both indoors or outdoors.
Inks used for banner printing
For outside use inks need to be UV stable, so that they won’t fade in the sunlight. Some banners are printed using solvent inks but at Discount Displays we use eco-friendly HP latex inks. These are friendly to the environment with vibrant colours that will give long term outdoor use. Our banner s are printed using HP latex eco-friendly inks, which have the added advantage of being odour free, making them ideal for schools and food halls.
Some banner printers run their printers at less than optimum speeds to increase their throughput, but this can compromise print quality. The argument goes that banners might be viewed from a distance, so print quality is not critical. Spend a little more however and you will get crisp text and bright colours that show off your company in the best light.
How you have your banner finished depends on how you want to display it. There are lots of ways to hang a banner, and to find the best method for your requirements we have a free guide - how to hang a banner. If you want cheap banners for short term advertising use you can get away with a cut edge and eyelets. For longer term use you should go for turned double thickness welded or sewn edges with eyelets or pockets , which helps prevent the banner tearing outdoors.
