A Good Banner Has Endless Uses
Vinyl banners are the most durable and commonly used banners for outdoor display purposes. Choose between a 13 oz. or 18 oz. vinyl to print on, depending on your intended use. Typically, the heavier the material, the greater the durability. Thirteen-ounce (13 oz.) vinyl is your best bet for everyday display. Don’t let a lightweight material fool you; this banner is impressively durable and versatile. Case in point, our 13 oz. vinyl material is the same material used for billboards! Eighteen ounce (18 oz.) vinyl is a special-use material for heavy-duty display (like at construction sites). A higher ounce count means greater durability and tensile strength. Regardless of weight, vinyl banners offer exceptional image quality and display versatility.
Mesh banners are a loose weaved pattern, allowing for wind to blow through, while leaving enough surface to provide a vivid print. Mesh banners are great for building wraps and events. The mesh construction used for our mesh banners reduces weight and allows wind and light to pass through the banner – don’t worry, the quality of the printed design is still maintained. It’s important to note that the colors and graphics on these banners are often described as “lighter” or “muted” when compared to their vinyl and/or fabric counterparts. For the best image quality, mesh banners are best viewed from a distance. Functionality is the name of the game for mesh banners, especially when displayed outdoors, as they boast both wind resistance and a semi-transparent effect when displayed.
These are the materials banners are most frequently made of, but this doesn’t even begin to cover the multi-faceted applications of each type of banner material. From vinyl pole banners, to fabric wall displays, to mesh fence barricades; there are endless uses for a good banner.
