What are printed vinyl banners?

Printed vinyl banners are flexible, printed signs that are made from vinyl sheets.

The vinyl used in banner printing is typically a durable PVC material that can withstand wind and weather conditions.

PVC is a strong material so it will not tear or easily damage and the PVC material absorbs ink well so text will always be legible, even when exposed to wind or rain.

Vinyl banners can be made in a variety of sizes, making them a versatile marketing tool or event branding and messaging medium.

They can be customized with logos, graphics, and text to match a business’s branding.

Most vinyl banners are printed on one side, but it is also possible to print two-sided vinyl banners.

Vinyl banners can be produced in any shape or size and are usually fixed with grommets in the corners to attach to stands.

Printed vinyl banners with eyelets are the most common type of banner produced.

Furthermore, vinyl banners can be laminated with an extra layer of vinyl for increased durability and protection against fading or water damage.

Most vinyl banners are also flame retardant, making them a safe choice for businesses that want to promote an event in a public space.


How is vinyl banner printing done?

Vinyl banner printing is done by digitally printing the design onto vinyl sheets, which are then cut into banners of the desired size and shape.

The banners can be either printed one side only or double-sided.

The banner design is loaded into a RIP or raster image processor program. The software then instructs the printer to print the design at the correct size and with the correct colours.

The most common printers used for vinyl banner printing are large format, solvent, eco solvent and latex printers. These printers use specialist types of ink that are both colourfast and weather proof.

Once printed the banners usually have grommets fitted at regular spaces to allow fitting in a wide range situations.
