More Information Back to top
Supreme, top-of-the-range banner material ideal for use on double sided banners, but can also be used to create super-strong premium single sided banners. These banners are tougher and last longer, well worth paying the extra for if you need an added lifespan.
Our blockout material is used for the production of double sided banners. Between two layers of white banner there is a black separator which prevents the banner from being transparent.
Quality and Strength
When quality and strength is paramount, this material is super strong and top of the range so is ideal for use on single sided banners too.
This material is often used for scaffold banners, double-sided cafe barrier banners, projecting-wall banners and lamp post banners.

Alternative Banner Products
Double Sided Blockout Banners are an ideal solution where you need a super-tough or double-sided banner. Here are some alternatives for you to consider…
This is a cheaper version of our Premium Banner which is essentially produced on a slightly lower quality material – ideal for one-off or short-term events! Sizes are limited to 2.5m in one dimension.
Our standard premium banner material, ideal for mid to long-term banners. Printed full colour one side.
Larger and more exposed banners will act as a giant sail when the wind hits. This can rip the banner from its fixings or cause damage to the structure it is fitted to. Mesh PVC and Fabric materials benefit from thousands of tiny holes which allow some wind to pass through, thus reducing wind loading.
We offer a wide range of polyester and cotton based fabrics suitable for internal and external banners. Fabrics benefit from looking better, being much lighter (from 115gsm) and from being more environmentally-friendly. Fabrics are printed using our dye-sublimation process which produces stunning rich hues and vibrant eye-popping colours.
Banner Design Tips
Get your banner size right
You can design your banner at actual size or to scale, depending on the software you use. Ensure that your final print file will scale up in proportion to the size of banner you have ordered.
Allow for Eyelets and/or Pole Pockets in your design
Ensure that no critical information is within 100mm of the edge of your banner design, this allows room for eyelets, hems and other finishing options. Background images and graphics are fine, just be wary of text, numbers and logos.
Your artwork should be set to CMYK
Set your artwork to CMYK, as this matches the print process. If your artwork is in RGB mode, the colours may not come out as expected.
Colour matching to Pantone references is possible, but may take longer and will incur an extra charge. Files including pantone colours will be converted to CMYK unless you specify a colour match in your order.
Banners are first and foremost an advertising medium. Information displayed should be clear to read – consider how far away your target audience will be. If your banner is intended to be viewed from a distance then the contrast should be high and typefaces need to be legible. If you try to cram too much information onto a banner then the text may end up too small to read!
