More Information Back to top
Supreme, top-of-the-range banner material ideal for use on double-sided banners. Can also be used to create super-strong premium single-sided banners. Our double-sided block out banners are more robust and last longer, well worth paying the extra for if you need an added lifespan.
We use our block-out material for the production of double-sided banners. Between two layers of the white PVC fabric, there is a black separator which prevents the scrim from being transparent.
Quality and Strength
When quality and strength is paramount, this material is super durable, and top of the range so is ideal for use on single-sided banners too.
We use this material 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.
Event banner is a cheaper version of our Premium Banner. Produced in 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. A much better solution in the wind is our Mesh banner. Solid banners can tear in gusts of wind. 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. Fabric material benefits 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 the banner you have ordered.
Allow for Eyelets 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 excellent, be wary of text, numbers and logos.
Please set artwork should 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. The information displayed should be clear to read – consider how far away your target audience will be. Is your banner being viewed at a distance? Then add some contrast and make sure that the typefaces are legible. If you try to cram too much information onto a banner, then the text may end up too small to read!
