Eco-Friendly Latex Ink Printing

Latex inks are a serious alternative to solvent-based inks. They are 70% water and do not contain the volatile organic compounds found in other outdoor inks. They are cleaner, greener, nickel-free and print at a higher quality. Use Latex Inks particularly in sensitive environments like food areas and healthcare facilities.
Latex inks give off zero smell and are non-flammable.

Use the Recyclable Logo on your Design

By using the Code 1 Plastics Recycling Badge on your design, you can help to ensure that your Eco Banner is correctly recycled. Download the Code 1 vector PDF here.

Alternative Banner Products

Eco Banner 220 is ideal as an inexpensive advertising medium, producing an environmentally-friendly high-quality banner that lasts and at a low price. Here are some alternatives for you to consider.

Eco Banner 300

Glossier and thicker than Eco Banner 220. Made from PP – Polypropylene, this banner conforms to Plastic Recycling Code 5, also making it 100% recyclable.

Eco Mesh Banner

Used for more exposed locations, tiny holes in the fabric allow wind to pass through. Made from PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate), this banner conforms to Plastic Recycling Code 1, making it 100% recyclable.

Event Banner PVC

Our event banner is a cheaper version of our Premium Banner. Printed on a slightly lower quality material – ideal for one-off or short-term events! Sizes are limited to 2.5m in one dimension.

Double-Sided Blockout PVC Banner

This Double-sided banner material, ideal for double-sided prints (think banners on lamp posts) or where an extremely tough material is required. 650gsm rather than 500gsm, this material also benefits from a block out liner which prevents light show-through.

Mesh PVC Banner

Larger and more exposed banners will act as a giant sail when the wind hits. Non-mesh products can rip the material from its fixings or cause damage to the structure from which it’s attached. Mesh PVC and Fabric materials benefit from thousands of tiny holes which allow some wind to pass through, thus reducing wind loading.

Fabric Banners

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.

Which Banner Should I Buy? Premium or Event?

Banner Finishing

Crucial to the quality and longevity of any Eco Banner are the methods used to finish it. Standard finishing including hems, eyelets and Pole Pockets is included free of charge.

Banner Sizes

We print Eco Banners on roll widths up to 5 metres wide. Banners that are larger than 5 metres both horizontally and vertically we would join with a seam.

Eco Banners – Fitting Methods

Banner Tension Frame

Traditionally used for flex face or illuminated backlit banners, there are now many low-profile banner tension frame systems on the market. Some allow the fast changeover of banners for seasonal promotions. These frames tension the material like a drumskin, giving a robust sign effect. Check your tension frame specifications before ordering your banner. Some systems require just additional material around the outer. Other flex face systems require specific pole pockets, while others require a solid rubber edging welded in.

Wall Screws

Typically long length screws can be used, with large penny washers over the eyelets to protect the banner. It is vital to achieving the proper tension on banners fitted by this method – too loose and the wind will cause the banner to flap and affect hems and eyelets.

Bungee Ties

Once you have your fixing points on the wall. Typically it is an idea to use large eye or hook bolts – bungee clips or ties can be used to attach to the banner eyelets. This method tensions the banner as well as allowing some ‘give’ when the wind hits, thus protecting hems and eyelets.

Wire Frame & Bungee

A steel wireframe can be run through eye bolts approximately 300mm outside the banner. Once the wire is tensioned, the banner can be fitted using a zig-zag of bungee cord. Bungee Chord gives the effect of a trampoline on its side, tensions the banner and allows some ‘give’ for high winds.

Portable Banner Display Solutions

We stock a variety of mobile, easy-to-use, outdoor banner display solutions. These are ideal for outdoor events or special forecourt promotions.

Eco 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 suitable, and please be wary of text, numbers and logos.

You should set artwork 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

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.

Design Principles

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. To make sure your banner can is nicely visible 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!

Include the Recycling Logo!

Be sure to use the correct Plastic Recycling logo in your design so that when the banner comes to the end of it’s life, whoever disposes of it will know to recycle it. You can download the logos here.
