High-Quality Banners, Low Cost

A high-quality event banner printed onto high quality 510gsm front light material. Ideal for events, festivals and exhibitions, our 510gsm event banners are printed using durable UV print technology. For more long term soloution then please take a look at our premium trade 500gsm banners.

For example, x4 event banners at 3m x 1m will cost only £96.00 plus vat! You can even send different artwork for each banner!

Ideal For

Use Event Banners for sports events, school banners, promotional banners, personalised birthday banners, festival banners, promotional banners and more. These are an excellent solution for an outdoor trade show stand, banner display stands or as short-term fence graphics.

Event Banner VS Premium Trade Banner

Event Banner 510gsm is a cheaper material than our Premium PVC 500gsm banner, hence the lower cost to you. These banners are printed and finished the same way as our premium banners. The material looks very similar to our premium PVC; our event banner is laminated PVC, which is generally standard sign shop grade. Ideal for short to mid-term usage. Why spend more on premium material if your banners are only to be used once for a short period?

High-Quality Banner Printing

510gsm event banner is printed using high-quality UV print technology. This print process allows us to quickly make high-quality banners which will stand up to the elements.

Event Banner Sizes

We print Event Banners on roll widths up to 2500mm. More sizeable banners are printed on premium 500gsm banner material at widths up to 5m. Banners larger than 5m in one direction, are bonded together using a high-frequency welding process.

Alternative Banner Products

Event Banners are, of course, ideal as a cheap banner solution, producing a high-quality print at a low price. Here are some alternatives for you to consider.

Premium PVC Banner

The main difference here is the quality of the banner material. It is stronger and will last longer, printed on roll widths up to 5 metres.

Double-Sided Blockout Banner

We use 650gsm banner material for our double-sided banners. 650 gsm is a heavy-duty material, and it’s used for:

Robust single-sided banners, as well as double-sided PVC banners.

If you see lamp post banners, then its highly likely 650 gsm block banner material has been used to manufacture this type of banner. Double-sided banner material has a block out liner which prevents light show-through.

Mesh Banner

Larger and more exposed banners will act as a giant sail when the wind hits. The wind can rip the banner from its fixings or cause damage to the structure it is affixed. Mesh PVC banners and printed Fabric materials benefit from lots of small holes which can let the air pass through the printed face. The added airflow reduced 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.

Design Guide for Event Banners

Set your dimensions correctly

Please set your artwork to the correct proportions of your final printed event banner. We do not require any bleed on the artwork for an event banner. If necessary, you can set your artwork to scale.

Set the correct CMYK colour settings

Please make sure that you set your colour settings to CMYK. Our UV printers use a full-colour printing process which works using CMYK inks. Files that are sent to use using an RGB setup will be changed automatically. Sometimes this can make the colours on your printed banner seem weak & washed out. We will check for this before printing and contact you if required.

Position of eyelets on your Printed Event Banners

Please leave clear area approx 50mm inside the outside of the banner. Background images and colours are ok. Please make sure that no essential text elements, small print or logos are in the safe area of the eyelets. It is not advised to have just eye holes (without the hem) as this can cause the material to rip.

We space our eyelets approx every 500mm apart unless otherwise stated. Eyelets will be evenly spaced so eyelet spacing might vary slightly on different sizes of banners.

Event Banner Design Principles

Because event banners are ideal for advertising, its always important to think of viewing distances. Create your artwork to give the highest possible impact. Contrasting colours will give your banner much more clout than washed out subtle colours.

Also, think about text sizes. The larger the text, the easier it will be viewed from a distance. Use upper and lower fonts. Look at road signs as they are all in upper and lower type rather than all capitals. Subconsciously your eyes will read upper and lower (sentence case) — font type. Usually clearer fonts work better than stripey unreadable fonts. Look at most leading brands, i.e. McDonald’s, IKEA, B&Q, Dominos Pizza – all these companies use very readable fonts and typefaces.

Less is more, cramming every little bit of information onto your banner probably isn’t a good idea. Remember to use space and give your design space to breathe. The best adverts are always simple and straight to the point. Remember your average viewer needs to read your message in 3 seconds or less.

Event Banner Fitting Methods

Wall Screws

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.

Cable Ties

Plastic cable ties are ideal for fixing Event Banners to fencing or railings.

Bungee Ties

This method tensions the banner as well as allowing some flex when the wind hits, thus protecting hems and eyelets. You will need to affix a fixing frame around the outer or some d ring anchor points.

Wire Frame & Bungee

For secure wall fixing a steel wire frame can be run though eye bolts approximately 300mm outside the banner. Once the wire is tensioned, the banner can be fitted using a zig-zag of bungee cord. The bungee chord gives the effect of a trampoline on its side, tensions the banner and allows some ‘give’ for high winds.

Frequently Asked Questions »

Will you check my artwork?

We will only check sizing and quality issues before production. Please be conscious that you are responsible to provide correct artwork.

Will you ship my parcel in plain packaging?

Yes. Plain packing is standard on all items. No branding will be shown inside or outside of the package.

I want to order x6 banners but have a few artworks. What do I do?

Upload the artworks and then let us know your breakdowns in the additional information box. We never charge any extra for multiple artworks.

What is the difference between event banner and premium banner?

Event banner is a laminated material which is cheaper to manufacture. Premium banner is a coated product which is much stronger and more suitable for longer term outside applications.

How long can this product last outside?

Up to 6 months outdoor life expectancy. Remember banners are only as good as they are fitted. If tightly attached to a wall it could last longer if in a sheltered area. For example if loosely attached to railings wind will move the banner and friction on the railing will cause the material to fray. The tighter the banner is fixed the less likely it is to get damaged.

Do you charge for hem and eyelets or pole pockets?

No. Standard finishing is included in the cost. Specialist finishing could be charged additionally.

How much are your shipping charges?

Orders that are over £250 will be shipped to a UK mainland address for free (excluding highlands) Orders under will be charged at £15 for UK mainland.

What is the specification of your eyelets?

Our eyelets are nickel plated. The centre hole has a diameter of 12mm and our eyelets are positioned approx every 500mm apart unless otherwise stated.

Can you ship banners around the world?

Yes we ship worldwide. Please email us your requirements for a quote.

What material is your event banner?

Our event banner is manufactured from a 510gsm PVC laminated material. The material is more cost effective than our premium banners and is ideal for short to mid term usage. Still high quality, other suppliers online actually describe it as their ‘premium’ banner.

Can I have pole pockets?

Yes we can manufacture your banner with pole pockets if required.

Can I have a banner larger than 2.5m in any one dimension?

Yes we can manufacture a banner larger than 2.5m in one dimension only. One length has to be under 2.5m due to the material roll width. For larger banners you will need our PVC Premium Banner.

Is the print quality the same as your premium banners?

Yes the print quality is the same as our premium banners.

Can you send me a sample?

Yes, please check our Samples page.

Can I use the banners more than once, i.e. for future events if stored away?

Yes they can be used on more than one event providing they are stored correctly when not in use. Rolled up in a dry location in between events.  For examaple if you have an annual event there is no reason why you shouldn’t get a few years use if they are only used short periods at a time and don’t get damaged.

I want to order multiple banner of different sizes, How do I do this without incurring minimum order charge for each size banner?

There are 2 ways in which this can be done.

1. Add up the total sq metres of all you banners. For example if this comes to 50sqm then simply order x1 banner at 50m x 1m as this is 50 sqm and you will be charged the correct price. Then write a total breakdown in the additional instructions box of how many of each banner is required.

2. Email us with a breakdown of what you want to order along with the artwork and your billing & shipping address. One of our sales team will then email a quote back to you. on approval of this quote a pro forma invoice will be issued.

Do you offer the same finishing options as the Premium Banners?

We offer all the same standard finishing as the Premium PVC.  However there is no option for the optional reinforced extras as this is a low cost short term product. We recommend opting for Premium PVC if you require something stronger with reinforced hem or reinforced stitched pocket for longer term use.

Buying banners in confidence

You can buy from Banner World with confidence. Your job will go through several checks before manufacture. Firstly when your job comes in, we check all your uploaded files and cross-reference each file against your order.

Most of our banners and fabrics are manufactured at our large print factory in Europe. Our standard turnaround on items is 5-6 working days for delivery. Even though most of our ordering system has been automated, we still carry out several manual checks before processing your order. If at any point we have a question or a problem with your order you will be contacted before manufacturing.

Our processes

Please read the information below on how your order is processed. Each order goes through several checks before printing. Our file checking service is standard procedure on all orders. Checking your files means that you can place your order in confidence, knowing that we will check to make sure your order and corresponding artwork match and are correct. Anything we are not sure that we will contact you before proceeding.

What is Our Initial checking service?

When you place an online order, we will cross-reference your artwork against your order. At this point, we will check that the artwork sizes and file type match the order. We will make sure we have the correct number of artwork files for the job. At this stage, if anything appears to be incorrect, we will place the order on hold and contact you immediately.

How do we process your order?

Once we are happy with your order, we will then process it. We collate all the information for each job, including finishing and material type. The job information is then sent with your artwork to the pre-press department. Pre-press is where we will create and prepare your job for printing.

Your job is now batched together with other items on the same material. Each item has assigned to it a unique code. The code is used to track the order through our factory.

How do we finish your printed items?

Every job we produce is different to the next, whether it be size, material, shape or finishing. Your printed items will be finished as requested on your order. We automate as much of the finishing as possible, cutting down on labour costs and passing on the savings to you. The Prepress data is inputted into parts of our finishing equipment.
