Lowest Cost PVC Banner

Our 510gsm event banner is probably the lowest cost full colour printed banner of this quality in the UK.  A fantastic entry level product and ideal for cheap pvc advertising banners. Our event banner material is generally what your average sign or print shop will produce.  A laminated banner material, 510 gsm weight as opposed to the more generally used 450gsm sign shop grade. Printed in exactly the same way as our Premium Trade 500gsm banner, the only difference is the banner material itself and the rock bottom prices!

High Quality Printing

510gsm 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. Larger banners are printed on premium 500gsm banner material at widths up to 5m (more when panels are bonded together).

Alternative Banner Products

Event Banners are of course ideal as a cheap banner solution, producing 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

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

Mesh Banner

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.

Fabric Banners

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.

Design Guide for Event Banners

Set your dimensions correctly

Please set your artwork to the correct dimensions 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 colour / images are fine, just no important text elements, small print or logos as these can be obscured by the eyelets.  Around our mesh banners we will add hem and eyelets unless otherwise stated.  It is not advised to have just eyelets (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 used for advertising its always important to think of viewing distances.  Always 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 more easily 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…. Normally clearer fonts work better than stripey unreadable fonts.  Look at most main brands, i.e. McDonalds, 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 clear areas of 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 achieve 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

Once fixing points have been identified on the fence, wall or structure – typically 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

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. This gives the effect of a trampoline on its side, tensions the banner and allows some ‘give’ for high winds.

PDF, Jpeg, PSD, eps (CS 6 or earlier) Ai, (CS 6 or earlier)

We only accept files converted to CMYK.

We accept files at
Actual size or
1:2 scale (50% actual size)
1:5 scale (20% actual Size)
1:10 scale (10% actual size)
1:20 scale (5% actual size)

The ideal DPI is 125dpi if possible. At 125dpi this can make very large graphics huge in memory size, so on larger graphics i.e. 5m x 2.5m you can go down as low as 50dpi. As a rule the larger the graphic the greater the viewing distance hence the lower the dpi can be.

Small / medium sized graphics 125 PPI (DPI) Large sized graphics 50-100PPI (DPI)

Please make sure that all text is created to outlines / curves before uploading. Even on PDF files make sure you create outlines before saving.

No Thanks, No bleed is required on your artwork.

Please leave a clear area of 50mm to allow for eyelets. (Please ensure that all text / logos / critical information is more than 50mm from the edge of your artwork) Background colours and images are fine going into the clear areas.

When ordering make sure you select the finished overall size of your banner including the pockets. So if you select a 1m wide x 2m height, then we will manufacture the banner to a total the height of 2m including the pockets.
(clear areas on pole pockets)
Please make sure that you leave a clear area for your pockets. The term ‘clear area’ means no items of text or logos to run into these areas. Background colours or hackgrtoudn images are fine, just no readable text or logos. So if you are ordering a 1m wide x2m height banner with pole pockets top and bottom, then please keep the bottom 150mm free and the top 150mm free from text and logos. This will make the overall visual area 1m wide x 1.7m height.
Double sided banners
We have special software which flips certain parts of your banners so as to create a seamless pocket on the opposite side. When ordering a double sided banner please just follow the above steps, as the file(s) will need to be set up in the same way. If you require a different image on each side of your double sided banner not a problem, just upload x2 files stating that you require a different image on each side.

We can match pantones if required at an additional charge (please contact us before proceeding) as this is costed per job. We cannot guarantee an exact match on colours due to limitations of the CMYK print process but will try to achieve as close as physically possible.

FAQ Back to top

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 £12 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.
