    Lovely banners, saved us so much from last year’s.

  2. Jennifer Douglas (verified owner)

    Really impressed. We originally sent artwork including some sponsor logos that were not quite good enough. Banner World advised before printing and helped us get it right for our 40 banners.

  3. Rotary Club (verified owner)

    Thanks so much for these banners for our charity event, we will be using you again!

  4. HJ Services (verified owner)

High Quality Banner, Low Cost

A high quality event banner printed onto a high quality 510gsm frontlight material.  Ideal for events, festivals and exhibitions our 510gsm event banners are printed using durable UV print technology.   For our premium trade 500gsm banners please click here.

For example, 4 event banners at 3m x 1m will cost only £94.00 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 a great 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. The material looks the same, but will not last as long outdoors – hence it is ideal for shorter-term use (up to a few months). Why spend more on premium material if your banners are only to be used once for a short period of time?

Our Price Guarantee

Finishing is free so you can calculate cost below with peace of mind knowing that the price you see is the price you pay.

Finishing is Included in the Price

Standard finishing including hems, eyelets and/or Pole Pockets is included free of charge.

PVC printed Event trade banner is weather and flame resistant, and can be finished to your specific requirements be it hem and eyelets, pole pockets or customised finishing.  Ideal for short-to-medium term outside use our event and festival banners are printed at up to 2.5m in ONE dimension. For example, your banner could be 2.5m wide x any height, or 2.5m high x any width.

Event Banner Specification

  • High quality 510gsm laminated PVC
  • Nickel plated silver eyelets with 12mm diameter hole
  • Ideal indoors or outdoors
  • Scratch and fade resistant

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.

Artwork Guidelines Back to top


Before submitting artwork, please make sure you have read these guidelines carefully as we cannot accept responsibility for any incorrect printing due to setup / artwork error.

File Formats

We only accept files in PDF, AI, EPS, JPEG, PSD or TIF Formats
(Tif / PSD files must be flattened)

Using Canva

Canva is a popular free online design platform which you can use to create your own artwork for flags, banners and backdrops. Set your artboard to scale in proportion and export your design as a 'PDF for Print'.

Type & Text

All Text on files should ideally be converted to outlines, curves or paths.  Please make sure text is converted if possible in your software before saving PDF files.

Colour Settings

All Files should be set to CMYK format.  Please make sure there are no spot colours or pantones in your artwork as this can output unexpected results. As our service is a CMYK 4 colour process we cannot guarantee exact matches to Pantone, Ral or Spot colours.

Colour Matching

Please supply files in a CMYK format. Files supplied to us in an RGB format will be automatically converted to CMYK and you will not be notified of this. Please be aware that Print machines, hand held devices and desktop printers will interpret and show colours differently to each other. We cannot be held responsible for colours printing incorrectly due to errors in supplied print files.
We print on a wide range of different machines and cannot guarantee a perfect match from one print method to another. Due to print tolerances and the nature of our business we cannot guarantee an exact match to something that is shown on a computer screen.  Most creams, greys and CMYK printed golds can print differently to how they look on screen.
If you are unsure regarding colours then please ask or quote a Pantone reference. Pantone colour matching is an extra charge of £30+vat per colour. Due to the nature and limitations of the CMYK printing system exact Pantone matches cannot be guaranteed. Please note that Pantone references used in print files will be converted to CMYK prior to printing which will not guarantee a colour match.
For larger jobs it is advisable to order a minimum order sample of the colour before ordering, but doing this will delay the order for another 5-6 working days.

Artwork Templates

For certain items an artwork template is supplied on the product page.  These templates are only for items which are set to a specified size. Ie feather flags / deckchairs etc.  This will need downloading and your artwork setting on the template prior to ordering.  If using the template please assign a separate layer for the artwork and save as a layered pdf, ai or eps file.  Please embed images and create outlines on the type before saving. Ask us for SVG format templates if you are using software such as Canva.

List of products which use templates

  • Feather Flags
  • Deckchairs
  • Directors Chairs
  • Heras Fence Covers
  • Fabric Backdrop Stands

Size & Scale

The orientation of the print file must match the orientation on the order

  • 1:2 scale (50% actual size)
  • 1:5 scale (20% actual Size)
  • 1:10 scale (10% actual size)

Overprints

Overprints MUST NOT be used in files.

File Names

Print file names much be as short and descriptive as possible.

Colour Profiles

Print files MUST NOT contain ICC colour profiles

Use of Black

Correct Black Settings gives the print a deeper colour as sometimes using just black the image can look grainy and 'washed out’. If you have files with large amounts of black in the file, use the following guidelines.

UV Printing i.e. PVC/Mesh Banners

We recommend using a rich black which is made up of:
C50 / M50 / Y 50/ K100.

Dye-Sub Fabrics

We recommend using a rich black which is made up of:
C10 / M10 / Y10 / K100.

Images

All images must be embedded into the document.

Resolution (DPI)

Please make sure that you save your file to the DPI Guidelines below. (In case of scaled files i.e.: if your file is set at 1:10 (10%) scale then the DPI must be x10 times higher to compensate)

Vinyls, Static cling, Posters, Small stickers, Window decals

  • Upto A4 Size    300dpi
  • Over A3 Size    150dpi

Banners, Backdrops, Foamex, Dibond, Correx, Wallpaper, Contravision

  • Over 50 m sq 30dpi

Pole Pockets

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.  So if you have 150mm flat pockets top and bottom, please don’t let any text or logos to run into these areas. Please note that on a 1500mm flat pocket you will also need to leave an additional 25mm extra for the weld (so 175mm in total. Background colours or images are fine, just no readable text or logos.

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.
For the full comprehensive guide on Pole Pockets click this link please refer to our Pole Pocket Guide here.

Bleed & Crop Marks

Banners, Fabrics and Backdrops

Set your artwork without bleed or crop marks. On banners please remember to leave clear area all around of 4cm so not to conflict with the position of the eyelets.

Decals, Vinyl Prints, Rigid Boards

Please supply all files with 5mm bleed all round.  Please don’t save the files with crop marks.

Cut to shape

Vinyl / static cling

In case of an artwork being cut to shape, we require a 5mm bleed plus a contour cut supplied in a separate layer. The cut line should be a contrasting stroke colour to the artwork and clearly named in an individual layer ‘CutContour’

Banners

When showing eyelet positions and/or wind slits or cutter lines on banners.  Please supply the artwork file and a separate cutter file.  Please ensure that both files are set to the same artboard size and are set to the same scale.
Please supply a separate ai, eps, or pdf file with the cutter or eyelets marks.

Please note

Banner World can not be held responsible for any spelling errors / typos / incorrect telephone numbers, or improper setup of files.  If we believe that a file is incorrect before production we will contact you and request a new file.  We may refuse to accept files not suitably prepared for print.  Any additional operations aimed at correcting files to the above guidelines and all changes made by Banner World upon the request of the customer shall be treated as an additional service and may incur an extra surcharge.

Frequently Asked Questions 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.
