Heavyweight and Durable Banners

Heavyweight and durable our 450gsm express banners are printed using high-quality latex print technology. This print process allows us to quickly make high-quality, durable banners which will stand up to the elements.

Banner Finishing

Alternative Banner Products

Express Banners are of course, ideal as an inexpensive advertising medium, producing a high-quality print that lasts and at a low price. Here are some alternatives for you to consider.

Event Banner

Our event banner is printing using the same method as our premium banner. We use lower grade PVC material, which is ideal for short term applications. Sizes are limited to 2.5m in one dimension.

Double-Sided Blockout Banner

For double-sided banner printing, we use our 650 block-out banner material. This material also benefits from a blackout liner which prevents light show-through.

Mesh Banner

Larger and more exposed banners will act as a giant sail when the wind hits. Standard PVC banners can rip from its eyelets. The wind will cause damage to the banner and sometimes the structure it is fitted. 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.

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 ok, be wary of text, numbers and logos.

Set your 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. If your banner viewing distance is far away, 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!

PVC Banner 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 banner like a drumskin, giving a robust sign effect.

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 flag to flap and affect hems and eyelets.

Bungee Ties

Install your fixing points first. Once you have installed the fixing points, you can then use 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 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 compact, easy-to-use, outdoor banner display solutions. These are ideal for outdoor events or special forecourt promotions.
