Premium Fabric Banners

We use a high quality 210gsm polyester fabric as standard for our fabric banner printing service. This material is washable, crease-resistant and flame retardant. Printed using a dye-sublimation process, they will not run or fade.

Fabric Banner Specification

  • Tough 210gsm lightweight polyester fabric
  • Flame retardant to B1 specification
  • Ideal for indoor or outdoor use
  • Anti-glare and non-reflective

Any Design in Full Colour

We print from your artwork – this can be your logo or other design including photographic or illustrated backgrounds. Thousands of high resolution backdrop themes and ideas are available from image banks such as the Adobe Stock Library for very little cost.

If you are unable to produce print-ready artwork, don’t worry – just email us with a design brief and we will lay out your backdrop for you.

We print fabrics on rolls up to 3.2m wide to provide huge seamless panels. Larger banners on fabric are made from stitching panels together. Larger seamless banners can be printed on our UV machines at up to 5m wide on various materials.

Finishing Included

The banner is finished to your specification – included in the price – choose eyelets and/or pole pockets to suit. Many Fabric Banners will have eyelets at the top for hanging, with a pole pocket at the bottom through which a weight would be slid in (broom handles or metal pipe). Some are sized to fit across lighting rigs, with eyelets in each corner for easy fixing with bungee clips or cable ties. We also provide a Backdrop Stand.

Why Choose a Fabric Banner?

  • Lightweight and easily transportable, just roll them high-quality fold them up.
  • Washable by hand – just wipe clean. Machine washable at 30 degrees.
  • Flame-retardant (with Fire Certificate supplied) and non-reflective – so no glare from spotlights.
  • Ideal for indoor or outdoor use.

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)

Type

All Text on files must be created to outlines, curves or paths.  Please make sure text is converted before saving PDF files.

Colour Settings

All Files must 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

Each and every print machine, hand head device, desktop printer will interperature colours differently. 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 like on screen.  If you are unsure regarding colours then please ask or quote a pantone reference.   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.  We can match Pantones if required at an additional charge.   Please contact us prior to ordering as this is costed per job. We cannot guarantee an exact match on Pantone colours due to limitations of the CMYK print process but will try to achieve as close as physically possible.

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.

  • Feather Flags

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

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.

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

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’

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.

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.
