Heavy duty banner printing is our most premium banner product with unparalleled material strength. We use our most robust and most durable banner PVC material when printing heavy-duty banners. Heavy-Duty Banners are ideal for applications where cheaper, lighter banners are likely to fail. Think construction sites and places where you need a banner to last a long time outside. Designed to last and twice as strong as standard Premium PVC Banners, our Heavy-Duty Banners are class-leading in durability in comparison to others.
We use our heavy-duty banner material for the production of double-sided banners. Between two layers of the white PVC fabric, there is a black separator which prevents the scrim from being transparent. The light block layer prevents and light or show-through being visible on the other side.
Why choose heavy duty banner printing?
If you require a banner which is the strongest banner type on the market, then our super-strong heavy-duty banners are the only choice. There is no other banner product that we offer which has higher tensile strength levels than our 650gsm material.
Durable banners have quality and strength
When quality and strength is essential, our heavy-duty banners are durable, and top of the range.
We use this material for scaffold banners, double-sided cafe barrier banners, projecting-wall banners and lamp post banners.

Larger and more exposed banners will act as a giant sail when the wind hits. A much better solution in the wind is our Mesh banner. Solid banners can tear in gusts of wind. Mesh PVC and Fabric materials benefit from thousands of tiny holes which allow some wind to pass through, thus reducing wind loading.
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 excellent, be wary of text, numbers and logos.
Please set artwork should 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 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.
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. Is your banner being viewed at a distance? Then add some contrast and make sure that the typefaces are legible. If you try to cram too much information onto a banner, then the text may end up too small to read!
