Be the first to review “Heavy Duty Banner Printing”

More Information »

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.

Event Banner

Event banner is a cheaper version of our Premium Banner. Produced in a slightly lower quality material – ideal for one-off or short-term events! Sizes are limited to 2.5m in one dimension.

PVC Premium Banner

Our standard premium banner material, ideal for mid to long-term banners. Printed full colour one side.

Mesh Banner

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.

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 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

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. 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!

Frequently Asked Questions »

How will I know if my artwork is suitable?

If we find any quality or sizing problems we will contact you before production. We will try to spot any mistakes. It is though your responsibility to upload correct files.

Can I upload a numerous files if I’m ordering more than x1 banner at the same size?

Yes. Please upload all the files and let us know the breakdown required.

Will you ship my parcels in plain guise?

Yes. All items will be sent in plain wrap.

How much do you charge to ship my banners?

If your order is over £250 we will ship to any Uk mainland address free of charge (excluding highlands). Orders under this amount will be charged at £15 to a UK mainland address (excluding highlands)

Is this product printed double sided as standard?

This product is single sided printed, for double sided printed banners please see our Double Sided PVC Banner product

What are the benefits of this over your Premium 500gsm PVC?

This is very strong PVC for ultra durability.  At 650gsm it is thicker and heavier than the 500gsm product.  Another good benefit is the light block layer in between the two white PVC outer layers. This prevents any light show through from passing through.  Good for when hanging in a window or in front of a light source.

How heavy will my banner be?

At 650gsm (grams per square metre) this is quite a heavy sturdy banner. As an example a banner at 5m x 2m (10 sqm) would weigh 6.5kg

Do you have a fire certificate for this product?

Yes this product its fire rated to B1 standards.  The fire certificate can be downloaded here.

Buying banners in confidence

You can buy from Banner World with confidence. Your job will go through several checks before manufacture. Firstly when your job comes in, we check all your uploaded files and cross-reference each file against your order. At this point, if we see that artwork is incorrect or if there is a file missing we will contact you to request new artwork. Most of our banners and fabrics are manufactured at our large print factory in Europe. Our standard turnaround on items is 5-6 working days for delivery. Even though most of our ordering system has been automated, we still carry out several manual checks before processing your order. If at any point we have a question or a problem with your order you will be contacted before manufacturing.

Our processes

Please read the information below on how your order is processed. Each order goes through several checks before printing. Our file checking service is standard procedure on all orders. Checking your files means that you can place your order in confidence, knowing that we will check to make sure your order and corresponding artwork match and are correct. Anything we are not sure that we will contact you before proceeding.

What is Our Initial checking service?

When you place an online order, we will cross-reference your artwork against your order. At this point, we will check that the artwork sizes and file type match the order. We will make sure we have the correct number of artwork files for the job. At this stage, if anything appears to be incorrect, we will place the order on hold and contact you immediately.

How do we process your order?

Once we are happy with your order, we will then process it. We collate all the information for each job, including finishing and material type. The job information is then sent with your artwork to the pre-press department. Pre-press is where we will create and prepare your job for printing.

Our Pre Press and second checking service.

Pre-press refers to the stage before printing. Here your artwork is converted into the correct format for our machines and finishing processes. At this point, if something is spotted which isn’t correct or if there is a problem we will again contact you.

How do we print and track your order through the factory?

Your job is now batched together with other items on the same material. Each item has assigned to it a unique code. The code is used to track the order through our factory. The information is used to check the material, quantity and finishing information on the item. The order then goes through our print presses.

How do we finish your printed items?

Every job we produce is different to the next, whether it be size, material, shape or finishing. Your printed items will be finished as requested on your order. We automate as much of the finishing as possible, cutting down on labour costs and passing on the savings to you. The Prepress data is inputted into parts of our finishing equipment. Your graphics are now finished to your custom requirements. Each printed product is set up differently for each type of finishing process. A banner that has hem and eyelets will be manufactured and produced in a different way to a flag with a pole pocket.

How are your items packed?

We have now manufactured your items. The finishing pieces now move onto the packing department. At the packing stage, we collate your order. Items get checked off against the order using the order code system. The printed goods get wrapped and packed, ready for despatch.

How do you ship my goods?

Now your item has been packed it is ready to be shipped. From placing your order, your goods have taken approx 24-48 hours to get to this stage. We have a logistics team which arrange the shipping through UPS. Our standard delivery (£15 or free over £250) will now take an additional three days to be delivered to an address on UK mainland and most of mainland Europe. Our standard shipping will travel via road and sea to reach the UK. We do offer a faster 1-day shipping method which is our 4-day turnaround service. The fast turnaround service is expensive on low-value bulky orders and is more cost-effective on higher volume jobs. Items to the US and other worldwide destinations will take longer to be delivered. For items going to Ireland, the Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Scottish highlands etc. please add an extra day onto delivery times
