Alternative Banner Products
PVC Premium Banners are 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.
We are about to launch our industry-leading range of environmentally friendly banners, all of which are PVC-free and recyclable.
Our event banner is a cheaper version of our Premium Banner. Printed on a slightly lower quality material – ideal for one-off or short-term events! Sizes are limited to 2.5m in one dimension.
This Double-sided banner material, ideal for double-sided prints (think banners on lamp posts) or where an extremely tough material is required. 650gsm rather than 500gsm, this material also benefits from a block out liner which prevents light show-through.
Larger and more exposed banners will act as a giant sail when the wind hits. Non-mesh products can rip the material from its fixings or cause damage to the structure from which it’s attached. 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.

Crucial to the quality and longevity of any PVC banner are the methods used to finish it. Initially, traditional PVC banners would’ve had stitched hems. While we still offer to stitch banner materials (always on fabric materials), we more commonly use high-frequency welding on our PVC banners. Stitching gives a much stronger, more predictable and more aesthetically pleasing finish than stitching. Standard finishing including hems, eyelets and Pole Pockets is included free of charge.
We print PVC Banners on roll widths up to 5 metres wide. Banners that are larger than 5 metres both horizontally and vertically we would join with a weld.
PVC Vinyl Banners – 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 material like a drumskin, giving a robust sign effect. Check your tension frame specifications before ordering your banner. Some systems require just additional material around the outer. Other flex face systems require specific pole pockets, while others require a solid rubber edging welded in.
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 banner to flap and affect hems and eyelets.
Once you have your fixing points on the wall. Typically it is an idea to use 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
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 Chord 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 mobile, easy-to-use, outdoor banner display solutions. These are ideal for outdoor events or special forecourt promotions.
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 suitable, and please be wary of text, numbers and logos.
You should set 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 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. To make sure your banner can is nicely visible from a distance, 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! Consider placing a QR Code in the design in order to direct viewers to further information.
