Long Lasting Outdoor Mesh Banners
Tough mesh banners with welded hems, eyelets and/or pole pockets to the highest standards in the industry. Superbly high quality printed using fade-resistant eco-solvent outdoor inks. When correctly fitted they will last years outdoors, in sun, wind and rain.
Strong, yet lets wind through
Mesh vinyl banner material is much lighter in weight than a traditional frontlit pvc banner. Winds of 30mph+ will damage normal pvc banners, hems and eyelets may be ripped out. Remember that a large non-mesh banner acts as a giant sail. Gusts of wind can easily destroy it as well as affect the structure it is fitted to. Larger non-mesh banners are fine as long as they are installed against a solid surface or within a fixed wall-mounted tension-frame system.
Although they cost the same initially as a standard PVC Banner, thanks to a lower wind resistance factor, Mesh Wind Banners last much longer outdoors in typical British weather conditions – making them cheaper in the long run.
Mesh banner material contains thousands of tiny holes to decrease wind resistance.
Why use a Mesh Banner?

- Reduces wind loading on fences, cafe barriers and scaffolding
- Acoustically transparent for use over concert speakers
- Hardwearing and scuff resistant
- Ideal as a scaffolding banner
- Ideal as a Building Wrap
- Weather resistant, fade resistant
Where to use Mesh Banner
- Fence covers and banners – Mesh reduces windloading on the fence structure
- Building Wraps – Mesh is lighter and less wind-resistant for use high up on scaffolding

Alternatives to Mesh Banner 330gsm
We offer a full banner printing service onto a range of mesh banner materials. Here are some alternatives for you to consider…
This fabric mesh banner is an even lighter material with bigger holes, resulting in more air flow being able to pass through the material. Typically used for higher, more exposed locations where wind loading will be an issue.
At only 115gsm, AirMesh Flag is our lightest mesh fabric. PVC-free. As a polyester-based fabric, it is also much more eco-friendly than PVC products. Acoustically transparent, this mesh fabric banner material is ideal as speaker scrim.
Ideal for smaller mesh banners required very quickly. Printed on our smaller machines and limited in size to 1.25m in one dimension.
Artwork Quality Checks
Our pre-press experts will quality check your artwork before sending to print. Sizing or image resolution issues will be referred back to you before we proceed.
Fitting Mesh Banners
A professional survey of your intended installation site is advisable for any outdoor banners over 25 square metres in size. A surveyor will calculate wind-loading on the structure and advise on the fixings necessary.
Larger Mesh Banners such as Building Wraps are normally installed in sections, straight onto scaffolding using Bungee Shock Cord. Your scaffolder should ensure that no pole ends are projecting that they may damage your banner.
Without scaffolding, large mesh banners can also be installed using a wire cable frame and a criss-cross effect of bungee rope. This method allows even more give when the wind hits the mesh banner and ensures a secure and long-lasting installation.
Finishing Mesh Banners
As standard we hem and eyelet our Mesh Banners all round with metal eyelets. Pockets to slide poles through can be provided at no extra cost, please specify the pole diameter in your order notes. Larger mesh banners can have reinforced hems at a slight additional cost.
Why choose Hems and Eyelets on a Mesh Banner?
Hem and eyelets are the most common finishing method on a mesh banner. We add eyelets every 500mm unless otherwise specified. We can add more eyelets if required. If you require more eyelets please enter this information into the ‘Additional Information’ box when ordering. The best ways to attach a mesh banner using eyelets include zip ties, bungee chord, large penny washers (large washers with a small hole) or tech bolts (self drilling cladding bolts).
As an option you can select Heavy Duty Hems and Eyelets, recommended if your mesh banner is over 20 square metres in size.
Applications that might require a hem and eyelets include:
- Walls (screw into the brick using wide-head screws and penny washers)
- Fences / railings, attached using zip ties
- Scaffolding (Zip ties or bungee cord)
- Metal cladding (tech bolts and penny washers)
Why do I need Pole Pockets?
We can manufacture your mesh PVC banner with pole pockets if required. A pole pocket allows the banner to slide over a pole or cable to aid fitting. We can manufacture pole pockets to any size you require. As well as a pole pocket we can add additional eyelets if required.
A pole pocket is often required on an internal installation. This is normally where a weighted bar/ dowel or sometimes broom handle or similar can be placed inside the bottom pocket to act as a weight to tension the banner. This creates a more rigid appearance and is less likely to move around.
Applications that might require a pole pocket include:
- Rigging or stage sets
- Where a cable or tensioned rope is required
- Lamp post banner brackets
- Projecting banner brackets
- To add tension by adding a weighted dowel or rod to the bottom pocket for hanging internally
We can if required supply your mesh banner with a reinforced hem. This heavy-duty webbing is welded to the outside edge of the banner giving extra strength and durability. Reinforced hems are usually required on larger banners or Mesh banners that are subject to high wind or very exposed locations.
Design Guide for Mesh Banners
We produce your PVC mesh banners from your print ready artwork. Please call for assistance if you require your banners to be designed or laid up.
Set your dimensions correctly
Please set your artwork to the correct dimensions of your final printed mesh banner. We do not require any bleed on the artwork for a printed mesh. If necessary, you can set your artwork to scale.
Set the correct CMYK colour settings
Please make sure that you set your colour settings to CMYK. Our mesh banner printers use a full colour solvent printing process which works using a CMYK Process. Files that are sent to use using an RGB setup will be changed automatically. Sometimes this can make the colours on your mesh printed banner seem weak & washed out. We will check for this before printing and contact you if required.
Positioning of eyelets on your Printed Mesh Banners
Please leave clear area of approx 50mm inside the outside edge of the banner. Background colour / images are fine, just no important text elements, small print or logos as these can be obscured by the eyelets. Around our mesh banners we will add hem and eyelets unless otherwise stated. It is not advised to have just eyelets (without the hem) as this can cause the material to rip.
We space our eyelets approx every 500mm apart unless otherwise stated. Eyelets will be evenly spaced, therefore spacing will vary slightly on different sizes of banners.
Pole Pockets on Mesh Banners
We can finish your mesh banners with pole pockets if required. Make sure when ordering / setting of your artwork that your artwork / finished file size is set to the finished overall size of the banner including the pole pockets. Standard scaffold tubes require a 150mm flat pocket size to fit comfortably with plenty of space as to not cause to much tension on the pocket seam. Please ensure that you leave a clear area at the top and the bottom of the banners to allow for the pockets. If your banner is 2m height please set to 2m height and then make sure that no text, logos and important info enters the top 150mm or bottom 150mm of the design area. Solid colour/ background images or patterns are fine just not text or vital information. Check here for more information on pole pockets and how to design for them.
Mesh Banner Design Principles
It is important to consider viewing distances. Always create your artwork to give the highest possible impact on a mesh banner. Contrasting colours will give your banner much more impact than washed out subtle colours.
Also, think about text sizes. Text is easier to read from a distance if it is larger. Use upper and lower fonts. Look at road signs as they are all in upper and lower type rather than all capitals. Subconsciously your eyes will read upper and lower (sentence case). Font type…. Normally clearer fonts work better than stripy, script or unreadable fonts. Look at most main brands, i.e. McDonalds, IKEA, B&Q, Dominos Pizza – all these companies use very readable fonts and typefaces.
Less is more, cramming every little bit of information onto your mesh banner probably isn’t a good idea. Remember to use clear areas of space and give your design space to breathe. The best mesh banner designs are always simple and straight to the point.
