PVC Trade Banners, Hardwearing and Durable

The UV print process allows us to make high-quality, durable PVC banners which will stand up to the elements. UV is a very effective way of manufacturing high-quality, vibrant banners at a very reasonable cost.

Larger, more exposed banners should be made from mesh banner material, ask us for advice.

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.

Eco-Friendly Banners

We are about to launch our industry-leading range of environmentally friendly banners, all of which are PVC-free and recyclable.

Event Banner

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.

Double-Sided Blockout Banner

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.

Mesh Banner

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.

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.

Which Banner Should I Buy? Premium or Event?

Banner Finishing

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.

Banner Sizes

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.

Wall Screws

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.

Bungee Ties

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

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. 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!

Artwork Guidelines Back to top


Before submitting artwork, please make sure you have read these guidelines carefully

We check all artworks prior to printing.  If we see any issues with your artwork we will notify you before printing. If we see an issue we will contact you and your order will be placed on hold until we have a response.  Please read information on this link for more information on our file checks and print processes Our processes and pre print file checking

We do try and spot errors however we cannot accept responsibility for any incorrect printing due to setup / artwork error.

Setting your artwork correctly

Banner World Ltd doesn't offer a design service.  Please ensure that your artwork is set correctly.  If you are unsure about creating artwork or have no understanding of setting artworks then please seek the assistance of a Graphic Designer.  If you don't have print ready artwork then DO NOT place the order.  If you would like to speak to us then please call us on 01253 897 840 or email sales@bannerworld.co.uk

File Formats

We only accept files in PDF, AI, EPS, JPEG, PSD or TIF Formats
(Tif / PSD files must be flattened)

Type & Text

All Text on files should ideally be converted to outlines, curves or paths.  Please make sure text is converted if possible in your software before saving PDF files.

Colour Settings

All Files should 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

Please supply files in a CMYK format. Files supplied to us in an RGB format will be automatically converted to CMYK and you will not be notified of this. Please be aware that Print machines, hand held devices and desktop printers will interpret and show colours differently to each other. We cannot be held responsible for colours printing incorrectly due to errors in supplied print files.
We print on a wide range of different machines and cannot guarantee a perfect match from one print method to another. 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 on screen.
If you are unsure regarding colours then please ask or quote a Pantone reference. Pantone colour matching is an extra charge of £30+vat per colour. Due to the nature and limitations of the CMYK printing system exact Pantone matches cannot be guaranteed. Please note that Pantone references used in print files will be converted to CMYK prior to printing which will not guarantee a colour match.
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.

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. Ask us for SVG format templates if you are using software such as Canva.

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’
