Samba fabric is a versatile material which can be used for tension frame systems or for umbrellas, canopies and tents. A special coating allows raindrops to flow down the surface without penetrating. Ideal for indoor or outdoor use.
Dye Sublimation Printed
Samba is printed using the dye-sublimation print method for eye-popping, deep, rich and vibrant colour reproduction. This is ideal for simple logos, text and for full colour photographs.
You can have Samba prints finished to your specifications, choosing from hems, eyelets and pole pockets. Additional specialist finishes are available upon request.

The ideal DPI is 125dpi if possible. At 125dpi this can make very large graphics huge in memory size, so on larger graphics i.e. 5m x 2.5m you can go down as low as 50dpi. As a rule the larger the graphic the greater the viewing distance hence the lower the dpi can be.
Small / medium sized graphics 125 PPI (DPI)
Large sized graphics 50-100PPI (DPI)
FONTS / TYPE
Please make sure that all text is created to outlines / curves before uploading. Even on PDF files make sure you create outlines before saving.
No Thanks, No bleed is required on your artwork.
Please leave a clear area of 50mm to allow for eyelets. (Please ensure that all text / logos / critical information is more than 50mm from the edge of your artwork) Background colours and images are fine going into the clear areas.
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 to run into these areas. Background colours or hackgrtoudn images are fine, just no readable text or logos. So if you are ordering a 1m wide x2m height banner with pole pockets top and bottom, then please keep the bottom 150mm free and the top 150mm free from text and logos. This will make the overall visual area 1m wide x 1.7m height.
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.
We can match pantones if required at an additional charge (please contact us before proceeding) as this is costed per job. We cannot guarantee an exact match on colours due to limitations of the CMYK print process but will try to achieve as close as physically possible.
