Recyclable Eco Banner Products

Eco Banner Printing products are PVC free and 100% recyclable, providing an environmentally responsible alternative to traditional PVC Banners. With resources of raw material running at all-time lows and landfill sites getting larger all the time, being able to recycle Eco Friendly banners is more critical than ever.

Go Green With Recyclable Banners!

Most big organisations such as government entities, charities, educational establishments, councils and more prominent firms are making a move towards purchasing more environmentally friendly banner alternatives which can be easily recycled.

Eco-Friendly Banner Printing is becoming more and more popular!

Until now, there has not existed a sensible alternative to PVC Banners. Our Eco-Friendly Banners are now available. They are made from eco-friendly banner material such as Eco Mesh, 300gsm and 220gsm, conforming to Plastic Recycling Codes 1 and 5. Instead of using harmful and non-recyclable PVC, Eco Banners are made from either PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) and PP (Polypropylene).

Stop Sending Your Marketing To Landfill!

Standard PVC Banners and PVC Mesh Banners cannot be recycled and invariably end up in landfill sites. PVC plastics do not decompose and can last in the ground for hundreds of years, slowly releasing toxins. Incineration is even worse as PVC releases dangerous poisons into the air, which is harmful to us, other animals and the environment.

Eco Friendly Banners Print Superbly!

Our Eco-Friendly Banners print superbly at high resolution. We print all of our Eco Mesh Banner using eco-solvent inks. Our standard (non-mesh) Eco Banner 300 and Eco Banner 220 use Latex inks in the printing process. Latex inks are environmentally friendly and are made up of mostly water and contain no harmful air pollutants (HAPs). Latex inks contain no Nickel, are non-flammable so will not combust.

Designing an Eco Banner

We advise creating your eco banner artwork by including the relevant plastic recycling code. Then, when your banner has served its purpose, whoever disposes of it will know that it is recyclable. Your banners can be either dropped off at your local recycling plant or can be put in your special plastics bin which most UK councils provide.

Flame Retardant

Frequently Asked Questions

How Are Eco Banners Recycled?

The materials used to make our Eco Banners fall under Codes 1 or 5 of the International Plastics Recycling Code. These banners can be quickly and efficiently recycled and reused for other products rather than ending up in landfill sites.

Do Eco Friendly banners cost more?

Yes, they do for the time being. As Eco Banners become more popular, we hope that material and production costs will come down.

How Long Will Eco Banner Last?

Our tests have shown that Environmentally friendly banners, when correctly fitted, will last as long as traditional PVC banners – around two years+ if correctly installed.

Is The Print Quality As Good On Eco Banners?

Print quality is as good as if not better than regular PVC Banners. For our Eco Banner 220 and Eco Banner 300 products, we use Latex print technology. Latex printing is more eco-friendly, has a higher print resolution and a more extensive colour gamut then solvent ink printing.

Can Eco Banners Be Finished In The Same Way?

Yes, they can. You can have Eco-Friendly Banners finished with hems and eyelets or pole pockets, just like PVC Banners.
