Double Sided Hanging Banner Blockout 650gsm
Supreme, top-of-the-range hanging banner material ideal for use on double-sided hanging banners, but can also be used to create super-strong premium single-sided hanging banners. These banners are tougher and last longer, well worth paying the extra for if you need an added lifespan. Our blockout material is used for the production of double-sided banners. Between two layers of white banner there is a black separator which prevents the hanging banner from being transparent. Quality and Strength When quality and strength is paramount, this material is super strong and top of the range so is ideal for use on single sided hanging banners too. This material is often used for scaffold banners, projecting-wall banners and lamp post banners. Double Sided Blockout Hanging Banner Specifications Super-strong 650gsm PVC with blockout liner Flame Retardant to B1 specification, certificate available Ideal indoors or outdoors Single or double-sided printing (double-sided included in the price) Fade proof and scratch resistant Low Prices Guaranteed Price includes UV printing both sides, with each side using different artwork if required. Finishing is also included, consisting of hems and eyelets and/or pole pockets. Check our Guide to Pole Pockets on Banners. Hanging 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 banner you have ordered. Allow for Eyelets and/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 fine, just be wary of text, numbers and logos. Your artwork should be set 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 Hanging Banners are first and foremost an advertising medium. Information displayed should be clear to read – consider how far away your target audience will be. If your banner is intended to be viewed 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!
PVC Mesh Hanging Banners
Mesh Hanging Banner - Lightweight and Windproof Mesh Banner is lighter in weight than a traditional frontlit banner. Normal PVC outdoor banners are not recommended in winds of 30mph+ as hems and eyelets can 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 fitted 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 much lower wind resistance factor, Mesh Banners last much longer outdoors in typical British weather conditions - making them cheaper in the long run. Why use a Mesh Hanging Banner? Lighter and easier to fit Allows wind to pass through Reduces wind loading on fences, cafe barriers and scaffolding Acoustically transparent for use over concert speakers Hardwearing and scuff resistant Mesh Banner Specifications M1/B1 Flame Retardant product with certificate available High quality reinforced 330gsm mesh material Nickel plated eyelets with 12mm diameter hole Ideal indoors or outdoors Scratch and fade resistant Any Design, Any Size Our UV and Solvent printing machines print high resolution mesh panels at up to 5 metres in width. Larger banners are welded together allowing us to create windproof banners at any size. Design your artwork any way you like, just submit it to us as a CMYK PDF for best results. You can include background images, photographs, logos and text. Check our Artwork Guide for full instructions. Fitting Mesh Hanging Banners A professional survey of your intended installation site is advisable for any 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 Hanging Banners As standard we hem and eyelet our Mesh Banners all round with webbing and metal eyelets. Pockets to slide poles through can be provided at no extra cost, please specify the pole diameter in your order notes. Check our Guide to Pole Pockets on Banners. As an option you can select Heavy Duty Hems and Eyelets, recommended if your mesh banner is over 10 square metres in size. Material Specification Our Mesh Banner material is waterproof and flame retardant to B1 standard thanks to a special coating, making it ideal for use indoors or outdoors. Strengthening within the mesh makes it tear and rip resistant to normal pressures too. Free Delivery on Orders over £250 We deliver Mesh Hanging Banners for free if your order totals over £250 excluding VAT. Design Guide for Mesh Banners 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. Position of eyelets on your Printed Mesh Hanging Banners Please leave clear area approx 50mm inside the outside 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 so eyelet spacing might vary slightly on different sizes of banners. Pole Pockets on Mesh Hanging Banners We can finish your mesh banners with pole pockets if required. Please 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 are 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. To explain - if your banner is 2m height please set to 2m height and then make sure that no text, logos and its 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. Design Principles for Mesh Hanging Banners Because mesh banners are used for advertising its always important to think of viewing distances. Always create your artwork to give the highest possible impact. Contrasting colours will give your banner much more clout than washed out subtle colours. Also think about text sizes. The larger the text the more it will be viewed from a distance. 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 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 adverts are always simple and straight to the point. Remember your average viewer needs to read your message in 3 seconds or less.

Banner Finishing Crucial to the quality and longevity of any hanging banner are the methods used to finish it. Traditionally, banners were always stitched. Whilst we still offer stitching (always on fabric materials), we more commonly use high-frequency welding on our PVC banners. This gives a much stronger, more predictable and more aesthetically pleasing finish than stitching. Standard finishing including hems, eyelets and/or Pole Pockets is included free of charge. Banner Sizes We print PVC Premium Hanging Banners on roll widths up to 5 metres wide. Banners larger than 5 metres both horizontally and vertically will be joined with a weld. Premium PVC Hanging Banners - Fitting Methods Horizontal Poles With sleeve pockets top and bottom and rods or poles slid through, your hanging banner can be suspended with wire or rope for indoor use, or on special brackets for outdoor use. Wall Screws Typically long length screws can be used, with large penny washers over the eyelets to protect the banner. It is vital to achieve the proper tension on banners fitted by this method - too loose and the wind will cause the high-quality to flap and affect hems and eyelets. Bungee Ties Once fixing points have been installed on the wall - typically 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 wire frame can be run though eye bolts approximately 300mm outside the banner. Once the wire is tensioned, the banner can be fitted using a zig-zag of bungee cord. This 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 portable, easy-to-use, outdoor banner display solutions. These are ideal for outdoor events or special forecourt promotions.
