Alternative Banner Products
Event Banners are of course ideal as a cheap banner solution, producing high-quality print at a low price. Here are some alternatives for you to consider...
Premium PVC Banner
The main difference here is the quality of the banner material. It is stronger and will last longer, printed on roll widths up to 5 metres.
Double-Sided Blockout Banner
This banner material is designed for double-sided prints (think banners on lamp posts) or where an extremely tough banner is required. 650gsm rather than 500gsm, this material also benefits from a blockout liner which prevents light show-through.
Larger and more exposed banners will act as a giant sail when the wind hits. This can rip the banner from its fixings or cause damage to the structure it is fitted to. Mesh PVC and Fabric materials benefit from thousands of tiny holes which allow some wind to pass through, thus reducing wind loading.
We offer a wide range of polyester and cotton based fabrics suitable for internal and external banners. Fabrics benefit 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.Design Guide for Event Banners
Set your dimensions correctly
Please set your artwork to the correct dimensions of your final printed event banner. We do not require any bleed on the artwork for an event banner. 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 UV printers use a full colour printing process which works using CMYK inks. Files that are sent to use using an RGB setup will be changed automatically. Sometimes this can make the colours on your printed banner seem weak & washed out. We will check for this before printing and contact you if required.
Position of eyelets on your Printed Event 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.Event Banner Design Principles
Because event 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 easily 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 stripey 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 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.Event Banner Fitting Methods
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 banner to flap and affect hems and eyelets.
Plastic cable ties are ideal for fixing Event Banners to fencing or railings.
Once fixing points have been identified on the fence, wall or structure - 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
For secure wall fixing 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.
