What is the best PVC Banner Material to use?

What is the best PVC Banner material to use? Vinyl PVC banners are not the only material available to sign makers. Today banner substrate manufacturers offer a wide array of different materials in numerous colors. New material options include mesh, cotton, polyester, canvas and synthetic papers.

With so much to choose from making the right choices can be daunting. In this blog, We provide some direction to help you pick the right materials for your Banners.

For most jobs, PVC banner material is still the best choice, being used in more than two-thirds of jobs.  For outdoor applications, PVC banner provide durability and easy to decorate using a wide range of media, such as ink, paint, and applied vinyl.

A very popular application for vinyl banner substrate is double-sided banners.  Instead of just sewing or otherwise finishing two separately printed banners, Essex Banners are now using dual-side printing blockout banners with their inkjet printers.

We use a high quality 440gsm thickness material, this is known across the industry as a thick, high quality material, that will make your PVC Banner last longer in the outdoor enviroment.

Mesh PVC Banner material?

What is a mesh banner? Mesh banners are banners with holes in them. Typically they are in the ratio of 70/30 or 60/40. Mesh banners are digitally printed and can be done in any size.

Mesh banners are more appropriate for large size banners that will go on a building or a fence. Since the banners will be viewed from a distance the holes in the material are not visible. Also, the holes allow the wind to pass through and therefore longer life for the banner. But mesh banners can only be single sided as compared to the PVC banner.
