Here's a definite checklist of everything you need to know before purchasing vinyl banners.
When choosing vinyl banners as a print medium, there are four factors to consider:
- The duplication quality of the print.
- Ink factors that determine the brilliancy and lifetime of a banner.
- The strength of the vinyl material used to create the banner.
- The finishing work applied for added strength and installation.
For personal or business banners, most people review the pricing first and foremost in the hopes of getting the most affordable banner around. Since printers are fully aware of this, they tend to intentionally cut corners on the construction of a banner to make it as cheap as possible so it can be purchased quickly. What this means for the consumer is that they're missing out on a high-quality banner by ignoring the four core factors of vinyl displays. At Half Price Banners, we provide the most competitive, economical prices in the industry without ever having to sacrifice quality. We also have the integrity to never cut corners or deceive consumers with pricing that does not reflect our four components to a properly constructed banner.
The Printing Process
We utilize the latest industrial CMYK printing technology in order to provide you with exceptional quality resolution and clarity on every single banner we print. The attention to detail on the image quality delivers a lifelike photographic resolution that helps us achieve even the most vibrant, bright colors that are true to the eye for a precise lifelike tone that most printers cannot accomplish without increasing their cost.
Eco-Friendly UV Solvent Inks
One might think UV solvent inks are named as such because they're fade-resistant under UV light from the sun. While they are fade-resistant, UV inks mean much more. These types of inks are run through an industrial printer with a UV light which helps the inks dry faster. As a result, the print resolution and clarity of the message you create will be depicted with eye-catching clarity.
Durability of Vinyl Material as a Print Medium
The most common method of defining the strength of the vinyl used in your banner is through the vinyl's weight. With limited information, it's easy to assume a 15 oz. banner is stronger than a 13 oz. banner. However, this is not the case. All it signifies is that the 15 oz. One is heavier than the 13 oz. one
If the denier of the banner is less on a 15 oz. banner than the denier on a 13 oz, this means the 15 oz. is simply more apt to tear, where the lighter 13 oz. banner is lighter and stronger. For our vinyl banner prints, we use 1000 x 1000 denier on 13 oz. vinyl material for the standard banners we sell making them lighter to handle especially in large sizes but stronger than most of the heavier ounce banners on the market.
From the printing process, UV inks printed on durable light weight vinyl to heat welded hems securing installation grommets, our reflected price includes everything needed
While other printers cut corners to save costs, we understand the importance a finished product you can feel proud of. That's why we put in the extra work to print the perfect vinyl banner for you. The first part of finishing the banner involves hemming the edge of the banner, which adds strength at the ends of your display. Our hems are all heat welded, which is a special process that heats the vinyl fold to a temperature that fuses the folds into one thicker edge. With this process, you won't have to worry about unraveling threads or folds coming apart. All you get are durable banner edges to faster grommets. (Grommets are the circular rivets that help support the holes in your banner for hanging purposes.)
