What Is the Difference Between Indoor and Outdoor Banners?
Banners are extremely versatile. They’re an effective tool for advertising and marketing your business and its offerings. They also have a variety of other uses and purposes. For example, banners can be used to celebrate an important milestone or event, such as birthday parties, wedding ceremonies, retirement and baby showers. They’re perfect for getting the word out about upcoming church functions and are often used by non-profit organizations to advertise fundraisers. No matter what your specific need is, there are a variety of banner options to choose from. When ordering custom banners, it’s important to know what kind of banner you’ll need. In order to do that, you need to understand the differences between them. One of the biggest differences is whether or not they are designed for indoor or outdoor use, which depends largely on the type of material they’re made from.
Indoor banners are typically displayed inside buildings away from the elements. You typically see them hanging inside windows, in an entryway or on the ceiling. Indoor banners can be made from a variety of materials, including fabric, canvas and cloth, which are not designed to be exposed to the elements. Some indoor banners are manufactured from vinyl, which is perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. When advertising indoors, you don’t need to worry about your banners being damaged by weather, giving you a much wider selection of banners to choose from.
Outdoor banners, on the other hand, are designed specifically for outdoor use. You may have seen an outdoor banner used at a construction site or on the side of a building to advertise commercial real estate. Unlike indoor banners, which come in a variety of materials to choose from, outdoor banners are limited in their options. As we mentioned above, banners made out of fabric, cloth and canvas can become easily damaged by the elements. In order to be suitable for outside use, our outdoor banners are made from vinyl, a naturally weather-resistant material. Vinyl is water- and fade-resistant, and when cared for properly, will last for years. We also offer heavy-duty banners made from 18-ounce vinyl—our most durable for outdoor use—and mesh vinyl banners, that perform exceptionally well in windy environments.
