What is a vinyl banner?
Vinyl banners are a type of signage that are usually hung with bungees or ropes. These banners are lightweight, durable, flexible, and last for years. Our most popular products are vinyl banners, so we’ve learned several techniques to get the colors just right when we print vinyl. We put a lot of care into each banner print, and we’re proud to stand behind every vinyl banner that we sell. We’re proud to be G7 Certified Printers, which is an award for the highest quality printing and are reassessed each month to ensure our standards are up to the G7 name. Banner printing is what we do, and we take pride in doing it better than most everyone else out there.
What is vinyl?
Vinyl is short for Polyvinyl Chloride, which is a kind of plastic. There are two common types of vinyl: rigid and flexible. Rigid vinyl is hard, strong vinyl such as PVC pipes or even bank cards. Flexible vinyl is softer and used for imitation leather, song records, rubber replacements, and in our case signage. We use the softer, flexible type of vinyl for our vinyl banners because the material is durable and lasts. Our banner vinyl is closer to imitation leather than it is to song records, but it’s a special kind made specifically for signage. We use 13oz vinyl in our standard vinyl banners, and this means that one square yard of the vinyl weighs 13 ounces.
Are your banners printed in the USA?
Yes, we’re proud to say that all of our banners are printed in the United States. Our warehouse with our vinyl banner printers is attached to our main office, so we’re able to be close to our orders. Our warehouse filled with vinyl banner printers is attached to our main office. Because our designers are able to see the finished products so often, they know which colors look the best when printed and everything about pixelated print quality. Mix that with a couple decades of digital printing experience from our talented production team, and you can be assured that we'll deliver a high quality product every time.
How long does vinyl printing take?
Our banners are printed quickly after proofs are approved, but using a slow enough pass to retain high quality prints. We do a lot of our custom vinyl printing overnight so that it’s ready to ship out the following day. Our several high quality vinyl banner printers allow us to keep our turnaround times down while the banners printed look incredible.
What are vinyl banners used for?
Vinyl banners are most commonly used by businesses to highlight big promotions and sales, but they are also used by professionals to showcase their business or products at tradeshows or farmers markets. We make it easy to print banners online so that you can spend more time focusing on your next event.
What is denier? Will all vinyl banners have denier?
Vinyl can be made stronger by adding interwoven fibers on the inside of the material. This layer is called a scrim, and the denier is a measurement of weight referring to these fibers within the vinyl. For example, our heavy duty outdoor banners will have 1000x1000 denier, and this contributes to its weight and strength. We also offer vinyl that doesn’t have scrim, such as our high res indoor vinyl. By not having this scrim, the result is a smoother vinyl with richer print quality. The trade-off by not having scrim is that this material is only suited for indoor use because it isn’t nearly as durable. Cheap vinyl will often have low quality, thin scrim that is prone to rips and tearing.
Can a vinyl banner printer be used for vinyl sign printing?
These types of printing can both be done on the same banner printers, but the material will be different. Over our years of printing several different types of vinyl, we’ve perfected the different print speeds and passes required to get a perfect result every time. While we don’t rush our printers, we’re still able to get them printed and out the door faster than others in the industry. Our staff also checks each print during its finishing process to have even more quality control.
