As compared to traditionally printed vinyl banners, fabric banners are an up-scale in appearance and offer superior color depth and gamut. Using dye sublimation printing technology, aqueous inks are permanently embedded deep into the material fibers making them scratch and scuff resistant. Our banner fabrics are polyester based and are tightly weaved making them incredible tear resistant. While ideally suited for permanent interior applications, fabric banners are water repellent and can be used outdoors. However, aqueous inks are not UV rated and will begin to fade after several weeks of continued sun exposure.
Copy Sides: Fabric banners are printed to one side of the material only. For double sided banners, we create two prints and sew them back to back separated by an opaque liner.
Our most common material, Scrim vinyl is well suited for interior and exterior displays. It has a very smooth surface and offers the highest print quality, with moderate strength. We stock matte finish material and highly recommend it in order to minimize glare. A glossed finish is also available as custom order. For tied installations receiving winds from front & back, the material is rated for sizes up to 60 square foot. For properly fastened wall mount installations size is unlimited.
Note: This material is somewhat prone to curling along the edges when printed with heavy ink coverage. For exhibit quality applications always use hemmed banners.
