Pricing per Linear Foot for Vinyl Banners?

Vinyl PVC Banner Printing Costs per Linear Foot Versus Cost per Square Foot?

Not as Simple as You Might Think

How much can I expect to pay for a vinyl banner per linear foot? I am asked this question quite often, but of course, there are never simple answers because we have to ask you some questions before we can answer your question.

It’s kind of like asking how much I should pay for a car. Obviously this question will create a whirlwind of questions such as “What is your budget?” Or maybe,

Gluing a One-sided Banner to a Sheet of Plywood?

Is Gluing a Single Sided PVC Vinyl Banner to a Sheet of Plywood a Good Idea?

It Depends.

A customer called me the other day and asked what type of glue he could use to glue a one-sided vinyl banner to a sheet of plywood. While this sounds like a simple question, I like to review questions like this from several angles.

The first question I would ask is, “How long do you intend this to stay on the plywood?” I ask this question because there are adhesives that might work for a short period of time,

Weather Concerns Regarding Two-sided Vinyl Banners

Vinyl PVC Banners: Whether the Weather be Calm or Whether the Weather be Stormy, Will My Vinyl Banner Weather the Weather?

I am often asked whether the weather will affect a one or two-sided vinyl PVC banner. The answer is yes, but probably not the way you might be thinking.

The reason I’m writing this article is because I was asked today if you can leave your vinyl banner outside during a thunderstorm? The inks used for banners today, whether screen printed or digitally printed, or in the case of fabric dye sub printed banners, dye sublimation printed,

Where To Buy a Double-sided/Two-sided Vinyl Banner Wholesale

Wholesale Two-sided Printed PVC Vinyl Banners: Where is the Best Place to Purchase Them?

I am sometimes asked, ”Where is the best place to purchase a two-sided vinyl banner?” Of course, I am biased on the answer to this question, but I will attempt to put that aside to answer this question fairly and equitably.

First, any company can claim to sell “wholesale” banners or signs or decals or displays, but where the rubber hits the road, if you’re purchasing a product to re-sell to your client, is pricing, timing, and quality of the finished product.

Hemming Your Vinyl Banners – What is the Best Method?

Vinyl Banner Hemming – Should You Glue, Tape, Sew, or Heat Weld?

Question: How do you hem a printed vinyl banner if you don’t have a sewing machine to stitch the edges?

Answer: This is a good question, as many shops don’t have an industrial sewing machine to hem banners. However, glue is not the only way to hem banners, although it does not require machinery to hem your PVC banners with glue.

The way to use glue is first, of course, to get the right glue for vinyl banners. The way we did it when we glued hems for a short time was to lay the banner flat on a table,

How Much Does a PVC Vinyl Banner Cost?

Why I Can’t Give You the Average Cost of a Vinyl Banner –

There are Lots of Factors in Pricing PVC Banners

I am often asked, “What is an average cost of a custom PVC vinyl banner? If, for instance, the question comes from “Joe Home Builder,” I will often reply to such queries, somewhat tongue in cheek, with a question like “How much would it cost to build me a house?”

Of course, Joe Home Builder would reply with questions such as how many square feet would the house have, how many rooms,

How to Remove a Wrinkle from a Vinyl Banner –

Or, Better Alternatives to PVC Banners if You Need to Move the Banner from Location to Location

“I have a vinyl banner that one of my employees folded,” says Ron. “Is there any way to remove wrinkles from a PVC vinyl banner?”

The answer to this is usually yes. It will depend somewhat on the weight and quality of the vinyl banner material as well, as to how wrinkles may be removed.

The more “plasticizers” that are used in the manufacturing process of a vinyl banner,

PVC Vinyl Banners and Fabric Banners

Various Banner Types – Vinyl, Cloth Fabric, and Polypro Banners, Plus Other Varieties

I am often asked if there are more than one variety of PVC vinyl banners. If the meaning of this questions is in regards to weights or sizes or whether or not a banner can be printed on both sides or just one side, the answer is “yes.”

Conversely, if you are speaking of multiple types of vinyl, then the answer, for all intents and purposes, is “no.”

However, the nylon threading that the fiber is wrapped around may vary in size and closeness together,

Will a Vinyl PVC Banner Float in or on Water?

Floating Vinyl Banners on the Ocean, Lake, or River? Why Would You Even do That?

I have a client asking if a vinyl banner will float on water, presumably in a lake, river or ocean.

First, I would have to ask why would you want to put a printed vinyl banner in a lake in the first place? Are you advertising to aircraft that are flying overhead? Or boaters going by on the lake or river or ocean? Or are you afraid that it may fly off your large boat (maybe it’s for sale and you have a banner attached to the side of your craft).
