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,

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?

Question: How Many Different Types of Banners Are There?

Quite a few if you break some of the major categories into individual pieces. Also, some banners that were popular in past years have all but faded from the scene due to changes in technology and printing.

The main categories in existence today are PVC, or vinyl banners, and fabric banners. Both of these categories are fairly expansive, and I will not go into all the nuances of each material, but I will give a good overview of the more popular choices.

Billboard and Mesh Banners-DPI Resolution for Banner Printing

Vinyl Mesh and Billboard Banners, plus the Recommended Fabric Banner Printing Image Resolution

Question: What are Mesh Vinyl Banners?

Mesh vinyl banners are PVC (polyvinyl chloride) or “vinyl” banners whose reinforced nylon fibers are separated and coated in a mesh pattern in order to reduce wind load on the banners.

Mesh vinyl banners allow about 10 to 15% air slippage, about two to three times what wind pockets will afford. And wind pockets are just plain unattractive, as I’ve mentioned in the past.

My opinion is that the best option is to use a solid vinyl banner material,
