Indoor Vs. Outdoor Banners – Fabric Banner Printing File/Resolution

Question:  Is there any difference between outdoor and indoor banners?

Generally, a banner that can be used indoors can also be used out of doors. However, there are some differences in construction that should be noted if you know that your banner is going to be used out of doors.
