Digital Printing of Vinyl Banners

Polyvinyl Banners

This is another online guide to full color custom vinyl banner printing…

Printed displays like vinyl banners stay relevant despite the emergence of digital advertising with fancy screens or reader boards. Companies, businesses, or retail environments still exhibit these stationary ads on their own shops, establishments, or trade show exhibits.

PVC Vinyl Banners – Heavy Duty Outside Marketing

Wide Format Vinyl Wall Banners

PVC vinyl banners are tough and they’re designed to stand up to the elements. If you plan to display a banner in an outdoor location, the PVC option is the only choice that makes sense.

Sources for high or low quantities of indoor and outdoor vinyl banners…

Where is the best place to purchase vinyl outdoor or indoor banners? Of course, I will always tell you, “Right here,” but to be fair to your question, I will give you your available options, as well as the pros and cons of each option.

First off, all PVC banners are usable indoors or out-of-doors. Because they are so popular as an inexpensive, comparatively, advertising medium, there simply has never been a reason to make the interior displays, and because the volume of materials that are used is so great,

Pricing per Linear Foot for Vinyl Banners?

Vinyl Banner Sheet

Pricing per linear foot versus cost per square foot in PVC vinyl banner printing? Not as simple as you 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, “How much can you afford to pay monthly for the vehicle including insurance and licensing?” Or,

Gluing one-sided vinyl banner

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,

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,

wholesale double-sided vinyl banners

Where is the best place to purchase wholesale two-sided printed PVC Vinyl Banners?

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.

Cost is a major factor in wholesale pricing.

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?

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.

Gluing the Banner
