Spread the Word Through Vinyl Banner Printing

Vinyl banner printing is a practical, affordable, and highly effective marketing tool. They are must-haves for trade shows, conventions, parades, political rallies, or church functions. The Outdoor Advertising Association of America says that up to 45% of customers stop on impulse driven by indoor or outdoor banners.

Created using high-quality vinyl materials, these banners can be used both indoors and outdoors. Display vinyl posters in permanent exhibits. Use them as decorations in smaller personal events like birthday parties and family reunions. You can also put them up as business signs in pop-up stores and food trucks.

Start With Stunning Visuals That Last

Choose from three high-grade vinyl material options for your vinyl banner printing. All available choices offer high levels of visibility and durability.

18 oz. matte vinyl

  • Distinctively smooth finish
  • The strongest vinyl banner material; puncture and mold-resistant
  • Ideal for displays viewed up close
  • Last outdoors for at least 5 years

Standard 13 oz. vinyl

  • Matte finish for great visibility even in bright light
  • Highly durable yet economical vinyl poster printing option
  • Great for both indoor and outdoor use
  • Can last 3 to 5 years outdoors

9 oz. mesh vinyl

  • Small holes allow wind and light to pass through for people to see out from behind it
  • Perfect for windy environments with its great tear resistance

Yes! Size Really Does Matter

We offer vinyl banner printing in a wide array of sizes. The bigger the banner, the bigger the message and the farther away people can see it. Here are the popular vinyl banner sizes:

  • 2’ x 6’ is small and portable. Ideally placed near new products inside a store or the edge of a table when used indoors.
  • 3’ x 6’ is the most common banner size. Whether used horizontally or vertically, this size combines visibility and portability.
  • 4’ x 6’ is a good size to use for visibility in fairs, tradeshows, and conventions.
  • 4’ x 8’ banners are perfect for places where there are no restrictions so you can display your banner loud and proud.
  • Custom sizes are also available. Choose this option to advertise major sales and events. Enormous vinyl banners can be displayed and draped outside buildings.

Read this complete guide on banner sizes to learn which specifications will best suit your needs.

Create a Story With Two Sides

Are you fine with the front or do you want your message seen from both sides? Vinyl banners can be printed on one or both sides of the material. Choose double-sided printing if you’ll be displaying the banner on a clear surface such as glass windows, or hanging it outdoors. This way people can see your message from any direction.

Mount ‘Em Where You Want ‘Em

Choose from three types of mounting options. Your choice will depend on how and where you’ll place your vinyl posters.

Grommet only

Nickel grommets (aka eyelets) are fastened around the edges or on the corners of your banner. This is the most popular and convenient way to hang vinyl banners. Add this if you need to use twist ties to attach your banner to a stand or to the wall.

Hem and Grommets

With hems, the banner edges are folded over and heat welded to reinforce sides and help your banner maintain its shape. Hemming prevents your vinyl poster material from fraying. Combined with the use of grommets, these are recommended for outdoor banners.

Pole Pockets

Banner edges are folded over and heat welded to form a pocket. These allow poles or rope to be inserted into your banner, carrying its weight. Pole pockets can reduce creases and give a solid tensioned appearance.

Top 5 Vinyl Banner Printing Design Tips

Want to maximize your vinyl banner’s impact? Here are the top five practical vinyl banner printing design tips that will help you achieve this goal:

  • Sizes matter. Vinyl banners are very cost-effective. Test out different sizes to see what works for you. Print on a smaller scale for enclosed spaces like counters, booths, and cubicles. Use larger dimensions for wider or more open spaces like huge walls or on the sides of buses, trucks, or trains.
  • Colors are key. Choose your banner’s colors wisely. Too much may drown out your message. Too little will make vinyl posters dull and unappealing. Contrast your colors for better visibility.
  • Graphics make it. Graphically appealing indoor banners or outdoor banners can create instant brand recall - 300% more as researches show. Add high-definition images of your target audience interacting with your brand. Make sure your logo is prominent.
  • The text should linger. Keep your message short and sweet for easy recall. Include action words like ‘go’, ‘get’, ‘find’, or ‘visit’ to move your audience towards a decision..
  • Location is critical. Everyone should see your vinyl banners. Place them in high-traffic areas that your target market frequents. Remove any obstructions that can block their view and ensure a clear line of sight from where it’s displayed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality and fast shipping My banner turned out great. It looks just like the proof. The quality control people were able to correct a few things to make it just perfect. It was sturdy when I hung it up between trees in our camp site. It held up well to the wind and rain. The grommets are strong. Our campers all signed it with a paint marker and the vinyl material worked great for that. Shipping was very fast. I received it a day before I thought it would arrive. I definitely recommend this company and will order from them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 18 oz vinyl banner Our new banner arrived quickly. It's beautiful, appears sturdy, and the colors are true. We ordered the 18 oz vinyl this time with hemming and are hopeful the the grommets will hold. Two previous banners of 13 oz vinyl, which were meant for short-term use, although also very attractive, had issues with grommets that tore and neither survived as long as expected.
