Drive traffic to you doors with big, bold and beautiful full color outdoor banners printed on 13oz scrim weatherproof vinyl made to look great while lasting several years outside in normal weather conditions.
Waterproof and scuff-resistant, reinforced 13oz scrim vinyl is typically used for billboards, building wraps, banners, event flags and trade show signage.
To strengthen and reinforce your outdoor banners, we suggest the optional hemming, grommets or pole pockets. Your banners will ship to you within 5-6 business days, please be sure to select a shipping method that will ensure your order arrives on time!
Tips To Help Your Banner Last
- Loose roll your dry banner with the design inside- never fold your banner
- Clean with a soft, damp rag. No cleaners or scrub sponges.
- Keep away from solvents, paint thinner and alcohol.
How Do You Hang Outdoor Banners?
Grommets or Banner Tabs! Clients have a choice between embedded brass grommets, or adhesive tabs to make hanging easier. Brass grommets are placed around the perimeter of the banner in 2 foot increments and are an additional cost. Banner tabs are applied by you and are free.
How Many Grommets Do I Need?
If a small banner, 1 grommet in each corner is probably enough. We also offer grommets every 2 feet, which is better to longer banners or banners that might be exposed to wind and other forces.
Not Intended for Large Areas of Ink Coverage
Depending on the color build, you may get some streakiness in large areas of solid coverage. We recommend a white background for best results.
Only 150DPI Is Required, so Go Big!
We recommend 150 DPI resolution images for large format printing, so you can go larger than you might expect. Also, if designed for viewing further away, lower resolution could work for your purposes. You can always request a 12" x 12" printed proof on the actual banner stock, so you can see the print quality prior to the job going into production.
