Promote your business with custom printed vinyl banners
Vinyl personalized banners are relatively inexpensive signage. They are easy to hang, requiring only a couple of nails or zap straps. Banners roll up for convenient storage, so they can be reused.
Create a custom banner for a promotion or to advertise seasonal business hours, and hang it for great visibility only when your promotion is on.
Personalized banners are great to create brand awareness, at trade shows, for birthday parties, or to mark a special event.
The rest of the time it rolls up and takes up very little storage space, ready for the next time.
Banners are perfect temporary signs
Rigid coroplast or PVC signs are great for long term messaging. They are easy to take down and put up, but not easy to store.
Large stickers are also great for permanent or temporary messaging, but they are destroyed when removed and not great for reuse.
Banners are the ideal choice for indoor or outdoor use. They are quick and easy to hang, water resistant, and easy to store away.
Mount vinyl banners where you want them
A pocket can be created on the top (and bottom) of a vinyl banner for you to slip a pole or rope through to support the entire length of the banner, keeping it hanging straight.
Grommets can be added to the corners or along the edges of the custom vinyl printed banner to make hanging the banner with screws, nails, or zip ties easy.
Custom vinyl banner printing product specifications
We use scratch resistant eco-solvent inks for custom vinyl banner printing. The vinyl banners should last for 3 to 5 years or more of continuous outdoor exposure.
Vinyl banner material
At Laser Sharp, we offer you two exceptional choices for outdoor hanging banners, a 13 oz vinyl and a finer, heavier 16 oz.
13 oz scrim
Standard fare for outdoor banners, this material has threads, called scrim, woven through the vinyl to strengthen it. Scrim is ideal for outdoor advertising as it withstands tough weather conditions. It is appropriate for both indoor and outdoor use.
16 oz no curl
This material is smoother than scrim and better suited for indoor use. It is resistant to curling at the edges, so hangs nicely in place.
This material is fine for short term outdoor use, but is generally intended for indoor use where viewing is more close up.
Custom banner size
Your custom vinyl banner can be printed in any size, to the fraction of an inch. The maximum width for custom sizes is 50″, and the length is open.
Prices for banner printing are based on square foot, so if you order more than one banner, increasing the square foot of your order, your price will be discounted.
Hanging your banner: grommets or pole pockets
As an option, nickel grommets are fastened to your banner. The grommet is a metal ring that prevents your zip tie or rope from tearing the banner.
Alternatively, you can request that a pocket be added to the top of the banner. The pocket accommodates a pole or rope that can be secured on each end to give a rigid support across the banner. A similar pocket can be added at the bottom if desired.
A pocket is ideal if you are printing a banner to be carried in a parade or suspending it on a specially designed banner stand.
Adding a hem to the edge of the printed vinyl banner
To strengthen the banner edges and to prevent slight fraying that may occur on scrim vinyl, a hem can be added.
We use a double sided adhesive tape to weld a .75″ strip along each edge before grommets are inserted.
Image requirements for custom vinyl banners
For vinyl banners, it is most important that your artwork or images are the correct size and do not need to be enlarged to print on the vinyl material.
Significant enlargement of raster images results in pixilation and poor print quality and will display as fuzzy or boxy.
Turnaround time to print vinyl banners
While priority rush service is available for vinyl banners, it is wise to allow time for the inks to set before picking up your banner.
Production time depends on the size and number of vinyl banners ordered. Priority orders are moved to the front of the line, but still take time.
