Trade Show Banner Printing Options
Many of the banners shown on these pages are offered with two options for banner substrates; either a super smooth banner vinyl, or a special wrinkle-resistant fabric. For example, all of the overhead hanging banners and signs, as well as most of the outdoor banners, and most of the special 3D shaped banners are only printed with fabric graphics. Almost all of the retractable and non-retractable banners are available using either printed fabric banners or banners printed with vinyl.
Banner printing on vinyl is done with an inkjet printer, typically a 4 color process. Vinyl banner printing is less expensive than fabric printing due to the much lower cost of the equipment involved, as well as the shorter processing time involved. The trade-off is that banners printed with vinyl have a tendency to curl slightly on the outside edge of the banner, especially if the background and edges of the banner are a solid print (instead of white). Also, PMS color matching is not available on inkjet printers – we can get close, but can’t guarantee a perfect match.
Banner printing for the fabric banners normally uses a dye sublimation printing process, which involves several stages and more expensive printing presses. The advantages are that, while more expensive, fabric banners never curl, and PMS color matching is available.
