Tips For Picking The Right Material For Your Banners

If you are looking to create a great banner, there are a few different options in terms of the material. You can get a vinyl, or fabric banner. It all depends on your display needs, both materials are great, and whatever you choose we are here to assist with your tradeshow needs.


A Look at Fabric Banners

Fabric is one of our lighter materials we have to offer, and it creases less so you have fewer wrinkles when the piece is assembled. This material is great for indoors. There are times when fabric banners make the best option for color consistency.  

When it comes to banners at trade shows, fabric is one of the best options to go with. Fabric is not the only material that can be used for retractable banners; another common option is a vinyl material. For a clean look and color consistency between similar materials we would recommend fabric material versus a vinyl banner. It also gives your graphics a softer look.

Another plus for fabric banners is that the colors look more rich and vibrant than they do on banners made from other kinds of materials. The sub dye process that is used on these banners helps the colors to be more vibrant. To clean the fabric banners you will need to follow our care process which you can find on our website.


A Look at Vinyl Banners

There are times when vinyl is the way to go. Depending on if you plan on using the displays indoors or outdoors there are different types of vinyl we can use. Vinyl is a great option for outdoor use, because they are extremely durable and vibrant in color. They can be easily cleaned and great for extended outdoor use as long as they are properly maintained.

The main reason experts say that vinyl banners are better than fabric displays is because it will provide a longer lasting display with a rich and detailed print. Vinyl is versatile in many ways and will be useable in both indoor and outdoor depending on where you see fit. If most of your existing pieces are done with vinyl we would recommend continuing with that material to help keep consistency.


Things to Keep in Mind  

Don’t forget to keep in mind where you are setting up the display. How big is the space you are placing the banner or booth in?  Are you looking for a single or double sided display? How will you be using this display? Also, what is your budget?
