Banner printing or large format printing is another form of poster printing and is used to make banners for clients. Large printers are used in this case to generate banners which can be used for promoting the client’s product or brand.

The mostly uncoated paper is used for banner printing however it is not recommended as it cannot hold so much ink and is also not very durable either. Other types of materials which can be used are as follows.

  • Paper with matte or Gloss finish
  • Vinyl with matte or Gloss finish
  • Canvas
  • Flag like material
  • Fabric  (It can be folded)

The above-mentioned materials are durable, long lasting, thick and fade resistant than paper hence their usage is preferred. There is no specific size allotment for banners. While they can start from 12 inches they can be taken up to 10 feet (height and width both) however the size of the banner will depend on the need of the client.

Methods of Printing

1)      Simplex

 Simplex printing is when the material is printed only on one side of the banner. This is the most common mode used and due to its ease of creation, many printing companies deal in simplex banner printing.

 2)      Duplex

Duplex print is when the banner has material printed on both sides. This is used in a situation when the company has a billboard open for viewing from both sides. However, it is an expensive proposition as it is very difficult to create.

Banner prints are made from different materials depending on the kind of usage that is intended. If internal viewing is what the client is aiming at then the material used is lighter and thinner making them easy to handle. However, if the usage is for outdoor purposes then expensive thicker materials are used, which can survive the vagaries of nature like rain, thunderstorms or sunlight directly etc. To increase banner life we can do lamination on the same banner.

Most banner printing companies give an assurance of wear and tear when the order is placed and it is advisable to get the banner printed on materials which suffice your needs the best.

  • Indoor Banners
