When searching for vinyl banners you may notice that there are many types of banners available. The two most common types of vinyl banners you will come across are the standard vinyl banners and the mesh vinyl banners. At first glance, they look the same but then you soon realize that they have some very different characteristics about them; each more suitable in certain conditions.
About the Standard Vinyl Banner
A standard banner is a material that is used both indoors and outdoors. They have a large variety of uses and can be hung from a ceiling, attached to a table or even placed on a banner stand. A great advantage that vinyl banners have is that they are very cost effective to produce and at the same time create a large visual impact which makes them an excellent marketing tool. They have a few options including single or double sided printing as well as customization levels such as full color graphics, size, number of grommet holes, choices of pre-made banners and more.
It is very durable, repels liquids and can withstand a large number of environmental conditions. The only time the standard banner falls short is when it is windy outside. Although this type of banner can be produced with wind slits it makes the banner, as a whole, look unsightly and creates a loss in its impact.
About the Mesh Vinyl Banner
Like the standard banner, the mesh banner is also made out of vinyl. This means it is also possesses the same quality such as durability. This also makes it available to use indoors and outdoors. The main difference is seen in the way the vinyl is constructed throughout the banner. The mesh vinyl banner has tiny holes located equally throughout it (like a mesh screen) and is ideal for windy situations.
People often choose a mesh l banner for larger outdoor events and concerts, when a larger banner is required as well as when used as building banners. When exposed to wind, the wind simply goes through the little holes in the material which means the banner is not disturb and remains securely intact. On the other hand, a standard banner might often come loose, wave around in the wind and close up where the message the banner is displaying would be unreadable.
Mesh vinyl banners are also great for indoor displays as well. A common way to display them indoors is to place the banners on windows. This is sometimes a better alternative to posters due to the fact that the holes in the mesh material let light through. It also allows for customers to see in and out of the location. For this reason, among others, mesh vinyl banners can be printed on both sides and in full color.
As you can see, each banner is designed for certain situations. Whether you choose a standard or mesh banner, they will both achieve the goal of attracting people’s attention.
