Fabric Banners

These are great for wall art, trade shows and more. Choose from either canvas or polyester.

Canvas banners are made from a lightweight poly/cotton matte canvas that rolls easily for shipping and storage but also looks great in a frame. Customizable sizes ranging anywhere from 12” x 12” to 48” x 120” and anything in between gives you the option to make your banner as small or large as you need it to be. With the option to add either pole pockets or grommets, there are a variety of ways to hang your banners.

Polyester banners are great for trade shows, soft signage and interior decorating.  Custom sizes range from 12” x 12” to 84” x 360”. They are made from 100% polyester and are wrinkle-free.

Indoor Banners

The material used for indoor quality banners has a smooth matte finish but is not waterproof or scuff resistant.  These come as either premium vinyl or blackout vinyl.

Premium vinyl banners are customizable in size anywhere from 12” x 12” to 59” x 120” (or 120” x 59” if you want it horizontal). These can only be printed 1-sided.

Blackout vinyl banners are heavier and more durable than the premium vinyl banners. If you’re only printing one side it can be any size from 12” x 12” to 69” x 240”.  If you need both sides printed, they come in 13 set sizes.
