Vinyl banners can be printed single or double sided and have the option for full colour or text only use. These can be ideal for pop-up and roll-up banners. These banners are mostly for indoor usage but when combined with acrylic plastic sheeting and a frame can be used as an outdoor sign.
- No Curl Vinyl Banners – These vinyl banners are printed on 14-22 oz. vinyl sheet material that’s eight prevents the banner from curling or bending. These banners can have ringlet grommets installed, which make them perfect for hanging at large indoor events or at booths.
- Fabric Banners – Fabric banners offer the most textured and upscale design look. Though, these banners can be easily stained and faded, so should never be used in the outdoors. Banner soft is the most common fabric, though printing of a satin fabric can create a natural shine within the imagery.

Mesh banners are printed with tiny holes on 10 oz. scrim vinyl and offer durable and wind resistant banner.

- Silk Screening – Large silk screening machines can efficiently turn out simple and previously designed images, with rich double-sided colour. Flags are the heat treated to increase their durability and finally are trimmed and hemmed.
- Digital Printing – Digital printing offers a detailed imagery that makes it ideal for artistic flags. Though these flags can look noticeably lighter in on one side, so selecting a double-sided print can be effective. After being printed, flags are put through a range of tempering baths and are finally trimmed and hemmed.
- Dye Sublimation – Dye sublimation is commonly done with both polyester ad fabric flags. This process involves placing your image on a transfer sheet and then heat pressing the sheet onto your flag material at 375 degrees. These images are resistant to fade though require longer turnaround times and when used with fabric flags, can quickly damage flag stands due to the weight of the material.
