Banner Care

Some banners are inexpensive items purchased for a 1 time special event, meant to be discarded after a week or two.

In other instances, they represent a significant investment that will be used over and over again. In that case, it pays to know how to care for your investment. Banners last longer when properly stored. That means rolled up, either around a cardboard core and/or rolled and put into a canvas storage case. Folding can sometimes cause creases that over time will show up when the banner is hung. Canvas storage bags are available and help keep the ropes and banner from slipping apart when storing and handling.

If the banner has been laminated with a protective clear coat, then the laminate side should always be rolled to the outside to prevent tunneling.

Consider your storage facility. It needn't be elaborate, but it shouldn't be subject to extreme temperature variations either.

Banners

Our large format HP 9000s solvent printer can produce banners at approximately 200 ft²/hr. and up to 54” wide laminated and 58” wide unlaminated. The HP inks used for our digitally printed banners are guaranteed color fast, even unlaminated, for up to 4 years. We generally recommend that our customers get their banners laminated.

It’s a small extra investment to protect against abrasion and stains. However, it is not always necessary, especially for very short term or one time use banners.  Digital printing is ideal for short run banner work.

Banners can be finished in a variety of ways including having ropes sewn in, laminating, hemming and grommeting. For larger runs it becomes more economical to screen print banners.

The cross over point between digital and screen printing depends on the size of the banners, the nature ofGoodstock%20banner the art and the quantities ordered.
