Banner printing is a popular way for businesses, groups and people to promote their products or services. It is a highly effective tool to reach a large and targeted audience at events, in-store, or online. Whether you want to advertise your business, celebrate a milestone, collect donations, or plan an unforgettable party, unique custom banners are the perfect solution.
The process typically starts by creating a digital file that reflects the desired banner size. Ideally, this should be done in vector format so that it can be edited and printed using a variety of software applications. Vector formats are resolution-independent, making them ideal for printing banners. Common examples include EPS (vector graphic) files, PDF files, and AI files (platform-dependent Adobe Illustrator).
Once the file is ready to print, it is loaded into large-format printer. It may also undergo additional finishing processes such as hemming and grommet installation. Hemming reinforces the edges of the banner to prevent fraying, and grommets allow for easy hanging. Banners can be printed in a variety of materials, including vinyl, plastic and nylon; some are even biodegradable.
In addition to these types of banners, fabric banners can also be produced. These are usually printed on a screen, which provides richer colors than the digital banner printing process. This type of banner is typically used for indoor or outdoor displays and can last for up to three to five years.
