This premium quality 15oz block out vinyl which has a backing that ensures light will not show through from behind is the perfect for choice for hanging banners, store signage and any type of banner or signage used indoors.
The smooth surface allows a high level of print detail so it can be viewed up close. It’s heavier and more durable than our 13oz Outdoor Banner plus it's low curl so even if it's stored in a tube, it will stay smooth when rolled out. This material is typically used for banners, flags, signage, trade shows, or other events. Big and bold banners will captivate customers, boost visibility and create a visual punctuation mark within your space.
Our indoor banners are durable enough to last for several years under normal non-weather exposed circumstances. Clubcard offers optional hemming, grommets and pole pockets to help ensure your banner will go up easy and stay up longer.
Tips To Help Your Banner Last
- Loose roll your dry banner with the design inside- never fold your banner
- Clean with a soft, damp rag. No cleaners or scrub sponges.
- Keep away from solvents, paint thinner and alcohol.
How Do You Hang Indoor Banners?
Grommets or Banner Tabs! Clients have a choice between embedded brass grommets, or adhesive tabs to make hanging easier. Brass grommets are placed around the perimeter of the banner in 2 foot increments and are an additional cost. Banner Tabs are applied by you and are free.
How Many Grommets Do I Need?
For small banner, 1 grommet in each corner is probably enough. We also offer grommets every 2 feet, which is better suited to longer banners or banners that might be exposed to wind and other forces.
Not Intended for Large Areas of Ink Coverage
Depending on the color build, you may get some streakiness in large areas of solid coverage. We recommend a white background for best results.
Only 150DPI Required, so Go Big!
We recommend 150 DPI resolution images for large format printing, so you can go larger than you might expect. Also, if designed for viewing further away, lower resolution could work for your purposes. You can always request a 12" x 12" printed proof on the actual banner stock, so you can see the print quality prior to the job going into production.
