many banner backdrops when hung from the appropriate hardware, or can be used as a sign hanging on the front of your display table. Vinyl banners are especially appropriate for trade show applications because they are lightweight and can be easily shipped or transported. They can also be use in other products such as Banner Stands and Retractable Jiffy Rolls.The printing is bright and colorful, and very durable, because these are essentially outdoor banners. Trade show banners are printed on a very smooth, soft vinyl material with solvent based inks. When buying trade show banners, always insist on true solvent-based inks because these are much, much more scratch resistant, and UV-resistant; and are completely water-resistant as well. Banners printed with dye-based or pigment-based inks will fade very quickly in bright light. Banner Signs (Outdoor Banners)Banner Signs are often used in the place of more rigid signage. Because they are outdoor banners, they are printed on very rugged vinyl, and then seamed around all four sides for added strength and wind resistance. Grommets are applied where necessary for easy hanging. Banner signs can be tied down, or screwed down, and will last for years without tearing or fading. You can also mount your banner sign without grommets by asking for “pole pockets” instead. This way they can be mounted on pole at top and bottom. The pole can be part of a mounting bracket arrangement, or, if it is made of wood or plastic, can be screwed directly to a wooden surface (such as a fence).Event Banners, Birthday Banners, Anniversary Banners, Convention Banners, Conference BannersEvery special event can use an Event Banners. These normally function as focal points or as backdrops. A typical event banner application is at a conference or convention where there is a stage or podium.
A banner can be hung as a backdrop in order to emphasize the convention theme or display a corporate logo. Event banner backdrops can be any size or shape, varying from your typical horizontal long and narrow shape to a more square backdrop shape. Large backdrop banners can be hung from cords attached to the ceiling either to a curtain rod style pole (using the pole pocket technique) or to a number of grommets in the top of the banner.Event banners can be either Indoor or Outdoor Banners. The cost is virtually the same, since only the material is different. In the case of Birthday Banners that are used indoors, the vinyl material is often softer, and less tear-resistant. When Birthday Banners or Church Banners are meant to be hung outside (like a Sign Banner), then it can be printed on a more tear-resistant material, and will include seams and grommets where requested. If you need your banner to last for more than one event it is best to print it with durable outdoor inks to make it scratch resistant.All vinyl banners from America-Banners.com are printed with full color outdoor resistant printing using solvent inks.
