Your Guide to Wholesale Banners

At Printastic, we know that a large portion of our customer base is small and medium-sized businesses looking for single banners to help their business grow. However, there is a whole additional side of the banner landscape that we service that doesn’t get quite as much coverage: wholesale banners. 

Wholesale banners are exactly what they sound like: banners that are ordered by companies at a large volume and sold for a discounted rate for wholesale use – and it’s one of our specialties.

Our wholesale banner program couldn’t be simpler. We offer organizations, businesses, franchises, and manufacturers the opportunity to order large volumes of high-quality vinyl banner printing at a price they won’t find at your typical one-off banner printers. That’s what makes our wholesale banners unique.

The many benefits of Wholesale Banner purchasing from Printastic

Do you think that wholesale banners might be right for you? Here’s our guide to what makes wholesale banners an ideal choice for large volume orders.


Pricing and Payments 

The first question anyone asks when it comes to businesses purchases is “what’s the price?” Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered right upfront.

Our wholesale banners are priced at just $1.50 per square foot, which makes them extremely economical for even the biggest orders. This unique pricing structure makes banners of any size more affordable in large quantities.

We also offer special payment options for our wholesale customers as well. We currently accept a full complement of credit and debit cards including Visa, Mastercard, and American Express, and we also accept online payments via PayPal. We can also work directly with your organization to arrange payment by company check.

Print Quality

As with every product we offer at Printastic, our wholesale banners are printed in the highest possible quality on the best possible material.

For our wholesale banners, we utilize the latest latex print technologies to craft single-piece banners up to 10’x50’. These large printing systems allow us not only to print in extremely high photographic quality but also turn around orders much faster than any other banner printer on the market today. 

Shipping Options to Meet Your Priorities 

Whether you want your entire order of wholesale banners shipped directly to you, or you have agents or locations across the U.S. whom you’d like to ship directly to, our shipping department makes it easy and fast to get your wholesale banners into the hands of exactly the right people as quickly as possible.

Free Super Saver Shipping

If all of your banners are heading to the same place (e.g. your corporate headquarters), our wholesale banners will be shipped free thanks to our Super Saver Shipping Program – making your order as efficient and affordable as possible.

Blind Drop Shipping

If you have multiple franchise locations or varying corporate destinations for your order, our shipping department will help by offering blind drop shipping services for just a small shipping and handling fee. All you have to do is provide us with the addresses and quantities, and we’ll drop ship your banners directly in a plain brown box with a return shipping address of your choice on the label and no paperwork inside. Our blind drop shipping services are perfect for trade shows, pop-up stores, festivals, or anywhere else you might want to ship your banners. 

Added Benefit: We know that most companies who have relationships with major carriers like UPS or FedEx often receive benefits for using their accounts, which is why we’re happy to use your account number at no additional cost. 

Production and Proofing

Just like our customers who purchase custom-printed vinyl banners for commercial purposes, we want our wholesale customers to be completely satisfied with everything they order. That’s why, exclusively for our wholesale customers, we offer a free by-request printed proof of your design before we send your entire order to print. This will ensure your banners will look exactly the way you want them to before they leave the door of our production facility.

If you’re interested in your free proof, be sure to let your our customer service team know when placing your order.

Whether you place an order that reaches our minimum of 50 banners for wholesale customers or you need a number of banners that puts you well into the triple digits – don’t worry: you won’t have to wait long to get your stunning banners in-hand.

Because we do all of our own printing in-house on state-of-the-art machines, we can beat the turnaround time and price of just about every other printer on the market today. Plus, our customer service team will give you a realistic and accurate shipping timeline when you place your order – so you know exactly what to expect and when to expect it. This way, you can plan accordingly and feel confident you’ll receive your order on time.

Account Manager

We want to make sure each aspect of the wholesale banner printing process – from your initial design setup to shipping and delivery – is as easy as possible, which is why we have a dedicated wholesale account manager, Steve K., on our team to ensure each aspect of the process goes as smoothly as possible. 

Steve is available Monday-Friday to answer your questions and is always ready to help any of our customers get their questions answered in a timely fashion.

Double-Sided Banners – A Guide

Listen, we know we may be a bit biased when we say we love banners – what can we say; we’re passionate about what we do! – but it’s not without good reason. Banners are exceptionally useful, very affordable, and are a tried-and-true method of advertising businesses, events, and sales. And though we sell many different kinds of banners suited for many different purposes, one of our favorites is also one of our most popular: the double-sided banner.

Double-sided banners are one of our most innovative, durable, and popular products, and this is our guide to help you learn everything you need to know about this great marketing tool.

What exactly is a double-sided banner?

Before we get into all of the specifics of what make double-sided banners great, let’s first establish the basics of exactly what they are. A double-sided banner is a single banner that is printed back-to-back. This serves two purposes: you can either share the same message on both sides for maximum exposure when its placed in a location viewable from both sides or you can utilize the back and front real estate of the banner for two different messages. Because of this option, double-sided banners really are one of the most versatile products in the banner world.

Are all double-sided banners created equal?

In short: absolutely not. A double-sided banner’s look and longevity are directly related to the quality of the material used for printing and the printing process used to create the banner’s artwork. We have heard too many horror stories to count from customers who’ve purchased double-sided banners from other printers before coming to us – and we are delighted to say there is virtually no comparison to our double-sided banner printing process and product.

Many banner printers who sell double-sided banners online are still stuck in the past using an older printing process that neither looks good nor lasts long. Their method for double-sided printing is actually printing two different banners and sticking them together with glue to create a “double-sided banner.” You can imagine that a product this flimsy would be incredibly vulnerable to wear and weather even when hung in non-stressful environments.

For all of us at Printastic, we know that double-sided banner printing can be done better which is exactly why we’ve perfected the double-sided banner printing process. We start with one layer of unique, durable 18-ounce block-out heavy-duty 1000×1000 denier vinyl. Then we run that vinyl through our special printing process so both sides of the material are printed to look great.

This unique 18-ounce block-out vinyl helps create spectacular double-sided banners in several ways. First is its durability. 18-ounce vinyl is one of the heaviest vinyl options we offer, which also translates directly to its exceptional life and longevity. 18-ounce vinyl will last longer and look better than many other banner vinyls on the market. It’s heavy and reusable, and will not surrender to trying environmental factors that other banners may.

Secondly, the 18-ounce block-out vinyl is perfect for double-sided banners because it literally blocks out the other side of the banner from showing through – even when hung in direct sunlight. This helps keep the viewing side of your banner crisp and free of any kind of distractions that might show through on incorrectly constructed double-sided banner. This block-out technology is exactly what allows Printastic to be one of the few printers who are able to print a double-sided banner on the same sheet of high-quality vinyl instead of the old process of attaching two lesser-quality vinyl banners back-to-back.

Last, but certainly not least, because we are able to print on two sides of the same 18-ounce vinyl banner, your final product will remain lightweight and manageable – giving you the flexibility you need with the functionality that will best suit you banner investment.

Do double-sided banners require hanging hardware?

Just like the way your banner looks and where you choose to use it are totally up to you, the same is true with what kind of hanging hardware (if any) you want to add to your banner. At Printastic, we don’t believe in additional charges for standard banner hardware, which is why our #2 Nickel-plated metal grommets come standard on our double-sided banners installed at every two feet across the top and bottom.

However, if you have a specific use in mind or simply a preference for how grommets are attached to your banner, we can help! We can place grommets on just the four corners, just across the top and bottom of your banner, or simply leave the grommets off altogether. The choice is yours!

Do double-sided banners require hemming?

Hemming is a process we use often on smaller banners to reinforce a banner’s strength and structural integrity. In order to prevent fraying and increase a banner’s lifespan, about one inch of extra vinyl around each edge of the banner is heat welded to the back – creating a strong connection that virtually cannot be torn apart. Because of the strength of our 18-ounce block-out vinyl, hemming is not needed for durability or longevity on double-sided banners. Hemming would also obstruct any artwork on one of the banner’s sides, so it’s neither needed nor practical for our double-sided banners.

What about artwork? Do I need to design my own?

A double-sided banner is truly a blank canvass and can be utilized to communicate any kind of promotional or marketing message you’d like. But if you don’t have the tools to create those designs in-house, don’t worry: we’ve got you covered. Our easy-to-use online design tool is full of all kinds of fantastic templates to suit your needs and is yours to use without any additional charge. This tool will help give your banner a professional look without having to spend the time or money hiring a professional designer.

Alternatively, if you do have in-house design services or already have some designs created, you can easily upload your own design file or image in just minutes.


The Final Word on Double-Sided Banners

Double-sided banners are truly a unique and wonderful product for businesses, groups, and congregations of all sizes. If you think this awesome product may be right for your next banner purchase, you can find out more information on our double-sided banner page on our website.
