Custom Mesh Banners
Wanting to get your business noticed outside your store or venue even in winds that diminish the effectiveness of traditional banners? Printing you banner on mesh vinyl is an excellent alternative to cutting wind slits that can cause a banner to be torn, which is especially important in open spaces where wind needs to flow through your banner.
When you need a banner that will be used in an outdoor setting, stretched between any two poles, where wind gusts are present, the weaved webbing of our mesh vinyl allows for wind to easily pass through, preventing any unnecessary billowing that will detract from your printed artwork and message.
Made of a lightweight 8oz vinyl strands wove tightly together, this process forms very small holes allowing for wind, light, and sound to easily pass through while not affecting the quality of printing.
A banner printed on mesh vinyl is fast becoming the preferred choice for outdoor displays due to technological improvements in print visibility while reducing stress caused by the elements.
Prior to mesh vinyl, the only choice was to cut multiple circular slits in a banner to help create areas for wind to pass. Although these slits help to allow wind to pass, they also tremendously weaken the vinyl's structural integrity, which is not the case for mesh vinyl.
If you install a mesh banner between any two anchors, structures, poles or trees, the banner will be somewhat semi-translucent, depending on the lighting.
Mesh vinyl allows sound to easily pass through without creating an echo, making these banners highly desired for stage and concert displays even when hung in front of speakers and amps.
We use latest generation 6 Color HP Latex Print Technology. All printing on mesh vinyl is performed in High Pass High Quality Mode (6 pass / 1200 DPI, CMYK LC LM mode), resulting in stunning high resolution prints.
In order to prevent fraying and extend lifespan, we fold and heat weld the edges to bond together approximately 1 inch of mesh vinyl on all four sides, forming a connection that cannot be torn apart! Heat welding provides maximum strength, because the mesh layers are actually fused together into one.
The #2-sized metal grommets we use have proven to be extremely durable. They measure 3/4" on the outside with about 1/2" diameter hole. The smooth inside edges ensure cords or rope passing through the hole will not chaff as much as other usages and therefore has lower risk of cutting whatever is used to hang the sign.
