Custom Mesh Banners
Wanting to get your business noticed outside your store or venue even in winds that diminish the effectiveness of traditional banners? A Mesh Vinyl Banner is an excellent alternative to cutting wind slits that can tear a banner and is your perfect solution to withstanding the elements while providing an elegant display in open spaces where weather is a factor.
When you need a banner that will be used in an outdoor setting, stretched between any two poles, where wind gusts are present, mesh weave vinyl signs are the preferred display option because of their porous nature. The perforated weaved vinyl allows for wind to easily pass through, preventing any unnecessary billowing that will detract from your banner's message.
Made of a lightweight 8oz webbed vinyl, the mesh weave we use is well suited for banners displayed in open areas outdoors where wind is prevalent. The material is perforated with very small holes that allow wind, light, and sound to easily pass through while not affecting the quality of printing. It becomes opaque if hung onto a backing, and semi-translucent if hung free flowing.
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 through as a preventative method to eliminate possible tearing. Although these slits help to allow wind to pass, they also tremendously weaken the vinyl's structural integrity, where the strength of mesh vinyl is not compromised, because the holes are intentionally woven and not an after though.
If your banner hangs free flowing between any two anchors, structures, poles or trees, it becomes somewhat semi-translucent, depending on the lighting. It is possible to see through the banner from both sides, especially from the back.
Mesh vinyl also allows sound to easily pass through without creating any echo, making these banners highly desired for stage and concert banners even when hung in front of speakers and amps.
We use latest generation 6 Color HP Latex Print Technology. All banners printed in High Pass High Quality Mode (6 pass / 1200 DPI, CMYK LC LM mode), resulting in stunning high resolution prints, with smooth skin tones & gradients, bright logos & text colors, and crisp clear printing with no fuzziness or blurriness down to 4pt text.
8oz mesh vinyl is specially perforated weave material that allows for high winds to pass through the material hence minimizing damage to the banner in windy outdoor settings. Also this light weight material is perfect for special use when a flow through material is needed to pass air, sound and light.
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, helping your banner withstand wear, pressure and poor weather better than alternatives like stitching, gluing and taping. This is because the vinyl layers are actually fused together into one and works well for commercial use.
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.
