Vinyl Banners: Promote Anywhere in Any Weather
Vinyl banners are the tried-and-tested way to advertise and make sure your message is seen. They grab the attention of event-goers at business openings, festivals, trade shows, sporting events, school functions, and any event that needs visibility.
More than effective promotional tools, vinyl banners also offer great value for money. Durable vinyl lets you set up even in outdoor locations, and you can reuse these promotions as much as you want. Vinyl banners are a great marketing investment for any business and will last for years.

Choose the Perfect Size Vinyl Banners
We offer banners in a wide range of sizes, so you’re sure to find the right fit for your event. Keep these in mind when choosing the right size of your vinyl banner:
- The size of the area where it will be displayed.
- The distance from which it will be viewed.
Here are some of our most popular sizes and their application:
- 72” x 24” is ideal for smaller indoor areas with events like a product launch or pop up store.
- 72” x 36” works well for high traffic areas and is the smallest size to consider for an outdoor event, like a grand opening.
- 72” x 48” is even better for crowded areas. It’s another great option for events where you have a booth, like trade shows or festivals.
- 96” x 48” is ideal for big venues with hundreds of attendees. Consider putting this on the side of a building to advertise an upcoming event or inside a convention center during a highly attended trade show.
Need a custom size? Our design services can help you with custom sizes up to 96" x 240".
Durable Vinyl Material for Indoor or Outdoor Use
Choose from three durable vinyl materials for your vinyl banner.
Standard 13 oz. scrim vinyl has a matte finish, which provides great visibility even in bright light. This popular option is economical and lasts three to five years outdoors.
Mesh 9 oz. vinyl is an excellent choice to use outdoors on fences, as road signs, and as stand banners viewed from a distance. It has small holes that allow air to flow through it, offering tear resistance in windy environments.
Premium 15 oz. vinyl is thicker than the standard vinyl banner material and is puncture resistant. The smooth, durable surface is great for outdoor and indoor use. Use it for tradeshows or conference banners. This is our strongest banner material and lasts up to five years outdoors.
Hanging Made Easy
How do you plan to hang your vinyl banner? We offer treatment options that make putting it on display easy.
- Hem is recommended for outdoor banners—with or without grommets. It prevents the material from unraveling. The banner edges are folded over and heat welded to reinforce the sides, which helps the vinyl banner maintain its shape.
- Grommets are the most popular and most convenient way to hang a banner. Nickel grommets or eyelets are fastened around the edges or on the corners of the banner. Add grommets with the hem option to strengthen the banner edges and prevent them from tearing apart.
You can use rope, bungee cords, suction cups or pear snap hooks to attach your vinyl banner to a solid structure, like a building, window, reception desk, trade show booth, or railing.
- Pole pockets allow poles or rope to be inserted into the banner, which carries its weight and keeps it taut. The banner edges are folded over and heat welded to form a pocket.
It’s important to keep in mind that the final size includes the pole pockets. Consider leaving ample space above and below your artwork so that it prints clearly without being disrupted by the pole pockets.
Tips for Designing Effective Vinyl Banners

Professional design matters. Work with an experienced graphic designer who understands branding and can distinguish your name with visual strategies.
Less is more. Keep your messaging on point—short and simple for quick and easy reading.

Get people to take action. Guide your target audience on the next steps to convert prospects into buyers.
Location, location, location. Hang your vinyl banner in a high traffic area where your target audience can’t miss it. Some suggestions include busy intersections, trade shows, sporting events, shopping centers, and more.
