Mesh Banners are some of the most versatile signage available and it does particularly well outdoors. Our 9oz mesh material, 100% polyester mesh banners allow light, sound and most importantly wind to travel right through them while still displaying vibrant, head-turning images. Their lack of wind resistance makes PVC Mesh Banner last far longer outdoors than their traditional counterparts because they don’t billow in the wind. To ensure your mesh banner lasts as long as possible hang it with bungee cords to relieve additional stress. Mesh Banners are most commonly used at sporting events, concerts, festivals and trade shows, but they also work perfectly to advertise your retail outlet and other businesses or marketing needs.
Mesh Banners Vs Vinyl Banners
Regular vinyl banners are prone to the “sail effect”; they catch the wind and billow out. This makes your message difficult to read and strains the banner material. You can opt to cut wind slits or baffles into your vinyl banner, but this lessens the overall tensile strength of the material and interferes with your banner’s message. The crisscrossed fibers of pvc mesh banner are breathable so your banner withstands high winds without sacrificing durability or lifespan. Even though your mesh banner can withstand high winds, it’s always a good idea to take your banner down if you anticipate severe weather.
Vinyl Banners have their uses too though, especially indoors. Custom vinyl banners are generally cheaper per square foot but will not work outdoors at construction sites. If you plan on hanging banners from the ceiling indoors in front of harsh lights, you may want to avoid using a Mesh Banner. Our Vinyl Banners are made from a special “block out” material that blocks out all light that is trying to pass through it. This makes Vinyl Banners much easier to read when they’re hung right in front of harsh lighting, more so than Mesh Banners. Turn-around time is usually about 1 week for all of our banners including vinyl-coated polyester banners. If you want double-sided printing on your mesh banners, we may need a few additional days.
Uses for Mesh Banner
Mesh Banners are most commonly used for outdoor sporting events, festivals, concerts, trade shows, and community events. Our Mesh Banners are perfect for outdoor use because they’re completely waterproof and printed with fade resistant ink. They can be used for decoration or to display important information like the different field and stage labels. Mesh Banners can also be used to wrap fences without adding stress to the fence or being blown over by the wind. Thanks to the versatility of Mesh Banners, they also have many commercial uses. We do not recommend putting mesh banners in a banner stand.
You can literally wrap entire sections of your office space or retail location with Mesh Banners. They’re a highly cost-effective choice for large-scale seasonal advertising because when the season ends, you can safely roll them up and store them until next year’s use. Use Custom Mesh Banners to display product information on sales and product launches or upcoming company events. Mesh Banner is perfect for wrapping around your construction site perimeter fences, they can display a large amount of information and don’t add strain to your temporary fence. They can also be designed so that people on the inside can see out like window tint.
Mesh Banner Printing
Our top of the line printers can handle substrates of varying thicknesses and print up to 1440 DPI resolution. We print all of our mesh banners with high-quality environmentally friendly inks. We can also print constantly, 24/7. If you need a proof before printing your banner, we are happy to send you an open image digital proof. If you are submitting artwork for your custom vinyl banners, make sure it is in a machine-readable form.
Mesh Banners are naturally vibrant and display a vivid image, but actual gloss finishes are not available. If you were to laminate a mesh banner it would no longer allow the wind, sound, and light to pass through. For your matte, gloss and “blackout” banners please refer to our Vinyl Banner section. Here at Non-Stop Signs we charge for your product based on square footage, type and quantity of material used, so you will never be forced to simplify your image to save money.
Mesh Banner Sizes
Our default Mesh Banner size is up to 100″ wide, but literally, any size is available. For larger banners over 100″ wide we seamlessly stitch multiple mesh pieces together, though you’d never be able to notice by looking at them. Our precision CNC routers allow for absolutely any shape of the banner to be cut, but the mounting points and structural integrity need to be taken into consideration. By default, your banner should have grommets installed for mounting every 2-3 feet, custom options are available and sometimes necessary. We can make custom mesh banners to any size and shape. Thankfully our talented design team is available to walk you through the entire process.
Mesh Banner Installation
When requested we add grommets every 2-3 feet of your banner for mounting. Grommets are small metals ring that clamps onto the banner and allows for a stronger mounting point. To add years to the life of your mesh banner, hang it with bungee cords instead of traditional hooks. When you hang these mesh banners and any banner really with bungee cords, the cords relieve some of the stress caused by the wind and prevent material degradation. Custom mounting options like pole hung banners are available, so if you have something else in mind don’t hesitate to let us know.
Mesh Banner Care
These unique Mesh banners are much easier to clean than your traditional Banner signage. Our Mesh Banners are made from 100% polyester just like many clothing items, so they can be cleaned. We suggest washing them with cold water to increase their longevity. Once they’re clean, lay flat or hang dry them. Do NOT machine wash, dry, iron or bleach your banner as doing so can result in permanent damage to the material. Mesh printed banners should last for many years.
