Materials of a banner

A banner is often used as a promotion and display tool in activities. In fact, there are various banners of different materials and characteristics on the street. Therefore, what types of banner material is suitable for you?

The printing company will always ask you about the banner printing material everytime you go there although you are not familiar with it.

There are several different materials for the banner (glossy, matte, and black). However, these are not very suitable in some cases, and other clothes are needed for the banner. The following will analyze the characteristics and uses of the banner of various materials to give everyone a basic understanding.

The purpose of a banner

Event banner:

In general, a banner is used a short time in events and it is mainly for one-time use. Our banner SHOP will recommend to use (low-definition, high-definition, ultra-high-definition printing) low-definition that has a resolution of 8 million, which is suitable for viewing from 1 meter away. High-definition with 3000 resolution is suitable for viewing from 0.5 meters away. Ultra-high-definition with 5000 resolution has detailed pictures. However, the general size of a banner for taking pictures is 3 feet x 8 feet.

Street advertisement banner:

Street advertisements have to be exposed to the sun and rain for a long time, and will be watched by passers-by closely. Therefore, banner SHOP will recommend high-definition or ultra-high-definition in this case. The banner produced in the banner factory should be durable during windy and rainy weather, and it should be unlike a soft cloth that will be broken easily.

Large outdoor banner:

In general, custom outdoor banners are large-scale with mesh cloth. Mesh cloth is permeable to air with half of holes and half of painting. The printing accuracy of outdoor large-scale advertisements is not high because high-definition pictures will be slightly darker when viewed from a distance.


A  banner as a backdrop is usually used in large-scale events. So, it is recommended to use a banner with high-definition, or even a black core which is black in the middle and the non-transparent layer. In addition, many backdrops are generally 3-5 meters, and we can make connections on it even if it exceeds the printing sealing size, which will not make it obvious and not affect the design.

How to save a banner

It is best not to fold a banner to preserve the integrity of the banner screen. Instead, it is recommended to roll it up for storage, which will not affect the integrity of the picture and make it convenient for transportation.
