What Are PVC Banners?

by | Dec 6, 2022 | Banners

If you’re thinking about advertising on a banner indoors or out, you might consider a PVC banner. The material is flexible enough to withstand weather conditions, and it’s also waterproof. 

PVC banners work for any industry and are great for long-term advertising and shorter-term needs, such as grand openings or big sales.

What Are PVC Banners Made Of?

PVC stands for Polyvinyl Chloride, a popular plastic used for many needs. PVC banners have various substrates, including cotton, canvas, and mesh. The right substrate for your banner depends on where you’ll hang it, indoors or out.

Types of PVC Banners

The type of PVC banner you choose should depend on where you’ll hang it, how long you need it to last, and what you’re trying to accomplish.

The most common types include the following.

Standard PVC Banners

Standard vinyl works well for most banners, including short-term and long-term needs. The heavier the quality and weight of the vinyl, the longer it will last. If you’re looking for a long-term banner, consider 720gsm vinyl banners.

Mesh PVC Banners

Mesh PVC banners are perfect for outdoor use and some indoor situations too. Mesh banners have tiny holes throughout them, allowing wind, sun, and sound to pass through without causing damage. They work great outdoors, especially against a chain link fence, as the wind can pass through the banner without causing it to wrinkle or rip. 

You can’t see the mesh holes from a distance, and the flexibility of the banner allows it to be hung from higher heights without the risk of damage. 

What Is the Difference Between PVC And Vinyl Banners?

You’ll likely hear the terms PVC and vinyl banners, making you think there is a choice between the two. However, PVC and vinyl are the same; they are just different terms for the same material.

How Long Do PVC Banners Last?

How long you get out of your PVC banner depends on the gsm chosen and where/how you hang it. For example, mesh banners hung outdoors will typically last a couple of years, but a high-quality indoor banner that isn’t subject to weather conditions, including UV rays, might last as long as five years or more.
