What Is a Scrim Banner?

by | Dec 6, 2022 | Banners

Banners come in all shapes and sizes, as well as materials. Where you’ll hang the banner determines the type of material you should choose. Some materials are best for indoor use, and others for outdoor.

Scrim vinyl is one material that works well in outdoor use and can withstand high winds and sun exposure.

What Is Scrim Vinyl?

Scrim vinyl is polyester mesh with a vinyl exterior coating. The vinyl coating gives the printed surface shine, but the mesh interior keeps it sturdy. Scrim vinyl is heavier, so most signs are only printed on a single side, but it provides the durability you need for outdoor signs. 

When Is Scrim Vinyl Used?

The most common reason to use scrim vinyl is to make your outdoor banner last longer. If you have a place to hang the banner sturdily and that can handle the weight of scrim vinyl, it’s the best option for durability and longevity. 

What Are the Advantages of Using Scrim Vinyl?

Why choose scrim vinyl over other options? Here are the most common reasons. 

Scrim Vinyl Is Durable

The most important thing about outdoor banners is durability. They’re exposed to wind, rain, and possibly snow. So they need to be durable to stand the test of time. The mesh layer between the vinyl keeps the banner in place, no matter the weather.

Scrim Vinyl Is Water Resistant

Many scrim vinyl materials are water resistant, which is great for rain and snow. However, if you want your banner to last, ensure the chosen vinyl is resistant to water to prevent premature damage. 

Scrim Vinyl Is Versatile

Scrim vinyl can be used indoors or out. While it’s most used outdoors because of its durability, more businesses are choosing to use it indoors too. As long as you have somewhere sturdy to hang it, scrim vinyl can work anywhere. 

Scrim Vinyl Helps the Banner Hang Nicely

Scrim vinyl adds durability to the banner that helps it hang nicely. You don’t have to worry about wrinkles, as the banner will hang smoothly. Scrim vinyl also accepts pigment-based inks, so the banner is clearly read from any distance.

Final Thoughts 

A scrim banner can be a good idea for anywhere you want to hang a banner as long as you have a sturdy place to hang it. It’s a great option for outdoor banners but may also work for indoor banners. Consider it as an option for your next banner to increase its durability.
