Order PVC Banners online
If you are currently considering ordering PVC Banners either from ourselves or one of the other countless websites that offer PVC Banner printing, then there are some points you should consider before choosing where to purchase from. We at Banner Printing Android have created this guide to help you through the process of ordering PVC Banners!
The quality of PVC.
One of the most important things to consider when ordering PVC banners is the quality of the PVC that your design will be printed on. Some websites may try to tempt you in with low priced PVC Banners, but these will be a waste of money if printed on low quality PVC. In order to keep costs down some sites will print onto sub-standard PVC that is not weather proof. This means that if your PVC banner is outside it will quickly be ruined by the weather, meaning you will have to buy a replacement sooner than expected. This could lead to a greater expense than ordering a more expensive, but better quality, PVC banner in the first instance.
At Banner Print Android we print onto the industry benchmark 440gsm PVC material using Eco-Solvent inks. This ensures that banners do not fade and you get the best possible usage out of your PVC banners.
The DPI of PVC Banner Printing.
Another thing to consider when shopping around for PVC banners is the DPI at which the banners are printed at. DPI (Or Dots per inch) measures how many individual dots of ink are printed per inch of material. Generally speaking higher DPI’s will result in clearer, more detailed images. To keep prices low some websites will produce PVC banners with a low DPI (some as low as 360, which is comparable to a desktop printer!) resulting in poor looking graphics which will be hard for customers to read and will send off a negative image about the business.
At Print Android we print to an industry standard of 1440 DPI which results in a fantastic, sharp finish for PVC Banners. Consider the image below, at 1440 dpi it comes out brilliantly, would it look as good at 360dpi?
PVC Banner Legibility.
A lot of websites offer very cheap banners which come in very small sizes, for example a 4ft by 2ft banner which has a recommended viewing distance of just 5 metres! Obviously if you want the message on your PVC Banner to be clear and easy to read from a distance then a larger font is required. Ideally the font size for a PVC Banner should be 15cm for every 5 metres you want your PVC to be legible for. Trying to squeeze your message onto a small, cheap PVC Banner may just turn out to be a waste of money.
At Print Android we start our banner range at 6ft by 2ft which is enough space to get a good message onto, however we can provide PVC banners as large as you require, upto 50 metres by 3.2 metres!
PVC Banner finishing.
The finishing of PVC banners is massively important. Top quality PVC banner printing can be let down by poor finishing which will the ways in which you can use a banner. Without eyelets being put in at the printing stage customers may have to put their own eyelets in to hang a banner. This make result in tears in the banner which will weaken the banner as a whole and reduce the length of time it can be used.
Eyelets are supplied as standard at Print Android, meaning that your PVC Banner can be hung up as soon as you get it delivered. Furthermore with reinforced eyelets the strength of the banner is guaranteed and tears which will affect the banner are less likely to occur.
