  • PrintFirm gives you plenty of options with banner printing. Banners are a great advertising method because they can be placed in many outdoor and indoor locations, and they are readable from long distances. Banners are also reusable. We have two types of available banners for your banner printing needs: vinyl banners and roll up banners.

    Our vinyl banners are made from your choice of 13 oz. Ultraflex PVC or 15oz. Ultraflex BIOFLEX. The latter substance is biodegradable. PrintFirm has 22 size choices for vinyl banner printing, ranging from 2 feet by 3 feet all the way up to 4 feet by 10 feet. You can select the desired size from our website drop-down menu. When ordering banner printing with PrintFirm, you also have the option to add grommets. These are holes punches in the outer edge of the banner that are reinforced with brass rings. Grommets enable the insertion of ropes to tie the banners to various objects. Additionally, a hem can be requested for the edges, a folded over and glued fabric process that measures an inch in width. Adding a hem will increase the durability of the banner so that rips are less likely.

    Another option for vinyl banner printing with PrintFirm is to add wind slits. You can add 2, 4, 6, 8, or 10 wind slits. These are cuts in the banner that enable air to pass through, and are useful for larger banners in high wind conditions. Keep in mind that wind slits may distort your banner text (if you place text over it) and make it more difficult to read, so we don’t recommend them unless absolutely necessary.

    Roll up banners are a good banner printing alternative, especially for indoor banners. They are available in the following sizes: 33” x 78.5”, 39” x 78.5”, and 47” x 78.5”. They have retractable anodized aluminum stands with two sturdy support feet that swivel out. A 3-piece support pole is held together by bungee cord, and a clamping bar on the top securely holds each banner. PrintFirm roll up banners also include a handy carrying case.

    The following design tips should help you achieve your full color banner printing goals:

    1. Use large fonts that are not overly fancy. Since many banners are designed to be viewed from far distances, the text should be easily readable from those distances.
       
    2. Don’t clutter the design. It results in an unprofessional appearance for banner printing. Enough whitespace (area without design) should be added to the design to give the banner a pleasant appearance. If you must include more text or graphics, we recommend that you select a larger banner size to avoid a design crowding problem.
       
    3. Pay attention to contrast with banner printing. Dark text on a dark background and light text on a light background will reduce banner readability, especially at long distances.
       
    4. Do not use an unskilled designer. If you don’t have anyone in your organization with enough graphic design skill, you can ask PrintFirm’s team of talented graphic artist to create your design.

    The following vinyl banner design tips should help you achieve success with your banner campaign.

    1. Write a bold vinyl banner headline in a large but not overly fancy font. A font that is too fancy might be difficult to read for the average viewer. Since many banners are designed to be viewed from far distances, the text should be easily readable from those distances. 
       
    2. Don’t crowd your vinyl banner design. There should be enough whitespace (area without design) so that there is separation between text and artwork, creating a pleasant viewing experience. If you must include more information than will comfortably fit on an average-sized vinyl banner, you may want to consider a larger size.

      The headline should be in a large but not overly fancy font. A font that is too fancy might be difficult to read for the average viewer. Since many banners are designed to be viewed from far distances, the text should be easily readable from those distances.
       
    2. Don’t crowd your roll up banner design.
      There should be enough whitespace (area without design) so that there is separation between text and artwork, creating a pleasant viewing experience. If you must include more information than will comfortably fit on a small roll up banner, you may want to consider a larger size.
       
    3. You can upload a print-ready roll up banner design to PrintFirm.
      We accept major graphic design file formats such as PDF, PSD, and TIF. If nobody in your organization is skilled a graphic design, click the “custom design” button when you place your order. PrintFirm’s team of talented graphic artists will create a unique design.
       
    4. If PrintFirm’s graphic artists are handling your roll up banner design, it’s a good idea to request electronic proofing from the website drop-down menu when you place your order. After we finish your design, we send you a PDF file showing the artwork, text, crop marks, and fold/score lines (if any). This gives you a last opportunity to proofread the design before it is loaded into the printing machine.
