Vinyl Banner Printing
Most Popular Vinyl Banner Sizes:
Our vinyl banners are made from your choice of premium glossy or matte 13 oz. vinyl material. PrintFirm has many 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 vinyl 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.
Here are some vinyl banner printing tips that should help you improve your banner strategy.
Use high-resolution images
PrintFirm recommends the use of high-resolution images for vinyl banner printing Any uploaded images should have a minimum resolution of 300 DPI (dots per inch). Lower resolutions may appear to be fine on your computer screen, but the printed result will by fuzzy or pixelated. Use caution when adapting images found online because they are typically low resolution.
Convert the colors
If you have any images that use RGB color, be certain to convert them to CMYK before proceeding with vinyl banner printing. Since RGB is an additive color system and CMYK is a subtractive one, color differences may occur during the transition. If you convert to CMYK while using a good graphic design program, you can be certain the colors will be exactly how you want them to be.
Proof-checking the work
If PrintFirm’s graphic artists are handling your vinyl banner printing 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.
