DESIGN, PRODUCTION AND SERVICE
Our customers value the fact that we are able to offer banner design and/or banner production in-house by a dedicated team of designers and production staff. Most importantly, this means that we always have complete control over quality and delivery deadlines whilst keeping personal contact with the customer at all stages of their job. We are happy to print and supply a single banner or a thousand banners and treat every project with equal care.
Materials: Our banners are fabricated from high quality materials to endure long-term exterior exposure. We use solid 780gsm reinforced banner grade PVC with a blockout centre to stop the ‘ghosting’ of images from one side to the other in bright sunlight. The materials are flame-retardant and have a UV life of 7 years.
Finishing: All banners are stitched and finished to a marine standard with double rolled pockets top and bottom, plus nickle plated brass eyelets.
Size: We can offer banners in custom sizes up to a maximum of 800 x 3000mm (this is the absolute largest size that can safely be installed onto a lamp column – regardless of any designers claims! Check all our recommendations for the individual systems, as the maximum banner size varies for each).
Print: We offer an in-house digital printing service which can be tailored to suite the customers specific requirements and budget. Our 4 - colour solvent based digital machine is ideal where the customer requires high resolution photographic reproduction of images and/or has short runs of different designs within one banner campaign. The UV life of the inks are stated at 2 years but in practice we have banners that have been in place for over 5 years with no significant fading.
Double sided printing: The majority of our banner printing is double sided. We only use double sided banner material and print both sides, we do not use single sided material stitched back to back to make a double-sided banner – this will result in the banner becoming torn or ripped within a very short space of time.
Design: Our in-house team are happy to work with prepared artwork in any format or can create bespoke designs as required at very competitive rates. Please contact us for a quotation.
Supplied Artwork: When preparing your artwork please convert all text to graphics (vectored lines), otherwise it is quite possible we will have trouble importing if we do not have the correct fonts. Please also ensure that the file is free of masks and layers.
