What’s the best material for my banner?

Paper banners or vinyl banners to promote your business?

Banners can be printed in paper or vinyl. What weighs the most when deciding if your banners can be printed on either one is the time they are meant to be exposed and the weather conditions they must endure during that time. Check out the details of each material on this blog.Paper banner roll

Paper banners are best indoors, or for one-time events such as birthday parties, weddings or any special occasion. They can be used outdoors if there is minimum moisture. The paper banner option is lower cost but can get torn more easily, even during installation. For this reason, paper banners (with no plastic protection) can’t easily stand up to the test of time or the rigors of travel, much less the outdoors. Ideally, this material should not get wet and is not made to withstand rain or strong wind. So, if you need a banner to hold up in bad weather and outdoor conditions, paper banners may not be your best choice.

Vinyl is an excellent banner material because of its ability to be printed on and its flexibility. Due to its composition – synthetic resin or plastic consisting of polyvinyl chloride or a related polymer – vinyl is resistant to moisture and humidity; resulting in a long lasting and durable material. You can use vinyl banners for trade show booths, advertising a special occasion, or just promoting your business or event. This durable material can resist weather elements much better than paper.

Using paper might work for your next birthday or wedding party, presentation or meeting, but for banner signs to promote your business, the material doesn’t compare to vinyl.

Whether you choose vinyl or paper, promotional banners are one of the best tools for advertising indoor and outdoor events.
