Custom Vinyl Banners FAQ
Do custom vinyl banners last long?
Yes, our banner vinyl is a 13 oz scrim material made specifically for printing vinyl banners. It’s lightweight yet durable and boasts a great printing surface.
Can I use vinyl banners outdoors?
Yes, all of our banners are printed on durable vinyl and can withstand exposure to rain and sunlight. However, extreme conditions should be avoided. Typical lifespan for outdoor vinyl banners is 2 years.
What's the most common vinyl banner sizes?
While there's technically no industry "standard" vinyl banner size, there are several sizes that are most common among shoppers: 4' x 2', 5' x 3', 6' x 3', 8' x 3', and 8' x 4'. Out of these sizes, the 6' x 3' is the most popular size as it fits a standard 6' table, perfect for trade show displays, and has a 1:2 ratio.
However, we can create your custom vinyl banner any size you need up to 10' tall and up to 100' long. Whether you need small or large vinyl banners, with U.S. Press, the sky is the limit!
How do I hang my vinyl banner?
Ropes, zip-ties, hardware or bungee cords applied through the grommets on the banner are the best way of installing it to a surface. Read more about how to best display vinyl banners here.
How to get wrinkles out of your vinyl banner?
Prevention is key—store your custom vinyl banner rolled, not folded, and avoid extreme temperatures for long-lasting banner perfection. You can keep your vinyl banner looking pristine by tackling wrinkles with these methods:
- Heat and Sunlight: On a sunny day, lay your vinyl banner flat in direct sunlight. The heat will help soften the vinyl, and the wrinkles should naturally smooth out.
- Low Heat: If you can't wait for the sun, you can use a hairdryer on its lowest heat setting. Hold it at a distance and move it back and forth over the wrinkled areas. Be careful not to overheat or melt the vinyl!
- Weight It Down: Lay your custom vinyl banner on a clean, flat surface and place heavy objects (books, weights, etc.) on top. Leave it for a few hours or overnight to help flatten out the wrinkles.
- Roll It Up: Roll your vinyl banner up, starting from one end, not too tightly. Leave it rolled up for a day or two, and when you unroll it, the wrinkles should be greatly reduced.
Do the cut edges of the vinyl banner wear out?
No – our vinyl banner printing process includes edge welding to ensure a long-lasting, durable product.
What are pole pockets?
Pole pockets are when an extra length of vinyl is folded over itself on the sides of each vinyl banner, allowing poles to be inserted through the seams for display. Pole pockets are needed for light pole banners as well as backdrop banners placed on telescopic stands. Our standard pole pockets are 2”. If you need a different size pole pocket for your custom vinyl banner, please specify so on the checkout page under the instructions text box.
