Having an effective banner certainly gets your message out loud and clear in Boston.

There are advantages and differences to each.

Fabric banners can be almost transparent or thickly opaque. They can be light so they move in the breeze or heavy so they don’t move at all. They tend to be easier to transport than vinyl because they fold better, but don’t usually work well outside for long periods of time. One of our clients hung transparent banners on a theater in the round stage so the actors could move among them and still could be seen by the entire audience. Those fabric banners had wooden poles inserted in seams across the top and bottom to keep them smooth and straight. Fabric banners do not reflect light, so where there is a risk of glare, they are more appropriate.

Promoters use vinyl banners for several reasons. They are more durable and last a long time. They can be hung outdoors for long periods of time. They can be printed with a gloss or matte finish. Images on vinyl banners are vivid and can have sharper definition than those printed on fabric. Vinyl banners can be hung by putting grommets in the corners so that they can be hung by rope. Some applications require that vinyl banners be held up by Velcro so that they can be taken down and replaced easily. Inserting poles in seams along the top and bottom is effective when a banner is free-standing. Some banners are used simply as table coverings and don’t require any sort of finishing. One of our library clients wrapped colorful banners around large posts in the children’s section to make it a more fun environment.

Retractable Banners

Of course, there are always the beloved pop-up banners, which are easy to transport and stand up on their own. You can swap out the banner in the stand whenever you want to fit the occasion. These display banners are sometimes referred to as “roll-up” banner stands because they operate similar to a window shade. The imprinted banner is stored in the base. During set-up, it is rolled up or down and attached to a support rail, making assembly quick and easy. There are pop-up banners in tabletop sizes and big ones that are up to 80″ tall.

There are a multitude of other banner types for all applications. Just ask one of our associates and we’ll help you decide which one is best for you from our location in Boston. Banners from Boston Business Printing are the perfect choice for your business!
