Mesh Banners are printed in full color on one side of 9 mil Mesh with sizes ranging from 2′ x 2′ to 10′ x 150′. They are built to stand up to the elements, though they do wear with time. We offer a variety of finishing options, including hemming, grommets, and pole pockets.

Note:
Because of the wide potential size range of our large format products, there are additional file setup considerations. Proofs are typically shown half size. For other details, please review the file setup section carefully.

Due to material, all substrates may expand or shrink from batch to batch, which makes exact cuts very difficult. We do not recommend borders. If you would like borders, please make sure they are at least 2″ thick. We will not reprint if the borders are not exactly the same on all sides after cutting.

ART:
Customer must supply appropriately sized print ready art for any images and logos they wish to use on the product. Editing of customer supplied artwork will be at an additional cost.

Marketing Tips

Ideal for windy conditions, Mesh Banners communicate your message in a highly visible way. Commonly placed along fences or between poles in windy areas, they can be used in a number of ways, including temporary signage and making printed announcements you want everyone passing by to see. If you’re opening a new store, having a sale, or announcing an event and you want to let passersby know, use Mesh Banners.

Our standard sizes, listed below, are the most popular in the industry:

Available in custom sizes ranging from 2′ x 2′ up to 30′ Wide x 10′ High.

9 mil Mesh

Ideal for outdoor use in windy conditions, Mesh creates a flat background that helps your text or design pop on the banner. This Mesh allows 25% of light to pass through.

4/0

Full color (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black as above) on the front and no printing on the back.

Grommets are round, metal hole reinforcements. They are a convenient addition to use for mounting your printed piece. Grommets are available in 2 or 4 corners or placed every two feet for larger printed pieces.

Hemmed edges are made by folding back the edge of a Vinyl Banner and sewing the folded edge to the banner. This creates a professional, finished edge and helps to maintain shape.

Pole Pockets allow you to slide a pole through the edge of the banner along the length or height for hanging. Adding pole pockets does not reduce the final size of your banner.

File Preparation

In order to ensure your files are print-ready, we recommend that you upload them in PDF format. When you generate a print-ready PDF, your computer will use the settings in Adobe Acrobat Distiller or any other PDF generating programs you may use. Please make sure that these are set properly before generating your PDF file.

We also accept .JPG (JPEG), .EPS and .TIF (TIFF) file types, however PDF is the preferred format.

Check your file to make sure it meets our file creation guidelines. This will help speed up the production of your project and give your printed piece the best results.

  1. Use the CMYK colorspace (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK). These are industry standard printing colors. CMYK colors are different than RGB (Red, Green, Blue), which are used to display colors on your screen.
  2. Use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for image files.
  3. Specify trim area with crop marks. (Don’t place crop marks inside the work area.)
  4. Artwork should have 1/8″ (0.125″) bleed extending past the trim line. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
  5. Safe Area is the 1/8″ (0.125″) area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
  6. If you want printed borders, they must be placed a minimum of 1/8″ (0.125″) inside the trim line and include bleed. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
