At Signs By Tomorrow, we’ll recommend any of these styles of outdoor fabric banners, depending on your application:
Signs By Tomorrow creates outdoor fabric banners for many promotional, informative or decorative applications, including:
Highly versatile, outdoor fabric banners Signs By Tomorrow can be installed in a wide variety of ways. Most feature grommets (i.e., metal-rimmed eyelets) at the top two corners, all four corners or along the edges for larger versions.
Use ropes or bungee cords to attach the grommets to light poles, posts or other stationary objects. Outdoor fabric banners tend to be lighter than other banner alternatives, so you can suspend them from stage scaffolding or hang them from a rope. If used as building wraps, you can also attach outdoor fabric banners to construction scaffolding, exposed beams or other structural elements.
Another mounting option? Use screws and washers to attach your custom outdoor fabric banners to solid or ridged surfaces such as brick, concrete, walls or wood.
How do outdoor fabric banners differ from vinyl outdoor banners?
It’s largely a matter of taste, as each type offers certain advantages. Fabric banners generally reproduce graphics more accurately. They’re lighter, and perhaps more suitable for extra-large applications. Fabric banners offer a degree of stretch for a smoother, more appealing wrinkle-free look. What’s more, if used year-after-year as many banners are (e.g., for seasonal events, holiday themes, etc.), they transport and store more easily.
All that said, vinyl outdoor banners are generally thought to be more resistant to wind, rain, sun and snow. If weather-resistance is a primary concern, the choice is often vinyl for outdoor business banners and outdoor event banners. Graphics reproduce well on vinyl outdoor banners. They can also be readily cleaned and stored for seasonal use.
Can custom outdoor fabric banners be used indoors?
Mesh outdoor fabric banners are not often used indoors (although they could be) but other types are. In fact, many marketers have their fabric banners work twice as hard by using them indoors as well as outdoors. The use of lightweight 100% polyester fabric on many banners makes them ideal for indoor events and applications whenever you need a vibrant and colorful display.
Can custom outdoor fabric banners stretch?
Yes, outdoor fabric banners can be stretched slightly to offer a bit of “play” when mounting or hanging. Another plus? When mounted, wrinkles tend to disappear over time! However, it’s best to keep stretching your outdoor fabric banners to a minimum to avoid tearing and help ensure a longer life for the fabric.
Do you recommend a matte or gloss finish for outdoor fabric banners?
A matte finish is the industry standard for outdoor fabric banners. Matte-finished fabric banners are better light absorbers and more easily viewed by consumers. A glossy finish would reflect light and reduce readability.
