Are you tired of old fashioned flyers and business cards to promote your company or event? While flyers are an effective way of advertising, they do not come close to new digitally printed signs in inexpensiveness, ease of distribution and wide reach.

What Are Printed Mesh Banners?

In actuality, mesh banners are made from the same material as vinyl banners. But mesh banners have tiny holes which ensure that they allow the passage of wind and sound, thus making them a preferred choice for outdoor locations. They are ideal for high wind locations and extended exposure to the wind.

Mesh banners are printed in full color and the designer can add background color, photographs, text, and clipart. The crisscross fibers give it a high-end appearance, making it a great choice for slightly high-budget events. Mesh banners can be slightly more expensive than conventional vinyl printing materials, but their quality and durability more than make-up for the small difference in price. Mesh banners can be printed in any size.

How Are Mesh Banners Different From Conventional Vinyl Banners?

Although both vinyl and printed mesh banners have a similar concept, the texture, and material of the two differ slightly. Vinyl banners are a single piece of material that tends to parachute along with the wind. But because of their resistance to wear, they can be used outdoors, when fixed against walls or similar solid structures. The major difference between the two is that mesh, as suggested by the name itself is perforated with numerous fine holes.

Generally, mesh banners are greatly preferred for their large size and uncompromised quality that can be displayed from buildings, fences, or any large structures. Since these are mostly to be viewed from some distance, the tiny perforated holes on the surface are not visible but they give the print a refined quality.

If you want your banner to be placed on a high structure, it is likely to be subjected to moderate or strong winds. It has already been said that mesh is the best choice in this regard, as the tiny holes present on its surface allow the wind to pass through. These are more durable are the perfect choice if you plan to use it for a significant length of time.

Two Aspects in Which Vinyl Banners Trumps Mesh

Although mesh has an overwhelming number of “pros” to its name, there are two areas in which conventional vinyl may be the preferred choice.

Mesh banners are only one-sided, i.e. it cannot be printed on both sides at the same time. Vinyl banners, on the other hand, can be printed on both sides together. By hanging the banner on the street, you can ensure that your message can be seen from both sides. Besides, mesh banners are slightly more expensive. If you want your banner to be displayed for a short period of time, the vinyl banner is the right choice for you. They are great for indoor use.

The type of material to be chosen for banner printing should be decided only after a detailed understanding of the above-mentioned factors.
