Care & Use for Vinyl Banners
Vinyl banners are great for outdoor signage.
Cleaning your vinyl backdrop
- You can wipe down your vinyl backdrop with a little bit of water and mild soap. It is not recommended to use harsh chemicals because it could damage the material and ink.
Storing your Vinyl Banner
We recommend keeping the shipping box so you can easily roll up and store the banner away. Do not fold your vinyl backdrop, once the material becomes creased it is very hard to get the creases out, always roll the banner instead of fold.
- Your printed vinyl will last many years with normal care.
Uses for your Vinyl Banners
You can use your vinyl banners outdoors or indoors. Our vinyl banners are finished with a strong hem and grommets on all 4 sides, making it super easy to hang virtually anywhere.
Great for events like:
- Sponsor Banners on fields
- Window Signs
- Outdoor signage
Setup and Takedown
Using the hems and grommets you can easily hang the banner by using either hooks, wire, rope, zip ties, etc. to pull through the grommets to hang.
Can I order a custom size vinyl banner?
Yes, pick the closest size up from the size you want and mention in the comments the size you need the poster cut down to. You can also contact one of our knowledgeable representatives and they can assist you with your custom poster.
Can I use my vinyl banner outside?
Yes, you can use the banner outside, the material is durable, strong and waterproof making it perfect for outdoor and indoor use.
Can my vinyl banner be double sided?
The regular vinyl banners can be double sided, however the material is a little thin and the back printed graphic may cause a shadow on the front if any light source is behind it. We recommend purchasing 2 banners and hanging them back to back, however, if you would really like double sided we also recommend going with the 15oz Vinyl Posters, as this material has a light blocking liner and will be better for double sided printing.
Where will the grommets be placed?
The grommets will be placed approx. every 2ft on all sides of the mesh banner. Each corner will have a grommet.
How many colors or details can I use in my artwork, will it cost extra?
You can use any number of colors or any amount of detail in your artwork without incurring any additional fees. We print our fabric with dye sublimation technology in full color and no matter how many colors or how detailed the artwork is, it won't affect the cost of the sign.
What color profile should I use in my artwork?
We accept CMYK, RGB, Mixed colors and Pantone colors. We use a 4-color process, and each color profile will be converted to meet the original coloring as closely as possible.
When will I get a proof?
Typically, you'll receive a proof via email from our graphics department within 1-2 hours of placing the order, if the order is placed during regular business hours of 8:30am - 5pm EST, Monday - Friday, with the exception of holidays. If you place your order during off hours/days, you'll receive a proof 1-2 hours from the time we re-open.
I don't have a print ready file or software to set up artwork, how can I get artwork set up?
Unfortunately, we don't offer artwork set up in house. Good websites to find graphic designers are fiverr.com or 99designs.com. If you are not able to find a designer please contact us and we can refer you to freelance designers we work with often.
I realized I sent the wrong file when I received the proof, what do I do?
No worries, this is why we send proofs! If you realized something is wrong in your artwork or sent the wrong file, simply respond to the graphics proof email, and let them know if you are sending a new file or have changes to your design online artwork. Our graphics team will always send you updated proofs, and nothing goes to print without your approval.
I approved of the proof then realized it was wrong, what do I do?
We work fast over here, once the proof is approved it moves to production quickly. If you realize the proof was wrong after approving contact us as soon as possible. We can try to holt production if your order has not started to print yet. Once it starts printing it will be hard to pull it back at that point so the sooner you can let us know the better chances, we have to stop it.
