How to order
Speak to us about what you need the banners for and we can help you choose the right fabric and finish to achieve great results.
There is two main fabrics, with a number of finishes available:
- Fabric Banners Printing – Fabric is becoming more popular as people move away from using pvc based materials. We have been making banners with materials that are environmentally responsible, without losing any colour reproduction. In fact, we feel fabric looks so much more vibrant.
- PVC / Vinyl Banner Printing Services – PVC or Vinyl work best if banners are used in areas subject to displacement of moisture or dirt, like water and mud from a busy road, for example.
Simply guide us on how the banner will be used and we can recommend the best solution.

What is the difference between standard print and double sided print?
Standard Print – When it comes to banner printing, a single piece of material is used, so artwork is essentially seen clearly on one side.
Standard print is ideal if the banner is going to be placed or installed in front of a brick wall (or similar) where it is impossible to view it from the back.
Double Sided Print – 2 Pieces of material printed and stitched together (back to back)
Double sided print is ideal if you require the banner to be seen from the front and back, for example, at arenas, parks or on fences.
How long will banners last?
Product life will depend on how the banners will be used.
Indoor Banners used occasionally will last forever, as long as they are stored away safely, for example.
Indoor banners used as permanent signage every day will fade over time, as natural light affects ink. We expect at least 2-3 years usage though, by which time you will likely want to update advertising copy anyway.
Outdoor Banners used over 2-4 weeks at a time can be re-used many times if you store them away safely.
On the other hand, if they are used as permanent signage in all weathers we would expect discolouration and deterioration to occur eventually.
Sailflags always recommend letting us know how the banners will be used, allowing us in turn, to recommend the correct materials to give you the longest product life possible.
We have very good relationships with some of the finest suppliers of banner materials in Europe, which means we can always source the right solutions for our customers.
What is the difference between fabric display material and PVC?
Fabric display material is environmentally conscious and can often utilise water based inks, which are also better for the environment.
PVC is heavily plastic based and the inks used are more harmful to the environment.
Making the right choice will heavily rely on how your printed banners will be used. Please therefore explain this to us at time of ordering and we can help you choose the right fabric.
