There is two main fabrics 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.

Display Material is environmentally conscious and can often utilise water based inks (also better for the environment) PVC tends to use plastic based materials and inks that can be harmful to the environment.
We generally use good quality environmentally conscious polyester knit material or heavy display material, according to how banners will be used (and whether they are needed for single use)
Fabric material is becoming more popular, as the material and inks used are better for the environment.
