There are different types of vinyl, but most of the time the vinyl used is called “PVC,” which stands for “polyvinyl chloride.” It is a type of plastic used in plumbing, electrical wiring, pleather, and of course vinyl signs. This type of vinyl can be created using several different weights, with heavier weights considered more durable (but may be slightly more expensive).
Vinyl mesh may also be used when there is a risk of high winds. The vinyl may also have small eyelets, known as “grommets,” which make it easier to hang the sign.
If you need help with your vinyl banners, you are welcome to contact Banners Expo. Our team can help make sure that your designs look their best, and match the artwork requirements that we need to make sure your print looks correct in the final design.
For vinyl banners, make sure the artwork you submit is full size – 100% the size of the print. The only exception is artwork completed in 300 DPI Format, which can be 50% of the size of the print. Accepted file types include:
Your font/typeface should be converted to outlines or images. For color, we use CMYK for our prints and a Pantone Matching System (PMS), so if you did not design your vinyl artwork in either of those formats, make sure you let us know.
Once the print is completed, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of high quality finishing options so that you can make sure your final banner looks exactly as you wanted. At Banners Expo, we have several finishing options to choose from, including :
If you have some type of custom requirement, let us know and we’ll see what we can do. Vinyl banners can also come equipped with banner stands and pole displays, so if you are looking for a specific type of vinyl banner it may have a very specific need.
Vinyl banner installation depends considerably on the type of banner that we created. If you installed grommets on your banner, all you need to do is use some type of reinforcement to hang it anywhere you’d like. Zip ties can be great for hanging vinyl banners on fences. You can use screws with wide washers to hang your vinyl banners indoors.
If you need help installing your vinyl banner, call Banners Expo, as we have a team that provides installation services for most of New York City and NJ.
Caring for your vinyl banner is important, as it will maximize the longevity of the banner and ensure that the design always looks crisp and bright. Vinyl banners are also very easy to care for, requiring very little maintenance. To clean your vinyl banner, you do not need any strong cleaners or abrasive cloths – in fact, these are discouraged, as they may damage the material.
Instead, simply wet a rag with a small amount of water, and wipe away any dirt or grime that has made its way onto the banner. Make sure the banner is dry before you roll it up or store it, and never fold it or use a strong rubber band to keep it rolled up, as these may cause creases that are difficult or impossible to remove.
Vinyl banners can be printed and cut into many different sizes – including custom sizes that have never been seen before. But there are several standard sizes for most types of vinyl banners. These include :
If you have a custom banner size or need something special to make sure your banner hangs correctly, please feel free and let us know.

Damage to banners is typically due to selecting the wrong banner for the location – for example, a non-mesh banner in a heavy wind area. If you have special needs for the banner, let us know.
