Smooth Blockout Vinyl Banner
- This 14oz smooth vinyl banner if fire retardant, resists curling and has a blockout layer making it excellent for retractable banner stands and other indoor display applications. It's low gloss finish and smooth surface make it excellent for a wide range of display uses. It's also waterproof so it can be used outdoors, but it doesn't have enough tear strength to hold up in wind. Because of this, it's only for short term use in calm wind conditions. Available in widths up to 80".Longevity of up to 1 month outdoors, depending on wind and installation, and 5-20 years indoors.Favorite FeaturesThis is a smooth banner material, so it prints really well, and the light blocking layer prevents any light or shadows from showing through from behind. It's considered a curl free material, so hangs fairly flat, and looks great for such an inexpensive material.DrawbacksIt doesn't hang as flat as the Curl Free banner. It doesn't have enough tear strength to survive in the wind. It's a PVC product, so it's not eco-friendly.Best ApplicationsThis is the material that's the Economy Banner option in our retractable banner stands and portable banner stands. It's a great, inexpensive option for those displays, and would also be good as a hanging indoor banner.
If you are ordering your banner with grommets, the best way to hang it is to put some tension on the grommets so the banner is pulled tight and hangs flat. If you are using banner hanging hardware to hang the banner without grommets, follow the instructions that came with your hardware. We sell banner hanging systems that are inexpensive, make for a great looking hanging display, and don't require any special finishing on the banner. Check out the page for Poster & Banner Hangers to learn more about the different banner hanging products we offer.
If your banner is being installed in a banner stand, see the installation instructions on the page for the banner stand model you are using. Be sure to choose the correct finishing options to match the type of banner display you have. For example, if you are using an X-banner stand, you will need grommets in the corners of the banner. If you are unsure, tell us in the Special Instructions what display you have so we can make sure the finishing is correct for that specific purpose.
