What Are Custom Banners and How Can You Use Them?

Vinyl is a synthetic material used for a wide range of print projects, including banners. Vinyl banners, whether solid or mesh are durable and highly printable, making the perfect short-term media for eye-catching messaging. There are multiple banner thicknesses to choose from.  Mesh banners are most useful in windy locations or along fences. Our studio professionals will help you determine which banner media option best suits your advertising needs.

Designing and purchasing a vinyl banner from SpeedPro provides plenty of options to showcase your organization or event.  Use your new banners to:

  • Create greater visibility during trade shows

Our Different Vinyl Banner Options

Purchasing a custom vinyl banner from SpeedPro means being able to custom your banners size, and design. We offer a variety of banner material to best meet your needs and help you find a useful solution with options like:

  • Hung vinyl banners: This classic banner features grommets allowing the banner to be hung with rope or cords. Solid banner vinyl comes in standard 13oz or more durable 18oz thickness. 18oz is primarily used for long-term, heavy weather outdoor signs.
  • Standing banners: Standing banners are a classic choice for conferences, trade show kiosks and special events. You can post them at doorways, using them to advertise products or services, or as directional aids.
  • Pole banners: Also known as boulevard banners, street banners or pole banners, this option is popular and frequently used for university campuses and downtown districts. Pole banners require a durable vinyl with top and bottom pockets and are typically double-sided. They’re a great way to promote community pride or celebrate a milestone.
  • Mesh banners: SpeedPro prints on mesh banner vinyl allowing for free airflow. These banners are great for fences and against a building.
  • Step and repeat banners: These custom banners are generally used for “photo ops” and special events. Backdrops can be made to order, with sponsor logos, company branding or a photo of a place you want to be! Step & repeat banners are popular for brand experiences, corporate functions and more.
  • Pop-up banners: Also known as retractable banners, pop-ups are a popular choice for business presentations, conferences, trade shows, retail promotions and special events.
  • Street banners: These banners, frequently seen hung over roadways, are great for promoting community events such as annual celebrations, running events and festivals.  Webbing sewn into hems is a common city requirement which we supply upon request.
