Banner advertising is a popular way to promote a business or event. However, not all banners are created equal. The type of material used in a banner can greatly impact its lifespan. Here’s a breakdown of common banner materials and their respective longevity.
Calendered PVC is a popular choice for banners and can last from 3 to 6 years depending on factors like installation, location, maintenance, and care. It's a customer favorite material used by companies all over the world. Metalized polyester banners deliver vivid, vibrant colors and can last for about 2 years. This type of banner is usually used as a temporary decoration.
Cast PVC is one of the most durable vinyl materials used for signs and banners and can last anywhere between 5 to 12 years.
Factors that influence banner longevity include the location of the banner, exposure to sun, wind, and other environmental factors, and the size and design elements used in creating the banner. You can make your outdoor banners last longer by taking them down and storing them when not in use, picking a fabric that is specially made for outdoor use, and choosing a banner material that is solar-resistant.
Wind can also damage outdoor banners very quickly if they are not designed for a high-wind environment. Mesh banners, wind slits, and scrim banners are effective ways to prevent wind damage.
Proper installation and maintenance are crucial in increasing the lifespan of your banner. Quick tips to make your banners last longer include not hanging a wet banner, cleaning your banner regularly with mild soap and water, trimming off any frays, and storing your banner in a cool and dry place.
