Of course!

You will get just about any design or color scheme you need on the custom tradeshow banner.

"What is your minimum order for custom tradeshow banners?"

The minimum order for a custom tradeshow banner is just one!

Quantity discounts begin with merely two custom tradeshow banners. Not surprisingly, the more you buy at once, the better you save (like all our custom signs).

Although custom tradeshow banners are available by other sign companies, we're not a big fan of utilizing PVC Plastic Sign material outdoors. PVC Plastic Signs are sensitive to solar heat which may make the plastic sign material to warp. Plus, there's virtually no price savings over the predictable qualities of aluminum.

"Do you offer any quantity discounts for custom tradeshow banners?"

Definitely!

The more custom tradeshow banners you get, the less every one will cost you. This means that your custom tradeshow banners can reach an increased number of individuals for a more cost-efficient price!

"What if my custom tradeshow banner arrives with a flaw or maybe scratched...what can be done?"

If your custom tradeshow banners or any other merchandise comes defective or comes with manufacturing flaws, please speak to Customer Service via Live Chat or give us a call at 1-800-899-6272 immediately. Manufacturing defects fit in our Workmanship Guarantee, therefore we will replace your sign for free.

If you are attempting to contact us after business hours, you are able to e-mail us at service@SignsUS.com and we will reply when business hours resume.

"Can I make my trade show banner two-sided?"

Yes! SignsUS offers ghost-free, two-sided vinyl banners!

Standard vinyl banner material is “translucent”. In other words, you can see the light right through it. So if you put letters on both sides of standard banner material, a faint ghost image of the letters are visible on the other side of the banner. This ghosting effect can distract you’re your message and doesn’t look professional.

Therefore by specifying a “16 ounce blockout banner material” for your double-sided vinyl banners, you will avoid the see-through effect while adding significant strength to your custom banner For maximum durability and wind resistance, double-sided vinyl banners should have hems and grommets placed every 30”.

"What is the best type of banner material to use indoors?"

The same banner material that’s used for outdoor banners is great for indoor banners too. If your audience is going to be viewing your banner up close though, we offer a premium “Super Smooth” banner material option at no additional charge.

"Which type of banner material is recommended for trade shows?"

However, since a trade show is where everyone is “showing off”, there is a more popular, higher end option to consider to make sure your booth really stands out in the crowd.

If you wish to project the best possible Corporate Image, there’s nothing better than a full-color Flexible Plastic Banner (yes, plastic). When digitally printed on a high resolution printer, this photo receptive plastic banner material will project the highest quality appearance possible. Plus, it’s so durable and flexible, it can be used again and again with a portable, retractable banner stand.

Our premium trade show banners are printed directly onto the plastic film using our high resolution, full-color printer and then protected with a laminate film on the back to preserve the image from show to show.

Visit our banner display and mounting accessories page for other display ideas.

"What are the finishing options for custom trade show banners?"

All vinyl banners can be used indoors or out. How the banners will be used (displayed), normally prescribes how the banner is finished. When displaying banners outside, always think safety first. Be sure the supporting structure is sound. Vinyl banners hung out in the open can be subject to significant wind loads. Be sure you secure your vinyl banner well using the instructions included with your order.

Style A: Hemmed edges with grommets at the top and bottom as needed. (Number of grommets needed depends on banner size)

This is the most common finishing, and is useful for a variety of applications. It is best for mounting against a wall or fence.

Style A Vinyl Banner mounting option
Style B Vinyl Banner mounting option

Style B: Hemmed edges with grommets at the top and bottom as needed, with rope sewn into the top and bottom hems. The rope ends extend out from the banner edge making ties. Rope length can be specified.

This finishing style adds versatility and strength to the basic grommet style, allowing the banner to be tied between poles or other secure fixtures.

Style C: Hemmed edges with rope sewn into the top and bottom hems. Rope extends from banner making ties. Rope length can be specified.

For vinyl banners tied between secure fixtures, this has strong construction, as it spreads wind forces over the length of the banner.

Style C Vinyl Banner mounting option
Style D Vinyl Banner mounting option

Style D: Hemmed sides with webbing sewn into top and bottom. Webbing extends as needed for ties.

This is an even stronger construction for vinyl banners that may be subjected to higher wind loads.

Style E: Hemmed sides, webbing top and bottom with grommets spaced as needed (depending on banner size).

Adding grommets offers more tie down points. This is especially helpful to support larger vinyl banners and to eliminate sagging. (Make sure the supporting structure will allow for it.)

Style E Vinyl Banner mounting option
Style F Vinyl Banner mounting option

Styles F: To support banners on hardware, sleeves can be sewn into the top and bottom of the banner. The sleeve can be sized to fit the hardware: the circumference (dia. X 3.14) of the supporting pole divided by 2 plus an inch will calculate a good sleeve size.

Style G: Grommets can be added to the top and bottom in an extra extension above and below the sleeves for more versatility in display options.

Style G Vinyl Banner mounting option
Style H Vinyl Banner mounting option

Style H: Street banners (or light pole banners) are usually finished with top and bottom sleeves with a grommet just below the top sleeve and just above the bottom sleeve.

Style I: For a very strong construction which will be attached using ties you supply, sewn in webbing with "D" rings offers a very reliable solution. When adding tie points to large vinyl banners, grommets can be added to the top and bottom, or even on the sides.
