You likely have discovered the terms 10 ounce or 13 ounce substance, for those who have been looking for a custom vinyl sign banner. Does this matter? The clear answer is absolutely yes.
This implies the vinyl weighs 10 oz per square yard if a vinyl banner is manufactured with 10 ounce substance then. In all our sign banner printing we use 13 ounce to get a double sided vinyl banner and 16-ounce for a single sided banner. It may look like the variation between 10 and 13 ounces would be small but it is actually quite essential. A 8 or 10-ounce substance is not rather heavy compared to 13 ounce stuff. You will be given a great strong banner which will hang straight and keep going longer longer than the usual vinyl banner made with a lighter stuff by using a 13 ounce stuff.
To get a double-sided banner we suggest using a 16 ounce material with a block-out layer. The block-outside layer on a double sided banner is vital because this really is what keeps light or the sunlight from causing a shadow in one side to the other and shinning through. A double-sided vinyl banner also needs to be stronger because of the manner they can be installed. So there's not much stress, while most single-sided banners are attached to fence or a wall put on the material. You'll find also currently concluding alternatives that may add durability and strength to your own vinyl banner. Please see our post on vinyl sign banner ending alternatives.
Another material that's increasing in popularity is what's known as a mesh banner fabric. That is a fabric that is clearly a closely woven net that will permit the current of air through but still permit the sign copy to be easily read. This is recommended in windy conditions.
