Generally, Mesh Banners are used for outdoor events such as festivals, celebrations, and concerts because they allow wind and sound to pass through the material. Another common use is for store front banners. Mesh Banner material permits some visibility through windows and also allows natural light into the store.
Mesh Banners are suitable for situations where a banner will be subjected to high wind conditions. Since the material is more lightweight, mesh is a viable alternative to vinyl to counteract the “sail” effect in windy conditions.
Mesh Banners are custom printed at 600dpi on 1 side of our 8oz. mesh vinyl material. UV Inks provide bright vivid colors that last up to 5 year outdoors. If you are looking for large format banners to hide scaffolding on a construction job, or expect to subject your banner in heavy winds, Mesh Banners are the preferred choice.
The choice between a mesh banner and a vinyl banner has more to do with its usage than with its message, but as you can see from these photos, your selection of artwork for a mesh banner is an important factor. Mesh banners are designed primarily for outdoor use and are specifically constructed to move with the wind. The ‘holes” that allow the wind to blow through the sign also affect how the image appears. Artwork, logos, and photos will appear clearer and crisper on a vinyl banner than on a mesh banner, although some art and images can still be utilized on mesh surfaces with satisfactory results. For optimum impact, use simple art and fonts on mesh banners and expect the colors to be somewhat “softer” or muted. Bolder colors will and more intricate artwork and logos will present better on a vinyl banner.
