Banner INFO Center

What kind of materials do you use for banners?
Zarvox offers a variety of material choices for your banners. High quality is priority at Zarvox, so we print at high resolution on top quality vinyl materials that are manufactured by the best brands on the market such as 3M, Avery, and Oracal. We offer 16oz and 13oz thick vinyl, mesh banners, super smooth vinyl banners, and a double sided vinyl for banners. Our best selling banner material is our new 16oz thick block-out vinyl banners. They are so thick there is no hemming required on the edges. The clean edge and grommets make this choice the most popular one. Mesh Banners are used for outdoor, windy locations when the banner is not placed against a wall. The mesh pattern allows wind to go through the banner without putting pressure on the banner edge connections. Mesh banners are ideal if you need your advertisement placed on a chain link fence or between two poles. Zarvox also sells the most reliable banner stands on the market. Instead of using vinyl for our banner stands, we print your message on a more rigid 10mil thickness non-curling synthetic polyester material. This material is perfect for retractable banner stands or banner signs.

What is the difference between your vinyl banners and super smooth banners?
Our vinyl banner material is made to be viewed from a greater distance. The material used for our super smooth banners has less texture with a poster like appearance, making it more ideal for close-up viewing, such as at trade-shows.

Can you make a banner that is suitable for windy conditions?
Yes, our mesh banners are perfect for outdoor, windy locations when the banner is not placed against a wall. The mesh pattern allows wind to go through the banner without putting pressure on the banner edge connections. Mesh banners are also ideal if you need your advertisement placed on a chain link fence or between two poles.

I am using the banner indoors for a corporate event, what is the best material choice?
Zarvox has a few material options that are great for indoor use, such as at corporate events and trade shows. We sell the most reliable banner stands in the market. Instead of using vinyl for our banner stands, we print your message on a more rigid 10mil thickness non-curling synthetic polyester material called zpop. This material is perfect for retractable banner stands or banner signs. Our best selling banner material is our new 16oz thick block-out vinyl banners. They are so thick there is no hemming required on the edges. The clean edge and grommets make this choice the most popular one.

Can you print a photo backdrop for a corporate event?
Yes, we offer a few options that can be used as backdrops for any event. Our step-and-repeat banners are ideal backdrops for indoor or outdoor media events, tradeshows, fairs or corporate events. These banners repeat a logo or image for a visual impact that will not be distracting in photos or videos. Another backdrop option is a custom removable wall mural that covers an entire wall, similar to wall paper. Designed for indoor use on a smooth wall the mural is fit to your size specifications and can easily be removed after your event.

Can you print a banner that matches the pantone colors in my logo?
Yes, we use the Pantone Matching System (PMS). This is a standardized color system that allows printers to have a matching guide when printing. Using this system we can print using process colors, also known as CMYK, to accurately match the Pantone colors in your design. CMYK is the standard color model in printing and refers to the four inks used: cyan, magenta, yellow and key (black). Full color graphics are produced by using a mixture of cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink.

How long will my banner last?
Long term banner durability can vary and depends on a variety of factors including the vinyl chosen, image colors, and exposure to sun and weather elements.

How much do you charge for banners?
Pricing for banners is dependent upon the size and material chosen, as well as if grommets and hemming are necessary. You can choose the selections that are right for your project on our banner page http://zarvox.com/banner-printing/ and get an immediate custom quote.
