Banner Printing in Toronto – Get Your Message Across

Back to Home
Whether these large signs are used indoors to promote a product or special event, or outdoors as an advertisement, banners are an eye-catching way to communicate with passers-by. With bold colours and high impact images, banner printing in Toronto is an important way for retailers and other businesses to convey a message to the public.

A Banner and its Components

The Oxford Dictionary defines banner as, "A long strip of cloth bearing a slogan or design, carried in a demonstration or procession or hung in a public place.”  Banners are also widely used as backdrops during red carpet events, as street banners promoting an event, and as advertisements hung from exhibitors' tables at trade shows.
Banners of all sizes are used for indoor and outdoor purposes and may be printed on one-side only (simplex) or both sides (duplex). Large format printers are used to print banners up to 10 feet in width and height. For outdoor banners, durable material is used to ensure they withstand nature's elements, including snow, rain, wind and heat.
Banners can be hung, fixed to a wall, or they can be free-standing. For banners to be hung, grommets must be incorporated into the material. These are eyelets placed in the banner to protect the material when a rope or cable is passed through it. With the grommets in place, banners can be hung anywhere. Free-standing banners are usually displayed on banner stands. These are portable stands that come in different styles and sizes. Some may be pedestal stands, while others may be retractable, but the main purpose of both is to draw attention to the banner and make it shine. Some banners may have an anti-curl feature, allowing them to be rolled up without compromising the material.

Banner Materials

Banners are usually printed on vinyl, but they can be also be printed on coated paper, canvas and fabric. Being thicker than paper, these materials are more durable and resistant to fading. Another material that banners can be printed on is mesh. Mesh is a polyester material that allows air to pass through and these types of banners are typically found on buildings.
As mentioned, the most common banner material is vinyl. Tear resistant and weather proof, vinyl is an ideal choice for many companies as these banners are extremely durable. Vinyl banners can have an average life of three to five years. Vinyl banners may be produced in the following ways:
  • Digitally printed with the use of large or wide format printers;
  • Screen printed using screens made up of an imaged stencil;
  • Vinyl lettering; and
  • Hand-painted.
