Advantages of Promotional Banners 

Vinyl Banners – This banner type can be used for either outdoor or indoor. It can be hanged on the ceiling, attached to the wall, or can be mounted in a banner stand. One of the best features of vinyl banners is that they are worth the cost for its durability. It is the type of material that can repel liquid and can stand for a long time when printed with a UV-resistant ink. The only downside of banners made of vinyl is that you have to carefully mount them outdoors. Sometimes, they may require you to cut them with small slits to prevent the material from being ruined by the wind.

Mesh Banners – To alleviate damaging the beauty of your promotional banner with a slit, using mesh banners is the solution. Mesh banners are great for outdoor advertising. They are made of vinyl strands with a woven-like surface that allows the rain and wind to pass through. This material can relieve you of the worries that your branding material will tear due to strong wind.

Fabric Banners – When you wanted to create a professional branding material that looks out of the ordinary, using fabric is an appealing choice. On the other hand, fabric banners are better used indoors rather than outdoors. Like a regular cloth, fabric can easily get stained or wet.

Another important benefit of fabric as an indoor branding material is its environmental friendliness. Compared to the regular vinyl, the production of fabric uses 75% lesser carbon footprint
