Text Only Banners
Vinyl banners are printed on 13 oz vinyl banner material. Vinyl banners can be used indoors or outdoors. Text only banners have a white background with unlimited colored text. You can not have photographs, clip art, graphics or logos on the banner. If you want these things, you will have to go to the vinyl banners page.

Text Only banners can be up to 16 feet wide by 50 feet long. The most common banner sizes are:
- 3' x 5'
- 3' x 6'
- 4' x 8
- 5' x 10'
Exact sizes of banners cannot be guaranteed. Vinyl is a temperature sensitive material, and some fluctuation can occur due to heat application in printing, finishing, and outside climate. Please note our acceptable size variance is up to 1/2 inch per linear foot (ex. A 5' banner could finish with a 2.5" variance). If your banner needs to be precise, please ask your Customer Service Representative to discuss your specific application.
Product Options / Finishing Options
The standard finishing for vinyl banners is heat welded hems and grommets placed every 2-4 feet around the perimeter. The following finishing options are available:
- Heat welded hems & grommets (standard)
- Hems Only (cut to size - no finishing)
- Grommets Only (no hems)
- Reinforced Corners
- Reinforced Hems
2" pole pocket - fits a 3/4" diameter pole
3" pole pocket - fits a 1 1/4" diameter pole
4" pole pocket - fits a 1 1/2" diameter pole
We recommend reinforced hems and reinforced corners for banners that are over 32 square feet and will be used outdoors for added durability.
By selecting pole pockets, there will be no increase in the finished size of your banner. Pole pockets can either be 2", 3" or 4". We don't recommend having any text or images within 3 inches of the edge of the banner when you select pole pockets.
Please note you can not select pole pockets and reinforced hems or reinforced corners.
Files that print best are .eps or .ai (in version CS5 or lower). You must convert all text to outlines to make sure the fonts come in correctly. We can also print high resolution .pdf, .tif, and .jpg formats. Typically 300 dpi or higher is suitable for banners.
We print in four color C, M, Y, K or six color C, M, Y, K, LC, LM. Please keep this in mind when submitting files for printing as color tone shifting may happen if file is submitted in R, G, B format. If there is a specific PMS color you need, please specify that to us when submitting your order so we can help you verify that the proper color mix is used (vector artwork only).
Customer supplied files are printed as they are received so we cannot guarantee color, clarity or final output as we are just printing the supplied files and have not set them up for printing.
