Fabric Banner Materials
All fabric banners are printed using a direct dye sublimation printing process. This process creates a bright, eye popping print because the ink goes through the material instead of just printing on top of the material. Fabric banners look and feel more high end and professional than standard vinyl banners.
Our fabric material is temperature sensitive and due to the printing process it can expand and contract due to heat or cold. Because of this we cannot guarantee the exact size of any fabric product due to temperature fluctuations. We are not responsible for any product received that is too small or big for your purposes. If the size needs to be precise, such as if it is being installed into an existing frame or hardware, please express this to your CSR to discuss your specific application.
Fabric banners are printed on banner soft materials:
- Banner Soft - Used for banners and backdrops
- Most common fabric banner material
- Material has a low shine
- Thicker than Satin Fabric
- Material is fire rated (NFPA-701 certified)

The max print width for fabric banners is 58 inches. If you need something larger the banner will have seams. Some of the most common fabric banner sizes are 2' x 3' banners, 3' x 6' banners and 4' x 10' banners. You can select custom banner sizes from the height and width drop down menus.

In the online designer you will be able to add a background image, upload clip art images and add text. You can also upload your own logos, pictures or other images. If you select the let us design option a pop up window will appear where you can upload any logos or images and provide instructions for a graphic designer.
During the checkout process you can choose to have your artwork go straight into production after payment is received or have an artwork proof emailed to you. The proof will include a low resolution image of your artwork, a summary of your order, pricing information and your billing and shipping information. If you select an additional proof you will have to email the customer service representative back with approval before your order will go into production.
Fabric Banner Finishing Options
The standard finishing option for fabric banners is a sewn hem with grommets. The hems are folded to the back and sewn together. Grommets are placed every 2-4 feet around the perimeter. The grommets are used to help hang the banner. We recommend using all of the grommets provided when you hang your banner.
- Heat sewn 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" or 3". 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.*

Preferred Files for Printing
Adobe Illustrator EPS (Encapsulated Post Script)
Adobe Illustrator AI (Adobe Illustrator)
PDF (Adobe PDF)
When submitting these files, make sure you convert all fonts to outlines or curves to ensure they print correctly and the fonts are not substituted.
Additional Files Accepted
JPG (High Resolution JPEG)
TIFF (High Resolution TIFF)
Thumnail sized jpg and gif files are not a high enough resolution to be used on large prints like banners.
Vector art consists of lines and curves that are mathematically defined objects. When viewing art in key line mode you can see the points or vectors when connecting your lines and curves. They can also be seen when using the pen tool or editing the points along a path. Vector art is ideal for type and drawn shapes because they can be enlarged to any size while maintaining crisp outlines and details without sacrificing quality. The distance between the vectors is calculated mathematically and is not dependent upon resolution.
Raster images consist of colored squares, called pixels. They are created by combining a series of various colored pixels. Digital photographs are made up of pixels. If you view a raster image at 200% or more you are able to see the individual pixels that make up the image. Raster images are dependent upon resolution so image enlargement is limited by the individual size at which the file was created. If a file is produced at a size that is larger than its resolution will allow, the quality will decrease. Printing a low resolution file will result in pixelation. Individual pixels are large enough to be easily discernable. Increasing the resolution will not solve this problem is there are not enough pixels to begin with. The program will add more pixels based upon the estimation of their location and will then assign their neighboring pixels's color value. This may cause an image to look muddy.
If submitting these files, please follow the guidelines below:
100% scale (full size output) at 100 dpi
50% scale at 200 dpi or higher
25% scale at 300 dpi or higher
10% scale at 600-1200 dpi recommended
Vectorizing / Recreating Images
If you are not able to provide us with a good quality image, we do have a vectorizing/recreating service available. Most logos or images can be recreated for $35; however images with more detail are subject to quoting prior to vectorizing the image. Please contact a sales representative for more details.
This service needs to be paid for in advance and we will be happy to give you a copy of the vector file once it is complete.
No bleeds are necessary (unless ordering a banner stand that requires one)
Set up size proportionate to the exact size banner you are ordering.
To prevent any text or important images from falling on the hemline or interrupted by a grommet, you will want to keep them at least 2" away from edge.
