What types of materials are banners made of?
 This is a good question and is quite simple on the surface, although there are many variations within each category.
The two main categories of banner materials: vinyl (PVC) and fabric or cloth banners. That’s the easy answer.
However, it is helpful to know the variations within each category, so I’ll start with the vinyl banner category first, as it’s simpler, I think.

First off, PVC or vinyl banners come to us as roll stock, and we either screen print (becoming less common), or digitally print these banners on a wide format digital printer.
There are several weights available, the most common being (at least in our shop) 10 oz., 13 oz., 15 oz., and 18 oz. The ounces refers to the weight of the banner per square yard of material. The heavier the weight, the more durable, although installation methods are often of utmost importance in the life of any outdoor vinyl banner.

With these materials, most are also available with a blockout layer between the sides that allows us to print both sides of the material without having a shadow show through the back side.
Another type of vinyl banners is the mesh vinyl banner, which is a perforated material that is printed with a backing sheet on it to prevent ink from spraying all over the printing platen on the digital printer. This material allows a certain amount of wind to pass through it, thus reducing the wind load from 10 to 20% on average.
The second main category is fabric banners, which are most frequently made using polyester, nylon, or other synthetic fabrics. Most of these banners are currently printed using a printing method called dye sublimation printing.
Some street banners and cloth banners are also screen printed if the volume of printing justifies setting up the screens to do so, or the print shop specialized in street banners created by screen printing.
