Dye Sublimation Printing Banners Are Better Than Vinyl Banners(2)


Photo-realistic Prints Introduced
Around 2000, the first dye sub inkjet printers were introduced to the marketplace, introducing a new dye technology that supplanted the older ribbon technology used on a smaller scale by the Gerber Edge® since the 1990’s. This technology enabled the printing industry to move into digital printing using dye sublimation, a technology that fused polyester fabric and dyes together making banners fast with continuous color pattern more similar to photography than the digital print on vinyl banners, which uses ink dots to attain the photographic appearance.
Most dye sublimation banners are used either in conventions, tradeshows, retail, or temporary outdoor displays or fairs. They are typically printed on a poly knit material, which is a heavy duty polyester fabric that displays color brilliantly. Tradeshow booths often use stretch polyester banners for their displays or backdrops as it can be stretched just enough to alleviate any wrinkles, making a great looking display. Retail stores often use either the poly knit dye sub displays or poly satin “posters” that hang from the ceilings in some upper end retail stores. And poly flags are used out of doors most frequently.

What’s so Great About Sublimated Banners and Why You May Need Them
So, why would you choose to these types over vinyl? After all, the message, not the medium, is what will get clients, right? To a point. Vinyl looks cheap. Almost everyone has bought a vinyl banner or two in their career, so they know they’re cheap. Subconsciously clients who see one on your booth at a tradeshow, then go to the next booth and see dye sublimation signs may not even consciously realize that they branded you, your product, your service, and your client care as cheap at the same time.
Do I think you should never use vinyl? Absolutely not. There are places where they are much more at home, like in a home improvement warehouse. In these environments, cloth banner would not be the best choice as the air is often greasy from forklift exhaust and dusty. No one wants to do laundry monthly, so while they’re washable, vinyl type might be a really lousy choice in many environments.
These sublimated graphics are an excellent choice in many instances, so you’ll ultimately be the one who needs to decide when you need them. Find some cool and interesting graphics that you think would suit you best.
