What Are Mesh Banners
If you’ve been browsing our range of outdoor banners, you might be wondering about our mesh PVC options. As the name suggests, mesh banners are printed on PVC material with rows of tiny holes in it – but what’s the advantage of mesh over a solid sheet of PVC?
Windy weather can be a problem for outdoor banners. It can be difficult to read your banner’s message if it’s blowing around in the breeze – and in particularly heavy winds, banners can billow up and even tear.
This is the key advantage of mesh material; airflow. Those tiny holes allow air to pass through the banner for far less wind resistance, ensuring the visibility of your message and preserving the longevity of your banner investment.
Mesh banner material is particularly useful for displaying on fences, posts and other similar surfaces – unlike a solid wall, these will let the wind through from all angles.
The little holes in mesh PVC also provide a handy weight advantage; which means you can safely hang them from wire fences and other lightweight vertical surfaces.
Less weight also means less hassle when it comes to handling, hanging up and storing away your banner – win-win!
It lets a little light through
This one is a bit of a double-edged sword. Mesh banners will naturally let a bit of light through the holes, which can sometimes be a problem if your artwork design uses lighter colours – but it can also create at attractive backlit look in sunny weather.
(Don’t worry about the sunlight fading your artwork – at Better Printing, each banner is printed with fade-resistant, UV-safe inks.)
The holes are almost invisible
You might think a banner covered in holes would look a bit tatty – but in fact, the holes are so small that they’re only visible from about half a metre away.
Since banners are designed to be visible from a distance, it’s unlikely that your customers will ever see the holes; especially if the banner is hanging against an opaque wall surface.
