Fabric Banner Material
Fabric banners are printed using a direct dye sublimation printing process. The ink goes through the material to create an eye-popping print. All of our fabric banners are printed in full color. The max print width is 58 inches. We recommend only using fabric banners indoors.
Fabric banners are printed on a variety of different materials:
- Satin Fabric - Used for banners and backdrops
- Material has a high shine
- Material is fire rated (NFPA-701 certified)
- 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)

If you select "Pick a Template" or "Upload a File," you will be taken into the online designer where you can add a background image, upload clip art images, add text, and upload your own graphics. If you want us to design the artwork, choose "Let Us Design" and a pop-up window will appear where you can upload any logos or images and provide special instructions.
For complete guidelines, please visit the artwork specifications page.
Files that print best are .eps or .ai (in version CS5 or lower) converted to outline. We can also print high resolution .pdf, .tif, and .jpg formats. Typically 300 dpi or higher is suitable for banners.
We print in four colors CMYK or six colors CMYK, LC, LM. Please keep this in mind when submitting files for printing as color tone shifting may happen if the file is submitted in RGB 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 submitted, so we cannot guarantee color, clarity or final output since we are printing only the supplied files and have not set them up for printing.
All of our printers are calibrated daily to ICC coloring profile standards to ensure accurate color production.
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 or call the customer service representative back with approval before your order will go into production.
*We review all artwork before putting it into production. If we notice that the quality of your artwork is too low for production, we will email you even if you didn't select the additional artwork proof.
Fabric Banner Finishing Options
The standard finish is sewn hems and grommets every 2-4 feet around the banner perimeter. Other finishing options include:
- Hot Knife (cut to edge)
- Hems only
- Pole pockets
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.
Pole Pocket Size Options
2" pole pocket - fits a 3/4" diameter pole.
3" pole pocket - fits a 1 1/4" diameter pole.
