15oz Two‐Sided Super Smooth Banners

Description

Super Smooth Banners are printed in full color on one or two sides of 15 oz or 18 oz. Super Smooth BlockOut Vinyl, with sizes ranging from 2' x 2' to a huge 150' x 8'. Our 15oz & 18oz Super Smooth Block-Out Vinyl provides you with the same quality as 14oz Scrim Vinyl, with the added value of completely blocking out the sun and artificial light sources on a Super Smooth 2-sided surface. Super Smooth Block-Out Vinyl has a more consistent surface in which there is no texture noticeable. Another great feature about this vinyl is double sided printing. From street double sided banners to indoor elegant presentations, our 15oz and 18oz Vinyl will make the difference in your advertisement. We offer a variety of finishing options, including hemming, grommets, and pole pockets.

Note:
Because of the wide potential size range of our large format products, there are additional file setup considerations. Proofs are typically shown half size. For other details, please review the file setup section carefully.

Due to material, all substrates may expand or shrink from batch to batch, which makes exact cuts very difficult. We do not recommend borders. If you would like borders, please make sure they are at least 2" thick. We will not reprint if the borders are not exactly the same on all sides after cutting.

Recommendations

Our Super Smooth Vinyl Banners are Museum qualty large format printing option. Almost always, our Super Smooth Banners print in full-color on one side (4/0) or two sides (4/4) and are finished with hemming and grommets, pole pockets or wind cutouts as required.

Marketing Tips

Super Smooth one and two sided Banners communicate your message in a highly visible way. Super Smooth Banners are your tool to go big with your message. They can be used in a number of ways, including temporary signage, making printed announcements you want everyone to see. If you're opening a new store, having a sale, or announcing an event and you want to let your customers know, use our Super Smooth Banners.

Consider adding a QR code to your design to link directly to additional online information. This can be a great way to provide more detail than you would want to cram onto your Banner. Since a QR code can link to an online message, you can change the online message without the need to reprint the QR code.

Grommets

Grommets are round, metal hole reinforcements. For our grommets we use Silver Nickel Grommets Size #2 (3/4" outside diameter) with a hole diameter of 3/8". Grommets are available in 2 or 4 corners or placed an average of every 3 feet for larger printed pieces. All Banners equal and smaller than 4ft x 2ft will only include grommets in the corners.

Wind Holes

Wind Slits are slit cuts into the banner with the intent of giving the wind a way to blow through the banner and reduce the stress on the banner or on how the banner is installed. These cuts are made in the shape of a half circle or half-moon. Wind Slits are positioned with discretion to not interfere with any main or important text in the design of the banner.

Pole Pockets

Pole pockets are made by folding an extra 3 inches of blank media towards the back side of the banner and sewing it together. Your artwork should include a "safety zone" of 3", within your final size, along the sides that the pole pocket will be created. Avoid any important text or logos in this area. If you have a white background on your artwork please include a bounding box with a gray 1pt stroke.

For 8 feet (height) banners please be advised that the pole pockets will reduce your final size 6 inches due to the pocket fold. Pole pockets longer than 8 feet may include an extra charge of $10.00.

If you need a pole pocket for a pole thicker than 1" please indicated in the Special Instructions Box at the time of uploading your artwork.

Instructions for Double Sided Banners with Pole Pockets:

1. Measure the Height of the Base , if any, from the top of the upper pole to the bottom of the lower pole. (This Height will be your Final Size.This size)

2. Measure the thickness of the Pole.

3. After measuring the thickness of the pole, double that quantity and bleed out that measure on your artwork in the top and in the bottom.

4. The bleed out section on your artwork will be fold in backwards to create the pole pocket. Please make sure the fold will not cover any important information in the other side within your final size. Your safety area will be the same measure as the Bleed out measure.

5. If you have a different image on the back of your banner: On the Front Side, in the Bleed out Section, flip your image horizontally and vertically to maintain a continous artwork on your back side.

Pole Pocket Dimensions:

  • 1" Pole - Bleed 3"

File Preparation

In order to ensure your files are print-ready, we recommend that you upload them in PDF format. When you generate a print-ready PDF, your computer will use the settings in Adobe Acrobat Distiller or any other PDF generating programs you may use. Please make sure that these are set properly before generating your PDF file. Click here to see our preferred PDF settings.

We also accept .JPG (JPEG), .EPS and .TIF (TIFF) file types, however PDF is the preferred format.

Check your file to make sure it meets our file creation guidelines. This will help speed up the production of your project and give your printed piece the best results.

  1. Use the CMYK colorspace (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK). These are industry standard printing colors. CMYK colors are different than RGB (Red, Green, Blue), which are used to display colors on your screen.

  2. Use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for image files.
  3. All fonts need to be outlined or embedded. For more information on fonts, please Click Here
  4. Specify trim area with crop marks. (Don't place crop marks inside the work area.) For more information on crop marks, please Click Here
  5. Artwork should have 1/8" (0.125") bleed extending past the trim line. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge. For more information on bleed, please Click Here
  6. Safe Area is the 1/8" (0.125") area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge. For more information on safe area, please Click Here
  7. If you want printed borders, they must be placed a minimum of 1/8" (0.125") inside the trim line and include bleed. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.For more information on borders, please Click Here

Bleed and Safe Area

We require that you extend any images that run up to the trim line a minimum of 1/8" (0.125") past the trim line to create "bleed". Depending on what program you use to create your file, this may or may not change the total image area of your file. Programs like Photoshop that do not allow the creation of "bleed" or the addition of crop marks will require an image area that is 1/4" (0.25") larger than your desired final overall image area in both dimensions.

Safe Area is the 1/8" (0.125") area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge. If you choose to make less than this minimum clearance, we will NOT be responsible for items that are cut off in this area.
