Step and Repeat Banner Material
When choosing the right banner material for your needs you must take in consideration the weight of the material for your application. At L+L Printers we offer two different vinyl banner material weights. These are 13oz. and 18oz. These numbers indicate the weight of the material per square yard and are priced differently which will be reflected in the cost of your banners. If you are not sure which banner material is for you please contact us and we will be more than happy to assist you.
All Step and Repeat banners from L+L Printers include the cost of finishing if desired. You can choose to have either no finishing, hemming or Top & Bottom pole pockets. We hem all of our banners in-house. Unlike banner tape or RF welding, hemming is the best and most cost effective option for the durability of your vinyl banner especially in outdoor applications where windy conditions can pose an issue with wear and tear.
Pole pockets are created by folding over extra material that creates a space or pocket to insert a rigid pole for support. The extra material is wrapped around and is stitched or heat welded to the back of the banner. This creates a smooth two to three inch seam. Pole pockets can be placed at any edge of the banner but are traditionally placed along the top and bottom, but can also be found on either sides. Using pole pockets allow for the banner to be more rigid and taut in appearance thus eliminating sagging. Banners with Pole pockets are especially useful such as free hanging banners from ceilings.
