Buyers Guide for Durable, High Quality Mesh Banners

by Deborah Scott on February 13, 2015


When you are looking for a quality presentation of your brand and project on your construction site fence banners it is good to know what you are buying.  Here is a quick easy checklist to help you buy the right banners for your project.

Mesh Banner Buyer Checklist 


____  Woven min. 9 oz scrim mesh allows 30% airflow
           necessary for durability and safety


____  Full color, high quality, high resolution printing
           all credible companies should offer this


____  Same price for single or multiple designs with multiple banner orders
           don't compromise on multi-design plan  see examples here


____  Custom sizing
           custom sizes look better - click here to learn more


____  Grommeted on ALL sides every 18"-24"
           tension on all sides makes your banner look neat - learn more


____  Webbing-reinforced stitched hems for strongest wind resistance
           necessary for durability and safety


____  FR Rating: Meets NFPA 701 for fire safety standards
           check for requirements for your site and make sure your banners are in compliance


____  Art File review and notification of potential print quality issues
          Look for companies (people) that care about your final product 


____ PDF proof for your approval prior to printing and shipping
          Expect nothing less.  The PDF is an agreement of what will be printed


____  Short Turn around - typically 10 working days from date of approved proof
           Some may be faster, some may be slower.  Find a solution for your time line.


____  Design services upon request
           As needed.  Not everyone has print ready art files.


____  Installation services upon request
           As needed.  Not everyone has a crew ready to install.



Unfortunately many companies will nickle and dime you through the process.  It is often not until you are at the check out point that you know what your final price is for your banners.   Many hope that by the time you create your account, upload your design files and customize your product, you will be too invested in the process to want to look somewhere else.  Don't be deterred.  Use this check list to simiplify your process and ensure you are comparing apples to apples when comparing prices.

We hope you find this check list valuable to that you can be a smart, informed buyer.
