Five Things You Need to Know About Canvas and Fabric Signs for your Business

by Alicia Peregory on October 7, 2015

Fabric banners are often found in stadiums, conferences and local markets. Canvas and fabric signs are durable and have a very high-end look to them. Because of their light weight, fabric banners are easy to store and inexpensive to ship, making them a great option for trade shows.

Here are some reasons why fabric and canvas signage is a great option for your business.

No Glare or Worry of a Scratched Finish

Fabric banners are built using thick polyester. The ink is bonded to their fibers using a heat transfer. If a banner is damaged or gets dirty during transport from a trade show or event, the banner can be machine washed or sent to the dry cleaner, depending on the fabric.

A More Realistic Photograph

Photographic images look more realistic with this form of printing because the colors are not laid down as individual dots, as they are with inkjet printers. Direct printing of your fabric graphics will give you sharper, more brilliant images. Direct printing of fabric graphics uses a steam process to embed the ink into the fabric, and can be used on fabrics like silk and cotton.

Custom BannersEasy to Store & Set Up

Fabric and canvas banners are lightweight, which makes them easy to store. Simply roll up your banner with the image facing out and store it in the protected tube. Small stains can be wiped off with light detergent. Just be sure that your banner is dry before storing it.


Fabric banners are extremely cost effective and can be used in so many ways. Fabric banners are often seen hanging on lamp posts on college campuses, Mesh Bannersadvertising local businesses at the high school football game, and many more locations. These affordable signs make it easy to promote your business or event without breaking the bank.

Indoor/Outdoor—all of it works

Fabric banners are built to withstand the outside elements. In the event of rain, heavy winds or snow, fabric banners will return to their original state quickly and with no signs of damage. This explains why you often see fabric banners attached to tents at the farmers market. These banners are long-lasting and are as flexible as you make them.
