About Fabric Banners
Fabric Banners are indoor banners that have a higher end look and feel than vinyl banners. Fabric banners are printed using a direct dye sublimation printing process. This means that the ink goes through the fabric instead of just sitting on top of the fabric. This makes the colors bright and vibrant. There are two different types of fabric to choose from. Banner soft is the most common fabric. Satin fabric has a shine to the material. The standard finishing option is a folded sewn hem and grommets. Additional finishing options include cut to size or pole pockets.
