Los Angeles Signs | Are Mesh Banners the same as Vinyl Banners?

What are mesh banners?

Mesh banners are lightweight outdoor banners, printed on special vinyl that has holes throughout the banner. They look similar to a sports jersey. The vinyl mesh is very fine, so you still see the design on your banner.  Vinyl banners are opaque.

What are mesh banners good for?

Mesh banners are great outdoors because the wind flows right through them. For the most part, mesh banners last longer than regular vinyl banners outside because they reduce wind resistance. That means less wear and tear on your banner’s hem and grommets.

Besides making your banner last longer, mesh banners make it easier to read your message because there are no big wind slits or wrinkles. Mesh banners lie flat much more easily because the wind goes right through them.

Whether you are placing a large banner over the street for a few weeks, or hanging a small banner in a windy area, mesh banners ensure that people will be able to read your message, and your banner will hang outdoors for a long time.  Mesh banners are recommended in windy areas.
