Therefore, most banners will have a long lifespan, usually from 2 years to 7 years and maybe even longer. It lasts from a few weeks to a couple of months on average. Calendered vinyl typically lasts 3 to 6 years, depending on factors such as installation, location, maintenance and care. Calendered vinyl is one of the customer's favorite PVC materials, used by companies around the world.
A high-quality banner, on average, can last between 2 and 12 years. We know that this is quite a large range. However, it is very difficult to reduce a more accurate life expectancy, due to the variety of factors that come into play. Pole banners should last, on average, 2 to 3 years or longer.
However, sun, wind and weather will negatively affect longevity, so professional installation is a must when it comes to wind and weather. Sunny climates will reduce the life expectancy of any pole, vinyl, or polyester sign. Banners: 2-3 years outdoors for digitally printed banners, more than 3 years for vinyl banners. Wind, snow, dirt and other elements can pull out eyelets, weatherproof vinyl lettering, and tear ropes.
With a lifespan of more than 3 years, our vinyl banners are the perfect products for those who want to periodically change their designs every two years. For example, if you live in a windy area, NEVER hang your banner where it can break easily and cause problems. These signs are screen printed with UV inhibiting ink and stitched with double line lock stitching. The more UV inhibitors there are, the longer it can withstand direct sunlight and, consequently, the longer it lasts.
Ideal for cities and towns, these banners will withstand inclement weather and the sun's UV rays for years to come. Therefore, you can place your banner in a cool place or choose a banner material that is resistant to solar energy. Many are one-sided, as there may be budget constraints or the signs may be on a one-way street. The size of a banner and the design elements used to create it also affect the lifespan of the banner.
Printed with bright colors on fabric or vinyl, they can be single or double sided, the latter having a “silver blocking” layer to prevent sunlight from creating shadows from the back of the sign (away from the sun). An area of high sun exposure will degrade banners more quickly than a shaded location, so be sure to select a banner material with sunlight resistant treatment for sunny locations (and make sure you don't leave the banner up when it's not needed). If your outdoor banners are not made with mesh material, wind slots are absolutely necessary to prevent wind damage. Vinyl banners, for example, are made of what is also known as PVC, one of the most commonly used materials.
However, the good news is that you can easily get rid of wrinkles, so they don't compromise the look of your custom banner or take away visual integrity.
