PVC Banner Sizes

19th October 2018

A common question often asked to banner printers is - What sizes are PVC Banners? People in the trade will soon tell you that although certain sizes are more popular the real answer to your question is any size you like. The limiting factors on size are really down to the buyer, so you should consider the following three points before deciding on your PVC Banner Sizes.

  1. The location of your banner, obviously if it going on a fence or railing it will need to be scaled according to the fence or railing. If it’s going on a wall, decide on a suitable size that will make it stand out.
  2. Viewing distance – If your banner is going on a trailer in a field beside a motorway a 4ft x 2ft won’t do a thing for you and you would be best with a banner at least 18ft x 8ft depending on the trailer size. If your banner is going on your gates to celebrate a Birthday then a 4ft x 2ft would be quite sufficient.
  3. Budget – PVC Banner Sizes dictate the cost, banners are costed based upon a calculation of area so the bigger the banner the higher the cost, but remember to check for special offer sizes!

Limiting factors from a banner printer’s point of view would be as follows:

  1. The size of the machine width, common limitations are 4ft wide, 6ft wide and 8ft wide.
  2. The roll width of the Banner Vinyl (or PVC). These are generally sized at 3ft, 4ft, 5ft, 6ft and 8ft.
  3. The length of the banner is limited to the roll length (generally 30M or 50M) and the working area or table sizes.
  4. Both the width and length may also be restricted by the limits the couriers accept in terms of size and weight.
