As leaders in the mesh printing industry, we've got a lot of knowledge to share with our clients about the various benefits and need-to-know information when it comes to using banner mesh. Whether you're in the construction industry, development or events and festivals, you'll need to consider a number of factors before you commission your mesh printing job.

We sat down with our production team and grand format printing experts to curate the top tier knowledge you'll need in terms of mesh printing. So without further ado, here are 5 things you need to know about mesh printing.

1. Wind flow affects your mesh

You'd be surprised at how many people don't consider the elements when commissioning mesh banners for their sites. Wind flow is a massive factor to keep in mind when discussing your mesh printing options with your representative.

Selecting the wrong type of mesh for the conditions of your site can mean that your signage and temporary fencing won't last the distance. For high wind areas, you'll need what's called wind mesh. This mesh is specially created for areas that experience a high wind load, and is made with larger perforation than that of standard and premium mesh.

This means that the wind passes through the mesh easily, and doesn't interfere with the temporary fencing or presentation of the signage.

2. The types of mesh material

Here at Mesh Direct, we offer a number of types of mesh material for your mesh printing needs: shade cloth, wind mesh, standard banner mesh, and premium banner mesh.

We offer these varieties so our clients have a broad spectrum of choices when it comes to their specific purposes and their budgets. We work closely with them, and talk them through the material options so that their banner mesh printing job yields the best possible results.

3. Simple install

People usually assume that with great fence signage, comes great difficulty with install. That couldn't be further from the truth when it comes to our mesh banner products. All of our mesh fencing and mesh panels are designed with ease of install in mind. Most of our banner mesh can be installed using a simple process of cable ties and metal eyelets, which are spaced evenly over the top and bottom of the sign.

If you'd rather have a professional installer, we can arrange that for you as well.

4. Versatile mesh printing

Mesh printing offers fantastic versatility when it comes to your printing needs. Our substrates and inks are of the highest quality, meaning that our print reproduction is unparalleled.

We can print your business's logo, artwork and colour scheme across your mesh banner, or alternatively, advertise your new development or festival. The printing options are endless!

We provide mesh fencing for a range of different uses: construction sites, festivals, building wraps, and large scale developments. Simply speak to our consultants about your needs, and we'll customise your experience.

5. Create brand awareness

We talk a lot about creating brand awareness, and that's because it's such an important aspect of running a business, no matter what that business is.

Utilising printed signage like banner mesh is a great way to get your brand and business out in front of potential new clients, as well as showcasing the quality of the projects you're currently working on.
