At Mesh Direct, we understand the perplexity of selecting a printed banner material can be daunting. We’re setting out to help you make the right selection from the Mesh Direct family with these 6 simple questions to ask yourself.

Here are 6 questions to ask yourself when selecting a printed banner.

1. Purpose?

The first thing you need to consider when it comes to your printed banner is it’s purpose. What is the banner intended for, where will it be located and at what distance will it be viewed?

All of these are important factors to consider when selecting a printed banner for your site.

2. Durability?

Another important consideration is durability. How long will the banner be in situ, and subject to what external conditions – temperature, sun, wind, moisture and so on?

How long do you or your client need it to last for? Mesh Direct has numerous options that span short term solutions to long term solutions. We can help you choose the right material for your printed banner and budget in this respect.

3. Finish?

The finish of your banner is also something that needs to be thought out.

Should the banner have a gloss or matt finish, or something in between? These choices affect the aesthetic appearance of the banner, and its view-ability under different lighting conditions.

4. Printability?

Possibly one of the most important questions to ask yourself – how important is the quality of the print? What level of print quality needs to be delivered to meet expectations, considering the target audience, subject and location?

We have a range of products from premium banner mesh to shade cloth that showcase print reproduction differently. It’s best to talk these options over with your Mesh Direct representative.

5. Installation?

Once your banner is printed, you’ll need to think about the installation.

How and where will the banner be installed? This may influence choice of material weight and other hanging properties. Can you install it yourself, or will you need a professional installer?

6. Budget?

The last consideration is often one of the most pressing issues for businesses: budget. You’ll need to ask what balance needs to be struck between performance, aesthetic qualities, and price?

We have products to suit a wide variety of budgets and cost-conscious clients, so be sure to talk to one of our reps today to learn more about your options!
