Let’s talk about these important factors in detail:


The cost-related factors include the size, material used, cost of ink which is measured by the quality of the image used as well the density of the background ink color, final finishing, and the lead time where you will be charged more for the same banner if the need for it is urgent by postponing the already pending orders.

The ink used will determine the durability and longevity of the banner. Most of the high-quality printers which are used made to perform in such a manner that the ink should long last on the banners without putting a big hole in the pocket, an idea which is preferred by most of the companies for carrying out their operations.

Most of these banners have pole pockets, Velcro, or a simple straight trimmed hold and the fabric banners need a different trimming method called a hot knife.

· LEAD TIMES- This is applicable in both cases since the frequency at which the order is placed and received makes the cost go up and down accordingly.

However, fabric banners are preferred here more as well because it allows the folding to be done and can be stored in cold indoor places without damaging it up to any noticeable mark.
