Order Summary


550gsm PVC Free Banners from Cheap as Prints

PVC-free banner is a type of banner material that is both durable and environmentally friendly. The 550gsm refers to the weight or thickness of the banner material. GSM stands for “grams per square meter.” In this case, a 550 GSM banner is relatively thick and durable, making it suitable for outdoor use and situations where you need a durable banner that can withstand wind, rain, and other weather conditions.

PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride, a type of plastic that is commonly used in banner materials. PVC can have negative environmental impacts because it does not readily biodegrade and can release harmful chemicals when disposed of improperly. A PVC-free banner, on the other hand, is made from alternative materials that are more environmentally friendly. These materials can include fabric, paper, or other non-PVC plastics.

As part of our journey to net zero, we are constantly reviewing our range of materials. As a result, our 550gsm PVC-free media is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional banner media. The material is just as hard-wearing as standard PVC vinyl, however, does not contain chlorine and dioxins. It is therefore easier to dispose of than its PVC counterpart. Additionally, there is no efficient way to dispose of regular PVC. When thrown into either landfill or an incinerator, and released in high concentrations, it can discharge toxins that negatively impact both humans and the environment. Opting to purchase a PVC-free banner is a positive step forward in ensuring our place of living and the environment are moving away from using less sustainable materials.

These include hemming, eyelets, clean-cut edges, silicon edges, Velcro edges, and pole pockets. The most popular type of finish is hemming with eyelets allowing you to hang your display with screws and washers or cable ties. When ordering a 550 GSM PVC-free banner, you can expect a robust and heavy-duty material that is designed to be both durable and eco-friendly.

  • What do you meany by PVC free?

    Our Kavalan PVC free banners are recyclable and environmentally friendly compared to standard PVC. The material does not add to landfill and therefore reduces the impact of end-of-life disposal. In the unforeseen circumstances that Kavalan does accidentally end up in landfill, its non-polluting, water–based and biodegradable coating will easily decompose. Kavalan can also be green-incinerated to generate electricity – an additional benefit to many other ‘recycled’ products, which can’t follow this process. Kavalan ash is also a useful product for road maintenance, whereas other recycled products have to go to landfill.

  • How durable is the 550gsm free banner media?

    The 550gsm PVC free media is hard-wearing and coated with a matt finish. The print surface is relatively smooth meaning greater clarity without ripples. It is suitable for medium to long-term external displays with a life span of 5 years and is resistant to cracking at low temperatures.

  • What sizes are available for PVC banners?

    PVC banners come in various sizes, catering to different display requirements. Standard sizes range from small banners suitable for storefronts to large-format banners for events and outdoor advertising.

  • What finishing options are available for PVC banners?

    PVC banners often come with various finishing options, including hemming, eyelets, and pole pockets. These features enhance the banner’s strength, facilitate easy installation, and provide versatility in how the banner can be displayed.

  • How do I display my PVC banner?

    Unless specified otherwise, our 550gsm PVC free banners will be supplied with re-inforced hemmed edges and eyelets. This will make it easy to attach against a building wall or above a shop. Simply use large penny washers over the front of the eyelets and secure using screws inside a raw plug.

    If the banner is to be attached to a fence or railings, then you can either use cable ties or a rope to secure it. For best results, we recommend bungee cords as they act like shock absorbers. This will decrease the chances of the banner tearing or ripping in windy conditions. For extremely windy conditions or severe weather conditions, we recommend opting for our PVC free mesh banners. This material is lighter and includes thousands of tiny holes allowing light, wind and sound to pass.

  • How long will my banner last?

    Banners are best suited as temporary signage. The longevity of banners will depend on where and how it is used. If displayed indoors it will last for many years. For outdoor applications, the limiting factor may be how the banner is displayed and the weather. If the banner is fixed to a wall it will last for years without damage.

  • What can I do to preserve the lifespan of my banner?

    You can protect your banner by making sure it does not flap against walls or sharp edges. The banner should be taken down in extreme weather conditions, especially in high winds. Be sure to use all the eyelets to secure down the banner, not just the end ones. When not in use, make sure it is rolled up with the graphics facing inwards. To further protect it from creases, we recommend storing your banner in a tube.

  • How are PVC banners installed?

    PVC banners can be installed using a variety of methods, depending on the banner’s features. Common installation methods include hanging with ropes, securing with bungee cords, or attaching to structures using pole pockets.

  • Are PVC banners easy to clean?

    PVC banners are relatively easy to clean. They can be wiped down with a damp cloth to remove dirt or grime. For more stubborn stains, a mild detergent solution can be used.

  • What is the expected lifespan of a PVC banner?

    The lifespan of a PVC banner depends on factors such as exposure to weather conditions and proper maintenance. With good care and suitable storage, PVC banners can last for several years, making them a cost-effective advertising solution.
