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.

In general, PVC-free banners are often preferred in eco-conscious settings and for businesses or events that want to reduce their environmental footprint. They are also suitable for indoor use, such as trade shows, where PVC banners might not be as desirable due to potential health concerns associated with PVC off-gassing.
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.
Use our online banner calculator by simply inputting the height and width in any variation of measure along with the quantities required. Our 550gsm banners are available in a wide range of finishes. 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 size banners do you offer?
We are able to print most banner sizes but are restricted to a maximum size of 8ft (H) x 40ft (L). If you know the dimensions for your banner, simply enter the height x width and the quantity required in our custom banner calculator. Remember, we offer quantity discounts, so the more you order, the more you’ll save!
Do you offer a banner design service?
Yes! We have in-house designers that can put your ideas together and deliver the perfect banner design. You can expect a draft proof within 2 days of submitting your design brief.
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.
