Vinyl Pole Banner Features
Use SignMonster's convenient design and ordering tools to create the perfect pole banner for what you need. Standard features include:
Premium grade material
Banner excellence begins with high quality material. We use 18-ounce blockout matte vinyl, an ultra-sturdy material that is precision engineered for superior strength, lasting durability, and optimum performance in all conditions. It's UV safe and waterproof, to withstand both sunlight and moisture. It's also an ideal weight and thickness to display easily indoors or outdoors.
Don't settle for cheap material that fades or deteriorates after only a handful of uses. The noticeable difference in material quality is one reason SignMonster terrifies the competition!
Integrated pole pockets
Built-in pole pockets means installing is faster, easier, and more secure. Integrated pole pockets also ensure optimal visibility and performance: the design allows banners to display flat and steady, so that viewing is not compromised by normal winds and weather. Pole pockets are finished to the ordered banner size and are not an addition to length or width.
Integrated pole pockets make a qualitative difference in your banners. Trust SignMonster to understand your business need for the best pole banner products.
It doesn't matter how much care you put into designing the perfect image and text for your banner if it falls apart and no one sees it. Premium durability is a SignMonster trademark: our banners are designed to withstand not only everyday wear-and-tear but also punishing outdoor conditions of persistent sun, wind, and moisture.
Your choice of heat-welded or stitched pole pocket finishing provides an even higher level of resistance to fraying and tearing, without adding weight. Our commitment to durability delivers lasting value for your banner investment.
High quality printing
All of our banners are printed using 6 Color HP Latex Print Technology tools, in High Pass High Quality Mode, which is the industry's preferred standard for high quality image printing. Premium print quality for your banner sets you above the competition.
Lower quality standards for printing can result in images that are faded, blurry, or appear unprofessional, which affects how your messaging is received. SignMonster doesn't cut corners for image quality – when you choose us for your pole banner project, you know you're getting results that make an impact with your audience.
Printing on both sides is standard for our pole banners. This provides the greatest exposure and maximizes the ability of viewers to see your messaging from two directions. Double-sided printing is perfect for display along walkways, roads, bike paths, parking lots, and any other high traffic area – it's like getting two banners for the price of one!
We also offer single-sided pole banners, for applications that require viewing from only one direction.
Our pole banners feature #2 size grommets in anodized black, white or silver, installed every two feet around the perimeter, four corners only, or top corners only. The grommets provide additional strength along the hem lines and can also be fastened with zip ties, for extra security in especially windy conditions.
Wind vents optional
Venting reduces potential damage from wind and atmospheric conditions. We recommend wind vents for all pole banners that are intended for outdoor display in areas prone to windiness. Some municipalities may require wind vents for pole pocket banners, check with your local Chamber of Commerce or relevant authority for more information.
Wind vents are one more reason to choose SignMonster – we're always aware that your banner investment needs to return optimal value.
