FABRIC PRESS

Basically there are two main media choices for banner displays: Fabric and Vinyl.  However, within these two choices lie a myriad of options.  So let’s do a materials “101” course. Vinyl is typically produced using digital printing on a grand-format digital press. Vinyl comes in different weights and sizes.  EG, “13oz”  Ounces refer to the weight of the media per SQ yard of banner; if the weight is greater, the banner will be more robust. Installing vinyl displays is a critical step, and requires the correct supplies and tools.  Vinyl is a very popular choice for indoor or outdoor displays because of its reliability. Vinyl is also CHEAP!  However, vinyl is also HEAVY, BULKY, and hard to transport, but it has its uses. Fabric on the other hand is usually made from polyester, nylon, satin, or synthetic fibers. Fabric gives you such a variety of end uses, and with the right press (Durst 500r), you can create very large sized, seamless prints and banners up to 5 meters in width. Dye sublimation is the process mostly used involving fabric.  Fabric is taking over vinyl applications for tradeshows.  The color, once it passes through the heat process, ‘pops’ into extremely vibrant colors.   One printing option involves pressure and high temps to ‘transfer’ images from transfer paper to the fabric.  The other is direct.  Dye sublimation is truly becoming the wave of the future in grand format printing because it can be utilized in so many settings.   Think of it, Trade shows, airport terminals, retail space, exhibits, any kind of showroom, etc.  Fabric installation is simple and noticeably light weight when compared to vinyl, easy to ship, and aesthetically pleasing.  So let us at XL4Resale help you either as a grand format printing wholesaler or get you your very own grand format press.  Vutek GS3250, Durst 500r, Durst Rho 1000, Oce Arizona, etc.
