Frequently Asked Questions
Are cloth banners expensive?
The good news is: Not at all! They used to be, but in mid 2021, while pricing on raw goods started to increase across the industry, NorthCoast Banners found a way to find better pricing on cloth materials so our band clients can buy cloth band backdrops and cloth scrims at great pricing. They are only slightly higher in cost than mesh. Contact us for a price quote today!
Are vinyl mesh banners good for indoor shows and outdoor shows?
You can certainly use vinyl mesh banners for both indoor and outdoor shows. Since they are a 70/30 weave material, they allow air and sound to pass through the banners, reducing the tension on the stage, or your banner stand structure.
How can I hang my banners?
Both our cloth and vinyl mesh banners can be finished with pole pockets top and bottom, and grommets every 2′ all four sides. This allows you to hang them using zip ties, rope, or anything else you have available. You can also use the pole pockets to slide your stand through the pockets.
What is the life expectancy of a cloth or mesh banner?
It depends how much you use them, and the weather conditions. But for the most part, our customers report using their banners for at least 2 to 3 years without any problems, or even up to 4 to 5 years. That makes it a sure investment!
