Keep Those Banners High & Dry with Water-Resistant Media

Sure, April Showers are supposed to be coming to an end, but let’s be honest: We all know that with our wacky weather this year, the rainy days will continue. When it comes to outdoor signage, water-resistance is a key factor for graphics that can stand up to the elements. We gathered three of our top-performing outdoor media in vinyl, polyethylene and mesh that’ll resist the rain:

LexJet TOUGHcoat Blockout ThriftyBanner: This cost-effective, aqueous-compatible scrim vinyl option not only handles the outdoors for up to six month, it also provides a black backing for 100% opacity. With a great color gamut and smooth surface, it’s an excellent option for event signage or when you need to keep unsightly areas covered, like construction sites or even old signage.

HP HDPE Reinforced Banner: A great option for your environmentally conscious customers who care about recycling, this high density polyethylene reinforced banner is a cost-conscious option (starting at $0.33/sq ft). An alternative to scrim vinyl, this lightweight banner material resists the elements thanks to an HP media surface treatment that’s durable and provides great-looking graphics, too.

HEYtex Mesh w/ Liner: This latex-friendly banner option not only withstands the rain, but can take on the wind, too. This 360gsm polyester base with a 60/40 mesh pattern is an attractive alternative that maintains the integrity of your graphics without having to cut wind vents. It’s easy to grommet and hang, making it a go-to for latex, solvent, eco-solvent or UV-curable print technologies.
