Vinyl: The Magic Material

What do shower curtains, shoe heels, and golf balls have to do with high-quality, durable outdoor posters? Each is, or was once, made with vinyl. One of the most versatile and the second most used plastic in the world, it was discovered on accident at least twice, first in France in the 1830s and later in the 1870s in Germany. However, it was not until the 1920s that it was truly used and by an American inventor named Waldo Semon who created some 5,000 other synthetics, but none capable of preserving the Beatles with superior capture of the original sound waves. Originally known as PVC, polyvinyl chloride, it was used in tubing and wiring, including wiring in many US Navy ships in World War II.

Nowadays, though, what are the advantages of ordering large format banners made of vinyl? Well, the first answer is flexibility. Vinyl is lightweight and travels easily, but is still durable enough to put up with most anything the weather might throw at it, making them great for the outdoors. The other big advantage to vinyl is that it captures color exceptionally well. If you want your beautiful, distinctive, vivid design to really stand out, vinyl is the ideal substance to print it on, and we can work with you to establish your custom specifications for all your banners or banner stands. The last, is, obviously, how very cost effective the material can be, nowhere more so than right here at Mega Format.
