    The City requires that cross street banners need to be one 10 oz mesh banner hemmed and grommets printed both sides. Not two banners sewed together. Does anyone out there make that? I can find 12 oz. but not 10 oz.

    has anyone actually done one? I didn't know you could even get a mesh banner printed double sided.

    Also, I think you want it to be heavier weight so it doesn't tear apart. I could be wrong, but I assume the weight is the weight before its peforated. And depending on the perf count, a 12 oz banner could actually weigh less than a 10 oz one.

    like i said, once you perforate 12oz 25%, you effectively only have 8oz of weight per sqft (or whatever area that weight is calculated by.)

    I've never heard of a double-sided print on mesh, but I would assume the image would bleed through significantly. You wouldn't want to design anything with a white background, probably.

    I don't think that is the way it works. It's not perforated it is a mesh material before printed. Besides, City hall isn't going to do the math. If they look at it at all they are just going to say 12 oz doesn't fly!

    I agree. That is likely the way we will go, but if the City rejects it I'm not paying for it. The decision is above my pay grade.
