    I tried out a roll of Duratex's 9oz eco-banner and I was wondering if anyone else has used it/is using.

    Im printing with an HP 560 and the ink bleeds a little bit into unprinted areas but it doesn't bleed in-between printed areas which seems odd. I've played around with the optimizer levels without much luck.

    I attached some examples...Im curious to know if anyone else has had similar issues.

    Im on a witch-hunt to find a pvc-free banner material so any product recommendations are welcome too ~

    Duratex was a huge bust from what I remember. What is the application, I have non-pvc options.

    Yah Im hearing lots of bad reviews so far.

    Mainly using it for indoor / shorter term banner applications.
    I was using LexJet's FlexTek but was running into issues with adhesives not grabbing onto the polyester, not to mention its pretty translucent and expensive.

    Price range will really determine which non-pvc route to look into. What is the price range you are looking at spending?

    Well FlexTek is $0.35/sq.ft., and Duratex eco-banner is $0.37/sq.ft. so anywhere around there? Price isn't too much of an issue, over $0.75-ish/sq.ft. would probably be my cap but Im willing to try something out before I say no.
